At the ‘X Summit’ in London, Fujifilm introduced several new and upcoming products. The Fujinon XF 50mm f/1.0 R WR lens were also on display and it confirmed that the fast prime optic would come this year.
The lens currently works with CDAF and Fuji is also working on PDAF. It has a 77mm front filter thread and it will be the world’s fastest production AF lens when it is released.
The Fujifilm XF 50mm f/1.0 R WR was originally going to be a 35mm F1.0 lens (52.5mm equivalent focal length), but Fujifilm pivoted to a 50mm F1.0 (75mm equivalent) design due to size, weight and autofocus speed considerations.It’s still a big lens when mounted on an Fujifilm X-T3 and comes with a 77mm filter thread and carries a ‘WR’ label for weather resistance.
Fujifilm also introduced the X100V with new 23mm f/2 lens and announced that the Fujifilm X-T4 will be unveiled later this month, on February 25th. Along with these updates the Fujifilm XF 50mm f/1.0 lens were on display at the show which the company says will be available later this year.
