Fujifilm also introduced the new rugged and waterproof FinePix XP90, perfect for capturing amazing images everywhere, from underwater to mountain tops.

    FUJINON XF100-400mmF4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR

    The new FUJINON XF100-400mmF4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR is a weather-sealed, superior telephoto lens that gives photographers exceptionally sharp images with a 152mm-609mm equivalent in 35mm format. The high-performance XF100-400mmF4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR has an optical construction of 21 elements in 14 groups, and includes five ED lenses and one Super ED lens to help reduce chromatic aberration that often occurs in telephoto lenses. As a result, it delivers the highest image quality in its class.

    The XF100-400mmF4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR has been designed for handheld shooting with a 5.0-stop image stabilization system and twin linear motors for speedy autofocus that makes it perfect for shooting fast-moving subjects. The lens is also water and dust resistant and can operate in temperatures as low as 14°F, making it suitable for use in a wide range of outdoor shooting conditions. A fluorine coating has also been applied to the front lens element to repel water and dirt, further improving the toughness and functionality of the lens.

    FUJINON XF100-400mmF4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR key features:

    • Uses 21 elements in 14 groups, and 5 extra-low dispersion elements and 1 super extra low dispersion elements

    FUJIFILM Corporation is proud to announce that a new FUJINON XF100-400mmF4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR will be added to the X-Series mirrorless camera line-up in February 2016. With its introduction, the premium mirrorless X-Series range now expands to offer a super telephoto lens.

    The FUJINON XF 100-400mm F4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR is a super telephoto zoom lens that covers a 35mm focal length equivalent of 152-609mm. The high performance optical construction of 21 elements in 14 groups includes five ED lenses and one Super ED lens to help reduce chromatic aberration that often occurs in telephoto lenses. As a result, it delivers the highest image quality in its class. The lens has been designed for handheld shooting with a 5.0-stop* image stabilization system and weighs less than 1.4kg. The linear motor realizes fast autofocusing and makes it perfect for shooting fast-moving subjects including aircraft and motorsports. The lens is also both water and dust resistant and can operate in temperatures as low as -10°C, so it is suitable for use in a wide range of outdoor shooting conditions. A fluorine coating has also been applied to the front lens element to repel water and dirt, further improving the toughness of the lens.

    Reduced chromatic aberration to help deliver high resolution images

    • The optical construction of 21 elements in 14 groups, which includes five ED lenses and a Super ED lens, delivers results comparable to a fluorite lens, and by reducing axial chromatic aberration it produces images full of detail.
    • The maximum magnification is 0.19x, enabling users to shoot telephoto macro images.

    Class-leading 5.0-stop image stabilization

    A 5.0-stop image stabilization system – the most powerful in any super telephoto zoom lens – produces blur-free results even at the maximum telephoto setting of 609mm (35mm equivalent). Also, if panning is detected, the lens automatically switches camera shake correction to the vertical plane only.

    Fast and quiet AF thanks to twin linear motors

    Twin linear motors are used to deliver fast focusing on moving subjects. The motors are so quiet that the lens is ideal for shooting live music performances and theatre productions.

    Even faster AF shooting is possible with the focus limiter function, which limits the close focusing point to 5m.

    Compact and lightweight design

    The FUJINON XF100-400mmF4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR has a weight of less than 1.4kg which reduces the strain of shooting handheld substantially. When mounted to the FUJIFILM X-T1 body, the combined weight is below 2kg. It enhances user mobility. In addition, the weight distribution of the lens when attached to a body makes it feel lighter than it really is.

    Water/dust resistance, -10°C low-temperature operation and fluorine coating

    • The lens features 13 water and dust resistant seals at 12 points, allowing you to shoot with confidence in tough outdoor environments.
    • The fluorine coating applied to the front lens element is water repellent and it is less susceptible to smudges and can easily be cleaned.

    Lens hood with a polarising filter window and lock mechanism

    • The lens hood features a sliding window so a polarising filter can still be accessed even when the hood is in place.
    • The hood also features a locking mechanism to keep it securely attached to the lens.

    Compatible with the 1.4x Tele converter

    The lens offers compatibility with the XF1.4X TC WR tele converter. When attached, it becomes a 140-560mm F6.3-8 or 213-853mm (35mm equivalent). Phase detection AF shooting remains possible, even at F8.

    Accessories

    A lens plate (MLP-75XF) compatible with ARCA SWISS tripods is available as an optional extra. This plate is also compatible with the XF50-140mm F2.8 R LM OIS WR.

    Lenses like this generally give up a bit in the resolution department, but the Fuji 100-400mm produces sharp images at all focal lengths, even wide open. While there’s a bit of softness towards infinity wide open, even this disappears just one stop down. Add in outstanding bokeh and relatively low aberrations in other departments and you get a truly excellent zoom lens.

  • Image quality is commendably fantastic throughout the zoom range both at the centre and edges of the frame, with excellent sharpness at almost all available apertures, while the nine-blade iris diaphragm achieves some lovely bokeh effects. Vignetting is practically a non-issue at either end of the zoom range, and chromatic aberrations are only noticeable by their almost complete absence.

    Sharpness is excellent at the fastest aperture and throughout the entire zoom range.
