Fuji Weather Resistant XF18-135mm available
I’ve been trying out the Fuji XT-1 the last week, and Fujinon has just the XF18-135mm F3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR. WR as in weather resistant, just like the X-T1! This wide-angle to tele-zoom lens would be an ideal travel companion for this excellent camera. Just like the kit 18-55, it has advanced five stop image stabilisation built-in, and it’s the first Fujinon lens with more than 20 points of weather sealing. The combo weighs less than 1 kg and is compatible with the XT1 rapid AF speed of 0.10 seconds.
With the added benefit of image stabilisation, the XF18-135mm min F3.5 translates to at least an f/2.8. If the XT-1 kit lens is anything to go by, this will be another stunner from Fuji! Can’t wait to try. By the end of the week, I’m sure it will be available for pre-order everywhere, and it’s already on Adorama.
