Fuji releases it’s first water resistant lens and it raises the bar in image stabilization… literally. As if the water resistant part of it wasn’t enough, the new lens, XF18-135mmF3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR, carries two high-precision gyro sensors, raising 5 stops of image stabilization. For example, if a photo is taken at 1/15s with stabilization on, the image will come out as crisp as the same shot taken at 1/500th. Impressively, Fuji is calling this the world’s most advanced image stabilization system on the market.
And the features don’t stop there, other impressive features include 20 sealing points, “for a durable, weather-resistant and dust-proof design,”, and new air vents integrated into the interior and bottom of the lens barrel to keep dust and moisture away.
