Fujifilm XF 200mm f/2 Lens Rumored to be in Development

Fujifilm is rumored to be working on a XF 200mm f/2 telephoto prime lens for its X-mount mirrorless cameras.

The upcoming XF 200mm lens will have a maximum aperture of f/2 instead of f/2.8. Sure this will be a tough choice for Fuji because with a 200mm f/2 it will be significantly larger and more expensive.

The Fujifilm XF 200mm f/2 lens is expected to become available this year at the Photokina 2016 event in September. More buzz after the break!

Fujifilm XF 200mm f/2 Lens Coming at Photokina 2016?

If we see the XF 200mm f/2 prime lens in 2016 it will be the second telephoto lens after the recently launched XF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR model.

No detailed specs or price information available at the moment. But if rumors are true that will be an amazing lens for the X-shooters family.

When we consider Canon and Nikon versions of the current 200mm f/2 lenses, a possible XF 200mm f/2 will probably cost around $6,000. This optic would be ideal for sports and wildlife photography. Our guess making it with a f/2.8 max aperture reduces the overall size and weight. It will also be less expensive than the f/2 version and fit the APS-c system.

Alongside the Fujifilm XF 200mm f/2 lens, the company is rumored to announce a new XF 33mm f/1.0 prime lens for Photokina 2016. We have to underline that both lenses are on Fuji’s unofficial roadmap. Means that the company may change their plans for future products.

    A company that is serious about photography, needs serious lenses.
    Even if that means such lens isn’t for everybody.

    Jeeez, I asked for the ‘affordable’ 200/2.8, and in stead we get the ultra expensive, heavy, big,unwieldy telephoto. I just wish Fuji would really listen, in stead of this grandstanding. The f2 series of lenses for wide angle and normal vieuwpoint IS a good idea though and will have my full support (and money…).

    How about a 300mm f4 with image stabilisation.
