Fujinon XF 60mm f/2.5 Macro OIS Patent Spotted

Share

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).

I say it, because people are still desperately waiting for the Fujinon XF 300mm F4 and XF 500mm F5.6, which I warned you already are nowhere near to come (if ever).

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.

Fujifilm has a new Macro in the works, but it’s the XF30mmF2.8 Macro here. And they have also a MKII lens to come this year, but it’s the XF56mmF1.2 MKII here.
