Fujifilm has released an updated X-Mount lens roadmap for 2016.
Three new lenses have been added to the lens roadmap. These are the XF 23mm f/2 R WR, XF 50mm f/2 R WR and the XF 80mm f/2.8 R LM OIS WR.
We can say that the previously listed the XF 120mm F2.8 R Macro model has been replaced with a new model. It is the XF 80mmF2.8 R LM OIS WR to meet the market demand for compact and lightweight lenses.
The expanded 25-lens lineup covers extensive angles of view from ultra-wide angle to ultra-telephoto. Fuji will now expand the macro category to further enhance photographic versatility.
Fujifilm Updates X-Mount Lens Roadmap for 2016
The semi wide angle lens XF 23mm F2 R WR is a compact, lightweight and stylish optic features a high-speed autofocus capability. It gives the field of view equivalent to 35mm in the full-frame format.
The XF 50mm F2 R WR has a field of view equivalent to 76mm in 35mm film format. The mid telephoto lens provides beautiful bokeh and high-speed autofocus. The optic is ideally suited for portrait photography.
Similar to the new XF 23mm F2 R WR and existing XF 35mm F2R WR models, this lens features a compact, lightweight and stylish appearance. It creates a new “compact prime trio” range within the complete lineup of interchangeable lenses for “X Series” digital cameras.
The XF 80mm F2.8 R LM OIS WR is the X series’ first 1:1 macro interchangeable lens. This mid-telephoto macro lens gives the field of view equivalent to 122mm. It is weather and dust-resistant.
The optic can be mounted with a teleconverter as a telephoto macro lens. It is equivalent to 171mm in the 35mm film format with the 1.4x teleconverter. And equivalent to 244mm (in the 35mm film format) with the 2x teleconverter. The optic covers macro photography from mid-telephoto to telephoto range. It also features high-performance image stabilization.
