Fujifilm has announced a pair of ‘MK’ Super 35 cinema lenses for Sony’s E-mount, with a 18-55mm T2.9 launching next month, followed by a 50-135mm T2.9 arriving this summer. In addition to the E-mount versions, which are designed for Super 35 or APS-C sensors, Fujifilm will be releasing the same lenses for X-mount by the end of the year.

Both lenses are exactly the same size – 85mm tall and 206mm long – and each weighs 980 g. They also share the same front diameter (85mm), filter diameter (82mm), number of aperture blades (9) and gear ring location. As you might imagine, the rings handle iris, zoom and focus distance. In addition, the flange distance can be adjusted for use on different cameras.

The lenses are designed to reduce focus point shift, lens breathing and optical axis shifts. The minimum object distance is 0.85m for the 18-55 and 1.2m for the 50-135, with macro functions bringing those numbers down to 0.38m and 0.85m, respectively.

As mentioned above, the 18-55mm T2.9 will be first out of the gate next month, with a list price of $3799. Pricing for for 50-135mm T2.9 was not announced.
