Whisper quiet speed
With the XF18-135mmF3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR, users get lightning-fast autofocus speeds as quick as 0.10 seconds*2 and smooth performance when combined with an X-Series camera body*3 that has phase detection AF, and nearly silent operation thanks to its linear motor technology, high-precision gyro sensors and lightweight focusing lens*4. This zoom lens has an advanced 5.0-stop image stabilization system that improves its ability to detect movement in the low-frequency band and uses an advanced algorithm to accurately sense blur from the detected signal. Additionally, its OIS performance is maximized in the slow-shutter speed range to support a lightly-equipped shooting style without the use of a tripod.
The XF18-135mmF3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR uses more than 20 sealing points for a durable, weather-resistant and dust-proof design that make it the perfect choice for photographers who want an uncompromising shooting experience in even the most challenging weather conditions. And when paired with the FUJIFILM X-T1, this is the perfect lens for a wide range of focal lengths and outdoor photographic opportunities.
