FUJIFILM Corporation is proud to announce that a new FUJINON XF35mmF2 R WR lens will be added to its premium mirrorless X-Series interchangeable lens camera line-up in November 2015. The new 35mm lens offers a focal length equivalent to 53mm1, its angle of view is similar to that of the human eye, and it has a maximum aperture of F2.0

The FUJINON XF35mmF2 R WR is a standard focal length prime lens which delivers sharp images with rich bokeh. The optical construction of 9 elements in 6 groups including two aspherical elements achieves the perfect balance of high image quality and compact size. The lightweight is weather and dust-resistant and can work in temperatures as low as -10C. The XF35mmF2.0 features the smallest diameter in the XF lens line-up and thanks to the inner focus system and stepping motor, it achieves an autofocus time of just 0.08 sec2.

This lens is very versatile and can be used for a wide variety of scenes and applications.

Main Features

Sharp image quality

Lens construction of 9 elements in 6 groups delivers sharp, high quality images, even at the widest aperture of F2.0.

Compact and discrete

Two aspherical lenses are used to ensure a small and compact exterior. At just 45.9mm in length and with a diameter of 60mm, the slim and stylish design allows comfortable operation and draws minimum attention to the photographer, making it the perfect lens for portrait, street or reportage photography.

Fastest autofocus speed of 0.08 sec2

An inner focusing system, which moves the small and lightweight lens elements, is combined with a stepping motor to produce quiet, accurate and fast autofocus - a must for all snap shooters that need to capture a spontaneous moment.

All metal exterior, weather and dust-resistant and -10C low-temperature operation

The all-metal construction of the lens exterior ensures it is durable enough for a wide variety of shooting situations. The fine texture of the metal parts further enhance the shooting experience and ensure it can be operated easily and accurately with wet or gloved hands. The lens features a weather- and dust-resistant structure with eight seals on the lens barrel keeping the lens protected from rain, dust and splashes of water when shooting outdoors. It can also work in temperatures as low as -10.

Two types of lens hood

Lens hoods block unnecessary light from entering the lens to maximise optical performance. There are two types of lens hood available for the XF35mmF2 R WR. A lightweight and compact circular lens hood is included with it. And a classical and stylish metal hood LH-XF35-2 is available for purchase as an optional accessory. Both lens hoods allow the front lens cap to be used while attached.
