Fujifilm has just announced its new Fujinon XF 80mm f/2.8 R LM OIS WR Macro lens, the first X Series lens to offer 1.0x magnification.
The lens has a focal length equivalent to a 122mm on a 35mm full frame camera and features a design formula that uses 16 elements in 12 groups, including one aspherical lens, one Super ED lens, and three ED lenses.
“As the first in the X Series interchangeable lens series to have a 1.0x magnification factor, the XF 80mm f/2.8 achieves high resolving power and beautiful bokeh, making it a perfect lens for capturing stunning macro images,” Fujifilm says.
The lens uses a Floating Focus System that enhances autofocus while reducing aberration. There’s also Optical Image Stabilization with 5 stops of stabilization for reducing blur from camera shake while you’re shooting handheld.
Other specs and features of the lens include a fluorine coating (for resisting smudges/water/dirt), a weather- and dust-resistant build with 11 points of sealing, the ability to operate in temperatures as low as 14°F/-10°C, and fast and quiet AF with a linear motor.
Here are some official sample photos captured using this lens:
The Fujinon XF 80mm f/2.8 R LM OIS WR will be available starting in November 2017 for $1,200.
