Leaving Fujifilm for Sony A7III and Back to Fuji X-T3, Fuji Camera Release Timeline, X100V Delay – Top August Articles

3½ Reasons Why Fujifilm is Waiting so Long to Release the Fujifilm X100V

Fujifilm X100V

When I recently posted the huge Fujifilm camera release timeline, I made one single error, that thankfully you guys corrected in the comments.

I calculated, that the Fujifilm X100 series got a refresh every 2 years, which is absolutely correct. But then, based on that refresh cycle, I said that the X100V should come two years after the X100F (which was announced in January 2017).

But this would mean the Fujifilm X100V should have hit the market in January 2019, which evidently it has not. Our sources say it will come at some point in 2020.

Now, not to justify my error, but, well, I run FujiRumors 365 days a year non stop, and I wrote that particular article in a bar, drinking beer, while waiting for the rain to stop and finally go out shooting again with my X-E3, as you can see here. Well, at this point I’ll just say is that it rained a lot that day ;)

I apologize if I confused you guys, so I felt I need to address this in a dedicated article.

But also, this is a good opportunity to quickly discuss, why Fujifilm is waiting so long, to finally give us a successor to the Fujifilm X100F.

Down below 3½ reasons for that:

Release Timeline for Fujifilm X-T4, X-H2, X-T40, X-Pro3, X100V, X-E4, X-T200 and X-A6 Based on Fuji’s Previous Camera Releases

Fujifilm Timeline

Almost 1 year ago, I published a release timeline of Fujifilm cameras, and, based on that timeline, I made guesses on when a successor could come.

Turns out that, so far, our timeline was pretty accurate. In fact, based on Fuji’s release schedule, we predicted:

  • Prediction: X-T30 in February 2019 – Reality: January 2019 – Accuracy: 1 month off
  • Prediction: X-Pro3 in January 202o – Reality: around October 2019 – Accuracy: about 3 months off

Now I thought it’s time to update our timeline, because:

  • some cameras have already been announced (X-T30) and others will be announced soon (X-Pro3)
  • this time we include cameras not listed last time (X-T200 and X-A6)

Down below you find the updated release timeline for:

The X-T4/X-H2 Grain of Salt Corner

Keep in mind that this camera replacement timeline is NOT based ON RUMORS, but on past camera release schedule of Fujifilm.

Hence, take it with a grain of salt, especially when it comes to Fujifilm X-H2 and Fujifilm X-T4 release. The timing between X-H1 and X-T3 has proven to be very damaging for X-H1 sales, so there might be some changes here.

In fact, according to our sources, the Fujifilm X-H2 might not even come in 2020! But I want to wait for more details and confirmations, before changing the below timeline.

Speaking of X-H2 and X-T4, the FujiRumors community has voted on various Fujifilm X-H2 and X-T4 release timing options. Check out the poll results here (I voted for the option currently on the 3rd position).

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 X-Pro3, X-H2, X100V, Panasonic Full Frame Fiasco, XF33mm F1.0, GFX 100 – Breaking May FR-Rumors and Top 15 Articles

Top of the Posts

May was an extremely busy month, with 79 articles written in 31 days, the GFX100 live blogging and… my marriage (no, can’t buy any new gear for a while with what that cost ;).)

In May, FujiRumors has also delivered several breaking rumors about the following Fujifilm cameras:

  • Fujifilm X-Pro3
  • Fujifilm X-H2
  • Fujifilm X100V (or X200)

I consider all rumors 100% accurate.

It’s not our style to mislead and clickbait people with fake made up rumors, sadly a practice that is going strong these days. FR is well fueld with reliable rumors, we do not need to go down the desperate fake rumor road.

And I tell you more…

I now slow down a few days to recover, but then  I’ll be back with rumors, especially with one that might surprise you positively. You can dream now and I’ll tell you later, once I have green light from the source :).

Back to us, and to the very busy month of May.

So many things happened, that I thought to list the top 15 read articles for May down below, so you can catch up in case you missed them.

Fujifilm X100V (X200) with New Lens, but still 23mm

Fujifilm X100V/X200

When I shared the rumor about the Fujifilm X100V (or X200) having a new lens, many of you wondered if Fujifilm would change the focal length.

Would Fujifilm go with an 18mm lens like on the Fujifilm X70 / XF10? Or maybe even a 35mm lens (50 FF equiv.)?

According to our sources, the lens will be new, but keep the 23mm focal length.

I remind you that the Fujifilm X100V (or X200) will be released in 2020 only.

Fujifilm X100V (or X200) Coming with New Lens

We already told you that the Fujifilm X100F successor (X100V/X200) will come in 2020.

I am still working on the details, but I can now safely say, that the Fujifilm X100V (or X200) will come with a new lens (and of course we can expect the latest X-Trans IV sensor in it).

As an anonymous source also told me, “the old lens is already struggling to make use of the current sensor”.

I know you guys have questions about the new lens. And I am working on this. But for now I do not feel confident enough to give a final answer on this. But the work is in progress, so expect updates on this hopefully soon.

Thanks to the anonymous source, who contacted me yesterday confirming me it will have a new lens. I read also the rest of your message. I will make a routine checks, and share later on. Thanks a ton!

Fujifilm X100V/X200 Coming in… The Answer in This FujiRumors Article!

Looking at the Fujifilm X series camera release timeline we shared last year, and comparing it with the current rumors, we can say that it turns out to be pretty accurate… except for one camera: the Fujifilm X100F successor (may it be called X100V or X200 or whatever)

The X100 line had a refresh cycle of about 2 years, and given that the X100F was launched in January 2017, everybody speculates it will come very soon, at least within 2019.

But trusted sources now informed us, that the Fujifilm X100V (or X200) will be launched in 2020 only!

This time Fujifilm decided to wait longer than ever to give us a successor.

And by the way, if you want to know which is the Fujifilm facebook group with less gear talk, less gear shots, less gear discussions and mostly focussed on the art of photography and images, than this is definitely our Fujifilm X100 facebook group.

I think this is representative for the people, who buy this camera: never think about gear again. Get the camera, one lens only, and go out and shoot. It’s all about being focused on taking pictures.

The liberation of limitation!

Fujifilm X Summit September 20: Big Announcements, Cool Insights and New Lens/Firmware Roadmaps?

Fujifilm X Summit

Fujifilm just announced the Fujifilm X Summit for September 20 at 1PM GMT. This means it will take place at:

  • 9AM New York Time
  • 3PM Berlin Time

There will be a LIVE STREAMING here on FujiRumors.

Fujifilm writes about the event:

Following the first round in Dubai, we are pleased to announce that the second X Summit will be held on September 20th 1PM GMT!

This time, the X Summit will be held in Shibuya, Tokyo – the mecca of street photography in Tokyo. What will happen this time?

Make sure to tune in on September 20th.

Now, Fujifilm can’t tell you this, but of course they mean to stay tuned on FujiRumors for non stop real time coverage, just as we did last time back in February with the Dubai X Summit. ;)

So, make sure to follow us on Facebook, Instagram, RSS-feed, Youtube, Flipboard and Twitter.

What Will Happen?

Let’s take a look what Fujifilm did at the last Fujifilm X summit in Dubai:

  • they asked the Fujifilm community to vote on future lenses
  • they asked the Fujifilm community to vote on future firmware
  • they showed early Fujifilm GFX concepts, including a modular GFX
  • Fujifilm engineers talked about the X and GFX lenses and camera development
  • Fujifilm managers showed us mock-ups of future lenses such as the the XF33mmf/1.0
  • the showed a Fujifilm GFX100 prototype
  • they explained the Fujifilm color science approach
  • there was a Q&A with the community

That’s about it, and for a compact summary of the entire X Summit of February, just check out this article.

Now, you can see that Fujifilm actually did NOT announce any new gear at the last X summit, so chances are, that also this time we won’t get a full and final announcement of any new camera or lens.

In fact, our sources confirm that the final announcement with full specs and pre-orders for the Fujifilm X-Pro3 will happen on the second half of October.

However…

I know many of you are hoping to see a Fujifilm X-H2 or maybe a Fujifilm X-T3s with IBIS.

I have not heard about it, and if something like this comes, it was Fujifilm’s best kept secret ever. But yes, there is this third mysterious camera registered, and if it comes out 2019, then I honestly have no idea what it could be.

You guys, though, seem to be much more confident: you see high chances for a Fujifilm X-H2 or X100V (but X100V will surely come in 2020 only)

What can be expect more realistically?

Well, the main course of the meal could be other things, like:

Also, there will be several Fujifilm managers to go on stage and give us technical insights, disclose further projects, show even more mock-ups and more. Also gifted photographers like Bert Stephani, David Hobby and Tomasz Lazar will be there.

One Thing is Sure!

One thing is sure:

September 20 will be a very exciting day for the Fujifilm community, and my fast fingers will cover the event at 360° non stop, to make sure you at home don’t miss a single tidbit.
