LEAKED: First Images of Fujifilm X-T30 Dark Gray and Hands On Images of XF 16mm F2.8, XF 16-80mm F4 and GF 50mm F3.5

Fujifilm X-T30 Leak

The Fujifilm X-T30, to be announced on February 14 along with the Fujinon XF16mm f/2.8, will come not only in the traditional black and silver, but also in a Fujifilm X-Pro2 graphite alike color. You can see the first images here on FujiRumors as well some images of the upcoming XF 16mm f/2.8, XF 16-80mm f/4 and GF 50mm f/3.5 shared by dpreview.

Personally I was never really a super fan of the Fujifilm X-T30 design, but I must say this new color raises its “sexiness” quite a bit.

There will be a huge live blogging on February 14 (bigger than you think ;) ), so stay tuned on FujiRumors and follow us on Facebook, Instagram, RSS-feed and Twitter.

Fujinon XF 10-24mmF4 vs XF 8-16mmF2.8 (rated F2.8 but more Likely T3.5), XF35/1.4 vs XF35/2 – Fujinon XF Lens Review Roundup

Fujinon XF Lens Roundup

Fujifilm is currently running huge deals on some XF lenses (full list below).

So I have collected a bunch of Fujinon XF lens reviews to maybe help you out to make your decision if to grab one of the discounted lenses or not.

But before we go to the reviews, here is the list of official Fujifilm deals.

Overpriced Fujinon Lenses at Launch? Fujinon XF 8-16mm (save $500) and XF 200mm (save $1,000) and More XF Lens Deals

Fujifilm XF Pricing

We recently compared here the Fujinon XF8-16mmF1.8 and XF 200mm F2 to equivalent full frame DSLR lenses, and we saw that the Fujinon lenses are generally cheaper.

However, the Fujinon XF 8-16mm f/2.8 LM WR was still more expensive than the Sony FE 12-24mm f/4 or the Sigma 12-24mm f/4. You can check out the specs comparison here.

With the latest rebate, though, the Fujinon XF 8-16mm f/2.8 price has been reduced by 25%, and it now beats in terms of pricing also the other full frame lenses.

So the question arose amongst the FujiRumors community: was the Fujifilm XF 8-16mm f/2.8 overpriced at launch?

Difficult to say, since the price is justified or not also depending on factors you can’t really read on specs papers, like image quality, build quality and more.

At the bottom of this article you will find a poll, where you can let us know what you think.

Regarding the Fujinon XF200mm f/2 LM OIS WR, (which is now $1,000 off), I believe the XF200mmF2 launch price was not overpriced, considering how it performs and that it comes with 1.4x teleconverter. But let us know in the poll below.

The launch price of $2,000 for the Fujinon XF 8-16mmF2.8 was...

DEAL ALERT: Save Up to $1,000 on Fujifilm XF Lenses – Rebates Include XF 200mm f/2, XF 8-16mm f/2.8 and More

The best Fuji deals of the year are usually the ones between January and March, since the Japanese fiscal year ends in March, hence Fujifilm tries to sell as much as possible to show up with better numbers in front of investors.

So we get new Fujifilm deals, that will expire March 30.

Included in the deals is a $1,000 price drop on the XF200mm f/2 and the $500 savings on XF 8-16mm f/2.8. But there is much more, so check out the full list below.

Fujinon XF 8-16mm F2.8 and XF 200mm F2 Compared to Equivalent Full Frame Glass, Owner Manuals, Reviews and More

Fujinon APS-C vs Equivalent Full Frame Glass

The Fuji year 2018 saw the arrival of two high-end, fast and top quality lenses, the Fujinon XF200mm f/2 LM OIS WR and the Fujinon XF 8-16mm f/2.8 LM WR.

Both Fujinon lenses are still smaller, lighter and cheaper than perfectly equivalent full frame glass, as you can see in this comparison, where we compare the Fujifilm XF200mm f/2 (with 1.4 TC) versus the Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L and the Fujinon XF8-16mm f/2.8 with the Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L USM.

Check out the comparison here.

Price and size is one of the advantages of an APS-C system. For more advantages, read this article.

And as soon as the Fujinon XF33mm f/1.0 hits the market in 2020, Fuji’s APS-C system will have also an equivalent to something like the Nikkor 58mm f/1.4G and the Sigma 50mm f/1.4.

So, that was the fast glass.

But many people, who buy into an APS-C system, probably do it because they look for the best balance between size, weight, price and performance.

Lenses like the Fujinon XF 16mm f/2.8 (which will come soon) and the Fujinon XF 16-80mm f/4 (which will come later), perfectly fit into the philosophy of the “balance“. Great performance in a compact, flexible, portable and affordable package.

My prediction: Fujifilm will sell the XF16mmF2.8 and XF16-80mmF4 like hot cakes, just like they do with their f/2 trinity, the XF23mmF2, XF35mmF2 and XF50mmF2.

Good that Fujifilm is boosting up its lens production by 70%.

But today’s roundup is all for the big and fast guys, the Fujinon XF 8-16mm f/2.8 LM WR and Fujinon XF200mm f/2 LM OIS WR. Enjoy it.
