Fujinon MK 18-55 T2.9 Cine Coming Soon

The Fujinon MK 18-55 T2.9 is coming to X-Mount soon and many cinematographers/videographers can’t wait. The MK will be the first X-Mount cinema lens and should help the X system seriously compete with Sony’s a7 and a6xxx cameras. It’s a shame they didn’t launch the X and E-mount lenses together, but hopefully this will lead to more native cinema glass in the near future. There is also the possibility that the lenses release was held for a FS5/FS7 competitor since the lens was designed for that class of camera and might be a little over kill for the Fujifilm XT2/XT20.

Red Shark News – “Overall, optical performance is good or very good as it should be given the modest 3:1 zoom range. The minimum aperture can be used without reservation.”

    Ok disclaimer i am not going to do this. Question is; would there ever be a time to use one of these lenses for stills? I know there are better stills choices, not making a case that it would be better. Just curious if you would get a different look for stills. Thanks.

    • It could be a general purpose lens, but video lenses usually aren’t as high resolution as regular lenses. I always want to do video projects, but it’s been almost 20 years since I tried to take on anything serious. Lenses like this might make me give it a shot again…
