Fujinon to showcase new HD telephoto lens

Fujinon will make the U.S. debut of its new XA88x8.8BESM HD telephoto lens, featuring 88X magnification with a focal length of 8.8mm to 777mm telephoto, at NAB2007.

The lens is available with Fujinon's Precision Focus Assist (PFA), which addresses precise focus issues in HDTV production stemming from the format's shallow depth of focus and the lack of size and resolution in camera viewfinders.

The XA88x8.8 is equipped with Fujinon's GO-Technology, which improves image resolution and chromatic aberrations at all focal lengths. Multiple aspherical lens elements are incorporated, with three zoom groups, enabling optimal optical quality over the entire zoom range.
