Another one of the New Cameras of 2018 is in-stock and shipping, in two of the three colors, it’s the Fuji X-A5 with the 15-45mm kit lens at its starting price of $599 with free shipping by Amazon itself and Adorama and B&H Photo

Fuji X-T20 with 16-50mm and 50-230mm OIS II and Fuji Hand Grip and Various Extras for $1099

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. On top of that, Adorama has additional freebies included as well:

+ Lowepro 140 Format bag
+ 16GB Sandisk Extreme SD
+ 58mm Pro Optic Filter Kit and 58mm MC UV
+ Slinger soft lens case
+ new Corel Software Bundle (four “on topic” titles)
+ various other small accessories

On the other hand, as we just previously mentioned, you can get the X-T1 for $600 or X-T1 Graphite for $650 and their battery grip (actual battery grip, not hand grip) is only $100.

Fuji X-T1 Graphite Silver body down to $649, X-T1 Black for $599, Battery Grip $99

If you have a soft spot for the Fuji X-T1 Graphite silver edition, it is now down to $649 with free expedited shipping, in new condition at B&H Photo!

Meanwhile the standard black X-T1 body only is down to $599 with free expedited shipping. And the X-T1 with 18-55 goes for $899. On the same listing, you’ll also find the X-T1 with 35mm for $998.

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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

Mirrorless cameras just scored a second goal in 2018, giving them a 2-0 {corrected; I need a numeric keypad to type numbers apparently} lead over DSLRs in 2018.

Your pre-orders and purchases using our affiliate links help fund this blog which has very minimal advertising! If you want to help us keep going, then please consider making your purchases and pre-orders through our links here and in the sidebar and the Shop and Support page

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.

Fuji X-E2S with Fuji 14mm f2.8 and Metal Hand Grip and Manfrotto case for $849

The Fuji X-system has been around long enough for many generations of released cameras so that gives you more price flexibility if you are willing to buy previous generations models. One such is the Fuji X-E2S body only going for $429 on its own at B&H Photo and Adorama and Amazon itself

But what if you want to dive into the Fuji X system with an “old school take pictures with kit”? = a camera with a prime lens instead of a zoom lens; yes, I’m still making up terms as I go ๐Ÿ™‚

IF that’s the case, comes to the rescue by offering the Fuji X-E2S with 14mm f2.8 XR and Hand Grip (the Fuji MHG-XE metal hand grip) along with the Manfrotto NX shoulder case, all together for $849 with free expedited shipping.

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

Fuji X-E3 kits get Free Accessories Bundles

I am updating the Stock Status Tracker, with the addition of the Sony a7r III, but both the a7r III and Nikon D850 remain not in-stock…

But I’m also going through the other cameras and removing all the ones that have been steadily in-stock or had steady prices throughout. The Fuji X-E3 is one that fits this pattern, but it goes out with a parting shot. The prices remain the same but it getting free accessories with purchase, especially at Adorama where you get the Corel software bundle, a Lowepro Format 140 bag, a 16GB Sandisk Extreme SDHC card, a card reader, a card wallet, and the obligatory cleaning kit.

The X-T1 body only goes for $649 with free accessories at B&H Photo, while the X-T1 Graphite body goes for $749 at B&H Photo (with 4% promotional rewards) and Amazon itself.

Fuji X-A10 with 16-50mm drops to $350

Another big discount this week. Last week the Fuji X-A10 with 16-50mm was going for $500 [see Mirrorless Price Charts]. This week it is down to $350 with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon itself (limit 3) and B&H Photo (with free 32GB Extreme SD and Bag) and at Adorama.

This is certainly a nice price for a “take pictures with” kit as an entry-level entry-point in the Fuji X system. But the Fuji X system has been around for a while now, so you have more options in the used market if you prefer a more advanced camera. The Fuji X-T1 is in this ballpark used, but its new condition price dropped too this week, it is back down to $800 at B&H Photo. However a few weeks ago, Fuji had a promotion on the X-T1 at this price, with a free 35mm f2 lens. I do not know if they are planning to bring back this promotion for the holiday shopping season.

Meanwhile the Fuji X-A3 with 16-50mm remains at $550 (eg Adorama), just as it was last week. So reading the price change tea leaves, Fuji is encouraging shoppers towards the X-A10 at this time.

New Lens Instant Savings: Fuji, Tokina, Nikon, Canon, Zeiss

A number of new lens instant savings promotions are running at the moment! You can find them nicely organized at Adorama as follows:

+ Fuji X System: 58 options

+ Tokina (mostly Canon and Nikon): 17 options

+ Canon EF/EF-S lenses: 38 lenses and three flashes

+ Nikon F lenses: 9 options

+ Zeiss Batis and Loxia: 8 options

+ Panasonic M43 Lenses: 31 options

BUT that’s not all! There’s more instant savings from other manufacturers as well, rounded up separately: Pentax, Olympus, Rokinon, Samyang and of course Shiguma (Sigma).

(SOLD OUT) Used Fuji X-T1 body for $399 + S&H

As of a 11/16/17 AM recheck, this sold out at the $399 price. Supplies of used cameras are limited so they run out differently than new condition prices. Also prices are more volatile since they depend on more factors…

If you are comfortable with heavily used and scratched cameras that are still functional though, Adorama has the used Fuji X-T1 body only in “Used – Good” condition for $399 plus shipping (around $10) with a 90-day Adorama warranty and a 30-day return policy. If you don’t see it in the listings, it means it sold out since this was posted. Used supplies are typically limited.

The above may be of interest if you are looking for a non-entry-level entry into the Fuji X-system. On the other hand, if you prefer a “take pictures with” kit, the Fuji X-A10 with 16-50mm goes for $350 at various sellers including Amazon by Amazon itself (limit 3) and B&H Photo (with free 32GB Extreme SD and Bag) and at Adorama.

Used Fuji X-T10 body for $369

Price-checking has began again as I’m working on the Mirrorless segment of the Price Charts series.

Fuji has many X-cameras now. If your research and price points are pointing towards a used Fuji X-T10, there are a lot of options under $400 at the moment for the body only. Adorama and Green Mountain Camera are fighting for the $369 price point at Amazon Warehouse Deals in “Used – Like New” condition.

Meanwhile KEH Camera, which offers a 180-day warranty [factor that into the price since warranties cost money to offer] offers it for $379 plus shipping in “Used EX+” (Excellent Plus) condition. Or for $20 more for an “LN-” condition (LN = Like New).

Used prices of the X-T20 are almost twice as much at the moment.

Open-box Fuji X-E3 with 18-55 for $1149

Fuji X-PRO 2 body only with extras for $1500

The Fuji X-PRO 2 body only recently (not sure when) dropped from $1700 to $1500 at authorized dealers, and at the moment Adorama is bundling four freebies with it, the Corel software bundle, a 32GB Fuji SDHC card, a 24/7 Traffic Collection holster, and a cleaning kit. This too surfaced while doing the price-checking for the upcoming Price Charts series for this week.

One change for this edition, I am dropping the Leica cameras from the 35mm full frame chart to simplify things and make it more readable. There’s nine of them ranging from $4000 to $8000. More noise than signal ๐Ÿ™‚ They are staying in the Mirrorless and the other Price Charts. They are getting dropped only from the 35mm Full Frame chart because they are overwhelming it ๐Ÿ™‚
