Fujinon XF33mmF1.4 vs XF35mmF1.4 Size Comparison [UPDATED – And WHY]


Yesterday I have shared [quote] “an approximate size comparison between the upcoming Fujinon XF33mm f/1.4 R LM WR and the glorious XF35mm f/1.4 R.”

Well, today I have to share a minor update to the original size comparison. The latest comparison can be seen above.

Now, as you can see, there is not much difference. The Fujinon XF33mmF1.4 R LM WR is sensibly bigger than the Fujinon XF35mmF1.4 R. However, in today’s size comparison, it is a tiny bit smaller than in yesterday’s mockup.

But in any case, if you desire a super fast autofocus, ultra high resolution and weather resistant lens, the XF33mm f/1.4 will be inevitably bigger than the the XF35mmF1.4.

I can hear you, why the (minor) adjustment in size today?

Well, it’s pretty simple.

I have made a couple of size comparisons taking the Fujinon XF18mmF1.4 as a base (I just changed the number “18 with “33”) and resized it in different versions. I have submitted those to sources asking which one they think could be the most accurate. I ended up with the recommendation of the mockup you can see today. However, yesterday I erroneously picked the wrong mockup. My sources noticed this, and asked me to correct it.

I apologize for that and I hope you value at least that it took me less than 24 hours to rectify my little error. ;)

And yet, it may be an error, but it doesn’t change the substance: the XF33mmF1.4 is and will be noticeably bigger than the XF35mmF1.4. Which is one of the reasons why FujiRumors always told you that this lens is NOT a replacement for the original XF35mmF1.4.
