Fujifilm has announced a trio of new lenses, including a fast XF 50mm f/1.0, as well as a new firmware update that adds pixel shift capability to the GFX100.

Revealed at its X Summit in London, the firmware update for the mirrorless medium format GFX100 will add the ability to create 400-megapixel images using new pixel shift technology.

XF50mm f/1.0

The headline lens announced at the X Summit is a new fast nifty fifty, the XF50mm f/1.0. Offering a 75mm equivalent fixed focal length, the XF50mm f/1.0 is weather resistant and offers a minimum aperture of f/16.

This lens is still in development. Fujifilm showed off a prototype at the event. The company says the lens will also deliver impressive bokeh.
