The Fujifilm XF 35mm f/1.4 Lens Rumored to Feature New AF motor

Fujifilm is rumored to announce a new XF 35mm f/1.4 lens by the end of June. The next generation Fuji XF 35mm f/1.4 lens is reported to come packed with a new AF motor that will provide faster autofocusing.

According to inside sources the next-gen Fuji XF 35mm f/1.4 lens will be updated to feature the same AF motor like the XF 23mm f/1.4 R and XF 56mm f/1.2 R models.

The only major change of the lens will be the new autofocus motor. It is still not clear that the lens will be weathersealed or not.
