A new Fujifilm registration was leaked on Weibo a short time ago so now we have 3 cameras on the way from Fujifilm. The post also makes some interesting statements about there being 4-6 cameras expected in 2024 including the Fujifilm GFX100S II which will be a GFX100II with reduced video functionality. Fujifilm is also expected to release 4-6 cameras in 2024 so it should be an exciting year for fans of Fujifilm cameras.

Sigma 18-50mm F2.8 DC DN | Contemporary and 56mm F1.4 DC DN | Contemporary Shortages

This isn’t the first time that Sigma has been unable to keep up with demand for the Sigma 18-50mm F2.8 DC DN | Contemporary, but I am surprised to see the SIGMA 56mm F1.4 DC DN | Contemporary is also in short supply. Maybe users prefer Sigma’s new 56mm lens to Fujifilm’s since Fujifilm took away the manual focus clutch.

Apology regarding the supply status of “SIGMA 18-50mm F2.8 DC DN | Contemporary for Sony E mount, Fujifilm X mount” and “SIGMA 56mm F1.4 DC DN | Contemporary for Fujifilm X mount”

Thank you for using Sigma products.

We have received orders for some lenses for mirrorless cameras that exceed our expectations, and production is not able to keep up with demand. Therefore, we will temporarily stop accepting orders from today.

Also, it may take some time for the products you have already ordered to arrive at your doorstep.

We will inform you again on our website regarding when we will resume accepting orders.

We apologize for any inconvenience caused to our customers and related parties who are waiting for the product, but we are currently working diligently to produce it, so we ask for your patience.

We appreciate your continued patronage of our company and our products.

Product name/barcode :

  • SIGMA 18-50mm F2.8 DC DN | Contemporary
    For Sony E mount / 0085126 585655
    For Fujifilm X mount / 0085126 585754

Fujinon XF56mm f/1.2 R APD Discontinued Overseas

Fujinon XF56mm F1.2 R APD: B&H Photo / Amazon / MomentAdorama

The Fujinon XF56mm f/1.2 R APD has been discontinued overseas with a few retailers showing low stock.

  • Camera Kitamura: Completed products
  • Map camera: Out of production/in stock
  • Bic Camera: Now on sale
  • Yodobashi Camera: On sale/low stock

In the US we can see that

  • B&H Photo still has stock high enough to not list a stock status beyond in stock
  • Amazon shows 2 lenses left and the retailer is adorama so either this is adorama’s stock or this is the stock that Amazon has left for Adorama
  • Adorama still shows in stock which could be an indication that they have more not listed on Amazon or their website inventory system is out of date
  • Moment has one lens left in stock

So it looks like this lens will be discontinued globally shortly so grab one while you can if you want the creamy bokeh of the Fujinon XF56mm f/1.2 R APD.

BORYOZA FX-Z – The World’s First X to Z Mount Electronic AF Adapter

An interesting new company BORYOZA is about to release an X to Z mount adapter that will let you use your Fujifilm lenses on Nikon Z mount cameras.

  • The thinnest AF adapter on the market
  • Compatible with AF and automatic aperture
  • Compatible with image stabilization for X-mount lenses
  • EXIF information
  • Firmware update possible
  • 1480 yuan ($208)

For those who want to give this adapter a try, it should be available on Amazon soon. Nikon doesn’t have many APS-C lenses for Z mount so this could be a way to start building a collection of excellent AF lenses.
