The Fuji X-T2 body only goes for $1600 on its own [see Stock Status Tracker], but for a limited time, the body only is bundled with the official Fuji Battery Grip for just $100 more. On top of that, Adorama is bundling extra freebies, a 32GB Lexar SD card, a camera bag, the Corel software bundle (three of the five software titles are photo/video related), and a few more accessotrinkets (card wallet, card reader, cleaning kit). All this for $1696 with free expedited shipping.
It’s finally back in-stock! The new condition Fuji X-T2 with the 18-55mm kit lens is in-stock for its starting price of $1900 at Amazon by Amazon itself which is restricted to Prime members, but there are also a variety of 3rd-parties through Amazon that are not restricted to Prime members. Their shipping estimate is later than Amazon since they don’t offer Prime shipping.
For all the options, check the just updated Stock Status Tracker.
An update of the Stock Status Tracker is in progress. The Fuji X-T2 Graphite body only remains out of stock in new condition, but if you are comfortable with USED cameras, there are two used listings of it at Amazon Warehouse Deals by Amazon itself (their used subsidiary) for $1540 with free shipping in “Used – Like New” condition. Both have descriptions, and one of the two has actual pictures of the used cameras. As usual, used camera supplies are typically limited, especially for hard to find cameras.
For fans of Instant Cameras, and more specifically Instax Mini, the 60 sheet pack of Fujifilm Instax Mini Film Value Pack is on sale for the very specific price of $33.70 at Amazon by Amazon itself. Free shipping for Prime members or with a $35+ order. You can buy up to five 60-packs during this sale.
Or if you are a fan of “Subscribe and Save”, you can buy it for the same price through Subscribe and Save where it is eligible for additional discounts if you qualify for the monthly minimums set forth by “Subscribe and Save”.
This begins a burst of Stock update posts after updating the Stock Status Tracker. We start with the Fuji X-T2 with 18-55mm kit, out of stock in new condition, but available in “Used – Very Good” condition (repackaged) for $1662~ by Amazon Warehouse Deals itself. This is Amazon’s own USED sales persona, not 3rd party sellers.
Various options are available for the Fuji X-T2 body only during this update of the Stock Tracker.
And now we have updated the Fuji X100F segment of the Stock Status Tracker. The black X100F is out of stock everywhere at $1300, but some places sell it with the usual “limited availability premium”.
However, we have good news for the silver X100F. It is in-stock and ready to ship for $1300 by Best Buy (eBay) with a limit of three per buyer.
Also, if you are a fan of eBay auctions, one individual (100%, West Virginia) has an eBay AUCTION for this. It is currently at $920 with 28 bids and the auction closed on Thursday at 9:25pm ET. The condition is USED with 280 shutter actuations. Half a dozen pictures of the actual camera are also included in the listing.
This sale ended, the price is now $230 as of 6/7/17…
If you want to get both the Fuji X-T2 and its official battery grip, you can buy them together for $100 more than the X-T2 body only on its own. Not only that, but Adorama bundles additional free accessories with it: 24/7 Traffic Collection holster, 32GB Lexar SDHC UHS-II U3 memory card, cleaning kit, memory card wallet, card reader, and the Corel software bundle.
But if you only want the battery grip, the Fujifilm VPB-XT2 Vertical Power Booster, it is currently on sale for $169~ with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon itself with a limit of up to ten units per customer.
As of 5/31/17 re-check, this is sold out…
If you are interested in the Fuji X100F, as of this Stock Tracker update, the situation is this:
This may be a computer-generated price-match, so I don’t know how long it will last, but the new condition Fuji X-T2 body only is not only in-stock but it is also down to $1516 with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon itself with a limit of up to three per customer.
If you are a more adventurous shopper, you can get it for $1499 by Cardinal Photo through Amazon (not Prime eligible).

Here’s evidence to make sure I’m not hallucinating early in the morning 🙂
Some of the colors of the new Fuji Instax Mini 9 instant camera are in-stock and ready to ship for $68 to $70 at Amazon.com, some by Amazon itself, some by 3rd-party sellers. Check the various colors and detailed listings for each to see all available options. There are five color schemes for the camera, handy if you want to easily be able to tell who owns which model 🙂
The new square format Fuji SQ10 hybrid (digital and instant at the same time) is now in-stock and ready to ship for $279 with free shipping by Roberts thru Amazon. This is not Prime eligible, so you get slow free shipping unless you $upgrade$ to faster shipping. As of the time of writing there are five units available.
These lightning deals ran out of light (aka expired)…
This was a very productive update of the Stock Status Tracker as it produced a handful of In-Stock Alerts, including the new condition Fuji X-T2 body only going for $1600 with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon itself with a limit of up to three units per customer. A 3rd-party seller (Wolfe’s) has it in-stock as well among those in the detailed listings.
Or if you are a fan of used, the X-T2 with 18-55 is currently available used for $1662. Keep in mind, used quantities are even more limited than new condition when it comes to “hard to find” camera gear.
If you are fond of used camera, the Fuji X-T2 with the 18-55 lens is available in “Used – Very Good” condition for $1662~ by Amazon Warehouse Deals actual. The new condition price for this kit at authorized dealers is $1900. The description is very spartan in this case…
The floodgates have finally opened for the Fuji GFX-50S, it is now in-stock at multiple dealers for its starting price of $6500 including Amazon itself and various 3rd-party sellers over there, along with B&H Photo and Adorama. When you expand the yellow “Special Offers” section at Adorama, they have a variety of combined purchase discounts if you buy the camera with various lens adapters and accessories.
For the big picture, check the Stock Status Tracker.
It is pure coincidence that I’m updating the Stock Status Tracker on Mondays, it’s supposed to get updated a lot more often, but time seems to fly faster and faster these days. Anyway, enough meta-talk, to the Fuji X100F-landia we go…
… where the Best Buy’s eBay store has the silver X100F in-stock for $1300. Limit three per buyer per the listing page.
On the black X100F front, Amazon itself has a May 18 in-stock estimate as of the time of writing. Keep in mind these estimates change over time…
If you are a Prime member and pay with either the Chase Amazon VISA credit card or the Prime Store credit card, you will receive 5% back as a statement credit, which is no small change, it is $65~ given the current price.
If you are not a Prime member, and you pay with the Chase Amazon VISA credit card you get 3% back as a statement credit, around $39. Citibank’s Forward credit card used to offer 5% on Amazon, but unless you are in a grandfathered card that wasn’t switched over, they no longer offer it (as far as I can tell).
On the other hand, if you are a fan of buying used from eBay, an individual has a USED (eBay Auction) that ends on Tuesday at 10:30pm ET. As of the time of writing, the auction price is $1125 with 29 bids. Shipping is $12 from the state of MA.
UPDATE 5/13/17: the previous listing is sold out but there is a black X-T2 body only kit in the same condition going for the same price. The link below has been updated…
The new condition price for the Fuji X-T2 body only is $1600 at authorized dealers, but if you are comfortable with used camera gear, you can get it in “Used – Demo condition” for $1450 plus shipping at Adorama [UPDATED!]. Used camera gear at Adorama come with a 30-day return policy and a 90-day Adorama warranty. Shipping starts at around $15 and varies slightly by zipcode.
PS: USED items are not eligible for free 2-day shipping and extended returns of the Adorama VIP360 service (their Prime-competitor service). VIP360 also offers a free metal print from AdoramaPIX.
The brand new Fuji X100F is slowly getting released for $1300 [see Stock Status Tracker] but if it’s the X100T the one you want, it currently goes for $1100 bundled with a Rode VideoMic Pro R Mic for $1099 with free shipping at Adorama and B&H Photo.
Or if you are a Prime member paying with either the Amazon Chase VISA or the Prime Store card, you can get $55 back as a statement credit thru Amazon.
If you prefer to buy camera gear from Amazon itself, not from 3rd-party sellers, Amazon itself has the Fuji GFX 50S medium format mirrorless camera in-stock for its starting price of $6500 with a limit of up to three units per customer.
If you are fond of buying from eBay, Kenmore Camera has it in-stock for $6500 as well.
For the big picture, check the Stock Status Tracker.
This auction ended with someone scooping it up towards the end, 15 bids and a $1200 price…
If you need some eBay auction entertainment/excitment, ending today at 12:08pm ET is a classic eBay auction by an individual seller on the Fuji X100F silver. As of 10:55am ET, there are 14 bids with a $1175 price. The individual eBay seller (100%, 65 ratings) is based in Los Angeles.
This used option sold out as well:
There is a “Used – Like New” option for $1202 by Amazon Warehouse Deals with a detailed condition and half a dozen pictures of the actual item (click on one of the two thumbnails to see the gallery).
The new condition price of the X100F at authorized dealers is $1300. For more options, check the Stock Status Tracker where there is one retailer that has both colors for $1300. The listing says they ship from the USA, but the seller’s page says they are in Hong Kong. I haven’t tried to go through with a purchase to see what happens [poor blogger!]
As of a 5/10/17 AM recheck, all used options at $1355 expired…
Another limited time offer is up at B&H Photo, the Fujifilm INSTAX Mini 90 Neo Classic Instant Camera is bundled with a 10pk of instant film for $125 with free expedited shipping. The camera is available in black or brown color schemes.
Meanwhile the Fujifilm instax SHARE Smartphone Printer SP-2 is bundled with a 10pk of instant film for $150 with free expedited shipping. The printer is available in silver or gold color schemes.
On the Fuji front, the Fuji X-A3 is bundled with the Fuji 16-50mm and 50-230mm lenses for $699 with free shipping at B&H Photo. This offer is available in all three color schemes, pink, silver and brown.
Meanwhile the Fuji X-T1 with 18-135mm is on sale for $1399 with free shipping and 4% promotional rewards which means you will have $56~ to spend in the future at B&H.
More new arrivals at B&H Photo, as of the time of writing the Fuji GF670 Rangefinder Folding Camera is in-stock and ready to ship for $2199 with free standard shipping. This is a film camera, uses 120 & 220 Roll Film. It shoots 6×6 or 6×7cm formats. The lens is built-in (80mm f3.5 Fujinon).
Some good news on the Fuji X-T2 front. The body only is available in “USED – Like New” condition for $1479 by Amazon Warehouse Deals itself. It is also in-stock in new condition at its starting price of $1600 by OneCall directly and by OneCall on eBay and by OneCall via Amazon.
In other Stock Status Tracker updates:
+ the Nikon D7500 moved to the bottom of the table since it’s still a few weeks away
+ I removed the Olympus E-M1 II since it has been steadily in-stock at normal prices. However, I am saving the entries, so if it runs out in the future, I can easily add it back to the table 🙂
If you had been looking for the black Fuji X100F, rejoice! It is currently in-stock for its starting price of $1300 at Amazon by Amazon itself. At the moment this is restricted to Prime members only.
Meanwhile, if you are a more adventurous shopper and love eBay auctions, an individual eBay seller started an auction on the silver Fuji X100F starting at $900. The auction ends on Monday at 12:08pm eastern time.

Fuji too has launched a new round of instant savings featuring a variety of X System camera kits, along with the X BSP (big sensor primes) and a quartet of waterproof P&S cameras too. A total of 21 options are available, organized by B&H Photo. It includes X-T1, X-T10, X-T20, X-A3, X100T, and XP-series waterproof Finepixies.
The Fuji X-T2 body only goes for $1600 in new condition at authorized dealers [see Stock Status Tracker], but if you are comfortable with imported grey-market cameras that get a seller’s warranty (instead of a Fuji USA warranty), then off to the eBay Deals we go…
… where 6ave’s eBay store (99.1%, New Jersey) is offering the new condition imported grey-market Fuji X-T2 body only for $1280 with free shipping and a 1-year warranty from the seller 6ave. Limit up to three units per customer.
These daily deals expired but for more action, check their Featured Sales…
Smartphones can cannibalize entry-level P&S digital cameras, but they can’t do that to instant film cameras, which continue to thrive! Case in point, Fuji has a new square format instant camera (that is also a digital hybrid), the Square SQ10, and it is available for pre-order for $280 at B&H Photo for $280. The digital part is a 1/4″ CMOS sensor that produces 1920 x 1920 digital stills.
On the waterproof cameras front, the lime-green Fuji XP90 is offered in certified refurbished condition for $105 with free shipping by a 3rd-party seller with the order fulfilled by Amazon, so you get free 2-day shipping as a member.
NOTE #1: the seller’s name is “Prime Deal” but it has nothing to do with Amazon. I do not know why Amazon allows 3rd-party sellers to use names that can confuse the casual shopper into thinking this is Amazon.
NOTE #2: “certified refurbished” at Amazon is a term Amazon defines products that have a 90-day minimum warranty but they can be refurbished by anyone, manufacturer, 3rd-party, seller, unicorns, etc. They have created a portal dedicated to certified refurbished products over there.
New addition to the Stock Status Tracker, the Fuji GFX-50S, it is in-stock for $6500 at multiple dealers, but if you are comfortable with used, you can get it for $5979 by Amazon Warehouse Deals itself (Amazon’s used sales persona, Prime eligible for members), or for $6000 by OneCall (Prime eligible) with a 1-year warranty from OneCall. Amazon’s own Warehouse Deals only promises a 30-day return policy, they don’t promise a warranty. From there, Adorama has it in “Used – Demo” condition for $6349 plus shipping (which is very close to the new condition price).
PS: blanket warning reminder for Amazon ~ Amazon has yet to figure out how to block the armies of spam/scam/bot sellers that offer high-demand items at ridiculously low prices in order to harvest customer data (and who knows what else they plan). These are typically “Just Launched” sellers, and they ask you to email them before buying.
With taxes finally done (don’t forget, Tuesday is the deadline for both the 2016 Tax Year and the first quarterly payment estimate for 2017), it is time to focus (pun intended) on the Stock Status Tracker. The bad news first, the Panasonic GH5 is out of stock at all the retailers I checked. The rest of the cameras tracked are good news for availability (bad news for your tax refund and/or wallet).
The Fuji X-T2 body only is back in-stock at Amazon by Amazon itself and a couple of 3rd-party sellers over there. The Prime-only restrictions are only for items sold and shipped by Amazon itself. 3rd-party sellers are happy to sell to anyone and everyone willing to pay 🙂 It is also in-stock at B&H Photo but note that orders will ship April 19+ even if you select overnight shipping!
The Canon 77D has been steadily in-stock every time I checked, the BuyDig bundle with a handful of accessories (3rd-party flash, converter lenses, filters ,bag, 64GB card, remote, and the usual assortment of trinkets (card reader, cleaning kit, microfiber cloth, air blower) included for the same price of $900.
Multiple Olympus E-M1 II Options
The Olympus E-M1 II body continues to go for $2000 at authorized dealers with stackable Combined Purchase Lens Discounts but there are some opportunities for discounting if you don’t need the stackable offer:
+ USED (Demo Condition) for $1859 + S&H at Adorama
+ USED (Like New Condition) for $1879 by Cardinal (via Amazon)
+ NOTE: ignore/AVOID those “Just Launched” sellers at Amazon that offer it for less. They are trolling/phishing for customer/financial data
+ NEW CONDITION but you can negotiate using eBay’s Built-In and Blessed “Best Offer” process by Pixel Connection (starting price is $2000)
I’ve fallen behind on stock updates, so I don’t know when this became in-stock, but the Fuji X100F Big Sensor Prime is now in-stock and ready to ship at its starting price of $1300 at Amazon by Amazon itself with a limit of up to three units per customer.
PS: if you are a Prime member, and you pay with either the Amazon Chase VISA or the Amazon Store Credit card, you get 5% back on your purchases as cashback or a statement credit. In this case, 5% of this is $65, not a small amount!
PS2: if you have an Amazon Store credit card, you may be offered a 12-month 0% APR financing promotion as long as you pay it in full in 12 months. The financing offer cannot be combined with the 5% statement credit, so you have to pick one or the other. The shopping cart will guide you through it if eligible.
These lightning deals expired…
Oops, I forgot to add this to the Stock Status Tracker but it is already in-stock, the new Fuji GFX 50S medium format mirrorless camera is in-stock and ready to ship for $6500 at Amazon by Amazon itself. Limit three per customer.
It’s hard to take pictures without a lens, the Fujinon GF 63mm F2.8 R WR is also in-stock for $1500 with free shipping with a matching limit of three per customer as well.
Another update of the Stock Status Tracker has two new updates on the Panasonic GH5 and Fuji X-T2 front!
On the Panasonic GH5 front, the body only kit is bundled with a dizzying variety of extra small accessories for $2100 with free shipping by BuyDig on eBay: a Vivitar flash, Vivitar battery and charger, Vivitar bag, Corel Paintshop PRO X8 software, 64GB Lexar SDXC 300x card, spider tripod, and cables and cleaning supplies.
On the Fuji X-T2 front, the Graphite Body Only is available for $1665 in “Used – Like New” condition by Amazon Warehouse Deals itself, Amazon’s own used products persona. They even have two pictures of the actual item.
As usual, supplies of both used and high-demand new products are limited, so it may be sold out by the time you read this.
Instant cameras continue to survive and advance, partly as a counter-culture to the abundance of digital photography, and Fuji is taking advantage of this by continuing to develop their Instax line of products. Their new Instax Mini 9 instant camera is now available for pre-order for $69 with free shipping, in five pastel-y color-schemes at Amazon by Amazon itself.
We have a trio of Fuji initiated instant savings promotion at B&H Photo. We start with the Fuji X-T10 mirrorless camera, available in these options:
+ black X-T10 with 16-50 for $700 with $28~ promotional rewards
+ silver X-T10 with 16-50 for $700 with $28~ promotional rewards
The Big Sensor Primes are alive and kicking too, and Fuji has an instant savings price cut on the Fuji X-100T, making the price $1100. You can get it in Silver with two different options:
Meanwhile the black color scheme of the X100T gets 4% promotional rewards, but there is no free microphone option.
All of the above X100-T options are priced at $1100 with free shipping, regardless of the freebies.
If it’s Sunday, it’s Meet the Manufacturer Initiated Instant Savings! Fuji has a $500 off instant savings promotion on their Fuji X-T1 cameras, with the following current prices after the instant-savings promotion is factored in:
+ X-T1 with 18-55 for $1200 with $48~ promotional rewards
+ X-T1 Graphite Body only for $1000 with $40~ promotional rewards AND free accessories (16GB SD card, Ruggard holster bag, extra Watson battery, cleaning cloth)
+ or with different set of free accessories (32GB Extreme SDXC, extra Watson battery, Power2000 travel charger, cleaning cloth) but no promotional rewards
Meanwhile the Olympus E-M1 II body only remains in-stock for its starting price of $2000 with Adorama offering $80 promotional rewards (to be used in future Adorama purchases). Or if you are a Prime member AND pay with either the Amazon-branded Chase VISA credit card or the Prime Store card, you can get $100 cashback or statement credit if you buy from Amazon.
As of a late 3/12/17 re-check, this sold out… The big picture of the various X-T2 options at the Stock Status tracker.
The Fuji X-T2 graphite body only is currently available (one unit) in Used / Open-box condition for $1619 with free shipping by Cameta Camera on eBay. The new condition price is $1800.
