Fujifilm Manager Calculates Weight Saving Between XF150-600mm f/6.3 vs f/8 at Long End

When we first shared the rumor of Fujifilm developing an XF150-600mm lens, many hoped it would not be slower than f/6.3 at the long end.

But then, in April 2022, we anticipated here that it would be f/8 at the long end.

In a talk with the Japanese youtube channel カメラのキタムラ, the manager addressed exactly this topic.

Once again we rely on the bad automatic YouTube translation tool, and given that I am now on my last days of holiday, which I am spending isolated with my family because we got Covid for the first time, I am not really in a super mood to fight with the automatic translation all too much.

And yet, there are a few things I’d like to highlight for you.

The manager calculated the weight difference between being f/6.3 and f/8 at the long end, and the result was that by going with f/8 Fujifilm saved 400g of weight.

So the question for Fujifilm was, is it worth to add 400g in order to have a 2/3 stops faster lens? Evidently not, at least in Fujifilm’s eyes.

Other things the manager said:

  • inner part of the lens is made of magnesium, outside part of plastic, also in this case the goal was to save weight
  • white color to handle better temperature changes
  • inner zoom
  • 3 front elements are heavy. When hold downwards, the lens would extend. The internal zoom solves this problem
  • four super ED elements to reduce chromatic aberration
  • can be used with teleconverters
  • linear motor

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

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:

Here is a little roundup to catch up with the latest first look reviewers about Fuji’s newest gear trinity.

It includes a Nikon Z9 shooter going hands on with the Fujifilm X-H2S and explaining us why 40fps do matter. It’s the first video in the “video section” down below, and it is also summarized for you in case you don’t have time to watch it right now.

And of course we got also the XF18-120mmF4 and XF150-600mF5.6-8 covered.

So, I guess you have now something to read and watch… I’ll jump in the Mediterranean water while you get through this all ;).

the Fujinon XF18-120mmF4 entered the Fuji world with little fanfare.

But here on FujiRumors we treat all lenses with the same dignity, so we will start the roundup with this lens. More precisely, the with the coverage of Taylor Jackson, who says:

  • there are four ways to zoom
    1) a zoom ring designed to feel like a manual zoom ring
    2) behind the zoom ring, there is a zoom lever
    3 )there is a zoom button to zoom at a constant speed
    4) ou can zoom via touch screen controls
  • exposure stepping still exists [on this pre-production copy]
  • minimal focus breathing
  • very versatile
