After testing the model HK4.7x18 (18-85mm, T2) supplied by Fujinon Fujifilm's representative in Sweden Hofmann Teknik AB and performed by key personnel in the production, it became clear that they wanted to rent this zoom.

The test was conducted in close cooperation with the rental company Kameraten in Stockholm which at an early stage showed interest in this zoom series in connection with a road tour that Hofmann Teknik AB arranged this spring.

The choice fell on the zoom as it matches the set of Arri Master Primes already used on this production. Fujinon has continued to challenge the ultimate in performance on the market and with this series, they have achieved this goal!
