The Fujinon MKX18-55mm T2.9 for Fuji X is a lightweight cinema zoom for Fuji APS-C X-mount cameras. Key features include:
Featherweight. The first thing you’ll notice when you pick up the Fujinon MKX18-55mm T2.9 for Fuji X is that it’s beyond light. Weighing in at just north of 2 pounds means that this lens can be mounted without the need of an additional lens support apparatus when needed. It also makes it a prime candidate for gimbal work.
High Quality Optics. The lens features a fast T2.9 clickless aperture, controlled by nine rounded blades. It is color matched to complement higher end offerings from Fujinon, and the 28.5mm diameter image circle covers the APS-C / Super35 sensor format.
Cine Style. Unlike other Fuji X-mount lenses, the MKX 18-55mm is truly a cinema lens with a full cinema feature set. The focus, iris, and zoom rings all have a industry standard 0.8 MOD gears. The focus ring gives you precise control over pulls and follows with 200° of rotation, while the iris ring is declicked with a smooth action allowing you adjust exposure mid-shot. There’s also back-focus tuning to keep what’s in focus precisely sharp and a macro adjustment to get up close and personal with any subject.
Parfocal This term is thrown around a good bit, but many lenses that claim it are not truly parfocal. Instead, they’re close enough that many won’t notice. Well not this one. The MKX18-55mm is a true parfocal lens. Fujinon MKX18-55, Fujinon MKX 18-55, Fujinon MKX18-55mm, Fujinon MKX 18-55mm
