Fujinon GF Lens Roadmap Timeline 2019/2020 and More Fujifilm GFX 100 Details with Image Sample Super Crop

Fujifilm GFX System

Fujifilm has recently announced a new GF lens mount roadmap. The official roadmap, though, didn’t gave any timeline about when the future GF50mmF3.5 pancake, GF100-200mmF5.6 and GF45-100mmF4 will hit the market.

Now the Japanese site dc.watch has shared a couple of media slides, including one that shows the roadmap for the various lenses. We can see:

  • 2019
    – GF100-200mmF5.6 R LM OIS WR
    – GF50mmF3.5 R LM WR
  • 2020
     – GF45-100mmF4 R LM OIS WR

As we told you back in December 2017, Fujifilm plans to release 2/3 lenses for each of their systems (X and GFX) a year. This means that we might see one more lens coming n 2019 for the GFX 50S as well as 1 or 2 more lenses in 2020. Check out our big rumor timeline to see what could come.

The slides also give us some basic details about these lenses, which I have all listed at the bottom of this article.

Other media slides (also below) show some more details the Fujifilm GFX 100. So we discover that (unsurprisingly) it will feature the X Processor 4 and we can see a first crop made out an image taken with the GFX 100.

Don’t worry, of course I did google translate the Japanese description of the slides for your guys. Here on FujiRumors we like to treat you well and save your time ;).

Fujifilm Manager: GFX 100 Full Sensor PDAF, no Crop 4K@30p. Engineer who Developed Velvia Film now Develops Film Simualtions

Fujifilm GFX

Hugh Brownstone had a half an hour chat with Fujifilm manager Justin Stailey. It’s an interesting and relaxed talk at a glass of beer, I invite you to check out here.

For those in a hurry, here are some key points from what the Manager says:

Fujifilm GFX 100

  • 100 MP sensor
  • IBIS, because 100MP is sensible to vibration
  • 4K @ 30P with full sensor readout (no crop). No pixel binning. It’s gonna be compressed in some shape or form
  • price under/around $10,000
  • 100% phase detection coverage, but lenses with lots of glass are heavier to move, so it’s never going to have as fast AF as APS-C
  • coming first half 2019

Fujifilm Color Science

  • metric color is different from memory color. Velvia was designed to make things look the way your mind remembers it (memory color). It’s interpretation, it’s how your brain sees it versus what was really there
  • one of the long time Japanese engineers at Fujifilm responsible for Velvia film simulation development, did actually also develop Velvia film in the past

Mixed Talk

  • new age of mirrorless is starting, since more player are in the market. The acceptability of mirrorless has increased now. Fujifilm focuses on what they do best, APS-C for sport, action and video, and Medium Format for portrait and fashion
  • pixels on GFX 50R and GFX 50S are bigger than full frame. Bigger pixels capture more light
  • sensor, lenses, processor, color science, the whole package
  • he does not like that photokina will take place every year in spring, right after CP+. A 2 years circle was better and Fujifilm has organized their announcements also according to photokina
  • just because we announced X-T3, it does not mean that the X-T2 is worst now. Photographer makes more difference than the gear
  • some dealers in USA already make more than 50% revenue by selling mirrorless

Fujifilm GFX 50R: The Everyday Medium Format gets First Looks, Autofocus Tests and Size Comparisons

Fujifilm GFX 50R

I just came home from another busy day at Photokina, and I played again around with the Fujifilm GFX 50R. It’s a really fine camera, and my GAS goes strong, but $4,500 still make it out of my reach. So my money is safe (I think :) ).

For rangefinder guys like me, the Fujifilm GFX 50R is surely more fun to use than the GFX 50S, also on the streets and for daily documentation of life.

Kevin Mullins and Jonas Rask also said on their live talks at Photokina, that the Fujifilm GFX 50R is a medium format they enjoy to pick up and carry around for daily shooting, much more than a bulkier Fujifilm GFX 50S, which is definitely a wonderful tool for professional work, but not as “casual” as the Fujifilm GFX 50R.

So keep in mind that performance is just the same of Fujifilm GFX 50S. What the real difference is, is the shooting experience. So I will share a few reviews down below, but none will tell you how the Fujifilm GFX 50R feels in your hands.

PhotoKina 2018: The Year DSLRs Died. What to Expect from Fujifilm and will FujiRumors be There?

images I took at photokina 2016… can you find Waldo

The Year of Mirrorless

This years’ photokina will probably the most exciting of the last 20 years.

We will assist to the death of DSLR’s (that’s it my friends, just accept it), and open the new era of mirrorless.

Paraphrasing the famous sentence from the movie Deadline we could say “that’s technology, baby, there is nothing you can do about it, nothing“.

Sure, the transition from DSLR to mirrorless won’t happen overnight. But that’s the trend. And that’s why Canon and Nikon are starting to get serious about mirrorless, too.

On this years photokina we will see the following new mirrorless cameras from Fujifilm:

Not a rumor, but regarding Fujifilm lenses, I’d not be surprised to see:

  • Fujinon GF 100-200mm F4.5-5.6
  • Fujinon GF 35mm F2.8
  • Fujinon GF 20-36mm F3.5-4.5
  • GF pancake lens is not confirmed
  • and of course the XF200mmF2 and XF8-16mmF2.8

Mock-ups:

  • Fujinon XF16-80mmF4
  • Fujinon XF16mmF2.8
  • Fujinon XF33mmF1.0 (not sure)

FujiRumors @ Photokina

I am 80% sure I will be there, but if I go, I sadly I can’t be there for more than 1 or (best case) 2 days.

I was at photokina in 2016, also just for one 1 day, because my school principal didn’t give me more days off (and yet, when I came back, I had huge problems to focus on my job again).

In 2016, the by far busiest booth was the one of Fujifilm, but, between me and you, the most beautiful one was without a doubt the one of Leica (don’t tell Fuji, but I’ve spend hours (!!!) there).

This year, Fujifilm won’t have such an easy game to play like in 2016. The competition is strong, and that’s good for us customers.

The biggest problem?

Well, on the same Photokina days, there is also worlds largest beer festival, the Oktoberfest in Munich (I’ve never been there). So I stand in front of tough decisions: Oktoberfest or Photokina? Life can be so cruel!!!

Let me know in the poll, where I should go ;)

FujiRumors Should...
