Fujifilm X-T30, XF 16mm f/2.8 R WR, FinePix XP140 Announced !

Fujifilm has officially announced X-T30, XF 16mm f/2.8 R WR lens, FinePix XP140.

The X-T30 APS-C mirrorless camera provides many of the features found in the higher-end X-T3, including its 26.1MP X-Trans sensor and X-Processor 4 Quad Core-CPU, along with some autofocus improvements that will come to the X-T3 later via a firmware update. X-T30 will go on sale in March for $899 body-only, $999 with XC 15-45mm F3.5-5.6 OIS Power Zoom or $1299 with 18-55mm F2.8-4. At launch the X-T30 will be offered in black or silver, with a handsome charcoal silver option to follow in June.

The XF 16mm f/2.8 R WR Lens is a compact and lightweight wide-angle prime for the company’s APS-C mirrorless bodies. The lens is equivalent to 24mm when mounted on an X-series camera, such as the new X-T30. It contains a total of 10 elements (two of which are aspherical) and nine rounded aperture blades.

The XF 16mm F2.8 R WR will be available in black in March, with the silver version to follow in May. The suggested retail price for both is $399.

The Fujifilm FinePix XP140 is waterproof to 25m / 82ft, shockproof up to 1.75m / 5.9ft, freeze-proof to 10°C / 14ºF and dustproof. Compared to its predecessor, the XP130, this is an improved waterproof depth of 5m / 17ft, with all of the other stats staying more or less the same. The XP140 also includes a more pronounced grip for better handling in rough environments.
