As of a 12/31/14, this is gone again…
It is back in-stock, the blue Fuji X-A1 with the 16-50mm and 50-230mm lenses and 4% promotional rewards is going for $450 with free shipping at Adorama.
Thanks to one of our readers for the email alert! The red Fuji XF1 is currently going for $147 with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon itself with a limit of two. Earlier in the day, it was going for $129.
After nearly two weeks, we finally updated the Fuji X100T stock status page. Even more retailers now have the camera in-stock for its starting price of $1300 including Amazon itself and B&H Photo. Of the ones that have it in-stock, Adorama leads the bonus items with 4% promotional rewards (= $52). Of the well-known reputable online dealers, OneCall’s eBay store has some silver bodies in New-Other condition for $1200. The big picture at the Fuji X100T stock status page.
If you also need a zoom lens, the Fuji X-E1 with the 18-55mm lens is available in either black or silver for $700 with free shipping at B&H Photo. The lens goes for $600+ on its own, so this offer may also be of interest if you are interested in the 18-55mm lens. You are essentially getting an extra camera body for a few extra dollars.
Speaking of B&H, they now have both both Fuji X100T kits in-stock for $1300, along with the hand grip for $130. Interesting that Fuji priced the hand grip to be 10% of the price of the camera.
If you are interested in getting a Fuji X system camera body (X-E1 or X-M1 or X-Pro1) and you are also interested in the Fuji 18mm f2 prime lens, you can buy it together, in the same shopping cart, with the X camera body, and pay only $225 more for the 18mm f2 lens. This is because of a $300 combined purchase promotion. The price of the lens may change on its own. No expiration date is mentioned.
After a week, we just updated the Fuji X100T stock status page and we have some good news for the T-hunters! The camera is in-stock at major retailers, and we have the first wave of promotional freebies. Adorama has both the black X100T and silver X100T in-stock for $1300 with 4% promotional rewards. 4% of that is $52, which you can use on future purchases. Meanwhile Samy’s Camera is offering a free case… B&H Photo has the silver in-stock but no freebies at the moment… Check the Fuji X100T stock status page for the latest situation.
As of a 12/15/14 at 4:37pm ET, this promotion expired and the price went up to MSRP levels…
If you or anyone you know likes (or at least does not hate) blue cameras, we have another $50 discount on the blue Fuji X-A1 two-lens bundle at Adorama, you can now get it for $450 with free shipping: the X-A1 with 16-50mm and 50-230mm lenses, a free camera bag, a 16GB Toshiba SDHC, and 4% promotional rewards (=$18). Only the blue kit is discounted in this fashion.
The tall ships from Japan did not just bring in Fuji apples, they also brought in the new Fuji XF 50-140mm f2.8 R LM OIS WR lens, in-stock now for $1600 with free expedited shipping at B&H Photo.
PS: Fuji apple imports from Japan are probably not fruitologically accurate
We are hunting high and low! Now to a $15 accessory, the Fujifilm X-T1 EC-XT Extended Eye Cup is on sale for $15 at Amazon by Amazon itself (limit 3) and B&H Photo. Neither offers unconditional free shipping. At B&H, you need an order of $49 or more. At Amazon, you either need to be a Prime member or place an order of $35 or more.
Speaking of Prime memberships, the 32GB Amazon Fire Phone is on sale again, this time $230, unlocked, no-contract, and comes with a one year of Prime membership ($100 actual value), which can also be used to extend an existing Prime membership. [it was on sale for $200 during Black Friday weekend, then went up, now it is down again].
Adorama is offering this limited time bundle for $500 with free shipping: the blue Fuji X-A1 with the 16-50mm and 50-230mm lenses and free 16GB Toshiba SD card and 4% promotional rewards (= $20). Simply add to cart and checkout!… This combination is available for the same price but without the free SD and 4% promotional rewards at Amazon by Amazon herself.
We just updated the Fuji X100T Stock Tracking page and this is the current situation:
+ major retailers (Amazon itself, B&H, Adorama) are still out of stock
+ however other retailers have it in-stock for $1300, eg Onecall
If you are comfortable with used cameras and all the trade-offs that they entail, you can get the camera right now, going for around $1200 in the black at Amazon Warehouse Deals ($1200 by Cardinal Camera, $1208 by Amazon herself), and for $1208 in silver at Amazon Warehouse Deals ($1208 by Amazon itself)
The Fuji X100S with free flash offer ended at Adorama, but if you missed it and still want to get the black Fuji X100S for $850, you can get it at B&H Photo with a free 32GB Sandisk Ultra SDHC and Lowepro Shoulder bag. No free flash.
We just updated the Fuji X100T stock status page. The camera is harder to find since our previous update (some of the major retailers are still out of stock), however, you can still find it in-stock from reputable + authorized dealers, for example, the silver is going for $1300 from OneCall (the online version of Huppin’s store in the State of Washington).

We have another price drop on the Fuji X100S! You can get it for $850, with 4% promotional rewards and a free Fuji EF-20 flash automatically included at Adorama… Meanwhile the price also dropped to $850 at B&H Photo (no free flash but free 32GB SDHC and Lowepro).
This limited time offer expired… For future updates, check the Fuji X100T stock status page…
We finally updated the Fuji X100T stock status page and there is an interesting development, the camera is on sale for $1160 with free shipping by DigitalRev. The camera does not come with a Fuji USA warranty but DigitalRev offers what they call a Local Warranty where they either pay for the repairs or you send the camera to their global repair service center. The normal X100T price is $1300. There is a countdown on the sale at DigitalRev, if my time math is correct, it should expire by 12/1/14 at 11:59pm eastern.
If you are comfortable buying imported (grey market = no manufacturer USA warranty) digital cameras, the Fuji X100S can be yours for $685 with free shipping at Abe’s of Maine using coupon code LOYALTY15 ($15 off). Again, this is an imported model, you don’t get a Fuji USA warranty. If you are not sure what this means, do not buy.
