A large-diameter medium telephoto lens (the XF90mmF2.0R
) features for the first time on the development road map for mid 2015.
Other updates to the road map include the previously announced “High speed wide angle lens” being confirmed as the “XF16mmF1.4 R
” with a guide launch date of mid 2015. The availability date of the XF16-55mmF2.8 WR
lens is now planned as Spring 2015 and the Super Tele-Photo Zoom lens as Winter 2015.
The next available lens will be the XF50-140mm F2.8 R OIS WR
(end 2014). Following on from the XF18-135mm
