Technical Details

Product Description

The black XC 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OIS Lens from Fujifilm is a zoom lens with a 35mm equivalent focal length of 24-76mm, covering wide-angle to portrait-length perspectives. It is designed specifically for the Fujifilm X-series of mirrorless cameras with APS-C sensors. The lens provides an 83.2-31.7° angle of view and an aperture range of range of f/3.5-22. Manual aperture adjustment is set in-camera as there is no aperture ring on the lens. A high-precision stepping motor provides fast, accurate and smooth autofocus and optical image stabilization (O.I.S.) compensates for camera shake to create blur-free images, even in low light and when shooting at telephoto lengths. O.I.S. even reduces the effects of camera movement when shooting video. Three aspherical lens elements and one extra-low dispersion element minimize chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range and Super EBC (Electron Beam Coating) reduces ghosting and flares to help produce clear, high-contrast images.

This "XC" lens is the new kit lens that comes with both the Fuji X-A1 and X-M1 cameras. As soon as you hear the phrase "kit lens," the first thing that crosses your mind is a cheap, throwaway lens that is intended only as a stopgap measure until you invest in "real" lenses.

That may be true for many kit lenses on the market today, but my own experience with this lens (which I have been using with the Fuji X-A1 camera) demonstrates that this is one of the best lenses on the market today in terms of optical quality / cost ratio. If that seems like an exaggeration, you can do some online searching and read other reviews here on Amazon and easily find that this is also the conclusion of many reviewers, including professional photographers with many years of experience with professional camera brands.

This lens is part of Fuji's X-mount system. The "XC" line of lenses are cost-reduced lenses of Fuji's highly regarded "XF" lens line (both are X-mount). It is true that the "XF" lenses, which cost approximately twice that of their "XC" equivalent, are some of the most highly regarded lenses available today, but my own experience shooting with this "XC" variant is extremely positive. So much so, that, if you purchase, say the Fuji X-A1 camera with this kit lens, it may be all you will ever want in a basic camera, assuming you can live with the 3x zoom range.

What makes this lens so nice? It is generally sharp across the entire zoom range, with some softness at the outer field of view. Distortion control is handled through the Fuji camera post processing, and is likely not to even be experienced in most shooting situations.

This is a good kit lens. It's pretty well built. The dials turn smoothly, though the focus-by-wire manual focus feels a little bit disconnected. The image stabilization is good for maybe 3 stops, which is fine. Maybe my copy is not as good as those from other reviewers because I don't see this as anything special. I've shot it on both an X-M1 and a X-E1 against the 18-55. There's no contest. The 18-55 is sharper at all focal lengths and has better color. It also has a manual focus that feels tight. On the plus side I do like the 24mm equivalent focal length on this lens compared to the 28 on the XF Fuji kit lens. That is a focal range where every little bit counts. Compared to most kit lenses the 16-50 is still better than average but not quite as good as some, say, the Panasonic lens that came with the G6. I must disagree with some other reviews. I don't find this superb, simply good. I suppose that if you only have a Canon Rebel kit lens to compare to it might seem better than it is.

When I originally got the X-M1 I was not overwhelmed. I wondered what all the fuss was about Fuji cameras. It turns out that it wasn't the camera that didn't impress me. It was the lens. During Fujifilm's recent lens sale I got the 27mm f/2.8. Now I am impressed. The 27 is much sharper, has better corner sharpness, focuses faster and has a more neutral color. The 16-50 renders scenes a bit warmer than I prefer. Then I got the 60mm macro, which is sharper still. When I got an X-E1 and the higher end kit, I realized that the 16-50 is not Fuji's finest kit lens. OTH, this lens is a lot less expensive than the 18-55 and a lot lighter.

I just received this lens today, so I will revise this review when I can. I am using this lens with a Fujifilm X-E1.

I owned the Fujifilm XF 14mm briefly, so that is all I have to compare this XC lens to. The XF 14mm lens is wider, sharper, and all metal. On the downside, the 14mm is heavier, limited to one focal length, and at least 3x the cost at $899. Worst of all, the 14mm has an aperture ring that is so loose that, in my opinion, it becomes a negative rather than a positive.

I actually prefer the absence of an aperture ring on the XC 16-50. The 14mm was difficult to hold without moving the aperture accidentally. And I think the XC-16-50 has a very clean, no-nonsense look about it without the aperture ring. (you just use your right thumb to dial in whatever aperture you want; it works fine. Set the shutter dial to "A" and it goes into aperture priority mode. Shutter priority is activated by using the thumb dial to set the aperture all the way past f22... It will then begin automatically selecting aperture based on whatever shutter speed your select. Leaving the aperture in its auto position, and simultaneously setting the shutter speed dial to "A" puts the camera in Program mode, i.e. automatic mode.)

I don't find the XC 16-50 to be cheap looking or feeling at all. Yes, it is plastic except for the glass, but it still has a nice heft to it that I find actually balances better with the X-E1 than the 14mm did. It is plastic, but it looks and feels nice, and from any distance it is difficult to tell whether it is metal or plastic. The plastic mount is not something I am enthusiastic about, but it seems to work fine.

I know the general consensus is that the XF 18-55 is a better lens, but 18mm (27mm equivalent)is not wide enough for me.
