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.

The Fujinon GF50mm f/3.5 will start shipping at the end of September. It’s a top seller at BHphoto, and my guess is that it will become extremely popular amongst GFX shooters.

There isn’t much content out there. But luckily there is good one, thanks to Rico Pfirstinger.

Lots of samples, as well as a comprehensive write-up at our German sister forum (the English Fuji forum here).

Fujinon XF 16-80mm F4 Review: It Performs Better than More Expensive Professional Lenses

 

Fujinon XF16-80mm f/4

I don’t know you, but I hate it when Fujiiflm announced gear, and then lets us wait 3 months to finally ship it.

This is the case with their “July” announcements. X-T2, XF200, XF8-16 and now XF16-80 and GF50 were all announced in July, but shipped only in much later, between September and November.

In case of the Fujinon XF16-80mm f/4, we still have to wait until the end of September, to finally see it shipping.

As a consequence, we are meager on independent third party reviews…. but a fellow FujiRumors has found one, and shared it with us!

The review with lots of high res samples comes from the Slovakian page ephoto, and here are their conclusions of the lens (google translated):

Fujinon XF16-80 / 4 R OIS WR filled a hole in Fujifilm’s portfolio. This is a lens that everyone who starts Fujifilm should buy and is not sorry to pay for a more versatile lens.

The aperture F4 makes it more suitable for outdoor use. In slightly poor lighting conditions, the photographer is assisted by effective optical stabilization. The scope of the lens allows you to comfortably shoot landscape, nature, architecture.

At the same time, he handles the details and does not fear portraits. When taking pictures in poor weather conditions, you will appreciate the seal. It is the ideal lens for trips, vacations, trips anywhere. The weight is only 440 g.

If you want to shoot with a single lens, this is him. I hope we will meet him, as it will be cost-effective with the X-T30, X-T3 and X-H1.

Personally, I find no mistake on the lens that would make sense to bother. In terms of parameters and price, it provides above-average user value and optically exceeds one of the more expensive professional lenses. Such a good and generally balanced zoom is not easy to see. There is no need to hesitate for a moment.

Make sure to check out the full google translated review at ephoto.
