USED Update: Panasonic G9 for $1409, Fuji X-H1 for $1662

Today’s update of the Stock Status Tracker has no new news on the Sony a7 III and Nikon D850 fronts, but we have new lower USED prices of two other cameras that have been steadily in-stock…

The USED Panasonic G9 is now down to $1409 in “Used – Condition 9” at B&H Photo. The new condition price is $1700 but comes with the official Panasonic battery grip at select authorized dealers, thus pushing USED prices down…

Meanwhile the Fuji X-H1 body only is down to $1662 in “Used – Very Good” condition by Amazon Warehouse Deals (cosmetic imperfection; damaged original packaging)

Used Fuji X-H1 body for $1576

An early bird update of the Stock Status Tracker continues to have the Sony a7 III and Nikon D850 as not in-stock, while the Pentax K-1 II remains steadily in-stock. The biggest development is a new low price on the USED Fuji X-H1 body only, you can get it for $1576 with free shipping in “Condition 9” at B&H Photo

Used Fuji X-H1 body only for $1662

The new condition Fuji X-H1 body only remains steady at its starting price of $1900 as you can see at the just-updated Stock Status Tracker, but if you are a fan of used camera purchases, we have good news for you. The used Fuji X-H1 prices have dropped as follows:

+ Amazon Warehouse Deals for $1662 in “Used – Very Good” condition (minor cosmetic imperfection on camera body, damaged original packaging, has three pictures)

+ B&H Photo for $1670 in “USED – Condition 10” or $1709 in “Open Box” condition

+ Adorama for $1699 in “Used – Demo” condition

Imported Fuji X-T2 body w/1-YR Seller W for $1120

The new condition Fuji X-T2 body only goes for $1600 at authorized Fuji USA dealers such as Adorama and Amazon but if you want to pay less and you are comfortable with grey-market…

… then to the eBay Deals we go where ebay seller “6ave” (98.5%) is offering the new condition grey-market imported Fuji X-T2 body only with a 1-year seller warranty for $1120 with free shipping. Maximum three per customer at the sale price.

Price goofiness with the Fuji X-T20. The body only goes for $900 and that’s also the price for the kit with the 16-50mm lens. But add $200 to that, and you also get the Fuji XC 50-230mm (76-350mm) F4.5-6.7 OIS II Lens (which goes for $400 on its own), along with the Fuji Metal Hand Grip.

But that’s not all! The Fuji VG-XT1 Vertical Battery Grip goes for $99 with free expedited shipping at B&H Photo after you “add to cart”. No need for login song and dance, you just have to press the add-to-cart little thing.

This is a classic case of the trade-offs between getting the “latest generation” model versus the “previous generation”. But in this case, for the price of an X-T2, you can get two X-T1 Graphite body onlies AND two battery grips 🙂

Fuji X-T2 Body Only for $1499 w/free S&H

The Fuji X-T2 body only currently goes for $1600 at B&H, Adorama and such, but as of the time of writing, you can get it for $1500 with free shipping by BuyDIG directly or by Beach thru Amazon. $1500 was its price in the November 2017 Price Charts.

Speaking of Fuji, a number of Fuji X-cameras, including the brand new X-H1 pre-orders get a FREE Domke-Fuji F803 camera bag.

First Fuji X-H1 deal arrives: FREE Domke F-803 Camera Bag

We have the first Fuji X-H1 deal already, shortly after I posted the Fuji X-H1 pre-order round-up. The first deal is this: if you pre-order it at Adorama, either as the body only for $1900 or with the battery grip for $2200, you will automatically receive a FREE Domke Fuji cobranded F-803 camera bag. You will get this for free as long as this is mentioned in the individual product page over there! Here’s a screenshot to make sure I did not hallucinate 🙂

If the promotion rings a bell, that’s because this promotion is already in progress for other Fujis (X-T2, X-PRO2, select lenses).

Pre-order new Fuji X-H1 Camera and Battery Grip and Lens Bundles

We begin the Pre-Order-a-palooza that was promised with some of the new cameras and lenses that were officially announced this week, starting with the new flagship of the Fuji X-system, the new X-H1, with an in-body image-stabilization to boot! This is the fifth new mirrorless camera revealed in 2018 [see New Cameras of 2018 tracker], giving Mirrorless cameras a commanding 5-0 lead over Team DSLR.

FUJI X-H1 BODY ONLY
The Fuji X-H1 body only is available for pre-ordering for $1900 at Adorama and B&H Photo and Amazon by Amazon itself with a March 1st release estimate. Do note however that estimates are only estimates and they change over time!

BATTERY GRIP for FUJI X-H1
A flagship camera is not a flagship without a dedicated battery grip, and the X-H1 is getting the Fujifilm VPB-XH1 Vertical Power Booster Grip for $329, available for pre-ordering by Amazon itself and Adorama and B&H Photo.

There is also a pre-order option for the X-H1 bundled with the battery grip with a $30 combo discount, $2199 instead of $2229 🙂

FUJI X-H1 bundled with PRO LENSES
What if you also want a pro lens to go with the new X-H1? Fuji has created bundles with three of their existing X system pro lenses [not the new T2.9 cinema lenses] as follows:

+ X-H1 with 16-55mm for $2949
+ X-H1 with 50-140mm for $3349
+ X-H1 with 100-400mm for $3649
+ the above kits are also available with the official battery grip for +$300

You can find all these options at the organized product announcement pages at B&H Photo and Adorama and the search results at Amazon.

Pre-order new Fuji T2.9 Zoom Cinema Lenses for X System

If you are a fan of cinematography and the Fuji X system, Fuji has two new propositions for you, their first two Cinema lenses for the X-system. These are T2.9 zoom lenses, and they are available for pre-order as follows:

+ MKX 18-55mm T2.9 for $4000 at Adorama and Amazon itself and $4100 at B&H Photo

+ MKX 50-135mm T2.9 for $4300 at B&H Photo and Adorama and Amazon itself

These two new T lenses too have been added to the New Lenses of 2018 tracking page.

Preorder new Fuji X-H1 flagship camera

Fans of in-body camera image stabilization are now cheering another convert to the cause as the brand new Fuji X-H1 flagship camera has an in-body image stabilization that promises up to 5.5 stops if the stars and the lenses align (multiple puns intended).

Despite the H in the name, this remains an APS-C camera, not an APS-H camera.

The new Fuji X-H1 has a starting price of $1899 and it is available for pre-ordering at Adorama and B&H Photo and Amazon by Amazon itself.

Fuji is also offering combined purchase discounts if one orders the camera with one of three Fuji pro lenses (their two f2.8 zooms or the 100-400). Details on the individual product pages above.

But that’s not all! Coming along with it are two Fuji Cinema T zoom manual lenses. Fuji is after all no stranger to cinema lenses. You can see all the new items available for pre-ordering at the new announcement pages at Adorama and B&H Photo. Amazon doesn’t have advanced technology like that, but you can see most of them in their search results

Pre-order new Fuji X-A5 with 15-45 XC PZ OIS for $600

The included lens is brand new from Fuji, and it is also available for pre-ordering separately for $300. For photographers who may want the lens only, it is may still be a better value to get the X-A5 kit and then sell/trade/gift the camera if you don’t want/need it or fall in love with it. Or wait until other people do this and buy the lens in the used market or the trade/exchange section of your favorite photo forums…

This too has been added to the New Cameras of 2018 tracking page.

If you are a fan of Prime lenses made by non-mainstream lens manufacturers, the membership website MassDrop is offering the new condition Kamlan 50mm F/1.1 APS-C Prime Lens for $130 with free shipping for USA shoppers. Shipping is extra for non-USA shoppers. The lens is available in Canon EF-M, Fuji X, M43rds and Sony E. You select the option at checkout. It comes with a 1-year warranty. All sales are final. These will ship in late January 2018. There is no express shipping option!

If you are not familiar with MassDrop, think of them as a group buy shopping club. You have to create an account (free to join, no annual/membership fees) to see the prices and details of a product. Orders do not ship right away like Amazon. It’s the opposite of Prime. Orders can take weeks to months before they ship because of the nature of group buys. Sales are final. Some items come with a manufacturer warranty, others don’t. Some are purchased directly from the manufacturer, others through third parties.

If you hate waiting, then mayhaps it’s not for you. You can instead go for near-instant gratification with the B&H FREE Next Day delivery of various products 🙂
