Fujifilm GFX Secret Roadmap: What We Got, What Changed and What is Still Missing

I just gave a quick look at the internal Fujifilm GFX roadmap FujiRumors leaked back in April 2017.

At that time, the internal Fujifilm roadmap considered the following lenses:

  • GF 250mm F4
  • GF 35mm F2.8
  • GF 20-36mm F3.5-4.5
  • GF 100-200mm F4.5-5.6

The roadmap, that you can see here, mentioned there will be “GF 20-36 or GF 100-200“.

Now let’s see what we got so far, what changed, and what’s missing:

What we got:

What we got, but changed a bit:

  • GF 100-200mm 5.6 (originally planed as f/4.5-5.6)
  • GF 30mm F3.5 (originally planed as 35 f/2.8)

What’s still missing:

  • GF 20-36mm F3.5-4.5

In June 2017, our sources then informed us, that the Fujinon GF 80mm f/1.4 has been added to the internal GF lens roadmap.

But also in this case, it took Fujifilm longer than expected to release it, mainly because of prolonged internal discussions, that ended up changing the lens from GF80mm f/1.4 to the one we find in the newest GF lens roadmap: the Fujinon GF 80mm f/1.7.

So what can we expect next?

Well, the current roadmap officially shows:

  • 2020 – Fujinon GF30mmF3.5 R WR
  • 2021 – Fujinon GF80mmF1.7 R WR

It’s strange Fujifilm didn’t add any tilt shift lens to the roadmap, because, if you remember the official Fujifilm G mount lens request survey, Fujifilm gave us only tilt shift lenses to vote on.

But as there will be surely at least one more G mount lens coming in 2021 (along with the Fujinon GF80mm f/1.7), maybe we could see one of these two options coming:

Let’s hope we will get both these lenses in 2021, in addition to the Fujinon GF80mmF1.7 R WR.

BREAKING: Fujifilm GFX 100S Development Announcement on September 25 at 07:30 AM New York Time

Fujifilm GFX 100S

Trusted sources just told to FujiRumors, that the Fujifilm GFX 100S development announcement will take place on the same day of the Fujifilm GFX 50R announcement, hence September 25 at 07:30 AM New York time.

Development announcement” means we won’t get the specs (but we already know it will feature the BSI 100MP Sony sensor), however, you will see mockups and maybe even working prototypes of the Fujifilm GFX 100S.

As we already told you back in December 2017, the Fujifilm GFX 100S is rumored to be definitely more expensive than the Fujifilm GFX 50S.

So, this rumor ends here, but it’s not over yet :)

New Fujinon GF lenses

I have no rumors about it, but I guess that along with the Fujifilm GFX 100S and Fujifilm GFX 50R, we might also see some new GF lens announcements and maybe even a new GF lens roadmap.

In fact, according to the internal Fujinon GF lens roadmap we leaked back in April 2017, Fujifilm has still the following lenses in the pipeline:

  • Fujinon GF 100-200mm F4.5-5.6
  • Fujinon GF 35mm F2.8
  • Fujinon GF 20-36mm F3.5-4.5

The leaked roadmap says, that Fujifilm had to decide between the GF 100-200 or the GF 20-36mm for 2018, and at this point I believe GF 100-200 is more likely, with the GF 20-36 to be postponed to 2019. But that’s still my guess, more than a solid rumor.

And speaking of GF lenses, we also shared the following rumors:

Fujifilm GFX 50R

Recently here on FujiRumors we published a major Fujifilm GFX 50R specs leak. We also wrote a follow up article about the crazy dreams and realistic expectations about the Fujifilm GFX 50R.
