Fujifilm updated the lens roadmap… but nothing new for FR-readers ;-)

 photo pic_01_zps48f6e2df.jpg

Fujifilm just updated the roadmap here. Nothing really new for Fujirumors readers. As rumored moths ago, there will be a 16mm f/1.4 and a 90mm f/2. The Super-Telephoto should be a 120-400, according to new sources. I’ve added the rumored roadmap at the bottom. Also updated, the right&wrong rumor list in 2014 and the reliability rating.

So what’s new? Well, Fuji gave us an expected availability for the lenses and it seems that the new primes (90 and 16) won’t be weather resistant.

“FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Shigehiro Nakajima) is pleased to release an updated road map for X mount interchangeable lenses.

A large-diameter medium telephoto lens (the XF90mmF2 R) features for the first time on the development road map for end 2015. The next available lens will be the XF50-140mm F2.8 R LM OIS WR. Following on from the XF18-135mm lens, this will be Fujifilm’s second weather resistant lens designed to partner its X-T1 camera.

Other updates to the road map include the previously announced “Ultra-wide angle lens” being confirmed as the “XF16mmF1.4 R” with a guide launch date of mid 2015. And the planned launch of the XF16-55mmF2.8 R WR lens moving to Spring 2015 and the Super Tele-Photo Zoom lens to Winter 2015.

Highly regarded for their outstanding image quality, resolution and well-built bodies, the unique X mount lens range now includes super-wide angle to super-telephoto range lenses and a large-diameter lens with rich bokeh and high resolution.”

The 18-135 is coming. It’s already available in Asia, in some stores in Europe and expected to come in USA by the end of this month.

In the meantime, X-guru Rico was in Berlin with a production version of the first weather resistant lens of Fujifilm and he shared some full size samples on his Flickr here. All the night shots were taken handheld using the 5 stop OIS at shutter speeds between 1/4s and 1/15s…. impressive results! You can leave your tripod at home now ;-).

The X-T1 with the new weather resistant lens XF 18-135 will cost €1699 in Europe, which makes it €100 more expensive than the X-T1+18-55 kit. That’s at least the price at fotohanskeuzekamp (Netherland). This store also has some 18-135 in stock already
