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. ;)
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.
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.
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.
