Chinese Fuji X Lenses

The latest entry is the Viltrox 85mmF1.8, which is, besides the Zeiss Touit Trinity, the only third party lens manufacturer to offer an autofocus lens for Fujifilm X. Fujirumors has still the worldwide only Viltrox 85/1.8 autofocus test and RAW samples to download.

Today it’s time for another Chinese Fujifilm X mount roundup.

Fujifilm Manager: GFX 100 Full Sensor PDAF, no Crop 4K@30p. Engineer who Developed Velvia Film now Develops Film Simualtions

Fujifilm GFX

Hugh Brownstone had a half an hour chat with Fujifilm manager Justin Stailey. It’s an interesting and relaxed talk at a glass of beer, I invite you to check out here.

For those in a hurry, here are some key points from what the Manager says:

Fujifilm GFX 100

  • 100 MP sensor
  • IBIS, because 100MP is sensible to vibration
  • 4K @ 30P with full sensor readout (no crop). No pixel binning. It’s gonna be compressed in some shape or form
  • price under/around $10,000
  • 100% phase detection coverage, but lenses with lots of glass are heavier to move, so it’s never going to have as fast AF as APS-C
  • coming first half 2019

Fujifilm Color Science

  • metric color is different from memory color. Velvia was designed to make things look the way your mind remembers it (memory color). It’s interpretation, it’s how your brain sees it versus what was really there
  • one of the long time Japanese engineers at Fujifilm responsible for Velvia film simulation development, did actually also develop Velvia film in the past

Mixed Talk

  • new age of mirrorless is starting, since more player are in the market. The acceptability of mirrorless has increased now. Fujifilm focuses on what they do best, APS-C for sport, action and video, and Medium Format for portrait and fashion
  • pixels on GFX 50R and GFX 50S are bigger than full frame. Bigger pixels capture more light
  • sensor, lenses, processor, color science, the whole package
  • he does not like that photokina will take place every year in spring, right after CP+. A 2 years circle was better and Fujifilm has organized their announcements also according to photokina
  • just because we announced X-T3, it does not mean that the X-T2 is worst now. Photographer makes more difference than the gear
  • some dealers in USA already make more than 50% revenue by selling mirrorless

Fujifilm X-T3: Steve Huff Loves It, Robert Hall Not So Much, X-T2 vs X-T3 Face/Eye AF Comparison and More

Hugh Brownstone – Fuji X-T3 Autofocus and James Bond: Focus Pulls and Eye AF WORK!

Fujifilm X-T3

The Fujifilm X-T3 is definitely a huge step up in terms of speed. Hence, one of the most tested aspects of this camera is its autofocus and eye AF performance.

In fact, even long time Fujfiilm critic Steve Huff now finally fell in love with Fujifilm thanks to the Fujifilm X-T3 (video below).

But not everybody has just postive things to say.

Robert Hall has a rather critical view on the Fujifilm X-T3. Actually on the entire Fujifilm system. He is annoyed that the Fujifilm X-T3 came out short after the Fujifilm X-H1, with all superior specs. But he is also annoyed that it has no IBIS. And he doesn’t like the fact that Fuji’s wide F1.4 and F1.2 lenses are not fast focussing like their slower Fujicron F2 lenses.

Neale James instead is about to switch from Canon to Fujifilm X-T3, and shows you how painful it can be to wait for the UPS guy to deliver your X-T3 ;).

It’s all down below… enjoy it guys :)

Fujifilm X-T3 Vs. X-T2 High ISO Jpeg Comparison, Canon and Nikon Take a Hit, X-Trans 3 Vs X-Trans 4 Pixel Comparison & More

Fujifilm X-T3 Roundup

If the Canon EOS R and Nikon Z series earned quite some flack on the internet, quite the opposite is true for the Fujifilm X-T3, and even guys, who used to cirtique Fujifilm quite hard and never recommended to buy Fujifilm like Gerald (link below), now say that with the X-T3 changed everything. He has one for testing, and is evidently blown away.

This camera has one equation that simply fits: it’s great value for money! So let’s check out the next bunch of X-T3 first looks.

We already shared a dedicated X-T3 eye/face detection article earlier today. Now let’s see what else we can learn about the Fujifilm X-T3.

X-T3 Review (Pixel Peeping Vs. X-T2 included)

Bjorn as published a 2 part review of the Fujifilm X-T3 (part 1part 2). The review also includes a high ISO comparison between the X-T2 and X-T3. JPEG only, since nobody supports the RAW files yet. So we are definitely far from being able to take any conclusions, but it’s interesting to see anyway.

Bjorn writes:

I must admit that I was expecting a larger difference between the two cameras when it comes to high ISO performance, especially since it is using the new Backside illuminated sensor (BSI). Realistically, there is about a one stop advantage for the X-T3 compared to the X-T2. I have no problem shooting at ISO 6400 and will bump it up to 12800 if needed. Compared to the X-T1 the difference is more pronounced and is closer to two stops better low light performance. For a cropped sensor camera, this is well within the ballpark.”

Fujifilm X-T100 Body Only Listed between $550 and $600 at Adorama

Fujifilm X-T100

The Fujifilm X-T100 will be announced in a few hours, and Adorama has already prepared its system to take pre-orders.

They didn’t upload the images or the full specs, but they have the various option listed and selectable (colors, body only or kit lens etc).

In fact, if you search for “Fujifilm X-T100” you get a total 7 results.

If you then select the price range between $500 – $750, you get 4 results.

  • Body Only listed between $550 to $600 (1 result)
  • Body + XC15-45 listed between $650 to $700 (3 results)

If these prices are confirmed, then I think the X-T100 is very well priced.

Consider that the X-T20 body only costs $899 (currently discounted to $799), while the Fujiflm X-A5 with XC 15-45 costs $600.
