Fujifilm was the most busy camera brand of all in 2022.
Now the question is: can the Fujifilm year 2023 match the year 2022 in terms of product launches?
Well, let’s look at it.
LENSES in 2023
I have looked at the past announcements (until back to 2018), and I saw that Fujifilm has launched between 4 to 7 lenses a year.
For 2023, Fujifilm has already announced 4 lenses. That’s just one lens less than what we got in 2022 (5 lenses).
In 2022 the focus was on X mount lenses and so far in 2023 Fuji’s priority seems to be releasing more GF lenses.
But will there be more lenses?
I don’t know yet, but it would not be unusual for Fujifilm to launch lenses that they have not yet on the roadmap, especially if those are MKII lenses. And there is a MKII lens very high on your wishlist.
And then there are of course your top lens wishes, which we have shared here.
Cameras in 2023
Looking back until 2018, Fujifilm has launched from 3 to 7 cameras a year.
However, the one year they launched 7 cameras, 4 of them were entry level cameras developed by the Xacti corporation. According to multiple hints Fujifilm managers gave in several occasions, I highly doubt we will ever see another entry level camera. The cooperation with Xacti seems to be over!
So 7 cameras seems to be an unrealistic number (as we can exclude entry level).
The average is about 3 to 4 cameras.
Of course I am working on it and I will let you know as soon as I can.
- for the X series, you guys are hungry for rangefinder styled cameras, preferably with 40MP
- for the GFX series, you guys desire more speed rather than more megapixel
But stay tuned on FujiRumors… I am making steady progress in finding out what we will get in 2023.
