Size Comparison: Fujinon XF 50mm F1.0 vs XF 56mm F1.2 vs XF 16-55mm F2.8 vs XF 33mm F1.0 vs XF 90mm F2

So, the official product images of the upcoming Fujinon XF50mmF1.0 have just been leaked here.

I thought to make a quick but accurate size comparison between the Fujinon XF 50mm F1.0 and the XF 56mm F1.2 as well as the XF 16-55mm F2.8.

What we can see, is that our previous size comparison (based on technical sketches) was totally accurate too, hence, if you want to see the size of the Fujinon XF50mmF1.0 compared to the originally planed XF33mmF1.0 and the stellar XF90mmF2, check out our previous post here.

Fujinon XF16-80mmF4 Fully Extended, Fujifilm GFX100 Controls, XF 33mmF1.0 vs XF 35mmF1.4 Size Comparison and More

CP+ 2019 Live Coverage

The CP+ 2019 live coverage continues. We have already covered:

Today we have:

  • close up shots of the Fujifilm GFX100
  • Fujifilm GFX50R + GF50mmF3.5 combo
  • images of the XF16-80mmF4 fully extended
  • images of the Fujinon XF33mmF1.0

That GFX50R with GF50mmF3.5 is a serious GAS trigger for me ;).

All the images shared below (and more) can be found at the Japanese sites dc.watch and sankei.

Fujifilm X-H1 with XF 33mm f/1.0 vs Panasonic S1 with Lumix S PRO 50mm f/1.4 Size Comparison

Fujinon XF 33mm f/1.0

Today I was curious to know how the Fujifilm X-H1 with Fujinon XF33mm f/1.0 would compare in terms of size to the brand new full frame Panasonic S1 with Lumix S PRO 50mm f/1.4.

So I grabbed one of the real life pictures of the XF33mm f/1.0 I took at Photokina 2018 and made an approximate comparison.

If the final production XF 33mmF1.0 will have the same size of the mock-up I have seen at Photokina, then the Fujinon XF33mm f/1.0 will be smaller than the Lumix S PRO 50mm f/1.4.

Let’s hope it will also be cheaper, since the Panasonic Lumix S PRO 50mm f/1.4 comes with a hefty price tag.

When it comes to camera bodies, the Panasonic S1 is noticeably bigger than the Fujifilm X-T3, X-H1 and also other full frame cameras like the Sony A7III.

My guess is that the bigger body is needed for proper heat dissipation to allow 4K/60 and avoid overheating. This is probably also the reason why no Sony A7 camera currently offers 4K60p.

But despite the larger body, the Panasonic has still to do compromises in terms of 4K/60P compared for example to the Fujifilm X-T3.

  • Fujifilm X-T3: 4K/60 with only 1.18x crop without line skipping
  • Panasonic S1: 4K/60 with 1.5x crop (basically APS-C size)
  • Panasonic S1R: 4K/60 with line skipping

In our article about the several advantages of APS-C sensors over full frame, we explained how smaller sensors are faster to read out, hence generate less heat and allow for features like the blackout less EVF at 30fps continuous shooting, and, in this case, a better 4K/60 readout.

The Fujifilm X-H1 has no 4K/60, but this is a limitation that comes from the older and slower X Processor Pro.

So, every sensor size has its advantages. It’s now up to Fujifilm to fully take advantage of them. And I expect especially the Fujifilm X-H2 to raise new standards and be a clear step ahead of the competition.

Fujinon XF 33mm F1.0 vs XF 35mm F1.4 vs XF 35mm F2 – SIZE COMPARISON

Fujinon XF33mmF1.0 vs XF35mmF1.4 vs XF35mmF2

As you know, I have been to photokina 2018, and I also have delivered you the worldwide first real life images of the XF33mmF1.0, XF16mmF2.8 and XF16-80mmF4 lenses, as well as a side by side comparison of the 3 new lenses on Fuji’s roadmap.

However, I keep up getting questions about how big the XF 33mm F1.0 is, compared to its little brothers, the XF 35mm F1.4 and XF 35mm F2 WR.

So based on the images I took and what I have seen with my own eyes at the Photokina Fujifilm booth, I try to give you a visual representation of how Fuji’s 50mm equivalent trinity compares side by side mounted on a Fujifilm X-T3.

Of course this can’t be super-accurate, and I’d say it’s 85+% close to perfection. However, the Fujinon XF 33mm F1.0 will hit the market in 2020, and until there, the final size can change.

In an earlier post on FujiRumors, we launched a huge poll, asking you guys if you consider the Fujinon XF33mmF1.0 is too big for you. 7,500 people voted already, and you can check the results here.

We also launched XF33mmF1.0 feature polls in the past, that you can check out here.

And speaking of 35mm lenses…

Firmware Update for Viltrox 23mmF1.4, 33mmF1.4 and 56mmF1.4 Released

Viltrox has released firmware updates for the following lenses:

Details of the fix:

Fixed the problem that the focus would twitch back and forth in AF-C mode

 

Fujinon XF30mmF1.0, XF35mmF1.0 and XF33mmF1.0 Patents Spotted and Fujinon XF 50mmF1.0 Coming Soon

Finally, 5+ years after our original Fujinon XF33mmF1.0 rumor, the patent for that lens has now been spotted by hi-lows-note.blog (via j-platpat.inpit.go.jp).

And not only that!

It looks like Fujifilm looked into slightly different variations of that super-fast lens, more precisely:

XF35mmF1.0
Focal length: 34.686 mm
F number: 1.03
Angle of view: 45.4

XF30mmF1.0
Focal length: 30.369 mm
F number: 1.03
Angle of view: 51.0

XF33mmF1.0
Focal length: 33.489 mm
F number: 1.03
Angle of view: 46.8

As you know, back in 2018 Fujifilm officially added the Fujinon XF33mmF1.0 to the lens roadmap, but later on in 2019, Fujifilm officially canceled plans for the Fujinon XF33mmF1.0 in favor of the Fujinon XF50mmF1.0 for the reasons we already elaborated in this article.

As we could see in a live stream youtube video we reported about here, the Fujinon XF50mmF1.0 is out for Beta testing, meaning Fujifilm will be able to respect the original timeline, hence be able to release this lens within 2020.

From the first sample visible during the live stream, I can confidently say that an impressive lens is coming our way.

If it was really more needed than a Fujinon XF33mmF1.0, given the fact that we already have (and I personally own), the stunning Fujinon XF56mmF1.2, that’s up to you to decide.

For sure, the Fujinon XF50mmF1.0 will incorporate the smoothest and best autofocus, it will be weather sealed, hence addressing two of the major complaints with the XF56mmF1.2.

Plus, the XF50mmF1.0 will be priced surprisingly well, and this is why I believe, that Fujifilm is about to drop a real winner.

Opticallimits Viltrox 33mm f/1.4 AF Review: “A Serious Alternative to the Aging Fujinon XF 35mm f/1.4 R”

Opticallimits (former photozone) published its Viltrox 33mm f/1.4 Fujifilm X mount lens review.

From their conclusions:

[…] the verdict has to be about context. And the context is that this is about a $280 lens costing less than half of the Fujinon XF 35mm f/1.4 R and this Fujinon is far from being flawless.

The Viltrox lens actually shares many characteristics with this lens. In terms of resolution, it is quite sharp in the image center at f/1.4 and f/2 whereas the outer image field is soft. Stopping down results in a gradual increase in quality reaching its peak at f/5.6. Images are sharp across the board at this setting although there’s still some room for improvement here.

Lateral CAs are low and nothing to worry about.

If you are into architecture photography, you may spot a tad of pincushion distortion.

There is also some vignetting when shooting at f/1.4 but it’s not out of the ordinary really.

[…] A positive aspect is the quality of the bokeh. It deteriorates somewhat in the far corners but generally, it is pleasing. This is especially true for the out-of-focus highlights.

[…] mechanical quality is surprisingly high.

[…] The AF is both speedy and noiseless – something that can’t be said about the Fujinon XF 35mm f/1.4 R actually.

[…] Overall, it may not the last word in terms of sharpness at large apertures but the Viltrox AF 33mm f/1.4 XF is a killer offering in terms of value and a serious alternative to the aging Fujinon XF 35mm f/1.4 R.
