Fujinon XF16-80mm f/4 Finally in Stock

The Fujinon XF16-80mm f/4 is shipping and in stock at BHphoto here.

Fujifilm Manager Toshihisa Iida said at the recent Fujifilm X Summit, that pre-orders are very high for the Fujinon XF16-80mm f/4 and that the factory is working full power to try to deliver as fast as possible.

On the other hand, the delay might have been also caused by Fujifilm’s need to address some firmware updates first, which now have been released here, and they have sorted out some issues.

If you want to save some bucks on the lens, it’s sold also in combination with the X-T3 at BHphoto, Adorama, AmazonUS and Focuscamera.

The regular bundle price for X-T3 with 16-80 would be of $2,000, but until November 17 you can get it for $1,800.

Steelsring Nikon F to Fujifilm GFX Smart Autofocus Adapter Available

Steelsring NK-F to GFX Smart Adapter

Before we share the news about the Steelsring N/GFX autofocus smart adapter, it’s important to recap:

  • May 2018: Development announcement of Steelsring Nikon to GFX autofocus adapter
  • September 2018: Beta testing delayed
  • March 2019: Steelsring updates its website and says the adapter is coming soon

Since then, no more news.

However, all of a sudden, the Steelsring NK-F/GFX smart autofocus adapter now appeared for sale at AmazonUS here and at eBay here.

At the moment of this article ebay has 2 available and AmazonUS is selling via this retailer.

Also, on ebay the adapter shows the “Steelsring” brand printed on it, but it is sold as a Peipro NIK-F for Fujifilm GFX smart adapter.

And last but not least, on the official Steelsring website here, there is not mention of this adapter being finally available, and the last firmware is still marked as for beta testers only.

Fuji GFX group member Paul bought it, and here is what he wrote in this post:

I contacted the seller of this item as its been 2 full business days since my order. They have responded within minutes and told me that the developer wanted to make some final changes to the product so that it’s ‘perfect’ before shipping but that it should ship this week. So I said, fine, I’ll wait. Yours sincerely

With all that said, here is what the official specs listed on AmazonUS say:

  • NK-F GFX Adapter Ring auto focus,auto iris (G head).
  • Special D head diaphragm adjustment.
  • NK-F GFX Adapter Ring sure synchronize exif information and support firmware USB upgrade.
