Fujifilm 2019 Camera and Lens Release Timeline (and a bit of 2020)

Fujifilm 2019 Timeline

It’s time to put some order in the myriad of rumors, and give you guys a timeline of the Fujifilm products that will come in 2019, as well as give a quick glance at 2020.

This is just an approximate timeline, that I will update as soon as I get new information.

January/April 2019

  • Fujifilm X-T30*
  • Fujinon XF16mm f/2.8 R WR*
  • Fujinon GF 100-200mm f/5.6 R LM OIS WR*

* based on our rumors

May/August 2019

  • Fujinon GFX100*
  • Fujinon XF16-80mm  f/4 R LM OIS WR**
  • Fujinon GF 50mm f/3.5 LM WR***

* based on our rumors
** our sources say XF 16-80 will not come in early 2019
*** just an educated guess by FujiRumors, but it could make sense to announce it along with Fujifilm GFX100

September/December 2019

  • Fujifilm X-Pro3*
  • Fujifilm X100F Successor*

* based on reports at techardar. I place them in the second half of 2019, because I do not think their release is imminent (if techradar is right about 2019 release)

Top Possible Bonus Gear in 2019/2020

  • Fujinon GF 80mm f/1.4 R LM WR*
  • Fujifilm X80**
  • older XF lenses refresh***

*based on rumor
** wishful thinking based on XF10 disappointment :)
*** no rumors. but please, FUJI, PLEASE!!!

Coming 2020

  • Fujifilm X-H2*
  • Fujinon XF33mm f/1.0 R LM WR**
  • Fujinon GF 45-100mm f/4 R LM OIS WR**

* our sources say it will not be released in 2019, hence must be sometimes in 2020, since I don’t think Fuji will wait until 2021
** based on official Fujifilm roadmap

Probably Not Coming in 2019/2020

  • Fujifilm X-E4

Fujinon GF100-200mm F5.6 R LM OIS WR First Look and Samples (Coming First Quarter 2019)

Fujinon GF100-200mm F5.6

The Belgian shop PCHstore shared the first images of the Fujinon GF100-200mmF5.6 R LM OIS WR, as well as a first sample shot with crop. A selection of the images can be found down below.

You can read the PCHstore first impressions article in French here (google translated). Amongst the others they write:

Our first impressions are more than good! This lens is relatively light, handy and the optical quality after our first tests is at the rendezvous. In addition the GF100-200mm is stabilized which is very valuable when we have the tremblotte like me

The Fujinon GF100-200mm F5.6 LM OIS WR should arrive in the course of the first quarter of 2019 if our information is correct

If you are in PCHstore area, make sure to run there, since they write that “for those who would like to see it; the GF100-200mm will be visible until tomorrow 12H!

Back in September, Fujifilm announced the new Fujinon GF lens roadmap, which included the GF100-200mmF5.6 R LM OIS WR, GF50mmF3.5 R LM WR and GF45-100mmF4 R LM OIS WR.

Fujifilm GFX100 Gets Rid of (Marked) Dials, a Good Idea? VOTE NOW

Fujifilm GFX100 Dials

At photokina 2018, Fujifilm displayed the first mock-up of the Fujifilm GFX100 Megapixel camera, which will be announced in the first half of 2019.

And it could not pass unnoticed to the FR-community, that the Fujifilm GFX100S got rid of the shutter dial, leaving only one unmarked and customizable dedicated dial on the left side.

This change has let to some heated (but civil) discussions at our Fujifilm GFX group here, with the community split between those, who applaude this change, and others, who think Fujifilm should have kept their classic dial layout.

Here are some of the comments from this post:

  • Bigger screen – less dials
  • Bigger back panel – less clunky top plate
  • Its the reason I use Fuji, without I might as well just switch to a different brand
  • Oh please get rid of those useless dials
  • I do like the iso dial. It shortens the iso changing from three steps to one. (I work in the dark, so have to press the lcd light on before pressing the iso button, then adjusting the dial to the right iso)
  • Top dials need to stay
  • I love my dials, but if they made some small buttons with iso/af/wb/etc, I would be able to live with one wheel and no dials
  • Dials are much easier to operate then digging into 2 or 3 level menues

So what do you think? Is it a good move to minimize the amount of dedicated dials and offer only one unmarked dial, or would you prefer to keep the current ergonomics of the Fujifilm GFX 50S?

And wouldn’t that big top LCD be nice, if it was a touch screen? ;)

Mitakon Zhongyi Speedmaster 65mm f/1.4 for Fujifilm GFX Available Now and Reviews

Mitakon Zhongyi Speedmaster 65mm f/1.4

The Mitakon Speedmaster 65mm F1.4 for Fujifilm GFX is now available now at AmazonUS (via third-party) and eBay (check the warranty). Expect it to be available soon also at BHphoto and Adorama. You can also grab it directly at zyoptics.net with 5 year warranty.

Beta testers of the Mitakon 65/1.4 like Jonas Rask have already shared samples at our Fujifilm GFX facebook group since several weeks, such as Jonas Rask, who who say here:

“It’s a fantastic lens that I’ve really enjoyed shooting the past months. Not as sharp as the GF63 counterpart wide open, but it holds up really nice when stopped down.

Wide open, corners are not as sharp as center – obviously. But it has minimal vignette. Just to be clear, I was told that this is NOT a converted full frame 50mm f/0.95.

What you will get with this lens is a really unique look to your images.

We’ve all heard the phrase “I love that medium format look” – which basically translates into “Wide field of view combined with narrow depth of field

This lens will make your full body portraits look like something out of a Pentax 67 with 105/2.4.

You can obviously achieve this look with other lenses (Voigtländer 58/1.4, Minolta 58/1.2 etc) But the Mitakon just feels right at home on the GFX with its native mount and size.”

Jonas Rasks’ full Mitakon 65mmF1.4 review can be read at jonasrask here.
