    Fujifilm X-A5 Announcement

      News

    Fujifilm has presented a successor of the X-A3 model from 2016. The new model is called X-A5 and it's supposed to be a more effective and improved version of A3.

    The camera is equipped with the CMOS APS-C sensor with the resolution of 24Mp. The sensor is  supported by a processor (1.5x more effective than in the previous model) thanks to which we will be able to take photographs within the ISO range of 200-12800, with a possibility of expanding to 100-51200. The maximum speed of photographing is 6f/s.

    The new X-A5 is equipped with the phase-detection autofocus thanks to which focusing is supposed to be faster and make tracking of objects moving through the frame more effective.  

    Huge novelties are the possibilities of recording films in 4K (the maximum length - 5 minutes) and in 4x slow-motion in HD, with the use of High-Speed HD Video.

    When it comes to ergonomy, the camera is almost identical to its predecessor. The body is in the retro style with a slightly accentuated grip. The 3'' touchscreen is folding and its resolution is 1 040 000 points. We can fold it in such a way that during a full folding it is not blocked by the body. With the use of a new battery, we will be able to take 450  photographs.

      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.

      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 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.
