Fujifilm has just announced two new lenses for its two camera systems. The first is the 16-80mm f/4 R OIS WR, a versatile zoom for Fujifilm’s APS-C X-mount cameras. The second lens is the GF 50mm f/3.5 R LM WR, a compact prime designed for the medium format G-mount GFX system. Let’s check out more details and specs.

Fujifilm XF 16-80mm f/4 R OIS WR

The Fujifilm XF 16-80mm f/4 R OIS WR is designed to cover various shooting situations. It’s designed for APS-C cameras, so it offers a 24-120mm-equivalent focal length range with constant f/4 maximum aperture.

When it comes to the lens’ optical design, it features three aspherical elements and one ED aspherical element. This helps to minimize aberrations and produce high sharpness and clarity. The lens also packs a quick and quiet AF system, plus a six stop-effective image stabilization system. And last but not least, this lens is fully weather-sealed, which adds to its versatility as it allows you to shoot even in harsh weather conditions.

Fujifilm GF 50mm f/3.5 R LM WR

The GF 50mm f/3.5 R LM WR is a compact and tiny prime designed for the medium format G-mount GFX system. Used with Fujifilm’s medium format cameras, it provides a 40mm-equivalent focal length.

The lens features one aspherical element to help control the distortion and spherical aberrations. There’s also a linear AF motor for quick and quiet focusing performance and a manual aperture ring. Just like the new zoom lens, this one is also dust-, freeze-, and weather-resistant.

    I could definitely use this 16-80 WR. I loved my 18-55 kit lens till it dropped in some water real fast and I had an aquarium in my lens. =-(
