Fujinon XF70-300mm F4-5.6 Possibly with 67mm Filter Size

We recently published a size comparison here between the upcoming Fujinon XF70-300mm f/4-5.6 and other longer Fujinon X telephoto zooms.

In that article, we reported how FR-reader Fujiste calculated a filter size of 72mm.

Now FR-reader Xandros contacted me with his own calculations of the filter size, and according to him the filter size should be of 67mm. You can see his measurements in the image above.

As for its overall size, here on FujiRumors we calculated the length of the Fujinon XF70-300mm f/4-5.6, and we saw that it is roughly 1.5 cm longer than the Fujinon XF55-200mm f/3.5-4.8.

I guess the very compact size of the XF70-300mm f/4-5.6 will make it the strongest competitor to the good old XF55-200mm, and that’s probably the reason why Fujifilm is now heavily discounting the XF55-200mm.

What a nice lens Fujifilm gave us here!

My Cat and my XF18-135

SIZE COMPARISON: Fujinon XF70-300mmF4-5.6 vs XF55-200mmF3.5-4.8 vs XF100-400mmF4.5-5.6 vs XC50-230mmF4.5-6.7

One of the most my personal most pleasing surprises of yesterday’s Fujifilm X Summit, was to see the lovely Fujinon XF70-300mmF4-5.6.

It’s compact, it works with both, the 1.4x teleconverter and the 2x teleconverter and it is definitely a lens that I can see becoming a huge hit for Fujifilm.

Fujifilm showed some hands-on images yesterday at the X summit (all visible in our dedicated article), and they also shared some technical sketches.

I couldn’t resit my own curiosity, so I took the technical sketches and used it to compare it to other Fujinon lenses, more specifically to the.

You can see the results above.

Based on the size comparison, I tried to approximately measure the size of the Fujinon XF70-300mm f/4-5.6, and I saw that it is roughly 1.5 cm longer than the Fujinon XF55-200mm f/3.5-4.8.

Hence, according to this calculation, the Fujinon XF70-300mm f/4-5.6 is about 133 mm long.

Also, according calculations made by FR-reader Fujiste, it should have a 72mm filter size.

RUMOR: New Fujifilm X Lens Roadmap Coming Soon

According to a new anonymous source (that uses a nickname, thanks for that), Fujifilm is going to soon announce a new lens roadmap.

TO THE SOURCE: if you want, we can have a more direct and confidential talk via email (fujirumor@gmail.com). Would be great if we could. Otherwise no problem, thanks a lot already for the help today and for using a nickname, which helps me a lot already.

As you know, a top Japanese Fujifilm manager said there will be 4 new Fujinon X mount lenses within February 2021, and FujiRumors has already shared them all for you.

It’s unclear if there will be an update also for the G mount lens roadmap. But we have leaked Fujifilm’s internal long term G mount roadmap already.

BREAKING: Fujinon XF 10-24mm f/4 Mark II Coming Soon

A Fujifilm manager said back in February 2020, that, within the next 12 months, there will be 4 new Fujinon X mount lenses.

One of them is the Fujinon XF50mmF1.0, which will be announced very soon, on September 3rd.

And thanks to our sources, we also already leaked the following lenses:

And today we are going to share the last one to come, the…

  • Fujinon XF 10-24mm f/4 MK II

So, the complete Fujifilm roadmap for the next few months is the following:

So, my job is done. FR unveiled it all for you. Now feel free to do what you can do best here on FujiRumors: commenting and letting us know what you think about it!

My opinion?

Well, the Fujinon XF10-24 is a great lens already (and I own it), but there were two things I never understood:

  1. why Fujifilm didn’t make it weather sealed (sure, there was no weather sealed Fujifilm X camera when the XF10-24 was launched, but the glorious Fujifilm X-T1 would have followed just 2 months after the XF10-24mmF4 release)
  2. why Fujifilm didn’t give it a marked aperture ring, since it has a constant f/4 aperture

I strongly hope that Fujifilm will implement those two features on the upcoming Fujinon XF10-24mm MK II.
