Top 3 Selling Cameras and Lenses for June on Fujirumors: Fujifilm GFX 100 beats X-T3

Fujifilm Top Sellers

These are the top selling cameras and lenses for June 2019 here on FujiRumors, and there is a quite a surprise!

Of course, the rankings below are representative only for the FujiRumors community and not for overall sales.

Most of the items listed below are discounted until July 6. Check out all Fujifilm deals here.

4th of July deals

Top Cameras

Only by a hair, but it was enough: the Fujifilm GFX100 sold better (pre-orders included) than the Fujifilm X-T3.

We wrote here, that the request for the GFX100 is higher than Fujifilm expected, and some say even triples Fujifilm’s forecast. Keep in mind that the GFX100 is brand new, whereas the X-T3 is on the market since 10 months already.

The Fujifilm X100F will not get a successor in 2019, hence it continues to fall into the hands of more and more photographers.

Out of the list are cameras like the Fujifilm X-T30 and Fujifilm X-H1, as well as the Fujifilm X-Pro2, which will get successor, the Fujifilm X-Pro3, this year.

Top XF Lenses

The deals on these lenses are running out. You have time until July 6 to get them discounted. Check out all Fujifilm deals here.

Top X Mount Third Party Lenses

Native Fujinon lenses are still selling stronger, but these third party lenses are coming terribly close to them. There is a market amongst the Fuji X community for third party glass. And especially the Viltrox 85mm f/1.8 autofocus lens is stable at the top positions since its launch.

The Kamlan 50mm f/1.1 and  7Artisans 60mm f/2.8 Macro kicked out of the ranking the Samyang 12mm f/2 and the Meike Neewer 35mm f/1.2.

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

Kai Wong Fujifilm GFX100 Hands On Review: “You Do Get Quite a Bit for Your Money”

Fujifilm GFX100

Kai Wong went hands on with the Fujifilm GFX100. Here is what he thinks about it:

  • medium format is ment for tripod still subject shooting, but not with a body like the Fujifilm GFX100
  • feels good in the hands
  • like a Canon 1DXII in terms of size and weight, but the GFX100 has a much bigger sensor inside [and I’d also IBIS]
  • it functions like an oversized Fujifilm X, at least almost. No D-Pad, no retro dials
  • skin smoothing effect smooths out ever imperfection. Works only for the JPEGs
  • autofocus is pretty damn good. Same AF algorithm of X-T3, but lenses have bigger glass to shift, hence not as fast AF as X-T3
  • Fujifilm X-T3 and X-T30 eye-AF is right up there with Sony
  • Kai’s GFX100 struggled to detect faces, but on other GFX100 samples face and eye detection worked well
  • Eye AF is accurate and fast enough, although feels a little bit slower than on Fujifilm X-T3
  • the GFX100 sensor is 4 times bigger than the sensor on the X-T3
  • tracking mostly does a good job, although, understandably, sometimes it doesn’t shift the glass in time when the subject is moving at decent pace towards you
  • EVF is sooo good
  • shutter really well dampened (shock absorber), and you need it, with medium format 102 MP
  • nice soft shutter button, like on Fujifilm X-H1
  • using IBIS, works easily down to 1/125
  • no fancy dials, and Kai missed them, since turning a dial is easier and quicker than pressing a button and looking at the LCD
  • not too many negatives
  • electronic shutter means bad rolling shutter, but no surprise with a big sensor like that, and probably you are not going to use electronic shutter on the GFX100
  • works well enough on the streets, but not the obvious choice for street photography
  • a camera for landscapers, who need more resolution and more details
  • you can push it 4 stops and still get nice clean, crisp images
  • nobody buys the GFX100 for video, but it deserves credit since Fujifilm has done video well on the GFX100
  • uses 4K with no crop. Footage looks great. AF works great. Rolling shutter contained and video is still usable
  • IBIS works superbly to shoot stable video
  • You do get quite a bit for your money
  • Props to Fujifilm and well done to all those lucky buggers that can afford one
