FUJIFILM Corporation has unveiled its new Premista series of large format cinema zoom lenses.

The Premista series will make its debut at ASC Clubhouse today and will be on show at NAB next week.

The FUJINON Premista 28-100mm T2.9 (“Premista 28-100mm”) will launch to the market in summer 2019, followed by the launch of the FUJINON Premista 80-250mm T2.9-3.5 (“Premista 80-250mm”) before the end of 2019. Together, the lenses will cover the most frequently- used focal lengths from 28mm to 250mm. 


The Premista 28-100mm has a constant T2.9 speed across the entire zoom range and the Premista 80-250mm has a constant T2.9 speed from 80-200mm, before gradually ramping less than a full stop to T3.5 between 201-250mm. They will both have a minimum image circle of 46.3mm which provides full coverage of all of the current large format digital cinema cameras available. 

The Premista 28-100mm is a standard zoom lens that covers 28-100mm focal lengths. Since this is normally covered by 6 different prime lenses, the lens can help to save time caused by frequently changing lenses on productions.

The Premista 80-250mm will complement the Premista 28-100mm by having identically matched colour balance, as well as matched focus, zoom and iris ring locations and by being the same weight. 

The FUJINON Premista 28-100mm T2.9 will be available to test and rent through rental houses from August 2019. It will also be available to purchase through CVP with an SRP of £30,000. 

The FUJINON Premista 80-250mm T2.9-3.5 is planned to be available before the end of 2019
