FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Shigehiro Nakajima) has announced that the new “FUJINON TELECONVERTER XF1.4X TC WR”, a teleconverter extending the telephoto area of X Mount lenses*, will be added to the premium mirrorless camera “X-Series” interchangeable lens line-up in November 2015.
The “FUJINON TELECONVERTER XF1.4X TC WR” is a high-performance teleconverter capable of multiplying the focal length of mounted lenses* by 1.4x. Although the aperture becomes one f-stop higher when mounted, the teleconverter features an excellent optical design with a construction of 7 elements in 3 groups to maintain the optical performance of the original lens. Also, thanks to the unified design when mounted to a compatible lens*, the teleconverter is weather and dust-resistant and operates at temperatures as low as -10℃. This makes it possible to be used with confidence outdoors when used with the weather and dust-resistant X-T1 camera body and XF50-140mmF2.8 R LM OIS WR lens.
(1) High image quality design which maintains the optical performance of the original lens
(2) The camera's autofocus performance is unaffected by the addition of the teleconverter
(3) Weather and dust-resistant and -10℃ low-temperature operation
(4) High-grade subtle appearance
