Valhalla, NY—The Fujinon XF80mm f/2.8 R LM OIS WR is a lightweight, mid-telephoto macro lens. It is designed to deliver the best results from the Fujifilm X-Trans CMOS sensor found on the company’s latest X-series mirrorless cameras.
Capable of achieving high-quality macro shots, the new lens features an optical construction of 16 elements in 12 groups. Included are one aspherical lens, one super ED (extra-low dispersion) lens and three ED lenses.
In addition, it is the first X-series interchangeable lens to have a 1.0x magnification factor. As a result, the XF80mm f/2.8 is engineered “to achieve high resolving power and beautiful bokeh, making it a perfect lens for capturing stunning macro images,” the company announced.
Furthermore, the lens has enhanced autofocus capabilities utilizing a floating focus system built to suppress aberrations. It also supports handheld shooting with optical image stabilization said to achieve 5-stop IS. Moreover, a fluorine coating is applied to the front lens element, making it less susceptible to smudges, water and dirt. The lens is also designed to be weather and dust resistant. It is also able to operate in temperatures as low as 14°F.
Fujinon XF80mm f/2.8 R LM OIS WR Features
Additional features include compatibility with all Fujifilm X-series interchangeable-lens cameras; a linear motor for fast and near-silent autofocus performance; and support for XF1.4x and XF2.0x teleconverters. Fujifilm’s Fujinon XF80mm f/2.8 R LM OIS WR lens will be available in November 2017 for a suggested retail price of $1,199.95.
Updated X-Mount Lens Roadmap
Also announced is the latest development of the X-mount lens roadmap. The roadmap indicates future development of interchangeable lenses for Fujifilm’s X-series mirrorless digital cameras. The new roadmap adds two new lenses: the XF8–16mm f/2.8 R LM WR ultrawide-angle zoom lens and XF200mm f/2 R LM OIS WR telephoto prime lens. fujifilmusa.com
