The first electric-powered zoom lens for the x mount. The lens has the minimum working distance of just 5cm, ideal for clear close-up shots. The smooth electric-powered zooming mechanism that starts from the wide angle 23mm end (35mm film format equivalent) gives freedom in composition framing still images and video.
The smallest and lightest weight interchangeable zoom lens for the "X Series" mirrorless digital camera range
The composition of 10 lenses in 9 groups, including three aspherical lenses and two ED lenses, provides excellent resolution at all zoom positions, while measuring just 44.2mm* long and weighing only 135g.
Covers frequently used focal lengths
This new lens covers the frequently used focal length from 23mm to 69mm (in 35mm format equivalent) which makes it a suitable lens for shooting both landscape and portrait photography. Because the wide angle end is equivalent to 23mm, this lens will be suitable for capturing self-portraits featuring multiple people or backgrounds when using with a camera with a 180° tilting LCD screen, such as FUJIFILM X-A5.
Ability to shoot close-up, 5cm from the lens tip
Using the widest angle position, the lens allows photographers to shoot subjects which are around 5cm from the end of the lens, achieving a maximum reproduction ratio of 0.24. This lens is ideal for those wanting to take close-up shots of food, flowers or small accessories.
Electric zoom and comfortable operation
Creating a small, collapsible lens has been made possible by utilizing an electric zoom. When the camera is switched on, the lens automatically extends ready for shooting.
Two different zoom speeds can be selected by the rotating of the zoom ring. The lens moves position at a constant speed, producing smooth zooming motion when shooting movies.
Optical image stabilization
The electric zoom includes 3.0-stop optical image stabilization technology compatible with CIPA guidelines, which assists photographers shooting in low light conditions.
Fast and silent autofocus
The inner focusing AF system uses a stepping motor to drive lightweight focusing elements for a fast and silent autofocus performance.
