24 Hours Left and we Still Know Nothing about the Fujifilm X-Pro2 :: Japanese estimated price leaked


XPC leer

Exclusive X-pert Corner Special on January 14 @ 11:30 PM New York Time

_ _ _

Let me say it like this: “We don’t know anything about the Fujifilm X-Pro2… despite all the leaks of our amazing sources!”


Because on paper the wide phase detection pixel coverage sounds amazing… but in real life, how good does it perform? And how is the dynamic range of the new 24MP sensor? The ISO noise and more?

We want samples. We want first looks. We need tests… and for some reason nobody has (still) published (leaked) a first look ahead of the X-Pro2 launch.

And while specs are more or less exciting, what X-shooters really need now is not the on-paper-camera, but the real-life-camera. Feeling, handling & on field performance is not something you’ll find in spec-sheets (or in rather bad Promo Videos ;) )

But until then, all we have are rumors… and our rumor buddy digicame-info just leaked the price in Yen:

X-Pro2: 215000 yen (tax included) – ($1,681)
XF100-400mm: 242000 yen (tax included) – ($1,892)
X70: 96000 yen (including tax) – ($750)
External for X70 optical view finder VF-X21: 23000 yen (including tax) – ($179)
FinePix XP90: 30000 yen (including tax) – ($234)

Last Second Rumors: X-Pro2 for $/€ 1,799 :: X-E2 FW announcement on the 15th :: X70 maybe not €800 … and more!


Sit down, lean back, and let me do the job on the 14th of January :)

I will collect everything worth to be shared in the for sure most challanging live blogging session I ever had here on FujiRumors, on January 14th at 23:30 PM New York Time. Just stay tuned on FR, refresh the page, and enjoy the latest updates about the X-Pro2, X70, X-E2s, XF100-400, the EF-X500 Flash and X-E2 FW 4.00.

In the last 2 months FujiRumors has shared over 60 rumor articles and even more specs & details about all the upcoming X-gear. It was truely a strenuous rumor-marathon… but an exctiting one, thanks to the amazing FR-sources and the FR-community! :-)

Now, I don’t pretend all these specs/rumors to be 100% correct (I’m FujiRUMORS not FujiFACTS). Two or three rumors might not be 100% correct. So it’s time for some last second clarifications/correction.

  1. A source asked me to clarify that on the 15th of January Fujifilm will announce the X-E2 FW 4.00, and not release it (maybe it will come along with the X-T1 FW scheduled for late January?). I’m sorry if in the rumor marathon of these days, also written after a surgery and with high fever, I’ve maybe mistaken “announced” with “coming”.
  2. I’ve got a hint (thanks!) that the X70 price could be different to the one rumored here on FujiRumors (I said “around €800here). Let’s hope it will be cheaper.
  3. I’ve told you that the X-Pro2 shipping could start on the 4th (see here). I believe the embargo is on the 4th, but now a new source told me it could eventually be the 5th of February. Anyway, everything is pointing towards a very early February shipping

That’s it… about all the other 60+ rumors/specs I’ve shared in the last 2 months I don’t change a single thing ;)

And here are some last second rumors:

  • X-Pro2 could cost $/€1799, which would fit with what rumored earlier here.
  • The X-E2s will have an “Auto” button instead an “Fn2” button like on the X-E2 – source: X-E2s video promo

P.S: I’m sorry if I couldn’t answer to all of you in the comments directed to me. I was extremely busy behind the scenes with FR (and privately), and with several hundreds of comments a day on FujiRumors, I might have missed some of you asking me specific questions.

stay tuned
