Don’t Worry: Fujinon GF35-70mm f/4.5-5.6 is Weather Sealed
FujiRumors told you already back in March (!!!) that Fujifilm will launch the Fujifilm GFX50SII.
And over all these months, we have leaked, price, specs, release date and more.
We have also told you that, along with the Fujifilm GFX50SII, Fujifilm will launch a new and affordable zoom lens, the Fujinon GF35-70mmF4.5-5.6.
When we leaked the first details (no aperture ring, $500 kit price, etc), some FR-readers were sure that this would be the G mount equivalent of the Fujinon XC lenses, hence just a plastic mount and possibly not even weather sealing, in order to keep it as cheap as possible.
But that’s not correct.
The Fujinon GF35-70mmF4.5-5.6 will have a metal mount and, that’s today’s rumor, according to our sources it will also be weather sealed!
