The Fujinon XF 100-400 mm f/4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR is a weather-sealed telephoto lens with a 152-609 mm equivalent in 35 mm format. The lens has an optical construction of 21 elements in 14 groups, and includes five ED lenses and one Super ED lens to help reduce chromatic aberration. Fujifilm says it delivers the highest image quality in its class.
The lens has been designed for handheld shooting with a 5.0-stop image stabilization system and twin linear motors for speedy autofocus. This, says the company, makes it perfect for shooting fast-moving subjects.
The lens is also water and dust resistant and can operate in temperatures as low as -10°C. A fluorine coating has also been applied to the front lens element to repel water and dirt.
The lens includes a hood features a sliding window for accessing a polarizing filter and locking mechanism.
The lens is compatible with the XF1.4X TC WR teleconverter and optional lens plate MLP-75XF.
The Fujinon XF 100-400 mm f/4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR lens will be available in February for $2,149.99.
