Fujifilm will announce a new weathersealed mirrorless interchangeable lens camera in 2016. Some folks are stating that the company might even introduce the device by the end of this year’s first half. Until then, they have leaked some details about the so-called Fuji X-T2, which will replace the X-T1.
As recently-promised, Fujifilm has released firmware update 1.01 for the X-Pro2 mirrorless camera. The new firmware version is available for download for all users and the company recommends everyone to install it as soon as possible in order to fix an annoying bug and to improve image quality in long-exposure mode.
The rumor mill has previously said that Fujifilm will launch an XF 23mm f/2 lens before some lenses added to the official X-mount line-up. A different source is backing up these claims by stating that the launch of the XF 120mm f/2.8 R macro lens has been postponed until the fourth quarter of 2016.
The medium format rumors have returned! Fujifilm is once again in the spotlight, as the Japanese company is allegedly developing an interchangeable lens camera with a medium format sensor. A source has also revealed who will make the sensor along with the timeframe for the device’s release date.
Although a lot of rumors suggested that Fujifilm would add 4K video recording to the X-Pro2, the company has released its flagship mirrorless camera with such feature. Well, 4K movie support is coming to the X-mount line-up in the future, as a couple of the company’s reps have confirmed this information in an interview.
X-mount mirrorless camera users will be pleased to hear that Fujifilm is working on another lens. After the recent XF 200mm rumors, it appears that the company is also working on an XF 23mm f/2 wide-angle prime. The lens is said to be on track of a 2016 launch, before some optics that are present on the official roadmap.
Fujifilm is preparing more exciting announcements for 2016 after already introducing plenty of products, including X-Pro2, X-E2S and X70. It appears that the next camera to show up is a compact model and it consists of the X100T replacement. It will be called X200 and some of its specs have just been leaked on the web.
Sources within the rumor mill are reporting that Fujifilm is working on a telephoto lens with a fixed focal length and a bright maximum aperture. The product brought into discussion is the Fujifilm XF 200mm f/2 lens, which has been briefly mentioned in the past. Here is what we know about this super-telephoto prime lens!
Following the X-Pro2 and X-E3 rumors, another Fujifilm-branded camera is rumored to be in the works. This time, it is a compact model with a fixed-lens, albeit it is still an X-series product and will have an X-Trans sensor. It has been mentioned before and it consists of the Fujifilm X70, which will be placed below the X100T.
Here is the unexpected development of a long-forgotten story: it seems like Fujifilm will indeed launch a replacement to the X-E2 mirrorless camera. A reliable insider, who was right in the past, has revealed that the shooter is coming and that its name will be chosen between the Fujifilm X-E3 or X-E2s monikers.
The rumor mill is back with more information about the Fujifilm X-Pro2. There are high hopes that the mirrorless camera will be unveiled soon, while the shooter will offer improved ergonomics for the users. Additionally, the XF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR lens could be launched alongside the X-Pro2 in early 2016!

The products in question are the XF 35mm f/2 R WR prime lens and XF 1.4x TC WR teleconverter and their photos as well as specs have just been leaked on the web.
The rumor mill has recently begun talking about the replacement to the Fujifilm X100T. The compact camera will feature the same sensor that will be added into the X-Pro2. Meanwhile, new details have been leaked and they say that the Fuji X200 will come packed with a different lens from the one found in X100-series cameras.
The sought-after new Fujifilm flash has been delayed once again. This is what an insider is reporting, as the company’s plans have been messed up by unforeseen issues, including the Metz insolvency. Nevertheless, it seems like this is the last delay and that the flash will be released sometime in the first half of 2016.
Fujifilm will announce a new flagship X-mount mirrorless camera in the coming months which will feature an APS-C sensor. The company is also working on a new flagship compact camera, said to have a full-frame sensor. A source is debunking this myth by stating that the Fujifilm X200 will employ the same APS-C sensor as the X-Pro2.
