FUJINON XF 8-16mm F2.8 WR Filter Holder System

Fujinon XF 8-16mm F2.8 WR

If you have followed our recent XF 8-16 live blogging, you will not have missed Jonas Rask’s (beautiful) first look about it. In his review, Jonas writes about the XF 8-16mm F2.8:

“There’s no front filterthread. The lenshood is permanently fixed to the front of the lens like for example the Samyang 8mm fisheye. This means that for all you long-exposure landscape geeks, you will need to wait for your filtersystem manufacturer to provide a filter adapter. This is far from ideal, and to me it’s the single biggest flaw of this lens.

Supposedly not released until November, the wait for the 8-16mm f/2.8 to be released will give the filtersystem manufacturers some time to launch a filter holder system.”

Well, there are currently already working filter holder system options for the XF 8-16mm F2.8, as you can see from the screenshots above, taken from Mark Gilligan’s video shared at the Fujifilm’s global youtube channel here.

In this case it looks like a LEE Filters lens adapter ring filter holder, maybe the SW150 holder.

Fujinon Size Comparisons

Camerasize just added the Fujinon XF 8-16mm F2.8 to their database. You can now compare it to all other Fujinon (and non) lenses.

I decided to compare it with the Fujinon XF 10-24mm F4.

I remind you that you can’t remove the lens hood on the XF 8-16mm F2.8, this is why you see it with lens hood at camerasize. And as FR-reader Panther says in the comments, “You don’t gain any size advantage by removing the lens hood, since the front elemt sticks out far anyway. It also helps protect the front element, so you can put it on a table front side down and the front element doesn’t touch the table.”

FR-reader Yoav (thanks), has continued to make several size comparisons of the new upcoming XF 16-80mm F4 and XF 16mm F2.8. I will share them all down below.

Are the Fujinon XF 8-16mm F2.8 and XF 200mm F2 Too Expensive (POLL)? + Pre Orders at AmazonUS

New Fujinon Lenses

If AmazonUS is your prefered online retailer, then I inform you that they are taking pre-orders on the brand new Fujinon XF 8-16mm F2.8 here and Fujinon XF 200mm F2 here.

And regarding the new lenses, I am going through thousands of your comments in these past 3 days, and I can overall say:

  • most people are very satisfied with the new lenses on the roadmap
  • a good number of people think the XF 8-16 and XF 200 are too expensive

I don’t know if the XF 8-16 and XF 200 are really too expensive. What I know is that I am not one of those who thinks “it’s an APS-C lens, so it must be cheaper than equivalent FF lenses“.

And at the end of the day, the main deciding factor for the price of a lens is its image quality.

As they say, “you get what you pay for“.

And surely, the XF 8-16mm F2.8 and XF 200mm F2 price is definitely higher than most of us would have hoped, but if the image quality matches or even exceeds the one of its Canon and Nikon top of the line sibilings, then we will get what we pay for: the very best glass that makes no compromises in image quality, for a high, but at the end of the day fair, price.

We will have to wait for some lab tests and comprehensive real life reviews, to see if the image quality of the latest Fujinon lenses justifies its price. But I am somehow confident they will… and the first hands on experiences shared in our live blogging sound very promising :) .

Anyway… what do you think? Vote the poll below.

Is the Price of the XF 8-16mm F2.8 and XF 200mm F2 too Expensive?

Fujinon XF 16-80mm F4 and XF 16mm F2.8 Vs. other Fujinon Lenses – SIZE COMPARISON [UPDATED]

XF 16-80mm F4 Vs. XF 10-24mm F4

XF 18-55 Vs. XF 16-80 Vs. XF 18-135

XF 35mmF2 Vs. XF 16mmF2.8 Vs. XF 16mmF1.4

Fujinon Size Comparison

Earlier today we shared the first real life images of the XF 16-80mm F4 and the XF 16mm F2.8.

As you know, I am right now travelling, but I stopped my car on the highway to make a quick size comparison of the XF 16-80 and 16/2.8 with some other Fujinon lenses like the XF35mmF2, based on technical sketches that Fujifilm showed us here.

UPDATE: FR-reader Yoav made one, probably more accurate (thanks) based on filter size. Thanks!!! :)

The XF 16-80 is seriously tempting me as terrific travel lens. But having already the XF 18-135 (and I am very satisfied with it), I will probably save my money for the 33/1 that is coming in 2020.

Either way… I am afraid that the new lens roadmap Fujifilm announced yesterday will seriously hurt my bank account again.

Photography is a pretty expensive hobby… but a very satisfying one :)

FIRST IMAGES of FUJINON XF 16-80mm F4 and XF 16mm F2.8

New Roadmap Lenses Images

Yesterday Fujifilm announced a new Fujinon X mount lens roadmap, along with the XF 8-16mm F2.8 and XF 200mm F2. Of course we reported about immediately here on FujiRumors Live Blogging.

The new roadmap includes the following 3 new lenses:

  • Fujinon XF 16-80mm F4
  • Fujinon XF 33mm F1.0
  • Fujinon XF 16mm F2.8

Now the first images of the XF 16-80mm F4 and XF 16mm F2.8 mock ups start surfacing on the web, and you can see them down all below and have been shared at dc.watch and by pw-pix2 at dpreview.

In addition to that, you will see also more real life images of the XF 8-16mm F2.8 and XF 200mm F2.

As you can see, despite I am currently on holidays (driving to Matera now), I will not miss a single tidbit and break it all for you here on FujiRumors first. This and more, for the wonderful community around FR, who was even able to dictate to the Japan Fujifilm Headquarter the lenses we want next ;)

And I tell you… it’s by far not over and more great stuff is coming soon!

Fujifilm XF 8-16mm F2.8 and XF 200mm F2 Images and Price Leaked

New Fujinon Lenses

The price and the first images of the Fujinon XF 200mm F2 and XF 8-16mm F2.8 have been leaked by nokishita.

In British pounds the lenses will cost:

  • XF 200mm F2 with new 1.4x Teleconerter – £5,399. ($7,000)
  • XF 8-16mm F2.8 – £1,799 ($2,332)

And how much in US Dollar $$$?

In UK, the XF 8-16mm F2.8 will be £100 ($130) cheaper than the XF100-400, which is sold in USA for $1,899. So maybe we will get for about $1,799 in USA?

Regarding the XF200mm F2, our sources said months ago it will be sold for about $6,000 with 1.4x TC.

Also, as we told you back in March, the XF200mm F2 won’t be black as displayed by Fujifilm at every photography fair, but white/light silver.

ANNOUNCEMENT: Both lenses will be announced in July… just stay tuned on FujiRumors, and you will get the live blogging 0,001 seconds after the announcements.
