First samples taken with the X100T uploaded by David Hobby, but quickly removed

 photo X10T_zpsfe4715a6.png

FR-reader Luke stumbled on this interesting dpreview thread. The screenshot can found at reddit.com.

Apparently, David Hobby uploaded a set of sample images from the X100T to his Flickr account by mistake. The images have since been removed, as he broke his NDA (non-disclosure agreement) by publishing them.

The name is nothing new for FR-readers. I told you over a month ago that X100T could be the name of the X100S successor. The focal lenght remains 23 (APS-C, according to mirrorlessrumors).

(TS= trusted source / NeS =New Source / AS = Anonymous Source / SRP = source who was right in the past, but not yet trusted)

  • X100T (TS + NeS + leaked by X-photographer David Hobby)
  • 24MP X-Trans sensor (NeS)
  • APS-C (ORS)
  • faster AF than X100S (NeS)
  • tilt screen (NeS)
  • new fixed lens (NeS)
  • 23mm (leaked by X-photographer David Hobby)
  • new EVF, better than X100S, but not as much as X-T1 (NeS)
  • wider phase detection area (NeS)

The 18-135 is coming. It’s already available in Asia, in some stores in Europe and expected to come in USA by the end of this month.

In the meantime, X-guru Rico was in Berlin with a production version of the first weather resistant lens of Fujifilm and he shared some full size samples on his Flickr here. All the night shots were taken handheld using the 5 stop OIS at shutter speeds between 1/4s and 1/15s…. impressive results! You can leave your tripod at home now ;-).

Fujifilm X30 with 2/3-inch sensor (trusted Japanese source)

 photo 23_zps28604b85.jpg

I know, other rumor sites reported rumors of an X30 with a 1“ sensor (or bigger). But according to our top trusted Japanese source, that’s not correct. The sensor will remain a 2/3 one. I have no reason to doubt what the trusted Japanese source told me.

Let’s start it again, the rumored specs list:

(TS= trusted source / NeS =New Source / AS = Anonymous Source / SRP = source who was right in the past, but not yet trusted / ORS = other rumor sites)

  • 2/3 sensor (TS)
  • announcement at photokina (ORS)

Reminder: the rumor of a release on July 3rd was spread by a forum member of dpreview. FR just reported about it.

well Robert, I’m working on it ;-)

If you can help me to find out more, feel free to contact me completely anonymously via rumor box (and maybe give yourself a nick-name, so that I can eventually identify you in future if you decide to share some more rumors) or drop me an email at fujirumor [at] gmail.com.

The X-T1 with the new weather resistant lens XF 18-135 will cost €1699 in Europe, which makes it €100 more expensive than the X-T1+18-55 kit. That’s at least the price at fotohanskeuzekamp (Netherland). This store also has some 18-135 in stock already
