2019: The Year of Medium Format – Powerful Versatility, Leaving Canon FF for Fujifilm GFX and More

2019 – Medium Format Year

The crowd of photographer shooting digital medium format is growing, also thanks to the Fujifilm GFX system.

The lens system is growing, the camera line expanding and all what happened in the medium format world in 2019 can be checked out at BHphoto here.

As a recognition to that, DPReview declared the Fujifilm GFX100 “innovation of the year“.

Today we dedicate a roundup to the Fujifilm GFX system.

You’ll find people, who left Canon full frame for Fujifilm GFX100, reviews, images and more. Check it all out down below

Top Sellers 2019: Fujifilm X-H1 Glory, Viltrox Rise, Fujicron Love, Capture One Triumph and More

A long and exciting year is ending, and let’s see which one was the favorite gear of the FujiRumors community in 2019.

Keep in mind this are the last days, where you can save big on most of the gear listed below. So make sure to check out the massive official Fujifilm X and GFX deals (exp. Jan.5)


  1. Anker PowerCore+ 26800 PD

The Anker PowerCore+ 26800 PD are officially recommended by Fujifilm to charge your cameras, while in use or when switched off. All details here.


  1. Anker PowerCore+ 26800 PD
  2. Textured Rubber Grip Stickers Black
  3. Haoge LH-X13 Bayonet Square Metal Lens Hood for Fujifilm
  4. SanDisk 128GB Ultra Dual Drive USB Type-C – USB-C, USB 3.1

I bought the SanDisk 128GB dual USB-drive myself, as I own a MacBook Pro with USB-C only, but my school still uses computers with USB 3 and also on travels, when I need to print a flight ticket and ask the reception to do so, they usually do not have USB-C connection. This SanDisk 128GB dual USB-drive solved this problem, as it works with both, and is also extremely small.

It was the 4th best selling item this year, and I decided to add it in the list, to let you know that you currently save 62% on San Disk dual drive.

The textured rubber grip costs only $10 and you can see here how it improves the grip and also protects it.


  1. Fujifilm X-H1
  2. Fujifilm X-T3
  3. Fujifilm X-T30 (but X-Pro3 would have deserved it, as I explain below)

The terrific rebate on X-H1 pushed it on the top of the ranking for 2019. The Fujifilm X-H1 is discontinued, but you still can find last samples in some stores. Check stock at BHphoto, Adorama, AmazonUS, Focuscamera.

The Fujifilm X-T30 made it on the ranking, thanks to a huge deal on AmazonUS that was evidently an error, which Amazon decided to honour.

But if it wasn’t for the error X-T30 deal, the Fujifilm X-Pro3 would have taken that spot easily.


  1. Fujinon XF35mm f/2

Last year this category was won by Laowa 9mm F2.8 Zero-D, but this year Fujinon takes back the top spot, with the much loved Fujinon XF35mm f/2.


  1. Fujinon XF 35mm f/2
  2. Fujinon XF 50mm f/2
  3. Fujinon XF 16-80mm f/4

Small, affordable, great quality: that’s the winning formula of Fujicron line, which is an absolute favorite for you.

The Fujinon XF 16-80mm f/4 enjoys the advantage of being a brand new lens. Let’s see if it will be in the ranking also next year.


Huge interest also here on FujiRumors for the stellar Fujifilm GFX100.

Regarding lenses, GFX shooters went mostly either for super compact (GF50mm f/3.5) or super fast (GF110mm f/2)


  1. Viltrox 85mm f/1.8 autofocus lens
  2. Mitakon Speedmaster 35mm f/0.95
  3. Neewer 35mm F1.2

Given the success of the Viltrox 85mm f/1.8 autofocus lens, I am sure many of us can’t wait for the new Viltrox autofocus trinity to come early 2020.

  • read here – The Rise of Chinese Lenses and Top 7 Chinese Fujifilm X Mount Lenses

The Meike Neewer 35mm F1.2 was already very cheap, but thanks to a further price reduction, it is now that cheap, that even more decided to give it a try.


  1. Capture One 20
  2. Luminar 4
  3. Adobe Creative Cloud

If 2018 saw the rise of Capture One among Fujifilm shooters, 2019 saw the final and definitive triumph!

And after a summer passed on my mountains and editing images, the inevitable happened: also FujiRumors left Lightroom for Capture One!

Luminar 4 is on a worthy and respectable 2nd place, and it will be the next software, I will deeply look into. Will it be able to dethrone Capture One for my editing? Stay on FujiRumors, and I will let you know ;).

The Rumor Year 2019: The Right, the Wrong and the Still to Come!

The Rumor Year 2019

As you know, I am a teacher, and usually it’s me, who has to judge and give votes to others.

But not today, as it’s time for our yearly 2019 rumors check, and to see if I did my homework well or not.

Also, there will be an accuracy rating of those rumors, that still could not be verified.

Keep in mind, there could be further rumors before the end of the year, in which case I will update this list!

Ready? Cool, so let’s start,

But be warned: I will be incredible severe to myself, as I will include in the wrong rumor section, rumors that were actually correct at the time of sharing, but just turned out wrong because Fujifilm changed plans.

It’s the case for example of the new lens roadmaps. In fact, just a few days after our rumor, top Fujifilm manager confirmed here, that indeed there would have been new roadmaps in 2019, but 2019 is now ending, and nothing came. So I was wrong, but so was the top Fujifilm manager.

  • 52 rumors shared
  • 14 rumors still to be verified
  • 34 correct rumors out of 38 verifiable rumors
  • 4 wrong rumors out of 38 verifiable rumors

Unbeatable: Fujifilm X-T3 remains Best Camera You can Buy for under $1,500 also in 2019

2019 was another exciting year for the camera industry, with lots of different cameras in all price ranges hitting the market.

So DPReview had to update its buying guide for cameras under $1,500, and guess what, not a single camera could dethrone the 2018 Fujifilm X-T3 from the top spot.

DPR writes it’s still the best camera you can buy for under $1,500:

the Fujifilm X-T3 is one of the best APS-C cameras ever made and one of the most adept cameras full-stop, if you want to shoot both stills and video.

Its image quality is excellent, with a choice of attractive ‘Film Simulation’ color modes and detailed, flexible Raw files. Autofocus with most X-series lenses is snappy with effective focus tracking, eye-detection AF for portraits and zone focus modes that will adapt to a range of sports. This is on top of a well-respected interface which blends traditional dials with a good degree of customization.

We’re particularly impressed that the X-T3 does all this while also offering some of the best video we’ve encountered. It can shoot highly detailed 4K footage (UHD or DCI) at up to 60p with the option for 10-bit capture for maximum grading leeway. Useable (though not flawless) video AF makes it comparatively easy to get good results, too. Only the lack of in-body stabilization counts against its go-everywhere, capture everything credentials.

The Fujifilm lens range isn’t as extensive as some systems, but there’s a good choice of sensibly priced lenses that go well with the X-T3.

And it’s not over yet, as the Fujifilm X-T3 will get surely one significant firmware upgrade, and maybe even another big one in future.

You can see the entire buying guide at DPR here.

Top Fujifilm Gear 2019

Another Fujifilm year is ending.

With 4 cameras and 4 lenses released in 2019, Fujifilm has a little bit slowed down, if we compare it to the Fujifilm year 2018 (7 new cameras and 6 lenses) and to the Fuji year 2017 (4 cameras and 8 lenses).

But it was definitely quality over quantity.

And then there were these lenses:

DPReviewTV already made their best of 2019 gear list here.

But these days many others make their own lists, too, such as Philip Bloom, Tony Northrup and more.

SPOILER: Fujifilm GFX100 grabs quite some attention, Fujifilm X-T30 wins too, and the Fujifilm X-Pro3 is wtf camera of the year.

DPReview TV Best and Worst of 2019: Sony and Fujifilm Battle for Best Camera of 2019 and Kaizen Crown Goes to Canon

DPReview just published their best and worst of 2019.

Here is their ranking:


There was a disagreement here, as just when Chris declared the Sony A7rIV best of 2019, you hear Jordan out of the frame saying “GFX !!!”

  • Sony A7rIV – it can not reach the GFX100 image quality
  • Fujifilm GFX100 – the best image quality they have ever tested, great AF, IBIS, excellent video features
  • Leica Q2

In my opinion, the Fujifilm GFX100 pushed the boundaries in its class (MF) much more than the Sony A7rIV did in its class (FF), and therefore the Fujifilm GFX100 deserves to be called camera of the year.



  1. Tamron 35mm f/1.4
  2. Panasonic 10-25mm f/1.7
  3. Fujifilm XF200mm f/2 [announced in 2018, but they only tested in 2019]


  1. Canon EOS R
  2. Panasonic G9
  3. Olympus EM-1 MK II


  1. Lensbaby Omni
  2. Nikkor Noct – mega expensive


  • Canon SL3
  • Sigma FP – does not have a shutter. For stills you get rolling shutter, banding etc. It’s a great video camera, but not good for stills
  • Panasonic G95
