Fujifilm is claimed to be announced a new X100T successor camera in early 2017. It is rumored to be named as Fujifilm X100F.
Fuji will add a new member to the popular X100 series soon. A lot of peopled speculated that the Japanese company will launch a successor at Photokina 2016. It looks like there is a not much chance for this. On the other hand X100 lovers will not wait much.
Fujifilm X100T is the top X-series compact camera announced back in 2015. Now the successor model is in the talks as the new camera will not be named Fujifilm X200 as previously rumored. It will be called Fujifilm X100F.
Fujifilm X100F will be the X100T successor camera
According to recent rumors the name will be Fujifilm X100F. The premium compact camera will have an APS-C-sized image sensor. The “F” designation in the name is speculating to be the fourth model in the series.
The current Fujifilm X100 line consists of three models. The X100, X100S and X100T features the same Fujinon 23mm F2 fixed lens. The most anticipated feature is sure the focal length of the fixed-lens of the shooter. Fuji will continue the X100 saga with fixed focal lengths.
An earlier rumor said that the Fujifilm X100T replacement will feature a wider lens. However, this information is likely false because a highly-reliable insider is claiming that the device will have a 23mm lens, which will offer a full-frame equivalent of approximately 35mm.
The successor of the X100T was rumored to be announced at Photokina 2016. Fuji had to deal with a shortage of X-Trans III sensor because of Kumamoto earthquake in Japan. So they decided to first focus on the Fujifilm X-T2.
The Fujifilm X100T features a 16.3-megapixel X-Trans CMOS II sensor with on-chip phase detection, a 23mm (35mm equivalent) f/2 lens, a 3-inch 1.04-million-dot monitor, seven customisable function buttons, raw shooting capability and a top sensitivity setting of ISO 51,200. The shooter currently have a price tag of $1,299.
