X-E1 kit: in stock at AmazonUS for normal price + best seller list: Fuji gains ground

Amazon must have filled preorders, and now the X-E1 kit is in stock and sold directly by AmazonUS. The X-E1 is also reaching the 12. position in the amazon best seller list (for the silver kit version). That’s great! The X-PRO1 also entered the best seller list (17 position). But, judging from the sales at AmazonUS, people prefer the new X-E1 to the X-PRO1 with the $300 price drop for the body only.

[UPDATE: Fujifilm Announcement] Fujinon XF14mm expected for January 19

The Fujinon XF14mm lens, expected for December, will probably hit the market at January 19. The reason of this postponement? The very high sales of the new 18-55 zoom lens. Fuji gives priority to the production of the zoom lens (the kit lens). This are at least the latest news we got from dcwatch (click here for the translated version).

dphotojournal (click here) posted the features of this lens, and look at the video of the Fuji Guys posted yesterday on Fujirumors. Billy explains some specs on the 14mm lens.

Here is the official (translated) announcement of Fujifilm:

Dear customers

Thank you for your patronage bestowed patronage is Fujifilm products.

Well, it had been guided by the moon and the release date Heisei 24 ’12 Fujinon lens “XF14mmF2.8 R”, because it gives priority to the production of “XF18-55mmF2.8-4 R LM OIS” of strong sales I was going to let me put off on Saturday, January 19, 2013 Release Date.

We apologize for the inconvenience, thank you for your understanding as we look forward.

Price increase for the X-E1 kit through third part reseller at AmazonUS

Hi

As you can see from the image in the post of yesterday, the first X-E1 kits in stock at AmazonUS where through third part reseller for a normal price. Now the price has changed, and there is a price rise of $300! So the new price is $1600 (click here) for the kit. We still have to wait that Amazon fills preorders to see the X-E1 kit in stock directly at AmazonUS. So preorder or wait for the kit to be in stock to save $200 (check availability here).
