Sigma: “We May See Some Sigma Lenses for Fujifilm X Mount in 2021”

Back in November 2020, we reported how Sigma was vaguely hinting that something might possibly come for Fujifilm in 2021.

But since it was very vague, I did contact trusted sources and investigated further. They confirmed in December 2020 here, that Sigma lenses for Fujifilm X mount might indeed be scheduled for 2021.

Yesterday Sigma fueled speculations again, by saying on their official media channels:

Fujifilm Patent: 48mm F1.2 Lens for Mirrorless Camera with 1 inch-type Sensor

A patent has been spotted of a 48mm f/1.2 lens for mirrorless cameras with 1 inch-type sensor at here via hi-lows-note.

FUJIFILM filed a patent describing lenses for short wave infrared cameras with 1″-type sensor.

Fujifilm was once very active in the compact camera segment, with cameras like the Fujifilm XF1 but especially the Fujifilm X10, X20 and X30 series as well as the Fujifilm XQ1 and XQ2.

All these cameras featured a 2/3 sensor (in some cases an excellent 2/3 X-Trans sensor).

However, Fuji’s 2/3″ sensor camera line didn’t get the success it deserved and its last model, the X30, got discontinued in 2016. The market prefered 1″ sensor compact cameras like the Sony RX100 series.

But both, the 2/3″ as well as 1″ sensor compact camera market is basically dead now, due to smartphone cameras getting better.

A curious fact?

Fujifilm used to make its own sensors in the past, but then sold their sensor business to Toshiba. But guess who came in 2015 and bought the sensor business from Toshiba? You got, it was Sony back in 2015!

I wonder if somebody at Fujifilm regrets that decision today.

New Fujifilm Camera FF200002 Registered on January 31, 2021, and Why It’s a Curious Case (X-E4)

FR-reader Kent (thanks), just informed me that he spotted the registration made on January 31, 2021, of a new Fujifilm digital camera with the code name FF200002.

The strange thing here is, that in terms of registrations we had two registered cameras recently:

  • FF200001 registered Sept. 2, 2020 = X-S10
  • FF200003 registered Dec. 14, 2020 = GFX100S

It was just a matter of time until the FF200002 would appear, and it did so on January 31 at the launchstudio bluetooth registration page here.

So which camera is the FF200002?

The answer is: the Fujifilm X-E4!

I know that, because I have watched countless of youtube videos about the X-E4, and in one of them I noticed that when the screen was flipped out, on the backside of the camera you could read “FF200002“.

But it’s strange: the X-E4 is the first camera that gets registered after it has been announced. We told you in this article that it Fujifilm usually registers cameras from 1 to 6 months ahead of announcement.

Well, I guess this means from now on we have to count also with the possibility, that Fujifilm will announce cameras without them appearing first on some sort of registration website. But don’t worry about that, I will let you know in advance anyway what will come ;).

So let’s update our original article, where we illustrate the time span between registration and announcement of new Fujifilm gear:

  • registered 1 month before announcement = 4 cameras (X-T2, X-E3, X-T100, X-T30)
  • registered 2 months before announcement = 3 cameras (X-T20, X100F, XF10)
  • registered 3 months before announcement = 3 cameras (X-T3, GFX50R, GFX100)
  • registered 6 months before announcement = 2 cameras (X-H1, X100V)
  • registered 4 days after after announcement = 1 camera (X-E4)
