Delay with X lens shipment in USA stores!

Share

Usually camera shipments are delayed because of a high request. But in that case it seems that Fuji completely underestimated the high 35mm X lens pre order request! Those of you who preordered the camera and lens at Amzon US will probably have received the following message:

For the camera body alone: “Your estimated delivery date is: Tuesday, April 3, 2012

For the Fujifilm Lens X-Pro1 35mm F1.4 Lens: “Estimated arrival date: May 01, 2012 – May 02, 2012” :(

As you may know asian and european stores are already shipping the new X camera and lenses. USA stores only are a bit “late” with the shipments.

Fujifilm X-Pro1 Camera and Lens Reviews (firmware will address the AF speed issue!)

Share

The video on top has been made by Kai from Digitalrev.

ThedigitalPhotographySchool (Click here) posted a short Fuji X PRO 1 review and a short final sentence: “phenomenal! Razor sharp, precise colour capture.” :)

The bigger news comes form our friend John Smith (Click here). He got the X PRO 1 for testing from Fuji Canada. And he “called Fuji Canada about this AF problem and Gerry, the person at the camera technical support centre, reassured me that Fuji is working on improving the camera. Firmware updates are on the way. I just wish to pass my thanks to Fuji for its concerns for the customers.I was very impressed by the knowledge and helpfulness that I received.

Good to hear that Fuji listens to the customers and the AF speed can be improved soon :)

Fuji X PRO 1 news roundup (with NEX-7 ISO comparison)

Share

Steve Huff (Click here) made a quick ISO comparison between the X PRO and the  NEX-7. Of course you can easily guess who won the comparison :)

Hands On Review at ThePhoBlographer (Click here): “This is the camera that many of us have been waiting for. It is smallish, built well, has lenses ready with it, and has some exceptional image quality. It feels excellent in my hands and to be very honest with you, I am very close to selling my Canon 7D in order to fund one.

Hi!

I just came back from a five days trip in Venice. With a huge surprise I found the first X PRo 1 camera in the middle of the city. I didn’t buy it yet because it was highly overpriced. But I played a bit with it. Had a lot of fun :) I am now catching up with the latest X PRO 1 news:
The Hyperprime 50mm f/0.95 got tested on the new X PRo 1 at f8photography (Click here).
