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).

DPRTV Fujinon GF 50mm F3.5 Review

Fujinon GF 50mm F3.5

The Fujinon GF 50mm f/3.5 is not only the newest, smallest, lightest and most affordable lens in the GF lens line-up, but it’s also the currently best selling G mount lens.

But what do you give up in exchange for the small size?

According to Chris from DPReview, not much. Here is what he says in his Fujinon GF 50mm F3.5 review:

  • smallest and lightest lens for the Fujifilm GFX system
  • manual focus ring is buttery smooth
  • linear motor AF. Tested on Fujifilm GFX100 the AF speed is very impressive. From near to far focus is quick
  • lens design is relatively complicated compared to other “pancake” lenses, and it’s amazing that Fujifilm was able to keep it that small
  • minimal breathing
  • very sharp
  • can easily handle the resolution of the GFX100
  • the GF50mm f/3.5 is a full frame equivalent of 40mm f/2.8
  • very good center sharpness even wide open
  • surprising the corners, which hold up very well too
  • optically a very sharp lens
  • very minor and very well controlled color fringing
  • you are going to like the bokeh, maybe a little bit of a darker edge, but very smooth interiors and very nice round shape even stopped down
  • the lens is a bit too wide for portraits. the GF63mm is a better choice, or the best overall is the GF110mm f/2
  • macro capability is not amazing, but you will use it on high resolution cameras, so you can crop the hell out of it
  • Chris still prefers the 63mm focal length, but if you want to save money, size and weight, the GF50mm is great

Looks like Fujifilm crafted yet another winner. Well done, Fuji!

DRPeview Fujinon GF 50mm f/3.5 Samples, Rico’s First Look and Fujifilm Promo Videos

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).

Fujifilm XF 16-80mmF4 and Fujinon GF 50mmF3.5 to be Released This Fall – First Specs Online and Additional Fuji GFX100 Images

Fujinon Lenses

The FujiRumors CP+ 2019 live coverage continues, and this time I have found the answer to the question, when the Fujinon XF16-80mm f/4 and GF 50mm f/3.5 will be released at the Japanese site capa.getnavi here:

  • XF 16-80mmF4 – to be released in fall 2019
  • GF 50mmF3.5 – to be released in fall 2019

Those perfect travel lenses come to late for our summer trips. Digested this bad news? Then let’s move on!

The Japanese site also shared Fujifilm GFX100 images and media slides (in Japanese), but don’t worry, FujiRumors has already leaked them all (and even more in detail) a few weeks ago in this article.

I did translate all the Japanese slides, and there is nothing that we do not know already about the Fujifilm GFX100.. For additional GFX 100 images you can also check out the Polish site optyczne.

What I will translate for you, though, are the media slides of the lenses.

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.

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”.
