Fujinon Bows XA50X9.5B ESM-D HD Telephoto Lens

Fujinon introduced the XA50X9.5B ESM-D HD telephoto lens, which boasts the same optics as the XA50X9.5 lens it introduced at NAB, but which is designed for “hard” cameras, or electronic-newsgathering cameras that use system expanders.

The company says the XA50X9.5B ESM-D was designed for smaller venues and applications that do not require extremely high magnification, adding that the lens is ideal for basketball arenas and certain camera positions in other professional and collegiate sports coverage, as well as houses of worship and corporate events.

Fujinon says the XA50X9.5B ESM-D offers 50X magnification and a 9.5 to 475mm focal length, coupled with excellent F stop ramping characteristics, and a remote control 2X extender is standard. The maximum relative aperture is 1.7 from 9.5 to 311mm and only 2.6 at 475mm, and the minimum object distance is 9.8 feet from the front of the lens.
