Fujifilm has launched two new premium XF lenses, the weather resistant Fujinon XF 50-140 mm f/2.8 R LM OIS WR and the XF 56 mm f/1.2 R APD with apodization filter for all X-Series X-Mount cameras.
The 50-140 mm lens has a focal length equivalent to 76-213 mm, and a constant f/2.8 aperture throughout the zoom range. The length of the lens barrel remains constant throughout the entire zoom range, and features a weather resistant and dust-resistant finish that can also work in temperatures as low as -10C. The lens also features a high-performance gyro sensor and a unique image stabilization algorithm.
The lens also uses the world’s first triple linear motor for fast and quiet autofocusing and shooting, says the company.
The 50-140 mm lens has 23 glass elements in 16 groups, which features five ED lens elements, and one Super ED lens element with low dispersion to substantially reduce chromatic aberrations. The lens also uses a new Nano-GI (Gradient Index) coating technology.
The Fujinon XF 56 mm f/1.2 R APD (Apodization) is a fast and nearly silent lens for X-Series cameras, says the company, which alos notes it is the world’s brightest autofocus lens for digital cameras with an APS-C sensor. In addition, Fujifilm says the new apodizing filter makes it the ideal choice for portrait photography.
The lens is constructed of 11 glass elements in eight groups, including one aspherical glass molded lens element and two extra low dispersion lens elements. Spherical aberrations are corrected by the aspherical glass element to deliver high resolution at the maximum aperture setting. Additionally, thanks to the combination of two extra-low dispersion lens elements and three cemented lens elements, chromatic aberrations are greatly reduced.
The Fujinon XF 50-140 mm f/2.8 R LM OIS WR will be available in December for $1,699.99.
