BREAKING: Fujinon XF 10-24mm f/4 Mark II Coming Soon

A Fujifilm manager said back in February 2020, that, within the next 12 months, there will be 4 new Fujinon X mount lenses.

One of them is the Fujinon XF50mmF1.0, which will be announced very soon, on September 3rd.

And thanks to our sources, we also already leaked the following lenses:

And today we are going to share the last one to come, the…

  • Fujinon XF 10-24mm f/4 MK II

So, the complete Fujifilm roadmap for the next few months is the following:

So, my job is done. FR unveiled it all for you. Now feel free to do what you can do best here on FujiRumors: commenting and letting us know what you think about it!

My opinion?

Well, the Fujinon XF10-24 is a great lens already (and I own it), but there were two things I never understood:

  1. why Fujifilm didn’t make it weather sealed (sure, there was no weather sealed Fujifilm X camera when the XF10-24 was launched, but the glorious Fujifilm X-T1 would have followed just 2 months after the XF10-24mmF4 release)
  2. why Fujifilm didn’t give it a marked aperture ring, since it has a constant f/4 aperture

I strongly hope that Fujifilm will implement those two features on the upcoming Fujinon XF10-24mm MK II.

COMING SOON: Unveiling the Secret Fujinon XF MK II Lens (Your Guess in the Comments)

Back in February 2020, a Fujifilm manager said that within the next 12 months, there will be 4 new Fujinon X mount lenses.

One of them is the Fujinon XF50mmF1.0, which will be announced on September 3rd.

And the other three?

Well, we already leaked two of them:

And as we told you back in May here, the last one will be a zoom MK II lens.

It’s my pleasure to announce, that very soon I will disclose the missing lens on FujiRumors. Just let me come home from the imminent meeting with my school principal first (yep, I am a teacher, and in this video you can hear one of my students give feedback about my lessons ;) )

I want to be online, when your comments start coming, and see if you will be as surprised, as when I told you that the prime MK II lens will the the XF27mmF2.8 MK II.

See you soon on FujiRumors.

In the meantime, feel free to make your guess in the comments.

  • 01:00 AM New York Time
  • 07:00 AM Rome Time
  • 10:00 PM (of Sept. 2) San Francisco Time

LEAKED: Fujinon XF 50mm f/1.0 Press Text – World’s First F1.0 Autofocus Mirrorless Lens!

The full press text for the Fujinon XF50mm f/1.0 have been leaked by nokishita. You can read it down below.

As FujiRumors reported a few days ago, the Fujinon XF50mm f/1.0 will be announced on September 3 and there will of course be a live blogging covering the event on FujiRumors.

Don’t miss it… we are going to have fun :).

Press Text

World’s First F1.0 Autofocus Lens for Mirrorless Cameras

As the world’s first autofocus F1.0 lens made for any mirrorless system, including full-frame, XF50mm F1.0 brings more light to the sensor than any previous XF lens, making it possible for the autofocus to operate at -7EV luminance level. The previous limit of -6EV luminance level was achieved using lenses with a maximum aperture of F1.4, X Series users now have fast and precise low-light autofocus, even in near-darkness. With the added benefits of on-sensor Phase Detection Autofocus (PDAF), Face/ Eye AF and a powerful DC motor, precise and fast autofocus at shallow depths of field is now a possibility.

Incredibly Shallow Depth-of-Field

The XF50mm F1.0 R WR consists of 12 lens elements in nine groups and also contains one aspherical element and two ED elements to achieve optimum control of spherical aberration. Used at or near to its maximum F1.0 aperture, XF50mmF1.0 R WR can produce an astonishingly narrow depth-of-field. Its precision-engineered, rounded diaphragm produces large, smooth bokeh for a professional look, allowing photographers to create portraits with a striking simplicity and an almost three-dimensional quality with wonderful edge-to-edge sharpness. Photographers can use this new power in selective focus to keep only the subject’s eyes in focus and make captivating close-up character studies. But it’s not just for portraits. Take this lens out onto the street or into a lifestyle session and one can turn cluttered locations into clean backdrops with unrivaled subject separation.

Great in low-light

The very wide maximum aperture on XF50mmF1.0 R WR means there are more options when it comes to making images in low-light conditions. At night, or in darkened interiors, XF50mmF1.0 R WR offers the widest apertures yet seen on an XF lens, allowing more light to be drawn in to make an image. XF50mmF1.0 R WR lens also easily achieves fast shutter speeds that freeze movement and keep ISO settings lower for detail-rich results. Alternatively, combine high ISO settings with the F1.0 aperture for incredible versatility and use in other low-light applications like astrophotography.

Precise Focus

To make the most of its super-shallow depth-of-field, focusing must be precise. As a result, XF50mmF1.0 has a focus ring that is eight times more accurate than any previous XF lens. This makes it possible to change the focus from the minimum focusing distance to infinity very precisely. For this, XF50mm F1.0 R WR uses 120o of rotation in its focusing ring to let users focus manually without error – and achieve accurate focus when using an X Series camera’s Focus Peaking and Focus Assist modes. The 120o of rotation also makes autofocus movements notably precise and deliberate, while the lens’s engineering is designed to minimise focus shift effects when making images.

Weather resistant

This lens is sealed in 11 locations to protect against moisture and dust, as well as being capable of use in temperatures down to -10°C
