BHphoto expects to have the X-A1 in stock almost one month earlier than all the other stores. According to their website they will have it in stock on October 3rd, while AmazonUS expects it for October 30th. At the moment there are two colours available, the classic black and the indigo blue.
There is already a first note of AmazonUS saying that “due to high demand we anticipate being unable to fulfill all customer orders with our first allocation. Product supply from Fujifilm is very limited. Your place in line will be maintained, and we will not charge your credit card until we ship the product.”
So, if you never fell in love with the X-Trans sensor, but liked the vintage look of the Fuji X-series, here is where you can pre-order the most affordable of all MILC X-series cameras!
