Fujinon XF 33mm f1.0 and XF 16-80mm f4 Hands On Video

At Photoforum 2019 in Moscow, a Russian youtuber went hands on with the Fujinon XF 33mm f/1.0 R WR and XF 16-80mm f/4.

The youtuber had a chat with the Fuji rep, that the automatic google translation tool has a hard time to tranlsate, so if any Russian FR-reader has some spare time to do something good for the FR-community, feel free to drop your translation in the comments down below.

Until then, all I could get is that apparently the youtuber, after handling the XF33mm f/1.0, says:

  • it feels like around 800g weight“.
    Update with translation by FR reader
  • 33/1.0 dummy represents weight and size for now. Guess it will be pretty expensive. Awaiting next year
  • 16-80 will be affordable lens with extendable barrel (dummy shows folded state only). Also said that 16-80 will be lightweight lens for travellers and videographers

Of course the unit shown is just a dummy (the lens is on the roadmap for 2020), but dummies are usually accurate representations of the lens in terms of size, look and weight.

With that said, it’s still a long way, so there might be changes in size and weight until the final Fujinon XF33mm f/1.0 hits the market in 2020, and dummies we see later on this year might look different than the early ones we see now.

Regarding the Fujinon XF 16-80mm f/4, I remind you that Fujifilm said it will come this fall.

Check out the video above, which will skip the initial part of X-T30 and 16/2.8 introduction and jump straight to the XF33mmF1 and XF16-80mmF4.

Czech Store Lists Fujifilm Fujinon XF33mm f/1.0 for $3,100 and XF16-80mm f/4 for $1,100

Fujinon Roadmap Lenses

The Czech store Oehling has already added to their database the Fujinon XF33mm f/1.0 and the XF 16-80mm f/4.

It is not unusual that stores add upcoming lenses into their database. For example, the Dutch store Cameranu has both lenses listed since August 2018, hence just 1 month after Fujifilm added them to the official roadmap.

But where Cameranu just says “price not known yet”, the Czech store Oehling hazards a guess on the price:

  • Fujinon XF33mm f/1.0 = $3,100 (converted from czech crown)
  • Fujinon XF16-80mm f/4 = $1,100 (converted from czech crown)

But before you freak out and panic, I must tell you that, when stores don’t know the final price but want to place an item up already for people to see and get interest, they can add a random pricing to them.

We have covered such “price-holders” in the past here on FujiRumors, such as the Fujifilm X-M1 for $9,999. Although in today’s case it does look more like a “guessed” price than a completely random one, since both lenses have a very different price tag.

So let’s hope this Czech store will keep up making terribly wrong guesses, like they did with the brand new Fujinon XF16mm f/2.8, which in their not yet updated product page has a price tag of $887 (19,990 czech crown), when in truth it costs $399.

For us, this is a welcome opportunity to discuss if $3,000 would be an acceptable price tag for a radical fast autofocus lens like the Fujinon XF33mm f/1.0 and at which point you would call the price a deal breaker.

Fujifilm XF 16-80mmF4 and Fujinon GF 50mmF3.5 to be Released This Fall – First Specs Online and Additional Fuji GFX100 Images

Fujinon Lenses

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.

LEAKED: First Images of Fujifilm X-T30 Dark Gray and Hands On Images of XF 16mm F2.8, XF 16-80mm F4 and GF 50mm F3.5

Fujifilm X-T30 Leak

The Fujifilm X-T30, to be announced on February 14 along with the Fujinon XF16mm f/2.8, will come not only in the traditional black and silver, but also in a Fujifilm X-Pro2 graphite alike color. You can see the first images here on FujiRumors as well some images of the upcoming XF 16mm f/2.8, XF 16-80mm f/4 and GF 50mm f/3.5 shared by dpreview.

Personally I was never really a super fan of the Fujifilm X-T30 design, but I must say this new color raises its “sexiness” quite a bit.

There will be a huge live blogging on February 14 (bigger than you think ;) ), so stay tuned on FujiRumors and follow us on Facebook, Instagram, RSS-feed and Twitter.

Fuji Guy Billy: Fujinon XF 33mm f/1.0 Development Challenge, XF 16-80mm f/4 very silent AF, X-H1 Market Misunderstanding and More

Fuji Guy Billy Interview

Fuji Guy Billy joined the Fujilove podcast. For those of you, who are right now on the road or at work and you can’t listen to it all at iTunes, Stitcher or on fujilove, here are the key points:

Fujinon X Mount Lenses

Fujifilm X100, X-E3, X-T20 and X-T3

  • Fujifilm X100 was the game changer and started the X series success
  • When developing the X100, Fujifilm wondered who is going to buy a fixed lens camera at this price point, but it turned out to be a success
  • Fujifilm X-T3 is balance of size, weight and quality in a good price point, but for Billy even the X-T3 is big
  • Billy’s go-to camera is the Fujifilm X-E3, paired with XF35mmF2, XF23mmF2 and occasionally the XF50mmF2 because of portability
  • Fujifilm X-T20 with no joystick is a dealbreaker for him

Fujifilm X-H1

  • Fujifilm X-H1 latest firmware introduced lots of improvements and the new lower price makes it very tempting
  • The Fujifilm X-H1 maybe has been misunderstood by the market. It had a lot of new video features, so people considered it more a video camera. But it is also a better and more robust camera, and facilitates handling of bigger lenses. For Professionals weight is sometimes not a problem, but more durability. That’s why Fujifilm launched the Fujifilm X-H1. It should also appeal to DSLR customers, who were on the fence of switching to mirrorless. IBIS is quite nice also for photography, especially in low light
  • Shutter has an S1 (half press) and S2 (full contact to release shutter) position. Regarding the Fujifilm X-H1, you can contact your Fujifilm service and see if they have an option to adjust the S1 and S2 position to your taste (low, medium or high). There might be a charge for that service, depending on your country

IBIS

  • Fujifilm wanted to make an excellent IBIS system, and it is one of the best on the market. But the size of the system was too big to put it into other X-series cameras. At this moment, it can’t fit in other cameras, but hopefully one day IBIS can be designed smaller and make it fit on other cameras

Fujinon G Mount Lenses

  • Fujinon GF 50mm f/3.5 coming in 2019 and Fujinon GF 45-100mm f/4 in 2020
  • Fujinon GF 100-200mm f/5.6 R LM OIS WR: If you look to move into medium format, you don’t have many lenses initially to choose from, so zoom lenses can cover various focal lengths. The GF100-200 is compatible with teleconverter. It’s a little bit heavier, but very sharp. At that focal length with medium format sensor, you can isolate your subject very well

Fujinon XF16-80mm F4 will NOT Come in Early 2019

Fujinon XF16-80mm F4

I know that there are lots of FujiRumors readers out there, waiting for the Fujinon XF16-80mmF4, but, according to our sources, it won’t come in early 2019.

I personally hope it will be released at least at the end of June / early July, because I am sure this is a lens that many of us would like to use on our summer travels, but it could also be that we have to wait maybe until fall. I am investigating this and will let you know, so stay tuned on FujiRumors.

REAL LIFE SIZE COMPARISON: Fujinon XF16-80mm vs XF18-135mm and Fujinon XF16mmF2.8 vs XF35mmF2

These are the first real life comparisons between the Fujinon XF16-80mmF4 (mcok-up) and XF18-135mmF3-5-5.6 as well as the Fujinon XF16mmF2.8 (mcok-up) and XF 35mmF2.

These are nt final lenses, only mock-ups, so size might change until final release.

Unblike all the XF16-80 mock-ups we have seen previously, this one has no marked aperture ring.

Fujinon XF 16-80mmF4 vs XF 18-55mmF2.8-4 vs XF 16-55mmF2.8 – SIZE COMPARISON

Fujinon XF16-80mmF4 Vs Fujinon Zooms

After my recent Fujinon XF33mmF1.0 vs XF35mmF1.4 vs XF35mmF2 comparison, readers asked me if I can compare the size of the Fujinon XF 16-80mmF4 with the XF18-55mmF2.8-4 and XF16-55mmF2.8.

You ask, I deliver ;). And based on this comparison, the XF16-80mmF4 looks like a fantastic travel lens!

The comparison is based on the images I took and what I have seen with my own eyes at the Photokina Fujifilm booth. Also, we took the filter size into consideration.

Of course this can’t be super-accurate, but just like with my previous comparison, I’d say it’s 85+% close to perfection. Keep in mind, though, that the size of the XF16-80mmF4 mockup I have seen at photokina might change until the final lens is released sometimes in 2019.
