Fujifilm X-M1 camera has been pictured alongside the new XF 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OIS and XF 27mm f/2.8 lenses, with all three products nearing their June 25 announcement.
Fujifilm has been rumored to announce an entry-level X-Trans camera for a very long time. The company’s fans have been demanding such a device, ever since the powerful image sensor has been launched.
Fujifilm X-M1 photos leaked on the web, X-Trans sensor camera to come bundled with XF 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OIS zoom lens
The name of the device has also been speculated in the past and it seems like the rumor mill will be right once again, as several Fujifilm X-M1 photos have appeared on a Japanese website
Fujifilm X-M1 announcement date has been scheduled for June 25. The camera will be revealed alongside another entry-level shooter from the company, but that one will not come packed with an X-Trans image sensor.
It appears that the X-Trans camera will come bundled with a new XF lens, the 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 optic. This glass has previously been mentioned by trusted sources, too. People were unsure whether its top focal length will stand at 50mm or 55mm, therefore it is nice to have a confirmation before the launch event.
Fujifilm X-M1 specs list is still scarce, though there is not very much time left until its introduction
The Fujifilm X-M1 will feature a 16-megapixel X-Trans sensor, WiFi, hot shoe, integrated flash, and a tilting LCD screen. Its price is rumored to stand between $600 and $650, but everything will become clear next week.
Fujinon XF 27mm f/2.8 prime lens to be announced on June 25, too
Beside the Fujinon XF 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OIS lens, Fujifilm will also launch the XF 27mm f/2.8 prime lens. This pancake will be compatible with X-mount cameras, such as the X-Pro and X-E1.
The two shooters will receive a firmware update on that date, Fuji said, though the company has not specifically mentioned the new lenses.
The leaked photo of the Fujinon XF 27mm f/2.8 pancake lens does not leak too much information, but we will get the truth on June 25.
