Recently Fujifilm showed off their new camera, the Fujifilm X-T1. The new camera is scheduled to release on March 7, 2014 and I have to say this camera looks like a winner. The X-series is Fujifilm’s first die-cast magnesium, weather-resistant camera.
Along with the camera being weather-resistant, the three lens launching with the camera are also weather-resistant zoom lenses. Those lenses are the XF 18-135mm f3.5-5.6 R OIS WR, XF 16-55mm f2.8 R OIS WR, and the XF 50-140mm f2.8 R OIS WR. Image Source: Fujifilm.
