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.

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

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

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.
