TOKYO, May 31, 2022 – FUJIFILM Corporation (President and CEO, Representative Director: Teiichi Goto) has unveiled the latest development roadmap for interchangeable XF lenses for the X Series of compact and lightweight mirrorless digital cameras, which offer outstanding image quality based on the company’s proprietary color reproduction technology. The latest roadmap shows the addition of three new lenses, i.e. a large-diameter mid-telephoto prime lens, a standard macro lens and an ultra wide-angle prime lens.

Fujifilm has actively expanded the XF lens lineup in pursuit of the X Mount system’s*1 premium image quality and advanced portability. Newly joining the new-generation “large diameter prime” series is a mid-telephoto prime lens. It expands the series’ range of focal lengths from 18mm in wide angle (equivalent to 27mm in the 35mm film format) to 56mm in mid telephoto (equivalent to 85mm in the 35mm film format). Users can enjoy the series’ impressive descriptive performance, based on its outstanding image quality and image resolution, in a wide variety of photographic situations.

Also, a standard macro lens and an ultra wide-angle prime lens are newly added to the “compact prime” series of small and lightweight lenses, further expanding the series’ shooting scenes. Taking advantage of the X Mount system’s mobility, Fujifilm will cater to diverse shooting needs.

Interchangeable lenses newly added to the roadmap

① Large-diameter mid-telephoto prime lens “XF56mmF1.2”

This is a mid-telephoto lens to join the new generation of “large-diameter prime” series, pursuing even a higher level of image quality. Its focal length of 56mm (equivalent to 85mm in the 35mm film format) and the maximum aperture of F1.2 make it a perfect portrait lens.

② Standard macro lens “XF30mmF2.8 R Macro”

This is a compact macro lens with a standard angle of view. The compact and lightweight design makes it an ideal walk-around lens that can cover a wide range of photographic situations from snapshots to landscape, portraiture and tabletop photography of foods and accessories.

③ Ultra wide-angle prime lens “XF8mmF3.5”

This is a compact ultra wide-angle prime lens that offers the widest-angle focal length of 8mm (equivalent to 12mm in the 35mm film format) among prime XF lenses. Despite being an ultra wide-angle lens, the compact and lightweight design makes it easy to carry.

With the extensive 42-lens lineup including the new three lenses added to the development roadmap, Fujifilm will meet its users’ diverse photographic needs.
