The Fujinon XF 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR (what a mouthful) was announced quite some time back in one of Fujifilm’s lens roadmaps and it has been highly anticipated since. The wait is finally over and Fujifilm finally launched it today. This acronym-laden lens is no ordinary superzoom. It is designed to go along with the weather-sealed Fujifilm X-T1 and is the first weather-resistant lens in the Fujifilm lineup of lenses.

What is more impressive however, is the stabilisation technology Fujifilm has built into the lens. Utilising two high-precision gyro sensors, it promises an unprecedented 5 stops of image stabilisation. This means that you can shoot at 1/30s what would previously require a shutter speed of 1/1000th of a second and still have a sharp image (unless of course, your subject moves.)

The lens will set you back US$900 and is available from July.

YS: It all sounds nice, but I bet all of you are waiting for the f/2.8 zooms, right? Right?
