We have just updated the Stock Status Tracker and we have some semi-good news, the Fuji X-T2 body only is semi in-stock. Let me explain. The camera shows as in-stock at the B&H Photo website but because they are closed for religious holidays, it will ship October 26 in 2016. The trade-off is whether you want to wait for a couple of weeks for it to arrive versus waiting to find it available right away.
As of early 10/11/16 re-check, these sold out… For the big picture check the Stock Status page…
As of the time of writing (10/11/16 at 12:25am ET), Adorama has both Fuji X-T2 in stock in limited quantities (marked as LOW STOCK) over there. The Fuji X-T2 Body Only goes for $1600 with free shipping, while the X-T2 with 18-55 goes for $1900…
PLEASE NOTE that I can’t stay up all night to update this when it sells out, so YMMV depending on when you check.

As of the time of writing, the PopFlash eBay store is offering the new condition Fuji X-T2 body only and VPB-XT2 Vertical Grip for $1928 with free shipping.

The Stock Status Tracker has just been updated. There was one Fuji X-T2 when I did the update, but by the time I wrote an alert-post here, it got scooped up (for reference, this is the now sold-out listing).
For some reason PopFlash lists their X-T2 cameras one at a time instead of all of them at once, so they may list more (if they have more). This pre-filled eBay search query searches for Fujifilm Cameras only in their eBay store.
Price-wise this kit is the same as buying the items separately, the X-T2 body only goes for $1600 on its own, while the VPB-XT2 Battery Grip goes for $329 on its own. The only difference is that they charge shipping and handling.
This sold out…

In mid-June, the new condition from authorized Fuji USA dealers Fuji X-T1 body-only went for $1000, but as of right now, it goes for $1300 (eg Amazon, B&H Photo). With the upcoming X-T2 body only having a starting price of $1600, perhaps Fuji is trying to herd/encourage new X-T buyers towards the X-T2. But if one is interested in the X-T1 specifically, perhaps the used or imported market may be of interest…
