I’ve already told you about it last month with this rumor: the EF-X500 Flash will be delayed… again!
Sure, it was not just Fuji’s fault. For example, nobody could have predicted the Metz insolvency (who should have produced the Fujifilm branded flash). But for one reason or another, we waited and waited… and it never came.
But back at the X-Pro2 launch in January, Fujifilm was sure: the EF-X500 will hit the market in May 2016.
Well, something went wrong… again… and Fuji just officially said the release has been pushed back again to September 2016. Here is the google translated press release.
