FujiRumors has shared 2 days ago an image of all these three lenses side by side. The XF33mmF1.0 has pretty much the size of the XF16-55mmF2.8.

Fujinon Roadmap Lenses

For the second time today (first time here), I had to find a way through the security check and get into the Photokina halls. Stealthy like a ninja, I made it again.

This time I was armed with my wonderful Fujifilm X-E3 and I snapped some pictures of the upcoming Fujinon lenses.

I apologize for the quality, since I tried to make my way through a couple of Fujifilm managers and an angry lady, who told me “can I help you” in a tone that clearly ment “p*** off from here“.

So time was limited, the conditions difficult, I could not touch the lenses, but I made it… somehow.

And when nobody was watching, I quickly grabbed a Fujifilm GFX 50R and made a super quick hands on video.

Back to the lenses:

  • XF33mmF1.0: Yes, it’s rather big, especially compared to the Mitakon 35mm F0.95 (manual focus only). I guess Fujifilm wants to make this the ultimate lens in terms of image quality, and still offer a fast AF motor. Filter size 77
  • XF16mmF2.8: Very small. Fits perfect in the Fujicron lineup with the XF23mmF2, XF35mmF2 and XF50mmF2. Filter size 49
  • XF16-80mmF4: This lens, my friends, will fall into the hands of many fellow X-shooters for travels. Filter size 72

PhotoKina 2018: The Year DSLRs Died. What to Expect from Fujifilm and will FujiRumors be There?

images I took at photokina 2016… can you find Waldo

The Year of Mirrorless

This years’ photokina will probably the most exciting of the last 20 years.

We will assist to the death of DSLR’s (that’s it my friends, just accept it), and open the new era of mirrorless.

Paraphrasing the famous sentence from the movie Deadline we could say “that’s technology, baby, there is nothing you can do about it, nothing“.

Sure, the transition from DSLR to mirrorless won’t happen overnight. But that’s the trend. And that’s why Canon and Nikon are starting to get serious about mirrorless, too.

On this years photokina we will see the following new mirrorless cameras from Fujifilm:

Not a rumor, but regarding Fujifilm lenses, I’d not be surprised to see:

  • Fujinon GF 100-200mm F4.5-5.6
  • Fujinon GF 35mm F2.8
  • Fujinon GF 20-36mm F3.5-4.5
  • GF pancake lens is not confirmed
  • and of course the XF200mmF2 and XF8-16mmF2.8

Mock-ups:

  • Fujinon XF16-80mmF4
  • Fujinon XF16mmF2.8
  • Fujinon XF33mmF1.0 (not sure)

FujiRumors @ Photokina

I am 80% sure I will be there, but if I go, I sadly I can’t be there for more than 1 or (best case) 2 days.

I was at photokina in 2016, also just for one 1 day, because my school principal didn’t give me more days off (and yet, when I came back, I had huge problems to focus on my job again).

In 2016, the by far busiest booth was the one of Fujifilm, but, between me and you, the most beautiful one was without a doubt the one of Leica (don’t tell Fuji, but I’ve spend hours (!!!) there).

This year, Fujifilm won’t have such an easy game to play like in 2016. The competition is strong, and that’s good for us customers.

The biggest problem?

Well, on the same Photokina days, there is also worlds largest beer festival, the Oktoberfest in Munich (I’ve never been there). So I stand in front of tough decisions: Oktoberfest or Photokina? Life can be so cruel!!!

Let me know in the poll, where I should go ;)

FujiRumors Should...

Fujifilm in Times of Mirrorless Wars

With all the buzz around this new mirrorless war, and the tons of comments here on FujiRumors, I felt the need to launch one article to rule them all.

Hence, this will be the one article, where you can let your thoughts soar free, talk about the mirrorless war, vote polls, share thoughts and ideas.

Let it all out… we need that sometimes.

Let’s start:

BREAKING: Fujifilm X-T3 Shipping Late September

Photo by insung yoon – original (X-T2) image here

Fujifilm X-T3 Shipping

The Fujifilm X-T3 will ship in late September.

Beyond the X-T3 Specs

So far the rumored Fuji X-T3 specs (full list below) looks very interesting.

But one thing are the specs on paper, another thing is how the camera performs in real life, and that’s what Fujifilm X Shooters care more than anything else.

We will discover everything about the Fujifilm X-T3 in our Live Blogging, which could come surprising, like the XF 8-16 and XF 200 announcement.

  • allowing Push Notifications on your desktop browser (click on the bell icon on the bottom right of your browser

All I can promise to you, is that FujiRumors will start live blogging 0,0001 seconds after the Fujifilm X-T3 announcement ;) .

BREAKING: Fujifilm X-T3 Will Cost Less than Fujifilm X-T2 (less than $1,599) – TRUSTED SOURCE

Fujifilm X-T3 – The Affordable Flagship

Busy news days! Here a few of the articles published in the last 36 hours on FR:

  • Read here – R&D Investment for Fujifilm X-T3, GFX 50R and GFX 100S Stops Operating Income Grow
  • Read here – Nikon FF Mirrorless Vs. Fujifilm GFX 50S Size Comparison
  • Read hereFujinon XF 33mmF1.0: Why We Should Buy it and How YOU Helped Fujifilm Japan

  • Read here – Shoten/Techart Canon EF to Fuji GFX AF Firmware Update Released
  • Read here – Fuji Guys Fujifilm XF10 Top Features
  • Read here – Lensbaby Sol 45 f/3.5 Tilt-Shift Lens for Fujifilm X Cameras

A powerful new sensor, a fast processor, 20fps bursts, packed with many new features, the best Fujifilm X series camera ever made… and yet, the Fujifilm X-T3 won’t be that pricy as one could imagine.

In fact, I have been told by a trusted source (thanks), that the Fujifilm X-T3 will cost less than the Fujifilm X-T2 at it’s current official price tag (without rebates), hence less than $1,599.

$1,499? $1,399? Or even less, maybe $1,299 like the X-T1 launch price? Now that thing starts to be affordable also for my savings account :).

But one thing is sure: competition is a good thing for us customers, since I doubt Fujifilm would have sold the Fujifilm X-T3 for a lower price than X-T2, if the Full Frame Sony A7III would not have hit the market with a $2,000 price tag.

And if the rumor of the X-T3 stacked sensor is true, then the Fujifilm X-T3 is basically a Sony A9 for about 1/3 of the price.

You better hold on tight guys, because a whirlwind of rumors is waiting for you here on FR. Don’t miss it and join us on Facebook, RSS-feed, Instagram and Twitter.

Rumored Fujifilm X-T3 Specs

NIKON Mirrorless Camera is Coming, and FUJIFILM is Happy About it

NIKON MIRRORLESS IS COMING…

So yes, they are finally doing it.

Nikon is coming with a serious mirrorless (FF… or even MF?) camera on August 23. And Canon will follow soon.

Unlike other occasions, where Nikon marketing terribly failed, this time I find the whole thing with the teasers a brilliant move. The only risk I see is that the final thing won’t match the high expectations, like when Nikon made all these Nikon DF teasers (and Kai made a funny parody of them).

Anyway, Nikon is confident, and promises “a leap into a new dimension that will last for the next 100 years“.

We know very little about the upcoming Nikon mirrorless camera. So let’s wait until August 23 before we discuss the camera more in-depth.

But what we can discuss now, is what Nikon’s and Canon’s move into the mirrorless world means for Fujifilm X and GFX lovers.

… FUJIFILM IS HAPPY…

Fujifilm managers said here that they welcome CaNikon Full Frame mirrorless cameras, because…

“[…] having those strong brands in the mirrorless marketplace increases general awareness of mirrorless, and that’s a good thing for the whole industry.”

Many people, who currently still think that DSLRs are the only real professional tool, might start to think differently, once they see that even Canon and Nikon start to cannibalize their own high-end DSLR market in favor of their new mirrorless offering.

And this is where Fujifilm (and other mirrorless manufacturers) have their opportunity.

If the message finally passes that “mirrorless is the future” (and it is the future), plenty of DSLR users (who are mainly APS-C shooters, as Fuji Guy Billy correctly said in his X-T100 first look here) will start to migrate to Mirrorless.

Maybe many will just go to CaNikon mirrorless, but at least Fujifilm has the chance to finally attract some of those mirroless-migrants to their X or GFX systems by offering already today:

  • 28 APS-C Fujinon lenses
  • 2 APS-C MK video lenses
  • 3 APS-C flagships (X-T, X-Pro and X-H line)
  • Plenty of APS-C mid range and entry-level cameras
  • 2 Medium Format Cameras (GFX 50s and very soon an affordable GFX 50R)
  • 6 Medium Format Lenses (more to be announced soon)

It remains to see if the mirrorless-migrants will be patient and wait years for Canon and Nikon to build up a complete new system, or if, since they have to change system and change lenses anyway (unless they use adapters), they will directly switch to more established and experienced mirrorless brands like Fujifilm (APS-C or MF) or Sony (FF),

… AND X/GFX SHOOTERS ARE HAPPY TOO!

What would Fujifilm be today, without the pressure they got from Sony, Panasonic and Olympus? Probably a much worst system than it is today. So, competition is a good thing.

That’s why I hope that the Nikon mirrorless camera will be a top performing camera and very rich in features, a real flagship!

It will motivate Fujifilm (and other companies) to work even harder and to invest even more money into their camera system, and hence improve and expand the Fujifilm system even faster.

So thank you Nikon… thank you Canon… for finally joining seriously the mirrorless side of life… just please, let it be awesome mirrorless cameras ;) .
