Fujifilm Released an Updated XF Lens Roadmap

Fujifilm has released an updated roadmap of interchangeable lenses for the X series of mirrorless cameras.

The latest roadmap adds three new lenses: the compact, lightweight and stylish semi-wide angle 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 XF 23mm f2 R WR is expected to be announced this year while the other two will be announced in 2017.

Semi wide angle lens “XF 23mm f/2 R WR”

The semi wide angle 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 “XF 50mm f/2 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 F2R WR” lenses, this lens features a compact, lightweight and stylish appearance which creates a new “compact prime trio” range within the complete lineup of interchangeable lenses for “X Series” digital cameras.

Mid-telephoto macro lens “XF 80mm f/2.8 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 is weather and dust-resistant and can be mounted with a teleconverter as a telephoto macro lens which is equivalent to 171mm* (in the 35mm film format) with the 1.4x teleconverter and equivalent to 244mm** (in the 35mm film format) with the 2x teleconverter. The lens, covering macro photography from mid-telephoto to telephoto range, also features high-performance image stabilization.

*The lens’s maximum aperture is reduced to F4 when mounted with the 1.4x teleconverter.
**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 satisfy the user needs 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.
