The second bunch of XF 56mm left Japan and arrived in the States right now. AmazonUS is sending notifications to those customers who purchased the 56mm. So also to Nathan, who pre-ordered it on January 30th. He will get his new lens soon.

At the moment there is one in stock via third party reseller at AmazonUS (Murphy’s Camera), but you have to pay $20 extra for it.

X-shooter Roger (US) wrote me an email with the following information: “The dealer in Japan that I purchased 56mm lens from just informed me that the 10-24mm lens arrived today and I purchased for $ 1010. Should have it next Monday or Tuesday.” Here is the Japanese eBay reseller who has the 10-24 in stock. Roger said that “The dealer in Tokyo that I referenced earlier has now posted this lens on Ebay at $ 1090. The posting does not say how many are available. I have purchased the 56mm lens in the past and it was shipped same day and packed extremely well. EMS Express shipping was 4 days to West Coast. The 10-24mm was ordered and shipped today. This is a reliable dealer and prices lower that other Ebay sellers in Japan.”

First Impressions

– Camera Preview: Fujifilm X-T1 with XF 10-24mm F/4 R OIS at bigheadtaco here: “This camera is everything that all the hype built it up to be. This camera is a game changer (I hate to use this term since everyone is using it); and I think that companies that haven’t invested into the larger sensor (APS-C and full-frame) mirrorless camera market (Canon, Nikon, Pentax) better beware. Although I highly respect the micro 4/3 system (amazing variety of bodies and lenses), I think many are now thinking about upgrading (sensor-wise) to the Fujifilm X series with their eyes on the X-T1. […] Overall, a great lens [10-24] and a great addition to the already complete line up of lenses in the X-series. The size and weight is equal to the complexity of the design and performance of this lens. It’s very addictive being able to shoot so wide, and I found myself just walking around and taking in the world at 10mm!! Ideally, I did find that I preferred shooting no wider than 14mm when shooting street.”

–  My first pictures with the new Fujifilm XF 10-24 F4 R OIS  at mworsdorfer here: ” Before I share the following images with you I have to say a few words about the new XF10-24. If you think this lens is small and compact, you’ll be disappointed. It is pretty much exactly the same size as for instance Nikon’s 10-24 or 12-24 equivalent. However, there is absolutely no way that you can compare these lenses. ”

Patent: fast super telephoto XF zoom lens 85-300mm f/2.7 – 3.7


 photo fuji_x_85_300mm_zps879795d7.jpg

Mirrorlessrumors spotted a new Fuji patent. The Fuji patent, published here, shows a fast super telephoto zoom lens, the XF 85-300 f/2.7-3.7. It’s a patent, so the figures could change. Also the XF 56mm (best seller at AmazonUS) changed from f1.4 to f/1.2 on my birthday last year (April 17th).

A new source told us previously here that the lens would be a 120-400 lens (equivalent or not, the source did not specify).

EU-ORDERS: Luzu: “Choose UPS for international delivery, their option “UPS Super Saver” for around 45$ is the cheapest anyways. If you “pay on delivery”, UPS will handle all the customs work for you and deliver the item home to you where you pay the customs costs directly to the mailman. No going to customs office needed! Declaration of the deliveries from B&H is made very professionally by them and UPS, so I guess German customs are seldom stopping them. I already ordered two lenses this way (the 27mm and the 55-200mm) without problems! Btw.: The delivery is by plane and super fast … around two days only!
