This ultra-wide angle zoom lens for Fujifilm X-series interchangeable lens cameras provides a field of view equivalent to 15-36mm lens on a 35mm camera and sports a constant maximum aperture of f/4. This lens also includes optical image stabilisation, which may help to aid the taking of hand-held longer exposure shots than would otherwise be possible without the system.

You may notice that this lens is virtually the same as the 56mm f/1.2 lens however, this one contains an apodisation (APD) filter in the optical path which helps to improve the appearance of out of focus areas, with no loss of sharpness where the image is in focus. Overall, the lens is incredibly sharp, whether you’re shooting with the aperture wide open, or not but if you require fast apertures, for low light shooting, the standard non-APD version may be a better choice for you.
