27mm f2.8 pancake lens announced in June?

Somewhere over the world there was a Fujirumors reader having an informal talk with a Fuji-rep. The Fuji-rep dropped the following information into conversation: the 27mm f2.8 “pancake” lens will be announced (but not yet sold) in June. Then the reader had the good idea to tell it to me… and you know how carefully I keep secrets ;). Of course take this rumor with a grain of salt. I don’t know anything from trusted sources about the 27mm lens.


P.S.: Be sure to be on Fujirumors on Wednesday. Fuji will announce the 55-200mm lens and what’s even more interesting…they will also show an updated lens roadmap!

Confirmed: 55-200mm announcement on April 17th!

I can confirm now that on April 17th Fuji will officially launch the 55-200mm lens and update the roadmap. You should definitely read Fujirumors that day!

thanks a lot for liking us on Facebook, following on Twitter and subscribing the RSS feed. Keep it up!

Now, the 55-200 is almost here. But there are 4 more lenses on Fuji’s “old” roadmap. Which one would you like to be released next?

What’s special about April 17? It’s my birthday, exactly! Oh, and Fuji will announce a zoom lens (probably the 55-200mm)… Fuji will also update the lens-roadmap! So don’t forget to read Fujirumors on April 17.

That’s it!

RUMOR UPDATE: X-PRO2 coming late 2013 early 2014

I promised you that I’d come back as soon as trusted sources told me more, so here I am.

According to these sources, that were right in the past, Fuji won’t launch the X-PRO2 before late 2013 early 2014. So now I can exclude with certainity that, as rumored first in this Nippon Magazin, the X-PRO2 will be available in June.

So, still time to give Fuji some advice about how we’d like the X-PRO2 to be. Just write your wish list in the comments. I got some suggestions via email.

1) flip screen
2) wifi
3) touch screen
4) Allow customisation of the Q menu
5) focus peaking (where you can choose colour)
6) environmental sealing (from the comments. keep up your suggestions)

Some of these suggestions (for the X100S) can be found over here at

Feel free to extend this hardware and software improvements-list for the future X-PRO2 in the comments.
