Fujifilm GFX Survives Fifteen Foot Fall, Fujinon GF 50mm f/3.5 Reviews, Zeiss Otus 100mm f/1.4 Meets GFX and More

Fujifilm GFX

So, while we wait for Fujifilm to finally be able to ship all Fujifilm GFX100 pre-orders, we dedicate a roundup to the super discounted Fujifilm GFX50S and Fujifilm GFX 50R.

And despite the frankly superior specs of the Fujifilm GFX100, still today, if I should pick one, I’d go all in with the Fujifilm GFX50R. That one, combined with the Fujinon GF50mm f/3.5, and I have a powerhouse version of my much beloved Fujifilm X-E3 with XF27mm (+beer  ;) ) combo.

Believe me, there isn’t a day, that I am not tempted to get it. But for me, making this step, would mean go all in with the GFX system (and leaving the X system), and given the great results I get with my X gear, I am not yet ready for such a big jump (and investment).

DPRTV Fujinon GF 50mm F3.5 Review

Fujinon GF 50mm F3.5

The Fujinon GF 50mm f/3.5 is not only the newest, smallest, lightest and most affordable lens in the GF lens line-up, but it’s also the currently best selling G mount lens.

But what do you give up in exchange for the small size?

According to Chris from DPReview, not much. Here is what he says in his Fujinon GF 50mm F3.5 review:

  • smallest and lightest lens for the Fujifilm GFX system
  • manual focus ring is buttery smooth
  • linear motor AF. Tested on Fujifilm GFX100 the AF speed is very impressive. From near to far focus is quick
  • lens design is relatively complicated compared to other “pancake” lenses, and it’s amazing that Fujifilm was able to keep it that small
  • minimal breathing
  • very sharp
  • can easily handle the resolution of the GFX100
  • the GF50mm f/3.5 is a full frame equivalent of 40mm f/2.8
  • very good center sharpness even wide open
  • surprising the corners, which hold up very well too
  • optically a very sharp lens
  • very minor and very well controlled color fringing
  • you are going to like the bokeh, maybe a little bit of a darker edge, but very smooth interiors and very nice round shape even stopped down
  • the lens is a bit too wide for portraits. the GF63mm is a better choice, or the best overall is the GF110mm f/2
  • macro capability is not amazing, but you will use it on high resolution cameras, so you can crop the hell out of it
  • Chris still prefers the 63mm focal length, but if you want to save money, size and weight, the GF50mm is great

Looks like Fujifilm crafted yet another winner. Well done, Fuji!

Panasonic Announces First Organic Sensor 8K Camera for Summer 2020 – Coming to Fujifilm X and GFX too?

Organic Sensor

Panasonic has recently announced the launch of the first 8K organic sensor camera for the 2020 Olmypic Games in Tokyo.

By putting an organic layer on top of the CMOS sensor, Panasonic promises three advantages:

  1. Wide dynamic range
    Additional 2 stops of dynamic range, from the current 14 stops to a target of 15/16 stops
  2. Global shutter
  3. Build-in Variable ND filters
    The use of conductive film allows to control the light amount coming to the sensor. You can control lights without changing aperture. You can maintain depth of field

After the Tokyo Olmypic games, Panasonic will put this sensor also into cinema, studio and consumer cameras, including the Lumix line-up. Full interview in the video below.

And Fujifilm?
