The Fujifilm XF 8-16mm F2.8 R LM WR features an optical construction of 20 elements in 13 groups, including 4 aspherical lens elements to control distortion and spherical aberration, and 6 ED lens elements (including 3 super ED elements) to control lateral chromatic aberration.
It features a floating lens element that adjusts according to the position of the zoom that Fujifilm says corrects field curvature that is typically found in ultra-wide angle lenses. The lens barrel is lightweight yet robust, sealed at 11 points, designed to be weather and dust-resistant and capable of operating in temperatures as low as -10C/+14F.
