Neewer 35mm f1.4 for Fuji X for $35 AC

I had opened way too many browser tabs for the previously-posted chinese manual budget lenses and when closing the tabs because the computer became unusable, I found a tab with this deal that is good for all, not just prime members.

It is a 30% off clip-on coupon, and it drops the price of the new condition Neewer 35mm f1.4 for Fuji X APS-C from $50 to $35. You can’t even buy Fuji-branded toilet paper for $35 😉

Pre-order the new Fuji X-T5 camera starting at $1700

Say what you will about Fuji’s APS-C cameras, but they look very …photographic! If you can’t resist that siren’s call, and you have $1700+ to spare, the new Fuji X-T5 is now available for pre-ordering with a November 17 estimated release date!

The body only goes for $1700, while the kit with the XF 16-80mm f4 R OIS WR goes for $2200, and the kit with the XF 18-55mm f2.8-4 R LM OIS WR goes for $2100. Zoom more for $100 more 🙂

For those who have not been paying particularly close attention, we are at the 40-megapixel X-Trans BSI sensor now, with Pixel Shift Multi-Shot getting you 160 megapixels. Focus points are growing too, now at 425 phase detection points 🙂 IBIS, yes, Idris Elba’s second cousin, now promises up to seven stops.

Burst mode goes up to 15/20fps, with the mechanical shutter promising half a million actuations. Battery promises up to 680 frames. Video is up to 6.2K. And on and on and on.

Pre-orders are available right now at B&H Photo and at Adorama

You owe it to yourself to live the Fuji shooting experience, but of course you don’t have to pay $1700+ for this camera – there are plenty of older models (KEH link) circulating in the market!

Curious about this camera? Here’s a 10-minute YouTube-embedded initial review by Dpreview Television:

The sale price is good on the M43rds, Fuji X, Sony E, Leica L, Nikon Z and Canon EF-M options. The Leica M however is decidedly NOT on sale ($449).

On a totally unrelated note (I don’t have anywhere else to put it in LOL), REI is having a name-brand clearance sale on past-season styles. Since I’m five seasons behind, past-seasons are new seasons to me 😉

Lenses are back at the Adorama daily deals. Just like B&H, Adorama will be closed for the Shavuot holiday until Tuesday 6/7/22.

I do not know if Adorama will have the same daily deals until then, or will change them. Only time will tell – the countdown clock on the daily deals page is for 24 hours…

In addition to the just announced X2Hs camera, Fuji has also revealed a couple of mainline/mainstream X-system XF lenses, and they are designed to make your wallet cry capture great photos 😉

+ XF 18-120mm f4 R LM PZ WR for $899 at ADorama and B&H Photo
+ shipping estimate is mid-September 2022

+ XF 150-600mm f5.6-8 R LM OIS WR for $1999 at B&H Photo and Adorama
+ shipping estimate is early July 2022
+ here’s a 4-minute overview by B&H:

Pre-order the new Fuji X-H2s for $2500

A very memorable memorial day for Fuji fans (it’s a self-writing pun!), as Fuji has officially announced their brand new X-H2s flagship camera with a 26mp stacked BSI X-Trans APS-C sensor, up to 7-stops of in-body stabilization, 6.2K/30P 3:2 aspect ratio, AI auto-focus, both SDXC UHS-II and CFexpress Type B, 15fps mechanical shutter (40fps electronic), both OLED EVF and vari-angle 3″ touchscreen (plus monochrome sky-facing LCD for settings), USB-C 3.2 Gen 2, full size HDMI, PC sync, uses the NP-W235 battery, etc, etc, etc…

The camera is available for pre-ordering for $2500 as a body only. It also has three “with lens” kits that bundle it with Fuji’s two T2.9 video-priority pro zooms. The third kit is with both T2.9 zooms. The prices are (of course) high (if you have to ask…).

Pre-orders are accepted at B&H Photo and at Adorama and such…Shipping estimate is early July 2022…

Here’s a 12-minute video overview of the camera by Jake Estes of House B&H:

Along with it are three H2S-dedicated accessories, a $199 camera cooling fan, and $399 VG-HX battery grip, estimated to ship along with the camera in early July 2022. There’s also a $999 file transmitter grip estimated to come out in mid-September (along with the new XF lenses)…

BUT that’s not all! Wooden Camera is also releasing a handful of H2S dedicated accessories (camera cages, etc). But they are also sneaking in a couple of general use adapters, PL lenses to either X-system bodies or GFX bodies…

PS: since the X-H2S uses the existing NP-W235 li-ion battery, if you want to save, for $30 you can get the B&H Photo Watson Li-Ion

Fuji X-E3 body for $499, w/23mm f2R for $749, w/18-55 for $799

Fuji’s X-system camera arsenal is now loaded with options. If of all the options it is the X-E3 the one you want, it is currently on sale at Amazon by Amazon itself as follows:

+ X-E3 body only for $499
+ X-E3 with 23mm f2R WR for $749
+ X-E3 with 18-55mm f2.8-4 OIS for $799

It is available in USED condition at Adorama but out of stock as used at KEH Camera

Refurbished Fuji X-T20 w/18-55 f2.8-4 R LM OIS w/90-day warranty for $670

A trio of factory reconditioned Fuji X-system cameras with a 90-day Fuji warranty can be found at the Woot $1 Million (or less) Gifts Sale good until 12/20/20 at 11:59pm central time or earlier if sold out…

We start with the middle of the three price-wise, the factory reconditioned Fuji X-T20 with 18-55mm f2.8-4 R OIS going for $670 with free US shipping for Prime members in the silver color scheme. Up to three per customer. With a 90-day Fuji warranty…

Again, plenty of choices in the X-system, both from above and from below. The benefit of this kit is that you get the 18-55mm f2.8-4 OIS lens, which, given the lack of competitive 3rd-party auto-focus zoom lenses, does not face a whole lot of competition for what it is…

PS: if you are a Prime member, you get free upgraded 2-day shipping (instead of free standard shipping) at Woot until 12/20/20 at 11:59pm central time [coincidence that they have the same expiration time]…

Refurbished Fuji X-T2 w/18-55 f2.8-4 R LM OIS w/90-day warranty for $850

Also part of the Woot sub-$1 million gifts sale you can get the factory reconditioned Fuji X-T2 with 18-55 f2.8-4 R LM OIS for $850 with free US shipping for Prime members and a 90-day Fuji warranty… Up to ten per customer…

This is where the trade-offs and options get even more confusing because at the top-end you have the X-T4 and X-T3 duo, and then you have the X-Tx0 options, so you can trade-off “generations” versus line-up standing…

It’s good to have options, but sometimes options come with bonus headaches 😉

Sale ends at 12/20/20 at 11:59pm central time or earlier if sold out…

Refurbished Fuji X-T100 w/15-45/3.5-5.6 OIS PZ XC w/90-day warranty for $380

One of the surprise deals under the Woot under $1 million Gifts (HA!) sale is the factory reconditioned Fuji X-T100 with XC 15-45 f3.5-5.6 OIS PZ with a 90-day Fuji warranty going for $380 with free shipping for Prime members…

It is available in two color schemes with up to three per customer… There are countless options in the Fuji X-system these days, so you can do all kinds of trade-offs especially if you are willing to buy/sell (eg buy MF budget primes and sell the 15-45 XC if you don’t want/need it)…

Fuji has avoided the confusion of all the other manufacturers as they are the only ones with just one system at one sensor size [yes I know but the medium format system is a professional niche, not a general purpose photography system]…

Sale ends at 12/20/20 at 11:59pm central time or earlier if sold out…

Neewer 35mm f1.7 manual focus lens for $50 [Fuji X only]
