Fuji Releases New Lens Roadmap for X-Series

Fuji X-T1

Fuji has released a new lens roadmap for its X-Series mirrorless cameras, which include the recent X-T1 and X-E2 cameras.

The updated roadmap includes a new XF90mm f/2.oR lens slated for the first half of 2015. The next available lens though is the XF 50-140mm f/2.8R OIS WR lens, which will be the second weather resistant lens designed with the X-T1 in mind.

The previously announced “ultra-wide angle lens” will be the XF 16mm f/1.4R expected mid-2015 and the XF 16-55mm f/2.8 WR lens will move to Spring 2015. A super tele-photo lens will move to Winter 2015 on the roadmap.

Check out the visual roadmap below.

    One can only hope that sony might one day take a leaf form Fuji’s book and start providing some more choice in their lenses for the Sony A7R . Well done Fuji . Now please produce a Full Frame XT and I will love you forever more !

    My Fuji XS1, and its predecessor, consistently took better pictures than my friends Nikon dslr. Fuji cameras are consistly high quality, but they don’t get much street cred.

    On the this latest release chart why has the OIS designation been dropped from the XF 16-55mm f2.8 R WR to be released in 2015?

      I posted the same question on DP Review, and we concluded that either:
      1. It was a typo, or
      2. The lens is intended for a camera with IBIS. With the push back in the date for the release of the lens, it would argue to be kit lens for the X Pro2, possibly due out in the first quarter 2015.

      Just a few more weeks until Photokina 2014. Should be interesting!

        Thank you for the reply to my question.
        If the second option is on the cards then I suppose a new generation larger surface area sensor could be contemplated in order to accommodate a sensor based stabilisation system and still produce an APS-C size final image.
        For the time being I’m inclined to run with the typo option.
        My own view is that all incremental upgrades being released over the next year or two are in preparation for an APS-C size organic film sensor based model with interchangeable lenses. Once perfected an APS-C organic film sensor would yield images with a theoretical resolution surpassing the produced by most existing lenses and would also render the need to consider a FF sensor model obsolete.

    Fuji – the only CFC manufacturer to produce a decent crop of lenses! Here there is top quality, choice and a company that actually listens to their customers! Sony could learn from Fuji.
