Refurbished Fuji X-T20 w/18-55 f2.8-4 R LM OIS w/90-day warranty for $670

A trio of factory reconditioned Fuji X-system cameras with a 90-day Fuji warranty can be found at the Woot $1 Million (or less) Gifts Sale good until 12/20/20 at 11:59pm central time or earlier if sold out…

We start with the middle of the three price-wise, the factory reconditioned Fuji X-T20 with 18-55mm f2.8-4 R OIS going for $670 with free US shipping for Prime members in the silver color scheme. Up to three per customer. With a 90-day Fuji warranty…

Again, plenty of choices in the X-system, both from above and from below. The benefit of this kit is that you get the 18-55mm f2.8-4 OIS lens, which, given the lack of competitive 3rd-party auto-focus zoom lenses, does not face a whole lot of competition for what it is…

PS: if you are a Prime member, you get free upgraded 2-day shipping (instead of free standard shipping) at Woot until 12/20/20 at 11:59pm central time [coincidence that they have the same expiration time]…

Refurbished Fuji X-T2 w/18-55 f2.8-4 R LM OIS w/90-day warranty for $850

Also part of the Woot sub-$1 million gifts sale you can get the factory reconditioned Fuji X-T2 with 18-55 f2.8-4 R LM OIS for $850 with free US shipping for Prime members and a 90-day Fuji warranty… Up to ten per customer…

This is where the trade-offs and options get even more confusing because at the top-end you have the X-T4 and X-T3 duo, and then you have the X-Tx0 options, so you can trade-off “generations” versus line-up standing…

It’s good to have options, but sometimes options come with bonus headaches 😉

Sale ends at 12/20/20 at 11:59pm central time or earlier if sold out…

Refurbished Fuji X-T100 w/15-45/3.5-5.6 OIS PZ XC w/90-day warranty for $380

One of the surprise deals under the Woot under $1 million Gifts (HA!) sale is the factory reconditioned Fuji X-T100 with XC 15-45 f3.5-5.6 OIS PZ with a 90-day Fuji warranty going for $380 with free shipping for Prime members…

It is available in two color schemes with up to three per customer… There are countless options in the Fuji X-system these days, so you can do all kinds of trade-offs especially if you are willing to buy/sell (eg buy MF budget primes and sell the 15-45 XC if you don’t want/need it)…

Fuji has avoided the confusion of all the other manufacturers as they are the only ones with just one system at one sensor size [yes I know but the medium format system is a professional niche, not a general purpose photography system]…

Sale ends at 12/20/20 at 11:59pm central time or earlier if sold out…
