The Fujinon XF 8-16mmF2.8 itself will ship at the end of November.
The Fujinon XF 8-16mmF2.8 will ship at the end of November, and we have a few more reviews, unboxing and samples on the web.
The most comprehensive review has been shared by lenstip. Overall they think the lens price of $2,000 is not justified.
“After the test I find the number of small slip-ups of this lens a bit too high so, I suppose, only lowering of price can help. Of course it doesn’t change the fact the Fujinon remains a very well-done and optically good lens.”
Here are their Pros and Cons:
New Fujinon Lenses
The Fujinon XF200mmF2 will be the next len to ship, followed by the Fujinon XF8-16mmF2.8 one month later.
From my testings at Photokina, I can just say that the XF200mmF2 will be legendary lens for Fujifilm. But don’t believe me, and check out the first looks below ;).

Fujinon XF8-16mm F2.8 & XF200mm F2
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).
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.

New Fujinon XF (Roadmap) Lenses
I thought we take a little break from all those fantastic Fujifilm X-T3 reviews, and get back to the core of every system: lenses!
For 2019/2020, Fujifilm has recently announced a new roadmap which include 3 lenses: XF16-80mmF4 and XF16mmF2.8 for 2019 and XF33mmF1.0 for 2020 (don’t forget to vote our XF 33/1 features request poll).
There is still not much about this lenses online, but down below is what he have so far.
