Which SUPER Fast “FULL FRAME” Lenses Should FUJIFILM Release Next?

Fujifilm’s Next Super Fast Lens

In his big e Fujifilm X-T3 Vs. Canon EOS R, Nikon Z7, Sony A7 III, Sony A7R III and Sony A9 sport photography shootout (which we shared here), Tony Northrup said, that Fujifilm needs faster glass, in order to compete with full frame also in terms of shallow DOF and ISO grain.

The Fujinon XF 200mm F2 and XF 33mm F1.0 are exactly such lenses, but as we reported here, Tony also asks for F1.8 zooms, which would put Fujifilm “in the same league as Full Frame.”

So feel free to let us know in the comments, which super fast Fujinon XF lenses Fujifilm should launch next in order to match full frame.

FYI: Fujifilm managers recently said they will never go full frame.

Fujifilm GFX100 Gets Rid of (Marked) Dials, a Good Idea? VOTE NOW

Fujifilm GFX100 Dials

At photokina 2018, Fujifilm displayed the first mock-up of the Fujifilm GFX100 Megapixel camera, which will be announced in the first half of 2019.

And it could not pass unnoticed to the FR-community, that the Fujifilm GFX100S got rid of the shutter dial, leaving only one unmarked and customizable dedicated dial on the left side.

This change has let to some heated (but civil) discussions at our Fujifilm GFX group here, with the community split between those, who applaude this change, and others, who think Fujifilm should have kept their classic dial layout.

Here are some of the comments from this post:

  • Bigger screen – less dials
  • Bigger back panel – less clunky top plate
  • Its the reason I use Fuji, without I might as well just switch to a different brand
  • Oh please get rid of those useless dials
  • I do like the iso dial. It shortens the iso changing from three steps to one. (I work in the dark, so have to press the lcd light on before pressing the iso button, then adjusting the dial to the right iso)
  • Top dials need to stay
  • I love my dials, but if they made some small buttons with iso/af/wb/etc, I would be able to live with one wheel and no dials
  • Dials are much easier to operate then digging into 2 or 3 level menues

So what do you think? Is it a good move to minimize the amount of dedicated dials and offer only one unmarked dial, or would you prefer to keep the current ergonomics of the Fujifilm GFX 50S?

And wouldn’t that big top LCD be nice, if it was a touch screen? ;)

Fujifilm Manager Says Fujifilm GFX100 has Less Noise than GFX50, Less than 10 fps, OIS/IBIS Combo, X-T3 AF Algorithm and More

Fujiflm GFX100

Fujifilm Manager Mr.Oishi was at the press event for the Fujifilm GFX system in Thailand and also chatted with the media.

The Thai youtube channel กล้องกล้วยกล้วย published 3 videos of the event, but only 2 are of interest for us (see them at the bottom of the article).

And since I don’t want you to lose as much time as I did by listening to Thai questions, the translations into English and then again the Thai translation, I decided to sum up the key points of both videos for you here on FujiRumors.

This and more for my beloved community on FujiRumors ;).

Imagine FUJIFILM would go FULL FRAME Tomorrow Morning…

If Fujifilm Would go Full Frame….

So, top Fujifilm manager Toshi Ilda said it clearly here: “We will NEVER go Full Frame!”

NOTE: this is not an article against full frame. I just try to put myself in Fujifilm’s shoes and see what it would mean for them to go full frame.

Now, apart from the fact that I 100% agree with what CanonWatch said:

Never say never, even if you’re making the best APS-C mirrorless cameras on the market

Remember when Fujifilm said they will never be able to offer IBIS on Fuji X Mount cameras?

Anyway, Fuji says. there won’t be any full frame camera, and according to this huge FujiRumors poll, most of you guys agree with Mr. Toshi.

But imagine…

Imagine Fujifilm would go full frame tomorrow morning.

Mostly due to the slower full frame sensor readout compared to APS-C (as listed in our advantages of APS-C over Full Frame), it would be a Full Frame Fujifilm that:

FUJIFILM X AF Lenses: SIGMA Needs Bigger Market Share, TOKINA Designed X Glass Already but Stopped by Royalties, TAMRON is Vague

I have received a rumor by a new source (thanks) regarding Sigma, Tamron and Tokina lenses for Fujifilm X mount.

  1. Sigma: it depends on Fuji’s market share (we already shared the rumor here)
  2. Tamron gave vague answers to our source (there were rumors of  Fuji support in the past)
  3. Tokina has actually started to design some lenses for Fujifilm already, but they don’t finalize and launch them because of royalties they have to pay to Fujifilm

Of course take it with a grain of salt for now, and if I get any updates, you will read them here on FujiRumors.

But I just remembered, what top Fujifilm manager Toshi said, when DPR asked him here, if Fujifilm welcomes glass by third-party lens manufacturers:

They’re not open standards as yet, but of course our customers want choice. We’re always considering what would benefit our customers, and more lenses are generally beneficial for customers.

Dear Fujifilm, your Fujinon glass is nothing but amazing, but we indeed want more options, and if it’s true that some kind of protectionism is holding off some third-party manufacturers to launch autofocus glass for Fujifilm, then please change your policy.

With that said, we are in the world of “grain of salt” with this rumor for now ;).

But if somebody out there has some knowledge to share, feel free to contact me via email at fujirumor@gmail.com or via anonymous rumor box (use a nick-name if you want, so that I can recognize you if in future you decide to share something else).
