Old News You Might Have Missed (XF50mmF2 + Fuji Photokina Page) :: XF100-400 Review@photozone :: XF23mmF2 & More (miXed zone)



XF50mmF2 WR + Fuji Photokina Page

Here on FujiRumors you are used to get the news as soon as it happens, in real-time… and quite often also before it actually happens.

But it can happen, that sometimes someone of you guys might miss a news. That’s why you should check out FujiRumors every day, and you’ll be sure to be first to know about Fuji’s present… and future ;)

So here are two news, that are currently “brand new” according to some, and I keep getting emails about. So I thought it might be time to share it again, so that I won’t get any emails anymore.

Photokina Page

The dedicated Fuji Photokina Page is an old News, shared by Fujifilm on August 25, and also shared on FujiRumors on the very same day. But it seems some might have missed it, since this new page has been launched along with the XF23mmF2 and X-A3. Of course I’ve shared this news in the Live Blogging. But here is the link again.

XF50mmF2 WR

In the X-A3 First Look on Youtube, Fuji Guy Billy mentioned a mysterious XF50mmF2 WR lens. Some people where really surprised by this, and thought Billy just announced a new lens. So time for a short recap: I’ve shared rumors about the 50mmF2 WR back in May here. The lens has the been officially shared in Fuji’s roadmap already back on July 7, Fuji even showed pics about it at an event, and the X-magazine already told us it will come in Spring 2017. So no… Fuji Guy Billy didn’t announce the XF50mmF2.

What’s more interesting, though, is that he mentions the expertise Fujfiilm has in making Medium Format lenses… who knows why ;)

XF100-400 Review at photozone. From the conclusions:

The Fujinon XF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR impressed me quite a bit – not only in the lab but also in the real life. Honestly I was almost about to purchase the lens from the rental company (but I kept my sanity). The center sharpness is very high throughout the zoom range. The borders/corners are also very sharp between 100 and 300mm. Expect slightly softer corners at 400mm though (but then who cares here). Lateral CAs are not a real issue. Most users will keep image auto-correction activated thus neither distortions nor vignetting are issue in this case. The native characteristic isn’t quite as good here though. The quality of the bokeh is very decent for such a lens – at least technically – but don’t expect wonders regarding the depth-of-field at conventional focus distances.”
