Fujifilm Lens Lineup

When Fujifilm launched its new X-series in January 2012, it released three Fujinon lenses alongside the X-Pro1 and promised to quickly build-up a complete interchangeable camera and lens system. At the same time, the company provided its camera users with a roadmap of lenses under development, so that photographers knew what was in the pipeline and did not have to rely on guesswork or rumors to trace out their photo gear future. Six years later, we can say that Fujifilm delivered on the projected expansion of its lens line-up, with more than 20 X-mount lenses, ranging from ultra-wideangle to super-tele, being for sale. Nevertheless, Fuji continues to update its Fujinon roadmaps to guide its customers in the refinement of their camera and lens portfolio.

The latest roadmap was unveiled in July 2018. It shows two new Fujifilm camera lenses for release in 2019: A XF 16mmmm f/2.8 R WR wideangle prime, as well as a XF 16-80mmmm f/4 R OIS WR standard zoom. In addition, the company promises an ultra-fast XF 33 f/1 standard prime for 2020. Moreover, in an interview with dpreview.com, Fujifilm executives stated that the company is aware of remaining gaps in the XF line-up with respect to specialty applications, such as tilt/shift optics and fisheye lenses (the long rumored Fujinon XF 8mm f/2.8?). So there is hope that we might see some of these type of optics in the not too distant future.

Fuji xf rumors
Fujifilm lens roadmap, July 2018

The X-mount has also been supported by several third-party lens manufacturers. Zeiss already released three Touit lenses with autofocus functionality for Fujifilm cameras between 2012 and 2014. Samyang is offering a sizable range of manual focus primes with native Fuji mount, while China-based Handevision and Meike have equally been selling their lenses in a Fujifilm configuration. Given the success of the X-series among enthusiast photographers, we can reasonably expect that third-party support will get even stronger going forward.

Concerning adapted lenses, Fujifilm is selling an M-mount adapter that makes it possible to use lenses with a Leica M-bayonet on X-series cameras. Hence, many of the excellent rangefinder primes from Leica, Voigtländer or Zeiss can be mounted on an X-mirrorless. There are also third-party solutions to adapt other brand's lenses to Fujifilm, so that one can fill any remaining gaps in the Fujinon line-up with, for example, a Leica R tele, but these DSLR optics tend to be a bit larger and heavier than native lenses.

Fuji X-mount lenses

The table below lists the core specifications of native Fuji-mount lenses for ease of comparison. Fujifilm defines two main lens lines: the XF-series provides "highest quality and technologies", while the XC-line is "compact and casual". Indeed, XC zoom lenses are often bundled with X-mount cameras to offer attractively priced kits. The second (2015) versions of the XC 16-50mm and the XC 50-230mm are cosmetically and optically very similar to the first (2013) version releases, but offer better build quality, smoother operation, and more effective image stabilization.

Further Reading

One of the advantages of mirrorless cameras is the short flange to focal distance that makes it possible to use a variety of legacy lenses via adapters. Thus, the excellent Leica R-lenses, for example, can be mounted on to an X-series camera, as can most Leica M-mount optics. Or, if you just want to experiment with some unusual focal length without spending too much, what about some of the legacy lenses in the Soligor catalog?
