Samyang says: “All our existing lenses will have X-mount in future”

Now, time for a rumor update to what belongs Samyang’s X-mount lens lineup.

In late August photorumors said that there would be a Samyang 12mm f/2.0 lens for Fuji X-mount. I checked Samyang’s website and there was another lens listed, the 10mm f/2.8. Anyway, photorumors confirmed: the Samyang 12mm will come too. That’s good to know.

But what is the situation now? The 10mm f/2.8 disappeared from the Samyang lens lineup (as you can see from the screenshot here, it was still up in late August).

But here is the good news: According to a facebook comment of Samyang Asia all the existing lenses will have X Mount in future! At Trenton’s question if there is any release roadmap for the X-mount lenses, Samyang answered: “Will be available soon!”

At the moment, the X-mount lenses of Samyang are:

Samyang 8mm: Amazon, Adorama, B&H, eBay Samyang 300mm mirror lens: Amazon, Adorama, B&H, eBay Samyang 16mm f/2.0: Amazon, Adorama, B&H, eBay Samyang 24mm f/3.5 Tilt Shift: Amazon, Adorama, B&H, eBay

To see the whole interchangeable lens lineup of Samyang visit their website here. Check it out and tell us which of the existing “non X-mount” Samyang lenses you’d consider to pruchase once it gets the X-mount!

thanks Trenton!

Weather sealed X: double SD-card slot and OMD shape?

 photo 32_zps6e246d6a.jpg

X-E2: just 2 silver X-E2 with kit lens available at ebayUS at kenmorecamera here / A FR-reader told me that he just received his silver X-E2 (body only) from pictureline

_ _ _

and now the rumors ;)

A quick rumor update before I go back at work: a trusted source told me that the weather sealed X coming in January will have double SD card slots.

The design? A new source said that the camera body will be “something like OMD (E-M1 – E-M5) shape“.

I remind you that previous rumors I’ve shared with you said it will feature an APS-C X-Trans sensor II, have a high performance EVF… and cost more than the X-E2. Now I’m curious to see if the XF 10-24, that should be announced November 20, will be the first weather sealed lens.

That’s it for now, but stay tuned for more… and spread the word via facebook, google+ and twitter! And I don’t mind if you quote the source ;).

X-E1 (and PRO1?) firmware update coming soon?

Strong sales at AmazonUS for the X-E2. At the moment it’s ranked 2, 6 and 9th! Check the CSC-ranking here. And the silver kit is also in stock.

Take it with a grain of salt, but that’s the story: A Canadian FR-reader had a talk with a Fuji-rep at Quebec’s photo & video. The Fuji-rep told him that there will be an X-E1 firmware update “very soon”, but he didn’t tell anything about the details of the update… so you’re still free to fly with you imagination. What would you like to have improved? Villi Asgeirsson said on the FR-facebook wall that he’d like to have full manual control in video mode.

The FR-reader couldn’t tell me if the update will be compatible also with the X-PRO1. But in the past Fuji updated both cameras contemporaneously. So let’s hope also this time.

I remind you that back in July (see here) there where rumors saying for example that focus peaking on the E1/PRO1 will get more colour options.

If true, it seems that we could have another Kaizen-day right in time for X-mas!

But remember, the X100 firmware update was scheduled for September (or even earlier), but Fuji was able to release it only in October (btw, well worth the wait!). Delays are always possible. So I’ll believe it only when I see it ready for download at Fuji’s global website.

Have a good start in this new week.

Hi all

Just a quick rumor to tell you that it has been whispered to me that the XF 10-24 could be announced on November 20 and the XF 56mm on January 6.

These are the last 2 lenses in the actual Fuji roadmap… So I think it’s time for Fuji to release an updated one.

What do you think should be the next lenses on Fuji’s roadmap? Feel free to drop your dream-lens-roadmap in the comments.

cheers

Hi all!

I had an interesting chat with two of our trusted sources (the Japanese source and a „long time“ source). Here is what they told us about Fuji’s next X-camera:

They both say: Fuji will launch a weather sealed camera.

– The trusted Japanese source said it will feature an APS-C X-Trans II sensor.
– The „long time“ trusted source said it will have a big high-performance EVF.

So, to everyone wondering what camera Fuji could squeeze between the X-E and X-PRO line… the answer is: a weather sealed X! And it should be announced at the CES in January!
