In this excellent video review, the lens is explored in depth, showcasing the kind of performance and image quality it delivers in real-world scenarios.

Coming to you from Christopher Frost, this great video review takes a look at the Fujifilm XF 8mm f/3.5 R WR lens. Offering a full frame equivalent focal length of 12mm, the XF 8mm f/3.5 is especially wide, making it an attractive option for landscape and architectural photographers at a price that will not break the bank ($799). In addition to that headline focal length, it comes with a nice range of features, including:

  • Three aspherical and two extra-low dispersion elements for reduced distortion and improved sharpness
  • Designed specifically for high-resolution 40-megapixel X-Trans sensors
  • Quick autofocus as fast as 0.02 seconds
  • Small size at just over two inches (5 cm) long
  • Lightweight: 7.6 oz (215 g)
  • Dust- and weather-resistant construction for working in inclement conditions

Altogether, the XF 8mm f/3.5 R WR looks like a very good performer at a decent price. Check out the video above for Frost's full thoughts on the lens.
