RUMOR: Fujinon XF 50mm f/1.0 Coming 2020 for Around $1,500

I have received word (thanks), that the price of the Fujinon XF50mm f/1.0 should be about $1,500.

Of course the price is one of those things, Fujifilm can change until just a few days before official launch, so take it with a grain of salt for now. But the fact I share it today, means I got multiple confirmation that Fujifilm is targeting that price.

Curiosity: just recently a fellow X-T group member here, asked people how much they think the XF50mmF1.0 will cost. Lots of people guessed a price around $2,000. So for many the rumored price tag will come as a pleasant surprise.

As Fujifilm managers said in various interviews (such as here), the Fujinon XF50mmF1.0 will come in 2020.

In previous coverage about the XF50mmF1.0, such as in this dedicated XF50mmF1.0 article, we got some initial specs:

  • weight under 1 kilo
  • minimum aperture f/16
  • 77 mm filter size
  • more beautiful bokeh than the XF56mm f/1.2
  • first autofocus demo (contrast AF only) at minute 43:07 in the live stream video
  • the final lens will of course support also PDAF

Back in February, Fujifilm managers officially said there will be 4 new lenses within the next 12 months, and thanks to our sources we know that they will be:

Fujifilm Spirit Level Patent for Fujifilm GFX100 and other Top LCD cameras such as Fujifilm X-H1 and X-H2?

As we reported already in the past, Fujifilm is very active when it comes to patents about new ergonomic solutions:

The one below is just another one of those :).

It clearly shows a Fujfiilm GFX100, hence it might eventually find its way into the Fujifilm GFX100 via firmware update and to other cameras with top LCD, such as the Fujifilm X-H1 and Fujifilm X-H2.

Here is the description of the patent by the Japanese site dclife (google translated):

The design for displaying the electronic level on the Fujifilm camera top sub-monitor has been registered with the Japan Patent Office. I don’t follow patent related information very much in life, but I was interested in it personally, so I would like to pick it up. FUJIFILM will apply for the design on May 22, 2019, and will be the design registration 1657892 issued on April 1, 2020.

Taking “GFX100” as an example, the top sub-monitor of “GFX100” supports INFO display, dial display, and histogram. Perhaps future products may support the electronic level display. I am also worried about the contents that can be supported by firmware update.

Personally, I use the sub-monitor on the top only for tripod shooting and night shooting, but I think it would be useful to increase the user’s usage by switching the display. Perhaps it may come in handy when shooting on a tripod or low angle.

Rumors 2020

Half a year of rumors is over, and it was probably the most successful we ever had on FujiRumors.

With a total amount of 44 rumors shared, we are currently sharing more rumors than ever in the years before.

The Fujifilm X-T4 was without a doubt the big one in 2020, and I frankly can’t remember if FR ever leaked so much about one single camera, as we did with the Fujifilm X-T4.

At this point BIG thanks to all our sources, for helping me to keep the Fuji X community on fire. Being a Fuji X/GFX shooter is just more fun, if every now and then we get something hot to talk about… ;).
