Fujifilm Unveils Fujinon MK50-135mm T2.9 Cinema Lens

By on

Fujifilm will release the E-mount version of the Fujinon MK50-135mm T2.9 telephoto zoom cinema lens in July 2017.

The lens is compatible with E-mount cameras with a Super 35mm / APS-C sensor, and an X-mount version is also in the works.

The lens design is optimised for shooting movies, minimising focal and optical axis shift while zooming.  It features a mechanical design with three independent lens control rings: focus, iris, and zoom.

The Fujinon MK50-135mm T2.9 also features three rings to enable manual and independent adjustment of focus, zoom and aperture. The price of the cine lens is $3,999.

Each ring incorporates a cine-style gear with a 0.8 MOD for interfacing with standard cine -style lens accessories. The focus ring features approximately 200° of rotation, which provides room or precise focus pulls, and the iris is clickless, enabling smooth iris pulls. The lens also incorporates a macro mode for close focusing capabilities.

The lens is color matched to other Fujinon lenses such as the HK, ZK, and XK series, which enables smooth intercutting between lenses. The 85mm front enables use with many cine-style matte boxes via use of optional step up rings (rings not included). The lens weighs only 2.16 pounds, which is fairly light for a cinema zoom that holds focus and aperture throughout the focal length range. It is designed for camera’s with a Sony E-mount, so it has a short flange focal distance, but the lens allows flange focal distance adjustment so you can fine tune it to the camera you are using the lens on.
