Along with the Fujifilm X-S10 camera and Fujinon XF 10-24mm f/4 R OIS WR lens., Fujifilm also announced the latest development roadmap for interchangeable lenses for the X Series of compact and lightweight mirrorless cameras.

Fujifilm Introduces Fujinon XF 10-24mm f/4 R OIS WR Lens

In addition to the Fujifilm X-S10 camera, Fuji also announced the Fujinon XF 10-24mm f/4 R OIS WR lens. The optical layout is just the same, but the new lens boasts slimmer zoom and focus rings, better stabilisation and a new, marked aperture dial.

Covering an equivalent focal length range of 15-36mm in full-frame terms, the XF 10-24mm F4 R OIS WR is a high-quality wide-angle option for Fujifilm X-series shooters. Now featuring weather-resistance, the new lens should be a better companion for the similarly tough X-T4 and X-T3.

Despite the sealing, the new lens is very slightly lighter than its predecessor (by 25g / 0.9oz) and optical image stabilization has been improved by one stop, bringing the total stabilizing effect to a rated 3.5EV (CIPA). When combined with the in-camera IBIS system of the X-T4, total stabilization increases to 6.5EV.

The new lens will be available next month, for an MSRP of $999.95 USD. Continue reading…
