When Fuji announced Firmware 4.0 for the X-T1, many X-shooters made the same question of FXF Member Sodela in this thread: “Are there plans for releasing an update for the E2 lke the 4.0 for the X-T1??”… a very Hot discussion, check it out here.

Well, we have a first official statement of Fujifilm France, who said via facebook, that:

“Following the announcement of the updated firmware of the x-T1, We received a lot of requests for an update to the x-E2. In response to these requests, we plan to publish an update to the x-E2 as soon as possible. The date of publication is not yet fixed and will depend on the changes made by this update, that we will define from the requests of our users.

This [X-E2 firmware] is possible because we know that our Japanese engineers are working on it

Fujifilm France is more sceptical to what belongs a possible update for the X-M1: “I would not say this, but the X-M1 remains more marginal. We know that it is in the study.”

A source, who was right in the past (SRP), just gave me an update about the previously rumored super fast F1.0 lens.

The source said that it is true: Fujifilm is considering to make a super fast lens (at the moment planed as XF 33mmF1.0). The bad part of this rumor: it’s not a final decision of Fujifilm… plans could still be dropped.

So let’s help Fuji to make their final decision: do you think such a super-fast “prestige” lens (or call it “freak” lens) would be a good move by Fujifilm and how much you would eventually pay for it. And most important: how do we get away with buying the 33mmF1.0 and avoid divorce? An initial guide on How To Convince your better half can be found at our New Fuji X Forum… everyone can read it, and feel free to join the discussion with your own suggestions ;) .

Do you want Fuji to offer a Super-Fast XF 33mmF1.0 lens?

Let’s Drop The RUMOR-BOMB: Fujifilm is forging a MEDIUM FORMAT CAMERA (Source Right in Past) – WITH POLL

 photo mf_zpslgutjvrb.png

 photo asd_zps8aefhfnl.jpg

I have the long expected “OK” from the source, and so here it is, the hottest rumor I’ve every published. Just sit down before reading ;).

A source, who was right in the past (!!) told me that Fuji is forging, in secret, a Master Medium-Format Camera! (as some of you correctly guessed at the brand new Fuji X Forum… but some other great ideas amongst it, too. Just read them here if you want)

I know you are dazzled just like me. But I still recommend you to take the grain of salt for 2 reasons:

1) the source was right in the past, but is not yet trusted.
2) the Medium Format Fuji release is everything else but imminent. This is the real crazy variable… I’ve seen Fuji too many times changing plans, even after having tested prototypes. So I’ll wait for a trusted source feedback to be 99% sure.

For these two reasons I’m just 75% to 80% sure for now that it will come… again: the release is everything else but imminent!

And before you start saying it’s the usual FR BS, I’ve just checked all the rumors shared so far in 2015… out of 37 verifiable rumors shared in 2015, 34 were correct so far (91% correct). I really try to be accurate, folks.

Now, this is just the very beginning of the Medium Format rumor. Will it be something similar in design and size like Fuji’s glorious GF670? Or will it have more a design of the Medium Format Pentax 645D? Work in progress ;)

stay tuned,

Do you want Fuji to offer a Medium Format digital Camera?
