Fujifilm announced today the long-awaited Fujinon XF35mm f2 WR lens and the Fujinon Teleconverter XF1.4X TC WR. The lens will be available in November and the teleconverter will arrive in December.
The “FUJINON XF35mmF2 R WR” is a standard focal length prime lens which delivers sharp images with rich bokeh. The optical construction of 9 elements in 6 groups (including two aspherical elements) achieves the perfect balance of high image quality and compact size. The lens features the smallest diameter of the line-up and thanks to the inner focus system and stepping motor, it achieves an autofocus time of just 0.08 sec**. The exterior of the lens is weather and dust-resistant and can work in temperatures as low as -10℃. The lens is ideal for any scene and application. This is the new standard for all photography fans.
The “FUJINON TELECONVERTER XF1.4X TC WR” is a high-performance teleconverter capable of multiplying the focal length of mounted lenses* by 1.4x. Although the aperture becomes one f-stop higher when mounted, the teleconverter features an excellent optical design with a construction of 7 elements in 3 groups to maintain the optical performance of the original lens. Also, thanks to the unified design when mounted to a compatible lens*, the teleconverter is weather and dust-resistant and operates at temperatures as low as -10℃. This makes it possible to be used with confidence outdoors when used with the weather and dust-resistant X-T1 camera body and XF50-140mmF2.8 R LM OIS WR lens.
