Insane Fujifilm USA Deals Possibly Great Deals also for Europeans!

Share

Long time FujiRumors readers will remember, when back in February 2014 Fujifilm launched such amazing Fuji X lens deals (especially on the XF27mm), that X-shooters, who ordered from Europe and paid all import taxes and shipping, still saved a whole lot of money.

Well, I haven’t tried by myself, but, given the insane US-X deals, it might be possible that also this time EU residents could save some nice bucks by ordering in USA.

In fact, when you proceed to checkout, BHphoto offers a tool, where they estimate the shipping & tax costs if you order from outside USA.

I’ve used it (for Germany), and it tells me that I’m going to pay overall $1,062 (€912) for the X-T1 with XF35mmF2… and now let’s compare it to AmazonDE.

BHphoto: X-T1 ($799) + XF 35mmF2 ($0) + shipping/taxes to Germany ($213) = $1,062.65 (€ 912)
AmazonDE: X-T1 (€899) + XF 35mmF2 (currently discounted at €413) = € 1,312

That’s a total saving of €400 for EU residents, who grab the X-T1 + 35/2 in USA… also wenn das kein Schnäppchen ist… ;)

So if any EU resident wants to try it, feel free to let us know in the comments. You can find the full list of US-X savings below.

Keep in mind three things:

  • I haven’t actually ordered the gear. I’ve just used the tool BHphoto offers at checkout to calculate the total costs. I can’t say if it’s 100% accurate.
  • by ordering in USA you won’t get the standard 2 year EU warranty, but only the 1 year international one
  • in some countries, BH might not be able to ship it because of the lithium batteries. A workaround suggested by a FR-reader in the comments is to choose FedEx or UPS for international service. Ask in the comments for more details
