High speed AF, advanced sharpness, weather resistance, ideal for portraiture and everyday use
FUJIFILM will launch its new compact and lightweight mid-telephoto FUJINON XF50mmF2 R WR in February 2017, adding to the line-up of its renowned X Series interchangeable lenses.
The lens features a focal length equivalent to 76mm (in the 35mm film format) and a maximum aperture of F2.0 for beautiful bokeh. The compact and stylish optic also offers high speed AF and weighs just 200g.
The XF50mmF2 R WR delivers the very best results from Fujifilm’s unique X-TRANS CMOS sensor. It features 9 elements in 7 groups - including one aspherical ED lens - and has an inner focusing system1 driven by a stepping motor2 for fast and silent autofocusing.
The compact and stylish design almost completely eliminates mechanical vignetting3 when using the optical viewfinder on the FUJIFILM X-Pro2 camera.
Metal parts are used extensively on the exterior for a stylish, robust design with a premium feel, while the aperture and focusing rings have been designed to be comfortable and easy to use.
The lens is weather-sealed at 10 points around the barrel, making it weather and dust resistant. It can operate in temperatures as low as -10°C, making it ideal for shooting in a variety of conditions. Used with the weather and dust-resistant FUJIFILM X-Pro2 or X-T2 bodies means photographers can shoot confidently in light rain or dusty environments.
Fujifilm’s XF lens line-up now features 24 lenses. The FUJINON XF50mmF2 R WR is the third addition to Fujifilm’s compact and lightweight lenses, which currently includes the FUJINON XF35mmF2 R WR and FUJINON XF23mmF2 R WR.
FUJIFILM Australia National Product and Marketing Manager - Electronic Imaging, Alex Zitser, said the stylish new FUJINON XF50mmF2 R WR further broadens the appeal of Fujifilm mirrorless digital cameras.
“With its compact and lightweight design as well as its weather resistant capabilities, the FUJINON XF50mmF2 R WR makes an ideal lens for everyday use while enabling photographers to shoot in a variety of conditions,” Mr Zitser said.
The recommended retail price for the FUJINON XF50mmF2 R WR is $749, including GST.
The FUJINON XF50mmF2 R WR is expected to be available in Australia in February 2017.
