FUJIFILM XF 10-24mm f/4 R OIS WR Lens
The XF10-24mmF4 R OIS WR is an ultra-wide zoom lens covering focal lengths from 10mm to 24mm (equivalent to 15mm – 36mm in the 35mm format). It utilises the same optical design as the original XF10-24mm OIS lens to provide similar image-resolving performance and a similar maximum aperture of F4.0 across the zoom lens’ entire focal length range.
Updated with an f-stop scale on its aperture ring, an Auto-position lock and a new weather-resistant structure, the XF10-24mmF4 R OIS WR is sure to be a top choice among landscape and nature photographers who need an ultra-wide angle lens to withstand the elements. Additionally, the internal structure has also been redesigned to make the focus and zoom rings slimmer, which reduces the lens’ overall weight by 25g (88 oz). Lastly, Optical Image Stabilisation has also been improved by 1 stop, bringing the total stabilisation effect to 3.5 stops.
Key features of XF10-24mmF4 R OIS WR include:
(1) A new weather-resistant design and some usability updates
- Updated aperture ring with f-stop scale and Auto-position lock
The aperture ring has been updated with an f-stop scale to allow photographers to visually check what aperture the lens is set to, eliminating the need to check through the camera’s EVF or LCD Display. The ring also features an Auto-position lock, similar to that on GF lenses, which prevents unexpected aperture ring movements, ultimately making use more efficient.
- Added weather-resistance
The XF10-24mmF4 R OIS WR is both dust and moisture resistant and is able to operate in temperatures as low as -10 degrees Celsius (14°F). It also weighs 25 g less than the previous model, despite the new weather-resistance feature.
- Improved optical image stabilisation
The XF10-24mmF4 R OIS WR uses a new, sophisticated gyro sensor that improves image stabilisation by 1.0 stop from the previous model to 3.5 stops. When used with a more current X Series camera, like the FUJIFILM X-T4, the lens and camera work together to achieve approximately 6.5 stops of 5-axis image stabilisation.
- A slimmer and more stylish design
The focus ring and the zoom ring have been reduced by 3mm and 2mm respectively compared to the previous model, creating a more compact and stylish design.
(2) Optical design that delivers advanced image resolving performance
The XF10-24mmF4 R OIS WR consists of 14 lens elements, including four aspherical elements and four extra-low dispersion elements in 10 groups. The aspherical elements reduce spherical aberration, field curvature and distortion, while the extra-low dispersion elements correct chromatic aberration to deliver enhanced edge-to-edge sharpness. Despite its
compact form, the lens can maintain a maximum aperture of F4.0 across its focal length range from the ultra-wide-angle 10mm to wide-angle 24mm (equivalent to 15mm – 36mm in the 35mm format), while still allowing users to keep a constant f-stop value at any focal length.
The front lens element is carefully coated to minimise ghosting in images, which tends to occur with the extremely concave elements normally found on an ultra-wide-angle zoom lens, and provides better image sharpness and clarity.
With a minimum working distance of just 24cm (9.5in), the XF-24mmF4 R OIS WR is also suitable for macro-style photography. Users can take advantage of the lens to close in on a subject, while also including the background in full via the ultra-wide-angle focal length to create powerful images.
(3) Fast and near-silent autofocus
The XF10-24mmF4 R OIS WR uses an internal focus system to achieve high-speed autofocusing capabilities. The use of lightweight focusing elements and a high-precision motor allows for fast and near-silent AF, even when paired with an X Series camera’s Face / Eye AF functions.
