The X-T1 is still hard to find. FR-reader Joakim Johansson (website) was tired to wait and here is what he did:
“I purchased an XT-1 and 35 1.4 from Hong Kong, on ebay. I purchased the camera from T-Dimension, on Monday at lunch (Swedish time). It was sent on Tuesday from Hong Kong, and I received it today at lunch, which is around 48 hours. I purchased it for £745 which is really cheap! It’s the 35 1.4 on the camera, and that lens was ordered at the same time from dzone2 for £300, same there, from Hong Kong and it got here with the camera
Sometime I like to link to workshops of X-shooters all around the world. Well, this time I was pretty surprised to read that Damien Lovegrove (official Fuji X-photographer and known also for testing products for FujiUK) is organizing one in Cambodia in July/August and that he will likely use a Fujifilm X-PRO2 and the Fujinon XF 14, 23, 35, 56 and 55-200 lenses.
Sure, it must be a typo. You will hardly see any X-PRO2 before Photokina in September, when it could be officially announced. I don’t think anyone is allowed to show an X-Pro2 before that event.
But is that “X-PRO2” in Damien’s workshop just a simple typo or a Freudian slip? Well, maybe Fuji X-photographer Damien just told us that the X-PRO2 will be compatible with the existing XF-lenses.
So, dear Damian, lemme know if you’ll use the X-PRO2 in your workshop. I have holidays in August and could join it ;-).
Thanks for the link, Kamal.
