The same source that broke the Fujifilm GFX pricing for us that everyone else has copied in reporting has now reported the pricing of the Fujinon XF50mm F2 WR and XF80mm LM OIS WR Macro 1:1.
Fujinon XF 50mm F2 R WR $449 (Shipping mid February)
Fujinon XF 80mm F2.8 R LM OIS WR Macro 1:1 $1,999 $1,199 (Shipping the end of September)
I am a bit surprised by the high price of the XF 80, but it’s a very specialized lens so maybe they are counting on it being low volume. I’m curious how much it improves on the original Fujinon XF60mmF2.4 R Macro, which is the lens I choose to use for most of my product photography photos for the sites.
Updated: There was a typo in the original correspondence. The actual price is $1,199. Still high, but in line with other XF lenses.

“Since “GFX 50S” has not yet been published full specifications, I compared only the appearance.”
It’s nothing more than promotional photos side by side “clickbait.” Fujiaddict is pretty sure we know the exact size of the camera based on using the known sensor size to build a model camera (152.4 x 93 x 75 mm) w/o vf (152.4 x 113.71 x 75 mm) with viewfinder. Our Printable GFX is the only known accurate comparison photo at this time. It’s impossible to do much better at the moment.
It’s always nice to see how these cameras look next too each other, but the GFX 50S and X1D are much closer in size then these photos show, which misrepresents the GFX 50S.
Make sure to join our Facebook groups at GFX owners group and Facebook page if you want to participate in more factual analysis of the Fujifilm GFX system in the future. I hope to have a camera on day one so I can be an active part of the community.
Lots of photographers are pulling out old Fujifilm medium format cameras with the announcement of the Fujifilm GFX. Fujifilm’s rangefinder medium format cameras are a great value right now if you come across them. I hope the GFX and cameras like it lead to a medium format renaissance in photography. Many photographers are overly attached to the full frame format.
