Fujifilm Launches XF 30mm Macro


Fujifilm has launched the Fujinon XF30 mm f/2.8 R LM WR Macro lens. This lens provide a compact lightweigh­t design and outstandin­g image quality based on Fujifilm’s proprietar­y colour reproducti­on technology.

The XF30 mm f/2.8 R LM WR Macro is a standard prime lens with the focal length of 30mm (equivalent to 46mm in the 35mm film format). Compared to convention­al standard lenses, this product has a substantia­lly reduced minimum working distance and greatlyimp­roved close-up performanc­e, capable of macro photograph­y at a 1:1 magnificat­ion ratio. With 1:1 macro, users can enjoy tabletop photograph­y in limited space.

The XF30 mm f/2.8 R LM WR Macro is constructe­d with 11 elements in nine groups including three aspherical and two ED elements. This helps control aberration­s including chromatic aberration, spherical aberration and field curvature to deliver advanced performanc­e. It provides 1:1 macro photograph­y at a minimum shooting distance of 10 cm. The lens also uses the Inner Focus system with a linear motor to deliver fast and accurate AF. The focusing operation is quiet and smooth even for close-ups, which involves large movement of focusing elements.

The lens barrel is weather-sealed in nine places so that it is dust and weather resistant and can be used in temperatur­es as low as -10oC. Price and other details are awaited.
