A Huge Fujifilm Day Needs a Huge FujiRumors Recap
Lucky me that I am on holiday in South Italy, Tropea, right now… because here coffee is super strong, cheap and delicious… and I take tons of it in these days, to survive the immense and sleepless live blogging and rumors.
But I canceled all my planed day trips, island hopping boat tours, the sunset/sunrise photographing, and I will remain locked in my room with my 3G hotspot to deliver you guys what you deserve: the best Fujifilm coverage in the known universe ;)
It’s just an fun moment to be a Fujifilm shooter, and in the last 24 hours a lot happened.
So I thought it’s time to give you a quick summary of what happened, just in case you tuned in on FR only now, or in case you are confused by all the articles.
NEW LENS ROADMAP
You might remember how 1.5 years ago, I asked you guys what you would like to see next from Fujfiilm. I got several thousands lens suggestions, and I worked day and night to sum up all your ideas into 30 lenses.
And then over 15,000 of you voted, and the result was clear
- most wanted zoom: XF 16-80mm F4
- most wanted prime: XF 33mm F1
Of course I knew Fujifilm will take note of our wishes. But not only they took note, the copied them 1:1, so now we will get them both… plus one more, the XF 16mm F2.8, which I think is mainly ment to be a fine Vlogging lens. Now I wonder… does Fujifilm really read your comments and look at your poll votes ??? ;)
So here is the magic trio that will be soon part of the roadmap.
- XF 16mm f2.8 R WR
- XF 16-80mm f4 R LM OIS WR
- XF 33mm F1 R WR
