Fujifilm launches three prime lenses to accompany the X-Pro 1

lensesAlong with the X-Pro 1, Fujifilm is also showing off its new XF lenses to complement its first compact ICL camera. At launch, three Fujinon prime lenses will be available: the XF 18mm F2 R (27mm equivalent), the XF 35mm F1.4 R (53mm equivalent), and the XF60mm F2.4 R Macro (90mm equivalent).

All three create an ideal bokeh affect and feature an exposure setting system in ⅓ step increments. We were told each lens would cost $600, although the 18mm and the 35mm were leaked as $500 by Amazon.

In addition to a new camera and accompanying new lenses, Fujifilm is always debuting its X-Mount. This mechanism was designed to take advantage of the mirrorless body, keeping the lens as close to the sensor as possible.

Fujifilm revealed that more X-friendly glass will launch this year: a telephoto 60mm/F2.4 macro lens, a standard 35mm/F1.4 lens, and a wide 18mm/F2 lens. And more are on the way come 2013–leading us to believe the X-Pro 1 may have a successor in the (relatively) near future.

We we also told that Fujifilm will release an M-Mount so that Leica lenses can be used with its new camera.
