Fujinon XF70-300mm F4-5.6 Possibly with 67mm Filter Size

We recently published a size comparison here between the upcoming Fujinon XF70-300mm f/4-5.6 and other longer Fujinon X telephoto zooms.

In that article, we reported how FR-reader Fujiste calculated a filter size of 72mm.

Now FR-reader Xandros contacted me with his own calculations of the filter size, and according to him the filter size should be of 67mm. You can see his measurements in the image above.

As for its overall size, here on FujiRumors we calculated the length of the Fujinon XF70-300mm f/4-5.6, and we saw that it is roughly 1.5 cm longer than the Fujinon XF55-200mm f/3.5-4.8.

I guess the very compact size of the XF70-300mm f/4-5.6 will make it the strongest competitor to the good old XF55-200mm, and that’s probably the reason why Fujifilm is now heavily discounting the XF55-200mm.

What a nice lens Fujifilm gave us here!

My Cat and my XF18-135

SIZE COMPARISON: Fujinon XF70-300mmF4-5.6 vs XF55-200mmF3.5-4.8 vs XF100-400mmF4.5-5.6 vs XC50-230mmF4.5-6.7

One of the most my personal most pleasing surprises of yesterday’s Fujifilm X Summit, was to see the lovely Fujinon XF70-300mmF4-5.6.

It’s compact, it works with both, the 1.4x teleconverter and the 2x teleconverter and it is definitely a lens that I can see becoming a huge hit for Fujifilm.

Fujifilm showed some hands-on images yesterday at the X summit (all visible in our dedicated article), and they also shared some technical sketches.

I couldn’t resit my own curiosity, so I took the technical sketches and used it to compare it to other Fujinon lenses, more specifically to the.

You can see the results above.

Based on the size comparison, I tried to approximately measure the size of the Fujinon XF70-300mm f/4-5.6, and I saw that it is roughly 1.5 cm longer than the Fujinon XF55-200mm f/3.5-4.8.

Hence, according to this calculation, the Fujinon XF70-300mm f/4-5.6 is about 133 mm long.

Also, according calculations made by FR-reader Fujiste, it should have a 72mm filter size.
