FUJINON has announced a new addition to their Premista family of zoom lenses that are designed to cover large format camera sensors. The new 19-45mm T2.9 is a lightweight wide-angle zoom that joins the 28-100mm T2.9 and the 80-250mm T2.9-3.5 Premista family. The lens is said to show very little distortion throughout the entire zoom range with accurate color rendition, and minimal ghosting for capturing high dynamic range. The Premista 19-45mm is scheduled for release in early 2021, price TBD.
Fujinon is also highlighting a new MK-R Conversion from Duclos Lenses for their MK zoom lenses. The new mount conversion service is available for the Fujinon MK 18-55mm T2.9 and the MK 50-135mm T2.9 zoom lenses. Once converted to Canon RF mount, the MK zooms can be used on a variety of RF mount camera bodies such as RED’s newest Super 35 format KOMODO 6K camera. The ultra lightweight and native mirrorless optical design of the Fujinon MK zooms makes them an ideal pairing with the KOMODO camera.
The conversion does not affect the manufacturer warranty and is entirely non-destructive. All of the original lens features including the adjustable back-focus and integrated macro function are also fully maintained. The mount is a no-compromise solution for using the Fujinon MK zooms on a Super 35 format RF mount camera.
Duclos Lenses will be offering the Fujinon MK zoom lenses with the MK-R mount installed and current owners of the MK zooms can have Duclos Lenses perform the conversion for $495. For customers that purchased their MK zooms from Duclos Lenses previously, the cost of the conversion will be discounted to $405. Duclos Lenses will begin shipping the Fujinon MK-R lenses mid-September.
