GFX Medium Format:

GF 20-35mm (16-28mm FF equiv.) lens - finally the outstanding GFX system gets the wide angle zoom that landscape photographers have been clamoring for for years!

GF 30mm and GF 110mm tilt shift lens mock-ups were also shown - Fuji has already announced previously that T/S lenses are on the horizon.

X APSC format:

XH2 - 40MP in an APSC sensor capable of shooting at 20FPS with electronic shutter and 15FPS with mechanical shutter - looks like APS-C may not be dead for bird photographers if the AF is on par with the likes of Sony.  Paired with the excellent 150-600 lens one would get the field of view equivalence of 225-900mm with plenty of cropability

56mm f/1.2 - a superfast portrait lens with approximate 85mm full frame equivalent coverage and f/1.8 full frame DOF

The X-H2S being the high-speed option and the X-H2 being the high resolution one, it's clear that the former maybe a better choice for sports/BIF photographers.

Maybe but at 15/20FPS and the higher resolution, as long as the AF is there, I might prefer that as you have much greater cropability and the ability to print much bigger.  It's the same reason a lot of bird photographers in the Nikon world preferred the D850 over the D5/6...

The 20-35 is definitely great news! I pre-ordered one the other day @ B&H, now I have to sell my 23mm. Can't wait til they start shipping it.
