Fujifilm Unveils “MK” Cinema Lenses Series and Updates Lens Release RoadMap

Fuji has made some really impressive moves into the videography world with their recent mirrorless camera releases, the XT20 and X100F, offering 4K quality at a reasonable, lighweight and compact package.

These new releases continue this trend. Drawing on Fujinon’s Cine lenses’ edge-to-edge optical performance and low distortion, the lenses have three adjustment rings – aperture, zoom and focus – with the latter ring encircling the lens by 200 degrees to allow for precise adjustments.

Interestingly, they are releasing Sony E-Mount versions before Fuji X Mounts. The MK18-55mm will be the first release in this line, slated for release in early march and the E-Mount MK50-135, which is still in development, should be available this summer. Fuji X-Mount versions of these lenses should be available by the end of this year.

Additionally, Fuji gave us an updated sneakpeak into what they have in the works for 2018 releases:
