Coming in 2023: Yongnuo 23mmF1.4, 33mmF1.4 and 56mmF1.4 Autofocus Lenses for Fujifilm X

A few days ago we shared an image of a mysterious 33mm f/1.4 autofocus lens for Fujifilm X mount and we speculated it could be a Yongnuo lens.

Well, our speculations were correct. And moreover, this will not be the only AF lens coming from Yongnuo for Fujifilm.

Yongnuo will launch the following three lenses autofocus for Fujifilm X mount according to the Camerabeta at the Chinese Weibo social media here.

  • Yongnuo 23mm f/1.4
  • Yongnuo 33mm f/1.4
  • Yongnuo 56mm f/1.4

The new Yongnuo lenses are going to have some stiff competition:

Yongnuo 23mm f/1.4 vs…

Yongnuo 33mm f/1.4 vs…

Yongnuo 56mm f/1.4 vs…

Good luck Yongnuo!

Given the latest rumors, news and pre-announcements, it is time to update our full list of third party AF X mount lenses.

LEAKED: New 33mm f/1.4 Autofocus X Mount Lens (Yongnuo?)

A new third party 33mm f/1.4 autofocus lens for Fujifilm X mount has now appeared on the Chinese social media platform Weibo (via Camerabeta).

I just got a new domestic automatic lens, 33mm F1.4, and the Fuji X mount version will be launched. At present, the price and release time are still uncertain. It is said that the price is very good. You can look forward to it.

The only thing we got is the image above.

The brand is still unkown, but some point out the similarity to some of the Yongnuo AF lenses available for other mounts.

Until now, besides the Fujinon XF 33mm f/1.4, we have the following third party 33mm f/1.4 autofocus lenses already:

TESTED: Sirui 1.25x Anamorphic Adapter on Fujifilm X-H2 and XF33mm f/1.4

Let’s catch up with a piece of gear that I can’t remember I have ever talked about: the Sirui 1.25x Anamorphic Adapter.

As far as I can see it is available at Amazon since October 2022, but the Japanese guys at Mapcamera, who have now shared a test of the adapter on a Fujifilm X-H2 with XF33mmF1.4 lens, say that it will be available only this month.

Anyways, it’s something I have not talked about so far, so here is how it works.

Fujinon XF33mm f/1.2 Patent Spotted

Once upon a time, Fujifilm planed to make a Fujinon XF33mmF1.0, which they then scraped in favor of the smaller Fujinon XF50mm F1.0.

What we got instead, is the highly praised Fujinon XF33mmF1.4.

But it looks like at some point Fujifilm also played with the idea to make a Fujinon XF33mmF1.2, as such a patent has now been surfaced in Japanese language (down below the translated version) at IP force and found by Digicame-info.

I doubt Fujifilm will now also give us a Fujinon XF33mmF1.2, but let us know in the comments if you’d want one.

Fujinon XF23mm f/1.4 R LM WR Reviews, XF70-300 vs XF100-400, Hands-on with XF33mmF1.4 and XF27mmF2.8 R WR and More

For this weekend I’ve prepared a little roundup covering some of the latest Fujinon lenses. Down below you will find:

Compared: Sigma 16mmF1.4 vs Fujinon XF16mmF1.4, Sigma 30mmF1.4 vs XF33mmF1.4 and Sigma 56mmF1.4 vs XF56mmF1.2

We told you regarding the upcoming X mount Sigma lenses, that we don’t believe they will suffer the same faith of the X mount Zeiss Touit Trinity.

The main reason: the Zeiss Touit X lenses were more expensive than their Fujinon XF counterparts but did not offer a better image quality that would justify the price jump.

On the other hand, the Sigma X mount lenses will come in at a sensibly lower price tag than their Fujinon XF competitors and probably at the same time offer a very good image quality, too.

Well, today I’d like to go a bit more in depth and compare also some of the other specs thanks to the very useful B&H Photo comparison tool.

Sigma 16mm f/1.4 DC DN vs Fujinon XF16mm f/1.4 R WR

  • the Sigma is 55% more affordable than the Fujinon lens
  • the Fujinon is 7.5% lighter than the Sigma
  • the Fujinon has better close focus distance capability (15cm vs 25cm)
  • full specs comparison here (filter size, optical design etc)

Sigma 30mm f/1.4 DC DN vs Fujinon XF33mm f/1.4 R LM WR

  • the Sigma is 58% more affordable than the Fujinon lens
  • the Sigma is 26% lighter than the Fujinon
  • both have the same close focus distance capability (30cm)
  • full specs comparison here (filter size, optical design etc)

Sigma 56mm f/1.4 DC DN vs Fujinon XF56mm f/1.2 R

  • the Sigma is 52% more affordable than the Fujinon lens
  • the Sigma is 31% lighter than the Fujinon
  • the Sigma has better close focus distance capability (50cm vs 70cm)
  • full specs comparison here (filter size, optical design etc)

Given the gentle price and probably also the great performance, I believe the Sigma X mount lenses could potentially be an attractive option for many Fuji X shooters.

What I believe could be the biggest “deal breaker” is not that they are too close to existing Fujinon lenses, but that all the Sigma lenses mentioned above do not have an aperture ring, which is something many of us love and consider a key part of the Fuji X shooter experience.

At least for me it’s like this, so much so that I sold my original XF27mmF2.8 to get the new XF27mmF2.8 R WR just to have an aperture ring on the lens.

But other than that, I am happy Sigma joins the X mount with whatever lenses they want and I look forward to more in future.
