At Photoforum 2019 in Moscow, a Russian youtuber went hands on with the Fujinon XF 33mm f/1.0 R WR and XF 16-80mm f/4.
The youtuber had a chat with the Fuji rep, that the automatic google translation tool has a hard time to tranlsate, so if any Russian FR-reader has some spare time to do something good for the FR-community, feel free to drop your translation in the comments down below.
Until then, all I could get is that apparently the youtuber, after handling the XF33mm f/1.0, says:
“it feels like around 800g weight“.
Update with translation by FR reader
33/1.0 dummy represents weight and size for now. Guess it will be pretty expensive. Awaiting next year
16-80 will be affordable lens with extendable barrel (dummy shows folded state only). Also said that 16-80 will be lightweight lens for travellers and videographers
Of course the unit shown is just a dummy (the lens is on the roadmap for 2020), but dummies are usually accurate representations of the lens in terms of size, look and weight.
With that said, it’s still a long way, so there might be changes in size and weight until the final Fujinon XF33mm f/1.0 hits the market in 2020, and dummies we see later on this year might look different than the early ones we see now.
Whatever comes, you only have to do one thing: follow FujiRumors to know everything as fast as possible ;).
