In case you are late, don’t worry, down below I will provide written live summary on what has been said and shown, so you don’t miss out anything.

X Summit Summed Up

Lenses

  • initial demand for XF16-80 is very big, and factory is busy to try to cover inital demand
  • first mock-up, XF33mm f/1.0 customer said it is too big and heavy, but size was inevitable for corner to corner sharpness. You need lots of front glass to eliminate aberrations
  • the latest XF33mm f/1.0 has become even bigger. With 15 elements it will weight over 1.3 kg. Needs tripod mount.
  • to make it smaller, Fujifilm needed either to make it slower, or to change focal length
  • Fujifilm decided to change from 33mm f/1.0 to 50mm f/1.0 to make the lens smaller (35% smaller and weight under 900 gram)
  • XF 50mm f/1.0 will have richer and smoother bokeh
