There is one rumored lens, that makes many X-shooter dream: the super-fast XF33mmF1.0.
The first rumor about this lens has been shared back in April 2015 here. Since then I’ve worked with my sources, trying to confirm it… and chances are actually very high to see it become real one day. A trusted source told us in October 2015 here, that the decision at Fuji’s Headquarter is fallen: Fujifilm will make it (if Fuji doesn’t change plans again).
But, of course, a lot of time will pass between a decision at Managment Level and the release of a new product.
And here is an update:
mikemander (who tested a prototype X-Pro2) published a picture that shows a 33mm frameline preview on the pre-production X-Pro2. Could that be the 33mmF1?
stay tuned on FujiRumors… who knows if FR-sources can give me an update on this soon… and if they do, you’ll read it immediatly here on FujiRumors ;)
P.S.: thanks to the FXF community and the FR-readers, who told me about it at our Forum and via email
