Fujinon XF33mm F1.0 R WR: Clutch Focus? Price? AF-speed? and More – Multiple POLLS

Share

Fujinon XF 33mm F1.0

We have pressed Fujifilm to give us the XF33mmF1.0 R WR, and Fujifilm listened: the dream lens of many X shooters will hit the market earliest 1.5 years from now, in 2020.

According to a recent poll we launched, 72% of FujiRumors readers are “interested” to buy this lens. 13% don’t know and only 15% are not interested at all.

But…

… after I launched the poll, fellow FR-reader Jan contacted me and wrote:

“I would like to suggest a poll that takes up your idea how to help Fuji in making the XF33 a great success. I love the idea of a XF33 1.0 lens. Still there are some limits in price, weight and focus speed, that will determine for me if I will buy the XF33. So here’s my suggestion: Can you ask the Fuji community how likely they will buy the XF33 given the following specs [polls below]

My feeling is that there are many unrealistic expectations towards this dream lens and your poll could give Fujifilm a good idea about what the community is willing to accept in order to get one additional stop. […] Your poll may guide Fujifilm the right way and may help them to estimate the potential market.”

Why not? Let’s do it.

I will also add a few options, like

  • would like an XF33mm F1.0 with clutch focus mechanism?
  • Autofocus speed on the XF33mmF1.0 (the 33/1 will be “world’s first mirrorless lens with F1.0 maximum aperture and AF capability“)
  • Cost saving and renounce on weather sealing?
  • OIS anyone?

Keep in mind that, as disclosed on the roadmap, at the current development stage, the Fujinon XF 33mm F1.0 R WR will be weather resistant, have an aperture ring and don’t have OIS.

Happy voting  :)
