Fujifilm goes long with Fujinon XF 200mm F2 lens and teleconverter kit
Fujifilm has announced its Fujinon XF 200mm F2 R LM OIS WR telephoto lens, which will be bundled with a matching 1.4x teleconverter. The lens has a 'matte silver' magnesium alloy body with an eye-catching green hood and is sealed against dust and moisture. The 200mm F2 has a total of 19 elements, including one Super ED and two ED elements, and the front glass has a fluorine coating to keep away fingerprints and water. Linear motors keep focus quick and quiet and the image stabilizer reduces shake by up to five stops, according to Fujifilm.
The XF 1.4X TC F2 WR teleconverter boosts the focal length of the lens to 280mm, with the maximum aperture rising a stop to F2.8. As with the lens, the teleconverter is weather-sealed.
The lens and teleconverter kit will be available in late October for just under $6000.

The XF200mmF2 R LM OIS WR Telephoto Lens is made of 19 elements in 14 groups, including one large-diameter super ED lens element and two large-diameter ED lens elements to minimize chromatic aberration. High-precision polishing technology, developed for broadcast lenses, was applied to the large-diameter lens to achieve outstanding image-resolving performance and beautiful bokeh. The lens also features a new Focus Preset function that instantaneously changes the focus to a preset position, enabling photographers to capture the main subject with ease, and without having to make focal readjustments.

In addition, the lens offers 5-stop image stabilization performance that recognizes shooting conditions and automatically applies optimum image stabilization control. With magnesium alloy construction, the lens is lightweight yet robust, and is sealed at 17 points and designed to be weather and dust-resistant, and operates in temperatures as low as 14°F/-10°C.
