    Fujifilm Fujinon XF 8-16mm f/2.8 R LM WR Announcement

      News

    The second lens which had its premiere today is Fujifilm Fujinon XF 8-16mm f/2.8 R LM WR, an ultra-wide angle zoom which ensures the equivalence of 12-24mm f/2.8. This lens will surely be gladly welcomed by many landscape and architecture photographers.

    Inside a new wide-angle Fujijon zoom we will find the optical system consisting of 20 elements, placed in 13 groups. Among them there are 4 aspheric lenses, which are supposed to control distortions and spherical aberrations, as well as 3 ED elements and 3 super-ED ones. Additionally, the back part of two front lenses is covered with the Nano-GI coating, which is supposed to eliminate light leaks and flares caused by a diagonal incidence of light on optical elements.

    A 9-blade aperture with a nominal f/2.8 hole, which can be closed up to f/22, is responsible for image plasticity. The construction of the lens is supposed to guarantee the advanced image reproduction functions within the whole range of apertures and focal lengths.

    2 liner autofocus motors are responsible for focusing. This should positively influence the speed and precision of focus adjustment – also from the minimum focus distance of 25 cm.

    New Fujinon is also supposed to work effectively in hard, demanding conditions. The tube is made of magnesium and it is additionally sealed in 11 places. As a result, the lens is to be resistant to dust, splashes and low temperatures (-10° C). The lens weighs 805g and it has the dimensions of 122 x 88mm.

    Fujifilm Fujinon XF 8-16mm f/2.8 R LM WR is to appear on sale at the end of November. It will cost $2000.

    Today Fuji also presented an updated map of lenses. We've found three interesting constructions there: XF 33mm f/1 R WR which ensures the equivalence of 50mm f/1.5, wide-angle fixed lens 16mm f/2.8 and a stabilized zoom 16-80mm f/4.

      DESCRIPTION OF THE FUJIFILM XF10
      Fujifilm XF10 is a compact camera of the Premium class – perfect for putting in a holiday backpack.

      The camera is equipped with the 24.2Mp APS-C sensor with a conventional primary color filter (Bayer filter).

      XT10 has a permanently built-in Fujinon 18.5mm f/2.8 lens with the equivalence of 28mm. The photographers willing to reduce the focal length will have an "electronic teleconverter" at their disposal, thanks to which they will be able to narrow the field of vision to 35 or 50mm.

      We will be able to save photographs in RAW or JPEG formats, with the maximum speed of 6f/s. The ISO range is 200-12800 and this parameter can be extended to ISO 100 - 51200. The camera is equipped with the 91 - point phase-detection AF.

      It will be possible to record videos in 4K with the use of XF10, but only with the speed of 15f/s. In order to record a video with satisfactory smoothness, we will have to resign from 4K and use Full HD (59.94p / 50p / 24p / 23.98p) instead.

      At the back of the camera, there is a 3'' LCD touch screen, with the resolution of 1 040 000 points. Unfortunately, it cannot be rotated. The screen is equipped with the option of gesture recognition, with the use of which we will be able to activate the camera's functions. At the back of XF10, we will not find a classic, 4-direction selector nor many dedicated buttons which we could expect. Still, there is an AF joystick, which, apart from enabling the choice of the focus point, will also facilitate menu navigation. 

      The upper part of the camera is a bit more classic. There we will find the PASM knob with an improved SR+ automated mode as well as a separate exposition knob and a function button.

      The new Fujifilm is equipped with Bluetooth, thanks to which we will be able to transfer files to other devices. The process will be facilitated by Fujifilm Camera Remote application. XF10 also offers 11 film simulation modes and 19 filters, including two new ones: 'Rich & Fine' and 'Monochrome' [NIR].

      The camera has been designed in the retro style. Its housing is angular, with a slightly  rounded handle covered with leatherette. We will have only 2 colors to choose from: black and champagne.

      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.
       

      1). Fujifilm Fujinon XF 200mm f/2 R LM OIS WR

      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.
       

      2). Fujifilm Fujinon XF 200mm f/2 R LM OIS WR
       

      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 x 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.
       

      3). Fujifilm Fujinon XF 200mm f/2 R LM OIS WR
       
      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.
       

      4). Fujifilm Fujinon XF 200mm f/2 R LM OIS WR

      Fujifilm Fujinon XF 200mm f/2 R LM OIS WR will be available on sale at the end of October and it will cost $6000.
