Fujifilm 18-55mm f/2.8-4 | Image Quality

Most of the basic starter lenses in this category traditionally were not as sharp as studio tests show, & in real life they tkết thúc lớn bring down the overall image unique due to lớn poor image detail. Often, photographers had to lớn nâng cấp lớn a better lens with higher chất lượng. At least I did!

In contrast, theFujifilm XF 18-55milimet f/2.8-4 R LM OIS showed amazing details with excellent sharpness. I was shocked khổng lồ see that kind of quality in this ‘lower class’ lens category, where it really doesn’t belong.

Whenever there is a good giảm giá lớn be had, my Gear Acquisition Syndrome tends to relapse. Even after many px peeping attempts on the images produced by this lens, I still don’t see any reason lớn nâng cấp. If I do nâng cấp, it will most likely be to lớn a Fujifilm XF 16-55milimet f/2.8 R LM WR, which is weather-sealed và has slightly better quality, but is more than twice as expensive sầu.

Furthermore, the Fujifilm XF 16-55milimet f/2.8 R LM WR weighs more than similar lenses. If you use the lens on smaller cameras like the Fujifilm X-Ttrăng tròn or X-E4, this lens can put the whole system off balance by weighing down the front.

Of course, by trading in my Fujifilm XF 18-55milimet f/2.8-4 R LM OIS for the 16-55 f/2.8, I would be losing optical image stabilization, which is very handy during low-light situations. However, I will gain one more stop, as Fujifilm XF 16-55mm f/2.8 R LM WR is a fixed-aperture lens with f/2.8 throughout the zoom range.

Still, in terms of picture unique, it’s not in my opinion worth it lớn splurge on the Fujifilm XF 16-55milimet f/2.8 R LM WR; rather, you should save sầu that money for one of Fujifilm’s amazing prime lenses.

For a serious professional wedding or event photographer deciding between the Fujifilm XF 18-55milimet f/2.8-4 R LM OIS or the Fujifilm XF 16-55milimet f/2.8 R LM WR, I would highly recommover the latter. It’s of better quality, and the one extra stop can be crucial for time-pressured shoots.

In the budget lens category, Fujifilm has its well-priced Fujinon XC 16-50milimet F3.5-5.6 OIS, which is more suitable to lớn be called a kit lens. The picture chất lượng is predictably lower.

Fujifilm 18-55mm f/2.8-4 | Aperture

Some Fujifilm lenses have a manual control for aperture, which means aperture cannot be controlled in-camera; instead, there is a dedicated aperture ring on the lens which can be set by rotating the ring between f/2.8 & f/22.

Compared lớn traditional lenses in this focal length range, which are most often f/3.5-5.6, Fujifilm has at least one stop advantage at the long end & almost 2/3 advantage at the short kết thúc. This feature is very handy during low-light shooting, và can be a deciding factor for someone looking to buy a new lens in this category over the lenses from other brands with new bodies.


Fujifilm 18-55mm f/2.8-4 | Focus Speed

The lens has adequate focus tốc độ, giving me plenty of keepers from my shoots but occasionally causing some issues during focusing under low light. With newer camera models like the Fujifilm X-T3 with improved focusing mechanisms, the lens should persize well. I often phối my focus lớn just the centre point, improving the proportion of photos that are properly focused.
