Fujifilm Unveils Three New Prime Lenses on the Updated X-mount Roadmap

Fujifilm unveiled its latest development roadmap for interchangeable XF lenses in the X Series of compact and lightweight mirrorless digital cameras. The latest roadmap features the addition of three new lenses: a large-diameter mid-telephoto prime lens, a standard macro lens, and an ultra-wide-angle prime lens.

Fujifilm has been expanding the lineup of XF lenses to broaden the appeal of premium image quality and advanced mobility made possible by the X Mount system. As part of this expansion, a medium telephoto prime lens joins the new generation of large-aperture prime lenses, which will now cover broad focal lengths from 18mm (wide-angle, equivalent to 27mm in the 35mm film format) to 56mm (mid-telephoto, equivalent to 85mm in the 35mm film format). These lenses will offer outstanding image quality and image-resolving power in an extremely broad range of photographic situations.

Additionally, as part of this roadmap, the compact prime series of XF lenses will have two additions: a standard macro lens and an ultra-wide-angle lens. These complement existing lenses in the XF Series by expanding the situations for suitable lens use, catering to users’ diverse needs.

XF 56mm f/1.2 lens

A mid-telephoto lens to join the new generation of “large-aperture prime lenses” in the XF Series.

XF 30mm f/2.8 R macro lens

A compact macro lens with a standard angle of view. Its compact and lightweight design makes it a perfect walkaround lens, covering a wide range of image-making situations including snapshots, landscapes, portraits, as well as tabletop photography of foods and accessories.

XF 8mm f/3.5 lens

A compact ultra-wide-angle lens that will be the widest X Mount prime lens in the XF Series. Despite the ultra-wide-angle focal length, the lens is compact and lightweight, making it an ideal lens for street photography.

“We listened to consumers’ thoughts, wants, and needs, and responded with a comprehensive set of new lenses that will enhance any Fujifilm photographer’s kit,” said Victor Ha, vice president, Electronic Imaging and Optical Devices Divisions, FUJIFILM North America Corporation. “With our versatile lineup now including 42 lenses, including the three that were just added to the development roadmap, Fujifilm continues to demonstrate its commitment to helping our community find new creative moments through lenses that allow the creator to see things differently.”

XF 30mm f/2.8 R Macro and XF 56mm f/1.2 are expected to be available in late 2022. XF 8mm f/3.5 is expected to be available in early 2023.
