At the Bench: Fujinon MK50-135 Lens

The other day I had the chance to get a peek at the new Fujinon MK50-135 zoom lens. This lens compliments the recently-announced MK18-55 (watch Matt Porwoll’s video on the 18-55, part of his Behind the Lens documentary zoom series).

The 50-135 shares many of the attributes of its wide angle companion: it is parfocal, meaning that it maintains focus through its entire zoom range, and as well maintains a T 2.9 stop from wide to tight. Macro focusing – down to 2′ 9″ – and a back focus adjustment are available as well. Watch my video above to get a closer look at the MK50-135 as well as some test footage.
