Estimated Price of GF 110mmF2, GF 45mmF2.8 and GF23mmF4

So, how much will the next GF lenses cost? At this stage, I want to make clear that an estimated price has been set by Fujifilm, but it’s not final… as so often, changes can be made until the last second.

I’m in talk with sources, who asked me to wait for the final price tag. All that seems sure for now, is that Fuji would like to keep the price of the GF 110mmF2 below $3,000.

However, some prices already surfaced on the web.

  • Fujinon GF 23mmF4 = $2599
  • Fujinon GF 45mmF2.8 = $1699
  • Fujinon GF 110mmF2 = $2799

Again… take it with a grain of salt, since Fujifilm is known to change price tag anytime, even after the announcement of gear, like it happened with the X70, where the price was lowered 3 days after pre-orders were already open.

I’ll let you know as soon as I get the final price from sources.

BREAKING :: GF 110mm F2 Release in May :: Capture One WILL Support the Fujifilm GFX :: Fujifilm GFX First Impressions!

Capture One GFX Support

I got the first hint here at the Fujifilm GFX facebook group: GFX member Theodoros had a talk with a Fuji rep, who promised him that Capture One will support the Fujifilm GFX – read this thread here.

Only a rumor you say? You need more?

Well, then you can add this one: in his recently published GFX review, popular X-photographer Patrick La Roque says that he knows Capture One WILL support the Fujifilm GFX… and Patrick is definitely someone, who has the right contacts to be able to claim that.

GFX First Impressions

So yes, Patrick published his GFX First impressions. I know some of you say that reviews of official X-photographers should be taken with a grain of salt, but I don’t really think so. These are guys, who perfectly master their X-gear and are super-familiar with it. If they criticise a Fuji camera, it’s for sure not because they missed to read the manual and don’t know, how to use or set the camera properly (which I’ve seen very often on youtube-reviews).

And btw, Patrick La Roque is the same guy, who at the day when Fujifilm announced the X-M1, wrote a review, where he demolished the X-M1, saying that he does not like it all and it’s the most uninspiring piece of gear Fujifilm ever produced. So Patrick has proven not to be afraid to say what he thinks.

So here are some considerations he made in his great first impressions:

  • I’ve been told it WILL be supported by Phase One
  • What has me most excited is the overall smoothness of the image. It’s very hard to explain but when I compare to similar images shot with previous cameras, there’s less edge, more fluidity.
  • Very impressed by the zoom’s performance and leaning towards the wider range it offers

Patrick also tells us that the GF 110mm f/2 will be released in May. Go to laroquephoto.com to read more.

Fujifilm Plans Fujinon XF 18mm F2 Mark II Lens (SRP)

Fujinon XF 18mm F2 Mark II

According to a source, right in the past (SRP), the Fujinon XF 18mm F2 Mark II is high on Fuji’s “To Do” list.

We recently launched the Ultimate X-Series Lens Poll here on FujiRumors. In case you missed it, check out the results here. All I will anticipate now is that the Fujinon XF 18mm F2 Mark II is indeed very high on the FR-community wish-list (currently #5 out of 30 lenses).

I owned the XF 18mm F2, but sold it to get some money to buy the 12mm Samyang and the Fujinon XF 18-135. My reasoning was that I don’t really need it anymore, owning the 18-55 and 18-135 that cover the 18mm focal length. However, I have to say that I regret selling it, since I miss the compact size of the 18/2. I was almost about to pull the trigger on the 27mm pancake to finally have a very compact lens again, but after this rumor I guess I will hold on a little bit more… ;)

The XF18mmF2 was also Nate’s choice for his One Year, One Lens World Travel.

First Images of Fujifilm GFX Adapters for Leica M, Zeiss Otus, Mamiya, Schneider-Kreuznach + Focal Plane Shutter Advantage ;)

GFX + Otus 85mm f1.4

GFX ADAPTERS

Did I tell you already, that there is some awesome stuff going on at the Fujifilm GFX facebook group? ;)

Well, here is another interesting thing, spotted by GFX facebook member Issa.

He spotted images of several adapters for the Fujifilm GFX at a Chinese website, I can’t access to (only registered members can), but Issa was so nice to share them with us on the GFX facbeook page here.

The images show the following lenses adapted to the GFX (sample images are included)

I guess these are prototypes Fujifilm is currently developing (in addition to the Hasselblad H adapter that has already been launched along with the GFX). Here is the GFX facebook post that shows all the adapters .

Now that’s the good part of having a focal plane shutter… you can use any lens on the GFX and adds flexibility to the system :-)

Fujinon XF 33mm F1.0 No Longer on Fujifilm’s Internal Roadmap … GAME OVER for Fuji’s Super Fast Lens?

Fujinon XF 33mm F1.0

Back in 2015, I told you here that Fujifilm had plans to develop the Fujinon XF 33mm F1.0 lens.

But something changed in 2016, when I told you here that the terrific success of the XF35mmF2 WR convinced Fujifilm to focus on compact and weather sealed lenses. Also, the GFX + GF lenses came along, and Fuji had to put lots of R&D into the development of a complete new system.

As a consequence, the development of the XF33mmF1.0 had been pushed back (as well as the one of the XF8-16 and 200mm).

So, in these days, I’ve tried to understand what happened with these 3 long rumored lenses. I was able to confirm, that the XF 8-16 is on Fujifilm internal roadmap and is scheduled to be the lens to come after the XF80mmF2.8 1:1 Macro.

But here comes the bad news:

I had a talk with a long-term trusted sources about the Fujinon XF 33mm F1.0. The source told me, that, at this stage, the XF33mmF1.0 is no longer on Fujifilm’s internal roadmap. Hence, the source has big doubts it will ever come.

If you have something to say to Fujifilm about it, this is the moment to say it…. because remember… they do read you ;)

So what do you think… should we start to make some pressure just as we did with the X-E3?
