Stature Films Takes First Delivery of Fujiinon MK50-135mm in N America

Fujifilm announces the first North American customer of its recently released Fujinon MK50-135mm T2.9 zoom. Toronto-based Stature Films, best known for its commercial and documentary production, was an early adopter of MK Series.

Commenting on his purchase of the Fujifilm lenses Andrew Sorlie, Creative Director, Stature Films said, “We bought two MK18-55’s as soon as we heard about them. Immediately our previous DSLR lenses started collecting dust. We couldn’t be happier with the 18-55’s performance. We love the richness they bring to our images, and a huge plus is the fact that they don’t breathe. So, when we heard the MK50’s were available, we didn’t hesitate for a second. Given the combined range of 18-135mm and their performance, we knew we’d be able to cover everything we need - wide angles, tight close ups, two-shots – with ease and style. And with just two lenses. We can’t wait to get out in the field and use this new glass on our next project.”

First on the docket for the new MK50-135 is a shoot in the province of New Brunswick for a national ad campaign for the New Brunswick Department of Tourism. Stature Films is also in pre-production on its third feature-length documentary.

The entire “MK” series is designed with the ‘emerging’ cinematographer in mind, whether shooting a live event, online programming, documentary, corporate video, wedding, independent or short film production. “MK” lenses are currently designed for Sony E-mount cameras and boast advanced optical performance, ultra-compact and lightweight design, as well as superb cost performance.

With a combined focal length range of 18mm-135mm, together the MK18-55mm and 50-135mm lenses cover the most frequently used range utilized by emerging cinematographers. The series offers fast lenses with T2.9 speed across the entire zoom range, enabling a shallow depth-of-field.
