    * NOTE: Rumor shared shared April 12, 2021 but I add it here for you to have a complete overview on the X-H2 rumors

*50% to 74% correct

  1. Meike 135mm X Mount Lens Coming July/August (shared April 29)
  2. Fujifilm X-H2 40MP to cost $1,999 (shared July 8)*
    * Note: the price has been told to us by several highly trusted sources. I only move it into the medium ranking, because there is still quite some time before the X-H2 gets announced, hence, especially in these crazy times, Fujifilm could decide to change the price. However, if I shared it anyway, it means Fujifilm is doing everything possible to keep that price
