What to Expect from Fujifilm in Early 2021: Smaller GFX100, GF80mmF1.7, X-E4, XF27mmF2.8 and Surprises… but a Fujifilm X-H2?

I don’t know you, but to me it looks like Fujifilm setting up a big show for the beginning of 2021.

Thanks to rumors reported here on FujiRumors, we already know that in early 2021 we will get:

I am constantly at work, and I think the surprises won’t end here. But I am working on it, triple checking and making all things necessary to give you guys accurate information.

So, expect the list above to be updated in near future and definitely stay tuned on FujiRumors.

And let me clarify one thing.

Some FR-readers erroneously thought that FujiRumors predicted the Fujifilm X-H2 for early 2021. Well, I never did. All I did is to say back in 2019, was that there won’t be any X-H2 in 2020.

There will be an X-H2 at some point, but none of my contacts has told me so far it will happen in early 2021.

What we know from the big Fuji bosses themselves, is that Fujifilm is working on a breakthrough before releasing the Fujifilm X-H2. Stay tuned on FujiRumors, and as soon as I can I will let you know when we can expect such a breakthrough.

The GFX Community

Fujifilm GFX page

According to fresh rumors we have received also the mother of all lenses, the Fujinon GF 80mm f/1.7 will come in early 2021!

FujiRumors has already covered the lens in the past. We shared:

Well, now we know also when it will arrive: early 2021.

I have the feeling that a wonderful lens is coming our way. A lens that next year DPReview will not be able to ignore in their awards declaration. ;)

Hold on guys, as more rumors will come ;).

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.

Fujinon GF 80mm f/1.7

LEFT: GF110mm f/2 vs GF 80mm f/1.7 Size Comparison // RIGHT: GF 80mm f/1.7 mockup

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 ;).
