Fujifilm adds a new telephoto prime lens to their X-system – the Fujinon XF 90mm f/2 R LM WR. The lens has a field of view equivalent to 137 mm for full frame and sports a maximum aperture of f/2,0. Seven rounded aperture blades contribute to render out-of-focus parts in a soft and creamy way.
The lens is weather sealed and also equipped with a newly developed focus motor, called “Quad Linear Motor” by Fujifilm. Linear motors are generally fast, silent and precise, good qualities for autofocus. The quad-motor used here contains four magnets to provide greater torque, which shortens the reactiontime. The minimum focusing distance is 60 cm, so it’s possible to make pretty tight crops.
The optical construction consists of 11 elements in 8 groups. Three of the elements are made of ED-glass (Extra low Dispersion), used to minimize chromatic aberrations.
The Fujinon XF 90mm f/2 R LM WR will be on the market in July for about 950 USD.
