FUJINON MKX18-55mmT2.9 is a cinema zoom lens that makes it possible to use FUJIFILM X Series cameras to create films that wouldnt look out of place on the silver screen. Its dedicated cine lens design, based on over 70 years experience of manufacturing lenses for high-end production, ensures lens breathing is virtually undetectable and there is next-to-no shift in focus when the focal length is changed. FUJINON Cine lenses are renowned globally for how they reproduce skin tones with neutral and consistent color balance. With such amazing image quality and gentle focus fall-off into beautiful bokeh, this wide to standard zoom can be used for many different shooting scenes from wide establishing shots to closed-in headshots. Pair it with MKX50-135mmT2.9 to create a set of lenses that covers a broad range of focal lengths, suitable for a various number of applications.

This high-performance optical cine lens minimizes focus and optical axis shift while zooming to help create smooth transitions and requires no shims to adjust flange focal distance. It also has the same weight, size, and ring positions as other MK lenses. This makes switching lenses on set easier and more efficient because accessories do not need to be readjusted between swaps.

This lens has an image circle that covers the Super 35 Format and offers a versatile range of focal lengths, making it great for a broad variety of subjects and scenes. Paired with the focus ring's 200 of rotation, smooth and gradual focus pulls are a possiblity at any focal length.

Offering a T2.9 aperture across the entire zoom range, which is great for low-light scenes, the lens's cinema-style 0.8 pitch aperture ring also gives cinematographers the utmost control in creating images creatively. Bokeh and depth of field can be dialed in to within a fraction of a T-stop to meet the needs of specific creative visions.

This lens has a close focusing distance of 3.3in (0.85m) at its widest focal length, adding another way for cinematographers to be creative with their framing and composition.
