New Fujifilm GFX Prime Rumor and Contact Request

Before I drop the first rumor I have received in a while I want to remind readers that I cannot help you sort things out if you do not include reply information on the contact form. Almost 100% of the emails I receive from readers are anonymous with no way to follow up and some will keep sending msgs about how they are upset I haven’t replied to help them out. If this doesn’t apply to you great, but for those that want to be anonymous and would like to build a rapport please put a code in your email so I can track if this is your first rumor or not. Sadly I haven’t heard from my long-time rumor dropper in almost a year and I hope they can reach out soon and all is well.

The Rumor
Sorry about the above but this rumor is from a new source that did not identify themselves, but since I haven’t shared a rumor in a while and this one sounds plausible here it is… Fujifilm will release a Fujinon GF56mm f/5.6 R WR soon. Possibly along with the new GFX that we know is coming and it is my belief that this lens will be a more affordable compact Fujifilm GF 50mm f/3.5 R LM WR. The GF 50mm f/3.5 R LM WR is a great compact lens, but Fujifilm could build a true pancake lens with the above specs.

To be clear my speculation begins around where I said my belief since the rumor was vague and I currently have no way of checking any msgs that might come in about it later. Either way, this should be a great year for GFX, and with Fujifilm pushing the GFX line to be smaller and more compact, almost anything is possible. We know GFX has been great for Fujifilm and I think we will see the lineup grow quite a bit this year and next.
