A patent has been registered by Fujifilm that shows a Fujinon XF 60mm f/2.5 Macro OIS. Digicame-info, who spotted the patent and reports here, writes:
There are several examples with different lens configurations, but all of them are macros of 60mm f/2.5 and include an anti-vibration lens group (OIS). The focusing lens (GF1, GF2) moves internally, so it’s inner focus. Will one of these examples be the successor to the current XF60mm f/2.4 R?
You know what I think about patents. In 10 years of blogging I have shared hundreds of those on FR, and maybe only one became real (and I think even that one, we rumored it before the patent even surfaced).
Patents are concepts written on paper, and they remain such in 99% of the cases. So please don’t put too much hope in any of them.

Name of invention: Image sensor and imaging device
- [Issue] We provide an imaging lens with good aberration correction even in proximity shooting conditions, and an imaging device with this imaging lens.
- In recent years, with the high pixelization of the image sensor, it has been requested to have an image lens with a good aberration correction even in proximity shooting conditions.
- This disclosure is based on the above circumstances, and the purpose is to provide an imaging lens with a good aberration correction even in proximity shooting conditions, and an imaging device with this imaging lens.
- Example 1 (60mm f/2.5)
Focal length 58.210
F number 2.5
Total angle of view 26.64
Maximum image height 14.2
