Nicely, it appears to be a second for lenses, huh? After Fuji’s two new lenses with the Fuji X-H2S announcement, Sigma’s new lens and Sony’s three new APS-C lenses, Fuji’s added three extra to the X mount lens roadmap. The three new lenses are the Fujifilm XF 56mm f/1.2, the XF 30mm f/2.8 R Macro and the XF 8mm f/3.5. All three of them sound like they’ll doubtlessly be plenty of enjoyable to play with.
Fujifilm says that they’ve been increasing the lineup of XF lenses to “broaden the attraction of premium picture high quality and superior mobility made doable by the X Mount system”. This principally signifies that they know they’re missing in a few areas and now they’re attempting to make up for it. In fact, that’s not a foul factor. The extra the merrier, I say, in relation to lenses!
Concerning the new lenses, Fujifilm says the next:
XF56mmF1.2 Lens – A quick, medium telephoto prime lens
A mid-telephoto lens to hitch the brand new era of “large-aperture prime lenses” within the XF Collection.
XF30mmF2.8 R Macro Lens – A typical macro lens
A compact macro lens with a normal angle of view. Its compact and light-weight design makes it an ideal walkaround lens, protecting a variety of image-making conditions together with snapshots, panorama, portrait, in addition to tabletop images of meals and equipment.
XF8mmF3.5 Lens – An ultra-wide-angle prime lens
A compact ultra-wide-angle lens that would be the widest X Mount prime lens within the XF Collection. Regardless of the ultra-wide-angle focal size, the lens is compact and light-weight, making it an excellent walkaround lens.
They are saying that these specific lenses are in direct response to their prospects’ desires and wishes, with the 8mm, 30mm and 56mm lenses providing a full-frame discipline of view equal to 12mm, 45mm and 84mm respectively. With the three new lenses added, that brings the overall roadmap lineup to what Fuji says is “42 lenses” (together with teleconverters). Apparently, although, the roadmap solely reveals 41 merchandise. What’s lacking?
The XF 30mm f/2.8 R Macro and XF 56mm f/1.2 are anticipated to develop into out there in late 2022 whereas the XF 8mm f/3.5 is predicted to be launched in early 2023, however no particular dates or costs have but been launched.
