I got this information via rumor box, so take it with a grain of salt:

“Fuji will be running a US rebate on most cameras and lenses beginning this month. X-E1 for $599. 27mm for $250 off. 55-200mm for $200 off. + lots more!”

In fact, several X-bodies are already in offer, just check the list below… (there is also a very hot deal on the X100S which will expire tomorrow, via digitalrev!)

For those who switched to the X-series by purchasing the X-T1, a good chance to get a lot of lenses for a good price… if this rumor turns out to be true! We will soon see.

stay tuned, I’ll inform you as soon as they are available!

Adobe: improved X-Trans support soon (film simulation support)!

 photo adobe_zps025c6281.jpg

Something is moving at Adobe (click here)…. it’s whispered that the company will soon improve the support for the X-Trans RAF files. What I know about it until now is this:

I’ve been told that, with the next update, Adobe Lightroom and Camera Raw will support Fuji’s Film Simulations. So you can finally put the Fuji X-Trans RAF’s in Lightroom and the software will be able to reproduce faithfully the various Film Simulations mode (Provia – Velvia – Astia – ProNeg Hi – ProNeg. Std – B&W Monochrome +Ye+R+G).

It will be compatible with every X-cameras, including the X-T1!

P.S.: But that’s not the only good news I’d like to spread today. Canadian readers who purchase the X-T1 until March 31 will get the vertical grip for free. Check it out.

First of all, be sure to check out Rico’s first look at the X-T1 here. You’ll hardly find a better initial report on the X-T1 on the world wide web. Done? So go on reading now.

Over at the Japanese site dc-watch (translation) you can see some mock-ups of the upcoming weather sealed lenses: the 16-55 f/2.8, 50-140 f/2.8 and 18-135 f/3.5-5.6.

And here are the mock-ups of the weather sealed trinity :-)

Last Second Rumors: XF 16-55 and 50-140 will be weather sealed too!

 photo 1743145_10201338659763630_2051566384_n_zpsb4f51697.png

I just came back from my work, when FR-source drphotorumor shared this information with me. As to expect, other lenses shown in the new roadmap will be weather sealed too:  the 16-55mm f/2.8 and 50-140 f/2.8!

In the meantime also digicame-info is working restlessly. Over at his website (click here) he just announced some prices for the grips (in Yen, obviously). All in all, I’d expect the vertical grip to cost between $/€ 200 – $/€ 250.

  • Estimated retail price of the vertical position battery grip VG-XT1 of X-T1 for about 25,000 yen.
  • Estimated retail price of the hand grip MHG-XT of X-T1 for about 13,000 yen.

My friends, it’s coming, and I hope my students will aplogize me, when tomorrow I’ll go at work just a “little bit” tired. I’m ready with coffee and some good music in the background…. and a lot of excitement!

You’ll have to manage your impatience just for a few more hours. Soon everything will be real!

And you should not miss today’s X-pert corner first look at the 56mm here.
