Fujifilm has announced the release of the FUJINON XF33mm F1.4 R LM WR, which will join the line of interchangeable lenses in the XF series designed for mirrorless digital cameras X-series in APS-C format. It’s a new-generation prime lens with constant focal length and fast aperture, delivering astonishing sharpness even at the maximum aperture. Extraordinarily fast autofocus and a rugged body, which makes it possible to shoot in harsh weather conditions, add to such high resolution.
Key features of the FUJINON XF33mm F1 lens.4 R LM WR
Consisting of 15 elements in 10 groups, including two aspherical and three low dispersion lenses, the lens effectively suppresses chromatic and spherical aberration, ensuring sharp images throughout the entire image, even at the wide open aperture and throughout the entire focusing range, from close-up to infinity.
At the maximum aperture value of F1.4 R enables high image quality with minimal blur and digital noise even in low light conditions, such as poorly lit rooms or night landscapes. At an aperture value of F1.4 lens provides a shallow depth of field to create a background with a smooth bokeh effect and adds sharp contrast as well as volume to the main subject in focus. In addition to that, the nine-blade aperture lets you get an almost round bokeh even at maximum aperture.
The lens has the popular 33 mm focal length equivalent to 50 mm in 35 mm format . This focal length gives you a field of view as close as possible to that of the human eye, for a natural perspective. Lens is suitable for a wide variety of shooting situations, from portraits to snapshots to landscapes. Also suitable for close-up shots, with a minimum focus distance of 30 cm and a maximum magnification of 0.15h.
The lens uses an internal focus system in which a compact and lightweight focusing lens group is driven by a linear motor. This group of lenses is designed for a small range of motion to achieve fast and accurate adjustments. On Fujifilm cameras with a phase focus system, the focus adjustment takes just 0.04 seconds
In addition, the use of a linear motor ensures accurate focusing even in AF-C mode, and the optical design minimizes the effect of “focus breathing”, so this lens is ideal for fully-featured video shooting.
The lens body is water and dust proof at 11 points, enabling shooting in harsh weather conditions including sub-zero temperatures down to -10°C. Snapshots in rainy conditions or capture the stars on cold winter nights thanks to its weatherproof casing, shooting is possible in all conditions.
