    The XF lens line-up expands with a new XF80mm macro lens

    Fujifilm announces the FUJINON XF80mmF2.8 LM OIS WR Macro, the first 1.0x magnification mid-telephoto macro lens for the X Series range. The lens supports hand-held shooting thanks to a powerful image stabilizer and ultra-lightweight design, which perfectly complements FUJIFILM X Series mirrorless cameras

    FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Kenji Sukeno) has announced that it will release the new FUJINON XF80mm F2.8 R LM OIS WR Macro Lens, in November 2017. The introduction of this lens will add to the X Series line-up of interchangeable lenses which are renowned for their outstanding image quality. This lens features a focal length equivalent to 122mm (on a 35mm format), a maximum aperture of F2.8, and 1.0x magnification factor, a first in the X Series interchangeable lens range. By achieving high resolving power at the focus point and beautiful bokeh, this lens is optimal for shooting flowers and nature photos. Combine this lens with Fujifilm’s unique Film Simulation such as Velvia, for truly stunning close up images.

    The FUJINON XF80mm F2.8 R LM OIS WR Macro Lens is a mid-telephoto macro lens that delivers the very best results from Fujifilm's unique X-TRANS CMOS sensor. With an optical construction of 16 elements in 12 groups, including one aspherical lens, one Super ED lens, and three ED lenses, along with a Floating Focus System*, this lens is capable of achieving high-quality macro shooting from close-up too far away.

    This lens supports hand-held shooting thanks to Optical Image Stabilizer system suppressing shift shake**. The lens also provides a fast and silent Auto Focus system by adopting linear motors. The exterior design is luxurious yet robust, so you can get premium feel. The aperture and focusing rings have been designed to be comfortable and easy to use. The lens is also weather 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.

    Fujifilm has today also unveiled the latest development roadmap for the X Mount Lenses. With this roadmap, details of a Ultra Wide Angle Zoom Lens and a Telephoto Prime Lens are unveiled. Fujifilm will continue to expand the lens line-up from ultra-wide to telephoto to support a wide range of photography styles and requirements.

    Product features

    High resolving power and beautiful bokeh

    An optical construction of 16 elements in 12 groups, including one aspherical lens, one Super ED lens, and three ED lenses has been adopted. Chromatic aberrations are suppressed by arranging the ED lenses in a well-balanced position and spherical aberrations are suppressed thanks to the aspherical lens, securing high resolution performance.

    Beautiful macro image thanks to newly adopted AF system

    Adopts Floating Focus System, divides focus lens group into “Front Focus Group” and “Rear Focus Group”, and drives them depending on the shooting distance with high accuracy. This system leads to high resolution when shooting macro, where the aberrations become easily noticeable.

    A newly developed “Ball Slide System” controls lens movement by arranging ceramic balls along the guide rail. This system makes it possible to achieve high image quality from the center to the edge by suppressing any inclination of the two focus lens groups and keep its clearance with high accuracy.

    The focus lens groups move within the lens barrel meaning that the length of the lens does not change. Therefore there is no need to worry about accidentally touching the object you are shooting.

    OIS suppressing Shift Shake

    The lens has adopted the Optical Image Stabilization system to suppress shift shake, which can have a larger impact when shooting macro. Angle shake and shift shake is suppressed by using a gyro sensor and an acceleration sensor with high accuracy, which achieves 5-stop image stabilization (CIPA guidelines).

    Fast and quiet AF

    The focus lens is driven by a linear motor which is both quiet and quick, achieving fast and silent AF.

    Weather and Dust resistant, -10°C low-temperature operation with fluorine coating

    The lens features 11 weather and dust resistant seals, allowing you to shoot with confidence in tough outdoor environments. The fluorine coating, which has been applied to front lens elements, is water Repellent, less susceptible to smudges and is easily cleaned.

    Compatible with the 1.4x and 2.0x Teleconverter

    The lens offers compatibility with the 1.4x Teleconverter (XF1.4X TC WR) and 2.0x Teleconverter

    (XF2X TC WR), so it can be used as telephoto macro lens.

    • With 1.4x Teleconverter : 112mmF4  (equivalent to 171mm in the 35mm format)
    • With 2.0x Teleconverter : 160mmF5.6  (equivalent to 244mm in the 35mm format)

    One area where the lens certainly meets expectations is in image sharpness. The lens is extremely sharp right from maximum aperture, across the entire frame, and stopping down just a bit brings everything just a tick sharper. This is true both in the macro range and towards infinity, though it may be just slightly lower resolving at those longer focus distances. With that said, you will not want for sharpness anywhere in the range. There’s really not much more to be said here, as there’s very little to nitpick.
