Many started speculating if maybe Fujifilm would have implemented an f/1.4 lens, but according to our information, the lens will be still a 23mm f/2 lens.
However, there will be tweaks making this new lens technically superior to the one on the X100F, which, I remind you, is the same lens we find on the original 12 megapixel Fujifilm X100 announced back in 2010.
First off I want you take this information with a grain of salt, as it comes from an anonymous source with nickname (thanks for sharing).
If I will be able to confirm any of the information, I will let you know.
Here is what the new source told us:
Name: Fujifilm X-T4
Improved battery life
best in class EVF
Except for IBIS, I can’t confirm anything for now.
Now, on FR we are proud to share about 60 rumors a year with a 90+% accuracy.
But a significant part of this community also asked me to be less conservative, take more risks, and share more anonymous/new source rumors I get, even if that would mean maybe falling back to a 70% accuracy.
I am still rather reluctant to do so, but today I try to follow your advice, and share this rumor, even if it’s unconfirmed until now. But this will be more of an exception, as I want to keep my hit rate very high.
And who knows, even our long time trusted sources started as new sources. So let’s hope that todays’ source will be generous with the FR community, and share further details in future.
To the source: thanks a TON for the nickname! Makes things easier. Regarding X100V, I am working on that rumor, and will post an update soon.
Personally I was always a big fan of the X-T100 screen, as it allows you to tilt the screen up and down and keep the LCD still centered to the camera, and still had a “selfie” position. Now with the X-A7 screen, whenever you want to tilt up and down, you’ll have to flip it out all the way to the side and off-centered to the camera.
But I am aware I am in the minority here. You guys want X-A7 screen, so Fujifilm delivers!
