Fujifilm has patented three new lenses, the Fujinon XF 28mm f/1.0, Fujinon XF 32mm f/1.0 and Fujinon FX 35mm f/1.0. That’s three lenses with big wide apertures for ultra-low-light shooting and a shallow depth of field that a lot of Fuji shooters would love to get mounted to their cameras. The patent explains that there has been a demand in recent years for lenses with wider apertures as well as the issues with creating them.
Fuji does already have the Fuji XF 50mm f/1.0 R WR lens, so it’s not completely out of the realm of possibility that they’re planning to expand their f/1.0 lineup and one of these might also come to fruition. But I think it’s more likely that these might simply have been registered for the sake of owning the intellectual property and they’re probably not planning to release any of them.
