Fujinon XF8-16mmF2.8 vs XF16mmF1.4 and XF200mmmF2 on Fujifilm X-T3

Fujinon XF8-16mm F2.8 & XF200mm F2

During my stay at photokina 2018, I had the priviledge to test out the Fujinon XF 8-16mmF2.8 as well as the XF 200mmF2.

I could not really put those lenses through its paces, since I could only test them out at Fuji’s touch & try corner, but even during my short flirt with them, they didn’t fail to impress me (I used them both on the Fujifilm X-T3).

Yes, the XF 8-16mmF2.8 and XF 200mmF2 are not a bargain, but as they say, “you get what you pay for“. Enough said ;) .

Reviews about the XF 8-16 and XF 200 are not easy to find on the web and we will have to wait for them to be available in October/November, to see more of them.

We did share a major roundup a few weeks ago here, and here are some tidbits, including a quick comparison between the Fujinon XF8-16mmF2.8 and XF16mmF1.4, which is arguably one of the top three primes in Fujifim’s entire lens lineup.

FujiRumors @ Photokina 2018

I am not that kind of guy, who breaks into a place bypassing security checks…

I broke into photokina bypassing security checks 1 day ahead of the official opening, because I could not wait to deliver you the first images side by side of the XF33mmF1.0, XF16-80mmF4 and XF16mmF2.9 and first hands on video of the Fujifilm GFX 50R.

But let’s talk about it later and start with the Fujifilm managers.

Fujinon Roadmap Lenses

For the second time today (first time here), I had to find a way through the security check and get into the Photokina halls. Stealthy like a ninja, I made it again.

This time I was armed with my wonderful Fujifilm X-E3 and I snapped some pictures of the upcoming Fujinon lenses.

I apologize for the quality, since I tried to make my way through a couple of Fujifilm managers and an angry lady, who told me “can I help you” in a tone that clearly ment “p*** off from here“.

So time was limited, the conditions difficult, I could not touch the lenses, but I made it… somehow.

And when nobody was watching, I quickly grabbed a Fujifilm GFX 50R and made a super quick hands on video.

Back to the lenses:

  • XF33mmF1.0: Yes, it’s rather big, especially compared to the Mitakon 35mm F0.95 (manual focus only). I guess Fujifilm wants to make this the ultimate lens in terms of image quality, and still offer a fast AF motor. Filter size 77
  • XF16mmF2.8: Very small. Fits perfect in the Fujicron lineup with the XF23mmF2, XF35mmF2 and XF50mmF2. Filter size 49
  • XF16-80mmF4: This lens, my friends, will fall into the hands of many fellow X-shooters for travels. Filter size 72

In 2018 we will get the XF200mmF2 in October and the XF8-16mmF2.8 in November.

There is still not much about this lenses online, but down below is what he have so far.
