Not everyone needs either this wide a focal length or a large aperture in their wide-angle lens. Not everyone has the kind of budget that this lens requires. Those that don’t might be better served by the 10-24mm or one of the wide-angle primes. But if you value the versatility of a zoom and a large maximum aperture (and don’t mind paying for it), the XF 8-16mm is almost certain to make you happy. It produces beautiful images and just works, period.

Its is a very good lens. If you don't need a filter or don't mind shelling out extra money for a cumbersome filter holder setup, you will be rewarded with very good sharpness and overall optical performance at every focal length, even when shooting at f/2.8. Further, having a constant f/2.8 aperture is great. However, this sharpness comes at a cost. The XF 8-16mm is fairly heavy and expensive, weighing nearly two pounds and costing $2,000 USD.
