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…

Additional Specs: Viltrox 23mm f/1.4, 33mm f/1.4 and 56mm f/1.4 Autofocus Lenses

The only Viltrox lens for Fujifilm until now

Viltrox

A FR-reader shared with FujiRumors some flyers about the upcoming Viltrox lenses:

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

Viltrox 23, 33 and 56 hands on images!

The flyers give a few more details to the ones already shared in this article as well as some correction (for example a slight weight increase in some cases and lens elements design changes for the 23mm f/1.4).

In the meantime, the Viltrox 85mm f/1.8 autofocus lens for Fujifilm X is a best seller and so far the feedback is definitely very positive. It’s not a Fujinon, but it’s also so much cheaper, that you definitely get great performance for little price.

Down below all the new details about the upcoming lenses.

New Fujinon XF 50mm f/1.0 Hands-On Images and Accurate Size Comparison with XF 33/1.0, 56/1.2, 50/2, 90/2, 16-55/2.8

Fujinon XF 50mm f/1.0

As you know, Fujifilm canceled the Fujinon XF33mm f/1.0 in favor of the Fujinon XF 50mm f/1.0. As Fujifilm explained at the Fujifilm X Summit, the change was necessary in order to save size, weight (and I’ll add also price).

FujiRumors already made an accurate size comparison between the XF 50mm f/1.0 and the XF56/1.2, XF50/2, XF90/2 and XF16-55/2.8 in this article.

Now new hands on images of the Fujinon XF 50mm f/1.0 appeared on weibo via camerabeta, and you can see them all down below.

Fujinon XF 50mm f/1.0 Accurate Size Comparison with XF 56mm f/1.2 and XF 50mm f/2

Fujinon XF 50mm f/1.0

As we reported here, for the sake of size and weight, Fujifilm canceled the Fujinon XF33mm f/1.0 from the roadmap and replaced it with a smaller Fujinon XF50mm f/1.0.

The new Fujinon XF50mm f/1.0 will be 35% smaller than the latest Fujinon XF33mm f/1.0 mock-up and also weight under 900 gram, as opposed to the 1.3 kg of the XF 33mm f/1.0.

So I thought I take the official Fujinon XF50mm f/1.0 images shared by Fujifilm here and compare its size with the Fujinon XF56mm f/1.2 and Fujinon XF 50mm f/2.

While this is as accurate as it gets, keep in mind that this is just an early prototype and the final version will surely see some changes.

According to the first results from our survey, you guys agree with Fuji’s choice to change focal length in order to make the lens smaller and lighter.

Fujifilm Scraps XF33mm f/1.0 in Favor of Smaller XF50mm f/1.0 – Do You Agree?

As Fujifilm explained at the Fujifilm X Summit, in order to save size, the scraped the Fujinon XF33mm f/1.0 in favor of a smaller and ligher Fujinon XF 50mm f/1.0.

Down below you can see both lenses side by side.
