Fujifilm XF 23mm f/1.4 Mark II and XF 56mm f/1.2 Mark II in Development

According to the latest rumors from FR,  Fujifilm is working to renew two of its popular primes. As a result Fujifilm XF 23mm f/1.4 Mark II and XF 56mm f/1.2 Mark II lenses are in development.

The Fujifilm X-mount Lens Roadmap doesn’t show these prime models. So take it with a grain of salt.

The current Fujifilm XF 23mm F1.4 lens (Amazon) was released in 2013, and Fujifilm XF 56mm F1.2 lens (Amazon) was released in 2014.

We are wondering if the new model will be a full model change with a completely redesigned optical system or a minor change with improved AF and being sealed.

Fujifilm XF 18mm f/1.4 R LM WR Lens Officially Announced

The Fujifilm XF 18mm f/1.4 R WR Lens is now officially announced. The Fujifilm XF 18mm f/1.4 R LM WR is a fast prime lens for X Series mirrorless cameras that provides a 35mm equivalent focal length of 27mm.

Fujifilm already have a 27mm lens in diminutive shape of the XF 18mm F2, which was actually one of the very first lenses that Fuji released back in 2012. The XF 18mm F1.4 is a much larger lens than the 18mm F2, but it’s still relatively small and light enough to feel well-balanced even on the X-S10 that we tested it with, which is one of the smaller X-series camera bodies.

Weighing 370g and measuring 68.8mm x 75.6mm with a reasonable 62mm filter size, the new 18mm is very similar to the 16mm, 23mm and 35mm lenses. The Fujifilm XF 18mm F1.4 R LM WR lens will be available in late May for $999.
