Fujifilm GFX100

What you see here today, are the first images of the Fujifilm GFX100 backside, shared at gao3366 instagram back on the 15th of October 2018.

But since nobody reported about it, it’s once again time for FujiRumors to break the news, thanks to a FR-reader, who sent me the link yesterday (I asked gao3366 for permission to share his images).

So here is what we can see:

The Fujifilm GFX100 has 2 joysticks (no surprise), no D-Pad and a 3-way tilt screen. And looking at the buttons, I guess nobody will complain they are to small and hard to press ;). More images down below.

Of course this is just a prototype and things might change a bit until its release later this year.

As we have shown in our size comparison here, the Fujifilm GFX100 (which has a medium format sensor and IBIS) is not bigger than full frame cameras with integrated grip, such as the Nikon D5 and the Canon 1Dx MK II.

Fujifilm GFX100 Has Two Joysticks

Fujifilm GFX100

When I was at Photokina, Fujifilm was very attentive not to display the Fujifilm GFX100S from the backside. And also the images they published on the web so far don’t show the backside of the camera.

However, I took a close look at the images we have so far, and I noticed that there are two joysticks at the back of the camera (see top image). Other cameras with integrated battery grip, such as the Nikon D5 and the Canon 1Dx MK II, also have two joysticks. And also Fuji’s own vertical grips for X series cameras offer an additional joystick.

Down below more leaked Fujifilm GFX100 specs… definitely more exciting than today’s one ;).

Recently we also compared the size of the Fujifilm GFX100 with several other cameras, including the Sony A7III and many more. Check out the comparisons here.

Fujifilm 2019 Camera and Lens Release Timeline (and a bit of 2020)

Fujifilm 2019 Timeline

It’s time to put some order in the myriad of rumors, and give you guys a timeline of the Fujifilm products that will come in 2019, as well as give a quick glance at 2020.

This is just an approximate timeline, that I will update as soon as I get new information.

January/April 2019

  • Fujifilm X-T30*
  • Fujinon XF16mm f/2.8 R WR*
  • Fujinon GF 100-200mm f/5.6 R LM OIS WR*

* based on our rumors

May/August 2019

  • Fujinon GFX100*
  • Fujinon XF16-80mm  f/4 R LM OIS WR**
  • Fujinon GF 50mm f/3.5 LM WR***

* based on our rumors
** our sources say XF 16-80 will not come in early 2019
*** just an educated guess by FujiRumors, but it could make sense to announce it along with Fujifilm GFX100

September/December 2019

  • Fujifilm X-Pro3*
  • Fujifilm X100F Successor*

* based on reports at techardar. I place them in the second half of 2019, because I do not think their release is imminent (if techradar is right about 2019 release)

Top Possible Bonus Gear in 2019/2020

  • Fujinon GF 80mm f/1.4 R LM WR*
  • Fujifilm X80**
  • older XF lenses refresh***

*based on rumor
** wishful thinking based on XF10 disappointment :)
*** no rumors. but please, FUJI, PLEASE!!!

Coming 2020

  • Fujifilm X-H2*
  • Fujinon XF33mm f/1.0 R LM WR**
  • Fujinon GF 45-100mm f/4 R LM OIS WR**

* our sources say it will not be released in 2019, hence must be sometimes in 2020, since I don’t think Fuji will wait until 2021
** based on official Fujifilm roadmap

Probably Not Coming in 2019/2020

  • Fujifilm X-E4

Fujinon GF100-200mm F5.6 R LM OIS WR First Look and Samples (Coming First Quarter 2019)

Fujinon GF100-200mm F5.6

The Belgian shop PCHstore shared the first images of the Fujinon GF100-200mmF5.6 R LM OIS WR, as well as a first sample shot with crop. A selection of the images can be found down below.

You can read the PCHstore first impressions article in French here (google translated). Amongst the others they write:

Our first impressions are more than good! This lens is relatively light, handy and the optical quality after our first tests is at the rendezvous. In addition the GF100-200mm is stabilized which is very valuable when we have the tremblotte like me

The Fujinon GF100-200mm F5.6 LM OIS WR should arrive in the course of the first quarter of 2019 if our information is correct

If you are in PCHstore area, make sure to run there, since they write that “for those who would like to see it; the GF100-200mm will be visible until tomorrow 12H!

Back in September, Fujifilm announced the new Fujinon GF lens roadmap, which included the GF100-200mmF5.6 R LM OIS WR, GF50mmF3.5 R LM WR and GF45-100mmF4 R LM OIS WR.
