Fujifilm has definitely not been lazy and has announced tons of gear in 2021.
However, most of it is hard to find.
I was extremely lucky, as I grabbed the last available XF27mmF2.8 R WR at my local store on the first day the lockdown ended and I could finally leave my micro-village and drive to the store in the city nearby. And for the Fujifilm GFX100S I had to wait “only” 5 months.
But how does the situation look like now? Down below the in stock check of all the gear announced in 2021.
A limited number of Fuji’s latest speed monster is available at AmazonUS here. The lens is in stock also at Focuscamera. The Fujinon GF80mmF1.7 is expected to be in stock in 2-4 weeks at BHphoto. Adorama just says “coming soon”. Moment expects it for October 21.
It is back-ordered everywhere. The only time indications we get comes from AmazonUS here, who expects stock around October 20 and Moment here, who is more optimistic and hopes to be able to ship some samples on October 3.
XF27mmF2.8 R WR
This is the one lens every X shooter should own (and I own it), but you can’t buy it at the moment, as it is unavailable everywhere. AmazonUS even gave up and stopped taking pre-orders on it for now.
It is expected to ship on October 21.
XF 33mmF1.4 R LM WR
It was supposed to start shipping on September 29, but pre-orders are very high and forced Fujifilm to issue an official delivery delay notice. Now it is expected to ship on October 21.
XF 23mmF1.4 R LM WR
It is expected to ship on November 30.
XF18mmF1.4 R LM WR
Good News. This one is in stock everywhere!
