Fujifilm doesn’t offer many premium telephoto zooms for their X-mount cameras, but those they do are stunning and this is one example. The equivalent zoom range of 75-210mm and fast maximum aperture make it well suited to a wide range of applications and with quick, reliable focusing, effective optical image stabilisation and stunning image quality, it’s a firm favourite of many. Despite being smaller and lighter than comparable 70-200mm f/2.8 zooms for full-frame cameras it’s no less impressive. The level of sharpness it returns across the zoom range, combined with the way it controls chromatic aberrations is outstanding. Fujifilm set the bar of its telephoto zoom lineup extremely high with this lens.

A telephoto zoom offering the most frequently used telephoto focal lengths, equivalent to 76mm* to 214mm*, and a constant maximum aperture of F2.8 throughout.
It features the latest technology, including dust / water and low temperature resistance, a triple linear motor, and the world's top image stabilisation technology in its class.
Its advanced performance makes it a perfect choice, not only for portraiture and snapshots, but also to capture fast-moving subjects in sports or wildlife photography, and for general outdoor nature photography.
*35mm format equivalent.
F2.8 constant aperture through all focal lengths
The XF50-140mmF2.8 offers the user greater depth of field control than the previous XF zoom lenses due to it's constant F2.8 maximum aperture at all focal lengths.
High quality lens construction
To deliver the best image quality in its class, this luxurious telephoto zoom uses an optical construction comprising 23 glass elements in 16 groups, with five ED lens elements and one Super ED lens element comparable to a fluorite lens. This maximises the reduction of chromatic aberrations and delivers high resolving power.
Applying Fujifilm's unique HT-EBC (High Transmittance Electron Beam Coating) to the entire area of the lens surface ensures ghosting and flare are controlled for sharp, clear images. Also, using the newly developed Nano-GI (Gradient Index) coating technology, which alters the refractive index between glass and air, ghosting and flare are effectively reduced for diagonal incident light.
Like other XF lenses, seven rounded aperture blades create a smooth, circular bokeh. An optical design has been used to produce beautiful bokeh at both front and back.
An inner zooming mechanism means the lens does not change length so the lens' balance remains the same throughout the zoom range.
By combining this lens with an X Series camera body* with Lens Modulation Optimiser** (LMO) technology, the performance from the lens is improved even further. LMO corrects for diffraction*** to produce images with edge-to-edge sharpness and create a realistic three-dimensional effect, even at small apertures.
The world's first Triple Linear Motor provides fast, quiet autofocus
An Inner Focusing System*4 is used for high-speed AF. By reducing the weight of the focus lens and mounting the Triple Linear Motor at intervals of 120°, high-speed, quiet AF is possible.
Faster AF is possible when by combining this lens with an X Series camera body offering Phase Detection AF. Combined with the near-silent shutter sound, photos can be taken unnoticed in quiet locations.
As AF operates using a signal from the imaging sensor, extremely high-precision focusing is possible.
With a minimum working distance of 1m for the entire zoom range, this lens is also great for close ups.
The best image stabilisation performance in its class
Thanks to a high-performance gyro sensor and unique algorithm that cancels drift due to temperature changes, the FUJINON LENS XF50-140mmF2.8 R LM OIS WR delivers the best image stabilisation performance in its class. Combined with a bright F2.8 aperture, handholding is now possible in new areas for a telephoto zoom.
Weather resistant, dust-resistant and -10°C low-temperature operation
By applying seals to each portion of the barrel, the lens is weather-resistant, dust-resistant and -10°C low-temperature operation, making it the perfect companion for the FUJIFILM X-T1, which has the same levels of protection.
High build quality and comfortable operation
Both the focus and aperture rings are metal, plus metal is also used on the exterior of the lens body for a high-quality finish. Thanks to long-term experience and broaden know-how for other top-end professional lens fields such as Broadcasting and CinemaScope, the texture and torque on the rings makes for comfortable shooting. The lens mount is made from brass for improved strength.
Combined with a camera body, the lens is approximately 60% of the weight of a full-size system*5, considerably reducing the burden on the photographer.
The AF+MF function enables seamless manual focusing. After pressing the shutter to autofocus on the subject, fine adjustments can then be made using the manual focus ring.
