Fujifilm has added a new medium telephoto prime, ultra-wide-angle prime and standard macro lenses to its lens development roadmap for interchangeable XF lenses for its X series mirrorless cameras.
The Fujifilm XF 56mm F1.2 medium telephoto prime lens will join the company’s new range of large-aperture prime lenses, which will now cover focal lengths from 18mm (wide angle, equivalent to 27mm in the 35mm film format) to 56mm (mid-telephoto, 85mm equivalent).
The forthcoming XF 56mm F1.2 will be an update to the existing XF 56mm F1.2 lens.
Also joining Fujifilm’s Compact Prime series will be the XF 30mm F2.8 R Macro, standard macro lens in a compact, lightweight design that will be intended to cover a wider range of shooting situations.
Finally, Fujifilm will also develop the XF 8mm F3.5, a new ultra-wide-angle prime lens that will be the widest focal length of any XF series optic.
Fujifilm says the new Compact Prime lenses are intended to both broaden the range’s coverage and cater to more diverse shooting needs.
Fujifilm’s XF range now totals 42 lenses, including the three that have just been added to the lens roadmap.
