Two big announcements from Fujifilm today. The newest addition to the X-series digital camera line-up is called X-T10. At the same time a new XF lens arrives: the highly anticipated XF 90mm f/2 R LM WR.
Fujifilm X-T10 is the latest premium interchangeable lens model to join the world-renowned X-series digital camera line-up. Boasting outstanding image quality thanks to unique color reproduction technology, the new model, aimed at photography enthusiasts, combines a compact and lightweight body with a new AF system that excels at capturing moving subjects, as well as an electronic Real Time Viewfinder, which boasts an impressive 0.62x magnification ratio, high-definition precision 2.36 million dot display and the world’s shortest time lag of 0.005 seconds.
The X-T10 features an APS-C X-Trans™ CMOS II sensor with built-in phase detection AF. Coupled with a high-performance image processing engine and FUJINON lenses, the camera delivers excellent resolution and outstanding image quality, backed by unique color reproduction technology. The X-T10 uses a new AF system. This offers Fujifilm’s conventional 49-point AF mode for high speed and precision focusing, as well as new Zone and Wide/Tracking modes that track subject movement across a larger 77-point area, substantially improving the camera’s ability to capture moving subjects. Combined with the AF-C capability and the continuous shooting speed of up to 8.0fps4, the camera delivers the high quality images that have become synonymous with the X Series, across a broader range of photographic situations.

The new Fujinon XF90mmF2 R LM WR is offering a focal length equivalent to 137mm and a maximum aperture of F2.0, this short telephoto optic is ideal for portrait and sports photography.
It is a fast-aperture prime lens that delivers ultra-sharp images with rich bokeh even at the maximum aperture setting. The optical construction of 11 elements in 8 groups (including three ED glass elements) minimizes vignetting and creates beautiful bokeh thanks to the rounded diaphragm, which makes it perfect for portraiture as well as other applications.
Despite having a large maximum aperture, the Fujinon XF90mmF2 R LM WR is both compact and lightweight, 540g, while the minimum working distance of 60cm delivers a wide shooting range. A newly-developed Quad Linear Motor delivers fast, accurate autofocus, plus the lens also features a weather- and dust-resistant structure that can work in temperatures down to -10℃.
Along with the popular XF56mmF1.2 R, this is a must-have lens for portrait photography fans that favor fast aperture prime lenses. The focal length allows you to shoot at a distance that won’t intimidate subjects, leading to more natural, candid results.
