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

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!).

Fuji’s double kit offer to come? (X-E1 + 18-55 + 55-200)

Do you remember the crazy X-superkit deals here? You missed them? Don’t worry. I’ve the feeling that we could enjoy them again in future ;). This time the 2 lenses in offer should be the XF 18-55mm and XF 55-200mm. So, if you plan to switch to the Fuji X-series, this could be an interesting deal: buy both XF-zoom lenses and you’ll grab the X-E1 for a significantly reduced price.

I don’t know the price and when the zoom lenses kit deal will exactly be launched, but I’m looking forward to it. Lemme see if I can tell you more about it soon.


Zeiss lenses to be announced on May 7th.

SAR reports that Zeiss will announce their new Prime lenses for Sony NEX and Fuji X system on Tuesday, May 7th. The final price is still unknown although many expect it to be somewhere between $1,000 and $1,200. The first two lenses to ship in June will be the 12mm f/2.8 and the 32mm f/1.8 lens. The 50mm f/2.8 macro will ship in late 2013. All lenses have electronic Aperture and Autofocus control.

Rumor Update: 2/3 inch sensor not for X-entry level camera (X-S2 according to an anonymous source)

digicame-info wrote me an email. They told me that the 2/3 inch X-TRANS sensor camera is not the X-entry level camera rumored before, but another product [UPDATE: 2/3 inch sensor mirrorless camera].

Now, this let’s me think about a rumor I’ve received a few days ago, anonymously via rumor box. A single line: “X-S2 with x20 tech over 1 month“. Just this, nothing more. I wanted to check it, before I post it, but now, with digicame-info saying that a new camera with a 2/3 inch sensor is about to be released this summer, I thought it’s time to post it… let’s put the pieces of this rumor puzzle together.

I hope I can bring some order in these rumor days soon. But, the good news is, that there are still some more Fuji-cameras to come next.

Have a good start in this new week

Tiny 2/3 inch sensor for the large X-mount. A waste of space?

[UPDATE]: Please read the updated post here.

Latest rumors floating around the web do say that Fuji will release a 2/3 inch sensor and X-mount entry level camera in July. While it seems pretty sure that a entry level camera is coming I am not sure that the 2/3 inch sensor digicame-info rumor is correct. But if it is then I don’t get it why a super small 2/3 inch sensor should be used within the much larger X-mount. As you see from the image on top there is an incredible “waste of space”. I would rather make a new mount for that to reduce the mount and the overall camera size.

As I said, we talk about rumors and not about facts. But I want to hear from you guys if there is something I am missing here…
