Fujinon XC 15-45
what we have for you today is the close estimated size (not 100%, but very close) of the Fujinon XC15-45mm F3.5-5.6 Power Zoom, Fujifilm’s most compact zoom lens that will be announced on January 31, along with the Fujifilm X-A5.
The size of 16-50 and 18 on X-A3 are made using camerasize.com. FujiRumors just added an empty X-A3 body, and added a line with the size of the XC15-45.
As you can see, the XC 15-45 will be much closer in size to the pancake XF18mmF2 than to the Fujinon XC16-50. I’d say it will have roughly the size of the Fujinon XF35mmF2 WR. Only the XF18mmF2 and the XF27mmF2.8 will be smaller in the Fujinon XF and XC world.
The Fujinon XC15-45mm f/3.5-5.6 will be bigger than Sony’s Power Zoom solution, the Sony 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6, but I guess that Fujifilm tried to find the sweet spot between compact size and image quality.
Given the fact that we now have a close estimate of the final XC15-45 size, I will launch again the poll, if you are interested to buy it or not.
