Updated Fujifilm 2019/2020 Camera and Lens Release Timeline

Fujifilm Timeline

It’s high time to update our older Fujifilm 2019/2020 camera and lens release timeline.

This is just an approximate timeline and expect to see updates to this list over the next few weeks and months.

For now, this is mainly just an update to the list we shared back in January.

All rumors are as always exclusive FujiRumors.com information. When I just make some guess, I will highlight that for you in the notes.

  • IMPORTANT NOTE: We are talking about release timeline, not announcement timeline.

How Many Lenses a Year?

  • as we told you here, at the current pace and current resources, Fujifilm can release about 2/3 GF and 2/3 XF lenses a year
  • the list below contains 1 XF and 1 GF lens
  • hence we can expect to see 1/2 more XF and 1/2 more GF lenses to join the list
  • Fujifilm has given up options to vote which lenses should come next

Fall 2019

Coming 2020

Expect 1 or 2 more X as well as GF lenses. My guess:

  • GF 21mm F4 Tilt Shift
  • XF 10mm F2

Probably NOT Coming 2019/2020

* our sources say it will not be released in 2019, and probably not even in 2020. But Fujifilm managers confirmed here, that the X-H line will continue

Top Possible Bonus Gear in 2020

* based on this old rumor rumor
** wishful thinking based on XF10 disappointment
*** no rumors. but please, FUJI, PLEASE!!!
**** no rumor, just a mere wild guess

Fujifilm GFX100 Orders Triple Fujifilms’ Forecast and the GFX100 Stock and Shipping Status Update

I recently wrote an article on why I believe the Fujifilm GFX system has a glorious future ahead. You can read it here.

I mention that article, because in the comments a FR-reader said that pre-orders for the new GFX100 are strong:

Talking to a Fuji rep at a GFX100 demo and he said orders were triple that of forecasts

Another report from the Fujifilm GFX group says:

I got information, now. I have to wait GFX100 a month [in Japan]. If ordering now, have to wait 2 months. What a big mount of order.

From my own sources I can only confirm that pre-orders are stronger than expected.

If all this is correct, then you can expect delivery shortage.

Let’s look at the 3 major stores:

  • B&H Photo: first batch is shipping but BH has more pre-orders than stock, so they wait for more cameras to come from Japan
  • Adorama: It is listed as “On Backorder”. Our GFX group members contacted Adorama, who told them to expect shipping early July.
  • AmazonUS markes it available within 1 to 2 months.

Some lucky guys already got their Fujifilm GFX100 shipped, and are now very actively sharing impressions and samples at our Fujifilm GFX group.

Fujifilm GFX100 Shipping and First User (Bug?) Reports

Fujifilm GFX100

The Fujifilm GFX100 is now shipping.

It is still not marked as in stock at major retailers, but the small ones have already shipped to customers.

They already share unboxings, hands on experience and some even what are supposed to be bugs, such setting resets. But I remind people, that you have to give the little internal battery a long first charge, otherwise it has not enough juice to keep your camera settings stored while you remove the big battery.

Also, before screaming for bugs, you better read the GFX100 owners manual.

Some members of our massive Fujifilm GFX group have already received their samples, and
