P.S.: I’ve been told by an anonymous FR-reader that Adorama is shipping the XF23mm lens.

Fuji’s FF roadmap: FF-compact camera second half of 2014 + FF-MILC late 2014 / early 2015?

The number of hints is growing: Fuji could go FF… and 2014 could be the year. According to a new source the company will launch a Full Frame Compact Camera (X200?) in the second half of 2014.

But the fixed lens FF could only be the beginning. Always according to this new source, there will be also FF X-series cameras with interchangeable lenses, coming late 2014 early 2015.

You know it, take it with a grain of salt. It’s the first time that this source whispered some rumors to me.

New X-series camera at the CES (positioned between X-E and X-PRO line)?

According to several sources (new and anonymous sources) Fuji will launch a new X-series camera with interchangeable lenses at the CES (January 2014). The camera will be positioned between the X-E line and the X-Pro line.

An anonymous source told me also that this camera will not feature the hybrid VF of the X-PRO1 / X100S.

I hope I’ll be able to post an update about this camera in near future… I have a week holidays from my day job, so I’ll concentrate on the rumors here on Fujirumors ;). But for now, take everything with a grain of salt.

stay tuned for more via google+, facebook and twitter.

X-roadmap 2014/2015: Weather sealed lenses and Full Frame X?

1) Xjrumo said that he has been told by trusted sources that the X200 FF (see here) will come 2014. Personally I trust him, as he was right in the past when he shared rumors of his trusted sources.

2) You may already know that Sony produces the APS-C sensors for the Fuji cameras (and other brands). I’ve dropped an email to Andrea from sonyalpharumors and he told me some interesting things. Here is how it goes: once Sony implemented a new sensor in one of their cameras, other companies have to wait at least 6 months before they have the permission to use it in their own cameras. This means that if Fuji wants to use the brand new FF sensor of the the A7r  or A7 they’d have to wait at least until mid April (maybe right in time for my birthday :)). On the other hand they could already use the “older” FF sensor of the RX1 and launch an X200 earlier. But it seems that Fuji decided to wait and launch the FF Fuji by the end of 2014, ealry 2015.

3) There will be new roadmap that includes weather sealed lenses and also f/2.8 constant aperture mid-range zoom lens. The lens roadmap should be updated early 2014. (src-Al Valentino at dpreview)

4) Everything has to be confirmed by trusted sources.

Did Fuji stop the production of the X-PRO1?

Hi,

I tell you, Fuji is doing a great job in keeping this secret. But I thought it’s time for an update to what belongs the X-PRO2. Here is what I can share with you for now:

Some FR-readers hunting for the X-PRO1 in stores all over the world told me that they were not able to find it because they were told by the stores that Fuji is going to replace it with the X-PRO2 next year.

If true, the aim of the stores now is to empty the X-PRO1-stock as soon as possible before the replacement hits the market in 2014. So I wouldn’t be surprised if we see some price drops on the X-PRO1 in near future.

But the big questions are: 1) When it will be announced and 2) what are the specs of the X-PRO2?

This is the complicated part of the rumor. The feedback from new / anonymous sources to what concerns the specs and release date is very different. So I’m right now trying to triple check everything with my trusted sources.

Therefore, take everything with a grain of salt until I get some reliable information from trusted sources.

I’m tirelessly working on the specs and the release date. Any help to dig up the truth would be appreciated. You can share rumors via email at fujirumor@gmail.com or anonymously via rumor box.
