Dear Fujifilm, We Decided: These are the X and G Lenses You should Make Next

Top Lenses Results

So, the jury is in and a record-breaking 14,000+ of you guys voted the lens future polls!

It was an exciting head to head battle and for the overall results check this article.

For the X system, I have picked the most voted prime and most voted zoom lens, since last time we launched a huge lens request poll, Fujifilm also picked our top prime and top zoom, and made our wishes become reality.

For the G system, the selection was smaller, so I picked only the most voted lens.

When it comes to firmware wish lists, the race is extremely tight. Check the winner down below.

Top X Mount Prime and Zoom

  • Fujinon XF 10mm F2
  • Fujinon XF 18-35mm F2

Top G Mount Lens

  • GF 21mm F4 Tilt Shift

Top Wanted Firmware

  • Focus Bracketing Function

FUJIFILM’s Priority: Refresh Older Lenses or Release New Glass? – VOTE NOW

Next Fujinon Lenses

I told you over 1 year ago, that Fujifilm will not launch more than 2/3 lenses for each system (X and G) a year, at least not until Fujifilm will boost lens production by 70% within 2020.

So I thought it’s time that you guys tells what Fujifilm should prioritize.

Should Fujifilm focus on releasing MK II versions of older glass or on releasing complete new lenses not yet covered in focal length and/or aperture by existing ones?

And I remind you that almost 8,000 of you guys already voted on which older Fujinon lens Fujifilm should update next. You can check out the results here.

FUJIFILM X AF Lenses: SIGMA Needs Bigger Market Share, TOKINA Designed X Glass Already but Stopped by Royalties, TAMRON is Vague

I have received a rumor by a new source (thanks) regarding Sigma, Tamron and Tokina lenses for Fujifilm X mount.

  1. Sigma: it depends on Fuji’s market share (we already shared the rumor here)
  2. Tamron gave vague answers to our source (there were rumors of  Fuji support in the past)
  3. Tokina has actually started to design some lenses for Fujifilm already, but they don’t finalize and launch them because of royalties they have to pay to Fujifilm

Of course take it with a grain of salt for now, and if I get any updates, you will read them here on FujiRumors.

But I just remembered, what top Fujifilm manager Toshi said, when DPR asked him here, if Fujifilm welcomes glass by third-party lens manufacturers:

They’re not open standards as yet, but of course our customers want choice. We’re always considering what would benefit our customers, and more lenses are generally beneficial for customers.

Dear Fujifilm, your Fujinon glass is nothing but amazing, but we indeed want more options, and if it’s true that some kind of protectionism is holding off some third-party manufacturers to launch autofocus glass for Fujifilm, then please change your policy.

With that said, we are in the world of “grain of salt” with this rumor for now ;).

But if somebody out there has some knowledge to share, feel free to contact me via email at fujirumor@gmail.com or via anonymous rumor box (use a nick-name if you want, so that I can recognize you if in future you decide to share something else).

Which Older Fujinon X Mount Lenses Should Fujifilm Update Next? POLL

Fujinon XF Mark II

About 2 years ago, I asked you guys which APS-C lenses Fujifilm should make next.

Your response was overwhelming, and you recommended thousands of lenses. I meticulously collected all your suggestions, and made a 30 lenses poll out of them.

The rest is history: as you can see from the results here, you guys vote the XF33mmF1.0 followed by the XF16-80mmF4 as your most wanted lenses, which are exactly the lenses Fujifilm recently added to their X mount roadmap.

Today I’d launch another poll.

This time it’s not about completely new lenses, but about which “older” Fujinon lenses Fujifilm should update.

What does “update” mean?

Mainly it means:

I debated if I should include the XF16-55mmF2.8 and XF90mmF2, which I know many would like to have OIS. But I decided not to include them, since the workaround is to use Fujifilm X-H1 and future Fujifilm X-H2 with IBIS. And who knows if down the road there will be more IBIS camera bodies. Check out the Fujifilm X Camera replacement timeline here.

I will be very cruel to you guys and give you only 1 option to vote :)

Happy voting… and may Fujifilm listen also this time.
