Fujinon XF33mmF1.4 R LM WR ($799) vs XF35mmF1.4 R ($599) – My Thoughts and POLL

We already leaked the information that Fujifilm will release the Fujinon XF33mm R LM WR for $799.

Now, I expect this lens to be a fantastic performer: great build quality with weather sealing, fast and silent focus thanks to linear motor, nice features like the Aperture lock button and a fantastic optical performance.

But here is the thing: can it dethrone the little magical Fujinon XF35mm f/1.4 R from the X shooters heart?

I ask, because personally I am in love with the XF35mmF1.4. I use it a lot to take picutres of my son and it is always with me on travels.

Sure, the focus is rather noisy and not the fastest, but in my experience build quality is solid. I mean, I once had to jump with all my gear into the Mekong river to save my life, and all my gear died, expect for the XF35mmF1.4 (I told the story and where/why it happened here).

And looking at the customers reviews of the Fujinon XF35mmF1.4, I can safely say I am not alone to love this lens:

Now, I know it’s early to launch survey, given that the Fujinon XF33mm f/1.4 R LM WR has not yet been announced.

However, we can expect it to be a stellar optical performer with fast autofocus and great build quality. And most importantly, we have the price: $799.

So my curiosity today is: are you interested to get the Fujinon XF33mm f/1.4?

Personally, I see both lenses as complementing each other. I have the XF35mm f/1.4 and love it. It’s more affordable, it’s nice compact, it has character. However, if I was a working Pro, I’d probably also get the XF33mm f/1.4 for faster autofocus and clinically good image quality. So, the 33/1.4 for my job, the 35/1.4 for my pleasure and free time.

But how do you guys see this? Feel free to vote the survey down below.

Today we can tell you that both these lenses will have weather sealing as well as linear motor autofocus.

As explained by Fuji Guy Billy in this article, Fujifilm uses four different type of motors in their lenses:

  • stepping motors
  • linear motors
  • DC coreless motors
  • ultrasonic type of motors

Each motor has its Pros and Cons and you can read about it here.

Linear motors are certainly not the smallest, but they have two wonderful characteristics: they are fast and silent.

Fujifilm Product Timeline 2021/2022: About X-H2, GFX50SII, XF150-600 and More (And What Will NOT Come)

FUJIFILM 2021/2022

Time to update our previous X and GFX gear timeline, which was not only limited to 2021, but lacked of some gear we rumored in the following months.

Also, I’ll include a list of products that will not come as the fake rumors keep spreading and I notice a tendency in forums to believe just everything that is written or talked about somewhere, may it be a monochrome camera, and X-T40 with IBIS coming very soon, the X-H2 coming 2021 and totally random stuff like that.

But luckily there is a 100% efficient anti-fake-rumors-vaccine called FujiRumors, so check out the list down below to know what Fujifilm really plans and when it will come.

And it won’t end here.

In fact, I have a skype call scheduled with the Japanese source in very near future. After the last call a few weeks ago, we dropped a couple of rumor-bombs (X-H2 details, the end of X-Trans IV, no more X cameras in 2021, the new GF zoom to come second half 2021 and more stuff I am not allowed to share just yet).

I expect that also our next call will be very interesting.

In case you’d like to know what it shared with us, feel free to follow FujiRumors and get updates via Facebook, RSS-feed and Twitter.

But until then, here is the most updated list of gear to come (and gear that won’t come).
