If you asked photojournalists what was the lens they’d weld to their camera, there is a good chance that it would be the 24-70 f/2.8. And this is exactly the segment that Fuji is targeting with their announcement of their XF 16-55mm f/2.8 R LM WR Weather-Resistant lens (preorder).
The lens features an X-Mount which is compatible with Fuji’s line of mirrorless camera and will probably provide a good argument to everyone who are saying that the mirrorless system is still lacking critical glass.
As for features, you can see the full list after the jump, but the main ones are 16-55mm focal length 2.8 all the way (equivalent to 24-82.5mm on a full frame sensor); a 14-point Weather-Resistant Construction; Optical Image Stabilization and Nano-GI and HT-EBC Lens Coatings.
