SIZE COMPARISON: Fujinon XF70-300mmF4-5.6 vs XF55-200mmF3.5-4.8 vs XF100-400mmF4.5-5.6 vs XC50-230mmF4.5-6.7

One of the most my personal most pleasing surprises of yesterday’s Fujifilm X Summit, was to see the lovely Fujinon XF70-300mmF4-5.6.

It’s compact, it works with both, the 1.4x teleconverter and the 2x teleconverter and it is definitely a lens that I can see becoming a huge hit for Fujifilm.

Fujifilm showed some hands-on images yesterday at the X summit (all visible in our dedicated article), and they also shared some technical sketches.

I couldn’t resit my own curiosity, so I took the technical sketches and used it to compare it to other Fujinon lenses, more specifically to the.

You can see the results above.

Based on the size comparison, I tried to approximately measure the size of the Fujinon XF70-300mm f/4-5.6, and I saw that it is roughly 1.5 cm longer than the Fujinon XF55-200mm f/3.5-4.8.

Hence, according to this calculation, the Fujinon XF70-300mm f/4-5.6 is about 133 mm long.

Also, according calculations made by FR-reader Fujiste, it should have a 72mm filter size.

RUMOR: Fujinon XF10-24mm F4 MK II Coming in October

According to our sources (thanks) the previously rumored Fujinon XF10-24mm F4 MK II will be announced in October.

end of the article…

What… you ask me to add a comment? Well, what can I say.

I own the XF10-24mmF4 and I feel Fuji missed 2 big opportunities: it should have been weather sealed, and it should have had a marked aperture ring.

But while I can understand it’s not weather sealed (the XF10-24 was launched before Fuji even had a weather sealed camera on the market), the lack of markings on the aperture ring is one of those big Fuji mysteries that remains unsolved.

Enough said ;)
