Fujifilm's XF90mm has a maximum aperture of f2 and is weather-resistant too!
Available from July, Fujifilm has released a mid-telephoto for its X-Series cameras, the Fujinon XF 90mm F2 R LM WR, which is roughly equivalent to a 135mm full frame lens. The lens weighs 540 grams, focuses down to 60 cm, and incorporates a newly developed Quad Linear Motor that delivers fast, quiet, accurate autofocus.
The XF 90mm also features a weather and dust resistant structure with seven seals on the lens barrel that protect it from rain, dust and splashes of water when shooting outdoors. The lens can also tolerate temperatures as low as -10C (but we are guessing it will go a lot lower than this).
Maximum aperture is f2.0 and optical construction comprises 11 elements in eight groups (including three ED glass elements). The bokeh, we are told, is beautiful and ideal for portraiture. We're looking forward to reviewing one soon!
