The rumored XF 33mm f/1.0 lens is on Fuji’s unofficial roadmap which means that the company may change their plans for future products. This makes the XF 33mm f/1.0 is a long-term rumor.
We need to underline a previous rumor we’ve shared last year in early 2015 for a XF 30mm f/1 prime lens with an ultra-bright aperture. That post were indicating the Company is in the first phase of development of a new prime lens designed for its X-mount mirrorless cameras. This might be the same lens with a similar focal length changes.
Fuji currently has the fast XF 56mm f/1.2 R lens which is an optically exceptional lens with a ridiculously wide aperture that gives you creamy background blur to enhance any portrait. It’s a perfect choice for shooting indoors, portrait and at night.
For APS-c sized sensors the rumored XF 33mm f/1.0 offers a standard (exact) 50mm equivalent focal length with a very fast aperture of f/1.0.
Stay tuned for more information.
