Fujifilm XF-50-140mm f2.8 WR OIS

The Fujifilm 50-140mm f/2.8 lens is a high performance, weather-resistant telephoto zoom designed for use with Fujifilm's X series of compact system cameras. The lens features a versatile focal length and a constant f/2.8 aperture making it suitable for a wide range of photographic applications, including sport, travel, wildlife and night time photography. The lens is also equipped with the world's first Triple Linear Motor, which uses an inner focusing system to maximise portability and ensure AF operation is quick, smooth and quiet. As with other Fujifilm XF lenses, the 50-140mm offers an all-metal barrel construction and an aperture control ring.

Optical design for flagship telephoto zoom image quality

The Fujifilm 50-140mm f2.8 WR OIS XF Lens aims to deliver the best image quality in its class. It features an optical construction comprising of 23 glass elements in 16 groups, with 5 ED lens elements and one Super ED lens element comparable to a fluorite lens. This maximises the reduction of chromatic aberrations and delivers high resolving power.

Thanks to the application of Fujifilm’s unique HT-EBC (High Transmittance Electron Beam Coating) to the entire area of the lens surface as well as the newly developed Nano-GI (Gradient Index) coating technology, ghosting and flare are controlled for sharp, clear images. They are effectively reduced for diagonal incident light.

Similarly to other XF lenses, Fujifilm 50-140mm f2.8 WR OIS XF Lens features 7 rounded aperture blades which create a smooth, circular bokeh. An optical design has been used to produce beautiful bokeh at both front and back.

The Fujifilm 50-140mm f2.8 WR OIS XF Lens includes an inner zooming mechanism which means that the lens does not change length so the lens’ balance remains the same throughout the zoom range.

The Fujifilm 50-140mm f2.8 WR OIS XF Lens has been combined with an X Series camera body (supported by the “FUJIFILM X-T1” and “FUJIFILM X-E2” as of August, 2014) as well as a Lens Modulation Optimiser (LMO) technology. The LMO is Fujifilm's very own image processing function that corrects the optical effects of diffraction, based on the optical performance of each lens. This combination has improved the lens performance even further. The LMO corrects for diffraction to produce images with edge-to-edge sharpness and create a realistic 3-dimensional effect, even at small apertures.

High-speed and quiet autofocus thanks to the world’s first Triple Linear Motor

An Inner Focusing System is used for high-speed AF. It is a method for moving the small lenses in the middle and rear sections of the lens, without moving the large lenses composing the front of the lens. By reducing the weight of the focus lens and mounting the Triple Linear Motor at intervals of 120°, high-speed, quiet AF is possible. Faster AF is possible when by combining this lens with an X Series camera body offering Phase Detection AF. Combined with the near-silent shutter sound, photos can be taken unnoticed in quiet locations.

As AF operates using a signal from the imaging sensor, extremely high-precision focusing is possible.

With a minimum working distance of 1m for the entire zoom range, this lens is also great for close ups.

The best image stabilisation performance in its class

Thanks to a high-performance gyro sensor and unique algorithm that cancels drift due to temperature changes, the XF50-140mm delivers the best image stabilisation performance in its class. Combined with a bright F/2.8 aperture, handholding is now possible in new areas for a telephoto zoom.

Weather resistant, dust-resistant and freeze proof to -10°C low-temperature operation

By applying seals to each portion of the barrel, the lens is weather-resistant, dust-resistant and -10°C low-temperature operation, making it the perfect companion for the X-T1, which has the same levels of protection.

High build quality and comfortable operation

Both the focus and aperture rings are metal, plus metal is also used on the exterior of the lens body for a high-quality finish. Thanks to long-term experience and broaden know-how for other top-end professional lens fields such as Broadcasting and CinemaScope, the texture and torque on the rings makes for comfortable shooting even for delicate manual focusing. The lens mount is made from brass for improved strength.

Combined with a camera body, the lens is approximately 60% of the weight of a full-size system (according to Fujifilm research), considerably reducing the burden on the photographer.

The AF+MF function enables seamless manual focusing. After pressing the shutter to autofocus on the subject, fine adjustments can then be made using the manual focus ring. This is a function which allows seamless manual focusing by rotating the focus ring while pressing the shutter halfway during AF lock. A firmware upgrade is required for the camera body in order to use this function. (Applicable models: X-Pro1/X-E1/X-E2/X-T1).
