  1. No not firmware. The newly released mk2 versions of these lenses. The 27mm is still loud to focus. The 10-24 has weather sealing now, same optics. 

    It doesn't give me confidence the rest of the lenses (if updated to new versions) will be any better for video.


  2. I am waiting to see what the X-H2 brings.

    I do like the idea of the X-S10 as a second body/bring everywhere camera, that can be rigged up for professional shoots. And the X-H2 as the work horse.

    There are just a couple of things that worry me about fuji.

    -they just updated the 27 2.8 and the 10-24 but didn't improve the quality whatsoever. The 27 mk2 is still loud and clunky when focusing, so they didn't even improve the focus motors.

    That makes me think when they update the 23, 35 and 85, they will just weather seal them, same optical quality (might be a good thing for some) and still be loud and sluggish when in use.

    -IBIS and auto focus needs to be rock solid. It is all over the place, every lens acts completely different. It really does make it hard to jump between lenses without having to adjust settings.

    We shall see what happens. 

  3. I wonder if they will re name the X-H2 to be the X-S1 to line up better with the X-S10 since they share a similar style. X-S1 being the full blown video flagship with full size hdmi, no record limits, 4K 120. 

  4. This looks like it could be a sweet little camera, possibly a mini X-H1.

    Rumors point to a deep grip, IBIS, same screen and sensor as X-T4, old battery unfortunately, and priced at $999.


    If fuji gets aggressive with this thing and gives us 4K60, we could have the budget king.

    I just wish fuji could get rid of recording limits on their cameras.

    And with the 10-24 mk2 lens supposedly coming this month, we will see if fuji has fixed all the auto focus and noise issues with their lenses.

  5. I don't think it will be the X-H2. Fuji already made that mistake when releasing the X-T3 right after the X-H1, which pretty much killed X-H1 sales. I think fuji is trying to squeeze out 1 more model with the X-trans 4 sensor. Next year fuji will release the X-H2 with a new sensor, giving the X-T4 enough time to be the flagship. 

  6. Fuji's lenses are what frustrate me the most. They have it backwards.

    Fast expensive primes: loud, slow focus, not weather sealed.

    Slower primes: weather sealed, faster focus, not as fun to use and look ridiculous with my large filters.

    Ultrawide zooms: either don't take filters, or aren't weather sealed.

    The 14mm 2.8 and the 23mm 1.4 both with the manual focus clutch would be an awesome 2 lens setup for video if they were updated. 14mm on a x-t30 with a gimbal, and the X-T4 with 23mm for handheld.

    My hope is fuji have been quiet about the lens roadmap because they don't want to hurt current lens sales by announcing too far in advance that updated lenses are coming in 2020

    Loved the early look at the camera. Was a huge fan of the XT3. Ultimately decided to stay with my GH5 because of IBIS and flip screen. Now the XT3 has it. My wife has the XE3 with the 16-55 and 35mm 1.4– being in the same ecosystem would make projects a lot simpler to pack for. 

    Would love to see the Viltrox primes announced soon though, the Fuji 35mm 1.4 is slow and loud for focus.

    I am hoping the 3 xf lenses that are suppose to be released in 2020 are updated 23 1.4, 35 1.4, 56 1.2. With fuji really advancing in video, they desperately need these to be usable for video.

    3.5" ?

    Would love to see this. If they remove the D-Pad like they are on every other model, they could certainly fit a larger screen. I also really like how thin the screen is on the X100V.

  9. I always wanted the edelkrone, but could never justify the price. I then saw this knockoff on indiegogo (ismartta.com) that was half the price, and actually better thought out . I got mine for 259usd. It is now up to 399. Still cheaper then the edelkrone though. Pretty good reviews on youtube.
