I recently wrote an article on why I believe the Fujifilm GFX system has a glorious future ahead. You can read it here.
I mention that article, because in the comments a FR-reader said that pre-orders for the new GFX100 are strong:
Talking to a Fuji rep at a GFX100 demo and he said orders were triple that of forecasts
Another report from the Fujifilm GFX group says:
I got information, now. I have to wait GFX100 a month [in Japan]. If ordering now, have to wait 2 months. What a big mount of order.
From my own sources I can only confirm that pre-orders are stronger than expected.
If all this is correct, then you can expect delivery shortage.
Let’s look at the 3 major stores:
- B&H Photo: first batch is shipping but BH has more pre-orders than stock, so they wait for more cameras to come from Japan
- Adorama: It is listed as “On Backorder”. Our GFX group members contacted Adorama, who told them to expect shipping early July.
- AmazonUS markes it available within 1 to 2 months.
Some lucky guys already got their Fujifilm GFX100 shipped, and are now very actively sharing impressions and samples at our Fujifilm GFX group.
