Key features

The new XF18-135mm lens is suited to a variety of scene types and subject matters as it covers frequently used angles of view.  These include wide-angle shooting, often used for landscapes and architecture with an excellent sense of perspective (27mm equivalent); a normal angle of view that naturally captures the image as it is (35mm, 40mm, 50mm equivalent); and telephoto, which allows you to zoom right in to capture portraits and sports scenes (85mm, 135mm, 200mm equivalent) with its 7.5x zoom.

To achieve high descriptive performance with sharpness and rich contrast from the wide-angle to the telephoto, high-performance glass including 4 aspherical glass lenses and 2 ED glass lenses has been used.  Multi-layer HT-EBC, which has high permeability (99.8%) and low reflectance (0.2%), is applied to the entire lens to effectively reduce lens flare and ghosting, which often occur in backlight conditions. Utilising the wide zoom range of the lens, there is more freedom in composition and selecting angles.

* 35mm format equivalent

The XF18-135mm F3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR uses an inner focusing mechanism for rapid autofocus speeds.  This was engineered by making the focus lens lighter and installing a linear motor.  When this lens is combined with an X-series camera body which is compatible with phase detection AF, smooth photography is offered with faster AF.
