Fuji Japan announces the new X100s and X20 release info.

Fuji Japan (translation here) announced that they delayed the official X100s and X20 camera release from February 16th to  February 23th. Not really a big delay. It’s is interesting to hear that Fuji said that the cause fo the delay is the unexpected high demand for both cameras. Good news for Fuji :)

Fuji X100s preorder search links at Amazon, Adorama, B&H, eBay.
Fuji X20 preorder search links at Amazon, Adorama, B&H, eBay.

And by the way, if yous till care about the “older” Fuji X100 you can grab it for $842.07 at BigValue (Click here).

(UPDATE) Fake firmware updates…

UPDATE: A couple of FR readers sent me the link to DChome where some user claimed to have published the new Fuji FW update files. I am writing this because you should NOT download this files and NOT install them. The real fw update will come soon don’t worry. But before you make some mistakes I thought it would be good to warn you :)  Thanks Rico P. for the warning :)

As a reminder: These are the new features coming with the fw update:

Fujifilm X-Pro1 – firmware version: 2.03 Changes:
* Allows compatibility with the new “XF14mmF2.8R” lens.
* Improved performance of Auto Focus under various shooting conditions.

Fujifilm X-E1 – firmware version: 1.04 Changes:
* Allows compatibility with the new “XF14mmF2.8R” lens.
* Shutter release button now works when an external remote release is connected.
* Improved performance of Auto Focus under various shooting conditions.
* Audio performance has been optimised for the new Stereo Microphone MIC-ST1 (sold separately).

FUJINON XF35mm – firmware version: 2.02 Change:
* Improved accuracy of Auto Focus performance.

Fuji announces the F900EXR and FinePix S4800 cameras.

Fuji just announced two new compact cameras. The FinePix S4800 superzoom with 30x zoom lens (Press text at Dpreview) and the WiFi-enabled F900EXR with EXR-CMOS II (Press text at DPreview).

Not really a big news and honestly also other companies didn’t announce exciting cameras for the coming CP+ show in Japan (starting tomorrow). Rumors say that major company announcements will come in April only but I don’t think Fuji will announce a new X camera by than (Sony-Panasonic-Olympus-Samsung will). Although, I would be happy to see a new X-PRO2 with new EVF, faster AF and why not, a new generation X Trans sensor….I know I have to stop dreaming :)

Just comment this post and add the lens you would love to see (and buy) from Fuji. I will collect your suggestions and create a POLL to see what kind of lens Fuji should make as soon as possible.
