FUJIFILM announces FUJINON MK50-135mm T2.9

The perfect compact lens kit for emerging and independent film-makers

FUJIFILM announces FUJINON MK50-135mm T2.9 FUJIFILM announces FUJINON MK50-135mm T2.9

FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Kenji Sukeno) will release the FUJINON MK50-135mm T2.9 (MK50-135mm) telephoto zoom cinema lens in July 2017. The MK50-135mm has a focal length of 50-135mm and can be combined with the FUJINON MK18-55mm T2.9 (MK18-55mm) standard zoom lens, that was released in March 2017, to form a kit that covers the most frequently-used focal lengths of 18mm to 135mm, accommodating a broader variety of conditions.

The rapid growth in popularity of movies made by emerging cinematographers in recent years, including corporate and commercial movies on the internet and other venues, has increased the opportunities for shooting movies using cinema and regular digital cameras, and it boosts demand for high-performance cinema lenses that deliver high resolution and advanced scene-depicting capability. For filming such materials, interchangeable lenses for digital cameras are often used instead of cinema camera lenses as they are more affordable and mobile. However, these lenses are designed primarily for shooting still images, and therefore prone to problems such as focus shift and optical axis shift while zooming, and so on.

In response, Fujifilm has developed the MK series of cinema lenses that resolve these issues while still offering advanced optical performance and an ultra-compact and lightweight design – all at an affordable price. The MK18-55mm that was launched in March this year has been popular among emerging cinematographers who praise it for its edge-to-edge sharpness and ease of handling thanks to its compact and lightweight design.
