  1. Hi Dustin, you always have nice photos and fair, balanced reviews … I had a question … at 4:02 – is that Niagara Falls? Sounds like a spectacular holiday for a photographer… Thanks !

  2. Combined with the X-H1 this lens is spectacular. The IBIS and size of the X-H1 makes this combo amazing.

    The images from the X-H1/16-55 2.8 is spectacular with fantastic color fidelity. The balance is perfect and IBIS is remarkably effective.

    I think that’s probably easier to stabilize a smaller sensor with lesser resolution.

    As far as manual focus – did you know that you can choose between liner response and non linear response. With this setup you can get a near perfect experience. The linear option makes it work just like a fully manual lens.
    I don’t think this option is available on any other mirrorless.
    Have you tried this in your X-T3?

  3. Just discovered your channel while researching this lens and a big thumbs up on your content. Agree with others, your reviews are top notch. I do quite a bit of camping in Algonquin Park through Achray, your in a beautiful part of the world for sure.

  4. I'm a serious amateur photographer and seriously getting the xt3; would you recommend starting with the 18-55 kit lense or is it worth it to get the 16-55 as an initial lense?

  5. How is the IQ in comparison of the 18-55 2.8-4 kit? I'm sure it's better but I know the 18-55 is one of the best kit lenses ever and want to know if it is worth selling the 18-55 for this one? I want it mostly for landscapes so OIS and max aperture isn't really all that important to me as it's usually on a tripod. I just want to know if it's optically sharper and if so, is it worth investing in?

  6. The XT1 – XT3 cameras function better ergonomically with the vertical battery grip. In fact that grip is almost a requirement when shooting with the 16-55mm

  7. I am on a X-T2 with 18-55, a good all purpose lens. Asking Dustin if Fuji X System ( lens included) is now considered better or on par with the Nikons/Canons for Nature/Landscapes?? There are so many articles saying that DSLRs still have an edge wrt Nature/Landscapes as well as Sports/birding. Your thoughts. At the point of investing in glasses so this question.

  8. I do have Fuji's 16mm f1,4 and I adore that lens, for its IQ in particular. However, if I'm just walking around sometimes I feel stuck with it; something that 16-55mm would definitely cover. I do have the 18-135mm as a walk – around lens, but the IQ of it is not comparable by any means…

  9. I've always wondered why this range has been ignored for so long in a more professional lens. It reminds me of Canons standard 18-55mm kit which of course comes with every budget camera. An 18-55, or in this case 16-55, is SUCH a versatile walk-around range, especially when made with superior optics and an f/2.8 aperture -and if Canon did it, IS.

  10. Thank you for this Dustin. I move from canon to Fuji last year and when I do this change I remember saying that i will miss your reviews. You are one of the few that I trust to review a lens. In the canon arena I have the big and nice 70-200 mk2 the 35L II and 85L is all your recommendation. In Fuji I went to another root… i have bought the 16mm 1.4 the 56mm 1.2 and 80mm f2.8 macro. You have to see for yourself the magnificent lens that they are. If you can, start to review Fuji Primes, they are the best thing in Fuji line-up. But man. I miss that 35L mk2. Maybe the 33mm f1 next year will have the same magic!

  11. It's a nice lens I used one but the lack of IS is a major downer wouldn't be if they have IS in all their bodies but only one so far
    Bokeh isn't bad tele end but I found it a bit rough at the wide end with busy backgrounds. Nice bit pricey I think so I didn't buy it. I am wondering if the not quite sharp corners are due to corrections I looked at the 16mm mark and it in raw software no corrections shows quite a bit of vignetting and distortion so correcting that may account for some of the drop off

  12. Finally the Final review! I was waiting for this Dustin,I trust your opinion. I own 5 Samyang Primes for my XT3 and I wanted only 1 Zoom lens which is 2.8 for general purpose jobs . That's the one… Basically the only one 😂😂. Sad that Tamron or Sigma don't make lenses for the X system. I loved my 24-70 G2 and 70-200… Just sad

  13. Except for the last goof I actually thought a lot the intermediate movements were tracked better by the Fujifilm. I’ll have to check it again. What’s more annoying to me is the abrupt stepped auto exposure shifts.

    I wish the would build a focal reducer and some APO manual FF lenses maybe on a proprietary M42 like mount with electrical contacts just to really start eliminating the focal length/DOF issues that come with constantly having one angle of view with a different DOF then a FF lens.

  14. Great, super thorough and even-handed review as always. Always thrilled to see you get a hold of a lens I own or want to own. All winter long I've been climbing mountains in the Adirondacks with this lens so those snow-draped pine shots in your gallery are familiar. I've been happy with the results. As warm weather approaches, I will be more inclined to bring my tripod along for long-exposure shots of water. What tripod did you use with the 16-55?

    Coming from the A6000 + Sigma 16 + Sony 18-135, I've found there to be more "pop" in the images produced by the 16-55 than my old tandem. I always hear the mythical term "microcontrast" bandied about on the internet. Maybe this is it? Or is it something as mundane as the Velvia film simulation? Or does it have to do with the XT-3 being bereft of an AA filter?

  15. To avoid the confusion of comparison against full frame systems it is a 24-82mm f/4 equivalent (not f/2.8). Aperture is also subject to conversion for depth of field and overall light throughput to the whole sensor.

  16. Like u quickly realized, this lens tends to stay on your camera most of the time. It’s just too good for nearly every situation. When I travel, I bring this along with my 16 f1.4 and 35 f2. I’ve always been happy with the results I’ve achieved with it. Beautiful family and images BTW. Keep up the great work!

  17. First now let me watch this great video!!
    Probably the best photography reviewer on YouTube bar none. Very glad I brought this lens recently and your analysis helps me sleep at night. Very expensive lens. But this is really top Fuji glass and it performs.
