Complete Overview over the available and upcoming Fuji X-Mount lenses

Recommended Posts

May I offer an update re the 2.0x teleconverter.  It is stated in the excellent lens summary above that you lose phased contrast detection when coupled with the 50-140mm lens.  Actually - it does keep contrast and phase detection.  You do lose phase detection with the 100 - 400mm tele when coupled with the 2.0x because it cannot get enough light through.  I have successfully taken high speed focusing shots in low light with the 50-140mm with the 2.0x converter so I thought I'd give this update.  Also more here: https://www.digitaltrends.com/photography/2x-fujifilm-teleconverter-announcement/

May I offer an update re the 2.0x teleconverter...

  

...

Thanks digitalfella, I’ve been considering when I want a long telephoto lens for a while, and plumped for the 55-200mm which I should have in November. Obviously, I know the 2.0x teleconverter doesn’t work with that lens; but I will see if it’s long enough for my needs. The 2.0x is not cheap and is a lot of glass, but the example result looks good.

 

@quincy. Would you consider adding the 1.4x and 2.0x teleconverters to your post, with a list of compatible lenses and review references?

it's technically a Fuji X mount lens, but not sure if we should add it to the list...

Well, it would certainly help people like myself to make an informed choice on lens purchases especially as the teleconverter only fits a selection of lenses.

May be worth to add current total number somewhere in the first post of topic.

done.

Thank You for your comment.

In the description text below the 50-140 I stated "Cameras retain phase detection autofocus with this lens and the 2x teleconverter attached.", while the description text of the 100-400 states "With the 2x teleconverter attached, all current camera models lose phase detection autofocus and have to use contrast detection autofocus.". So I think I already did what you asked for, right?

So far, the 50-140 and the 100-400 are the only two lenses compatible with the teleconverters. Therefore, I've added the teleconverters to both lenses' description text, and I think both lenses have reviews linked concerning the TCs. Some time in the future when more TC-compatible lenses are available (not just the 80 macro), we could add a separate TC category.

Sure. We also added Fuji's own XM-FL body cap filter lens. It won't be on the chart though, because that only goes to 11 and this body cap lens is f/16. (won't change the layout of the chart anymore, until a native Fuji lens requires it)

Thanks Quincy, that works for me.

 

I’m assuming that there are no non branded teleconverters available?

 

In the meantime, I have a 55-200mm lens waiting for me in the U.K. and am looking forward to getting my hands on it.

So far, there are no teleconverters for Fujinon lenses other than the two made by Fujinon.

You can, however, use teleconverters from other brands for lenses from other brands and then adapt the whole stack to a Fujifilm camera. But I'd wait with doing this until real "smart" adapters with power supply, aperture control, lens info etc. are available.

 

Concerning the 55-200, it's still my favorite Fujinon lens, despite being a rather slow zoom. It's just so sharp at 200/4.8 and has a very pleasing bokeh for my taste. The stabilizer is fine for me, and it's very compact and lightweight. perfect travel-tele.

Kate, I have just received one of those and I’m pretty sure you won’t be disappointed!

I totally agree guys. I tried this one in Wex several months ago and it looked good, since then my uncle bought one and I ha e been looking at the reviews. I don’t think I’ll be disappointed either.

 

I think I’ve finally decided that for me, I will use primes below 50mm and zooms above that mark.

I've updated the OP, sorry for the delay. The chart still needs to be done, but adding 25(!) new lenses was a lot of work for now.

 

The "upcoming lenses" category is gone now, I'm definitely not fast enough for that. With all that's going on (MOG for example seems to cancel and announce lenses on a weekly basis) this is useless. I'll add lenses to the list when they are being sold.

 

Thanks everyone for your support!

      Hello Everyone,
       
      My name is Dwain and I'm new to this forum and to Fujifilm cameras but not to their film.  I'm a former Canon shooter (not professional).   I've decided to keep my Canon 6D, the 24-105 F4 and the 100 F2.8 macro lenses just in case.  I delved into large format (Chamonix 4x5) for a short time, shooting primarily Acros developed in Rollo Pyro.  My interests tend to lean towards landscape, architectural, environmental portraiture and night photography but lately, I've been itching to try street and event photography. 
      I recently placed an order for the X-T3 and the Fujinon XF18-55 F2.8-4 lens to get use to the system and a good place to start.  Not sure which other lenses to consider at this early stage.  I did look at the Poll here regarding the most used Fuji lenses and two of the focal lengths I've been considering (23 1.4 and 35 1.4) seem to be the most popular despite these being older designs.  The XF 16 1.4 also looks interesting. 
      Anyway, thought I'd introduce myself. 
      Feedback and suggestions welcome.

      Well my friends I went and done it!
       
      Some of you guys who have been here a while may recall my daughter "borrowed" my X-T1 and my "don't leave home without it lens" the Fuji 18-55.  For the last several months I've been photographing using my primes only -- the fabulous 16 f1.4, the 23 1.4, 35 1.4, and 60 2.4 plus the 55-200 zoom.  And I loved doing that.  I've truly enjoyed making images as I have to be slower, and more thoughtful in the process plus, let's face reality, the primes will always beat a zoom with regards to sharpness, and micro-contrast among other things.
      However, the 18-55 is a lens I cannot live without!  I love it.  There I said it.  If I loved it any more I'd have to name it and provide it it's own ss number for tax purposes.  
      I do plan on continuing to use primes for most of my images as I really enjoyed using them and have weened myself off the zoom, but I will feel much better knowing my 18-55 is back in my bag just in case I need it!
       
      To be completely honest:  I looked at the 16-55 2.8.  Many of you who "know me" know that I've said I would never purchase this lens, and it's brother the 50-140 2.8 due to 1) the weight  and 2) price.  I looked at the 16-55 2.8, i thought about it, but I just couldn't bring myself to purchase this heavy, and expensive lens when for a quarter of the price my 18-55 works wonders, is super tack sharp, and has provided me with YEARS of use -- my original 18-55 was the kit lens that came on my Fuji X-E1 I purchased back in February 2013!
       
      This image below is one of over 16,000 images I have taken in various locations ranging from Key West, to Prince Edward Island in Northern Canada between mid-July, and early November.  I believe I "lost" the 18-55 to my daughter when I returned from the Keys and was prepping to head north -- this image was in fact taken with the 18-55 lens.
       
      So, I'm now whole again and I couldn't be happier knowing it's there in case I need it.
       
      PS:  Here in the Classifieds I'm offering for sale my Zeiss/Touit 12mm F2.8 lens.  Check it out if you are in the market for a wide-angle for your Fuji!

      So my daughter, who already has taken ownership of some of my Nikon gear, has fallen in love with my X-T1 and my beloved 18-55 lens!
       
      She's been home from school for three months and returns next week for her final semester.  She has started a "new teachers blog" and has been using my X-T1 with the 18-55 to film it.  Now, she wants to take the X-T1 and the 18-55 back with her.  I don't care about the X-T1, but it's gonna hurt real bad not having the lens.  As many of you know, that's my "don't leave home without it lens".  
       
      I'm very torn up.  Initially I gave her, yes, gave her the X-T1 and the 23mm 1.4 as the 23 is not a lens I use often but every time I came home she had the 18-55 on there.  I have a  feeling I'm going to lose it.
       
      So, it looks that I'll be a prime shooter for at least six months -- Except for my 55-200, all my lower range lenses are primes.   I'm very, very nervous about not having that lens in the bag.  I can't tell you how many times I've gone out with the sole intention of shooting with the primes, have gotten so frustrated and fed up and just switched over to the 18-55 and was as happy as a pig in sh*t.
       
      Lordy Lordy....

      Hi all, I have just started to use an X-T2 and have still kept the Nikon, I have an adapter to use my Nikon lenses with the Fuji.  I need to set the focal length in Mount Adaptor Settings, it seems simple enough for primes eg. 105 mm, 35 mm, etc, but how do I input the focal length when using a zoom?  Do I set up the shot and then, before taking it, input the actual, or nearest!, focal length - then shoot?  I can get up to 999 mm but can't get 80-200 mm.......................... over to you.

      Fall road trip with my wife for a mix of subjects, landscape, street, urban and travel. Can't decide if the 18-55 or the 18-135 is the best walk around lens for this trip. the other lenses I am taking include 14, 35 1.4, 56 and the 55-200.
