Fujifilm unveiled the MK series of new cinema lenses for Sony E-mount cameras. The lenses are the MK 18-55mm T2.9 and MK 50-135mm T2.9.

The lenses are compatible with E-mount cameras with a Super 35mm / APS-C sensor. Fujifilm will be releasing the same lenses for X-mount by the end of the year.

The Fujinon MK 18-55mm T2.9 standard zoom lens will be the first MK lens to be released in early March 2017, priced at $3,799.95. In summer, this will be followed by the launch of the Fujinon MK 50-135mm T2.9, a telephoto zoom lens offering a focal length range of 50-135mm.

Both cine lenses offer a fast maximum aperture of T2.9 across the entire zoom range. A 9-bladed iris diaphragm enabling a shallow depth-of-field as well as a beautiful bokeh effect.

They have the same front diameter (85mm), length (206.3mm), and weight (980g), but the 18-55mm lens can focus closer (85cm vs. 120cm in regular mode, and 38cm vs. 85cm in macro mode).
