Today, Fujifilm released an updated roadmap for X mount interchangeable lenses.
The XF90mmF2.0R large-diameter medium telephoto lens appears for the first time on the XF lens roadmap for first half of 2015. The next available lens will be the XF50-140mm F2.8 R OIS WR weather resistant lens designed to partner the X-T1. Other updates include the approximate timing for the XF16mmF1.4 R ultra-wide angle lens (mid 2015), the XF16-55mmF2.8 WR lens (Spring 2015) and the (as yet unnamed) super telephoto zoom lens (Winter 2015).
Fujifilm releases a new roadmap for X-mount lenses
July 24, 2014
FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Shigehiro Nakajima) is pleased to release an updated roadmap for X-mount interchangeable lenses.
Following the June announcement of the XF18-135mm F3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR weather-resistant lens, the next lens introduction will be the XF50-140mm F2.8 R OIS WR lens; the second weather-resistant lens designed to partner with the Fujifilm X-T1 camera.
A new addition to the developmental roadmap includes a large-diameter medium tele-photo prime lens; the XF90mm F2.0 R, planned for mid 2015.
Other updates to the developmental roadmap include the confirmation of the previously announced “Ultra-Wide Angle lens” as the XF16mm F1.4 R with a planned launch date of mid 2015. The planned launch of the XF16-55mm F2.8 WR lens is moved to Spring 2015 and the Super Tele-Photo Zoom lens to Winter 2015.
Highly regarded for their outstanding image quality, resolution and well-built bodies, the unique X-mount lens product family will span a range from super-wide angle to super-telephoto range lenses and a large-diameter lens with rich bokeh and high resolution.
