FUJIFILM at Imaging USA 2018. Expect to See Updated XF 8-16mmF2.8, XF 200mmF2 and GF250mmF4 Mock-Ups – UPDATE

Fujifilm at Imaging USA 2018

UPDATE: Sadly there are not upcoming lenses displayed at the imaging USA.

In the last few years, Fujifilm skipped the CES fair in Las Vegas.

They will, however, have a public booth (Nr. 717) at the Imaging USA 2018, which will be open to the public between January 14 and 16 in Nashville, TN.

That’s a bit too early to see the Fujifilm X-H1 (which will be announced February 15 Tokyo time), but there is a lot of great stuff to see, starting from the Fujifilm GFX 50S to the Fujifilm X-E3 as well as some brand new lenses like the XF80mm F2.8 WR.

I do expect that they will also display some updated mock-ups (or even early working prototypes) of the upcoming XF8-16mm, XF200mmF2 and GF250mm.

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

If there is any FujiRumors reader attending the event, please feel free to share what you see and heard with us via fujirumor@gmail.com.

It would be a very welcome help.

Fujifilm has just issued an official press release sharing their schedule for the Imaging USA 2018, which includes not only the latest and greatest Fujifilm gear, but also free head shot studio sessions, speeches and more.

Fujinon XF 8-16mmF2.8 Vs. XF 16mmF1.4 Size Comparison + GF 250mm Hands On Photos

Just yesterday here we shared a bunch of XF8-16 and GF250 prototype images.

Now also ephotozine uploaded their sample images of the prototypes, and they show the XF8-16 next to the XF 16mm.

Please note that the XF16mm has the rear cap mounted on it, whereas the XF8-16 has no rear cap, which makes the XF16mm a bit longer than it should be.

There are many more images to see at ephotozine here.

They also shared GF250mm hands on photos here.

Fujinon XF 8-16mm F2.8 (mounted on X-T2) and Fujinon GF 250mm F4 Hands On Photos

We already saw the first images of the XF8-16, GF250 and XF200 here, but now we can enjoy the XF 8-16 mounted on the Fujifilm X-T2 and the GF 250mm next to the Fujifilm GFX.

I will share just a few images, many more can be found at photographblog. So make sure to check out the XF 8-16 hands on photos here and GF 250 hands on photos here.

Note that, at least on this non-working XF 8-16 prototype, the lens hood is NOT removable.

XF 50mmF2 Lenstip Review: “Excellent Lens, Applause to Fuji” :: Palle Schultz GFX eXperience: “It will Help You to Do the Best You Can Be”

Fujifilm GFX

– The Fujifilm GFX is like your old SLR + example shots at Palle Schultz Youtube: “When you see the files that come out of it, there is really nothing to complain about. There is only one thing you can complaint about while using the GFX, and that is the photographer, because the GFX will show if the photographer is not good, but the GFX will help you to do the best that you can be. […] the files are so big, that you don’t want to fill up your hard disk too fast. So I slowed down, and I asked my models to slow down, and take fewer pictures, but better. With the GFX you concentrate more, and take that one picture that you want“. Check out also the AWESOME images at the end of the video (music in the background played by Palle Schultz himself)

– Potraits on FUJI GFX 50S, 120mm F4 Macro and 63mm F2.8 by Baljit Singh Deo at baldeo. Another set of stunning images.

Both, Palle Schultz and Baljit Singh Deo are members of our 10,200+ members strong Fujifilm GFX facebook group, share their work with the GFX 50s there and are always open to discuss it with the members. I really love to see how this group is growing together and how much enthusiasm there is for the GFX… and for photography in general.

We also offer a GFX tailored news/rumors stream at our Fujifilm GFX facebook page. You won’t miss a single GFX tidbit by following it.

Fujinon XF 50mm F2 WR

Lenstip just shared their Fujinon XF50mmF2 WR review, and it’s an extremely positive one.

Pros:

  • handy but solid and weather-sealed casing,
  • brilliant image quality in the frame centre,
  • good image quality on the edge of the frame,
  • negligible spherical aberration,
  • low lateral chromatic aberration,
  • sensible coma correction,
  • negligible astigmatism,
  • sensible performance against bright light,
  • silent, sensibly quick and accurate autofocus on the X-T2 body.

Cons:

  • some problems with the longitudinal chromatic aberration,
  • visible vignetting on RAW files.

Conclusion: “An excellent lens – those words would be enough. Still, to make our summary more eloquent we have to add that for a very decent price you get a lens sensationally sharp in the frame centre, small, lightweight, weather-sealed and produced in Japan. It didn’t avoid some flaws but they aren’t very important and don’t change our assessment in any way. A round of applause, Fuji!
