 photo XF16 1.4R WR Nano-GI _zpsaz9vd1ed.jpg

According to a trusted source (thanks) the Fujinon XF16mm F1.4 R WR will be announced this week.

It will weigh 375g, have a filter size of 67mm, a Focus range from 0.15m to ∞ , 13 elements 11 groups, 9 (rounded diaphragm opening) 1/3EV (22 steps).

So it seems we are going to have a hot week here on FR. And if you want to support FR with no extra costs, than this could be the right moment. Pre-order the XF 16mmF1.4 using the FR-shoplinks, and with your support, I’ll be able to keep the rumors coming in future ;). Thanks guys!

Source Confirms: Fujifilm X-PRO2 with 1/8000 shutter… and Sync Speed faster than 1/180th!

 photo snyc_zpsei2zfiox.jpg

I’ve just received a confirmation from a source, who was right in the past, that the mechanical shutter of the X-PRO2 will go up to 1/8000 s. Moreover, the X-PRO2 will have a faster sync speed than the current 1/180 of the X-T1 & CO.

The source also says we won’t see it coming before September. So once more the release in late 2015 seems to be confirmed. I keep up hoping for an X-PRO2 under my X-mas tree.

Since this source contacts me anonymously via rumor box using a nick-name, I can not contact it to ask for more details about the sync speed or the X-PRO2 in general.

You might remember dc.home forum member joofei, who shared a bunch of wild rumors about Fuji’s upcoming gear at the Chinese forum (see wild rumors 1 and wild rumors 2).

Well, he just shared some new information here at dc.home. Some sound very weird… but I’ll just report them here and leave any considerations to you.

Joofei says that there could be 2 versions of the X-PRO2.

VERSION 1: This version matches exactly with the rumors shared here on FR over the last months: APS-C sensor, 24MP, Dual Card slot… so nothing new.

VERSION 2: The second X-PRO2 version will have, according to joofei, the following specs:

– 25.6 x 17.3 APS-X sensor
– 25-27 MP
– OLD LENS WITH 1.x FACTOR [admin: if I understand the google translated version correctly, all current XF lenses will be compatible with this new sensor] – BIG OVF + EVF

I have no rumors about an X-PRO2 with a completely new 25.6 x 17.3 APS-X sensor format (that’s between APS-H with 27.9×18.6 and APS-C with 23.6×15.6). For now I give to this rumor a very low rating. I’ll just note that, if you look closely at the April’s Fool Joke made up by an official Fujifilm X-photographer here, you’ll see that some of his “fake” features match with those of joofei. Here are the X-photographer specs:

– Sensor 10% bigger than the previous one, so that you can use the “old” lenses, with a crop factor of 1.2x [admin: FR-reader David calculated a drop factor of 1.4] – 27 MP
– Hybrid viewfinder (as X100T, but with X-T1 dimensions)

As the X-photographer himself said in the comments about his joke: “Who knows how many of these features will be in the next Fuji?”

Now, either both are just having fun and posted similar fake specs, or there is something worth to investigate behind these very wild rumors.

Will there ever be a Fujifilm X-E3? Source says Fuji is debating whether to make it or not!

 photo e3_zpswhbuzaaj.jpg

I know, here on FujiRumors you are used to get answers about upcoming Fuji gear, and not questions.

But today (with the expressed permission of a source) I decided to share the Fujifilm X-E3 “rumor-riddle” in reply to all those asking me information about it via email and in the comments.

The question is the following: “Will there ever be a Fujifilm X-E3“?

You might remember how back in January I’ve shared some “Wild Rumors” (Nr.1 and Nr.2) of a dc.home forum member called joofei. It was a very long list of rumors, some plausible, others pretty weird. I’ve contacted my sources and we talked about it.

For now I can confirm just one thing that joofei said over at dchome: there really was (and probably still is) a debate inside Fujifilm, about whether they should make or not the Fujifilm X-E3.

Will the Fujifilm X-E3 ever become real? As soon as any of my sources has 100% certainty about Fuji’s final decision, I’ll post an update for you here on FujiRumors… so stay tuned and follow FR on Facebook, Google+, RSS-feed and Twitter.

Now I’d like to hear what you guys think about it. Should Fuji make an X-E3 or not? Vote the poll and feel free to drop your considerations in the comments.

Anonymous source says the XF 90mm F2 will come in July and be “Fujinon at its best!”

 photo k_zpsxbc6jzs7.jpg

An anonymous source (with nick-name) just shared with us the following rumor: the XF 90mm F2 will come in July.

The source also claims it had the opportunity to see some samples taken with a prototype circulating in the US and says it is “Fujinon at its best. Probably best XF prime!”

I remind you that Fuji Guy Greg said to BigHeadTaco here that it will be weather sealed.
