The Fujinon MK18-55mm T2.9 is a lightweight cine-style zoom for Micro 4/3 cameras. Key features include:
Fast T2.9 clickless aperture
Geared focus, iris, and zoom rings
200° focus rotation and macro focusing mode
Featherweight. The first thing you’ll notice when you pick up the Fujinon MK18-55mm T2.9 for MFT is that it’s beyond light. It weighs in at just north of two pounds, which means you can mount it without an additional lens support. Its light weight also makes it a prime candidate for gimbal work.
High-Quality Optics. The lens features a fast T2.9 clickless aperture, controlled by nine rounded blades. It’s color matched to compliment Fujinon’s higher-end offerings, and the 28.5mm diameter image circle covers up to an APS-C/Super 35 sensor format with a 16:9 aspect ratio.
Cine Style. The MK18-55mm is truly a cinema lens with a full cinema feature set. The focus, iris, and zoom rings all have industry-standard 0.8 gears. The focus ring gives you precise control over pulls and follows with 200° of rotation, while the iris ring is de-clicked with a smooth action allowing you adjust exposure mid-shot. This lens has a short flange focal distance, but it allows flange focal distance adjustment so you can fine tune it to the camera you’re using. It offers a macro-focus mode that shortens the minimum focusing distance from roughly four feet to just under three feet.
Is this lens parfocal?
Yes. This lens is truly parfocal.
Are there any flare issues I should be aware of?
When shooting in bright sunlight and stopped down past T11, you may see a colored spot in your footage. That’s the sun reflecting off the sensor and then back off the rear element, causing an unwanted internal reflection. It’s just a part of the design. It’s best to shoot at larger apertures and use an ND filter instead.
Do you carry this lens in other mounts?
Yes, we also carry this lens in the Sony E mount.
Does this lens come equipped with focus gears?
Not only does this lens come equipped with focus gears, it also comes with geared iris and zoom controls. Each gear features an industry-standard 0.8 pitch.
