It looks like Fuji fans won’t have long to wait for a replacement for their two-and-a-half-year-old X-T4. It looks like they’re going to be announcing the X-T5 on November 2nd if the rumours are correct. And it looks like most of the specs have leaked out already, too. According to several posts on Fuji Rumors, the new X-T5 will cost around $1,699 and contain the same 40-megapixel sensor of the Fujifilm X-H2.
It looks like the new Fujifilm X-T5 will be officially announced on November 2nd, as Fujifilm has scheduled a live X Summit Tokyo 2022 event for that date on YouTube. November 2nd at 1pm GMT (8am Eastern and 5am Pacific, for those in the US). While no official specs have been released yet – or even mention of an X-T5 – there have obviously been rumours.
The 40-megapixel sensor is said to be capable of shooting 160-megapixel pixel shift images as well as 6K 30fps video. It retains a few features of the X-T4, although it’s expected to be slightly smaller with dual SD Card slots (no CFexpress). It also sees some new features, too, like clickable front and rear dials. This is apparently to help minimise the chances of accidentally knocking the dial and adjusting your settings when you don’t want to.
There will apparently be no 26-megapixel stacked CMOS sensor version of the camera to be released. So, we won’t see a camera of this style with the X-2HS sensor, at least not as an X-T5 variant anyway. It will be available in Black and silver versions and cost around $1,700. Beyond that, we’ll have to wait for the official announcement expected on Wednesday.
It’s also said that we’ll see a new Fujifilm XF30mmF2.8 Macro lens announcement on the same day.
