Fujifilm announces X-T30 II and new fast glass
Fujifilm has announced the X-T30 II and two new lenses, the XF 23mm f/1.4 and XF 33mm f/1.4.
The X-T30 II shares much in common with its predecessor, the X-T30, including the same APS-C-format 26.1MP X-Trans CMOS 4 BSI sensor and X-Processor 4 image processor, 2.36m-dot OLED EVF and 3.0″ 1.04m-dot two-way tilting LCD touchscreen, although this is now 1.62 million dots, an upgrade from the previous model.
The major upgrade comes to the AF system, which Fujifilm says is on par with the flagship Fujifilm X-T4. This means focusing speeds as fast as 0.02secs in conditions as dark as -7EV.
Videowise, you'll find 4K at 30p at 8 bit 4:2:0 onto an SD card, and 4K/30P video at 10 bit 4:2:2 to HDMI. There's also Full HD/240P high-speed video.
Finally, Fujifilm has also introduced two new XF lenses, the XF33mm R LM WR and the XF23mm R LM WR. The XF33mm has a weather-resistant build and is equivalent to 50mm in the 35mm film format. The 15-element lens measures 77.8mm long and weighs 360 grams.
The XF23mm is approximately 375 grams and has the same weather resistant build. Both should be available in late October.
The X-T30 II has an RRP of $1,599 AUD, the XF23mm $1,599 AUD and the XF33mm $1,429.
