A New Take on a Familiar, Popular Focal Length
TOKYO, April 15, 2021 — FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Kenji Sukeno) is pleased to announce the introduction of the FUJINON XF18mmF1.4 R LM WR lens (XF18mmF1.4), set to be released in May 2021. Having a 35mm equivalent focal length of 27mm and a maximum aperture of F1.4, it is the 39th lens in Fujifilm’s broad line of interchangeable lenses, made exclusively for its family of X Series mirrorless digital cameras.
Measuring 7.56cm (2.98in) in length and weighing just 370g (0.81lb), the XF18mmF1.4 has a filter size of 62mm and a minimum focusing distance of 20cm (7.9in). This makes it an ideal lens for everything from landscapes and cityscapes to portraits and weddings. Added flexibility in dimly lit environments is also provided through the lens’s wide F1.4 aperture, which also produces incredibly smooth bokeh in an image’s out-of-focus areas.
Keeping to the X Series philosophy of creating lightweight and compact imaging solutions that produce incredible image quality, the XF18mmF1.4 provides incredible optical performance without being heavy or bulky. Compared with other lenses that have a similar angle of view and aperture, these differences are sure to make the XF18mmF1.4 an easy choice among many imaging professionals for years to come.
