DPRTV is doing something new with their latest Fujifilm X Summit reaction video. Below is a summary:

  • Fujifilm’s biggest announcement that they have ever done
  • The GF35-70mm does feel kind of plasticy, but the lens is super sharp and well corrected with minimal breathing
  • There is a tilt-shift coming but we don’t know the focal length or aperture
  • Many use Canon tilt-shift lenses on the GFX right now, but you can’t tilt it very much and Fujifilm’s solution should allow for a lot of shift
  • The best lens for landscapes on GFX has been the 23mm f/4 up until now
  • The announcement of the GF20-35mm now gives us another great option for landscape photographers
  • If the GF20-35mm is f/4 constant it will be huge and a f/4.5-5.6 might be a good compromise for size
  • Hopefully the GF20-35mm will allow for front filters too instead of filters that fit on the back of the lens
  • The GF55mm f/1.4 makes sense because there aren’t a lot of fast lenses in that range
  • The GF55mm is the only GFX lens they announced with an aperture
  • The X-T30 II has the same processor as the X-T4 so now in the entry-level you have a choice between the big-bodied X-S10 with a PSAM dial and IBIS or the compact body of the X-T30 II with traditional dials
  • XF23mm f/1.4 is new optics that is weather resistance, fast, and sharp, but not having the focus clutch from the previous XF23mm is disappointing
  • XF150-600mm coming from Fujifilm is exciting, but we have no idea what the aperture is going to be or if this will be a very expensive
  • Fujifilm needs to get some great long glass out there before Tamron starts releasing some of their glass or Sigma decides to start releasing X-mount lenses
  • The XF18-120mm for X-mount is yet another lens without an aperture that is designed with video in mind
  • The XF18-120mm is going to have a linear motor so it might be difficult to manually focus unless it is a power zoom or something like that
  • Fujifilm is telling them no clutches with linear motors
  • New Stacked BSI sensor with an X-Trans filter was also announced
  • The new sensor will really step up X-mount and might be shutterless
  • APS-C will allow for a faster readout speed than Full Frame
  • Predicting two bodies one that is more sport centric and one that is more video-centric
