Debunking Fake Rumors :: There will be NO new Zeiss lens announcement next week!

Zeiss

There will be a Zeiss announcement next week. Some sites are saying it will be about a new lens… and some even think there will be new Fuji X mount lenses.

I’m sorry folks, but our friends from mirrorlessrumors say it clearly: no new lens coming next week… and I trust them!

So don’t put too much hope into new Zeiss lenses for Fuji X mount in future.

The biggest problem, for any other lens manufacturer (including Zeiss) is: Fujinon glass is too good and covers 85% of the needs of photographers… of course not all needs, because I KNOW YOU GUYS WANT THE XF23mmF2!!! 🙂

Trusted Japanese Source says: “No Fujifilm X40 on the horizon”. Is the Fuji X30 the last of the line?

The first in the line, the Fujifilm X10, is now available for only $299!

I get this questions quite often via email: when will Fujifilm launch the Fuji X40?

Well, according to what the Top Trusted Japanese Source told me in our chat yesterday, Fujifilm has currently no plans at all to make it.

So what… is the Fujifilm X30 really the last of its line? At the moment it looks like this. But in the meantime you guys know Fujifilm. right? Plans can change so quickly at the Fuji Headquarter, that you should take every single long term rumor with a grain of salt, even if it comes from trusted sources.  An example is the Fuji X70, planed by Fujifilm in 2013 (rumor here), then canceled and finally announced in 2016.

So nobody, not even the trusted Japanese source can 100% exclude that there will ever be, one day, eventually, an X40. But at the moment Fujifilm is focusing on other stuff (Medium Format Fuji anyone?).

A few days ago, here on FujiRumors we have leaked the first real life images of the Fujifilm X-T2 (no fake, don’t worry).

Now it’s high time to take a closer look at them, and see all the changes Fujifilm made over the X-T1.

NOTE: these are not rumors, just my observations/speculations based on the (real) leaked Fujifilm X-T2 images.

  1. the dials on the X-T2 seem to be thicker compared to the X-T1
  2. addition of center-weighted metering
  3. the focus assist button of the X-T1 is gone. I guess Fuji made the rear dial clickable and it will work as focus assist, just like it is on the X-Pro2
  4. no flimsy accessory door (already improved on the X-Pro2)
  5. New tilt screen (probably flex tilt-screen like the Pentax K1)
  6. joystick
  7. The new dual SD-card door has a new opening mechanism.
  8. The last thing I’ve noticed is that the lock button on the ISO dial looks different compared to the one on the X-T1. It actually looks like if there were two buttons. Maybe this mechanism could allow us to block also the “drive dial” under the ISO dial. However, the “double button” could also be just an optical illusion created by a water drop.

Reminders:

  1. Photokina is the most important photography show in the world. At Photokina every camera manufacturer will display its very best products. Any yet, the X-T2 will NOT be announced at Photokina (late September), but in late June / early July.
  2. Fujifilm itself said the X-T2 will have 4K.
