Fujifilm updates its development roadmap for interchangeable lenses for the “X series” of digital cameras

Three new interchangeable prime lenses form a 25-lens lineup that supports a wide range of shooting subjects.

07.07.2016

FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Kenji Sukeno) has released an updated roadmap for developing interchangeable lenses for the X series of mirrorless digital cameras.

The latest roadmap adds three new lenses: the compact, lightweight and stylish semi-wideangle lens "XF23mmF2 R WR", the compact mid-telephoto lens "XF50mmF2 R WR" and the mid-telephoto 1:1 macro lens "XF80mmF2.8 R LM OIS WR Macro". The expanded 25-lens lineup covers extensive angles of view from ultra wideangle to ultra telephoto, and will now also cover the macro category to further enhance photographic versatility.

Focal length (35mm format equiv.)  The roadmap is as of July, 2016.  Specifications are subject to change.

Three lenses newly added to the roadmap

  • Semi wideangle lens "XF23mmF2 R WR"
    The semi wideangle lens "XF23mmF2 R WR" gives the field of view equivalent to 35mm (in the 35mm film format).  The compact, lightweight and stylish lens features a high-speed autofocus capability, making it perfect for casual snapshots.
  • Mid telephoto lens "XF50mmF2 R WR"
    The mid telephoto lens "XF50mmF2 R WR" has a field of view equivalent to 76mm (in the 35mm film format). Its beautiful bokeh and high-speed autofocus are ideally suited for portrait photography.
    Similarly to the new "XF23mmF2 R WR" and existing "XF35mm F2 R WR" lenses, this lens features a compact, lightweight and stylish appearance and creates a new "compact prime trio" range within the complete lineup of interchangeable lenses for "X Series" digital cameras.
  • Mid-telephoto 1:1 macro lens "XF80mmF2.8 R LM OIS WR"
    This mid-telephoto macro lens with the field of view equivalent to 122mm (in the 35mm film format) is the X series’ first 1:1 macro interchangeable lens.  It can be mounted with a teleconverter to be used as a telephoto macro lens equivalent to 171mm*1 (in the 35mm film format) with the 1.4x teleconverter and equivalent to 244mm*2 (in the 35mm film format) with the 2x teleconverter.  The lens, covering macro photography from mid-telephoto to telephoto range, also features a high-performance image stabilization.

*1 The lens’s maximum aperture is reduced to F4 when mounted with the 1.4x teleconverter.
*2 The lens’s maximum aperture is reduced to F5.6 when mounted with the 2x teleconverter.

Changes from the previous roadmap released on February 10, 2015

The "XF120mmF2.8 R Macro" lens, listed in the previous roadmap, has been replaced with the "XF80mmF2.8 R LM OIS WR" to meet the market demand for compact and lightweight lenses.  To cater to our customers who were expecting a telephoto macro lens, this new lens is compatible with the existing teleconverters to extend its reach into the telephoto range.

Your continued support for X-mount lenses is sincerely appreciated.
