Fujifilm adds 10-24mm Fujinon lens with f/4 aperture throughout entire focal range

fujifilm announces fujinon xf10 24mmf4 r ois ultra wide lens 10 24mm black front

Fujifilm just added a new ultra-wide lens to its X-series lineup, upping the number of lens options to 11. Designed to work with all Fujifilm X-mount interchangeable lens cameras (ILC), the Fujinon XF10-24mmF4 R OIS has a 15-36mm, 35mm-equivalent zoom. Fujifilm’s X-series has some of the best-performing, good-looking ILCs out there, like the X-M1, and having more lens options will only make it more attractive.

Fujifilm says the ultra-wide focal length is ideal for “shooting dynamic, high impact landscapes images with maximum detail from the foreground to far distances.” The optical image stabilized lens has a fixed f/4 aperture throughout the entire range, with outstanding low-light performance, Fujifilm says. “Using precision-made, responsive, and finely-tuned metal aperture and focus rings, the (lens) ensures a superb handling experience that consistently delivers outstanding optical performance throughout its zoom range.”

Other technical specs include: 

  • An optical system that’s newly designed to maximize performance of the X-Trans sensor, using four high-precision aspherical lenses and three extra low dispersion glass lenses.
  • Multi-layer coating (HT-EBC) to minimize ghosting, plus extra newly-developed coating on the reversed side of the front lens to minimize even more ghosting that occurs with deep concave wide-angle lenses.
  • Seven-blade aperture diaphragm to achieve smooth, round bokeh.
  • Macro distance of 24cm (9.4 inches).
  • Greater resolving power at all apertures when used with camera that has a Lens Modulation Optimizer function.
  • A 91.6-degreee horizontal angle of view at wide-angle.
  • Inner focusing system that allows for high-speed autofocusing by moving only the smaller lenses in the middle or rear lens groups.

The lens will list at $1,000, but it won’t go on sale until March 2014.
