FUJIFILM Launches the X-E4 Mirrorless Camera, XF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Lens, and Redesigned XF 27mm Lens; More Info at B&H
Photography News: FUJIFILM has rolled out a trio of products for its X-Series APS-C mirrorless family--the new X-E4 rangefinder-style camera, the XF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 R LM OIS WR telephoto zoom lens, and a redesigned XF 27 f/2.8 R WR pancake lens.
The FUJIFILM X-E4 is armed with the same 26.1MP X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor that is in the company's flagship X-Series cameras—the X-T4 and X-Pro3—but this sensor is now living in the smaller and sleeker X-E rangefinder-styled body. Besides a new sensor, this latest generation X-E camera also features a 3.0" 1.62m-dot, 180° forward-tilting LCD touchscreen and sports a 2.36m-dot OLED EVF. Autofocus has been clocked at 0.02 seconds and functions down to -6 EV for true low-light use. Equally at home capturing stills or video, the X-E4 records both DCI and UHD 4K at up to 30p in 4:2:0 8-bit color to an SD card or 4:2:2 10-bit color to an external device via HDMI. The camera can also make super-slow motion Full HD videos at 240p.
The new XF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 R LM OIS WR is a versatile lens, designed to give the telephoto reach demanded by nature and landscape photographers in a portable, hand-holdable form factor weighing just 1.5 lb and measuring 5.2" long. Offering an equivalent 107-457mm focal length range, this reach is benefitted by an advanced optical design that includes a pair of ED elements to suppress chromatic aberrations and color fringing throughout the zoom range for high clarity and color accuracy. A close minimum focusing distance of 2.7' suits working with nearby subjects, and the lens is also compatible with both the XF 1.4x TC WR and XF 2x TC WR teleconverters to extend its reach even further. Balancing the optics and improving handheld shooting is an Optical Image Stabilization system that compensates for up to 5.5 stops of camera shake, and the lens is also dust and moisture resistant and can operate in temperatures as low as 14°F.
On the other end of the lens spectrum is the new, redesigned XF 27mm f/2.8 R WR, which serves as an update to the popular pancake XF 27mm f/2.8. A lens that has always been popular with photographers looking to travel light and blend into their surroundings, this compact prime adds a couple new features to make it an even more useful lens: 1) a marked aperture ring that functions even when the camera and lens are powered off and 2) weather sealing. With a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 41mm, this lens strikes a balance between the traditional 35mm and 50mm focal lengths and gives street, travel, and everyday photographers a light and unobtrusive optical tool for creating images.
