    I’m wondering how Fuji is going to price their upcoming products, especially the X100s and the XF 23mm F1.4 lens… The X100 was $1200 at introduction as far as I remember and I don’t hink they will go much if any higher. I also think they need to price the 23mm lens way beneath it if they want to sell some. With the same sensor, a hybrid VF and just a one stop slower lens who would go for the lens only instead of a whole back-up camera?!

    After the 14mm I was thinking the 23mm lens would be more less in the same ballpark price-wise but now I regained hope. I can’t see it being as cheap/expensive as the 35mm but maybe Fuji gets it out under $750? And the 56mm as well, pretty please ;-)

    Hey Admin, do you have any info on when the new lenses will be introduced? Any chance it will happen already at CES?

      sry, but I have no info yet.

      • Mike

        Thanks Patrick. Looks like I will have to keep visiting your site daily for a little while longer ;-)

        Graet job, keep’em coming!

      I assume, you might be wrong with that.

      The reason a company changes the name of a products successor to X100S instead X200 is to increase its price.

      So the buyer will psychologically argue that the S is a better ([S]pecial) Version of the old one, and therefore, a higher introduction price of (lets say 1500$-1600$) might be justified.

      I fear the worst.

      • Mike

        I think $1500-$1600 would be a bad move, as it puts the X100s price wise above both the the X-E1 kit and X-Pro1 body. One may of course argue that these are three very different cameras and the X100 is a niche product for ‘true passionates’ but this doesn’t change the fact, that Fuji needs to sell a couple (thousands) to get a worthwhile profit and that’s what the y probably want to do ;-)

        The pricing will be a though call for Fuji with three very different and yet very comparable products and I’m still hoping they will surprise us in a good way!

    Nice for the X100s and the X20. And what about the new XF lenses shedulled for the beginning of 2013 ??

  • duo

    I expect X-100s will be a very mildly updated X-100. 3 inch screen 920k dots. 16MP sensor from XPro. Slightly improved OVF. Better video. THat’s about it. Price should be around 1300. I dont think Fuji expects X-100s to have same success X-100 did, since now there is X mount cameras.

    X-20 on the other hand, may be very interesting. Hopefully they update VF big time, heck, please make it a OVF/EVF hybrid.

  • Anon

    Photo rumors is reporting that the X100S will have peaking!

    • Tom

      Yeah. I just read that on PR too. I hope they can bring this update to X-pro1. I really need that.

    • Peter

      Given the demand for that feature, it would be a major surprise (and mistake on Fuji’s part) if they didn’t offer focus peaking.

      The only real question is if there will be a final firmware update with peaking support for the old X100 (and other X series cameras) like the one the X-Pro1 received when the X-E1 was announced, but I highly doubt it since it would make it a lot tougher to sell the new model to existing X100 customers. If they do offer a peaking update for the X100, I’m going to be really impressed because literally no other company would do that.

      • Anon

        I hope they do too. Personally, the X-Trans sensor is way more enticing but I know a lot of people have been longing for a proper MF solution that includes peaking of some variety.

  • E

    Anyone think there Will be a physical redesign to the x100 body??

    • N

      Same question here – would love to see a thumb rest like on the pro 1/xe1 & button

    • MJr

      I think the X100s name is a strong clue that it will just be a technical upgrade. :)

    • Web

      I’m probably alone here but I wouldn’t mind the x100 successor to be smaller.

    • Anon

      Remember when Apple stuck an “s” label on the iPhone 4. I expect this is a similar upgrade – speed and IQ bump only. Too many people love the form of the X100 to mess w/success.

  • Ssky

    Any idea how much the prices on the regular x100 and x10 will drop after the introduction of the new ones?

    • nikopol

      its discontinued. So, what you expect.
