Compact and lightweight design
Thanks to a weight of less than 1.4kg, the strain of shooting handheld has been substantially reduced. When mounted to an X-T1 body, the combined weight is below 2kg, so it's easier to keep moving while shooting. What's more, the weight distribution of the lens when attached to a body makes it feel lighter than it really is.
Water / dust resistance, -10°C low-temperature operation and fluorine coating
The lens features 13 water and dust resistant seals at 12 points, allowing you to shoot with confidence in tough outdoor environments. The fluorine coating applied to the front lens element is water repellent so it's less susceptible to smudges and can easily be cleaned.
Lens hood with a polarizing filter window and lock mechanism
The lens hood features a sliding window so a polarizing filter can still be accessed even when the hood is in place. The hood also features a locking mechanism to keep securely attached to the lens.
Compatible with the 1.4x Teleconverter
The lens offers compatibility with the XF1.4X TC WR teleconverter. When attached, it becomes a 140-560mm F6.3-8 or 213-853mm (35mm format equivalent). Phase detection AF shooting remains possible, even at F8.
