These are the last Fuji-X-deals days. The amount of savings depends on how many XF lenses you bundle with the X-PRO1/X-E1 body. You can save for instance $1,150 if you buy the X-E1 with the 18-55 kit lens and then add the 4 primes. You’ll pay $2,645 (purchasing all this gear separately would normally cost you $3,795).
It seems that the (still unconfirmed) rumors about the X-E2 do not influence the sales of the X-E1. In the AmazonUS CSC ranking the camera is stable in the top 20 and right now 15th. As Mike said in the comments: “Wow, that’s a great deal. Worth buying now and putting those lenses away to use with the X-Pro 2 next year!”… and then sell your X-E1 or use it as a backup camera.
Also the X-A1 is in the top 20, but behind the X-M1.
X-A1 PRE-ORDERS XC 50-230
Fujifilm uploaded today its first full size samples at the global website here. You can also read fstoplounge’s experience with the X-A1 here: Among the others the reviewer says: “For a consumer priced camera the results were spectacular. I’ve used quite a number of cameras from different brands and I have to say I’ve never experienced such a sophisticated consumer level camera. The X-A1 was great to travel with due to the small size and I really do think this would be a fantastic camera for beginner, enthusiast and even professional photographer, like myself. You really do need to see the image quality for yourself, it’s that good.”
For a first look at the X-A1 you can check this X-pert corner special here.
XF 23mm (now also at AmazonUK)
Maybe it’s time for European FR-readers to go back to school! At least for those living in Germany, Austria, Netherlands and Italy! Fujifilm is on the road and is offering some interesting workshops in the next couple of months. Here they are:
Germany – Austria – Netherlands
The tour starts on September 20. Choose the date, the city and the workshop you’d like to participate (street, fashion, nature, night photography and much more), reserve your place and spend a couple of hours with professional photographers and the Fujifilm X-M1. The workshops costs €19,95, but you’ll receive your money back if you purchase a X-camera, save €35 on accessories, get an SD-card, a voucher and so on. Click here to know more about it (click on “teste mich” and then choose your city).
Fujifilm will also be present at the Castelnuovofotografia event on the 21 and 22 of September. You’ll meet two great photographers (Max Angeloni and Donato Chirulli) and have the opportunity to test all the X-series cameras and Fujinon lenses. The events are free and no reservation is required (but recommended). So, if you are in the area of Castel Nuovo di Porto (RM) on Saturday 21 September from 10:00 – 13:00 14.30 – 18:00 or Sunday 22 September 10.00 – 13.00 you could stop by the event! Read the whole program here at riflessifotografici. Let’s see if after Al Pacino in the last Fuji-tour (check this post here) the riflessifotografici-guys will be lucky enough to take photographs of another VIP!
have a nice day
