RUMOR: New Fujinon X Mount Lens Roadmap with One Prime and One Zoom Mark II Lens – Vote Your Favorite

A Fujifilm manager told us back in February, there will be 4 Fujinon X mount lenses coming in the next 12 months (meaning latest within February/March).

FujiRumors already told you that those would be the Fujinon XF 50mm f/1.0, the Fujinon XF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 and two Fujinon X mount MK II Lenses.

And to be more specific, there will be one X mount prime MK II lens and one X mount zoom MK II lens.

So the recap:

Down below you can find two survey, where I include all older lenses. Well, not really all. I decided to focus on those, that are not weather sealed and I only included XF lenses (not XC lenses).

The FujiRumors picks?

In terms of primes, I own 4 or 6 primes listed below. From those four, the one I desire most is an XF27mmF2.8 MK II with aperture ring (weather sealing not so important in my case).

Why not refresh the magical XF35mm f/1.4? Well, first off, already in February 2019, I wrote a post, where I argued why they should not refresh that lens. In addition to the reasons given there, I add that there are lots of 35mm lenses already out there, and now that also the Viltrox 33mm f/1.4 AF lens hit the market, I don’t see any urgency to refresh it.

Also, after Fujifilm axed the Fujinon XF33mm f/1.0 in favor of the Fujinon XF50mm f/1.0, what I really want now is an XF35mm f/1.2.

In terms of zooms, I own all three in the list below. They all are in need of a refresh, and I have a favorite MK II candidate also in this case. But I won’t say anything here and just see what you guys vote down below.

Wasabi Currently Working on NP-W235 Battery for Fujifilm X-T4

A FR reader contacted Wasabi/Blue Nook, asking if they plan to release NP-W235 batteries for the Fujifilm X-T4.

This is what Wasabi replied to him:

The factory is currently working on that battery. Unfortunately, we do not have an ETA on when it will be available.

Wasabi is arguably one of the most appreciated third party Fujifilm batteries and chargers manufacturer. I think (but I am not sure), they are sold as Patona in Europe, which is also my third party battery brand of choice.

You know: the Fujifilm X-T4 comes with a brand new NP-W235 battery. They aren’t exactly the most affordable batteries, but considering that they do perform significantly better than the older NP-W126/S batteries for about the same price, I think that they are worth the money. But nice to see Wasabi coming with some more affordable options.

Fujinon XF 27mm f/2.8 R with Aperture Ring Listed at Some Stores: A Dream Come True or a Sweet Illusion?

A FR-reader contacted me, informing me that it’s a while now that several stores worldwide list the Fujifilm XF27mm f/2.8 R, where “R” stands for “aperture ring”.

As a happy owner of the Fujinon XF27mm f/2.8, a MK II version of this lens with aperture ring would be a dream come true!

But you know, I run this blog since a long, a very long, time. I shared my Fuji passion on FujiRumors, when probably most of you didn’t even know the X series existed. And I remember everything of this long journey.

I remember also this:

Back in 2013, when the Fujinon XF27mm f/2.8 was not yet officially announced, Fujifilm showed 27mm mock-ups around at various photography fairs. The mock-ups had indeed an aperture ring, as you can see here.

But at the end, the final version came out without an aperture ring.

So what’s going on now?

Well, as much as I’d love to believe that this is some sort of leaked image of an upcoming XF27mm f/2.8 with aperture ring, at this point in time I believe more that this is just an error. Probably a pre-release mock-up rendering by Fujifilm, that found its way in the final specs sheets distributed to retailers and press, and hence kept circulating.

With that said, there will be two Mark II lenses coming in the next 10 months. If one of those would be the Fujinon XF27mm f/2.8 Mark II with aperture ring, that would make me very happy.

But so far, I do not know which are the two lenses… but it’s a work in progress ;).

Fujifilm X Lens Roadmap: Two Fujinon MK II Lenses Coming Between Now and March 2021 plus XF50mmF1.0 and XF70-300mmF4-5.6

You might remember, how back at the awesome Fujifilm X summit in February, the Japanese Fujifilm manager said there will be 4 new lenses coming within the next 12 months.

One of them is the Fujinon XF50mm f/1.0.

FujiRumors investigated, and told you already a few weeks ago, that another one will be the Fujinon XF70-300mm f/4-5.6.

And now, thanks to a trusted source, we can tell you that the remaining two lenses will be Mark II versions of existing lenses.

So, from now to March 2021 we will get:

Whenever I can, I will let you know, which one will be updated (I honestly do not know at this point in time). But don’t miss it when it happens, and follow FujiRumors.
