Dpreview posted some hands on photos will all the unreleased lenses in the roadmap… and some information:

XF 35mmF2: faster AF than the 35mmF1.4 – weather sealing not confirmed – available last quarter of 2015
XF 120mmF2.8: will have OIS – WR still unconfirmed –  focus limiter – available 2016… and I can’t see any tripod mount in the pictures
XF 16mmF1.4: coming soon – AF speed similar to 23mmF1.4
XF 100-400: not the final design

I repost also an updated version of the new roadmap. In the previous versions there was a bit of confusion, because Fujifilm ordered the lenses from left to right according to their focal length, and not their estimated release time… making the time indication much more vague. Well, now in this roadmap, you can see the lenses ordered more clearly, this means with the horizontal position showing the release time.

So we can see that:

XF 16mmF1.4 & XF 90mmF2 should come in the first half of 2015
– XF 35mmF2 somewhere around next fall (right in time for the X-PRO2??)
– XF 100-400 early 2016
– XF 120mmF2.8 1:1 Macro around spring 2016

FujifilmXworld published another teaser of the unreleased lenses. This time it’s about the big brother of the XF 60mmF2.4.

XF Lens has the half macro lens XF60mmF2.4 R and recently added macro extension tube in the lineup. And we will soon have the 1:1 Macro lens XF120mmF2.8 R Macro as the latest addition.
This lens will be like a big brother of XF60mm, and XF60mm has the highest resolution capability among any XF lenses, so you can expect a lot from this lens. Start counting days for the release in 2016.”

The Spanish site dslrmagazine (translation) had the opportunity to take some shots with the Fujifilm XM-FL Filter Lens Cap (officilly announced here, price around $90). It includes full size JPEGs.

Over at the Japanese site dc.watch you can find some more images of the new lenses. You want see nothing really new compared to the set of images shared yesterday. But it’s funny to see the big 16-55 mounted on the selfie X-A2… and the a cut of the 16-55 and 50-140.

There is also another high-res image of the upcoming lenses, spotted by FR-reader DIS. You can clearly see that the 90mmF2 is not marked as “Weather Resistant”, although Fuji Guy Greg said that it would be weather resistant. To know more about, check out this post.

[UDPATE] FIRST IMAGES of ALL the unreleased lenses in the roadmap… and shows a Weather Resitant XF 120mmF2.8… with OIS

 photo 120_zpsmiwaj6a0.jpg

So it begins… the non-stop CP+ news coverage here on Fujirumor. Stay tuned on FujiRumors via facebook, google+, RSS-feed and twitter to be always up to date with the latest news!

FujiXseriesJapan shared the first images of the 120mmF2.8 1:1 Macro (with OIS, focus-limiter and also WR!), XF 100-400,  XF 35mmF2, XF 16mmF1.4, XF 90mmF2 and 1.4 Teleconverter.

– XF 16mmF1.4 : WR & Clutch mechanism – filter 67mm
– XF 35mmF2 : WR – filter 43mm
– XF 90mmF2 : no WR (???) & no OIS  – filter 62mm [admin: Fuji Guy Greg said it will be weather sealed] – XF 120mmF2.8 macro : focus-limiter, WR & OIS (!!!) – filter 62mm
– XF 100-400 : can’t read any information
– teleconverter : shape is limitating for using with most X-lenses (not a surprise)

Ealier today I already shared some new pics of the 90mmF2 and 16mmF1.4 WR, along with a new (and better) lens roadmap. Check it out here.

Affinity Photo, the Photoshop Alternative? Test now the BETA version for FREE (Mac)!

It’s called Affinity Photo and its beta version has just been released (and you can test it for free, if you own a MAC!). The Promo Video at Vimeo looks definitely promising. Is this the real alternative to the Adobe’s Creative Cloud?

For now, the X-series RAF’s supported are (according to the Affinity Forum): Fuji X-Pro1, Fuji X-S1, Fuji X100, Fuji X100S, Fuji X10, Fuji X20, Fuji X-E1 and Fuji XF1

The question for Fuji X-shooters is: how does it handle the X-Trans files? So, if you own a Mac, just download it for free and let us know what you think about.

POSTED EARLIER TODAY: New Fuji roadmap, First image of the XF 35mmF2 WR lens, XF16mmF1.4 + 90mmF2 WR lens will be weather sealed too.

WORKSHOPS

Kashmir Workshop

Join Fujifilm X-Photographer Matt Brandon as he leads a small group of photographers through the narrow streets of ancient Srinagar, Kashmir, India on the Kashmir Valley Photo Trek and Workshop for 2015. Matt lived in Kashmir for 13 year with his family. Every summer for years, he lead treks and tours in the Valley of Kashmir so very few photographers know the area like he does. Join Matt for 12 days of photographic bliss: you will be staying on houseboats on the historic Dal Lake and will be treated like royalty. You’ll not only visit the bustling city of Srinagar: participants will also spend several night camping in the Indian Himalaya among nomadic shepherds. For more info on the trek itself check this post out. This really is a once-in-a-life-time opportunity. For more information and registration visit HERE.

Istanbul Workshop & more

Rico is also offering several workshops. The next ones will be Fuji X Secrets Weekend at the 30./31 May in Schwabach / Nürnberg (GER) and you can also participate at the Fuji X Secrets Istanbul Foto Workshop (from 30 April to 5 May) in the fascinating city of Istanbul.

Is Morgen Spurlock (director of “Super Size Me“) also an X-shooter? In the promo for his new show “Inside Man”, we can see him with an X-Pro1. However, as Andrew (who spotted it, thanks) said: “I wonder if a set designer just wanted a cool prop though.” Check out the promo image here.

ONLINE: New Fuji Lens Catalogue. Shows new XC OIS II lenses + Some details about upcoming XF lenses (with POLL)

 photo specs_zps070500eb.jpg

 

Fujifilm updated its lens catalogue (download here). It now includes the new XC 16-50 and 50-230 OIS II lenses and shows also the 16mmF1.4, 90mmF2 and 140-400mmF4-5.6 lenses.

Fuji has shown mock-ups of the 16, 90 and 140-400 in the past, and in this catalogue we can’t really see more specs about them than already known. You can get an idea of the size of these lenses compared to other Fujinons (size can change until their release, though).

FR-reader Jonavin made a list (published after the poll) with all his findings after looking at the catalogue. And I agree with Markus, who wrote an email saying: “Fuji is bringing all the right stuff. ” :-)

But tell us, of the three lenses, which is the one you are waiting for more than any other?

Between the Fujifilm X100F and X-E3, I would buy the...

XF 16mm f/1.4
– has push-pull clutch focus
– size looks to be around XF10-24 but not as “thick”
– filter size looks like 67mm?

XF 90mm f/2
– can’t tell if it has push-pull.
– size looks to be just under the size of the XF18-135; closer to XC50-230 OIS II
– filter size looks like 62mm

XF 140-400mm
– looks like f/4-5.6
– size, it’s as tall as the XF50-140 but a lot beefier/thicker; and no doubt heavier
– filter size?  probably 82mm [86 according to FR-reader The Green Balbo] – Nano GI coating

[UDPATE: MJr posted in the comments an image of the 16mm mock-ups at Photokina (shared on Fujirumors here) compared to other lenses.]

 

Fuji’s first half 2015 (rumored) X-gear roadmap: 2 new X-series cameras, 1 more lens and a new flash!

 photo rumorroadmap_zps7e662a5f.jpg

Do you remember 2013, when Fujifilm released the X100S, X20, X-M1, X-A1, X-E2, XQ1, XF 14mm, XF 55-200mm, XF 27mm, XF 23mm, XC 50-230mm and XC 16-50mm? Well, times seem to be over, when Fujifilm frantically released X-gear after X-gear in order to build up an entire system from zero.

Maybe in 2015 we won’t see such an avalanche of new products as in 2013… but it could nevertheless be very interesting year, especially because…

… because of the Fujiflm X-PRO2. All the eyes (especially mine ;-) ) are focused on it. However, I try to keep my radar finely tuned also on the rest of possible Fuji X-gear.

So I’ve summed up rumors shared here on Fujirumors, focusing, for now, on the first half of 2015.

I did NOT include the X-PRO2 in the first half of 2015 list because, at the moment, release dates are simply too contradictory. They go from early or first half 2015 to second quarter and even to fall 2015 (at least they all say 2015 :-) ). I’ll wait for trusted sources to find out the facts and will then post an update with the release date.

And of course, you can help my rumor sleuthing by sharing your knowledge. Just contact FR at fujirumor [at] gmail [dot] com (with fake email account, if you want), or 100% anonymously via rumor box (possibly with nick-name, so that I can eventually recognize you in future).

First half 2015 rumored X-gear

I think that CP+ this year (February 12 to 15) could be way more interesting than the CES. So what could come in these first 6 months? Here is the list:

2 new X-series cameras:

  • an entry-level camera: my personal guess, X-A1/X-M1 replacement/successor (trusted source – read rumor here)

  • a fixed lens camera (Anonymous Source – read rumor here). There were rumors in the past about an X70 (read rumor here), an entry level version of the X100 series with 23mm f/2.8 lens. It was definitely in Fuji’s plans in 2013, but such plans were dropped later on (information of trusted source). I have NOT heard of a comeback of the X70 until now, but it’s the only fixed lens camera I have heard about in the past. However, it could well be a completely new camera… if the anonymous source is right, of course.

2 new lenses:

First Look: Fujinon XF16-55mmF2.8 R LM WR

Istanbul Calling – XF16-55mmF2.8 R LM WR Sample Images

X-T1, XF50-140mmF2.8 R LM OIS WR, Lightroom

Hello again!

Yesterday, I brought you a comparison of the XF56mm lens and the new APD version. Today, Fujifilm officially announced its latest high-end general purpose zoom lens, the XF16-55mmF2.8 R LM WR, which is covering the popular 24-84mm full-frame equivalent.

This lens is quite substantial. It’s also fast, expensive and weather resistant, and it doesn’t feature any kind of optical image stabilization (OIS). So better use a tripod or shoot with faster shutter speeds.

X-T1, XF16-55mmF2.8 R LM WR, Lightroom

It’s no secret that the majority of Fujirumors readers voted for OIS in this lens, but it seems like Fuji is okay with selling it to the minority who’s happy without OIS. Or maybe we’ll see a “Mark II” version with built-in OIS in a year or two?

X-T1, XF16-55mmF2.8 R LM WR, Lightroom

It would have been possible to include OIS in this lens, but according to my Fuji sources, this would have resulted in an even larger, heavier and more expensive product. Alternatively, image quality would have suffered. So this lens appears to be a compromise of many things—except for image quality.

X-T1, XF16-55mmF2.8 R LM WR, Lightroom

The XF16-55mmF2.8 R LM WR is a well-built lens (anything else would be an insult) with snappy, silent autofocus. It also features Fuji’s new Nano-GI coating that was introduced in the XF50-140mmF2.8 R LM OIS WR. Excluding protection caps and the (plastic) lens hood, the zoom weighs 655 grams, which is still bearable. I recommend using an additional grip on your camera, though. For the X-T1, I prefer the vertical battery grip.

2014 is (almost) Over :: Time for the BIG RUMOR CHECK-UP and to dart a glance at what will come in 2015 (X-PRO2)!

 photo check_zps0160fc54.jpg

The year is over, so it’s high time to make a big summary of the rumors shared in 2014, but especially to see what will come in 2015.

NOTE about the 2014 rumor check-up. I have made 2 lists. A “fair list” and an “unfair list“. The fair lists consist in all the rumors shared by different sources at different times, each of them could have been right or wrong. On the other hand, in the unfair list I put everything into the same pot. So, for example, all the different rumors shared over several months by various sources about the X30, will result as just 1 correct rumor. It’s not fair towards the work of my sources, but I share it out of a pre-emptive self-defense from those who want to put every into the same pot.

And now let’s start:

THE 2015 PREVIEW

Here is the whole list of rumors, shared in 2014 and that might or might not become real in 2015:

HIGH RATING

X-PRO2 with APS-C sensor
No more X-PRO1S, all R&D placed into the X-PRO2
Fujifilm Flash will come in spring 2015, guide no. 50 and wireless control
– Another entry level X in early 2015!

MEDIUM RATING

XF 35mm MKII (As Fuji has first to complete its lens lineup, it could take a while before the 35 MKII hits the market… and Fuji can change plans in any moment regarding this lens.)  [UDPATE: A Fuji manager said in a dc.watch interview, that Fuji indeed planed a new version of the 35mm. A prototype with APD filter was tested. Apparently Fuji dropped plans for such a lens later on.] – Faster AF for the 35mm MKII (This rumor is separated from the first 35MKII rumor, as it comes from another source and was posted in another article)
35mm MKII announcement early 2015 [Could refer to the APD version (source – dc.watch interview). If I got it right, plans for such a lens were dropped. Let’s check it in early 2015] – X-PRO2 available in 2015
New Fuji flash with remote communication, HSS etc. available within late 2014 early 2015

LOW RATING

XF 16-55mm f/2.8 WR to be announced on January 6th
Fuji Flash made with METZ, ABC grouping, off shoe TTL
X-PRO2: available around “this time next year” with more than 16MP (the rumor was shared in late August 2014 by an anonymous source with nick name)
X-PRO2 with 24MP
X-PRO2 priced about 20% to 30% more expensive than the X-T1
X-PRO2 will feature a dual SD card slot.
Fujifilm will launch three non-interchangeable lens X-cameras within this winter… X100T, X30 and ? (winter 2014/2015)
– Sigma is looking at the X-system,
but they still have to decide which lenses produce and when to launch them (shared 1 DEZ 2014).
ORGANIC SENSOR problems to solve: too much battery drain and too much heat being generated
– Fujifilm to launch a new PRO-photographer service in 2015 like Nikon’s/Canon’s NPS/CPS!

WRONG RUMORS IN 2014

1. X-T1P release with 4K viewfinder in July
2. XF 18-135 announcement on Memorial Day. NOTE: I excluded the rumor of an 18-135 f/3.5-4.8, as this was a typo by Fujifilm at the CP+ (see this image), and I just reported about it.
3. XF 18-135 will come in May
3. XF 18-135 in stores in February
4. X-PRO2 with FF sensor (wrong, and corrected a few weeks later by the top trusted Japanese source)
5. X200 with 24MP, tilt screen, improved AF and wider detection area (NOTE: The 24MP, tilt screen and new lens rumor, shared 7 months before the X100T announcement, have been corrected later on by the tursted Japanese source and by a source who was right in the past). The rest has been corrected a few weeks before announcement by other sources.
6. Medium Format Fuji
7. XF 120-400 (rumor shared 8 months before it was shown at photokina… it turned out to be a 140-400… pretty close, but still wrong)
8. Sigma X-mount coming at photokina
9. X-T1 hardware improvement. A limited edition X-T1 will be available with it pre-installed but existing models could be upgraded with the money worth of new parts. (maybe the source confused it with the premium edition “graphite X-T1”)
10. B&H should receive first batch of Fujifilm X100T cameras on November 18 (wrong, shipping started on the 13th.)
11. X-E2 firmware won’t bring Classic Chrome film simulation
12. X-E1 firmware coming by the end of the year 2014 with Classic Chrome (the firmware came, but it didn’t include Classic Chrome)
13. XF 50-140 f/2.8 WR & 56mm APD shipped in December (50-140 started shipping late November in USA/EU and 56 APD in early December in EU)
14. New flashes for Fuji X are on the way, coming “later this year“, probably presented at photokina (WRONG: flashes are coming, but in Spring)

“Fujifilm won’t have a booth at CES 2015! My Guess? Big Announcements in Late 2015” (DPR-moderator Chris)

 photo asd_zps246a5358.jpg

If you are going to Las Vegas for the CES, you will probably waste your time looking for the Fujifilm booth, since, according to dpr-moderator Chris (f-sunny, via dpreview) – who’s heading to Las Vegas soon -, there won’t be any Fujifilm booth at CES… just rooms for business meetings.

Chris assumes there won’t be “big announcement, because they have no booth to show it/them off. My guess would be Fuji will save their announcements for shows late in 2015, and have a Fuji booth at those locations.”

If Chris is right, then this means that Fujifilm has not that much in the pipeline for the next couple of months (the 16-55mmF2.8, the 16mmF1.4 and a rumored entry level X, which should be also the last one, according to actioncamerarumors).

The Fujifilm X-PRO2? Oh yes, this one is coming too, sooner or later in 2015 ;) .
