Is this the new entry level X system camera body?

The Swedish website Cyberphoto (google translation here) claims that the cameras hold by that smiling Fuji rep is a new model that Fuji will announce this summer: “unfortunately, we can not say whether it is compact or SLR. What we can say is that no current model is changed without Fujifilm expands its range. More information will come.

The camera has been smeared out and you can’t see anything else than the size…I would say X20 alike size. This camera smells a lot like the rumored Fuji X entry level system body :)

Lens Turbo (focal reducer) to come for Fuji.

We got in contact with the Chinese company that just launched the new “Lens Turbo” adapter which is a focal reducer as the Speed Booster adapter but with a different design. They told us that nine new adapters will be launched this year:

PK, AI, EF, FD, MD, C/Y, Leica R, and M42 to Fuji X mount.

The image on top shows you their first adapter made for the NEX system. The company that makes the lens also makes the Mitakon 35mm 0.95 for X-mount (you can find them here on eBay).

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.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.

cheers
