Nokishita does not say for which camera it is, but in combination with today’s rumor about the improved battery performance on the X-T3, the BC-W126S could indeed be the better battery for the Fujifilm X-T3.
If our assumption is correct, then the fact that it is called still “W126S” could mean that the Fujifilm X-T3 will still be compatible with the NP-W126S batteries. However, it could also be a bigger battery. I will verify it now.
So the current rumored Fujifilm X-T3 specs are:
announcement around photokina (end of September) or shortly before
26MP APS-C X-Trans sensor
stacked sensor (this one take with a grain of salt for now)
Yes I know, here on FujiRumors we already told you about the Fujifilm XF10, a camera, similar in size to the X70, and yet it can’t be considered an XF10 successor, because it has no X-Trans sensor and especially because it has not a Selfie Screen.
Considering the XF10 without Selfie screen a successor to the X70 would be like considering the X-Pro3 without hybrid viewfinder a successor to the X-Pro2.
And indeed, the fact that Fujifilm decided to give the camera an all new name and not X70s or X80, is indication that Fujifilm itself won’t market it as a real X70 successor.
I am sorry guys… for as much love I have for Fujifilm, I simply can’t understand this camera.
And since I am not at all part of Fuji’s marketing machine, but I write what I want when I want with the same freedom of when I started this blog 6+ years ago, I will use my freedom to criticise the XF10.
And while Kevin Mullins accidentally damaged his X70, there are people out there, who like the extra vintage look of scratched X70 and intentionally damage their X70, such as FujiGlitch at our forum here.
2 weeks ago Fujifilm registered a camera, simliar in size to the Fujifilm X70, under the codename FF 180002
We investigated for you and found out that you should stop hoping for a real Fujifilm X70 successor. In fact, the camera will be called Fujifilm XF10 and have no selfie screen as well as no X-Trans sensor. Check out the rumor here.
Well, now nokishita spotted that, according to the same document, the planed release date for the Fujifilm XF10 will be July 5.
& One More – FF 180003
Now nokishita spotted one more digital camera registed with the codename FF 180003. It features bluetooth version 4.2. See the document here.
However, keep in mind that a Fujifilm manager said here that they need 2 years to discuss, develop and finally make a camera and even more than 2 years in case of lenses.
So if in June 2017, when we shared the GF 80mmF1.4 rumor, the discussions about the GF80mmF1.4 just started, then now, 1 year later, IF Fujifilm really decided to go ahead with it, it will take them well over 1 year to come out with it.
Again… if Fujifilm decided to make it all.
But even if Fujifilm decided to make it, you should not expect any GF 80mmF1.4 lens at Photokina 2018, and I’d personally would not expect it before 2020 anyway.
According to our sources, we must add also a tilt shift lens for the GF system to the list of rumored lenses shared back in April 2017, so the updated and complete rumored GF lens list is the following:
GF 35mm F2.8 (coming 2018)
GF 20-36mm F3.5-4.5 (in 2018 this or the GF 100-200)
GF 100-200mm F4.5-5.6 (in 2018 this or the GF 20-36)
GF 80mm F1.4 (not in 2018 – personally I’d not expect it before 2020)
Tilt Shift lens (coming 2018/2019)
Fujifilm plans to release 2/3 GF lenses a year, and since we already got the GF250mmF4 last month, we can expect a maximum of two more lenses in 2018.
Now, for 2018, the Fujinon GF 35mmF2.8 should be sure.
So now it’s your turn guys. Let us know which one you would prefer between the GF20-36, GF-100-200 and the tilt shift lens for 2018.
