We already told you that the Fujifilm X100V successor will be launched in early 2024 (and ship in late 2028 probably :) ).
Well, today trusted sources have informed us that the Fujifilm X100V replacement will come with a “new lens”.
No further details for now but I am working on it and update you as soon as I can.
But I want to be clear:
“New lens” for now is a vague hint and could mean just anything: from a minor redesign that would make the lens weather sealed without the need to apply a filter (which is currently needed to seal the X100V lens) or also a redesign with different focal length/aperture [for example the patented 20mmF2 lens for X100 cameras]. Just everything is possible at this point.
So, for now “new” just means that there will be differences over the X100V lens, but how strong this difference will be I can’t tell right now.
A minor change? A substantial redesigned? I’ll make sure you’ll get the answer here on FujiRumors.
Certainly this comes surprising, as in 5 generation of the X100 line (X100, X100S, X100T, X100F, X100V), Fujifilm has refreshed the lens only once, on the last generation, the X100V. So personally I would not have expected another refresh to come that soon again. But it’s happening. Word of trusted sources.
