SIZE COMPARED: Fujinon XF56mmF1.2 MKII vs XF56mmF1.2 plus XF30mmf2.8 and XF8mmF3.5 vs Current X Mount Lenses


So Fujifilm announced a new X mount roadmap. The three new lenses are:

  • Fujinon XF56mm f/1.2 MKII
  • Fujinon XF30mm f/2.8 Macro
  • Fujinon XF8mm f/3.5

During the X summit, they dispayed some technical sketches of the lenses which I used as a base to compare it to other X mount lenses.

Let’s go through the 3 comparisons:

Fujinon XF56mmF1.2 MK II vs XF56mmF1.2

This was an obvious pick: the new XF56mmF1.2 MKII vs the old XF56mmF1.2.

We can se that the new version looks a bit fatter and slightly longer, but overall still quite close to the original version.

It will add weather sealing and tweaked optical design.

Fujinon XF30mmF2.8 Macro

In this case I’ve picked the most modern lens in about the same focal range, the XF33mmF1.4 R LM WR and on the right side you can see the other compact macro lens, the Fujinon XF60mmF2.4.

The XF30mmF2.8 Macro makes a slim impression and seems to be just a hair longer than the Fujinon XF60mmF2.4 Macro.

Fujinon XF8mmF3.5 Macro

This was not a very easy one, as there is nothing offered by Fujifilm in this range.

The closest prime lens is the Fujinon XF14mmF2.8, which you can see on the very right side of the image below.

Another wide AF lens is the Zeiss Touit 12mmF2.8 which you can see on the very left.

The closest option is the Laowa 9mm f/2.8, but that one has no autofocus. The Laowa is the 2nd lens from the right.
