33mm F1 is now the 50mm F1
2

According to the Fuji Summit:

  • first mock-up, XF33mm f/1.0 customer said it is too big and heavy, but size was inevitable for corner to corner sharpness. You need lots of front glass to eliminate aberrations
  • the latest XF33mm f/1.0 has become even bigger. Will weight over 1.3 kg. Needs tripod mount.
  • to make it smaller, Fujifilm needed either to make it smaller, or to change focal length
  • Fujifilm decided to change from 33mm f/1.0 to 50mm f/1.0 to make the lens smaller (35% smaller and weight under 900 gram)
