COMING SOON: New Fujinon XC 15-45mm F3.5-5.6 OIS Pancake Power Zoom with Ø52 Filter Thread

New Fujinon XC15-45 Pancake Zoom

Hey guys,

Let’s start this week with a nice rumor, giving you all the core specs of Fujifilm’s rumored XC 15-45 lens… and here they are:

  • XC 15-45mm
  • Pancake Zoom
  • F 3.5 – 5.6
  • OIS (optical image stabilization)
  • Power Zoom
  • Filter Thread Ø52
  • Coming soon ;)

OIS: Yes, XC are slower that XF lenses, but also the little XC15-45 will have OIS, and given Fujifilm’s class leading optical image stabilization expertise, we can expect it to work fantastic also on this new pancake zoom, making the XC15-45 very usable also at slower shutter speeds.

FILTER THREAD: The filter thread –  Ø52 – is the same of the XF18mm and XF35mmF1.4.

POWER ZOOM: No manual/mechanical zoom on this lens. There will be a power zoom, meaning your will control electronically the zoom (remains to see if via button or ring, I don’t know this at this moment). We have to see how well this works in real life and how responsive and precise it is.

XC15-45 Vs. XC 16-50: The XC15-45 will have the same F stop and almost the same zoom range of the XC16-50mmF3.5-5.6, but will be significantly smaller. I can see XC16-50 sales drop considerably, after the announcement of the XC 15-45mm F3.5-5.6.

XC Lenses, any Good?

Fujinon XC lenses are optically wonderful lenses.

The only thing that differentiates them from XF lenses, is that XC lenses are slower and made more out of plastic, in order to contain production costs.

But in terms of image quality, theses XC lenses are terrific value for the money and fully honour their “Fujinon” family name :) .

Perfect Travel Companion for X-E3, X-A5, X-T100 & Co

If you remember, we had a discussion here on FujiRumors back in November 2017 about pancake lenses.

In fact, given the compact size of the X-E3, but also other Fujifilm cameras like the upcoming Fujifilm X-A5 and the Fujifilm X-T100, some of you thought that it might be time to expand Fuji’s pancake lens line-up, which currently consists only in the XF27mm and XF18mm.

Also back in November, I already gave you a little hint, by telling you how I would like to see something like the Panasonic 14-42mm OIS pancake, a lens I owned before I switched to Fujifilm many years ago.

Well, now the XC15-45 is coming, and I think that’s great news for all X shooters, who are looking for the ultimate compact and flexible travel lens.

So, I personally highly welcome the addition… and what about you? Let’s try to find it out with a quick poll.

And make sure to follow us on Facebook, RSS-feed and Twitter... because more rumors are coming :)

have a fantastic start in your week,

Are you Interested to Buy the XC15-45mmF3.5-5.6 OIS Power Zoom Pancake lens?

Pictures of Unreleased Fujifilm Camera Leaked

Pictures of and unreleased Fujifilm camera leaked online

  • FCCID: W2Z-02100005
  • FUJIFILM Corporation
  • Communication module: TYPE 1 FJ
  • Wireless standard: WLAN 802.11 b / g / n + Bluetooth

Nokishita believes that, due to the button arrangement, it could be the Fujifilm X-A5, a camera rumored here on FujiRumors.

As we reported here, there are totally 3 cameras registered by Fujifilm and that should come next (meaning 2018). One is the Fujifilm X-T2S IBIS camera, scheduled to hit the market in the first half of 2018. The Fujifilm X-A5 is also sure to come. There is one more camera left, and it should be either the Fujifilm X-T100 or the Fujifilm X80. But remember that Fujifilm is having issues with the X80 and the whole project has been delayed.

Fujifilm Registerd Another WiFi Camera (Now Totally 3)

Fujifilm registered another camera with bluetooth. This time the code name is FF170004 (WiFi only).

Just recently, they registered camera FF170003 here and other two cameras (FF170001 and FF170011) back in August.

The FF170001 was probably the Fujifilm X-E3, so we now have 3 registered Fujifilm cameras with bluetooth, that have not yet been announced.

  • FF170003 (WiFi + Bluetooth)
  • FF170004 (WiFi only)
  • FF170011 (WiFi + Bluetooth)

My guess is that it could be the Fujifilm X-A5, the X-T100 and the X-T2S. The X80 is also an option, but not sure if it will sport the X-TransIII sensor, as reported here.

Fujifilm Registered Another Camera with Bluetooth

Fujifilm registered another camera with bluetooth, with another code name compared to the 2 cameras registerd back in August (one of the 2 was the X-E3).

So there are still 2 more bluetooth registered cameras (at least) coming.

Which one? The full rumored camera list can be seen here (with last specs update). There are the X-T100, X80, X-T2S and X-A5.

The document can be seen here. The news was spotted by letsgodigital here… thanks to letsgodigital for contacting me.

Fujifilm X-Trans… Myths and Truth

Fujifilm X-Trans sensor is the evil, its design is seriously flawed and it causes all kinds of issues. That’s at least what every now and then pops up on the internet.

Since some of these “X-Trans sucks” comments and articles keep up appearing on the web and are sent to me via email, I decided to invest some hours of my already extremely limited spare time to address this here on FujiRumors and let you guys discuss about it in the comments.

Ok… let’s start!
