APS-C Crop is Cr&p, Amazon Goes Crazy, Fujifilm 2019/2020 Release Timeline, X100V, XF16-80, GF50 and More Top Articles for July

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!

Fujifilm GFX 50R with GF50mm Hands on Photos, Lab Test Shots, First Looks and FUJI GUYS Photokina 2018 Wrap Up

Fujifilm GFX 50R

ePhotozine published a couple of hands-on photos of the Fujifilm GFX 50R with GF 50mmF3.5.

I am pretty sure ePhotozine just did it just to trigger my GAS even further, because I kind of fell in love with the Fujifilm GFX 50R while trying it out at the Fujifilm booth.

They also shared hands on images of the GF45-100mm and GF 100-200mm here.

Down below Lok’s Fujifilm GFX 50R first look and here are the dpreview sample images.

And despite all the reviewers make a brilliang job covering the Fujifilm GFX 50R, they have a hard job this time, since it has the exact same performance of the Fujifilm GFX 50S. The only difference is the design, and I strongly invite you to test it out by yourself, because what I loved to handle on the booth, you might hate it.

And in no case I would recommend this camera to left eye shooters, since you are going to cover the screen with your face, and you can forget to swipe the touch screen to access your custom functions while you have your eye on the viewfinder. The swipe function will be used a lot, since there is not D-Pad, where to assign custom functions.

With that said, if you are a rangefinder lover, then you probably already are right eye dominant and the corner viewfinder placement.

Hands On Thoughts and Fuji Guys

Fujifilm GFX Survives Fifteen Foot Fall, Fujinon GF 50mm f/3.5 Reviews, Zeiss Otus 100mm f/1.4 Meets GFX and More

Fujifilm GFX

So, while we wait for Fujifilm to finally be able to ship all Fujifilm GFX100 pre-orders, we dedicate a roundup to the super discounted Fujifilm GFX50S and Fujifilm GFX 50R.

And despite the frankly superior specs of the Fujifilm GFX100, still today, if I should pick one, I’d go all in with the Fujifilm GFX50R. That one, combined with the Fujinon GF50mm f/3.5, and I have a powerhouse version of my much beloved Fujifilm X-E3 with XF27mm (+beer  ;) ) combo.

Believe me, there isn’t a day, that I am not tempted to get it. But for me, making this step, would mean go all in with the GFX system (and leaving the X system), and given the great results I get with my X gear, I am not yet ready for such a big jump (and investment).

Fujifilm X-Pro3 Top Selling Camera on FujiRumors in October + Top Selling Lenses & More

TOP 3 SELLING…

Top Accessories / Bags

Top Fujifilm Series Cameras

Despite the crazy X-H1 rebate and the big X-T3 savings, the Fujifilm X-Pro3 stood its ground, and, at least here on FujiRumors, enjoyed a good start. But sure, once the launch-frenzy settles down, the X-T3 will claim its top spot again.

Top Fujinon X Lenses

Top Fujifilm GFX Gear

All Fujinon GF lenses (except for GF50mm f/3.5) are now heavily discounted. See the full list of discounted GF lenses here.

Turns out FR-readers prefer either very fast lenses (GF110/2) or the flexibility of zooms.

Top X Mount Third Party Lenses/Adapters

The fire-sale on the Mitakon 35/0.95 pushed the lens back on top. The Viltrox 85/1.8 remains stable in the list.

Top Software

  1. Capture One Pro 12
  2. Luminar 4
  3. ON1 Photo RAW

Capture One Pro 12 is on an unstoppable victory parade, being by a very (!!!) large margin your top choice when it comes to RAW editing software. Nothing comes close it, even though Luminar 4 is on a worthy second place (but still worlds away from Capture One Pro).

As I told you, I myself left Adobe forever, to go all in with Capture One Pro 12.
