Fujinon XF16-80mmF4 and XF16mmF2.8
UPDATE: Our sources told us that Cameranu is wrong and that the lenses will come in 2019 as written on the roadmap – full report here
A few days ago Cameranu (an important Dutch store and also an authorized Fujifilm dealer) listed the XF16-80mmF4 WR, the XF33mmF1.0 and XF16mmF2.8 at their store.
Officially, Fujifilm’s latest roadmap says the XF16-80mm F4 and XF16mm F2.8 will come in 2019, whereas the XF33/1 in 2020.
But there could be a pleasing surprise :)
After reading the article on FujiRumors, one of our readers contacted Cameranu and asked them more details about the lenses.
Well, the store answered, and the reader send me the screenshot of the stores’ email. It’s in Dutch, and here is what it says in short:
“The expected shipping date for the XF16-80mmF4 is November“
It is not super clear, but it seems that also the XF16mmF2.8 could ship this year.
Cameranu expects to get more details about these lens pretty soon.
If this information is accurate, then I guess we can expect the lenses (except for the XF33/1) to be annonced along with the Fujifilm X-T3 very soon.
I guess Camernu does not make up just some stuff to fool their customers. If they say this, then I am sure it is because their Fujifilm rep told them so.
