High performance, standard focal length prime lens delivers sharp images with fast autofocus

Fujifilm launches the FUJINON XF35mmF2 R WR

Weather-resistant structure in a compact lightweight design for ease of use

October 21, 2015

FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Shigehiro Nakajima) has announced that the new “FUJINON XF35mmF2 R WR” will be added to the premium mirrorless camera “X-Series” interchangeable lens line-up in November 2015. It offers a focal length equivalent to 53mm* with the angle of view similar to that of the human eye, and a maximum aperture of F2.0.

The “FUJINON XF35mmF2 R WR” is a standard focal length prime lens which delivers sharp images with rich bokeh. The optical construction of 9 elements in 6 groups (including two aspherical elements) achieves the perfect balance of high image quality and compact size. The lens features the smallest diameter of the line-up and thanks to the inner focus system and stepping motor, it achieves an autofocus time of just 0.08 sec**. The exterior of the lens is weather and dust-resistant and can work in temperatures as low as -10℃. The lens is ideal for any scene and application. This is the new standard for all photography fans.

  • * 35mm format equivalent.
  • ** Complies with CIPA (Camera & Imaging Products Association) guidelines, internal measurement, during high performance mode.
1. Main Features

(1) Sharp high image-quality

  • Lens construction of 9 elements in 6 groups delivers sharp, rich image quality even at the widest aperture of F2.0.

(2) Compact and discrete optical design

  • Two aspherical lenses are used to ensure a small and compact exterior. Only 45.9mm in length with a diameter of 60mm, the slim stylish design allows comfortable operation and draws minimum attention to the photographer, making it the perfect lens for portrait, street or reportage photography.

(3) Fast autofocus of 0.08 sec

  • An inner focus system, which moves the small and lightweight lens elements, is combined with a stepping motor to produce quiet, accurate and fast autofocus - a must for all snap shooters that need to capture a spontaneous moment.

(4) All metal exterior, water and dust-resistant and -10℃ low-temperature operation

  • The lens exterior uses all metal parts to ensure the durability for a wide variety of shooting situations. The fine texture of the metal parts and the dials which respond well further enhance the shooting experience and ensure it can be operated easily and accurately with wet or gloved hands. The lens features a water and dust-resistant structure with eight seals on the lens barrel keeping the lens protected from rain, dust and splashes of water when shooting outdoors. It can also work in temperatures as low as -10℃.

(5) Two types of lens hood

  • Lens hoods block unnecessary light from entering the lens to maintain the maximum optical performance. There are two types of lens hood available for the XF35mmF2 R WR. A lightweight and compact circular lens hood is included with it and a classical and stylish metal hood LH-XF35-2 is available for purchase as an optional accessory. Both lens hoods allow the front lens cap to be used while attached.
