Recommended Posts

Hi,
New lens XF 50mm F1.0 R WR, "launch" late September 2020.
When it is possible to buy I have not a clue.
It has a rather hefty recommended price tag (that I have read info about from a Photo Magazine in my country).

- Large diameter mid telephoto prime lens.
- World's first Autofocus capable F1.0 interchangeable lens for mirrorless digital cameras.
Etc.

No, I have not. I just use this forum for Fujifilm info, it is enough for me, for info about my X-T4 camera and the lens I use. 
I will check out the link You provided, mdm.
This new lens is said to be good to use working in low light conditions. Maybe something for me since I'm often out in afternoon and evenings with my X-T4 when light conditions are not so good. I will read more about this lens to find out if it could be for me or not. My present (only) lens XF 16-80mm F4 R OIS WR is OK but in lower light conditions it is not so good I have noticed. With flash it is great but one can not always use that.
The XF 50mm F1.0 R WR has a weight of 845 gram, my XF 16-80mm F4 R OIS WR weight 440 gram.
No OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) in the lens on XF 50mm F1.0 R WR, but the X-T4 camera I have has OIS. So maybe that is enough and not so big disadvantage then to use a non OIS lens?

I've asked without irony or sarcasm, I've asked because Fujirumors is a kind of a "bible" for X-users, where we spend almost all our free time :) and this lens as well have been discussed for years and covered long before its anonsment.

OK, I see, I'm rather new to Fujifilm so I do not know so much about this brand and their products really. But so far I like my X-T4 but I had a "lemon" to start with but got a new from the reseller.
