RUMOR: Fujifilm Working on Fujinon XF 70-300mm f/4-5.6

Hey there,

If you follow FujiRumors regularly, you will know about the rumor we shared back in March, saying that Fujifilm is working on a Fujinon XF70-300mm lens.

Many of you asked me which aperture range it will have.

Well, today I can finally disclose it.

Fujifilm will release a Fujinon XF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 lens.

Now, not sure if you remember, but over 1 year ago here, Fujifilm publicy asked the Fujifilm community, which lenses they should make next.

Among the options they offered us to vote, there was a Fujinon XF80-300mm f/4.5-5.6.

Personally I am very happy to see them going for lens slightly wider (70mm instead of 80mm) and faster (f4 instead of f4.5). I prefer it even more than a constant f/4 lens, as that one would be bigger, heavier and more expensive.

I hope Fujifilm will be able to keep it rather compact, like the Sigma 100-400mm.

But I’d love to hear what you guys think, so you can vote the survey down below.

I think this super-telephoto lens fits perfectly in the lens lineup, as a natural follow up the XF16-80mm f/4.

Top 20 Fujifilm Manager Statments about Fujifilm X-H2, X100V/X-T3 Firmware, Monochrome, Open X Mount, Fixed Lens GFX and More

With the Fujifilm X-T4 about to hit the market (and actually already shipping in some), Fujifilm managers all over the globe are giving tons of interviews to make the world ready for the best camera it has ever seen to date: the Fujifilm X-T4 :).

Of course, I pre-ordered it, too :)

Now, for your convenience, I always provide a practical summary of all manager statements in my various article, and yet, with so many interviews, there might be some statements you might have missed anyway.

So I thought I filter out those statements, that I consider most relevant, and put them all into this article.

However, there is so much more interesting stuff to read, and so I strongly recommend you to check out all the original articles. I will provide all links below.

Major Fujifilm X-T3 and GFX100 Firmware Update Coming May/June

Let me first say things how they are.

Fujifilm NEVER announced any major firmware update for Fujifilm X-T3. The rumor of a Kaizen X-T3 update has been published here on FujiRumors a few months ago. And it was only a rumor.

Pressed by questions, Fujifilm managers later on just vaguely answered that such a firmware is “under consideration“.

Another thing is the huge update for Fujifilm GFX100. That firmware has been promised by Fujifilm back in February here. The main course of the meal: pixel shift multishot for 400 megapixel images.

Anyone salivating? ;)

Now back to the rumors.

According to our sources, both, the Fujifilm X-T3 as well as the Fujifilm GFX100 firmware updates should be released in the first half of 2020 (which May/June).

I asked if it could come out already in April, but my sources are sure it won’t be April.

And now a mandatory warning!

While I am 100% sure Fujifilm’s current plans are the ones I said above, after almost a decade of my life dedicated to Fujifilm blogging, I can tell you that if there is one thing, that can experience sudden plan changes at any time, then it’s firmware updates.

Fujifilm has a deadline, but especially with firmware updates, those can change quickly. The firmware will be released, only when ready.

And yet, the plan is to come out with both, X-T3 and GFX100 firmware within the first half of the year.

That’s it for now.

But if you want more, just keep us following us ;).
