According to Nokishita, Fujifilm is on the verge to announce a new XF 50mm f/1 R WR Lens soon. It is expected that the new Fujifilm XF 50mm f/1 R WR Lens will be officially announced in the next few days.
The new Fujinon XF 50mm f/1.0 R WR lens, which is the world’s fastest autofocus lens, joins the XF16mm f/2.8, XF 16-80mm f/4 and the XC 35mm f/2 lenses, bringing the total number of X-mount lenses to 35. There was a working prototype of the XF 50mm f/1.0 on display at the London X Summit and the lens features large-diameter lens elements as well as 2 ED lenses.
The Fujifilm XF 50mm f/1.0 R WR was originally going to be a 35mm F1.0 lens (52.5mm equivalent focal length), but Fujifilm pivoted to a 50mm F1.0 (75mm equivalent) design due to size, weight and autofocus speed considerations.It’s still a big lens when mounted on an Fujifilm X-T3 and comes with a 77mm filter thread and carries a ‘WR’ label for weather resistance.
Fujifilm XF 50mm f/1 R WR Lens specs:
- US price: Around $1,500
- Weight: Under 1,000g
- Minimum aperture f/16
- 77 mm filter size
- More beautiful bokeh than the XF 56mm f/1.2
