September 3, 2021
TOKYO, September 2, 2021 – FUJIFILM Corporation (President: 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 two new lenses, an ultra-telephoto zoom and a high-magnification zoom.
Fujifilm has actively added new X Series products and expanded the lineup of XF lenses to broaden the appeal of photographical potential delivered by the compact and lightweight X Mount system*1. Newly added XF lenses to the roadmap are an ultra-telephoto zoom lens and a high-magnification zoom lens, establishing a 40 lens lineup covering extensive focal lengths to cater to diverse shooting needs.
Interchangeable lenses newly added to the roadmap
① Ultra-telephoto zoom lens
This ultra-telephoto zoom lens offers focal lengths from 150mm to 600mm (equivalent to 229-914mm in the 35mm format), the longest in the lineup of the X Series. The focal lengths from telephoto to the ultra-telephoto range make it a perfect choice for shooting athletes or wildlife in the far distance. Its compact design, thanks to the advantage of the X Mount system, provides an outstanding mobility, allowing users to shoot hand-held with ease.
② High-magnification zoom lens
This high-magnification zoom lens covers the focal length from 18mm to 120mm (equivalent to 27-183mm in the 35mm format). This is the first XF lens to feature a function that assists full-fledged one-person video recording, facilitating diverse needs from still photography to videography.
Fujifilm has today announced the launch of the large-diameter wide-angle prime lens “FUJINON Lens XF23mmF1.4 R LM WR” and the large-diameter standard prime lens “FUJINON Lens XF33mmF1.4 R LM WR.” Including the large-diameter wide-angle prime lens “FUJINON Lens XF18mmF1.4 R LM WR,” released in May this year, a total of three lenses form a new-generation “large diameter prime” series with superior resolution capabilities, catering to future advancement in image sensor resolutions.
With the versatile lineup including the new-generation “large diameter prime” series and the two lenses added to the roadmap this time, Fujifilm will continue to evolve the X Mount system, providing photographic pleasure to users.
