|XF||The lens is designed for Fujifilm digital mirrorless cameras.|
|R||The lens is equipped with aperture ring.|
|OIS||The lens is equipped with optical image stabilizer. The stabilizer allows to increase the shutter speed by several stops and shoot handheld in such lighting conditions and at such focal lengths where without stabilizer you will have to use tripod, decrease the shutter speed and/or increase the ISO setting which can lead to blurry and noisy images.|

Design and Features
The lens barrel is of moderate weight, made of metal. The lens mount is metallic. Both the rubberized zoom ring and metallic focusing ring rotate smoothly and are finely ribbed in order to provide a good grip and prevent slippage of fingers. The physical length remains constant both with zooming and focusing.
The focusing ring is not physically coupled with the focusing mechanism and works electronically (focus-by-wire) - turning of the ring actuates an electric motor that moves the focusing group of the lens to the proper position to achieve sharp focus.
The lens is equipped with free spinning aperture ring which lacks any marks, like 18-55/2.8-4 R LM OIS and 55-200/3.5-4.8 models. Since 10-24/4 R OIS is a zoom lens with constant speed, there is absolutely no reason an aperture scale couldn’t have been put in this lens, as it is on Fujifilm prime lenses.
The lens has rather narrow focal range. Formally it is the disadvantage, however in practice it contributes to a good compensation of optical aberrations and equally high image quality at the entire focal range.
The lens lacks focusing mode switch, therefore you have to set the automatic or manual focus mode from the camera.
The lens uses front filters with standard size of 72 mm which are easy to find. However, filters of such size are more expensive and mainly used with professional lenses.
The filter thread does not rotate during focusing which allows convenient use of different types of filters (including but not limited to polarizing and gradient).
The lens is equipped with stepping motor, the autofocus is virtually silent and very fast.
The lens features optical image stabilizer, which, according to the manufacturer, compensates up to 3 stops of shutter speed. Theoretically it allows to capture sharp images of static subjects at shutter speeds down to 1/3 second at focal length of 24 mm*).
