Fujifilm X-T4 now $150 Off and XF56mmF1.2 still $300 Off

The inevitable just happened. The Fujifilm X-T4 is now in offer in various combination with a $150 discount.

The X-T4 is no longer manufactured, so this is the last stock remaining (and some of it is already no longer available at some stores).

Still running for 1 more week: the $300 discount on the original XF56mmF1.2 R.

DPReview adds Fujifilm X-H2 to Studio Comparison, Giving Insight on Fujifilm X-T5 Performance… but There is a Problem!

The Fujifilm shared the same heart and brain of Fuji’s top of the line Fujifilm X-H2: a 40 megapixel X-Trans sensor and the new X Processor 5.

So, image quality between the two cameras will be pretty much identical.

And now that DPReview has finally added the Fujifilm X-H2 to their studio comparison, we can safely assume that what we see will be identical in terms of performance to the Fujifilm X-T5.

But attention, the test itself does not really have full validity, as the lens used is the original Fujinon XF 56mm F1.2 R, a lens that is not able to take full advantage of the 40 megapixel sensor. They say they will re-shoot the test once they have the new Fujinon XF56mmF1.2 R WR available.

Personally I’d have prefered them to just wait to have the new lens available, as right now the test is kind of flawed to start with. But hey, let’s just hope they will find quickly a new XF56mmF1.2 R WR and re-shoot the whole thing (maybe one of you guys living in Seattle can borrow them a copy? ;) ).

But there is also something to be learned from their test.

In fact, it shows that even though the old XF56mmF1.2 R is not listed among the 40 megapixel capable lenses, it enjoys anyway a clear sharpness boost on the 40MP sensors.

So if you own lenses not on the list and buy a 40MP sensor X body, you will notice sharper images anyway… maybe just 35 or 37mp sharp, not the full 40MP, but still an improvement that you’ll enjoy in your images.

With this disclaimer out of the way, head over to the DPR comparison tool page to pixel peep as much as your heart desires. And if you do, take screenshots and share your findings in the comments.

We remind you that the Fujifilm X-H2 has the best measured dynamic range of any X camera (and that will apply also to the Fujifilm X-T5).

Terrific Sales, but Amazon Stops Taking X-T5 Pre-Orders… but Don’t Worry, You Can Still Pre-Order at Adorama and BHphoto (and Win $1,700)

For some reason, Amazon USA has now stopped taking pre-orders on the Fujifilm X-T5.

Until pre-orders were taken (and actually still now), the Fujifilm X-T5 black and silver results in the top 5 of the overall digital camera sales at Amazon (only beaten by some cheap toy cameras, baby monitors and stuff like that), and the X-T5 also dominates the digital mirrorless camera ranking at Amazon.

But don’t worry, Adorama is still taking pre-orders as well as BHphoto is taking pre-orders.

And if you are US resident and pre-order at BHphoto using our our affiliate link, you will automatically join our sweepstakes, which will give you the chance to win $1,700… which means you basically get the Fujifilm X-T5 for free if you win.

So, if you did not order via FujiRumors B&H affiliate link, feel free to cancel your previous order and place a new one after clicking this liink.

For all the details and the full terms and conditions check out our dedicated X-T5 sweepstakes article here.

Fujifilm USA Drops Yet Another Ingenious Ad for Fujifilm X-T5

Do you remember when Fujifilm USA dropped a brilliant Fujifilm GFX100S ad that basically was a shout-out to FujiRumors and created one of the most hilarious photography promo video I have seen ever?

If not, check out their video here.

Well, the one they dropped for the Fujifilm X-T5 is not less hilarious. I won’t spoil anything, just watch it above!

And to be clear… the X-T line was forced into the flagship role, as we reported here. But it’s nice to see the X-T line going back to its roots.
