    Fuji doesn’t currently have five lenses. It has announced five lenses, of which only three have shipped (though two more about to ship).

    • Mistral75

      The Fujinon GF 23mm f/4 R LM WR and Fujinon GF 110mm f/2 R LM WR are available for purchase in French stores.

      Except for the Macro, I already have the other 4.

      • El Aura

        Well, they were supposed to ship in June/July.

  • Originaru

      Not exactly.

      Fujifilm digital medium format: 4 months (commercial launch = end of February), 5 lenses, 1 planned with exact specifications, 1 planned without specifications, 5 more rumoured lenses.

      Ricoh Imaging (Pentax) digital medium format: 7 years (645D announced in March 2010), 12 lenses from the film era (still produced), 5 from the digital era, 2 planned without specifications.

        You obviously did not read what I wrote. I wrote 5 years, not since the beginning of the 645D, for which new lenses were designed by Pentax before and under Hoya. Those lenses were delivered then, and then during the Ricoh Imaging time. Ricoh Imaging released just one new design, then retracted one lens, and put two on the roadmap with unknown specs. That is all. Ricoh Imaging investment in Medium Format was minimal, if any, because even the 645D was designed and invested into before them, and 645Z heavily based on it.

        • Mistral75

          You know what? Something was missing from your earlier statement: the reader’s manual. Thank you for providing it concerning the Ricoh part.

          • ZMWT

            All major investment in digital 645 was done by Pentax and Hoya, including camera and new lenses. All major investment in Pentax Q was done by Pentax and Hoya, including camera and lenses. All major investment in building a lineup of Pentax crop lenses was done by Pentax and Hoya.
            Ricoh bought Pentax because someone did some hard work BEFORE them.

    Fujifilm is going to be dominating medium format

    • I agree, you get a lot for what you are paying.

    • Mike

      80 1.4 on MF, is sort of blowing my mind right now. In FF equivelency that’s less DOF than f/1.0. Someone do the math for us please. 🙂

      • Mistral75

        63mm f/1.1.

        • Mike

          Thanks! *drool*

        • Sean

          But like… who was clamoring for a new 63mm lens? That’s the strangest choice for them to make.

          • Mistral75

            Those who are already using, or have used, a wide-aperture 58mm on a 24×36 camera?

            Remember, it’s only a rumour at this stage, not an official roadmap.

          • Sean

            Yeah, I suppose that’s fair. Just odd. Like, the entire fine art wedding world is DYING to get something digital that replicates the Contax 645 with the Zeiss 80mm f2, and this was almost it. It just seems more like a lens for the sake of marketing more than for actual photography. Like, make a fast 35mm equivalent and a fast 50mm equivalent before you go exotic, haha. But honestly they probably know more about that market than I do. I just want a digital Contax 645, haha.

        • Vladislav Kuznetsov

          65mm f / 1.16, unless you not crop that 4:3 photos.

  • JoCarpenter

    Tilt shift? You got my attention!

  • Sean

    I was excited for the 80mm 1.4, until I realized that this is not a classic 645 sensor size, so that’s like a 62mm lens?! Who uses a 62mm lens?! Close but not cigar, Fuji.

    • Originaru

      Yeah, forgot about that too, still, great, anyway almost a 58.

    • harvey

      and yet people are using the Contax 80/2 with great results.

      • Sean

        Yeah, the 80mm f2 is a great lens, for sure. The problem is that on a 645 film negative, an 80mm is the “normal” view — a 50mm equivalent. But on the digital sensor, which is smaller than a 645, it’s more like a 62mm, so it’s a bit tighter and a bit less useful. :-/

        • harvey

          people are using the 80 for its aperture and OOF rendition. 50mp gives you ability to crop.

  • Neopulse

    Thought there would have been info on leaf shutter lenses.
