ONE MORE THING! Additional Fujifilm GFX 50R and Fujifilm GFX 100S Information Plus Roadmap Update!


The conversation with my source earlier didn’t end with my post and I wanted to get breaking information out to readers ASAP, because others have been copying my leaks and claiming ownership of them, sometimes within minutes of posting them. So now I can confirm a few things. The GFX R will be 50MP in 2018 and it will be followed by the GFX 100S in 2019/2020. The Fujifilm GFX 100S will be “expensive”, but this probably means it will retain the $6,499 price point of the previous camera, while the 50MP cameras will have a lower price point. I very much believe that Fujifilm plans to use the GFX to knock out high-end full frame cameras, which can be seen by the lens roadmap.

The lens roadmap that I reported a few months ago should start being announced after the 250mm begins shipping starting with the 80-180mm lens. Beyond the roadmap, the release schedule is unclear, but Fujifilm intends to release 25-30 GFX lenses within the next 5 years, which is incredible! The only reason to release this many lenses at this pace is if they expect their medium format system to perform more like a tradition camera system, similar to the X-system.

I included a few quotes from our conversation below for you to interpret.

GFX R ( I liked the name) will have 50 MP sensor. I can not give a date

after  announcement and shipping of GFX 50R , GFX 100s may come at 2019 the price will be very expensive (When I get clear information, I’ll write)

after GFX 250 mm lens, fujifilm will announce telephoto GFX lens and probably will be 80-180mm ( I wrote before)

there is no modification about GFX lens road map as I wrote before, announcement date of them is unclear. I think, They announce one by one until the end of the 2018. ( Their target is to have 25-30 GFX Lenses within 5 years)

If you are a GFX fan make sure to join our Fujifilm GFX Owners Group and follow the Fujifilm GFX Page to get all the latest information. We have been on top of this camera from the start and are still the only dedicated Fujifilm site using the Fujifilm GFX system daily. We even went as far as to compute the exact printable dimensions of the camera from the sensor before the camera was available.

    It is always nice to see Fuji in a medium format. They used to be a synonym for MF cameras back in the film days…
    GX680 is still a beast.
    Speaking about new MILC MF, actual 50mp model is more than enough for the majority. Maybe they should improve af and that’s it…

    This is exciting to say the least. It would be a godsend if Fuji would include a few leaf shutter lenses in their roadmap. Not many, but a few new leaf shutter lenses would garner a lot of serious consideration from on location portrait and upper end wedding photographers. Just my humble opinion.

    • I would love to see a leaf option, but I it’s not on any of my roadmaps yet…

        Louis, any idea on who I could send a heartfelt letter to express my (and many others’) desire for a leaf shutter option? Also, thank you for your diligent work.

        • Not really, but their FPS team can be pretty talkative. Almost everyone I have talked with at Fujifilm is very friendly, but sending E-mails to them has gotten me nowhere. It seems picking up the phone and calling around gets you far with Fujifilm.
