FUJINON MK 18-55MM AND MK 50-135MM ZOOM LENSES LAUNCHED AT ASC CLUBHOUSE



The new lenses were presented to a selected group of media professionals by the Optical Devices Division of FUJIFILM, with the participation of cinematographers Nancy Schreiber ASC, Bill Benett ASC, Eric Longden, Joe Slavin and Izzy Isidor Maxwell Pollak. 

 Fujinon’s MK 18-55 T2.9 is an affordable, lightweight, compact zoom lens intended for the rapidly growing independent owner-operator market. The MK 18-55 T2.9 is the first in a new series of Fujinon affordable E-mount zooms. (MK 50-135 T2.9 comes next.) The MK zoom only comes in E-mount (18mm flange focal depth) and represents a growing affirmation of a lens interface that was introduced by Sony.

 Cinematographers and the Optical Devices Division of FUJIFILM gathered 
at the ASC clubhouse to launch the new MK series of cinema lenses, 
the MK 18-55mm zoom lens and the MK 50-135mm zoom lens.

The front diameter is a mere 85 mm and has 82mm threads for a front screw-in filter. There’s a Macro button for close focus to 1 ft 2.9 in / 0.38 m. You don’t need shims; a thumbscrew enables flange focal depth adjustment. (Once set, tape the barrel to avoid accidentally moving it.) Accessories include a lens support foot and rectangular lens shade.
