The New Kits: Fujifilm X-T5 and X-S20 with XF16-50mmF2.8-4.8

I know, lots of stuff has been announced today.

However, Fujifilm also introduced new kit options for the new Fujinon XF16-50mmF2.8-4.8. Here they are:

Pre-Order Now

LEAKED: Fujifilm X-T5 and X-S20 Kit Price with XF16-50mmF2.8-4.8 and GFX100SII plus GF500mm Price Confirmed

We told you already in September 2023 from a stunning Dolomite mountain peak, that the glorious Fujinon XF18-55mm f/2.8-4 would be replace by a new kit lens, the Fujinon XF16-50mmF2.8-4.8.

This means it will come not only bundled with the new Fujifilm X-T50, but also with other Fujifilm cameras such as the Fujifilm X-T5 and the Fujifilm X-S20.

And today (THANKS!!!) we can also tell you the price of the bundles as well as confirming the pricing we shared earlier.

  • X-T50 body only = €1,499
  • XF 16-50mmF2.8-4.8 = €799
  • X-T50 + XF16-50 = €1,899
  • X-T50 + XC15-45 = €1,599
  • X-T5 + XF16-50 = €2,399
    X-T5 body only = €1,999
  • X-S20 + XF16-50 = €1,799
    X-S20 body only = €1,399
  • GFX100S II = $4,999 / €5,499
  • GF500mmF5.6 = €3,899

So overall you get the lens for €400 if you buy it bundled with a camera body. The XF16-50mmF2.8-4.8 alone will cost €800.


Major Firmware Update for X-T5, X-H2, X-S20 and X100VI – New Features Guide Released and Where is Reala Ace?

Fujifilm has just released major firmware updates for the Fujifilm X-T5, X-H2, X-S20 and X100VI.

As usual, there were many disappointed that REALA ACE is not part of the update. I try to reply them all in the various posts I made on social media, but I thought at this point it is best to highlight it again in this article, in the hope the message comes through this time.

Fujifilm promised two major firmware updates: one coming in spring and one in summer. And it’s the one in summer that will bring Reala Ace to other 5th generation cameras.

What will come and when dedicated article here.

So, I hope this helps to mitigate the disappointment that Reala Ace did not come this time around. ;)

Nonetheless, what we got today is already a significant update, so much so that for all the cameras mentioned above (except for X-S20), Fujifilm has released new features guide so that you can learn how to properly use the new features

Fujifilm Keeps Struggling: X-S20 and X100VI Orders Stopped (Again) in Japan and More Manufacturing Struggles (Instax Wide 300 included)

Fujifilm keeps struggling with the manufacturing of their gear… over and over again.

Just in February, orders for the Fujifilm X-S20 resumed in Japan after an extended period of unavailability. However, recent reports indicate that the camera is once again not available for order.

Also the Fujifilm X100VI is experiencing order suspensions in Japanese stores, despite only recently becoming available for purchase on March 28th.

And this is just the top of the iceberg.

The Fujifilm X-T5 was unavailable for many months in Japan.

Cameras like the Fujifilm X-E4 have been unavailable for most of the time, which makes me wonder why Fujifilm even bothered launching it considering that they discontinued the X-E4 before even being able to ship out lots of units that people actually had on order. The only ones happy with this situation are those who are reselling it at a higher price than its original MSRP.

Lots of lenses also suffered the same shortage (and still do), such as the lovely XF27mmF2.8 R WR and the versatile XF70-300mmF4-5.6.

Also Instax suffers, with Fujifilm announcing the suspension of orders for the INSTAX WIDE 300 in Japan.

Look, not all companies get all things right all the time. And Fujifilm has done (and is doing) its errors too.

But arguably the biggest error that they have done in the last 4 years is not being able to figure out how to ramp up production and make sure to actually be able to deliver products that people order.

Sure, Fujifilm has looked into solution, but they were all insufficient.

Dear Fujifilm: there is no “cheap” solution like Blockchain or whatever. If you want to sell more, you need bigger production capability and more workers. That’s it.
