VOTE NOW: Are You a Fujifilm X-T Shooter? Tell Us if You Own also the Vertical Battery Grip

We shared the rumor coming from a new source, that the Fujifilm X-T5 will be the first X-T camera that won’t offer a vertical battery grip option:

After we shared our rumor, some said this will totally cripple the X-T line (which is Fuji’s by far best selling line).

That made me wonder how popular the vertical battery grip really is among Fujifilm X-T shooters, so I thought I could launch a survey about it.

Laowa 10mm F4 Cookie Mirrorless APS-C Lens Leaked

The first images of the Laowa 10mm f/4 cookie lens by Venus Optics leaked at the Chinese platform weibo. It’s designed for mirrorless APS-C lenses.

Some might desire a faster lens, but keep in mind you’d have to sacrifize its lovely pancake size for that. You can’t have it all I guess.

You can always go for the Laowa 9mm f/2.8 Zero-D if you desire something faster.

RUMOR: Fujifilm X-T5 will Not Have Battery Grip Option – New Source

When Fujifilm launched the Fujifilm X-H2S, it also launched not one, but two battery grip options for it: the regular Fujifilm VG-XH and the file transmitting Fujifilm FT-XH.

So will this be the case also for the Fujifilm X-T5? Will it also get both options?

Well, apparently not.

A new source reached out to us and told us that there won’t be any battery grip for the Fujifilm X-T5.

This would mean that if you love to shoot with a battery grip, your only options will be the Fujifilm X-H2S and the upcoming Fujifilm X-H2. Or you can go with older models like the Fujifilm X-T4 with the VG-XT4 grip.
