After the kits, now also the bodies! The shipment of the X-E2 seems to proceed smoothly (in contrast to the [shoplink 16128]XF 23mm[/shoplink], which is still hard to find, at least in USA). BHphoto has all the combinations in stock, also the maybe most wanted one: the black body. Adorama has the silver body available here.

The kit version is easier to find. Click on the links below to check the in stock status.

X-dreams: what should be the key features of a Full Frame Fuji X camera?


 photo pro_zps2b6733fe.jpg

[UDPATE: You’re thinking to switch to the X. Then save up to $1,400 on the XF lenses and X-E2 (or X-E1, X-PRO1,X-M1). See this crazy deal here.]

 I’m sorry, that’s no leaked image. It’s just… I had some time to dream!

As I told you 2014 could be the year when Fuji goes full frame. But I would like to hear from you what kind of crucial features should be taken into the account for a new FF X cameras. This for example is my list:

– Price under $2,500 for the body only
– Hybrid Viewfinder is a must
– New generation X trans FF sensor with a minimum of 24+ Megapixels… and phase detection pixels all over the sensor and not only in the center for super-fast focus also on the edge of the image.
– Weather Sealed and full metal body
– ISO dial

Ok, what about the X-PRO2 or PRO1S? I’m working on it… it’s the most complicated rumor I’ve ever worked on. So, lemme put together the different data points and then I’ll tell you more.

it’s almost weekend… enjoy it!

[UPDATE] Black X-E2 kit in stock + is it worth to upgrade from the X-E1?


 photo adorama_zpsd0787d5d.jpg

The black X-E2 kit is in stock at Pictureline. AmazonUSBHphoto and Adorama have only the silver kit in stock.

[UPDATE:] Things change quickly. The black X-E2 kit sold like hot cakes at BHphoto  and is now out of stock… but the good news is that it is back in stock at Adorama and Pictureline, and at [shoplink 19165 ebay]top rated ebayUS reseller kenmorecamera[/shoplink] now!

The body is still unavailable at the major online retailers… if you find it somewhere, share it on in the comments or at dealsrunner.com.

To upgrade or not to upgrate? That is the question at the moment. Mike Kobal will upgrate. The X-E2 will replace his X-E1. Not only, but will he sell also his X100S? Decisions, decision… read more here: “This might finally be the camera I have been waiting for, fast, small, lightweight, unobtrusive. Personally, I think the X-E2 is one of the best examples of the form follows function principle. I am seriously considering giving up high speed sync and the inaudible shutter in favor of interchangeable lenses. And it is black. Hmmmm. Only time will tell, for now I am planning to keep mine :) Check back by the end of the week for an update with images!”

An update to what belongs the X-E2 French double kit offer (18-55 + 55-200): It should be available at the end of December/start of January.

And here is B&H deal on the X-E1 with kit lens: For $1,099 you get the X-E1, 18-55, 16GB SD-card and Ruggard Streak 25 Shoulder Bag (save $55)

 photo XQ1_zps72db18c3.jpg


AmazonUS has the silver and black XQ1 in stock for $449 (limited number available). Also BHphoto and Adorama have it available for the same price (while the black version costs $499 at BHphoto).

Top rated ebayUS reseller kenmorecamera has both, the [shoplink 19110 ebay]silver[/shoplink] and [shoplink 19111 ebay]black[/shoplink] XQ1 ready to be shipped… also with $50 instant savings (black version too).


And did you miss the AmazonUS gold box deal last week? Don’t worry, the X-S1 is still to have for just $399 (it was $379 last week). Still an awesome deal that you can grab here at AmazonUS.

And what about the XF 10-24 lens? You may have noticed that I never was able to give confirmation from trusted sources about the release date. Let’s hope the new source was right. I’ll keep you posted. In the meantime, check out this video, where Kayce Baker from Fujifilm said 3 weeks ago that the 10-24 would come “very very soon“, and the 56mm in the new year (at 0:51).
