New Gear: Fujifilm X-T10 Camera and XF90mm F/2 R LM WR Lens

A new flagship for Fujifilm

Jeanette D. Moses

The Fujifilm X-T10 comes just a few days after the firmware update for the X-T1 and takes full advantage of those powerful autofocus upgrades.

The X-T10 has two new focus modes Zone and Wide/Tracking, which both use 77 autofocus points to help with photographing moving objects. In Zone mode photographers have the ability to select 3x3, 3x5 or 5x5 zones, while in Wide/Tracking the camera automatically selects the areas of the subject that are in focus and tracks it across the 77-points. Wide/Tracking mode is designed to help latch onto subjects that may move vertically, horizontally or back and forth. The X-T10 has a 16.3 Megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS II sensor, built in phase detection autofocus and a EXR Processor II.

Like all of Fuji’s recent X-series products, the X-T10 has a classic design. The body is made of die-cast magnesium and has aluminum dials that give the camera a vintage feel. A pop up flash is integrated into the center top of the X-T10, the camera has a wide 25 degree viewfinder and a 3 inch 920K-dot tilting LCD monitor. Another new feature on the X-T10 is the Auto Mode Switch lever, which makes it simple to switch the camera into the fully-automatic Advanced SR Auto mode.

The X-T10 comes in black and silver and will be available in June. The camera will be sold in three configurations: body only for $799.95, with a XC16-50mm lens for $899.95 or with a XF18-55mm lens for $1,099.95.

Also announced today is the Fujinon XF90mmF2 R LM WR prime lens. The weather-resistant lens has a fast maximum 7-blade aperture of f/2 and is constructed of 11 elements in 8 groups (three with ED glass elements) to create a really nice bokeh. It has a minimum working distance of 24 inches and a new Quad Linear Motor for autofocus that responds in 0.14 seconds. The XF90mmF2 R LM WR is compatible with all of Fujifilm’s X-Series ILCs.

The Fujinon XF90mmF2 R LM WR will be available in July and will retail for $949.95.
