Fujifilm has announced a few new additions to their X-mount lens roadmap. In addition to the lenses they’ve already announced in 2014 and the known upcoming lenses for 2015 and 2016, they’ve added two new lenses, a teleconverter and given more details on a ‘Super Telephoto Zoom’ that’s appeared on Fuji’s previous roadmap.

The first of the two new lenses is an XF 120mm f/2.8 telephoto macro lens, which will provide a 1:1 magnification ratio. The second is an XF 35mm f/2 ‘R’ lens, designed to be a standard, lightweight lens for everyday use.

As for the teleconverter, it’s a 1.4x teleconverter for Fuji’s current XF 50–140mm f/2.8 R LM OIS WR in addition to the upcoming XF 120mm f/2.8 R Macro and XF 100–400mm lenses.

The ‘Super Telephoto Zoom’ that’s been previously shown on Fuji’s lens roadmap now has an official focal length range of 150–600mm (35mm equivalent). Details on aperture and other features are still unknown, but we’ll be sure to update you when they are announced.
