Valhalla, N.Y., April 17, 2013 – FUJIFILM North America Corporation today announced the launch of the FUJINON XF55-200mm (83-300mm*1) F3.5-F4.8 R LM OIS, the first XF telephoto zoom lens for the X-Series Interchangeable Lens Digital Camera System that includes the award-winning FUJIFILM X-Pro1 and FUJIFILM X-E1. The all new XF55mm-200mm (83-300mm) F3.5-F4.8 gives photographers a fast aperture across the entire zoom range and outstanding image stabilization for sharp, high resolution images.

“We know that adding this newly designed, advanced telephoto zoom lens to our XF lens line-up will allow photographers who are using our premium X-Pro1 and X-E1 cameras to gain even more shooting flexibility, and also have cutting edge optical technology at their fingertips that enhances the way they capture images,” said Go Miyazaki, president and chief operating officer, FUJIFILM North America Corporation.

FUJINON XF55-200mm (83-300mm*1) F3.5-F4.8 R LM OIS
The all new FUJINON XF55-200mm lens gives users a fast F3.5-4.8 lens that produces
sharp images across its entire zoom range, from edge-to-edge.  Its image stabilization function enables the use of shutter speeds up to 4.5 stops slower, preventing camera shake even when shooting hand-held in low-light situations, or when shooting at a stopped down aperture.

The XF55-200mm lens includes two linear motors for high-speed AF of 0.28 seconds*2 to quickly focus on your subject. Together with its high quality metal design, the XF55-200mm lens delivers an easy-to-transport lens with a large maximum aperture for outstanding mobility and performance.

The FUJINON XF55-200mm (83-300mm*1) F3.5-F4.8 R LM OIS lens features:
• An advanced optical design to cover the mid-telephoto (83mm) to telephoto (300mm)
• Image stabilization for shutter speeds up to 4.5 stops slower
• Two linear motors for high-speed AF and quiet operation
• Two ED lens elements and one Super ED lens element for increased performance and effective control against chromatic aberrations
• FUJINON’s proprietary HT-EBC coating on the entire lens surface to effectively prevent reflections, and control flare and ghosting
• Minimum focal distance of 1.1m across the entire zoom range to enable telephoto close-ups
• A 1/3EV step aperture ring for users to easily adjust the aperture while holding the camera up to their eye
• High quality, metal construction focus ring and aperture ring

New Firmware for FUJIFILM X-Pro1 and FUJIFILM X-E1
New firmware will also be released to improve auto focus performance for the FUJIFILM X-Pro1 and FUJIFILM X-E1*3. The new firmware maximizes the benefit of the XF lenses and enables the cameras to search the contrast AF quickly throughout the full range of focal length. The focus speed will be as fast as 0.7 seconds even if it searches from infinity to MOD at the telephoto end.

The new firmware*3 will be available in July 2013 for download at Fujifilm.com.

Updated FUJINON XF Lens Roadmap
Fujifilm is committed to the entire X-Series line of advanced digital cameras and FUJINON XF lens, and is issuing an updated XF lens roadmap following the initial XF lens roadmap released in June 2012*4,5.
