Fuji has announced the new XF 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR lens to go along with its X-series of cameras, like the X-T1.

The new Fuji XF 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR lens features a weather-resistant design with more than 20 weather sealed points. As such, it is design to mate nicely with the weather sealed X-T1. It also offers 5-stops of image stabilization through the built-in OIS stabilizer. On Fuji’s X-series cameras, the lens covers a 27-206mm full frame equivalent focal range.
