Fuji 16-80. The XF16-80mm f4 lens first appeared more than a year ago and finally was formally announced in July 2019. The XF 16-80mm is about average size for a standard zoom with its coverage range.
The Pre-release chatter has been mixed so Im stalling for a few days to see what other early adopters assessment is. It measures 35 by 31 inches HD and weighs 155 ounces. The Fuji 16-55mm f28 Fujifilms flagship zoom has an equivalent focal length of 24mm to 84mm.
The 16-80XF employs Fujis hybrid approach to aperture where one has the option of utilizing a ring with one-third stop detents or putting the ring into A automatic where either the camera controls aperture or you control it via the camera.
Fuji claim a 6-stop advantage with the 16-80mm OIS I would take that with a pinch of salt but if say its around three stops in practice you are still 2 stops better off compared to the 16-80mm with both lenses wide open. The lens features 6 stops of Image Stabilization the most of. Sample images focal length comparison and comparing the XF 16-80mm to the XF 18-55mm f28-4 and XF 16-55mm f28. The Pre-release chatter has been mixed so Im stalling for a few days to see what other early adopters assessment is.
