  3. Capability to save up to 9,999 pictures in each folder.
    Until now, the number of pictures that can be saved in a folder on an SD card was limited to 999. This update will raise the limit by ten times to 9,999 pictures.

DPReview

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

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.
