X-E2 coming before X-PRO2? (new source)

I’ve received a rumor from a new source who told me that he already had the opportunity to see a working Fuji X-E2. If the new source is right, it could mean that Fuji is stepping on the gas and is planning to release the X-E2 earlier than expected.

Now, if it is true that Fuji is already testing the X-E2, then maybe it could be announced late 2013 / early 2014. But I’m working on reliable release dates (and specs) right now.

Well, it seems that we could see the X-E2 before the X-PRO2!

But please be careful with this information. Keep in mind that it does not come from trusted sources. It’s the first time I’ve received a rumor from this source and I can’t confirm it. So take it cum grano salis. I’m working with my trusted sources to check this rumor and will post an update once I have some news for you.

If there is somebody out there who could give me some more information about Fuji’s future cameras/lenses, do not hesitate to contact me via email at fujirumor@gmail.com or by using the rumor box to share your information absolutely anonymously. Feel free to contact me.

X-A1

Hi again! I don’t think the X-A1 press release was supposed to be published already now, but well, the Czech site fotoskoda just posted it here (translation) together with the XF 23mm announcement. Yep, the blue X-A1 (I still have to get used to it) leaked by Fujirumors here wasn’t a fake image. This camera will be the cheapest of the X-series. [UPDATE: The Czech site disabled the link of the leaked X-A1 press release… but luckily it’s all copied on Fujirumors :)]

all the best

it will come :)

To all those guys who waited until late August for the X100 firmware and wrote me on facebook, twitter and via email at fujirumor@gmail.com that they have lost their hope in the X100 super-firmware. I tell you, it will come! The firmware was planed to be released earlier (a new source said late August), but apparently Fuji needs a bit more time to make it work perfectly (it won’t come tomorrow… but it won’t take long anymore).

The 130,000 X100 owners will get…

– focus peaking

– 20% faster autofocus

– better start-up time

… and much more!

Now share this rumor with all the X100 owners via facebook and twitter!

 Live-blogging tomorrow at about 6-7 AM London time

The XF 23mm is ready to be unveiled officially by Fuji. Hands-on reviews, press releases and pre-order links can be found all at Fujirumors tomorrow at about 6-7 AM London time. I’ll continuously update the post so that you do not miss anything. And follow FR via facebook, twitter and RSS feed.

stay tuned for more

XF 23mm announcement tomorrow (September 5), shipped in October and price should be of 929€

 photo fuji_xf23_f14_01_zps258e0e38.jpg

A source just told me that the new (and long expected) XF 23mm will be released tomorrow, September 5. I don’t know at what time exactly until now, but the price should be around €929. So it seems that this lens could cost, at least in Europe, a bit more than the XF 14mm.

As soon as I know the price in dollar, I’ll let you know.

Follow FR tomorrow via facebook, twitter and RSS feed, I’ll give all the rumors, hands-on reviews and informations about this lens and also tell you when the stores are taking pre-orders in a special live-stream post. I hope this time Fuji will ship it faster than the XF 55-200 and X100S.

cheers
