Fujifilm GFX50R Clarification


FujiAddict posted the first correct information about the Fujifilm GFX 50R and X-T3 coming to Photokina 2018 last year and now the details are starting to get shaky thanks to everyone wanting to be on the GFX R bandwagon. This camera is going to be huge for Fujifilm and most of what has leaked falls within our original rumors except for the $3,600 price tag that Photorumors received the other day. Now Camerabeta, which leaked the above photo has come back with a $4,500 price tag.

It’s possible that some of the conflicting rumors about this camera are the result of Fujifilm trying to crack down on leaks by making changes to how information is distributed internally. So I am going to list the details by confidence:

Most Likely

  • Fujifilm X-E3 style with similar button layout, no ISO dial, and only shutter and exposure.
  • No top display
  • Joystiq
  • Tilting screen two-axis flip screen
  • Dual SD card slots
  • September 25th Announcement

Likely

  • Thickness less than 42mm so no more bulge on the sensor
  • Weightless than 800g vs 920g
  • NEW 40mm pancake lens

Unsure

  • Price of $3,600 to $4,500 but should be around at least our original leak of between $3,900 to $4,300

I think we can all infer more from what’s leaked, but the announcement isn’t very far away and I would rather be conservative about my reporting. Some sources are better than others and I hope to maintain high standards for out leaks instead of back peddling on rumors all the time like other sites do.

Make sure to join us on September 25th for our live blog for the best Fujifilm Photokina coverage around. Fujifilm has an event scheduled for September 25th at 07:30 AM York time, which is when we expect the announcement to occur so stay tuned.
