Previously, Fujifilm lens line-up wasn’t exactly very extensive, with a small number of well thought-out, high quality lenses. With the two latest additions, Fujifilm seeks to not only make the camera system more attractive, but also suitable for most needs. Along with the new Fuji X-M1 mirrorless camera, Fujifilm has also announced two new X-mount lenses – the Fujinon XF 27mm f/2.8 and the Fujinon 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OIS.
Overview and Press Release
Not so long ago, with the launch of the original X-Pro1, Fujifilm X lens line only consisted of three prime lenses. Though great performers, the 60mm f/2.4 macro, 35mm f/1.4 normal and 18mm f/2 wide-angle primes didn’t exactly make the system complete for most people. Ever since, though, Fujifilm has been working on new optics relentlessly. We saw three more lens announcements afterwards with two zoom lenses to add to the superb prime lens line-up. And today, with the launch of the 27mm f/2.8 and 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OIS, Fujifilm X system now offers 8 distinctive lenses for various needs.
