Fujinon XF150-600mmF5.6-8 and XF18-120mmF4 Compatible with All X Mount Cameras but Some Will Have Restricted Features

Share

Earlier today Fujifilm released firmware updates for ten Fujifilm X and GFX cameras.

The firmware included XF150-600mm f/5.6-8 compatibility for three Fujifilm cameras, the X-T4, X-T3 and X-S10.

This lead to the misunderstanding that the Fujinon XF150-600mm f/5.6-8 will work only with four cameras: the Fujifilm X-H2S, the X-T4, X-T3 and the X-S10.

However, that’s not correct.

The Fujinon XF150-600mm f/5.6-8 will work with all Fujifilm X series cameras. However, except for the four cameras mentioned above, the other cameras will have restrictions on some features and functions. The same is valid also for the brand new Fujinon XF18-120mmF4.

Here is what Fujifilm writes on their compatibility page:
