Fiju X and G Mount Roadmaps Updated, First Images!
The updated X-mount roadmap introduces two new lenses which are slated for announcement in 2018:
Ultra Wide Angle Zoom Lens “XF 8-16mmF2.8 R LM WR”
“XF8-16mmF2.8 R LM WR” is an ultra-wide angle zoom lens with a focal length equivalent to 12-24mm (on a 35mm format) and maximum F2.8 aperture. It is a lens most suited to shooting dynamic landscapes, night views and architecture. With the “XF16-55mmF2.8 R LM WR” and “XF50-140mmF2.8 R LM OIS WR”, Fujifilm’s XF lenses will cover F2.8 across the entire zoom range of Wide/Standard/Telephoto shooting areas.
Telephoto Prime Lens “XF 200mmF2 R LM OIS WR”
“XF200mmF2 R LM OIS WR” is a telephoto prime lens with a focal length equivalent to 305mm (on a 35mm format) and maximum bright F2.0 aperture. It is a lens most suited to shooting sports, nature, or wild-birds. Both the existing “FUJINON Teleconverter XF1.4X TC WR” and “FUJINON Teleconverter XF2.0X TC WR” are compatible, so it can be used as an ultra-telephoto lens.
The G-mount roadmap introduces a new lens and a 1.4X teleconverter, also for release in 2018:
Telephoto Prime Lens “GF 250mmF4 R LM OIS WR”
“GF250mmF4 R LM OIS WR” is a telephoto prime lens with a focal length equivalent to 198mm (on a 35mm format) and maximum F4 aperture, enabling a beautiful bokeh effect for shooting portrait and landscapes images.
Tele Converter “GF 1.4X TC WR”
The “GF1.4X TC WR” is a high-performance teleconverter capable of multiplying the focal length by 1.4x. Compatible with “GF250mmF4 R LM OIS WR”, its focal length will be 350mm (equivalent to 277mm on a 35mm format).
All four are sure to be hot releases next year so be on the look out for more news in the future!
