The photographers who use the Fujifilm system surely have reasons to be delighted. Today Fujifilm presented two promising lenses for the XF system, XF 200mm f/2 R LM OIS WR and XF 8-16mm f/2.8 R LM WR, which we've discussed in a separate article. Fujinon XF 200mm f/2 R LM OIS WR is a good-looking beast which has been designed for sports and nature photography.
The optical system of XF 200mm f/2 R LM OIS WR consists of 19 elements, placed in 14 groups. Among them there is one super-ED lens and two ED ones. The front optical element is covered with a fluorite anti-reflective coating which is supposed to prevent light reflections.

Perfect image quality is to be achieved not only thanks to a 9-blade aperture but also thanks to a precise lens-polishing technology, which is used in very expensive lenses sold by the producer.
Apart from a great optical system, new Fujinon is also supposed to be distinguished due to its ultra-quick, precise and quiet autofocus system. The lens applies linear motors and it is equipped with a new mechanism which immobilizes focusing lenses when the camera is not used.
The lens also possesses a new Focus Preset function which immediately changes focus to a specific position, enabling photographers to catch a main object in the frame without a need to regulate focusing.

What's more, the lens offers a 5-grade vibration reduction, which, as the producer states, recognizes photography conditions and automatically applies the optimal image stabilization control.
Of course, the lens is fully made of magnesium and it is sealed in 17 sensitive points. The construction weighs 2265g and it has the dimensions of 206 × 122mm. The lens is covered with a light mat coating whose task is to reflect sun rays and, as a result, prevent the construction's overheating.

New XF 200mm f/2 R LM OIS WR will be available as a set with the XF1.4X TC f/2 WR teleconverter. Thanks to this we will be able to increase the focal length range from 305mm to 427mm (full-frame equivalence) but, at the same time, we will lose one f-stop. After connecting to the teleconverter, the nominal hole will be f/2.8. The XF1.4X TC f/2 WR converter consists of 7 optical elements (including 1 aspheric lens), placed in 4 groups.
