LEAKED: First Images of Fujifilm X-T30 Dark Gray and Hands On Images of XF 16mm F2.8, XF 16-80mm F4 and GF 50mm F3.5

Fujifilm X-T30 Leak

The Fujifilm X-T30, to be announced on February 14 along with the Fujinon XF16mm f/2.8, will come not only in the traditional black and silver, but also in a Fujifilm X-Pro2 graphite alike color. You can see the first images here on FujiRumors as well some images of the upcoming XF 16mm f/2.8, XF 16-80mm f/4 and GF 50mm f/3.5 shared by dpreview.

Personally I was never really a super fan of the Fujifilm X-T30 design, but I must say this new color raises its “sexiness” quite a bit.

There will be a huge live blogging on February 14 (bigger than you think ;) ), so stay tuned on FujiRumors and follow us on Facebook, Instagram, RSS-feed and Twitter.

Fuji Guy Billy: Fujinon XF 33mm f/1.0 Development Challenge, XF 16-80mm f/4 very silent AF, X-H1 Market Misunderstanding and More

Fuji Guy Billy Interview

Fuji Guy Billy joined the Fujilove podcast. For those of you, who are right now on the road or at work and you can’t listen to it all at iTunes, Stitcher or on fujilove, here are the key points:

Fujinon X Mount Lenses

Fujifilm X100, X-E3, X-T20 and X-T3

  • Fujifilm X100 was the game changer and started the X series success
  • When developing the X100, Fujifilm wondered who is going to buy a fixed lens camera at this price point, but it turned out to be a success
  • Fujifilm X-T3 is balance of size, weight and quality in a good price point, but for Billy even the X-T3 is big
  • Billy’s go-to camera is the Fujifilm X-E3, paired with XF35mmF2, XF23mmF2 and occasionally the XF50mmF2 because of portability
  • Fujifilm X-T20 with no joystick is a dealbreaker for him

Fujifilm X-H1

  • Fujifilm X-H1 latest firmware introduced lots of improvements and the new lower price makes it very tempting
  • The Fujifilm X-H1 maybe has been misunderstood by the market. It had a lot of new video features, so people considered it more a video camera. But it is also a better and more robust camera, and facilitates handling of bigger lenses. For Professionals weight is sometimes not a problem, but more durability. That’s why Fujifilm launched the Fujifilm X-H1. It should also appeal to DSLR customers, who were on the fence of switching to mirrorless. IBIS is quite nice also for photography, especially in low light
  • Shutter has an S1 (half press) and S2 (full contact to release shutter) position. Regarding the Fujifilm X-H1, you can contact your Fujifilm service and see if they have an option to adjust the S1 and S2 position to your taste (low, medium or high). There might be a charge for that service, depending on your country

IBIS

  • Fujifilm wanted to make an excellent IBIS system, and it is one of the best on the market. But the size of the system was too big to put it into other X-series cameras. At this moment, it can’t fit in other cameras, but hopefully one day IBIS can be designed smaller and make it fit on other cameras

Fujinon G Mount Lenses

  • Fujinon GF 50mm f/3.5 coming in 2019 and Fujinon GF 45-100mm f/4 in 2020
  • Fujinon GF 100-200mm f/5.6 R LM OIS WR: If you look to move into medium format, you don’t have many lenses initially to choose from, so zoom lenses can cover various focal lengths. The GF100-200 is compatible with teleconverter. It’s a little bit heavier, but very sharp. At that focal length with medium format sensor, you can isolate your subject very well

  • Tips and Tricks: Best way to navigate the menu is using the front and rear command dial. Front dial jumps from page to page, and rear dial jumps from item to item

Overpriced Fujinon Lenses at Launch? Fujinon XF 8-16mm (save $500) and XF 200mm (save $1,000) and More XF Lens Deals

Fujifilm XF Pricing

We recently compared here the Fujinon XF8-16mmF1.8 and XF 200mm F2 to equivalent full frame DSLR lenses, and we saw that the Fujinon lenses are generally cheaper.

However, the Fujinon XF 8-16mm f/2.8 LM WR was still more expensive than the Sony FE 12-24mm f/4 or the Sigma 12-24mm f/4. You can check out the specs comparison here.

With the latest rebate, though, the Fujinon XF 8-16mm f/2.8 price has been reduced by 25%, and it now beats in terms of pricing also the other full frame lenses.

So the question arose amongst the FujiRumors community: was the Fujifilm XF 8-16mm f/2.8 overpriced at launch?

Difficult to say, since the price is justified or not also depending on factors you can’t really read on specs papers, like image quality, build quality and more.

At the bottom of this article you will find a poll, where you can let us know what you think.

Regarding the Fujinon XF200mm f/2 LM OIS WR, (which is now $1,000 off), I believe the XF200mmF2 launch price was not overpriced, considering how it performs and that it comes with 1.4x teleconverter. But let us know in the poll below.

The launch price of $2,000 for the Fujinon XF 8-16mmF2.8 was...

Fujinon XF 8-16mm F2.8 and XF 200mm F2 Compared to Equivalent Full Frame Glass, Owner Manuals, Reviews and More

Fujinon APS-C vs Equivalent Full Frame Glass

The Fuji year 2018 saw the arrival of two high-end, fast and top quality lenses, the Fujinon XF200mm f/2 LM OIS WR and the Fujinon XF 8-16mm f/2.8 LM WR.

Both Fujinon lenses are still smaller, lighter and cheaper than perfectly equivalent full frame glass, as you can see in this comparison, where we compare the Fujifilm XF200mm f/2 (with 1.4 TC) versus the Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L and the Fujinon XF8-16mm f/2.8 with the Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L USM.

Check out the comparison here.

Price and size is one of the advantages of an APS-C system. For more advantages, read this article.

And as soon as the Fujinon XF33mm f/1.0 hits the market in 2020, Fuji’s APS-C system will have also an equivalent to something like the Nikkor 58mm f/1.4G and the Sigma 50mm f/1.4.

So, that was the fast glass.

But many people, who buy into an APS-C system, probably do it because they look for the best balance between size, weight, price and performance.

Lenses like the Fujinon XF 16mm f/2.8 (which will come soon) and the Fujinon XF 16-80mm f/4 (which will come later), perfectly fit into the philosophy of the “balance“. Great performance in a compact, flexible, portable and affordable package.

My prediction: Fujifilm will sell the XF16mmF2.8 and XF16-80mmF4 like hot cakes, just like they do with their f/2 trinity, the XF23mmF2, XF35mmF2 and XF50mmF2.

Good that Fujifilm is boosting up its lens production by 70%.

But today’s roundup is all for the big and fast guys, the Fujinon XF 8-16mm f/2.8 LM WR and Fujinon XF200mm f/2 LM OIS WR. Enjoy it.
