Why you’ll love the XF18-135mm lens
- High magnification, weather resistant, zoom lens
- World’s most advanced 5.0-stop stabilisation technology
- Wide shooting range of 27mm wide-angle to 206mm telephoto equivalent
- Light-weight and compact design for excellent portability
- Fast autofocus & silent operation
Wide shooting range
The new XF18-135mm lens is suited to a variety of scene types and subject matters. These include wide-angle shooting*1, often used for landscapes and architecture with an excellent sense of perspective (27mm equivalent); a normal angle of view that naturally captures the image as it is (35mm, 40mm, 50mm equivalent); and telephoto, which allows you to zoom right in to capture portraits and sports scenes (85mm, 135mm, 200mm equivalent) with its 7.5x zoom.
*1 35mm format equivalent
The XF18-135mm F3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR uses an inner focusing mechanism*3 for rapid autofocus speeds (max. 0.1sec.)*2. This was engineered by making the focus lens lighter and installing a linear motor. When this lens is combined with an X-series camera body*4 which is compatible with phase detection AF, smooth photography is offered with faster AF.
*2 Complies with CIPA guidelines, internal measurement, during high performance mode, according to Fujifilm as of June 2014
*3 Method that moves relatively smaller lenses in the middle or at the end without moving the front which is composed of relatively larger lenses
*4 As of June 2014, “FUJIFILM X-T1” and “FUJIFILM X-E2”
World’s most advanced 5.0-stop image stabilisation function
In order to achieve the world’s most advanced 5.0-stop image stabilisation performance, the ability to detect movement in the low-frequency band was improved, and an algorithm to accurately sense blur from the detected signal was developed. Correction performance was doubled in the lowspeed shutter range. This helps to support a lightly-equipped shooting style without the use of a tripod.
The newly adopted high-precision gyro sensor is installed with quartz oscillators which detect movement from high frequency to low frequency bandwidths.
Dust-proof, weather resistant structure
A dust-proof, weatherproof structure with sealing applied to 20 different areas of the lens barrel is resistant to typical atmospheric changes that occur in a natural environment, such as sudden rain, dust, and splashes of water.
Designed to be paired with the Fujifilm X-T1 and its dedicated vertical grip VG-XT1 which also have dust-proof and weather resistant bodies.
