DPReview and Lenstip Fujinon XF16-80mm f/4 Reviews



DPReivew says about the Fujinon XF16-80mm f/4:

  • at 80mm corners are a little bit soft even at f/8
  • at 40mm corner performance improves
  • at 16mm corners fall apart again, even at f/8
  • center looks very sharp
  • minimal chromatic aberration. Incredibly well controlled
  • OIS works great, very impressive. It keeps what it promises
  • for video, corner sharpness is not so important if you shoot 16:9. OIS is impressive. Great manual focus ring and very minimal breathing
  • 16-80 has great OIS for low light
  • nice rounded bokeh, pretty impressive. Nice rounded. But quite some onion rights. So it’s a mixed bag. Good, but not the best they have seen on zooms
  • amazing close focus capabilities
  • AF is fast
  • F/4 is great choice length for such a lens
  • great for travels and video
  • overall a very convenient lens
