Fujinon XF 50mm f/1.0 to Weigh About 845g and Faster Autofocus than XF56mmF1.2

Ok guys, here is another bit of information I have just received and I am happy to share with all of you:

The Fujinon XF50mm f/1.0 will:

  • weigh about 845g (the Fujinon XF56mmF1.2 weights half of that)
  • have faster autofocus than XF56mmF1.2

Guys, if you want a fast lens with huge glass elements and at the same time fast autofocus thanks to powerful AF motors, then it’s clear that the lens won’t be the lightest around. At least not until Fujifilm can break the law of physics and revolutionize lens design.

Is This Kid Teaching you How to Clean Your Fujifilm Gear, or Her Daddy Looking for Excuses to Buy the Upcoming XF 50mm F1.0? ;)

Here is a little weekend curiosity!

Fellow Fujifilm X-T group member Marrku has shared this video post on the group, where you can see Fuji’s youngest engineer showing you how to clean your Fujifilm gear. In this case I think we have a Fujifilm X-T10 and the Fujinon XF56mmF1.2.

Or wait, maybe it’s a strategy of her daddy. I mean, what better excuse to buy the upcoming Fujinon XF50mm F1.0, then going home and explain to his better half, that the kid destroyed the XF56mmF1.2? ;)

To me, this looks also like a very efficient method to rapidly cool down those Canon EOS R5/6 cameras ;).

Fujinon XF30mmF1.0, XF35mmF1.0 and XF33mmF1.0 Patents Spotted and Fujinon XF 50mmF1.0 Coming Soon

Finally, 5+ years after our original Fujinon XF33mmF1.0 rumor, the patent for that lens has now been spotted by hi-lows-note.blog (via j-platpat.inpit.go.jp).

And not only that!

It looks like Fujifilm looked into slightly different variations of that super-fast lens, more precisely:

XF35mmF1.0
Focal length: 34.686 mm
F number: 1.03
Angle of view: 45.4

XF30mmF1.0
Focal length: 30.369 mm
F number: 1.03
Angle of view: 51.0

XF33mmF1.0
Focal length: 33.489 mm
F number: 1.03
Angle of view: 46.8

As you know, back in 2018 Fujifilm officially added the Fujinon XF33mmF1.0 to the lens roadmap, but later on in 2019, Fujifilm officially canceled plans for the Fujinon XF33mmF1.0 in favor of the Fujinon XF50mmF1.0 for the reasons we already elaborated in this article.

As we could see in a live stream youtube video we reported about here, the Fujinon XF50mmF1.0 is out for Beta testing, meaning Fujifilm will be able to respect the original timeline, hence be able to release this lens within 2020.

From the first sample visible during the live stream, I can confidently say that an impressive lens is coming our way.

If it was really more needed than a Fujinon XF33mmF1.0, given the fact that we already have (and I personally own), the stunning Fujinon XF56mmF1.2, that’s up to you to decide.

For sure, the Fujinon XF50mmF1.0 will incorporate the smoothest and best autofocus, it will be weather sealed, hence addressing two of the major complaints with the XF56mmF1.2.

Plus, the XF50mmF1.0 will be priced surprisingly well, and this is why I believe, that Fujifilm is about to drop a real winner.

LIVE NOW: Fujinon XF50mmF1.0 Beta Tester Shows First Sample Images

UPDATE: the video live stream has been interrupted

Youtuber John Branch has a live stream now, where he said the images were taken with a lens he can’t talk about. The samples look stunningly creamy and have all the pop you can desire ;).

Turns out that, when he scrolled over his images, the metadata shows “Fujinon XF50mmF1.0 R WR”.

Looks like the beta testing phase has started. And no wonder, as Fujifilm promised this lens to come within 2020.

FujiRumors has already leaked the estimated price, which you can find here.

Fujifilm UK offers Free 48 Hours Loan on Fujifilm X/GFX Gear (Including GFX100)… and Which Gear FujiRumors Would Rent ;)

Fujifilm X shooters living in UK are definitely lucky.

Not only they get the fastest repairs (as the EU service center is located in UK) and can visit the Fujifilm House of Photography (a worldwide Fujifilm-unique store, where you can already admire the Fujinon XF50mm f/1.0), but since this year, they also offer totally free 48 loans on basically all X and GFX gear (including GFX100).

You can access all details at fujifilm-connect.hireacamera.

I hope this is something that will get extended to other countries too.

What would I rent?

Well, for sure a Fujifilm X-Pro3, and just pass 2 days photographing with it and see how it feels to shoot with the hidden LCD screen, and without a doubt also the Fujifilm GFX100… you know, just to hide in some corner at home and pass a few hours pixel peeping and cropping like crazy ;).

In terms of lenses, I’d surely rent the XF100-400, which is something I am lusting after for some wildlife shots in my mountains and then the GF23mmF4, because, you know, with that GFX100 all you need is a wide angle lens and then you can just crop endlessly into the image.

And which Fuji gear would you like to rent?
