Launch of the first telephoto zoom for the XF Lens series
"FUJINON XF55-200mmF3.5-4.8 R LM OIS"
Fast aperture of F3.5 - 4.8 across the entire zoom range and outstanding image stabilisation
FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Shigehiro Nakajima) is proud to announce the launch of the new “FUJINON XF55-200mmF3.5-4.8 R LM OIS” lens for the FUJIFILM X-Pro1 and X-E1 compact system cameras.
FUJINON XF lenses feature advanced lens engineering, capable of drawing the maximum performance out of the highly-descriptive "X-Trans CMOS Sensor" in the FUJIFILM X-Pro1 and X-E1 cameras. The new FUJINON XF55-200mm lens produces sharp images across its entire zoom range, well resolved corner-to-corner. The fast F3.5-4.8 lens facilitates image capture in scenes requiring a fast shutter speed. Its image stabilisation function enables the use of shutter speeds 4.5 stops slower, preventing camera shake even when shooting hand-held in low-light, or at a stopped down aperture. Furthermore, it is built to include two linear motors for high-speed AF of 0.18 seconds*1, instantaneously focusing on your subject.

New Firmware will speed up the Auto Focus performance for X-Pro1 and X-E1 Together with the launch of XF55-200mmF3.5-4.8R LM, Fujifilm will upgrade the firmware for X-Pro1 and X-E1. Thanks to new algorism, the firmware will maximize the benefit of the lens enabling the cameras to search the contrast AF quickly throughout the full range of focal length. The focus speed will be as fast as 0.7 sec. even if it searches from infinity to MOD at tele photo end. By upgrading with new firmware, the X-Pro1 and X-E1 will also improve AF speed with other existing XF lenses. The firmware will be available to download from Fujifilm web site when the time gets near to the introduction of XF55-200mmF3.5-4.8R LM
