XF 8–16MM F/2.8 R LM WR LENS
Classic wide-angle lens takes to the stars
The expression of craftsmanship in one’s photography often finds echoes in the tools of the trade. A classic ultra-wide-angle zoom lens from the Fujinon range, the XF 8–16mm f/2.8 R LM WR is precision-engineered in Japan for a working life in landscape, architecture, interiors, and other fields that call for edge-to-edge resolution and a f/2.8 maximum aperture. Boasting 20 lens elements in 13 groups, and the tasteful use of Nano-GI (Gradient Index) coating on the rear of the two front elements to reduce ghosting and flare, this is a responsive tool for professionals and stargazers alike. Priced at $3499.
