HIGH RATING

X-T1 new firmware update is coming (posted August 15)
X100T will have 16mp
X100T successor of X100S
X100T announcement September 10
X100T EVF will have a x0.67 magnification and offer a horizontal apparent field of view of approx. 27°
XF 120-400
X-PRO2 with APS-C sensor
No more X-PRO1S, all R&D placed into the X-PRO2

MEDIUM RATING

XF 35mm MKII (As Fuji has first to complete its lens lineup, it could take a while before the 35 MKII hits the market… and Fuji can change plans in any moment regarding this lens.) PLEASE NOTE: This rumor was not reported accurately by other sites (as petapixel and mirrorlessrumors). They quote FR, but say that the lens is “coming soon”. Which I never said. None of my sources ever told me a release date. In fact I said on May 5th: “I do not know when it will be launched nor which improvements we can expect, but, as you may guess, I’m restlessly working on it.”
Faster AF for the 35mm MKII (This rumor is separated from the first 35MKII rumor, as it comes from another source and was posted in another article)
Button Upgrade
for the early produced X-T1′s with mushy buttons.
X-PRO2 available in 2015
New X-T1 firmware:
shutter speed will increase from 1/4000 to 1/32000 – better movie capabilities – faster/better AF (including phase detection on instant AF) – some other minor improvements (like new film simulation modes) – firmware updates will be released in October and December

LOW RATING

Bokeh Lens: New XF lens with super-smooth bokeh coming? (dual aperture lens / STF)
X-PRO2: available around “this time next year” with more than 16MP (the rumor was shared in late August 2014 by an anonymous source with nick name)
X-PRO2 with 24MP
X-PRO2 priced about 20% to 30% more expensive than the X-T1
Fujifilm will launch three non-interchangeable lens X-cameras within this winter (winter 2014/2015)
Sigma X-mount coming at photokina
Medium Format Fuji (there are several anonymous sources telling me that this rumor is wrong. But I will post an update only when a trusted source speaks. And if they say, as to expect, that it is not correct, I’ll move it into the “wrong rumors” list)
X200 with 24MP, tilt screen, improved AF and wider detection area (Medium rating as I think that some, but not all the specs will be correct. The name has changed almost for sure to X100T). NOTE: The 24MP rumor of the new source has been corrected later on by the tursted Japanese source

2014 rumor check

NOTE: You will see for example some X-T1 rumors (and others) listed sepratately. This is due the fact that there was, for example, a source telling me of a tilt screen, while another told me at a different time about the price and so on.

It’s fair towards my sources not to put everything together in the same pot and simply say “X-T1″, as every rumor listed here comes from a different source and was posted in different articles and could have been right or wrong.

Obviously the same goes for the wrong rumors. I don’t simply say “18-135 announcement”, but shared all 3 wrong release dates separately, so that they result as 3 errors and not as one.

WRONG RUMORS IN 2014

– X-T1P release with 4K viewfinder in July [An upgrade (or special/limited edition) is possible, but not in July] – XF 18-135 announcement on Memorial Day. NOTE: I excluded the rumor of an 18-135 f/3.5-4.8, as this was a typo by Fujifilm at the CP+ (see this image), and I just reported about it.
– XF 18-135 will come in May
– XF 18-135 in stores in February
– X-PRO2 with FF sensor (wrong, and corrected a few weeks later by the top trusted Japanese source)
