Fujifilm X Lenses for Infrared Photography

This is a list of Fujifilm X mount lenses suitable for infrared photography. When shooting infrared, some lenses will display hot spots in the center of the image. While some mild hot spots can be edited out of an image during editing, it is preferred to avoid shooting with lenses or at apertures that produce hot spots. Using lower-numbered f-stops can reduce or elimiate hot spots with some lenses.

Warning: Infrared photography utilizes camera lenses designed for visible light, not infrared light, combined with various filters types from various manufacturers. While the lenses on this list have been reported to work well with infrared photography from at least one source, this is not a guarantee. Links may be affiliate links.

  1. This lens does not support front lens threaded filters.  2 3 4 5 6 7 8

  2. The Venus Optics Laowa 9mm f/2.8 Zero-D supports filters with a 49mm filter thread. When using a larger-sized filter with step-up rings, the rings may be visible due to the extreme wide angle of the lens. Recommend using only 49mm filters with this lens.  2
