ThePhoBlographer reports that Fuji USA said that the X100 is not set as discontinued. Anyway, I am pretty sure the X200 is coming soon
Hi John, seems like Fujifilm wants to keep the X100 along with rumored X200. The main difference may be in a focal length – 50mm (135 format equiv.) with slightly faster f1.8-f1.7 aperture. By doing this Fujifilm can place two cameras in the market without rivaling/replacing each other. The fact is that Leica users most often have 35mm and 50mm lenses and Fujifilm surely knows it.
Yeah I don’t think you’ll see any major changes physically if only because the X100 was so successful. I think they plan to build off the current frame and add more megapixels and faster AF.
Perhaps the X100 just gets only a minor update, like (very) small body changes, new sensor,.. but the overall look and feel keeps the same.
It’s going to be discontinued I work at a Camera store and we have nomore stock coming into the stores in the near future.
Good sign that it will be discontinued
Well of course they would say that! It would be impossible to shift existing x100 stock without a huge discount if they said otherwise.
