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…
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, 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.
For the big picture, check the Stock Status Tracker or the posts here for the free lens promotion.
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.

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.
This new promotion is helping various X-T1 kits climb to the top of the New Mirrorless Releases at the Amazon best selling lists.
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.
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.
A similar set of freebies is included with the X-T1 body only for $800, and so is the X-T1 with 18-135mm for $1400.
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.
