The new 90mm F/2.0 Macro lens will feature a circular aperture behind a lens design that includes 11 elements in 8 groupings, making use of three ED glass elements. The macro lens will also be dust and water resistant, and feature a 62mm filter thread.
We don’t have any word yet on the pricing or availability of the upcoming lens, but no doubt that information will be available on the 18th (this upcoming Monday). The leaked X-T10 is also expected to be announced on the 18th along with this new XF 90mm F/2.0 Macro lens.
I feel like a 90mm Macro lens is a great prime lens choice from Fuji. The 90mm focal length is both far enough for macro photography that you will not need to be right up on top of your subject, and it is also very similar in FOV to the ever popular 85mm focal length, making this a great portrait lens as well. It looks to be a great multi-purpose offering from Fuji.
Stay tuned and we will keep you updated on any more Fuji rumors that break ahead of the expected announcement on May 18th.
