FR-reader Roger just told me that AmazonUS finally takes pre-orders here (XF 55-200). He said that “there appears to be no order activity yet as there is no sales rank posted. If this is correct, one could order now and be high on list.” UK-readers can preorder here at AmazonUK (“this item is due to be released on June 14, 2013“)

Preoder the 55-200: BHphoto / Adorama / AmazonUS / AmazonUK / DigitalRev / PCHstore Brussel

BHphoto estimates that the new Zeiss lenses will ship in 6-8 weeks. So they should be in stock in late June / beginning of July.

It will come! Trusted sources confirm launch of Fuji entry level interchangeable lens camera

Now we know: it will come! According to trusted sources, Fuji is about to launch an entry level interchangeable lens camera this summer. It should be smaller than the X-E1 with less control buttons or dials… and no viewfinder. I’m working to find out more. Is there someone out there that could make my work easier? I’m all ears ;)

A new source told me here that the price (body+lens) should be of $550 and launched in July (not confirmed until now from trusted sources).

That’s all for now
Patrick

P.S.: You’re not interested in entry level cameras? Then check out this new X-PRO1 body for $ 1,049 at ebayUS here (4 available).

P.P.S.: The X100S is now in stock on AmazonUS (via third party reseller) for normal price here (only 2 left!).
