New Fujifilm lens roadmaps unveiled

Fujifilm gas updated its X Mount lens roadmap for the X Series line of mirrorless digital cameras. The latest roadmap adds two new lenses: the ultra-wide angle zoom lens XF 8-16 mm f/2.8 R LM WR and the telephoto prime lens XF 200 mm f/2 R LM OIS WR.

As well as announcing the Fujinon GF 45 mm f/2.8 R WR for the GFX 50S medium format mirrorless digital camera system, Fujifilm has unveiled a new G Mount lens roadmap.

This adds two new lenses: the GF 250 mm f/4 R LM OIS WR telephoto prime lens with a focal length equivalent to 198mm (in 35 mm format); and the GF 1.4X TC WR, a high-performance teleconverter multiplying the focal length by 1.4x. Compatible with the GF 250mm, the teleconverter provides a focal length of 350 mm (equivalent to 277 mm in the 35 mm format).

With the addition of the two lenses, the GF lens lineup now includes eight lenses.

Canon M100 here in October

The successor to the EOS M10 interchangeable lens camera is the EOS M100, designed to entice those looking to step up from smartphone photography. The camera sports a 24.2-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor and the Canon DIGIC 7 processor, plus Dual Pixel CMOS AF, which enables high-speed focusing.
