Not everything that Fujifilm has officially teased or we have rumored here on FujiRumors will come during the X summit on May.

But today we can add one item to the list of gear that will come: the Fujinon XF 18-120mm f/4!

So, at the time of this post, the gear that we know will certainly be announced on May 31 is:

For FujiRumors readers this does not come surprising, as we told you already on April 15 that Fujifilm will have an X summit on May 31.

Well, now Fujifilm has made it official and unveiled to the world that the Fujifilm X Summit will be held on May 31 at:

  • 9AM New York Time
  • 3PM Berlin Time

No further details, but thanks to FujiRumors we have a list of gear Fujifilm plans to launch in 2022.

What will surely come is the Fujifilm X-H2S, and very likely also the Fujinon XF150-600mmF5.6-8, as this is just the perfect companion for the ultra fast 26MP stacked sensor Fujifilm X-H2S.

What will NOT be fully announced are the high resolution Fujifilm X-H2 (it will come later), the XF56mmF1.2II and maybe also other gear in the list below.

And of course, X summits often include some surprises that have never been rumored before, and Fujifilm also likes to show mock-ups of upcoming gear on such events.

So definitely stay tuned on FujiRumors, where we will have a massive live blog with LIVE STREAM INCLUDED!

Fujinon GF20-35mm f/4 Constant Aperture (According to Fujifilm’s Own Mock-up)

Back in September 2021 Fujifilm held a very interesting X summit, where they also displayed a couple of mock-ups of future lenses.

One of the mock-ups displayed was the Fujinon GF20-35mm lens (which we find also on the G mount roadmap).

Well, one detail about the GF20-35mm passed unnoticed until today.

In fact, after FR-reader Lars contacted me asking about more details about the GF20-35mm lens, I went back to the mock-ups and gave them another look.

To my surprise, I noticed a detail that during the hasty hours of the mega-launch-summit back in September I missed (and apparently nobody else noticed it either): if you look closely, blurred but still recognizable, you can see “1:4” printed next to “GF20-35mm” (see image above).

This means that, at least at the time of the X summit on September 2021, Fujifilm did plan it as a constant f/4 zoom, hence Fujifilm Fujinon GF20-35mm f/4 R WR.

So there was a change over the internal roadmap we leaked back in 2017, where it was displayed as Fujinon GF20-36mm f/3.5-4.5.

If Fujifilm sticks by that, then it would bring the Fujinon GF20-35mmF4 in line with other top tier GF zooms such as the Fujinon GF32-64mmF4 and the GF45-100mmF4.
