Fujinon XF 18-135 mm F3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR – dust-and splash-proof lens, the first in the line XF


    Fujifilm launches the first dust-splash-XF-lens FUJINON XF 18-135 mm F3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR

    Fujifilm Corporation announced the release of a new zoom lens XF18-135mm. The model will be available in July 2014.

    As the latest addition to the range of professional lenses for X-series cameras, this lens covers a wide range of focal lengths – 27 mm (wide angle) to 206 mm (telephoto) * 1. It is equipped with the most advanced in the world of image stabilization compensates for up to 5-speed shutter * 2. Lens boasts a dust-drip design with additional sealing in more than 20 locations, which provides protection against weathering.

    * 1 equivalent of 35 mm
    * 2 Complies with CIPA (Camera Imaging Products Association)

    1. Product Features

    (1) A wide range of focal lengths – 27 mm (wide angle) to 206 mm (telephoto) * 1

    • With the support of popular field angles XF18-135mm lens for shooting a wide variety of scenes and subjects. This can include the wide angle with excellent prospects for the transfer, often used for landscapes and architectural shots (equivalent to 27 mm), the normal field of view, allowing to capture the scene such as the human eye sees it (equivalent to 35 mm, 40 mm, 50 mm) telephoto and allows you to shoot portraits and sports scene from a distance (equivalent to 85 mm, 135 mm, 200 mm) due to a 7.5-fold-zoom.

    • In order to achieve high resolution and contrast throughout the focal length range in this high-performance lens uses four aspherical lenses and two lens with ultra-low dispersion. On the surface coated lenses of the original multi-layer coating Fujinon HT-EBC, having a high permeability (99.8%) and low reflectivity (0.2%). It minimizes glare and rainbow halos, which often appear in backlit. A wide range of focal lengths allows more freedom in the construction of the composition and selection of camera angles.

    * 1 equivalent with 35mm

    (2) Quick AF (max. 0.1) * 2, and silent operation

    • The model XF 18-135 mm F3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR uses an internal focusing mechanism * 3, providing fast autofocus. In this mechanism applied lightweight lens and a linear motor. When installing this lens on one of the X-series cameras * 4 supporting the phase-detection autofocus with user gets even more high-quality images and fast autofocus.
    • Linear motor, which directly controls the focusing objective lens is very quiet, you can shoot video virtually silent.

    * 2 Complies with guidelines CIPA, measurement of internal state in high-performance mode, according to Fujifilm on June 2014
    * 3 method in which smaller lenses are moved to the middle or end , while the front group, consisting of large-sized lens is fixed
    * 4 As of June 2014, “FUJIFILM X-T1” and “FUJIFILM X-E2”
    * 5 To ensure correct autofocus, download and install the latest firmware for the camera.
    You need to download the firmware for the camera can be downloaded at this address:

    (3) The world’s most advanced image stabilization system

    • To achieve image stabilization compensates for up to 5-speed shutter, Fujinon engineers have improved the system’s ability to detect motion in the low frequency range, and developed an algorithm to determine the exact blurs based on the received signal. Efficiency correction at a slow shutter speed has been doubled. This simplifies shooting without a tripod and other accessories.
    • New high-precision crystal oscillator with a gyro sensor capable of detecting motion in the frequency range from high to low.

    (4) Dust-proof and weather-resistant design

    • Dust-proof and weather-resistant design with sealing in more than 20 locations in the lens barrel makes it resistant to typical atmospheric changes in the natural environment, such as a sudden rain, dust, or water spray.
    • To improve the tactile feel when adjusting the zoom , vent was moved to the inside of the base of the lens barrel. This arrangement effectively prevents the lens dust and moisture, eliminating the hassle.
    • The lens is perfect for use with the camera Fujifilm X-T1 and intended for her vertical grip VG-XT1, which also have a dustproof and weatherproof enclosures .

    (5) Lightweight and compact design for maximum portability

    • XF18-135mm lens offers a wide range of focal lengths, improved image stabilization, as well as protection against dust and weatherproof – all in a compact package.
    • When installing the lens on the camera X-T1 their total weight is just 930 This combination offers the photographer greater flexibility and tremendous opportunities for creativity.
    • Use 4 aspherical lenses, each of which can replace several conventional spherical lenses, allowed for very short optical path. Small size, good balance of mass and length of the lens ensures a comfortable shooting.
