Fujifilm’s XF 16-55mm F2.8 R LM WR fulfills the role of standard zoom in the X-series extremely well, but with no optical image stabilisation it performs at its best on models that feature in-body image stabilisation like the X-T4. Equivalent to 24-84mm, it extends further at the long end than a 24-70mm standard zoom and its twin linear focusing motor ensures rapid focusing with no pesky operational sounds. The way it retains such high levels of sharpness through its aperture and focal length range is remarkably impressive, but diffraction does soften fine detail at f/16 and beyond. Its extensive weather sealing, fast aperture and versatile zoom range make it a great choice for countless shooting situations.
Fujifilm doesn’t offer many premium telephoto zooms for their X-mount cameras, but those they do are stunning and this is one example. The equivalent zoom range of 75-210mm and fast maximum aperture make it well suited to a wide range of applications and with quick, reliable focusing, effective optical image stabilisation and stunning image quality, it’s a firm favourite of many. Despite being smaller and lighter than comparable 70-200mm f/2.8 zooms for full-frame cameras it’s no less impressive. The level of sharpness it returns across the zoom range, combined with the way it controls chromatic aberrations is outstanding. Fujifilm set the bar of its telephoto zoom lineup extremely high with this lens.
The FUJINON XF 55-200mm F3.5-4.8 R LM OIS is built with an optical design that offers a large maximum aperture and a linear motor that delivers high-speed AF performance, while featuring the image stabilization function that allows the use of shutter speeds 4.5 stops slower.
XF70-300mmF4-5.6 R LM OIS WR is a compact and portable telephoto zoom that provides image-makers with a broad range of focal lengths in a lightweight design, with a fast linear motor for autofocus, up to 5.5-stops of optical image stabilisation and weather-resistance.
A must-have for Fujifilm users who’d like a zoom that’s longer than the fabulous XF 50-140mm f2.8 WR OIS, this powerful telephoto lens spans an equivalent focal range of 150-600mm and is just the ticket for shooting faraway action, sport or wildlife. It’s heavy at 1375g, but focuses responsively and its effective optical image stabilisation provides up to 5.5 stops of correction when paired with X-series cameras that feature in-body stabilisation such as the X-T4 and X-S10. With a fluid zoom action, extensive weather seals and impressive sharpness across its zoom and aperture range, it’s hard to fault. It’s compatible with Fujifilm’s weather-resistant 1.4x and 2x teleconverters too.
