Fujifilm has announced a trio of new lenses, including a fast XF 50mm f/1.0, as well as a new firmware update that adds pixel shift capability to the GFX100.
Revealed at its X Summit in London, the firmware update for the mirrorless medium format GFX100 will add the ability to create 400-megapixel images using new pixel shift technology.
The headline lens announced at the X Summit is a new fast nifty fifty, the XF50mm f/1.0. Offering a 75mm equivalent fixed focal length, the XF50mm f/1.0 is weather resistant and offers a minimum aperture of f/16.
This lens is still in development. Fujifilm showed off a prototype at the event. The company says the lens will also deliver impressive bokeh.
Fujifilm did not state a firm release date for the XF50mm f/1.0, but it did say that it plans to announce three more XF lenses in the next year, in addition to the new nifty fifty.
GF80mm f/1.7 & GF30mm f/3.5
Fujifilm also unveiled a duo of new GF lenses for its GFX system. Both new GF lenses are weather resistant and offer equivalent focal lengths of 24mm and 63mm, respectively.
The GF30mm provides a minimum aperture of f/32, while the GF80mm stops down to f/22.
