Expanded Fujifilm XF 18mm F1.4 R LM WR Lens Key Features:

Impeccable Optical Structure

The XF 18mmF1.4 R LM WR Lens can produce some truly stunning images that are rich in clarity and detail. This is thanks to the complex and advanced optical structure that is comprised of 15 high-quality glass elements, arranged into 9 groups. Amongst these elements are three aspherical lenses and one ED (Extra Dispersion) lens element. The use of these specialised lenses helps to capture the finest detailed images with significantly reduced chromatic and comatic aberrations. In addition, this lens features a six-strong focusing group of lens elements that have been designed to move in unison resulting in reduced aberration fluctuations usually caused by focusing. This, of course, means that the lens can deliver consistent sharpness throughout the entire focusing range.

Autofocus Performance

As mentioned, the optical structure features a focusing group that moves in unison to help maintain sharpness. This lens is also equipped with an internal autofocus system that is driven by a strong and reliable linear motor, and this motor works tirelessly to provide consistently fast, precise and near-silent AF performance. Depending on whether you’re focusing from its minimum object distance of 20cm to infinity, this lens can acquire focus as fast as 0.04 - 0.25 seconds. That’s lightning fast! But for those scenes where you need the subtleties of manual focus control, this lens features a specially engineered precision manual focus ring that will accurately respond even to the lightest touch.

Never Mind the Weather

With such a wide angle of view, this lens is set to be a winner with any landscape, travel or street photographer. This lens has been designed to be compact, lightweight and portable, measuring just 7.56cm in length and weighing just 370g, it’ll easily fit in your kit bag or sit on your camera all day long without causing weight/size issues. Something that was missed on this lens’s counterpart, the Fujifilm XF 18mm f2 R Lens, was weather resistance. This XF 18mm F1.4 R LM WR features strong build quality with weather-resistant seals at eight different locations along the barrel of the lens. This offers resistance to moisture and dust and allows full functionality at temperatures as low as -10°C (14°F). This will be particularly useful to landscape photographers who often need to brave the elements to capture the most dramatic of images.

FAQs:

What’s the difference between this lens and Fujifilm XF 18mm f2 R Lens?

It’s all about the optical structure. This lens has more lens elements and a wider aperture. Together, these components make for higher resolution stills that see much higher image quality and overall performance. This lens is also weather-proof which allows you to continue shooting in adverse conditions.

Does this lens have an aperture lock like other Fuji lenses?

The XF18mmF1.4 features an A (Auto) Position Lock which, like other Fujifilm lenses, is used to lock the aperture ring into the A position, preventing accidental movement.

Does this come with a lens hood?

This does not come packaged with a lens hood. The LH-XF18 Lens Hood for XF18mmF1.4 R LM WR is sold separately.

What is this lens suitable for?

Having a super-wide-angle field of view allows for all kinds of photographic applications. Often you’ll see landscape photographers utilising this wide-angle view to capture vast mountainous scenes in front of them. Equally, combining the wide range with the maximum f1.4 aperture lends itself to dramatic astrophotography. The wide aperture allows as much light as possible to be captured through that 18mm focal range.
