DON’T MISS IT: September 2 at 9AM New York Time – Fujifilm X Summit and Live Blog on FujiRumors

Lots, if not everything, has already leaked here on FujiRumors about the upcoming Fujinon GF35-70mm f/4.5-5.6.

We know about the collapsible lens design, we know about its size (see above), we know it will not have OIS and no aperture ring, we know its price.

Another tidbit, though, we can add today, is that the Fujinon GF35-70mm f/4.5-5.6 will weight less than half than the one Fujinon G mount lens I own and I am totally in love with as it is a prime lens that can zoom: the Fujinon GF32-64mmF4 R LM WR (which weights 875g).

I see what Fujifilm is trying to do here.

I mean, how the heck can any zoom lens compete with the stellar GF32-64?

Certainly the GF32-64 is unbeatable in terms of image quality. I mean, have you seen the image I’ve shared of the village I live in and I did a massive crop and you could still clearly recognize the curtains on my sleeping room? And the lovely pop it has even when shot af f/5.6?

If you can’t beat it in terms of image quality, then beat it in almost everything else: make it much smaller, much lighter and much more affordable, and it will have a chance to carve out its niche among Fujifilm GFX shooters.

I personally will stick with the Fujinon GF32-64mmF4. Mainly because I already own it, and because I used it on a 6 hours hike recently. I packed with my GFX100S in my small Camslinger Outdoor bag (yep, it still fits in that small bag !!) and hiked no problem with it.

So for now I don’t see the need for the GF35-70mmF4.5-5.6, although having such a light and compact G mount zoom would certainly be a temptation for those looking to make their GFX system as portable as it gets, maybe in combination with the super small GF50mmF3.5 prime.

GF 35-70 Rumor Recap

Fujinon GF35-70mmF4.5-5.6 to Cost $999 (Lens Only) and $500 (Kit Price)

According to information we have received, the upcoming Fujinon GF35-70mmF4.5-5.6 will cost $999. However, you can get it for $500 if purchased in kit with a GFX body.

This makes it the most affordable G mount lens along with probably the next lens I’ll buy for my GFX100S, the Fujinon GF50mmF3.5.

And you have no idea how tempted I am by the GF50mmF3.5. Just don’t tell my wife about it ;).

Fujifilm GFX50SII Rumor Recap

Fujinon GF35-70mmF4.5-5.6

Don’t Worry: Fujinon GF35-70mm f/4.5-5.6 is Weather Sealed

FujiRumors told you already back in March (!!!) that Fujifilm will launch the Fujifilm GFX50SII.

And over all these months, we have leaked, price, specs, release date and more.

We have also told you that, along with the Fujifilm GFX50SII, Fujifilm will launch a new and affordable zoom lens, the Fujinon GF35-70mmF4.5-5.6.

When we leaked the first details (no aperture ring, $500 kit price, etc), some FR-readers were sure that this would be the G mount equivalent of the Fujinon XC lenses, hence just a plastic mount and possibly not even weather sealing, in order to keep it as cheap as possible.

But that’s not correct.

The Fujinon GF35-70mmF4.5-5.6 will have a metal mount and, that’s today’s rumor, according to our sources it will also be weather sealed!

Well, I am sorry to disappoint you ;).

Unlike the Fujinon XC lenses, the Fujinon GF35-70mm f/4.5-5.6 will have a nice and shiny metal bayonet!
