Fujinon Lenses Buying Guides, Fujinon XF100-400 vs Sony GM 100-400, Fujinon XF16-80mm f/4 reviews and Much More

The big Fujinon XF lens deals are ending this weekend.

Whatever is on your possible “to buy” list, in order to help you to decide if to grab it or not, I decided to share a big Fujinon lenses review roundup.

The roundup includes newest lenses like the XF16-80mm f/4, but keep in mind they were all made before the recent XF16-80 firmware update, which fixes several issues.

Fujinon XF16-80mm f/4 Finally in Stock

The Fujinon XF16-80mm f/4 is shipping and in stock at BHphoto here.

Fujifilm Manager Toshihisa Iida said at the recent Fujifilm X Summit, that pre-orders are very high for the Fujinon XF16-80mm f/4 and that the factory is working full power to try to deliver as fast as possible.

On the other hand, the delay might have been also caused by Fujifilm’s need to address some firmware updates first, which now have been released here, and they have sorted out some issues.

If you want to save some bucks on the lens, it’s sold also in combination with the X-T3 at BHphoto, Adorama, AmazonUS and Focuscamera.

The regular bundle price for X-T3 with 16-80 would be of $2,000, but until November 17 you can get it for $1,800.

Fujifilm X-T3 with XF16-80mm f/4 Kit for Sale – Save $500 until Nov. 17

Back in early September, we told you the Fujinon XF 16-80mm f/4 will be sold as kit lens with X-T3 towards the end of the year.

Well, turns out it’s yet another of our spot on accurate rumors :).

In fact, you can now find the X-T3 with XF16-80 kit all over the world, and of course also on BHphoto, Adorama, AmazonUS and Focuscamera. Shipping will start November 25.

The regular price for the whole bundle is of $2,000, which means $300 less than if purchased separately ($1500 for X-T3 and $800 for 16-80)

Add to this that the X-T3 is now $200 off until Nov.17, this means you are now going to save $500 compared to if purchased separately after Nov. 17.

Fujinon XF 16-80mm f/4: Lots of Distortion, Exposure Inconsistency and Yet a Recommended Lens

Fujinon XF 16-80mm f/4

As a free and independent space, here on FujiRumors we report just everything, the good and the not so good, not matter if Fujifilm likes it or not, as my only boss are FR-readers, and I owe you the best service I can deliver.

Hence, today, in this Fujinon XF 16-80mm f/4 roundup I chose to highlight some aspects of the lens, that are not really that good.

And yet, despite not being a perfect lens, those who review the Fujinon XF 16-80mm f/4 still end up recommending it, as a great all rounder lens.

At the end, it’s all about finding the right balance, keeping in mind what’s the target group of a certain lens. And I guess in order ot keep size, weight and price down, Fujifilm had to rely more on digital correction in the case of this lens.

Fujinon XF 16-80mmF4 Compared to XF14mmF2.8, XF35mmF1.4, XF56mmF1.2 and XF90mmF2

Fujifilm Top Manager Toshihisa Iida said at the recent Fujifilm X Summit, that pre-orders for the Fujinon XF16-80mm f/4 are very high, and the factory is working full power to try to match the demand as quickly as possible.

The result: the Fujinon XF16-80mm F4 is still mostly marked as back-ordered.

So, while Fujifilm is trying to figure out how to ship gear they announced back in July, here on FujiRumors we try to kill the waiting time with some dedicated XF16-80 roundups.
