The XF200mmF2 R LM OIS WR is the first super-fast telephoto lens in the XF lens lineup, offering a fast maximum f-stop of 2.0 and a focal length equivalent to 305mm in 35mm film format. Taking advantage of technologies synonymous with FUJINON lenses, this new telephoto lens boasts exceptional image clarity with the ability to produce beautiful bokeh, making it the perfect choice for shooting sports and wildlife.
The XF200mmF2 R LM OIS WR lens is compatible with the high performance FUJINON XF1.4X F2 TC WR teleconverter, which extends the focal length of the lens by 1.4 times. The teleconverter allows the lens to cover a focal length equivalent to 427mm at F2.8.
Offering outstanding performance and beautiful bokeh
The lens is made of 19 elements in 14 groups, including one large-diameter super ED lens element and two large-diameter ED lens elements to minimize chromatic aberration. High-precision polishing technology, developed for broadcast lenses, has been used to prepare the large-diameter lens elements to achieve outstanding image-resolving performance and creamy bokeh. This element is produced with an accuracy of less than 0.1μm and High-speed AF is made possible thanks to the lightweight focus lens group and the use of linear motors.
Powerful image stabilization performance
The lens offers 5.0-stop image stabilization performance in accordance with CIPA. The lens recognizes shooting conditions, e.g. panning or on tripod, and automatically applies optimum image stabilization control.
Easy AF operation
'Focus Preset Function' instantaneously changes the focus to a preset position to capture your main subject with ease without having to make focal readjustments.
'Focus Range Selector' switch limits the shooting distance range for autofocusing. Activating this function narrows down the range of shooting distance and delivers high-speed AF when shooting a subject at the distance of 5 meters or greater.
'The Focus Control' button is positioned at the tip of the lens barrel. Use the Focus Select switch to assign a function of your choice, such as Focus Preset, AF-ON and Focus Lock.
Fast, silent, and highly accurate autofocus
The lens uses linear motors to achieve fast, silent, and high-precision AF performance. There is also a new mechanism that fixes the focus motor group when the camera is not in use, which reduces any vibrations that may occur from the linear motors’ magnets being disengaged.
Advanced durability able to withstand various shooting conditions
The lens is lightweight yet robust, thanks to its magnesium alloy construction. The barrel is sealed in 17 places to make the lens resistant to dust, moisture, and low temperatures down to -10 degrees Celsius. The front lens element is coated with fluorine to repel water and dirt, adding extra durability so that the lens can be used outdoors with peace of mind (within reason). The matte silver colour reduces the risk of the lens overheating under intense summer temperatures. The paintwork is designed to diffuse light which prevents the lens from generating strong light reflections.
