Fuji Officially Announces New 18-135mm Telephoto Zoom Lens

By Anthony Thurston on June 16th 2014

We talked about this rumored lens, and even showed you some leaked images of it yesterday, and the rumors were correct as Fuji officially unveiled the new 18-135mm late last night.

This new lens adds to Fuji‘s line of variable aperture telephoto zoom lenses, joining the Fuji 55-200mm and 50-230mm. The lens keeps that popular Fuji lens styling seen on all of Fuji‘s recent lenses as well as the same layout as the other telephoto zooms.

Fuji 18-135mm F/3.5-5.6 Specs

  • Fujifilm X-Mount
  • 27-206mm (35mm Equivalent)
  • Four Aspherical and Two ED Elements
  • Super EBC Lens Coating
  • Five-Stop-Effective Image Stabilization
  • Inner Focusing System & Linear AF Motor
  • Weather-Sealed Construction
  • Filter Thread: 67mm

The lens was rumored to cost $1000, but luckily those were off a bit and the new lens will actually come in at $899.95. The lens is available for pre-order now over on B&H.

    I’m always glad to see Fuji adding to the lens lineup but I’m really not anymore interested in this lens any more than I am for a DSLR variable aperture super zoom.

    The 56/1.2 was a very nice step in the right direction and I know plenty of photographers are making the full time leap to Fuji but I really can’t entertain it until we get a 135/2 or 200/2.8 equivalent. I have to have a long fast lens for ceremonies.
