Fujifilm widens X-series lens lineup

The company will roll out a 10-24mm f4 OIS in the spring.


DSLRs have their 16-35mm staple lenses, now Fujifilm is offering a 10-24mm f4 -- equivalent to 15-36mm on a full-frame camera -- X-mount lens for its X series of interchangeable-lens cameras.

Notably, it has image stabilization; a lot of manufacturers still contend that you don't need that in short focal-length lenses, but some folks, like me, need it in every lens.

It uses internal focus, has a seven-blade aperture, incorporates the company's High Transmittance Electron Beam Coating, and can focus as closely as 9.4 inches. Plus, like some of the higher-end XF lenses, it offers a manual aperture ring.

The XF10-24mm F4 R OIS is slated to ship in March for $999.95.
