FUJIFILM ANNOUNCES THE ULTRA-WIDE XF10-24mmF4 R OIS LENS

New XF10-24mmF4 R OIS offers exceptional image quality for

premium X-Series digital cameras

 

Valhalla, N.Y., December 18, 2013 FUJIFILM North America Corporation today announced the new FUJINON XF10-24mmF4 R OIS, an ultra-wide 2.4x zoom lens with a 15-36mm equivalent that fits all FUJIFILM X-Series interchangeable lens cameras. With the introduction of the new XF10-24mmF4 R OIS, FUJIFILM now offers focal length options ranging from 15mm to 350mm (in 35mm equivalent).

 

The FUJINON XF10-24mmF4 R OIS features ultra-wide focal length capabilities that make it the perfect choice for shooting dynamic, high impact landscapes images with maximum detail from the foreground to far distances. With a maximum F4 aperture fixed through the focal range, the XF10-24mmF4 R OIS also provides outstanding low light image quality for stunning indoor pictures. Using precision-made, responsive, and finely-tuned metal aperture and focus rings, the XF10-24mmF4 R OIS ensures a superb handling experience that consistently delivers outstanding optical performance throughout its zoom range.

  • FUJIFILM X-Mount is compatible with all FUJIFILM interchangeable system cameras

  • Newly designed optical system uses 4 high-precision aspherical lenses and 4 extra low dispersion glass lenses which maximize performance of the FUJFILM X-Trans sensor
  • HT-EBC*1 multi-layer coating to minimize ghosting
  • Additional newly-developed coating added to the reverse side of the front lens to further reduce the ghosting that typically occurs when using deep concave lenses
  • Enhanced resolving power at all apertures when used with an X-series camera*2 that incorporates a Lens Modulation Optimizer (LMO) function

  • Macro minimum working distance of 24cm
