Fujifilm GFX100 Has Two Joysticks

Fujifilm GFX100

When I was at Photokina, Fujifilm was very attentive not to display the Fujifilm GFX100S from the backside. And also the images they published on the web so far don’t show the backside of the camera.

However, I took a close look at the images we have so far, and I noticed that there are two joysticks at the back of the camera (see top image). Other cameras with integrated battery grip, such as the Nikon D5 and the Canon 1Dx MK II, also have two joysticks. And also Fuji’s own vertical grips for X series cameras offer an additional joystick.

Down below more leaked Fujifilm GFX100 specs… definitely more exciting than today’s one ;).

Recently we also compared the size of the Fujifilm GFX100 with several other cameras, including the Sony A7III and many more. Check out the comparisons here.

Fujifilm GFX50S: Can Hasselblad Compete With Fujifilm, GFX 50S vs Nikon D850 vs Sony A7RIII vs Canon EOS 5DS, Gigapixel Image

Fujifilm GFX

With the release of the more affordable, smaller and lighter Fujifilm GFX50R, Fujifilm has dropped the price of the Fuji GFX50S to $5,499 (check BHphoto, Adorama and AmazonUS).

The Fujifilm GFX 50S might be still more expensive over the “R”, but if offers features the Fujifilm GFX50R does not have, such as the 3 way tilt screen, a tiltable and ultra large EVF, top LCD screen and more.

And after months of buzz only around the Fujifilm GFX50R, I decided to decdicate a roundup to the Fujifilm GFX50S only.

And at the bottom you will find a few images from our gigiantic Fujifilm GFX facebook group.

Venus Optics Laowa 17mm f/4 Zero-D for Fujifilm GFX to be Launched in March

Laowa 17mm F4

At my photokina visit in September 2018, I could not miss to visit one of the rising stars in the lens industry, Venus Optics.

Their Laowa 9mm F2.8 Zero-D lens ended up being the best selling lens 2018 here on FujiRumors. Check out top 3 selling lenses, cameras and overall camera gear in this dedicated article.

At Photokina, I also had the opportunity to handle the Laowa 17mm f/4, the widest G-mount lens for the Fujifilm GFX system.

Well, I have to inform you that the wait for this lens will be a bit longer than expected, since we have been informed (thanks), that the Laowa 17mm f/4 Zero-D GFX will come in March 2019.

I did share a hands on video of the Laowa 17mm f/4 Zero-D as well as hands on images and specs already.

I remind you that Venus Optics also offers the Laowa Magic Format Converter for Fujifilm GFX, which allows you to adapt your Canon and Nikon full frame lenses onto the Fujifilm GFX without any vignetting.

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? ;)
