[Amazon Canada] Fujifilm Lens XF16-55 F2.8 $916.54

Pretty much all Fuji XF lenses are on sale now on Amazon.ca. But this one is the biggest price drop I’ve found so far. Sold/ship by amazon & lowest price per ccc.

Saw the Camel alert this morning. Even though an unexpected car repair just cost me $1500 this week, still ordered. Amazing price for this lens.

I am not interested in that lens, since Fuji will release a 16-80mm F4 with OIS next year, but thank you for the heads-up. +1

For others: the price of the 16-55mm f2.8 is usualy $1000-1200 USD, so this is a fantastic deal if you are interested in the lens. Do note that they also have a couple of warehouse deals, including one that is sub-900$.

I'm so tempted by this but it's just lust. I have 3 f2 primes that work great and their size makes them better for my use.

When I had a Canon system I had all the f2.8 full frame zooms and they rarely got used. It was just not worth carrying 5-10lbs of gear to take family and nature photos.
Be a nice person and enjoy life

Just had a though: you can price match on Henry's! You can reduce the price and possibly save on taxes (if out of province).

Thanks OP! Got one even though I’m in the middle of a home renovation. Not the best time to buy a lens but at this price I couldn’t resist!

I wanted to buy that XF18mm pancake since I got my Fuji (that like 4 years ago); but ~700 CAD still sooo pricey :(

First of all: Why? That lens is really the worse Fuji XF lens by a strong margin. If you really want a pancake, the 27mm is better... but also the 2nd worse Fuji XF lens IMHO.

Secondly: If you really want to buy one, go to ebay. It was one of the first 3 lenses for the system, thus there are in very high supply. You could get one for less than $400 probably (source: I sold mine for less than that).

Thirdly: If you want a small, affordable wide angle prime lens, wait for next year's 16mm f2.8.

Do henry price match with amazon?
If I buy something that is not in deep discounted, my father will punish me; everyone will laugh at me. I will be the strange kid who doesn't fit in.
