What To Expect From Fujifilm…
… and 2 Notes

The Ultimate Fuji X: I know that this camera was in Fuji’s plans, and I know they scrapped it in favor or the Fujifilm X-T2S (which is basically an “ultimate X light”). However, I decided to already move the ultimate X rumors in the wrong rumor section, because I need a public statement of Fujifilm that such plans existed to share it as a correct rumor (as it happened with the X-Pro1s)… and also because otherwise the wrong rumor section would have been empty :)

Fujinon 33mmF1: In January, I reported that the 33/1 has been scrapped. As a consequence, I launched a huge lens request poll, where the 33/1 became the most voted prime lens by the FR-community. The results might have convinced Fujifilm to think about it again, as a rumor recently suggested. Hence you will find 2 rumors down below… the one that says the 33/1 has been canceled, and the one that says there is a little bit hope again.

HIGH RATING*
* 75% to 99% correct

Don’t Worry, Fujifilm X-H1 In Body Image Stabilization (IBIS) will Work with ALL Fujinon X-Mount Lenses

Fujifilm X-T2s IBIS

UPDATE: Fujifilm changed the name from X-T2s to X-H1. All rumored specs remain the same

Fellow Fuji Lovers,

I’m getting some emails from X-shooters, who are worried the IBIS on the Fujifilm X-T2s (the successor of the X-T2) will not work with all Fujinon X-mount lenses, but just with a few ones.

So I thought it might be good to share a little update: the IBIS on the Fujifilm X-T2s will be compatible with all Fujinon X-mount lenses.

This is the information I got from my sources… and since they have always guided me safly through the stormy Fujifilm rumors waters, I have complete and blind trust in them.

Wait, stop… don’t ask me when the X-T2s will hit the market. I’m still not 100% sure (and I don’t know if even Fujifilm itself is 100% sure when to launch it). But you know that here on FujiRumors we often share information already months (if not years!) before official announcements. So the X-T2s could be one month, but also 1 year away.

I’ve created a dedicated Fujifilm X-T2s facebook group, so that you guys can kill the waiting time for the X-T2s with talks, dreams, rumors, news… and just have fun :)

The Super X-deals

As we reported first here on FujiRumors, the Fujifilm X-T1, a camera that I still own and love, is now officially discontinued (I wrote an emotional farewell here). So, while it was to expect that Fujifilm would launch some nice deals on it, I guess nobody could have imagined that they would be that awesome!

For example, if you buy a $500 discounted Fujifilm X-T1, you will get a free XF35mmF2 WR on top of it!!!

And yes, if you then upgrade to the X-T2s, the XF35mmF2 will be stabilized thanks to IBIS ;)

For those, who always wanted to try the Fujifilm X-system, this is the best deal ever to join the X-side of life ;) . The deals are so good, that even Europeans could save a whole lot of money (all details here).

Fujifilm X-T2 Successor to be Called Fujifilm X-T2S – UPDATE: Changed to X-H1

Ok guys… here is another nice rumor for you.

I would like to inform you that the successor of the Fujifilm X-T2 will be called Fujifilm X-T2s .

At this point, some of you might remember, when I once said that Fujifilm will release an X-Pro1s, which evidently never materialized. Fujifilm even had working prototypes of it, as they officially showed here, but then they scratched the concept in the last second, skipped it, and waited for the X-Pro2 to be ready.

At this stage, though, I don’t think the X-T2s will have the same fate of the X-Pro1s. Fujifilm seems very convinced of the project, and this makes me very confident to share it here on FujiRumors.

Now, I like to imagine many of you guys somewhere on holidays, relaxing with a beer on a beach or admiring a great panorama from the top of a mountain. And I really do not want to disturb you too much.

But I have the feeling that it could be worth to tune into FujiRumors now and then also from your holidays in the next couple of weeks. Sure, I’m aware that no rumor on earth can beat a good beer on the beach, but I’m working hard to try to give you a little fun time also here on FujiRumors ;) .
