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.
Fringer just released the Fringer EF-FX Pro II autofocus smart adapter for pre-order.
Main improvements of the 2nd generation of EF-FX Pro include
Redesigned aperture ring for more convenient operation
New MCU (more powerful, more resources for firmware update)
Better light absorbing design
The price is $299 + $25 (worldwide expedited shipping included. tax/duty not included). Fringer will begin to ship it before May 11.
The functions and performance of gen1 and gen2 are the same.
So far only the Fringer EF-FX Pro II is released. The non-Pro version is still available only in its first generation. In future, the functional firmware update for gen1 and gen2 will be released at the same time as long as the resources of gen1 are enough to support that.
