Fujifilm unveils the latest development of the "X Mount Lens Roadmap", the interchangeable lens range for the X Series digital cameras. By expanding the high performance lens line-up, Fujifilm covers more focal lengths from ultra-wide to telephoto shooting scenarios
FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Kenji Sukeno) is proud to announce the latest development of the “X Mount Lens Roadmap” the interchangeable lens range for the X Series digital cameras, achieving advanced image quality combined with Fujifilm’s unique color reproduction technology. With the release of the Roadmap, details of an “Ultra Wide Angle Zoom Lens” and a “Telephoto Prime Lens” have been unveiled.
“XF8-16mmF2.8 R LM WR” is an ultra-wide angle zoom lens with a focal length equivalent to 12-24mm (on a 35mm format) and maximum F2.8 aperture. It is a lens most suited to shooting dynamic landscapes, night views and architecture. With the “XF16-55mmF2.8 R LM WR” and “XF50-140mmF2.8 R LM OIS WR”, Fujifilm’s XF lenses will cover F2.8 across the entire zoom range of Wide/Standard/Telephoto shooting areas.
“XF200mmF2 R LM OIS WR” is a telephoto prime lens with a focal length equivalent to 305mm (on a 35mm format) and maximum bright F2.0 aperture. It is a lens most suited to shooting sports, nature, or wild-birds. Both the existing “FUJINON Teleconverter XF1.4X TC WR” and “FUJINON Teleconverter XF2.0X TC WR” are compatible, so it can be used as an ultra-telephoto lens.
Fujifilm will continue to expand the lens line-up from ultra-wide to telephoto to support a wide range of photography styles and requirements. The release date of the “MK Series for X Mount version” will now be 2018 rather than 2017, as previously communicated.
