Fuji Working on 400MP Pixel-Shift Mode for GFX 100, Teases 50mm f/1.0

Fuji didn’t reveal much about the upcoming feature. The engineers brought it up as part of a discussion of pixel pitch, explaining how Fuji was working on “Sub-μm order control” of pixel pitch in order enable 400MP pixel shift photography using the 100MP GFX100.

In addition to the 400MP mode, Fuji also gave us an update on the much-anticipated XF 50mm f/1.0.

This lens was originally supposed to be a 33mm f/1.0, but the first design mockups revealed that it would simply be too big. Still, even at 50mm, this will be the so-called “the world’s fastest lens with AF,” and today we got our first peek at the design:
