Fujifilm is set to release a 10-24mm lens in March 2014 u2013 around a year after it was first scheduled to go on sale.

The XF 10-24mm f/4 R OIS – priced £849.99 – delivers the 35mm viewing angle equivalent of a 15-36mm.

Features include a seven-blade diaphragm, four aspherical lenses, three extra-low dispersion elements and a minimum working distance of 24cm.

Fuji claims that the 14-elements-in-10-groups lens is the ‘perfect choice for shooting dynamic, high-impact landscape images with maximum detail from the foreground to the far distance’.

The firm adds: ‘Thanks to lightweight internal lenses and the addition of a stepping motor, the XF 10-24mm lens is also very quiet to use.’

The X-mount lens was originally expected out in spring 2013.

It was first announced in September 2012.
