XF50mmF2 R WR Black+Silver Oblique 01

Fujifilm has announced a new 50mm standard zoom lens for X-Series cameras. 

The Fujifilm XF50mm f/2 R WR will be available in mid February 2017. Fujifilm say it's a compact and stylish optic that also offers high speed AF and weighs just 200g.

The lens will have an RRP of £449.

Also announced today were the X-T20 mirrorless camera and X100F advanced compact.

From Fujifilm:

The XF50mm f/2 R WR is a mid-telephoto lens that delivers the very best results from Fujifilm’s unique X-TRANS CMOS sensor. Its compact and lightweight design features 9 elements in 7 groups, including one aspherical ED lens, and has an inner focusing system, driven by a stepping motor for fast and silent autofocusing.

Metal parts are used extensively on the exterior for a stylish, robust design with a premium feel, while the aperture and focusing rings have been designed to be comfortable and easy to use. The lens is also weather and dust resistant, and operates in temperatures as low as -10°C, making it ideal for shooting in a variety of conditions.

The XF50mm f/2 R WR will add to Fujifilm’s line-up of compact, lightweight and stylish lenses, which currently includes the FUJINON XF35mm f/2 R WR and XF23mm f/2 R WR, further broadening the appeal of Fujifilm mirrorless digital cameras.

Fujifilm Fujinon XF50mm f/2 R WR features:

 

Advanced optical performance

  • The lens features 9 lens elements in 7 groups including one aspherical ED lens, which prevents spherical and chromatic aberrations. This ensures the lens delivers outstanding results and minimises variances in image quality at different shooting distances.

 

Compact, lightweight and stylish design

  • The lens weighs just 200g.
  • The metal exterior uses the same design style as XF35mmF2 R WR and XF23mmF2 R WR for a robust, premium feel.
  • The compact and stylish design almost completely eliminates mechanical vignetting when using the optical viewfinder on the FUJIFILM X-Pro2 camera.
  • The aperture and focusing rings feature precise click stops and smooth damping for easy operation.

 

Fast and silent autofocus

  • The inner focusing AF system uses a stepping motor to drive lightweight focusing elements for a fast, silent autofocus performance.

 

Weather and dust resistant, capable of operating in temperatures as low as -10°C

The lens is weather-sealed at ten points around the barrel, making it weather and dust resistant. It will also continue to operate in temperatures as low as -10°C. Used with the weather and dust-resistant FUJIFILM X-Pro2 or X-T2 bodies means users can shoot confidently in light rain or dusty environments.
