Now In Stock: Fujinon XF90mmF2 R LM WR

Fuji90mmThe FUJINON XF90mmF2 R LM WR is a fast-aperture prime lens with a focal length equivalent to 137mm* and a maximum aperture of F2.0, that delivers ultra-sharp images with rich bokeh even at the maximum aperture setting. The optical construction of 11 elements in 8 groups (including three ED glass elements) minimizes vignetting and creates beautiful bokeh thanks to the rounded diaphragm, which makes it perfect for portraiture as well as other applications.

Ultra-sharp images even at the maximum aperture

The optical construction comprises 11 elements in 8 groups, including three ED (extra low-dispersion) elements, which reduces chromatic aberrations to deliver sharp, rich images even at the widest aperture of F2.0.

Beautiful bokeh

The rounded aperture blades combined with an optical construction designed to minimize vignetting creates beautiful circular bokeh right to the edge of the image. In addition, stunning depth is possible in images thanks to the differentiation between the razor-sharp subject and the bokeh in front and behind it.

High-speed autofocus as fast as 0.14sec* thanks to a newly-developed Quad Linear Motor

A linear motor is fast, quiet and accurate, but here four magnets are used for higher torque. The high-speed autofocus provides a more versatile shooting experience, allowing users to quickly react to subtle changes in a subject’s facial expression.

Close focusing to 60cm and 0.3x magnification (35mm format equivalent)

The close focusing capabilities of the FUJINON XF90mmF2 R LM WR allow you to isolate key parts of a subject so you can shoot dramatic portraits or close-ups of flowers and insects.

Weather, Dust, and Freeze Resistance

The lens features a weather- and dust-resistant structure with seven seals on the lens barrel. It can also work in temperatures as low as -10°C. This keeps the lens protected from rain, dust and splashes of water when shooting outdoors.

Lightweight and compact

The lens weighs approx 540g, and is compact too, with a filter thread measuring just 62mm. The combined weight with the XF56mmF1.2 R is less than 1kg – great news for portrait photographers who want to travel light and still shoot with prime lenses for sharp images and strong bokeh.

Reduced wind noise and enhanced audio capture—no matter what the conditions or activity.

Built-in battery.

The battery is built directly into the camera and offers up to two hours of recording time on a full charge. The included USB cable allows for charging the camera with your computer or the GoPro Auto or Wall Charger.

Mount upside down, capture right-side up.
