Let’s Go FAST: First Leaked Images of Upcoming f/1.4 Lens for Fujifilm GFX Mount

In terms of very fast lenses, Fujifilm is offering (or will offer soon):

If you want to go even faster, then you have to fo with manual focus lenses, more precisely:

However, I have received some images by a new source (thanks), of another ultra fast upcoming lens for the Fujifilm GFX system, with a maximum aperture of f/1.4. You can see the images above, mounted on the best camera of all time, the Fujifilm GFX50R.

I am trying to get more information about it, but for now, all I can say is:

  • 1.4 lens for GFX system
  • likely manual focus
  • it will be a wide-standard lens (wider than the Mitakon)

Curious for more? Then stay tuned on FujiRumors, and I will update you as soon as I can, since I am continuous talk with the source. ;)

Fujinon GF 80mmF1.7 and Fujinon GF 30mmF3.5 Size Comparisons

Fujinon G Mount Lenses – Size Comparison

The Fujifilm GFX community is salivating, looking at the latest G mount roadmap.

In fact, the new roadmap lists a stunning Fujinon GF 80mm f/1.7 lens, which in other sensor sizes is:

  • 63mm f/1.3 in full frame
  • 42mm f/0.9 in ASP-C, hence very close to Fuji’s new Fujinon XF50mm f/1.0

And to be clear: we apply the conversion to the f-stop, only to indicate the equivalent shallow depth of field, and not the light gathering capabilities of the lens itself, which remains the one mentioned on the lens (with the consequences we told you here).

We also find a lovely Fujinon GF 30mm f/3.5 lens, which Fujifilm says is meant for street and landscape photography, be very sharp and also focus fast.

At the recent Fujifilm X Summit, Fujifilm showed some mockups and also disclosed more details.

I thought we catch up on that, sum up all we know, and add a few size comparisons based on the technical sketches Fujfiilm delivered during the event.

Let’s start with the Fujinon GF 80mm f/1.7.

Above you can see a size comparison provided by Fujifilm. The Fujinon GF 80mm f/1.7 is 20% smaller and will weight under 800g, as opposed to the GF110mm f/2, which weights 1010g.

The picture above also shows the GF80mm f/1.7 mounted on the Fujifilm GFX100.

Fujifilm gave us some indications on what the differences between both lenses are.

The Fujinon GF 80mm f/1.7 will have a very creamy and softer bokeh compared to the one on the Fujinon GF 110mm f/2. Different bokeh quality for different tastes.

Also, due to its more compact nature, the Fujinon GF80mm f/1.7 is good for outside and active shooting, whereas the GF110mm f/2 instead is better suited for studio.

I decided to compare the Fujinon GF80mm f/1.7 to its closes in terms of focal length, the Fujinon GF110mm f/2 and the GF63mm f/2.8.

GF110 - GF80 - GF63
GF110 – GF80 – GF63

Fujinon GF30mm f/3.5

Next in our list is the Fujinon GF 30mm f/3.5.

In this case, we are going to compare it with the Fujinon GF23mm f/4 vs Fujinon GF 45mm f/2.8.

Sadly camerasize does not have the GF45/2.8 in their database, so I added it manually to the Fujifilm GFX50R.

Down below you see that it is just a tiny bit shorter than the GF23mm f/4

GF23 / GF 30 / GF45
GF23 / GF 30 / GF45

Both lenses are fantastic additions to the Fujinon G mount lineup.

What we want know thought, are the other ones we saw in the internal secret roadmap… but not so secret anymore, thanks to this leak ;).

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.

Fujinon GF 90mm f/1.4 Lens Patent Surfaced

A recently spotted Fujifilm patent shows the design of a Fujinon GF 90mm f/1.4. In full frame DOF terms, this would be a 70mm f/1.1.

With the GF80mm f/1.7 R WR coming 2021, I don’t see much need for a Fujinon GF90mm f/1.4 R WR. The gaps the Fujinon G mount has to close are definitely others, such as a tilt shift lens and a Fujinon GF 20-36mm f/3.5-4.5 for example.
