Holy moly, what a panic!
After the last Fujifilm X-Pro3 Japanese price leak, people started out panicing that it will cost more than $2,000.
But there is no reason to panic. As I wrote in the original price leak post:
- the Fujifilm X-Pro3 will cost 235,950 yen (converter to dollar it’s $2,173)
- the Fujifilm X-Pro2 costs 219,450 yen (converter to dollar it’s $2,022)
This means that, in Japan, there is an 8% price increase between X-Pro2 and X-Pro3.
Now let’s apply the same 8% price increase to US pricing:
- X-Pro2 costs $1,699
- X-Pro3 + 8% = $1,834
So, guys, the regular Fujifilm X-Pro3 will cost less than $2,000.
I don’t know how much the DURA X-Pro3 versions will cost, though.
