Fujinon GF Lens Roadmap

You might remember how here on FujiRumors we leaked Fujifilm’s interal GF lens roadmap already back in April 2017 (see screenshot above)!

But time passed, and there is more to share and to update… so let’s do it today.

GF 80mm F1.4

We broke the rumor of a crazy fast GF 80mm F1.4 (!!!) medium format lens back in June 2017.

However, keep in mind that a Fujifilm manager said here that they need 2 years to discuss, develop and finally make a camera and even more than 2 years in case of lenses.

So if in June 2017, when we shared the GF 80mmF1.4 rumor, the discussions about the GF80mmF1.4 just started, then now, 1 year later, IF Fujifilm really decided to go ahead with it, it will take them well over 1 year to come out with it.

Again… if Fujifilm decided to make it all.

But even if Fujifilm decided to make it, you should not expect any GF 80mmF1.4 lens at Photokina 2018, and I’d personally would not expect it before 2020 anyway.

Don’t worry, there will be lots of other great gear to enjoy at Photokina 2018, such as the Fujifilm X-T3 and Fujifilm GF 50R.

Tilt Shift, UWA & The New Roadmap

According to our sources, we must add also a tilt shift lens for the GF system to the list of rumored lenses shared back in April 2017, so the updated and complete rumored GF lens list is the following:

  • GF 35mm F2.8 (coming 2018)
  • GF 20-36mm F3.5-4.5 (in 2018 this or the GF 100-200)
  • GF 100-200mm F4.5-5.6 (in 2018 this or the GF 20-36)
  • GF 80mm F1.4 (not in 2018 – personally I’d not expect it before 2020)
  • Tilt Shift lens (coming 2018/2019)

Fujifilm plans to release 2/3 GF lenses a year, and since we already got the GF250mmF4 last month, we can expect a maximum of two more lenses in 2018.

Now, for 2018, the Fujinon GF 35mmF2.8 should be sure.

So now it’s your turn guys. Let us know which one you would prefer between the GF20-36, GF-100-200 and the tilt shift lens for 2018.

And make sure to join our Fujifilm GFX facebook group.

stay tuned,

Which Fujinon GF lens would you like in 2018?

I guess many of you were (and hopefully still are or are going soon) on holidays in these weeks.

So maybe, between a jump into the refreshing water, a mountain hike and a whole day city exploring, you might have missed some of the articles we have shared in July.

Hence, for your convenience, here are the top 15 FujiRumors articles for July.

Personally, my travel is done already, as I have been to stunningly beautiful Croatia with that fanboy SonyAlphaRumors guy.

We will see if I can sneak in another trip into what remains of my summer break. If so, make sure to follow my Instagram to see where I am hanging around.

But even if I can’t travel, I live in a wonderful spot of this planet. Beauty is all around me, and my Fuji is always ready to capture it.

Oh… and my wife is starting out with photography this summer, so I can’t be more happy than this anyway :) #proudhusband

Enjoy your summer!
