2018 FujiRumors Top Sellers: Fujifilm X-T3 Wins, Fujifilm GFX50R Surprises and the Best Selling Lens is NOT a Fujinon!

Top Selling Gear 2018

A long and exciting year is ending, and let’s see which one was the favorite gear of the FujiRumors community in 2018.

Keep in mind this is the last day, where you can save big on most of the gear listed below. So make sure to check out the massive official Fujifilm X and GFX deals (exp. Dec.29) as well as the soon expiring BHphoto Mega Deal zone (exp. Dec.29).


The Anker PowerCore+ 26800 PD and Anker PowerCore Speed 20000 PD are officially recommended by Fujifilm to charge your cameras, while in use or when switched off. All details here.

And after 3 years, the SF Cable plug adapter loses the 1st position, probably because the brand new Fujifilm X-T3 charger, the Fujifilm BC-W126S, has a wall plug adapter built-in.

You can find the new Fujifilm BC-W126S at BHphoto, AmazonUS and Adorama.


The 4th position goes to the Fujifilm GFX 50R, which sold far better than the Fujifilm GFX50S, and here on FujiRumors it also sold better than the Fujifilm X-T20.

In real life, the Fujifilm X-T20 obviously sells much better than the Fujifilm GFX50R and also better than the Fujifilm X-H1. But the FujiRumors community seems to be more interested in Fujifilm’s high-end products.


The Laowa 9mm F2.8 Zero-D was by far the best-selling lens here on FujiRumors, beating all Fujinon lenses.

This shows that Fuji X Shooters are not Fujinon-slaves, and we are happy to spend our hard-earned money in third-party glass, as long as the quality is good.

The Laowa 9mm F2.8 Zero-D is now available only at BHphoto with $50 discount (expires December 31) and you can find it for regular price at VenusOptics here.

If only Sigma, Tokina, Tamron & Co would make X mount glass, too. I’m sure they would sell really good amongst us X shooters.


In 2018 we had the biggest price drop on the stellar Fujinon XF16mm f/1.4 (save $150 until Dec.29). This helped to boost the sales of this lens. Check the full list of massive Fujifilm X and GFX deals, they all expire today.

When it comes to Fujinon GF lenses, the best seller was the Fujinon GF63mmF2.8.


The Rokinon 12mm f/2.0 is consistently a top seller since years. And the FujiRumors community seems to have found in the Mitakon Speedmaster 35mm f/0.95 the perfect lens to manage the impatience, while waiting for the Fujinon XF33mmF1.0 in 2020.

The Mitakon and Rokinon are discounted today only at the BHphoto Mega Deal zone.

The Laowa 9mm F2.8 Zero-D is $50 off until December 31 only at BHphoto.


The fact that Capture One now fully supports Fujifilm, has definitely helped to make this software very popular amongst Fujifilm X and GFX shooters.

Remember that the discount on Capture One 12 will end forever on December 31. Use code “AMBFR” at checkout to save 10% on standalone versions and 5% on subscriptions.

Also Luminar 2018 and Aurora HDR 2018 are available with $10 discount using code “FUJI“.

DPReviewTV Best and Worst of 2018: Fujifilm X-T3 Beats Sony A7III and Nikon Z6, but Fujifilm X-T100 and XF10 Fail

Best Gear 2018

Chris and Jordan from DPReviewTV just published their best and worst gear 2018 epsiode.

The GOOD News:

The Fujifilm X-T3 wins the award for the best camera of 2018, beating the full frame Sony A7III and Nikon Z6.

The Fujifilm X-T3 has already been declared best camera of 2018 by many big youtubers and blogs. Check out our recent best of 2018 overview here.

The BAD News:

The Fujifilm X-T100 has been declared worst video camera of 2018, with a useless 4K. The Fujifilm XF10 is the thrid worst camera of 2018. Bad and unreliable focussing. Slow, laggy.

Dear Fujifilm, this is what happens if you put an old and slow processor in cameras that otherwise would have a very nice sensor.


Strangly, not a single Fujinon lens makes it into the list.

I believe the Fujinon XF200mmF2 would have deserved a top spot, and not to forget the Fujinon XF8-16mmF2.8 or the Fujinon GF250mmF4.

And maybe also the medium format Fujifilm GFX50R should have gotten at least an honorable mention.


  1. Fujifilm X-T3
  2. Sony A7III
  3. Nikon Z6


  1. Yashica Y35
  2. Pentax K1 II
  3. Fujifilm XF10


  1. Canon RF 50mm F1.2
  2. Tamron 28-75mm F2.8
  3. Sony 24mmF1.4 FE GM


  1. Sony 18-135mm F3.5-5.6
  2. Nikon Z lenses, particulary the 50mmF1.8. Ugly bokeh


  1. Panasonic GH5S (FYI: no IBIS camera. And why that is good, is explained by Panasonic here)
  2. Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K
  3. DJI Mavi II Pro


  1. Fujifilm X-T100

Fujifilm X-T3 Lensmate Thumbrest Available

The Lensmate Fujifilm X-T3 Thumbrest is now available in black.

  • Note the X-T3 thumbrest will not fit the X-T2, see our other listing on Amazon. No-compromise design specifically for the Fujifilm X-T3 with ideal length and curve geometry
  • Makes one-handed operation easier and retains access to all controls while preventing unintentional button presses
  • Integrated silicone insert provides thumb grip and bumper between camera body and thumb grip
  • Hidden silicone insert in hot shoe tab provides resistance to unintentional ejection
  • Since the X-T3 has a threaded shutter release all our custom soft release buttons will fit. See our other listings

Lensmate says they are still working with their Anodizer on a Silver X-T3 Thumbrest, because the Fujifilm X-T3 Silver topped camera is slightly darker than, say the X100F, it is challenging to get a satisfactory finish.

Fujifilm X-T3 Best Camera of 2018 according to Tony Northrup, ePhotozine and More

Fujifilm X-T3 Best of 2018

It’s the time of the year, where blogs and youtube channels declare the top gear of 2018. And as to expect, the Fujifilm X-T3 turns out at the top of the list quite often.

The Fujifilm X-T3 is the best allrounder camera on the market right now, a terrific value for money. Just take a look at the overwhelmingly enthusiastic feedback Fujifilm X-T3 customer reviews. At the end of the day, you get a lot for just $1,499, and that makes customers very happy.

And yes, many favor the Fujifilm X-T3 over the Sony A7III, even though it was a close call.

So here is an overview of the latest best of lists.

  • fujirumors – DPReview Declares Fujifilm X-T3 Best Consumer Stills/Video Camera 2018
  • fujirumors – Top Fujifilm Product 2018 – VOTE NOW
  • photographyblog -Fujifilm X-T3 Mirrorless Camera of the Year Award 2018
  • ephotozine – Fujiifilm X-T3 Best Advanced DSLR-Style Mirrorless Camera 2018
  • lensrentals – Most Popular Photography and Videography Products of 2018 (not many rent a Fujifilm)
  • ephotozine – Top 11 Best Entry Level Mirrorless Compact System Cameras 2018 (Fujifilm X-T100 ranked 11th)
  • TheHybridShooter Youtube – Best Cameras and Lenses 2018 [ Sony A7III | Fuji XT3 | GH5S | G9 ]

Tony and Chelsea Northrup (video below) declare the Fujifilm X-T3 their favorite camera of the year 2018. Incredible versatile camera. Great focussing during video, too. Great lenses and controls.

They do also say, though, that the Fujifilm has made one of the biggest overstatements of the year, by saying the Fujifilm X-T3 does shoot 30fps with AF (11/12 fps is more realistic). The Fujifilm X-H1 battery life is one of the biggest disappointments.
