Fujifilm announces the development of the new FUJINON Premista 19-45mm T2.9 wide-angle cine zoom lens. According to Fujifilm, the lens is expected to arrive sometime in early 2021. 

This will be the third lens to join the prestigious Premista full-frame cine zoom family. At the moment, the Premista range includes a 28-100mm and an 80-250mm.

Wide-Angle Cine Zoom for Large Format Digital Cinema

In addition, the upcoming lens has been designed to cover large format digital sensors such as those in the Sony VENICE and Alexa MINI LF. The lens has a large image circle with a 46.3mm diameter, ensuring coverage on full-frame/large format cine cameras.

Furthermore, the lens reduces distortion at wide-angle focal lengths thanks to its advanced optical design. Fuji lenses are known for their pleasing and natural look. Hence why the new Premista will be optimised to match the rest of the range, in addition to their Cabrio and Premier zooms.

Lightweight and Compact Design

The upcoming Premista 19-45mm will be a fantastic companion lens to the all-rounder 28-100mm and even the telephoto 80-250mm. Thus enabling DPs to cover 95% of focal lengths with just three lenses – from 19mm all the way to 250mm. 

In addition, the optical formula includes large-diameter aspherical lens elements and a unique zooming system. This helps the lens achieve edge-to-edge sharpness.

And more so, the lens also benefits from a compact design with an overall length of 230mm and a weight of just 3.3kg.

Moreover, the Premista 19-45mm supports the ZEISS eXtended Data protocol for metadata for more efficient post-production.
