Fujinon GF Medium Format Lenses Roadmap Published

Fujifilm, along with the expansion of its line of medium format cameras (the Fujifilm GFX100 II was recently introduced), will continue to develop a series of optics for these cameras. An updated Fujinon G optics roadmap has been published. It looks like this:

It follows from this that the company will add a telephoto lens with a focal length of 500mm (in full frame equivalent – 396mm). This lens will be compatible with a teleconverter, which will further increase the focal length to 700mm (554mm equivalent). This will provide the ability to capture distant subjects or create unique perspectives not previously possible with Fujifilm’s medium format digital cameras. The source reports that it will be Fujinon 500mm F/5.6.

This lens will potentially be larger than the existing Fujinon GF 250mm F/4. It should be taken into account that this is a fairly large lens:

The second lens expected is a motorized zoom lens that will cover the standard focal length range. It is suitable for both photo and video shooting. In a press release, Fujifilm says that this lens will have motorized control of focus, zoom and aperture. This should allow for smooth performance, exactly the kind that professional-level video shooting requires. Its focal lengths and characteristics have not yet been disclosed.

Both new lenses will belong to the premium segment and will be priced at a high price.

The Fujifilm GFX100 II camera was previously introduced . The device has received a number of advanced functions. It has a wide-angle image sensor that is almost 1.7 times larger than the 35mm image sensors used in full-frame cameras.

The camera received a completely new sensor with a resolution of 102 megapixels and a new generation X-Processor 5 processor. Its goal is to double the signal reading speed compared to the current model. Continuous shooting performance has been increased from the current 5 fps to 8 fps, expanding the Fujifilm GFX100 II’s applications in a variety of genres, including fashion photography, advertising, landscape photography, sports and photojournalism.
