Fuji 16–55mm f/2.8 Review — Part 2

Last week, I was fortunate enough to travel to Boston for a class related to my career. I planned my visit to arrive there a day early so I could sight see and take lots of photos. In the past, I’ve travelled with a lot of photo gear, but no more. I’ve learned my lesson, and it’s just not worth the hassle of carrying the gear through the airport, trying to cram into a tiny space on the plane (or have them try to forcefully confiscate it from you and check it), etc. So, I packed my Fuji X-T1, 16–55mm f/2.8, and a B+W Kaesemann polarizer (used for all the outdoor shots).

Places visited: Thinking Cup, Copley Square, Flour Bakery, Harvard, Fenway Park, and the Boston Fish Exchange.

It’s been a busy week, and this is the first time I have really sat down at my computer in seven days. I haven’t had time to post process these images at all, they were all shot with the X-T1 using the Velvia preset.

Bottom line, the lens focuses fast, it’s sharp, and a very useful focal length. Without a doubt, I highly recommend this lens!
