Yesterday I took the Fuji XF 16-55mm F2.8 R LM WR Fujinon zoom lens out with my Bayer CMOS sensor Fuji X camera, the X-A1. I shot some tripod mounted landscape shots and some video clips. As expected, the non X-Trans Sensor files showed no signs of the 'smearing' / 'watercolour' effect, which was handy since there was a lot of green foliage in my images.

Plus, as I suspected, the video from the CMOS sensor was better too. As you can see in the YouTube clip above, the footage is nice and sharp and shows no sign of the unpleasant breakup that the X-Trans sensor often creates. And yes, it makes me believe yet again, that Fuji might like to think again about what sensor they use. They won't of course, but I can but try.

Once again an impressive result from the Fuji XF 16-55mm F2.8 R LM WR Fujinon zoom lens. Whether in a situation like this it's more useful than the 18-135mm zoom (It's probably not) there is no denying that it's a high quality lens, though with the tripod, it was somewhat weighty, particularly since I had some steep slopes to struggle up. But all in all another impressive performance.
