Fujifilm FF210005 Registration Spotted

Nokishita spotted the registration for a new Fujifilm camera with the code name FF210005.

Fujifilm’s digital camera “FF210005” has passed Bluetooth certification. (There is a possibility of X-T30 II, but the specifications of Bluetooth described are different)

Don’t worry, there is not another MKII camera coming this year. It’s probably just the X-T30II, but I will take a look at it for you guys.

The Fujifilm X-H2?

Well, I don’t think. Registrations are spotted usually just 1 to 3 months from the camera release, and the Fujifilm X-H2 is definitely more far away.

Sometimes registrations can be spotted after a camera release, like in case of the Fujifilm X-E4.

Fujifilm Releases X-T3 WW for $100 Less Than Regular X-T3

There was a glorious Fujifilm X Summit, where Fujifilm announced new gear, new roadmaps, gave hints on future sensors and more.

But one thing that passed unnoticed was the release of the “new” Fujifilm X-T3 WW (which stands for “worldwide”) that is $100 more affordable than the regular X-T3 (even when discounted!).

It’s a Fujifilm X-T3 sold without battery charger!

At this price, the Fujifilm X-T3 is now a real steal quite frankly.

The Latest and Greatest

Post X Summit: APS-C X Glory in 2022, Fujifilm X-H2 Confusion, Roadmap Lenses Analyzed, Fujinon XF56mmF1.2II, GF20-35mm Details & More

What a launch that was.

And just like after every launch, there are answers, questions, confusions, hopes, dreams and more.

I will deliberately skip all the stuff you certainly know about. The firmware update announcements for GFX100/S, the specs of the new gear and more. I prefer to clarify, elaborate and add some details coming our from yesterday’s event and that either passed unnoticed or created potential confusion.

At the end, my short take on the event.

  • Patrick, you said there will be an XF56mmF1.2 II coming 2022, but the latest X mount roadmap does not show it

You have no idea how many emails I am getting with this question today :).

Don’t worry guys. The Fujinon XF56mmF1.2 II will come in 2022. Fujifilm does not insert all lenses in the roadmap. The latest example was the XF27mmF2.8 R WR, which just hit the market without ever being on any roadmap.

Trust me, in 2022 the MKII is coming.

  • We know what sensor the Fujifilm X-H2 will have!

Yes, and no.

First of all keep in mind that Fujifilm never mentioned the Fujifilm X-H2. It’s only thanks to FujiRumors that we know that the next X series camera to introduce a new sensor and processor will be the Fujifilm X-H2. A rumor recap below.

So technically we know only that a new sensor is coming. And we also don’t know the time frame for that.

But yes, it will be the X-H2.

However, you guys also know that there will be two Fujifilm X-H2 cameras. Will both feature an X-Trans BSI stacked sensor? And if so, what will be the other differences?

So there is still some confusion here… confusion that FujiRumors is going to dissipate soon enough ;).

Let’s move on.

  • Is Fujinon XF35mmF1.4 R now discontinued as some “rumors” said?

Oh my gosh, I had a good laugh when I read that fake rumor on the web. Of course it is not. And finally also Jonas Rask, Fuji Guy Billy and many others repeated in their first looks that the XF35mmF1.4 is here to stay.

  • Fujinon GF20-35mm but which aperture?

You might remember how back in 2017 I have shared an internal Fujifilm G mount roadmap.

Everything in that roadmap came to light, everything but the GF20-36mm.

Well, it was a long wait, but now we have it. With a slight difference, it will be Fujinon GF20-35mm instead of GF20-36.

But what aperture will it have?

Well, according to our leaked roadmap, the original plan was a f3.5-4.5 lens, so it could well be a Fujinon GF20-35mm f/3.5-4.5 at the end.

But keep in mind that during the presentation Fujifilm remarked several times that they want to keep this lens compact and portable, and first mockups you can see in our X summit coverage definitely show a lovely sized lens. I don’t know if for the sake of size Fujifilm will make it a bit slower. However, their target is definitely an f/3.5-4.5 lens.

  • Fujinon GF55mm f/1.7 and GF tilt shift – and More Details?

Not many.

But we did share images of mockups here.

What we can see is that similar to the GF80mmF1.7, the GF55mmF1.7 will not have a linear motor (saves size) and a filter size of 77.

The tilt shift lens is currently planed as Fujinon GF30mm F4 R TS with a 105 filter size.

  • Conclusion

I think it was a great event, that gave us good hints on which direction Fujifilm is taking. And most importantly, it shows that Fujifilm is extremely committed to both the X and GFX series, which got basically the same coverage during the event (5 minutes more for the GFX system in a one hour video).

And by ending their X summit with sensor hints for the next APS-C sensor generation, they wanted to set a clear signal that even though 2021 was more of a GFX year in terms of released gear, 2022 will see the X series come back in full power and glory.

And trust me, I know what I talk about… and if I was you, I’d always keep an eye on FujiRumors, as you might learn some very interesting stuff ;).

Fujinon XF150-600mm and XF18-120mm Size Comparison with XF18-135 vs XF16-80mm vs XF200mm and More

What you see here is the most accurate size comparison possible based on technical sketches Fujifilm provided during the Fujifilm X summit that took place earlier today.

We compare:

Of course this is based on technical sketches, so don’t expect it to be 100% accurate, as things will change from here to the 2022. But so far, for a lens of that range, it does not look bad at all.

Also, if you read FujiRumors regulary, and if you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that the Fujinon XF18-135mm lens is one of my favorite lenses. You can see samples I took with the XF18-135 on my instagram here and here and here and even more. Well, at the Fujifilm X summit, which we covered in detail here, Fujifilm announced the Fujinon XF18-120mm.

So based on the technical sketched delivered during the event, I have made an accurate size comparison between the following lenses:

Yes, it is longer than the XF18-135mm, but keep it mind that we don’t know its aperture now, and that Fujifilm said during the Fujifilm X Summit that this will be lenses that are suitable also for video, so I guess they will be designed with minimal focus breathing, silent autofocus, clickless aperutre ring and other features that are needed for video creators.

But if you shoot stills mainly (like me), I guess the XF18-135 or XF16-80 are still the better pick for you.
