Hi again! I don’t think the X-A1 press release was supposed to be published already now, but well, the Czech site fotoskoda just posted it here (translation) together with the XF 23mm announcement. Yep, the blue X-A1 (I still have to get used to it) leaked by Fujirumors here wasn’t a fake image. This camera will be the cheapest of the X-series. [UPDATE: The Czech site disabled the link of the leaked X-A1 press release… but luckily it’s all copied on Fujirumors :)]

all the best

it will come :)

To all those guys who waited until late August for the X100 firmware and wrote me on facebook, twitter and via email at fujirumor@gmail.com that they have lost their hope in the X100 super-firmware. I tell you, it will come! The firmware was planed to be released earlier (a new source said late August), but apparently Fuji needs a bit more time to make it work perfectly (it won’t come tomorrow… but it won’t take long anymore).

The 130,000 X100 owners will get…

– focus peaking

– 20% faster autofocus

– better start-up time

… and much more!

Now share this rumor with all the X100 owners via facebook and twitter!

 Live-blogging tomorrow at about 6-7 AM London time

The XF 23mm is ready to be unveiled officially by Fuji. Hands-on reviews, press releases and pre-order links can be found all at Fujirumors tomorrow at about 6-7 AM London time. I’ll continuously update the post so that you do not miss anything. And follow FR via facebook, twitter and RSS feed.

XF 23mm announcement tomorrow (September 5), shipped in October and price should be of 929€

A source just told me that the new (and long expected) XF 23mm will be released tomorrow, September 5. I don’t know at what time exactly until now, but the price should be around €929. So it seems that this lens could cost, at least in Europe, a bit more than the [shoplink 12888]XF 14mm[/shoplink].

As soon as I know the price in dollar, I’ll let you know.

Follow FR tomorrow via facebook, twitter and RSS feed, I’ll give all the rumors, hands-on reviews and informations about this lens and also tell you when the stores are taking pre-orders in a special live-stream post. I hope this time Fuji will ship it faster than the [shoplink 12892]XF 55-200[/shoplink] and X100S.


New images of the XF 23mm f/1.4 leaked

Over 1 month ago I’ve already posted the first image of the upcoming XF 23mm f/1.4 here. Now digicame-info was able to get more images about the next Fuji prime here (tranlsation). As we already know, the lens comes with distant scale and has a filter tread of 62mm. The lens should be announced in a few days.

As you know from this FR-post here, the UK store ParkCameras is taking preorders on the 23mm, 10-24 and 56. The 23mm price there is of £679, £50 cheaper than the [shoplink 12888]XF 14mm[/shoplink]. The most expensive XF lenses at ParkCameras are the 56 and 10-24.

And here is how this lens looks like on the X-PRO1.

P.S.: Stay tuned on Fujirumors via facebook, twitter and RSS feed. The IFA in Berlin is ready to start!
