Rumors have been swirling that Fujifilm will be replacing the trusty XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM OIS kit lens – and now a leaked image of its replacement has emerged.

Kit lenses are the optics that come with a camera body in a bundle or 'kit', and typically have a standard zoom range with a variable aperture. When it comes to the best Fujifilm cameras using the X mount, it looks like the kit lens of choice will soon change to the new Fujinon XF 16-50mm f/2.8-4.8 R LM WR.
