Fujifilm is a world-class camera brand that makes some of the most stunning cameras and lenses. Following the suit, just recently, Fujifilm has added two new lenses in the FUJINON series. Along with that, they have also launched a new X-H2S Mirrorless Digital Camera. The three products that we are going to cover today are:
- X-H2S Mirrorless Digital Camera
- FUJINON XF18-120mmF4 LM PZ WR Lens
- FUJINON XF150-600mmF5.6-8 R LM OIS WR Lens
Lenses are not the only thing Fujifilm has announced, the brand has also announced X-H2S Mirrorless Digital Camera. Their X series of mirrorless cameras is already a flagship series so this new camera has a lot of great and powerful features.
This new camera has an all-new 26.16MP X-TransTM CMOS 5 HS imaging sensor which is more powerful than its predecessor. On top of that, there is also a new processor on the camera: X-Processor 5. The new processor unlocks a wide range of powerful features in both the photo and video departments of the camera.
The autofocus(AF) performance is significantly better on this one. Then the video performance is also enhanced. Other than that, it has advanced subject tracking and the design is made for a better recording experience.
There are also some accessories that users can buy with this new camera including a Vertical battery grip (VG-XH), File transmitter (FT-XH), Cooling fan (FAN-001), and Cover kit (CVR-XH).
The new Fujifilm X-H2S is said to arrive in the markets starting this July and the price for the camera is going to be USD 2,499.
The first one on the list is the new FUJINON XF18-120mmF4 LM PZ WR Lens. This is a hybrid lens for broadcast, video, and photo. If we talk about the focal length of the lens then it has a broad range from wide-angle 18mm to telephoto 120mm. This is equivalent to 27mm – 183mm in the 35mm film format.
Now, it has 15 lens elements in 12 groups. Then the focus element is placed in a way that it provides Fast and highly accurate autofocus (AF). The lens also has a powerful 6.7x power zoom. It works as a wide-angle and telephoto lens and the best thing is that it provides a constant maximum aperture of F4.0 across the entire focal range.
This is of course a powerful lens that can be used in harsh conditions as its lens barrel is sealed at 13 points. So you get best-in-class weather and dust resistance. On top of that, it also works at temperatures as low as 14 degrees Fahrenheit.
If we talk about the pricing of the lens, then the new FUJINON XF18-120mmF4 LM PZ WR Lens is priced at USD 899 and will be available in September.
The new FUJINON XF150-600mmF5.6-8 R LM OIS WR Lens is a super-telephoto zoom lens from Fujifilm. The key highlight of the lens is that it is really lightweight and has a fast focus speed.
This new lens is going to be great for all the wildlife photographers and people who just want to capture a scenery with extreme zoom.
The new lens from Fujifilm is compatible with FUJIFILM XF2X TC WR and XF1.4X TC WR. And it can provide the following focal lengths with these two:
- XF2X TC WR – 300mm to 1200mm (35mm equivalent focal lengths of 457mm – 1828mm
- XF1.4 TC WR – 210mm to 900mm (35mm equivalent focal lengths of 315mm – 1350mm
Now, the key highlight of the lens is its weight, it weighs around 3.5 pounds which is around 1605 grams, and given this is a telephoto lens with a superzoom, the lens is indeed lightweight which makes it easy to maneuver.
If we talk about the pricing of the lens, then the new FUJINON XF150-600mmF5.6-8 R LM OIS WR Lens will be priced at USD 1,999 and will be available starting this July.
These are just some great announcements from Fujifilm for all the camera lovers out there.
