Nokishita spotted the FF180005 being registered for its Bluetooth chip. They believe it is the Fujifilm GFX100 being registered, but it could be another camera update. We will see very soon and some of our wallets are going to hurt pretty bad soon if it’s the GFX100.
A reader contacted me about Meike 6-11mm F/3.5 Wide Angle APS-C asking for more information. This very interesting lens from Meike was missed, but Amazon actually has lots of details about it and it is in stock without any reviews. It looks like this lens was released November of last year and it gives you two lenses in one. The Meike 6-11mm F/3.5 Wide Angle provides photographers with two lenses in one a very wide fisheye and a wide angle lens all in one.
Fujifilm released a video of their X Summit for GPP Photo Week 2019 and it’s full of interesting details about upcoming lenses and firmware update. We also get a rare look at prototype hardware and what the GFX could have been and might someday become. The modular Fujifilm GFX is pretty amazing looking and it is kind of the direction I always thought they might go in so that the system becomes more of an interchangeable back type camera. Everyone looked really into the modular prototype so let’s hope that someday soon Fujifilm will have the technology to make one.
Apotelyt used all the details from here and here to put the Panasonic S1R in their comparison system and it’s a very interesting match up for the Fujifilm GFX50R. I personally would still favor the Fujifilm GFX50R heavily especially considering how compact and light it actually is compared to the S1R, but the new Panasonic S1R is quite a technological achievement. You can follow it’s launch at 43addict if you’re interested. The official announcement is expected within the next 24 hours.

The Fujifilm X-T3 compares very well to the Panasonic S1 and it is significantly lighter. Apotelyt hasn’t added their size comparison photos yet, but they should be up soon. I hope we get to see the new 5760k dot viewfinder in the upcoming Fujifilm GFX100 and Fujifilm X-H2. You can follow it’s launch at 43addict if you’re interested. The official announcement is expected within the next 24 hours.
The Fujifilm Fujinon XF 200mm f/2 R LM OIS WR is Fujifilm’s first professional long lens and it is getting high marks from reviewers. I hope to get my hands on one for some project in the future and I might even consider buying one if the price comes down a little, but I simply can’t justify the full price at this time, but the inclusion of a high-quality XF1.4 TC certainly makes the price a little easier to swallow.
