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

LEAKED: First Images of Fujifilm X-T30 Dark Gray and Hands On Images of XF 16mm F2.8, XF 16-80mm F4 and GF 50mm F3.5

Fujifilm X-T30 Leak

The Fujifilm X-T30, to be announced on February 14 along with the Fujinon XF16mm f/2.8, will come not only in the traditional black and silver, but also in a Fujifilm X-Pro2 graphite alike color. You can see the first images here on FujiRumors as well some images of the upcoming XF 16mm f/2.8, XF 16-80mm f/4 and GF 50mm f/3.5 shared by dpreview.

Personally I was never really a super fan of the Fujifilm X-T30 design, but I must say this new color raises its “sexiness” quite a bit.

There will be a huge live blogging on February 14 (bigger than you think ;) ), so stay tuned on FujiRumors and follow us on Facebook, Instagram, RSS-feed and Twitter.

Fujinon GF100-200mm F5.6 R LM OIS WR First Look and Samples (Coming First Quarter 2019)

Fujinon GF100-200mm F5.6

The Belgian shop PCHstore shared the first images of the Fujinon GF100-200mmF5.6 R LM OIS WR, as well as a first sample shot with crop. A selection of the images can be found down below.

You can read the PCHstore first impressions article in French here (google translated). Amongst the others they write:

Our first impressions are more than good! This lens is relatively light, handy and the optical quality after our first tests is at the rendezvous. In addition the GF100-200mm is stabilized which is very valuable when we have the tremblotte like me

The Fujinon GF100-200mm F5.6 LM OIS WR should arrive in the course of the first quarter of 2019 if our information is correct

If you are in PCHstore area, make sure to run there, since they write that “for those who would like to see it; the GF100-200mm will be visible until tomorrow 12H!

Back in September, Fujifilm announced the new Fujinon GF lens roadmap, which included the GF100-200mmF5.6 R LM OIS WR, GF50mmF3.5 R LM WR and GF45-100mmF4 R LM OIS WR.

For GFX Lovers

 

Fujinon GF Lens Roadmap Timeline 2019/2020 and More Fujifilm GFX 100 Details with Image Sample Super Crop

Fujifilm GFX System

Fujifilm has recently announced a new GF lens mount roadmap. The official roadmap, though, didn’t gave any timeline about when the future GF50mmF3.5 pancake, GF100-200mmF5.6 and GF45-100mmF4 will hit the market.

Now the Japanese site dc.watch has shared a couple of media slides, including one that shows the roadmap for the various lenses. We can see:

  • 2019
    – GF100-200mmF5.6 R LM OIS WR
    – GF50mmF3.5 R LM WR
  • 2020
     – GF45-100mmF4 R LM OIS WR

As we told you back in December 2017, Fujifilm plans to release 2/3 lenses for each of their systems (X and GFX) a year. This means that we might see one more lens coming n 2019 for the GFX 50S as well as 1 or 2 more lenses in 2020. Check out our big rumor timeline to see what could come.

The slides also give us some basic details about these lenses, which I have all listed at the bottom of this article.

Other media slides (also below) show some more details the Fujifilm GFX 100. So we discover that (unsurprisingly) it will feature the X Processor 4 and we can see a first crop made out an image taken with the GFX 100.

Don’t worry, of course I did google translate the Japanese description of the slides for your guys. Here on FujiRumors we like to treat you well and save your time ;).

SUPER FULL FRAME Fujifilm GFX 50R First Look and GF 50mmF3.5, 100-200mm F5.6, 45-100mm F4 Images

SUPER FULL FRAME

One thing I liked form the Fujifilm GFX 50R and GFX 100 live stream announcement, is that Fujifilm asked what full frame means.

Full” indicates that some kind of limit is reached. So what is the Fujifilm GFX system? Well, then Fuji calls it a “super full frame” ;)

And just for fun I will tell you this: in German we often refer to “full frame” as “Kleinbild“, which means “small frame“, because it’s smaller than… guess what?… you got it, medium format!

So what now, is full frame actually a small frame?

In order to end the confusion, I will tell you this: every system is “full frame”. Fuji’s APS-C system is conceived and designed for APS-C, and so is their MF system. M43 is build around the M43 sensor and so forth.

Whatever you hold in your hands right now, from an iPhone to Phase One, it’s “full frame”.

X-E2 on rank 2, 4, 6 and 10 at the Amazon CSC ranking!

In my previous post I wrote that the X-E2 is selling very well at AmazonUS. I’ve said this after checking their camera rankings. As FR-reader lettherebelight said in an older post: “The Amazon metric is widely used because it gives people without access to internal data the opportunity to take a snapshot in time and compare the current trend of a certain product(s). […]. Amazon is one of the largest retailers in the world and the data suggests what people are buying […]. It is a good metric.”

I believe that the X-E2 is mabye the best selling X-camera immediatly after its launch. All the possible combinations (body, body+kit lens, silver or black) rapidly climbed the ranking. They are right now on the 2, 4, 6 and 10 (earlier today they where in the 2, 3, 5 and 8 position) at the Amazon CSC ranking. The X-E2 is also the 9th best sold camera in the overall camera ranking!

If you want your camera right in time for X-mas, feel free to pre-order it using the links below. If time isn’t a problem for you, just wait. I’ll share every review I find on Fujirumors. I you want to know much more about the X-E2, read Rico’s excellent X-pert corner special here (for Rico’s XQ1 Flickr set click here).

How to…

Here is how you can support Fujirumors: if you think the X-E2 is the camera that meets your needs and you want to pre-order it, feel free to use one of the links below.

Our X-pert Rico will get his production XQ1 soon (and write a first look about it. In the meantime see his XQ1 Flickr set here). If you’ve checked out his X-E2 first look here then you’ll know that it will be worth to read it… in his X-E2 first look Rico called the XQ1 “an X20 on steroids“. Looking forward to his review in the next days! So stay tuned via google+, facebook and twitter.

In the meantime it’s well worth to read also the XQ1 first impressions at DPreview here:

The XQ1, therefore, takes the larger-than-usual 2/3″ sensor that we found offered very good image quality in the Fujifilm X20, and places it in a genuinely pocketable body. That X-Trans CMOS II sensor also enables exceptionally fast autofocus – even the pre-production XQ1 we used for this article has to count as one of the quickest compacts we’ve seen. For fans of manual focus, the XQ1 also offers a ‘Peaking’ display to help get the sharpest results.”

cheers
