Fujifilm has definitely not been lazy and has announced tons of gear in 2021.
However, most of it is hard to find.
I was extremely lucky, as I grabbed the last available XF27mmF2.8 R WR at my local store on the first day the lockdown ended and I could finally leave my micro-village and drive to the store in the city nearby. And for the Fujifilm GFX100S I had to wait “only” 5 months.
But how does the situation look like now? Down below the in stock check of all the gear announced in 2021.
Adorama has a few samples in stock. No other store listed below has the GFX100S available. The store Moment expect availability on October 15.
A limited number of Fuji’s latest speed monster is available at AmazonUS here. The lens is in stock also at Focuscamera. The Fujinon GF80mmF1.7 is expected to be in stock in 2-4 weeks at BHphoto. Adorama just says “coming soon”. Moment expects it for October 21.
It was originally planed to ship by the end of September, but Fujifilm issued an official delivery delay notice for the GFX50SII with GF35-70 kit, so let’s see how this will change things.
So far all stores expect the body only version as well as the kit version to be available on October 21.
So far stores expect it to ship on November 30. Only Adorama is slightly more optimistic and gives us November 20 as shipping start.
It’s on back-order everywhere. And the situation seems to be rather dramatic, as BHphoto and AmazonUS even stopped accepting pre-orders on it. You can still order it at Adorama.
It is back-ordered everywhere. The only time indications we get comes from AmazonUS here, who expects stock around October 20 and Moment here, who is more optimistic and hopes to be able to ship some samples on October 3.
XF27mmF2.8 R WR
This is the one lens every X shooter should own (and I own it), but you can’t buy it at the moment, as it is unavailable everywhere. AmazonUS even gave up and stopped taking pre-orders on it for now.
It is expected to ship on October 21.
XF 33mmF1.4 R LM WR
It was supposed to start shipping on September 29, but pre-orders are very high and forced Fujifilm to issue an official delivery delay notice. Now it is expected to ship on October 21.
XF 23mmF1.4 R LM WR
It is expected to ship on November 30.
XF18mmF1.4 R LM WR
Good News. This one is in stock everywhere!
