Here is a another new Fujifilm XF 50mm f/1 R WR lens review published on Lens Tip. The US price is $1,499.95 and it is now in stock at Amazon, B&H, Adorama.
Fujifilm XF 50mm f/1 R WR lens is a very good option if you do not own a XF56mm and would like weather resistance. It has a rounded diaphragm and its wide maximum aperture means that, paired with Fujifilm’s X-Pro3 and X-T4 cameras, users can autofocus at a luminance level of -7EV.
The Fujifilm XF 50mm f/1 R WR is a somewhat contriversial lens. See Best and Worst Cameras and Lenses of 2020. You can read the full review here or see the highlights below:
According to recent reports, Fujifilm will have a major product announcements on January 27, 2021. When we look at the rumored Fujifilm mirrorless cameras and lenses for 2021, there are some prominent products that are likely to be announced on this date. Now let’s see what cameras and lenses can be announced at this major Fujifilm announcement.
The Fujifilm GFX 100S, X-E4 cameras as well as XF 27mm f/2.8 MK II and GF 80mm f/1.7 R WR Lens are expected to be announced on that day. More details after the break! Continue reading…
The Fujifilm XF 10-24mm f/4 R OIS II Lens is now in stock and shipping from several camera stores. The US price of the wide-angle zoom lens is $999.95 and available at major stores such as Amazon, B&H, Adorama.
Despite the sealing, the new lens is very slightly lighter than its predecessor (by 25g / 0.9oz) and optical image stabilization has been improved by one stop, bringing the total stabilizing effect to a rated 3.5EV (CIPA). When combined with the in-camera IBIS system of the X-T4, total stabilization increases to 6.5EV.
Now featuring weather-resistance, the new lens should be a better companion for the similarly tough X-T4 and X-T3. Continue reading…
Fujifilm XF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 OIS Lens is expected to be announced in early 2021. It is said that this telephoto lens, which will be added to the company’s product range and is currently on the XF lens roadmap, will have a budget-friendly price.
Encompassing a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 105-460mm, this lens will serve to bridge portrait length to true telephoto perspectives and integrates several mechanical features in order to produce sharp, clear imagery.
Previously there were questions on whether the upcoming Fujifilm XF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 OIS Lens is weather resistant or not. We now know from the mock-up displayed at the Fujifilm X summit, it is marked as “weather resistant”.
Finally good thing is that, if you want to put together a set of Fujinon lenses to cover a wide focal length range with fewer optics, you could combine the 10-24mm, 16-80mm, and this 70-300mm. In other words This will complete a new lightweight, weather-sealed trinity with the 10-24 f/4 Mark II and the 16-80 f/4 a better companion for the similarly tough X-T4 and X-T3.

Sigma is rumored to start producing lenses for Fuji X-mount cameras. As a result expect Sigma Lenses for Fujifilm in 2021.
About one year ago Sigma said they wanted to develop for Fujifilm, but their resources were limited at that moment. Now looks like its time and they could start developing lenses for Fujifilm. It’s probably the result of so many asking Sigma to release lenses for X-Mount since Fujifilm has the most professional APS-C system at this time.
