The XF200mmF2 R LM OIS WR is the first super-fast telephoto lens in the XF lens lineup, offering a fast maximum f-stop of 2.0 and a focal length equivalent to 305mm in 35mm film format. Taking advantage of technologies synonymous with FUJINON lenses, this new telephoto lens boasts exceptional image clarity with the ability to produce beautiful bokeh, making it the perfect choice for shooting sports and wildlife.
The XF200mmF2 R LM OIS WR lens will be available as a kit, paired with the high performance FUJINON XF1.4X F2 TC WR teleconverter, which extends the focal length of the lens by 1.4 times. The teleconverter allows the lens to cover a focal length equivalent to 427mm at F2.8.
The 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, has been used to prepare the large-diameter lens elements to achieve outstanding image-resolving performance and creamy bokeh. This element is produced with an accuracy of less than 0.1μm High-speed AF is made possible thanks to the lightweight focus lens group and the use of linear motors.
The lens offers 5.0-stop image stabilization performance in accordance with CIPA. The lens recognizes shooting conditions, e.g. panning or on tripod, and automatically applies optimum image stabilization control.

The lens uses linear motors to achieve fast, silent, and high-precision AF performance.
There is also a new mechanism that fixes the focus motor group when the camera is not in use, which reduces any vibrations that may occur from the linear motors’ magnets being disengaged.
The lens is lightweight yet robust, thanks to its magnesium alloy construction. The barrel is sealed at 17 places to make the lens resistant to dust, moisture, and low temperatures down to -10 degrees Celsius. The front lens element is coated with fluorine to repel water and dirt, adding extra durability so that the lens can be used outdoors with peace of mind. The matte silver color reduces the risk of the lens overheating under intense summer temperatures. The paintwork is designed to diffuse light which prevents the lens from generating strong light reflections.
The tripod mount features an Arca-Swiss compatible dovetail groove and also supports both 1/4-inch and 3/8-inch tripod screws.
This high-performance teleconverter extends the focal length by 1.4 times while controlling aberrations when used wide open at an aperture of F2.0. When combined with the XF200mmF2 R LM OIS WR, the teleconverter provides the focal length equivalent to 427mm in the 35mm film format.
Also simultaneously released will be the PRF-105 protective filter and the FLCP-105 front lens cap.
*1 The camera body’s firmware must be updated to activate the Focus Preset function and Focus Control button. Updated firmware is due to be released at the same time as the lens.
