In time-honored tradition of modern-day product launches, Fujifilm's X-Summit ended with a "one last thing" after the main event of introducing the 40MP X-H2, the GF20-35mm, and the second-generation XF56mm f/1.2.

The 'one last thing' at the New York X-Summit turned out actually to be two new products - a pair of tilt-shit lenses for the GFX system - which were brought on stage at the end of the presentation. Last year, Fujfilm added the promise of a tilt-shit lens to its GF roadmap - but didn't give us the focal length or maximum aperture. The only thing we were told was that this perspective-control lens would be introduced in 2023.
