How My Baby made me Forget My Gear, Changes in My Job and Talking FujiRumors

Fellow FR-readers,

at the risk of getting emotional, I owe you an update.

I told you a few days ago that I was about to become father. And I noticed that in the comments people rightfully asked if I am father now or not.

The answer is yes.

And faster than any Fujifilm camera can focus, my son became the biggest joy of my life.

It was like all those moments of happiness I missed in my life, that have been taken away from me or that I was not able to catch, all that happiness I’ve lost on my way until today, the universe did not throw that happiness away, but stored it somewhere in a secret place and decided to give it back to me all at once the moment my son was born.

Or to say it in an even more poetic way: it felt so good like Fujifilm would have released the X-H2 ;).

Sadly, though, during the birth and now also in his first days of life, my son has some struggles and he has to fight a little bit. But he is in excellent hands. They check him constantly, and always give him the treatments he needs. I am confident that in a few days, I will finally be able to bring them home.

Images of my baby?

Well, something strange happened.

We were at 4 hours after the birth, when my wife noticed I hadn’t taken a single image. She asked me if did not want to take pictures. That’s why I brought my gear with me, right? After she told me this, I took a few images, but then stopped immediately and told her “I just want to be in this moment now, I’ll take pictures tomorrow!”

This alone, shows the magnitude of the event… I forgot my gear! ;).

There is another big change: I don’t teach anymore!

No, I didn’t quit, but I took daddy-time off until the summer break (with part of my teacher salary still paid to me). My top priority now is my family. I keep my teaching job, still get some salary, but can be at home and take care of everybody.

And FujiRumors?

Well, I promise you that FR-readers will always be the first to know everything. Don’t worry about that. And you’ll still get your 1,000 free articles a year. What eventually will change, is that I won’t be able to reply to all 7,000 emails I get a year. I’ll try, but I can’t promise.

Certainly it helps that I have a few months off from teaching. This frees up much time, which will mostly be used for my family, but I will surely re-invest some of the added time also into FujiRumors.

So, that was it already.

I am totally happy.

I wish you all the best and see you soon again on FujiRumors :)

BREAKING: New Fujinon GF Zoom Lens Coming 2021 (Not Yet on Roadmap)

According to information I have received from trusted sources, Fujifilm will release a new GF zoom lens in 2021. The lens does not show up on any roadmap and has also not been hinted by Fujifilm in any shape or form.

In our big “What we Expect from Fujifilm in 2021” overview, we noticed that there is indeed one zoom lens, that once appeared on an internal roadmap (leaked by FujiRumors), but until now never saw the light of the day.

But at this point in time I do not know if it is that lens, or another zoom lens.

I am investigating and will let you know as soon as I can.

Fujinon XF27mmF2.8 R WR with Same Optics of Original XF27mmF2.8

On January 27 at the Fujifilm X Summit at 8AM New York time, Fujifilm will announce lots of stuff:

Today we have an update regarding the XF27mmF2.8 MK II.

We already told you that it will be weather sealed and have an aperture ring. Now we can add that it will share the same optics of the original XF27mmF2.8. And that’s perfectly fine. I own it, and I can tell you the image quality in terms of sharpness, fringing and chromatic aberration is really good. I frankly do not see any need to change the optics.

What We Expect to See from Fujifilm in 2021… and What Not!

What we Expect from Fujifilm

I thought I make a quick list of cameras and lenses that we could see in 2021, and what we surely will not get in 2021.

ATTENTION: It’s a mix of rumors, speculations and hopes. So read carefully to distinguish one from another.

2021 will be full of rumors, so make sure to follow FujiRumors on Facebook, Facebook, RSS-feed, Twitter, Youtube and Instagram.

Meet my New Fujinon XF Lens… and What You can Do to Convince my Wife it Was a Good Investment ;)

It was in my cart for a long time. And this time, I could not resist anymore.

I took advantage of the cashback deals expiring on January 17, and just grabbed it.

Which lens is it?

When I asked to drop the guess on Instagram here, many thought I already own the Fujinon XF27mmF2.8MKII or the Fujinon XF70-300mmF4-5.6.

But guys, that gear will be announcement on January 27. And I never get anything ahead from Fujifilm, nor any discount on gear. I pay my stuff full price just like any of you.

So, it has to be an “older” lens, and more precisely, the arguably sharpest Fujinon XF lens out there.
