Well, it seems to be a moment for lenses, huh? After Fuji’s two new lenses with the Fuji X-H2S announcement, Sigma’s new lens and Sony’s three new APS-C lenses, Fuji’s added three more to the X mount lens roadmap. The three new lenses are the Fujifilm XF 56mm f/1.2, the XF 30mm f/2.8 R Macro and the XF 8mm f/3.5. All three of them sound like they’ll potentially be a lot of fun to play with.
Fujifilm says that they’ve been expanding the lineup of XF lenses to “broaden the appeal of premium image quality and advanced mobility made possible by the X Mount system”. This basically means that they know they’re lacking in a couple of areas and now they’re trying to make up for it. Of course, that’s not a bad thing. The more the merrier, I say, when it comes to lenses!
