Fujifilm GFX50R Discontinued, Zero Rumors About GFX50RII and Dreams About GFX100R

It’s over.

According to reports at digitalcameraworld, the Fujifilm GFX50R is now discontinued.

As a huge Fujifilm X-E line lover, the Fujifilm GFX50R would have been my most natural step into Fujifilm medium format.

However, as I don’t switch from X-Trans APS-C to Full Frame because the difference is negligible (and with lots of advantages on the APS-C side, too), I also thought that sure, going from 26 to 50 MP is OK, but at this point I prefer to go all-in and grab a 100 megapixel medium format Fujifilm GFX100S.

If there was a Fujifilm GFX100R, I’d have grabbed that one. But it looks like all I can do is to hope that one day in the future Fujifilm will give us either a Fujifilm GFX100R or an X-T styled GFX100 (as shown in these official Fujifilm prototypes).

But don’t get me wrong.

A camera with a PSAM dial, a dedicated custom settings dial and top LCD is stupidly easy and fast to operate. The total opposite of the original GFX100, which is the only Fujifilm camera I’ve ever hold in my hands where I thought “WTF, need to grab that owners manual“.

But I can’t really fall in love with cameras that are stupidly easy to use, I prefer those who are FUN to operate. Like my X-E or X-T cameras.

So, my wish for the GFX future are a GFX100R and GFX100T. But so far, I have absolutely zero rumors about it. And for the records, I have also zero rumors about a Fujifilm GFX50RII.

In any case, if you are also attracted by the rangefinder styled medium format Fujifilm cameras, then better grab yours now, as who knows for how long we will find the Fujifilm GFX50R in stock now that it is discontinued.

Good bye, Fujifilm GFX50R. I was one of the very first people to touch you, back then, at the photokina 2018, where I even illegally smuggled into the fair one day ahead of its official launch to meet you. May your heritage continue to live in the GFX lineup.

The Fujifilm X-T3 is $300 Off, but the “New” Fujifilm X-T3 WW is Even Cheaper!

We already told you that, silently and almost unnoticed, on September 2 Fujifilm launched the Fujifilm X-T3WW, a Fujifilm X-T3 camera without battery charger in the box.

If you are good without a charger, then you’ll save additional $100 over the currently $300 discounted Fujifilm X-T3.

Size Comparisons: Fujinon XF33mmF1.4 vs XF35mmF1.4 vs XF35mmF2 vs XF23mmF1.4II vs XF23mmF1.4 vs XF23mmF2

Camerasize has added the brand new Fujionn XF33mmF1.4 R LM WR and XF23mmF1.4 R LM WR. Hence you can now compare it to the other lenses in that focal range, the legendary Fujinon XF35mmF1.4 R and the much loved XF35mmF2 R WR as well as the original XF23mmF1.4 R (which was my trusty workhorse at the wedding I shot) and the XF23mmF2 R WR.

And just FYI, in case you wonder how accurate my leaked size comparison was, check out our article here. I’d say spot on!

In any case, lots of choices for Fujifilm X shooters in this range now. And that’s always a good thing.

Fujifilm FF210005 Registration Spotted

Nokishita spotted the registration for a new Fujifilm camera with the code name FF210005.

Fujifilm’s digital camera “FF210005” has passed Bluetooth certification. (There is a possibility of X-T30 II, but the specifications of Bluetooth described are different)

Don’t worry, there is not another MKII camera coming this year. It’s probably just the X-T30II, but I will take a look at it for you guys.

The Fujifilm X-H2?

Well, I don’t think. Registrations are spotted usually just 1 to 3 months from the camera release, and the Fujifilm X-H2 is definitely more far away.

Sometimes registrations can be spotted after a camera release, like in case of the Fujifilm X-E4.
