Fujifilm has announced the Fujinon XC 50-230mm F4.5-6.7 OIS lens, a relatively small, lightweight zoom for Fujifilm’s mirrorless cameras, designed to complement smaller bodies like the X-M1 and X-A1. It features optical image stabilization for sharper handheld pictures, and uses a stepper motor for fast focusing. Like the XC 16-50mm F3.5-5.6 OIS, but unlike Fujifilm’s more-expensive ‘R’ type lenses, it doesn’t have an aperture ring – instead this is controlled from the camera body. This means that X-Pro1 and X-E1 owners will need to install the latest firmware to use the lens.
Along with Olympus OM-D E-M1 mirrorless camera, Olympus has also unveiled a high-end standard zoom to match the E-M1, the M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-40mm F2.8 PRO. It offers a 24-80mm equivalent range, is dust-, splash- and freeze-proof, and uses a manual focus clutch design similar to the 12mm F2 and 17mm F1.8 primes. A minimum focus distance of 0.2m offers 0.3x magnification, and the lens has a L.Fn button whose function can be customised from the camera. The 14 element / 9 group design is packed full of exotic glass, and includes two aspheric elements. Minor ergonomic improvements include a locking lens hood and centre-pinch lens cap.
We have told Sigma will announced another full frame lens sometime in 2013. This rumored lens is Sigma 24-105mm f/4 DG OS HSM lens(Not sure if has optical image stabilizer).
Fujifilm has announced the FUJINON XF23mm F1.4 R, a premium fast wideangle lens for its X system mirrorless cameras. It offers the same moderate wideangle view as the fixed-lens X100S, but with an extra stop of brightness. The overall design approach is similar to the company’s recent XF14mm F2.8 R, with distance and depth of field scales for manual focusing, and fully optical (rather than digital) correction of distortion. The 23mm F1.4 will be available in October 2013
