Just when you thought it was safe to leave your wallet in your pocket, Fuji go and release two fantastic lenses at either end of the focal spectrum, which have us Fujinistas salivating! At the extreme end of the scale, the Fujinon XF90mm F/2 R LM WR is the lens a lot of professionals have been waiting for. A true 135mm full frame equivalent, capable of producing stunning images with the usual Fuji flare, as seen in other lenses such as the 56mm f/1.2.
Reviews appear to regard the Fuji in the highest esteem as you’d come to expect and no doubt it’s going to be on a lot of people’s Summer shopping list.

It comes hot on the heels of the recent release of the Fujifilm FUJINON XF 16 mm F 1.4 R WR Lens. A wide angle full frame 24mm equivalent, which provides stunning optical performance and a minimum working distance of just 15cm.
Both lenses are weather resistant, and although not featuring any kind of image stabilisation, the maximum aperture achievable on both lenses should enable most photographers to shoot fast enough, even in low light situations.

I’m confident both lenses will prove to be particularly popular with professionals and amateurs alike, and gives Fuji an excellent line up of fast aperture lenses along with the XF23mmF1.4 R, XF35mmF1.4 R, XF56mmF1.2 R, and XF56mmF1.2 R APD lens
