Adorama has a super bundle but it remains at $1199 and includes the Fuji X-T20 with 16-50 and 50-230 and Fuji hand grip and Lowepro 140 and 16GB Sandisk Extreme and ProOptic filter kit, Corel software bundle, Lowepro lens case, and a few more lens-a-ccessories.
Despite the new Fuji Instant Savings, the Fuji X100F holds steady at $1300 in new condition at authorized dealers. If you are comfortable with USED condition though, the price has dropped to $1137~ in both colors, by Amazon Warehouse deals itself. Other 3rd-party sellers there have it for less but if you are not familiar with them, it’s a higher risk!
As usual, do pay attention to who the actual seller is. The price alone should not be the sole determining factor!
Sundays are the starts of new “shopping weeks” and promotions at retailers and also by manufacturers through their MAP-controlled “Instant Savings” promotions. This Sunday we have two new instant savings promotions going live, nicely organized by B&H Photo as follows:
+ Canon Instant Savings featuring five DSLRs and 13 lenses
+ in progress, I don’t think mentioned them before, there are some Panasonic Instant Savings, nicely organized at Adorama
If you had been waiting for the silver Fuji X-E3 with 23mm f2 R to get in-stock, you are in luck! The silver kit at its starting price of $1150 is in-stock and ready to ship at Amazon by Amazon itself with a limit of up to three units per customer.
If you prefer the black color scheme, it remains in-stock and shipping for $1150 at Amazon by Amazon itself.

New arrival! The black color scheme of the new Fuji X-E3 with the 23mm f2 R Fuji lens is now in-stock and ready to ship for its starting price of $1150 at Amazon by Amazon itself with a limit of up to three units per customer. Only the black color scheme is in-stock.
The Fuji X100, in new condition at authorized dealers, holds steady at $1300 as you can see at the just-updated Stock Status Tracker. Some mild discounting can be had if you are comfortable with these options:
+ Amazon Warehouse Deals USED condition prices start at $1180 for the black color scheme
+ Imported Grey Market X100 Black for $1246~ with free shipping by 6ave with a 1-year seller warranty [not Fuji USA warranty]
Some of the Fuji X-E3 kits (body only, and with 18-55) and color combinations are already in-stock at Amazon by various 3rd-party sellers, but if you prefer to buy camera gear from Amazon itself, we have good news for you, the silver color scheme of the Fuji X-E3 with 18-55mm is now in-stock and shipping for its starting price of $1300 at Amazon by Amazon itself. Limit three per customer.
For more cameras and such, check the Stock Status Tracker.
A number of Fuji X-E3 kits are now in-stock at their normal prices. As usual, situations can be kerfuflly on release day and supplies are often limited, so YMMV…
+ Fuji X-E3 body only (black) for $900 by Kenmore Camera (eBay) (one unit left)
+ Fuji X-E3 with 18-55mm (silver) for $1300 by PhotoCraft thru Amazon (four left)
+ Fuji X-E3 with 18-55mm (black) for $1300 by Kenmore Camera (eBay) (two units left)
+ the camera is also included in the Stock Status tracker
The Fuji X-E3 is estimated by Amazon to come out September 28, but you know how it is with estimates. So I have just added the X-E3 body only to the Stock Status Tracker. I will also keep an eye on the other two official kits, but the compromise made in order to add it to the Tracker without adding more overhead was to focus on the X-E3 body only.
The new Fuji X-E3 mirrorless camera (available in three different kits) is estimated to be in-stock around September 28 (2017), but keep in mind, as it is often the case with new camera releases in limited quantities, the dates can shift and change as time goes by!
We are still a couple of days away from the release giving you time to research this camera and alternative cameras/systems so you can make an educated decision before it rolls out.
PS: if you are an Amazon Prime member, AND you have either the Amazon Chase Prime VISA credit card or the Amazon Prime Store credit card, AND you pay for your order with it, you can get 5% back as a statement credit. However, if you are offered and accept any special 0% financing promotion with the Amazon Store Credit Card, you will not earn a 5% statement credit.
In a new “blessed by Fuji” bundle, you can now get the new condition Fuji X-T20 with the 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OIS II and 50-230mm f4.5-6.7 OIS II lenses and the Fuji Metal Hand Grip, all together for $1200 at authorized dealers.
But that’s not all! If you like the silver Fuji X-T20 bundle, Adorama is offering additional free accessories for the same price of $1200: Lowepro 140 bag, 16GB Sandisk SD card, 58mm Pro-Optic Filters kit, lens cap tether, memory card wallet, another 58mm MC UV filter, a Slinger soft lens case, and the Corel software bundle.
Likewise, Adorama offers the black X-T20 bundle with the same accessories and the same price of $1200.
Even if you don’t need the extra accessories, you can save them when you create photography gift bundles for your friends and family during the holidays or birthdays and graduations and such. Or you can donate them to a local school or art center.
If you are a fan of B&H, as of the time of writing, the black X-T20 bundle is in-stock and shipping at B&H Photo, but no additional freebies.
The party is sadly over for the Fuji promotion that got you a FREE 35mm f2R lens with the purchase of select Fuji X-T1 kits at authorized dealers. Not only that, but the price of the various camera kits went up as well…
I will be monitoring the situation and post new alerts if or when the promotion returns. I saved the entries from the Stock Tracker, so I can quickly re-add/re-use them if/when necessary…
As Star Trek taught us, all good things come to an end, and so did this limited time old-fashion sale, as of a 9/21/17 AM recheck…
Back to the Instant Cameras we go, where the white and red color schemes of the new condition Fujifilm Instax Mini 7S Instant Camera at Walmart by Walmart actual with free 2-day shipping or free store pickup.
Party’s over 🙁 As of a 9/17/17 recheck, the free lens promotion expired, AND the price of the X-T1 kits went up…
If you like instant film cameras in adorable pastel-y body colors, the new condition Fujifilm Instax Mini 9 Instant Camera is on sale for $57~ in some of its colors at Amazon by Amazon itself with a limit of up to three units per color per customer.
It averages 4.5 out of 5 based on over 410 customer reviews, and it has over 150 answered questions by Viewers Like You. This is an organic sale, not a lightning deal.
As of a 9/13/17 recheck, this sold out… For future updates, check the A Stock Status Tracker…
The silver color of the camera is available in open-box condition for $1169 with free shipping by authorized dealer Samy’s Camera (eBay). This defeats the used non-open-box prices at other retailers.
The new condition models are steadily in-stock for $1300 at various authorized dealers.
Mirrorless cameras just scored a goal, increasing their lead to 10-8! Fuji put in a new middlefielder that scored this goal [okay, time to abandon soccer/football analogies]…
Fuji has a new 24mp APS-C mirrorless camera in their X-System, it is part of the X-E series, it is the brand new X-E3, available in silver or black [but still not Raiders edition].
It will be available in three official kits as follows:
- BODY ONLY for $899
- with 23mm f2 for $1150
- with 18-55 for $1300
Keep in mind though, estimates are only estimates until or unless the cameras start shipping.
This reinforces the three Fuji X-System lines of X-T, X-E, and X-A.
It also juxtapositions this new camera with the existing Fuji X-T1 with FREE 35mm f2 promotion, at the moment giving the X-T1 an advantage in terms of both a lower price and a free lens included with it. [check the Stock Status Tracker for all the X-T1 options].
The last of the notable changes since our previous update is the Fuji X100F big sensor prime. Both B&H and Adorama are currently out of stock (but you can still order them), but other authorized and recognizable sellers have them in-stock for their standard price of $1300 as follows:
+ silver for $1125~ at Amazon Warehouse Deals by Amazon itself
+ black for $1137~ at Amazon Warehouse Deals by Amazon itself
And now we continue refreshing the Stock Status Tracker with some Fuji X-T2 body only action!
If you are comfortable with imported cameras with a warranty provided by the seller (not Fuji USA), you can get the new condition Fuji X-T2 in imported grey-market condition for $1450 by Deals All Year on eBay (99.8%, New Jersey).
On the other hand, if you prefer used cameras, you can get it in “Used – Excellent” condition for $1349 plus shipping (starts at $14, varies by zipcode) from Adorama which offers a 90-day warranty of their own and a 30-day return policy.
Meanwhile Cardinal Photo is offering it in “Used – Like New” condition for $1399 through Amazon Warehouse Deals. Not Prime eligible. The description says this is the X-T2 with 18-55 kit, with the 18-55 removed (and presumably sold separately).
Some sellers do this, by selling them separately, they can get a better price than selling the kit as is. This is because of the built-in discount of the official “with lens” kits. As long as sellers are upfront about it and are clear in the descriptions, giving people more options and more alternatives is good.
If, as an experienced photographer, you are looking for a “Take Pictures With” jump into the Fuji X-System, the Fuji X-T1 body only bundled with the FREE 35mm f2R WR Fuji lens now has picked up FREE accessories for the same price of $800 with free shipping at B&H Photo: a Watson extra battery, a 16GB Sandisk Ultra SDHC, and a Ruggard DSLR holster bag.
If you don’t need the extra accessories, for the same price, you can get it from B&H Photo with 4% promotional rewards. That’s about $32 to be spent in future purchases at B&H.
The X-T1 with 18-55 and 35/2 bundle, and the X-T1 Graphite with 35/2 remain in-stock at multiple retailers for $1200, but the body only bundle is only in-stock at B&H as of the time of writing.
But if you are comfortable with used cameras, you can get the silver color scheme in “Used – Very Good” condition for $874 [WAS $839~] with free shipping at Amazon Warehouse Deals by Amazon itself.
If you like to get the Fuji X-T1 body only with the FREE 35mm f2R lens in the black and silver combination, instead of the black and black combination, now the black X-T1 with silver 35mm f2 is orderable again from Amazon itself. The shipping estimate is “2 to 4 weeks”. Also orderable is the black X-T1 with black 35mm f2 with a similar estimate.
If you are a Prime member, and you pay with either the Prime Store credit or the Amazon Chase VISA credit card, you earn 5% as a statement credit on that particular credit card.
For the other X-T1 kits and other retailers, check the Stock Status Tracker.
Fuji may be more well known among photographers for their upper tier X-System mirrorless cameras and their X-series rawsumers, but they also make entry-level and enthusiast mirrorless cameras. One such camera is as of this check in-stock and shipping at various authorized dealers.
PS: speaking of Fuji, the promotion that gets you a free 35mm f2R WR lens with the purchase of select Fuji X-T1 kits continues. As of the time of writing, the X-T1 body only with the 35mm f2R for $800 is in-stock and ready to ship at B&H Photo. This is the hardest to find kit. The X-T1 with 18-55 and the X-T1 Graphite are readily available. See all the options in the Stock Status Tracker or the X-T1 with Free Lens posts here.
It’s back in-stock! X Temptations at your fingerprints! The new condition Fuji X-T1 body only with the Fuji 35mm f2R WR lens is back in-stock and ready to ship for $800 with free shipping at B&H Photo. The other tracked retailers are back-ordered or worse.
The Graphite and the with 18-55 kits remain in-stock as before ~ see them all at the Stock Status Tracker.

PS: I may end up adding this promotion to the Stock Tracker to make it easier to keep track of.
UPDATE: I added the Fuji X-T1 with the FREE 35mm f2R lens to the Stock Status Tracker.
As of this update, the X-T1 Graphite body only with the FREE 35mm f2R is in-stock with FREE Overnight shipping for $1000 at Adorama. The X-T1 body and X-T1 with 18-55 are orderable but not in-stock right now. More updates as things change…
The Fuji X-T1 body only kits bundled with the 35mm f2 R lens are orderable again at Amazon! They have two options for these, you can get the X-T1 body only with either the silver 35mm f2R lens or the black 35mm f2R lens. The price is the same $799 as the body only. Shipping is estimated between 2-5 weeks, so don’t buy it if you need it to arrive before a near term birthday or vacation and such. These are sold and shipped by Amazon.
For all the other options, check the previous X-T1 with free 35mm f2R lens posts.
As of a 8/17/17 recheck, the lower price is no longer available…
As of a 8/17/17 recheck, the $1103 price is no longer available…
The used Fuji X-T20 body only starts at $769, but if you prefer a “take pictures with” kit, then to the Fuji X-T20 with 16-50mm kit we go. This goes for $1000 in new condition at authorized dealers, but if you prefer used, as of the time of writing, these are the options:

The free-streaming Fuji X-T20 “Fast Start” class starts at 4pm ET today (Friday) and if that convinces you on the camera, its current situation is this:
The Fuji X-T20 body only is in-stock for $900 at multiple retailers, but if you are comfortable with used cameras, you can get it in used condition as follows:
+ “USED – Very Good” condition in BLACK for $769 at Amazon Warehouse Deals
+ “USED – Demo” condition for $819 at Adorama
PS: if you want the instructions or collect them (don’t judge!) you can get the X-T20 Instructions for $5 at KEH Camera (camera NOT included; only the printed instructions).
The promotion is still good! You still get a free Fuji 35mm f2 R WR lens with the purchase of select Fuji X-T1 camera kits at various Fuji authorized dealers. You can find them all waiting for you in our Fuji X-T1 Free Lens Promotion posts. Some remain in-stock, others are back-ordered but you can still buy them.

NEW CONDITION FUJI X100F
But if you prefer the new condition model at authorized dealers, fear not! It’s in-stock at multiple places at its normal price of $1300 as follows:
If you are interested in buying the Fuji GFX-50S medium format camera body-only kit in new condition, AND you have a serious DSLR or mirrorless or medium format camera you are willing to part with, Adorama has a Fuji GFX-50S Trade-In Promotion.
You can only trade-in one of the cameras listed in the aforelinked promotional page. They are serious cameras, for example, among Canons, it starts with the 6D and goes up to the 1D*; among Nikons it is D600 and up, among Sonys it is Sony a850/900, a7* and up, and so forth. Some medium format cameras are also eligible. See the complete list in this PDF file (direct link to PDF file).
I haven’t done this promotion, but based on the Promotional page, the steps are these:
- fill in your information in the Trade-In form
- send your used camera to Adorama
- after Adorama receives your used camera and evaluates it, they will send you:
- a check for the value of your used camera
- a coupon code that gets you $650 off the purchase of the Fuji GFX-50S
- using the coupon code, you can them purchase the GFX-50S for $650 off its current price
Four different color schemes of the Fujifilm Instax Mini 26 instant camera are bundled with a 10-pack of instant film, together going for $55 with free shipping by Amazon itself where they average 4.5 out of 5 based on 400+ customer reviews. This is not a lightning deal.
There are multiple new condition Fuji X-T1 with free 35mm f2 R WR lens promotions currently running, but if all you want is the X-T1 camera body and don’t want/need the 35mm f2 lens, you can go the used route for the X-T1 body only.
At B&H Photo prices start at $560 with free expedited shipping in 8+ condition.
At Adorama [page down to see the options] prices start at $539 plus shipping (over $10 for the slowest shipping method).
Both B&H and Adorama offer 90-day warranties of their own for used cameras they sell on their respective websites.
If you are a more high-risk shopper, at Amazon Warehouse Deals you can get it seller-refurbished for $480 by 6ave, or for $489~ in “Used – Good” condition by Amazon Warehouse Deals itself. There are no promises of warranty, but they have a return policy.
If you were tempted by the Fuji X-T1 Graphite but couldn’t justify the $200 more than the standard body only, this new promotion running right now that gets you a free Fuji 35mm f2 WR lens with purchase of select X-T1 kits may do the trick or help convince the Spouse C.F.O. With this promotion, $1000 gets you the new condition Fuji X-T1 Graphite body only along with the Fuji 35mm f2 R WR lens.
As of the time of writing, this combination is in-stock and ready to ship with FREE Overnight shipping at Adorama along with $40 in promotional rewards (to be spent in the future at Adorama). The free Overnight shipping promotion is shown on the product page as follows:
The same price and promotional rewards are available at B&H Photo with free standard shipping.
On the other hand, the shipping estimate is “ships in 1-2 months” at Amazon by Amazon itself
On the other hand, if you prefer to get the Fuji X-T1 with both the 18-55mm f2.8-4 R LM OIS lens and the 35mm f2 R WR lens (as part of the free lens promotion), and you want to receive it quickly, it is currently in-stock and ready to ship with free expedited shipping at Adorama along with 4% promotional rewards which come out to about $48 (to be spent in future Adorama purchases).
UPDATE: it is also in-stock for the same price and with 4% rewards at B&H Photo.
If you are an Amazon fan, it currently has the nebulous “ships in 1-2 months” estimate.
The Fuji X-T1 with the FREE 35mm f2 lens has propagated across the internets, and if you want to get it right now, the Fuji X-T1 body only with the silver 35mm f2 R WR lens is in-stock and ready to ship at Amazon by Amazon itself for $800 with free shipping. The kit with the black 35mm f2 lens is “Usually ships within 1 to 2 months”.
If you don’t want it immediately, you can get it for the same price with free accessories (Corel software, 32GB Lexar SD, extra battery, Lowepro bag, etc) at Adorama where it is in “Temporarily On Backorder” condition but you can still place an order and lock up the price.
PS: if you are a Prime member, one of the Prime Benefits is getting 5% back as a statement credit if you pay with either the Amazon Chase VISA credit card or the Amazon Prime Store card. It comes out to $40~ for this purchase.
The Fuji X-A3 with the 16-50mm lens goes for $599 at authorized dealers [see also the “Take Pictures With” section of the Mirrorless Price Charts], but for a limited time, an extra $100 can get you the two lens kit with the XC 50-230mm f/4.5-6.7 OIS II Lens for $699 total at B&H Photo. The offer is good for all three X-A3 body colors, but the 50-230mm lens is silver no matter what body color you select. The lens goes for $399 on its own.
But wait, there’s more! If you like some free accessories as well, Adorama includes a Lowepro shoulder bag, 16GB SD card, 58mm filter kit, Corel software and more for the same price of $699 in all three colors.
However, if you don’t want the 50-230mm lens, and you don’t want the extra accessories, and you are comfortable with used cameras, then:
CORRECTION: this is an f2, not f2.8 lens. The “R” confused me into thinking f2.8 🙂
Fuji temptation time! All four of the official Fuji X-T1 kits currently get a FREE Fuji 35mm f2 WR lens with purchase! The free lens will be included automatically by B&H Photo while this promotion is running. You know the promotion is running when you see the lens mentioned in the individual product page of each lens.
The four kits participating are the X-T1 body only for $800, the X-T1 with 18-55 for $1200, and the X-T1 with 18-135 for $1400. Also participating is the X-T1 Graphite body only for $1000.
But wait, there’s more! The free lens is also offered on some of the bundles with free accessories. The X-T1 Graphite Body for $1000 gets the 35mm f2 WR along with an extra Watson battery, a 16GB SD card, a holster bag, and a cleaning kit.
NOTE: some of the kits mentioned above earn 4% promotional rewards as well. Most of the kits that include free accessories don’t get 4% promotional rewards, except for the Graphite. Considering the price of the cameras, you can trade-off whether you want 4% to spend in the future or get the extra accessories. The free lens is included in all the kits while this promotion is running.
The Fuji X-T2 body only goes for $1600 in new condition at authorized Fuji USA dealers as you can see at the Stock Status Tracker but if you are comfortable with imported grey-market cameras…
… to the eBay Deals we go, where eBay seller “Deals All Year” (99.9%, New Jersey) is offering the new condition imported grey-market Fuji X-T2 Body Only for $1355 with free shipping and a 1-year warranty from the seller (not Fuji USA).
The Fuji X-T2 camera is not discounted. Camera manufacturer manufacturers are very protective of their price ranges in the MAP era after all. But if you happen to want to buy both the camera and its official battery grip at the same time, four of the four Fuji X-T2 kits are bundled together with the official Fuji VPB-XT2 Vertical Power Booster Battery Grip at B&H Photo at these prices:
+ X-T2 body with Grip for $1699
+ X-T2 w/18-55 and Grip for $1999
+ X-T2 w/35mm and Grip for $1996
+ X-T2 w/18-55 and 35mm and Grip for $2296
But wait, there’s more! The first two kits mentioned above (the two standard ones) are also offered at Adorama at the same prices, BUT Adorama includes additional freebies with purchase: 32GB Lexar SD, 24/7 holster bag, Corel software bundle, lens filter kit, and a few accesso-trinkets.
