The recently-rumored Fujifilm lens with a focal length of about 30mm and a maximum aperture of f/1 has had its exact focal length leaked on the web. It stands at 33mm, a trusted source has just revealed.
Fujifilm was rumored to be developing an ultra-bright prime lens back in April 2015. The Japan-based manufacturer has been said to be working on a lens with a maximum aperture of f/1 and with a focal length located somewhere in the 30-35mm range. Thankfully, a trusted source has managed to find out that the Fujinon lens in question is planned to offer a focal length of 33mm for the time being, albeit that could change by the time it becomes available on the market.

The Fujinon X-mount lens line-up is shaping up nicely and most users are pleased with the products they can purchase for their Fuji mirrorless cameras. However, there is always room for improvement and it appears that a super-fast prime lens is on its way.
The first rumors stated that the optic will employ an aperture of f/1 and a focal length around 30mm. Now, it appears that we are facing the launch of a Fujifilm XF 33mm f/1 lens.
Its focal length may seem unconventional. However, readers will have to take into consideration the crop factor. When mounted on X-mount cameras, that feature an APS-C-sized sensor, the Fujifilm XF 33mm f/1 lens will offer a 35mm focal length equivalent of 50mm.
Thanks to its bright aperture and focal length combination, it will be a good lens for a broad range of applications. Nevertheless, it could be expensive, so you might as well start saving money for it right away.

The source says that the company has not yet decided whether to release this on the market or not. Moreover, the focal length could be altered, too. This is not unusual for Fujifilm, as the Japanese manufacturer has changed its plans a lot of times in recent years.
Fuji is currently designing the optic therefore it could take some time before prototypes get into the hands of testers. The development phase has not been completed which means that we will need more time for getting new information. Either way, stay close to Camyx!
