UPDATE – Fujinon XF 16-80mm F4 (and XF16/2.8?) Shipping in November 2018 says Authorized Fujifilm Seller – To be announced with Fujifilm X-T3?

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.

Waiting is the Hardest Part :) – Fujinon XF33mm F1.0, 16-80 F4 and 16 F2.8 Listed at EU Store

New Fujinon Lenses

Weekend curiosity :)

Recently we have asked you in a poll, which one of the new lenses on the Fujifilm XF roadmap you are interested to buy.

Turns out the XF33mmF1.0 is the most desired lens in the community, followed by the XF 16-80mmF4 and las the XF16mmF2.8.

And just like many of us are impatiently waiting for the XF 33mm f/1.0, it seems that stores can’t wait to finally start selling the “world’s first mirrorless lens with F1.0 maximum aperture and AF capability“.

In fact, EU store Cameranu has already listed as available for pre-order the XF 33mm F1.0, which, according to the Fujifilm roadmap, will be available in 2020.

Cameranu also listed the XF 16-80/4 and XF 16/2.8. Down below you can find the product description.

I remind you that, based on technical sketches delivered by Fujifilm, here on FujiRumors you can already find size comparisons between the XF16mmF2.8 and XF16-80mmF4 Vs. other Fujinon lenses.

Fujifilm XF 8-16mm F2.8 at CameraSize and more XF 16-80mm F4 and XF 16mm F2.8 Size Comparisons

Fujinon Size Comparisons

Camerasize just added the Fujinon XF 8-16mm F2.8 to their database. You can now compare it to all other Fujinon (and non) lenses.

I decided to compare it with the Fujinon XF 10-24mm F4.

I remind you that you can’t remove the lens hood on the XF 8-16mm F2.8, this is why you see it with lens hood at camerasize. And as FR-reader Panther says in the comments, “You don’t gain any size advantage by removing the lens hood, since the front elemt sticks out far anyway. It also helps protect the front element, so you can put it on a table front side down and the front element doesn’t touch the table.”

FR-reader Yoav (thanks), has continued to make several size comparisons of the new upcoming XF 16-80mm F4 and XF 16mm F2.8. I will share them all down below.

Fujinon XF 16-80mm F4 and XF 16mm F2.8 Vs. other Fujinon Lenses – SIZE COMPARISON [UPDATED]

XF 16-80mm F4 Vs. XF 10-24mm F4
XF 18-55 Vs. XF 16-80 Vs. XF 18-135
XF 35mmF2 Vs. XF 16mmF2.8 Vs. XF 16mmF1.4

Fujinon Size Comparison

Earlier today we shared the first real life images of the XF 16-80mm F4 and the XF 16mm F2.8.

As you know, I am right now travelling, but I stopped my car on the highway to make a quick size comparison of the XF 16-80 and 16/2.8 with some other Fujinon lenses like the XF35mmF2, based on technical sketches that Fujifilm showed us here.

UPDATE: FR-reader Yoav made one, probably more accurate (thanks) based on filter size. Thanks!!! :)

The XF 16-80 is seriously tempting me as terrific travel lens. But having already the XF 18-135 (and I am very satisfied with it), I will probably save my money for the 33/1 that is coming in 2020.

Either way… I am afraid that the new lens roadmap Fujifilm announced yesterday will seriously hurt my bank account again.

Photography is a pretty expensive hobby… but a very satisfying one :)

Fujfilm Announcement Coming Within 2 Weeks. Fujifilm X-T100, Instax SQ6… and Surprises?

Fujifilm Announcement Coming

On May 26, the Australian store CameraPro will offer a full day event packed with workshops, presentations and hands-on activities and more. If you want to join, check out their eventbrite page here.

In the event description they also write:

Bonus Sessions: A unique photo opportunity and an exclusive first touch and try of a yet to be announced Fuji release will be added in the coming weeks.

Thanks to Tony White from for sharing this tidbit with us :) .

So within May 26, we will get a new Fuji gear… but what?

Here on FujiRumors we have rumored the core specs of the Fujifilm X-T3, we talked a lot about the Fujifilm GFX 50R, we even looked far ahead to the Fujifilm GFX 100S, but the most rumored camera at the moment (and hence probably the closest to come) is the Fujifilm X-T100… so let’s talk about it :).

Fujifilm X-T100

We shared the first rumors about the Fujifilm X-T100 back in September 2017. Over the following weeks and months, FujiRumors has shared braking specs of Fujifilm X-T100.

Here are the main specs again for you guys:

  • design similar to X-T20
  • 24 Megapixel Bayer sensor
  • Selfie Screen
  • very affordable

The goal of the Fujifilm X-T100 is to close the gap between the EVF-less Fujifilm X-A5 and Fuji’s mid-range X-Trans cameras like the Fujifilm X-T20 and Fujifilm X-E3.

The direct competitors of the Fujifilm X-T100 are cameras like the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II and the Sony A6000.

Instax SQ6

Soon Fujifilm will also launch the Instax SQ6, which has already completely leaked here.

Here on FujiRumors we shared the first real life images already back in March 17, 2017 here, so well over a year ago.

The Instax SQ6 is basically the film-only version of the hybrid Instax Square SQ10 and it will take the Instax Square Film.


Of course there could be surprises. Maybe some lenses, such as the XF8-16mmF2.8? Or the XF200mmF2? For sure the X70 successor will NOT come in May.

I will work on it now and let you guys now if I can find out something. So make sure to follow us on Facebook, RSS-feed and Twitter.

Till then… you can dream freely in the comments :).

have a GREAT Day,

Fujinon XF 8-16mm F2.8 with New Improved Flare Control

Fujinon XF 8-16mm F2.8

According to a new source, the Fujinon XF 8-16mm F2.8 WR will have a new and improved flare control.

I guess it will probably use the same new “Anti-Reflection Coating” that we will find in the XF 200mm F2, and that will become standard in most of future Fujinon XF lenses.

We could see some mock-ups of the XF8-16 already in the past. I share them for you again here:

The Fujinon XF 8-16 is the most wanted Fujinon lens on FR-readers’ “To Do” list. And all we know officially from Fujifilm, is that it will be out this year.
