Fujifilm announces two new lightweight Fujinon lenses

The GF50mm f/3.5 R LM WR and the XF16-80mm f/4 R OIS WR are designed for Fujifilm’s GFX and X Series systems respectively

The new GF50mm f/3.5 R LM WR is the tenth addition to the GFX large format system lens range. The lens is the smallest and the lightest in the GF range, weighing 335g and measuring 84x48mm, with a maximum aperture of 3.5 and focal length of 50mm (equivalent to 40mm in the 35mm film format).

In addition to its compact size and light weight, the GF50mm is dust and weather resistant and capable of operating in temperatures down to -10°C, making it a promising prospect for travelling photographers.

The XF16-80mm f/4 R OIS WR is also lightweight and compact – weighing 440g with a length of 88.9mm – and features a constant F4 aperture throughout the focal length of 16-80mm (equivalent to 24-122mm in the 35mm film format).

Fujifilm states the lens possesses the highest amount of optical stabilisation in any interchangeable lens as well as a 5x zoom with a minimum focusing distance of 35cm throughout the entire zoom range. In addition to photography, this lends the lens to video shooting.

The XF16-80mm is also dust and weather resistant and capable of operating at temperatures as low as -10°C, making it suitable for use in light rain or a dusty outdoor environment.

Both lenses will be available from mid-September 2019, with an RRP of £949 for the GF50mm f/3.5 R LM WR and an RRP of £769 for the XF16-80mm f/4 R OIS WR.
