Fujifilm X-PRO2 coming “late 2015“ (top trusted Japanese source)

Forget the grain of salt this time ;).

The X-PRO2 release date enigma has come to an end. The top trusted Japanese source just replied to my email. I asked the source when the X-PRO2 is likely to come, and the source said “X-Pro2 late 2015”.

I remind you that rumors say Fuji is waiting for a brand new sensor to be ready and this is the reason for the long waiting time.

Another remider: The X-A2 and the XQ2 are coming soon. The cheaper X-T1 sometimes this year (according to a source who was right in the past). So after a pretty hefty rumor start in this week, I thought it could be a good idea to make a little overview for you all.

X-camera 2015 roadmap

Coming soon:

– Fujifilm X-A2 with second generation of XC lenses
– Fujifilm XQ2

Coming in 2015

– cheaper X-T1 alike camera

Coming late 2015

Fujifilm X-A2 is coming too… with second generation of XC lenses (OIS II)!

You know I keep saying that there will be two X-series cameras soon, a fixed lens one and a MILC.

The fixed lens one will the the XQ2.

… and the Fujifilm X-A2 is coming too. The information has just now been leaked by digicame-info, who also says that there will be an upgrade to the XC 16-50 and XC 50-230 (OIS II).

So what about the cheaper X-T1?

Here is a clarification I need to make, please read carefully.

While I was working to find out which camera the mysterious entry level MILC would be, I’ve received the rumor about the cheaper X-T1. And, although the source said it will come “this year”, I thought that this is finally the camera we were looking for, and I suggested that it could come early 2015.

But I have to be 100% unequivocal when I quote sources, and in fact the “cheaper X-T1” source never said it will come “early 2015” but just “this year”. Now the quote of the source is 100% clear!

So the state of the rumors is:


  • XQ2

  • X-A2

THIS YEAR (2015)

  • Cheaper X-T1

[UDPATE] RUMOR: The mysterious new entry-level? A cheaper version of the Fujfilm X-T1 (source was right in the past)

[MESSAGE TO THIS SOURCE: I could be great if you contact me also via email (if you want, use a fake email address), so that we can talk directly to each other.]

[UDPATE: The source said it will come in 2015, whitout specifing any date. My guess was it will come in early 2015. Read here for the udpated article]

Who follows FR regularly will already know that Fujifilm has (according to FR-rumors) two new X-cameras in the pipeline for the next few months: a fixed lens one and an entry level MILC. Now, the fixed lens one could be the XQ2, the successor of the smallest X-series camera on the market.

And what about the MILC?

Well, according to an anonymous source with “nick name”, who was right in the past, it will be a cheaper version of Fujifilm’s best selling X-series camera, the Fujifilm X-T1.

Please keep in mind that, although I try to be as accurate as possible (83% correct rumors in 2014), you should take rumors that do not come from trusted sources, with a grain of salt… including this one.

So what, would this be a smart move or not? I’m really curious to read what you think about it in the comments.

“Fujifilm XQ2” name registered at the Chinese MIIT

Do you remember the rumor shared last year, which said that there will be 3 non-interchangeable lenses by the end of this winter? The X100T and X30 arrived… but there was still one missing. Well, apparently the third one in the bunch will be the Fujifilm XQ2. The name has been registered at the Chinese MIIT (Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of the People’s Republic of China)

The XQ1 was a BIG flop. So tell us in the comments, how should the Fujifilm XQ2 look like to guarantee its success?

P.S.: I remind you that, according to my sources, there will be one more MILC entry level camera soon, too.
