Yesterday Fuji updated their XF and GF lens roadmap with several new lenses - here are the first pictures of the new lenses that are expected to tart shipping in 2018:

Ultra Wide Angle Zoom Lens “Fujinon XF 8-16mm f/2.8 R LM WR”
“XF8-16mmF2.8 R LM WR” is an ultra-wide angle zoom lens with a focal length equivalent to 12-24mm (on a 35mm format) and maximum F2.8 aperture. It is a lens most suited to shooting dynamic landscapes, night views and architecture. With the “XF16-55mmF2.8 R LM WR” and “XF50-140mmF2.8 R LM OIS WR”, Fujifilm’s XF lenses will cover F2.8 across the entire zoom range of Wide/Standard/Telephoto shooting areas.

Telephoto Prime Lens “Fujinon XF 200mm f/2 R LM OIS WR”
“XF200mmF2 R LM OIS WR” is a telephoto prime lens with a focal length equivalent to 305mm (on a 35mm format) and maximum bright F2.0 aperture. It is a lens most suited to shooting sports, nature, or wild-birds. Both the existing “FUJINON Teleconverter XF1.4X TC WR” and “FUJINON Teleconverter XF2.0X TC WR” are compatible, so it can be used as an ultra-telephoto lens.

Telephoto Prime Lens “Fujinon GF 250mm f/4 R LM OIS WR”
“GF250mmF4 R LM OIS WR” is a telephoto prime lens with a focal length equivalent to 198mm (on a 35mm format) and maximum F4 aperture, enabling a beautiful bokeh effect for shooting portrait and landscapes images.

Tele Converter “GF1.4X TC WR” (pictured above)
The “GF1.4X TC WR” is a high-performance teleconverter capable of multiplying the focal length by 1.4x. Compatible with “GF250mmF4 R LM OIS WR”, its focal length will be 350mm (equivalent to 277mm on a 35mm format).

  • Neopulse

    Insane lens releases. Almost makes me regret having switched to Sony

  • Eno

    WOW, very nice lenses!

  • EcoR1

    ”lens most suited to shooting sports, nature, or wild-birds”

    200mm lens used in aps-c format is a bit short for birding.
    I also wonder how much the lens will be. Is 5000€ enough?

    • If you pair it with the TCs, it should be fine. I guess this is exactly why they decided to go with f/2 instead of f/2.8.

    • SteB1

      Only for very tame wild birds.

  • TurtleCat

    Huge lenses on a semi-ergonomic camera platform. I like the idea but I think more people will be disappointed in the handling than they suspect. Even with the battery grip on the X-T2 it’s just nowhere near as nice as a D500 and telephoto. Both in feel, button access, and also focus ability.
