Fujifilm XF 50mm f/1 R WR Lens in Development instead of 33mm f/1

Alongside the announcement of the X-Pro 3 camera, Fujifilm has said it is developing a XF 50mm f/1.0 lens for its X-mount mirrorless cameras and cancelling the promised 33mm f/1.

As part of the presentation, Fujifilm’s Head of Product Planning, Takashi Ueno said that the XF 33mm f/1 R WR Lens had become too big and heavy as it was being developed. The latest prototype weighed 1300g (45.8oz), included 15 elements and necessitated the addition of a tripod foot. Instead the company has said it will build a 50mm F1.0, that can be under 900g (31.7oz).

The ultra-fast Fujifilm XF 50mm f/1 R WR will be the first mirrorless lens with a maximum aperture of f/1.0 with AF capability. Continue reading “Fujifilm XF 50mm f/1 R WR Lens in Development instead of 33mm f/1”
