|XF||The lens is designed for Fujifilm digital mirrorless cameras.|
|R||The lens is equipped with aperture ring.|
|LM||The lens is equipped with linear motor to provide smooth, very fast and virtually silent autofocus. Learn more|
|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. Metallic zoom and focusing rings both rotate smoothly and are finely ribbed in order to provide a good grip and prevent slippage of fingers. The front part of the lens barrel extends forward and the overall length of the lens increases with zooming to focal length of 50mm. In Macro mode the closest focusing distance is 30cm at focal length of 18mm and 40cm at focal length of 50mm.
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 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 58 mm which are easy to find. They are also inexpensive.
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 linear motor, the autofocus is virtually silent and fast.
The lens features optical image stabilizer, which, according to the manufacturer, compensates up to 4.5 stops of shutter speed. Theoretically it allows to capture sharp images of static subjects at shutter speeds down to 1/2 second at focal length of 55 mm(*).
