The FujiRumors CP+ 2019 live coverage continues, and this time I have found the answer to the question, when the Fujinon XF16-80mm f/4 and GF 50mm f/3.5 will be released at the Japanese site capa.getnavi here:
XF 16-80mmF4 – to be released in fall 2019
GF 50mmF3.5 – to be released in fall 2019
Those perfect travel lenses come to late for our summer trips. Digested this bad news? Then let’s move on!
The Japanese site also shared Fujifilm GFX100 images and media slides (in Japanese), but don’t worry, FujiRumors has already leaked them all (and even more in detail) a few weeks ago in this article.
I did translate all the Japanese slides, and there is nothing that we do not know already about the Fujifilm GFX100.. For additional GFX 100 images you can also check out the Polish site optyczne.
What I will translate for you, though, are the media slides of the lenses.
“Our first impressions are more than good! This lens is relatively light, handy and the optical quality after our first tests is at the rendezvous. In addition the GF100-200mm is stabilized which is very valuable when we have the tremblotte like me
The Fujinon GF100-200mm F5.6 LM OIS WR should arrive in the course of the first quarter of 2019 if our information is correct“
If you are in PCHstore area, make sure to run there, since they write that “for those who would like to see it; the GF100-200mm will be visible until tomorrow 12H!”
Back in September, Fujifilm announced the new Fujinon GF lens roadmap, which included the GF100-200mmF5.6 R LM OIS WR, GF50mmF3.5 R LM WR and GF45-100mmF4 R LM OIS WR.
Fujifilm has recently announced a new GF lens mount roadmap. The official roadmap, though, didn’t gave any timeline about when the future GF50mmF3.5 pancake, GF100-200mmF5.6 and GF45-100mmF4 will hit the market.
Now the Japanese site dc.watch has shared a couple of media slides, including one that shows the roadmap for the various lenses. We can see:
2019 – GF100-200mmF5.6 R LM OIS WR
– GF50mmF3.5 R LM WR
2020 – GF45-100mmF4 R LM OIS WR
As we told you back in December 2017, Fujifilm plans to release 2/3 lenses for each of their systems (X and GFX) a year. This means that we might see one more lens coming n 2019 for the GFX 50S as well as 1 or 2 more lenses in 2020. Check out our big rumor timeline to see what could come.
The slides also give us some basic details about these lenses, which I have all listed at the bottom of this article.
Other media slides (also below) show some more details the Fujifilm GFX 100. So we discover that (unsurprisingly) it will feature the X Processor 4 and we can see a first crop made out an image taken with the GFX 100.
Don’t worry, of course I did google translate the Japanese description of the slides for your guys. Here on FujiRumors we like to treat you well and save your time ;).
One thing I liked form the Fujifilm GFX 50R and GFX 100 live stream announcement, is that Fujifilm asked what full frame means.
“Full” indicates that some kind of limit is reached. So what is the Fujifilm GFX system? Well, then Fuji calls it a “super full frame” ;)
And just for fun I will tell you this: in German we often refer to “full frame” as “Kleinbild“, which means “small frame“, because it’s smaller than… guess what?… you got it, medium format!
So what now, is full frame actually a small frame?
In order to end the confusion, I will tell you this: every system is “full frame”. Fuji’s APS-C system is conceived and designed for APS-C, and so is their MF system. M43 is build around the M43 sensor and so forth.
Whatever you hold in your hands right now, from an iPhone to Phase One, it’s “full frame”.
