Lenses: New & Old

CURRENT FUJI ROADMAP: Unlike lots of their competitors, Fuji has been really good about telling us when new lenses are coming down the road. Fuji calls it their “Roadmap.” You can access the current Roadmap HERE

TEST FUJI LENSES: This is a really cool site. You can easily test the range of lenses and see how different lenses and aperture values affect the image. It’s quite an informative area. Click HERE for the site.

Fujinon-XF16_55mm-F2.816-55 f2.8 R LM WR I have been shooting with the new 16-55 2.8 now for a few weeks and am completely satisfied with this lens. This is the new version of the 18-55 2.8-4.0 “kit” lens (maybe the sharpest kit lens ever!). Why did I need this lens? A) It’s sharper B) It’s a 2.8. C) I know it’s going to hold up to the beating it’ll get in Iceland and Norway in the winter.

Will I sell the 18-55 2.8-4.0?  Definitely no. It’s a great walk-around every day lens. It’s lighter and is just fine for everyday use.

But… if you are looking for ultra-sharp, weather resistant make the investment.
