From the Manufacturer
The high-magnification zoom lens XF18-135mmF3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR covers a wide range of shooting scenes, from wide angles equivalent to 27mm* to telephoto 206mm* equivalent, has the world's most advanced 5.0-stop image stabilization effect** and has weather resistant structure with sealing applied to more than 20 areas.
In order to realize high descriptive performance with sharpness and rich contrast from wide angle to telephoto, high-performance glass materials including 4 aspherical glass lenses and 2 ED glass lenses are used. Multi-layer coating HT-EBC, which has high permeability (99.8%) and low reflectance (0.2%), is applied to the entire lens to effectively reduce lens flare and ghosting, which often occur in backlight conditions. Utilizing the wide zoom range of the lens, there is more freedom in composition and selecting angles.
Fast autofocus (max. 0.10 sec.)**, silent operation
The XF18-135mmF3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR utilizes an inner focus mechanism*** for rapid autofocusing speeds. This was enabled by making the focus lens lighter and installing a linear motor. By combining this lens with a X-series camera body which is compatible with phase detection AF, smooth photography is offered with faster AF.
Linear motor technology which directly drives the focus lens creates low noise for silent operation when shooting movies.
- *** Method that moves relatively smaller lenses in the middle or at the end without moving the front which is composed of relatively larger lenses
World's most advanced 5.0-stop image stabilization function
In order to realize the world's most advanced 5.0-stop image stabilization performance, performance 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 improved by 2 times in the low-speed 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 bandwidth.
Weather resistant structure
A weather resistant structure with applied sealing on 20 areas on the lens barrel is tough against various changes that occur in a natural environment, such as sudden rain, dust, and splashes of water.
Users can focus more on shooting by using the lens together with the premium mirrorless camera Fujifilm X-T1, which has a weather resistant structure, as well as with the dedicated vertical grip "VG-XT1".
In order to improve the feel when adjusting zoom, a ventilator is placed in the interior of the bottom of the lens barrel. The structure effectively prevents dust particles and moisture from getting into the lens to allow for smooth operation.
Light-weight and compact design for excellent mobility
A wide shooting range, image stabilization function, and a weather resistant structure are realized in a size that weighs only 490g. When combined with the Fujifilm X-T1, a light weight of just 930g will expand the area of activities of the photographer to help capture more photo opportunities.
4 "aspherical lenses" have been adopted, each of which deliver the performance of multiple general spherical lenses together, are used to realize extremely short optical length. With an easily maneuverable size and good holding balance with the total lens length, a comfortable shooting style is promised.

The FOCAL RANGE is quite broad, and certainly useful. Sure, it could be wider and longer, but it’s still a decent wide-angle (27mm) and a decent telephoto (206mm). I’d personally prefer more degrees at the wide end at the expense of the long though (as the 16-55 will be). A 16-120mm (24-180) with at least a constant f/4 would be more in line with my wishes.
Yeah, it is kinda SLOW. And I am known for using and loving fast primes (25 years as a photojournalist), so when I first saw the specs on this, I was not even interested. As I shoot a D4 on my day-job, my X-T1 is more of my personal (fun/art) camera. But it is highly capable for pro work, and for some things, I’d prefer it.
The useful max f/stops break down like this (or there-abouts) :
What the lens lacks in aperture speed, the vibration reduction system (OIS) makes up for. And the OIS in this lens is really amazing, I really think the most useful I have used. Better than my Nikkor 70-200 f/2.8.
For most of my pro work, VR or OIS is honestly not very useful to me. I’m more worried about subject movement vs. my hand-holding ability, which is why I prefer (need) very fast glass. I regularly handhold a 300mm 2.8 and have never used a 70-200 2.8 with a monopod—I just use a higher ISO and shoot wide open. But the ability of this lens to keep an image tack sharp at 4-5 stops slower than normal is amazing. And the system is quiet, unobtrusive, and doesn’t shake around. It is very useful on a compact all-in-one lens such as this, which would (in my use) be more for scenics, still life, nature, portrait snapshots---Travel, vacation. I don’t love variable-aperture lenses for my pro work either, but as a travel zoom, its fine. This lens is also highly useful for basic video work (home movies) with the broad focal range and very effective vibration reduction.
The SHARPNESS is actually quite good for this 7.5X focal range. Bit soft in corners wide-open, especially at 18mm (I’d almost wish it was less sharp in corners at the long end vs the wide end) but it is still very useful. In fact, it seems resolving enough at EVERY focal length, which is really pretty impressive. Don’t expect it to match your primes, but I haven’t met any lens that does. There are just too many variables to engineer into making this broad a focal range perfect. I’d certainly say it’s the sharpest all-in-one lens I’ve had though. The multiple ED/Aspherical elements probably help out there.
CONTRAST is very good all the way through, which adds to the impression of sharpness. Flare seems well controlled and Starbursts look decent too.
Can a slow lens like this even have BOKEH? Well, that is probably what is impressing me most with this lens. WIth careful study of background/highlights, it CAN!
It’s fairly smooth and creamy for the slow aperture openings it has. Guess the aperture openings stay fairly circular throughout the range and help with OOF highlights for a fairly decent bokeh for a slow lens.
The minimum focus distance (MFD) is another highlight for me. It makes this lens way more useful as an all-in-one when you are able to get in close on a flower and just about fill the frame. No, its certainly not a 1:1 macro, but its more useful than most primes with generally more-limited MFD. In real-world shooting it seems to be around 10” in front of front element (filter to subject). This 10 inches or so is comparable across the focal range as well, so you can shoot around the same distances from wide angle (27mm) to telephoto (206mm). This is very useful and the close-focusing is helpful for bokeh in macro-ish shots.
One of the major selling points is the WATER RESISTANCE, and that was certainly of interest to me. It’s nice to not have to worry about ruining your lens/camera when you get caught in a shower or want to take a hike and still get nice nature shots in any condition (which is sometimes more productive in cloudy light in drizzle).
Well, if you are looking for an exact test on the effectiveness of the water-resistance, I am not gonna be the guinea pig just for tests-sake!! Winking smile
As I use the lens more, I will try to add some more observations though. I think the dust-resistance is nearly as important, although not nearly as touted about. Keeping dust particles from blowing around and through the back of the lens onto the fine sensor is very beneficial.
But being able to use a one-lens system and not HAVE to change lenses in the field is very important for the effectiveness of the weather-resistance features.
I can certainly see this lens as being great for shooting fall scenics and waterfalls in particular (as you generally want a slow shutter and don’t need a fast lens)—the range will be great.
It is fairly LIGHT in weight too, making it even better for travel. Although light, the BUILD QUALITY still seems high. The ZOOM ring is very smooth mechanically, and it does not creep around either. I’d prefer a zoom that was totally internal, but probably hard to do with this wide a focal range. My copy seems to be a little tight at just the last few millimeters of zoom, say 128-135mm—but that may loosen with use.
The included hood somehow seems a just bit small for the lens girth to me, and the plastic is slightly a lighter shade (grey vs deeper black of lens) which appears a bit mis-matched to me, but not a big deal. Unfortunately, the hood does not have a great “click” stop once in place either, making it a bit loose and prone to falling off.
The AUTOFOCUS is internal, so you can easily use SFX filters (esp. polarizers) easily. The AF system is FAST and hits the mark well! I’d say its better than my 56mm honestly, with less hunting. It is also extremely QUIET and SMOOTH. Very pleased with the focus.
In conclusion, This is a very USEFUL lens, even though it is slow. If it were faster with an even broader focal range, it would also be very heavy, very large, with a huge front element (that needed 77mm or larger filters). As such, it suits the small mirrorless bodies (such as the X-T1) perfectly as a take-anywhere but highly-capable camera system.
While it is not tack sharp at the edges, the center is very sharp. While it isn't particularly fast, I just bumped up the iso to keep the shutter speeds up to speed. While it is not smooth as silk in changing the focal lengths, it is stiff enough to avoid any creep. There is nothing particularly exceptional about the lens, but there is a great deal that is very good.
Out of the 200 or so pics I took over the weekend, there were none that left me disappointed. It produced pleasing colors and contrast and overall satisfying images. The range from 18mm - 135mm just works. Maybe I was too cautious with my expectations about the lens, but I am confident with it after having used in for a couple of days. I have several fast Fuji primes that would certainly offer more pleasing pics at the pixel peeping level, and when I absolutely need fast shutter at wide open. But as a general, all purpose, keep on the camera lens, this one exceeded my expectations.
For what its worth, I have had other wide to tele, all purpose lenses on other sensor size cameras, but none left me as pleased with the execution of that concept as this Fuji does. It was very satisfying to use and was pleased with the images that it produced. The in lens stabilization never let me down either.
I won't knock on the lens for this, but wanted to let future buyers know.
Lens hood took me a few tries to learn how to install
100-135 isn't as smooth as the rest of the range
Autofocus isn't the best in lower light situations
Obviously not a good low light lens
Lens cap is easily knocked off, I aleady had to buy a new one
I wish the zoom threads felt like the focus thread, I don't like the rubber texture it collects dust
The aperture ring isn't marked and I still turn it the wrong way sometimes
I know it seems like i said a lot of negatives, but I really love this lens and the quality of pictures it takes. It's extremely versatile and I've taken 1 second pictures handheld.
Hopefully I'll try out one of fujis primes next, but this was my first fuji lens coming from Nikon
