As of a 8/17/17 recheck, the $1103 price is no longer available…
The new update of the Stock Status Tracker has a new picture for the Fuji X100F.
USED FUJI X100F
In USED condition, the silver color scheme goes for $1099 + shipping at Adorama in “Used – Excellent” condition. Shipping starts around $13. Used items at Adorama come with a 90-day Adorama warranty and 30-day no-questions-asked return option. Keep in mind, used supplies are typically very limited so it may be sold out by the time you are reading this!
Next up in used prices are around $1200 at Amazon Warehouse Deals which may be too close to the new condition price for many people.
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:
The Panasonic LX10 compact with RAW currently goes for $598 at authorized dealers, but at the moment you can also get a boatlaod of freebies at Adorama: the Corel software bundle (five titles including three photo/videos), a 32GB Lexar PRO SDHC card, a Lowepro Dashpoint 20 bag, a memory card wallet, and a cleaning kit.
Also part of the Best Buy 2-DAY Sale is a promotion that gets you a $50 Best Buy Gift card and a 32GB SD card with the purchase of the Sony RX100 III or V at their regular prices of $750 and $1000 respectively. Sale ends Saturday night.
On the other hand, if gift cards don’t tempt you, and you are comfortable with open-box cameras, they are also available in open-box condition (without gift cards) as follows: the open-box RX100 III goes for $637 with free shipping, and the open-box RX100 V for $850 with free shipping.
For a refresher on RAWsumer price ranges, check the Fixed Lens Cameras Price Chart.
I just completed a full update of the Stock Status Tracker and the latest situation on the Fuji X100F is this:
+ as of 7/17/17 recheck, this SOLD OUT:
USED Fuji X100F Silver for $1100 at B&H Photo
The Canon G5X goes for $730 in new condition at authorized dealers (another one of the deals surfacing because of the Price Charts price-checking), but if you want to get it for less and you are not afraid of mail-in rebates and prepaid gift cards then…
… then to B&H Photo we go, where you can get the G5 X camera, along with the Pixma PRO 100 printer, and its SG-201 trusty sidekick paper (13×19″) for $650 after a $350 mail-in rebate (prepaid AMEX gift cards).
Canon currently has an elaborate G-series line-up, with all the odd numbers up to 10 included. All except for the G1X use 1-inch sensors. The G1X is a 1.5″. A total of six active models are currently available (because the G9X has two generations available).
PRO TIP on mail-in rebates: if the mere mention of a mail-in rebate has you changing colors and dropping your last meal on the floor, you may want to avoid them! You can get some really good deals, but if you really hate the idea of doing and dealing with mail-in rebate issues, you may want to prioritize your ease of mind over the deal 🙂
The Canon G9X (first generation) goes for $400 on its own, but if you are not a afraid of mail-in rebates and prepaid AMEX gift cards, and you need the Pixma PRO 100 printer and its trusty side-kick the SG-201 13×19″ photo paper, you can get them all together for $400 after a $350 mail-in rebate (prepaid AMEX gift card) at B&H Photo.
It’s the rise of the machine! The Amazon Price Bots are at it again, they have price-matched a 3rd-party seller, so currently the Ricoh GR II Big Sensor Prime is going for $569 with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon itself. Limit three per customer. Shhhh, don’t tell the grown-ups 🙂 It currently goes for $659 at B&H and Adorama.
On the other hand, if you are fond of used cameras, used prices start at $479 plus shipping at Adorama.
PS: the $109 used price at Adorama is a much older model with a similar name, it is a 10mp 1/1.75″ CCD camera from way back.
I am currently price-checking cameras for the “Fixed Lens Cameras” Price Chart, and there are a couple of Panasonic 1-inch cameras with extras that are going for $648 with free shipping each, at Adorama.
The Panasonic LX10, the current “deputy” of the famed LX-series, is bundled with the Corel Software Bundle (five titles, three of which are photo/video), a 32GB Lexar SD card, a Lowepro DP 20 camera bag, a memory card wallet and a cleaning kit for the same authorized dealer price of $648.
Likewise, the ZS100 superzoom goes for the same price, in silver or black color schemes, and is bundled with the Corel Software Bundle (five titles, three of which are photo/video), a 16GB Lexar SD card, a Lowepro DP 30 camera bag, a Sunpak FlexPod Pro gripper thingy, a memory card wallet, and a cleaning kit.
I just updated the Stock Status Tracker and this is the situation with the Fuji X100F Big Sensor Prime:
The silver Fuji X100S Big Sensor Prime has been harder to find in-stock for $1299 at recognizable online retailers, but as of the time of writing, two sellers have it in-stock and shipping for $1299, Kenmore Camera on eBay (one left) and Best Buy on eBay (limit three per buyer).
For the big picture, check the Stock Status Tracker.
The Canon G9X goes for $400 in new condition with various free accessories (eg Adorama) but it also has to contest with the Canon G9X II which goes for $430. So in other words, if you want to get the first generation model, you may as well go the refurbished route…
… because the refurbished first generation Canon G9X is on sale for $299 with a free neckstrap and a free camera case and a 1-year Canon warranty at the official Canon USA Outlet store in either the black or the brown color schemes.
Don’t you forget about us sing the RAWsumers, and to those cameras we go where the Sony RX 100 Mark V has three freebies at B&H Photo while selling at the authorized dealer price of $998: a $50 B&H Photo gift card, a 32GB Sandisk Extreme SDHC memory card, and a Ruggard camera case.
And now we have updated the Fuji X100F segment of the Stock Status Tracker. The black X100F is out of stock everywhere at $1300, but some places sell it with the usual “limited availability premium”.
However, we have good news for the silver X100F. It is in-stock and ready to ship for $1300 by Best Buy (eBay) with a limit of three per buyer.
Also, if you are a fan of eBay auctions, one individual (100%, West Virginia) has an eBay AUCTION for this. It is currently at $920 with 28 bids and the auction closed on Thursday at 9:25pm ET. The condition is USED with 280 shutter actuations. Half a dozen pictures of the actual camera are also included in the listing.
This is an older post. A newer post with newer updates has been posted…
If you are interested in the Fuji X100F, as of this Stock Tracker update, the situation is this:
It is pure coincidence that I’m updating the Stock Status Tracker on Mondays, it’s supposed to get updated a lot more often, but time seems to fly faster and faster these days. Anyway, enough meta-talk, to the Fuji X100F-landia we go…
… where the Best Buy’s eBay store has the silver X100F in-stock for $1300. Limit three per buyer per the listing page.
On the black X100F front, Amazon itself has a May 18 in-stock estimate as of the time of writing. Keep in mind these estimates change over time…
If you are a Prime member and pay with either the Chase Amazon VISA credit card or the Prime Store credit card, you will receive 5% back as a statement credit, which is no small change, it is $65~ given the current price.
If you are not a Prime member, and you pay with the Chase Amazon VISA credit card you get 3% back as a statement credit, around $39. Citibank’s Forward credit card used to offer 5% on Amazon, but unless you are in a grandfathered card that wasn’t switched over, they no longer offer it (as far as I can tell).
On the other hand, if you are a fan of buying used from eBay, an individual has a USED (eBay Auction) that ends on Tuesday at 10:30pm ET. As of the time of writing, the auction price is $1125 with 29 bids. Shipping is $12 from the state of MA.
The brand new Fuji X100F is slowly getting released for $1300 [see Stock Status Tracker] but if it’s the X100T the one you want, it currently goes for $1100 bundled with a Rode VideoMic Pro R Mic for $1099 with free shipping at Adorama and B&H Photo.
Or if you are a Prime member paying with either the Amazon Chase VISA or the Prime Store card, you can get $55 back as a statement credit thru Amazon.
This auction ended with someone scooping it up towards the end, 15 bids and a $1200 price…
If you need some eBay auction entertainment/excitment, ending today at 12:08pm ET is a classic eBay auction by an individual seller on the Fuji X100F silver. As of 10:55am ET, there are 14 bids with a $1175 price. The individual eBay seller (100%, 65 ratings) is based in Los Angeles.
This used option sold out as well:
There is a “Used – Like New” option for $1202 by Amazon Warehouse Deals with a detailed condition and half a dozen pictures of the actual item (click on one of the two thumbnails to see the gallery).
The new condition price of the X100F at authorized dealers is $1300. For more options, check the Stock Status Tracker where there is one retailer that has both colors for $1300. The listing says they ship from the USA, but the seller’s page says they are in Hong Kong. I haven’t tried to go through with a purchase to see what happens [poor blogger!]
If you had been looking for the black Fuji X100F, rejoice! It is currently in-stock for its starting price of $1300 at Amazon by Amazon itself. At the moment this is restricted to Prime members only.
Meanwhile, if you are a more adventurous shopper and love eBay auctions, an individual eBay seller started an auction on the silver Fuji X100F starting at $900. The auction ends on Monday at 12:08pm eastern time.
For the big picture, check the Stock Status Tracker.
I’ve fallen behind on stock updates, so I don’t know when this became in-stock, but the Fuji X100F Big Sensor Prime is now in-stock and ready to ship at its starting price of $1300 at Amazon by Amazon itself with a limit of up to three units per customer.
PS: if you are a Prime member, and you pay with either the Amazon Chase VISA or the Amazon Store Credit card, you get 5% back on your purchases as cashback or a statement credit. In this case, 5% of this is $65, not a small amount!
PS2: if you have an Amazon Store credit card, you may be offered a 12-month 0% APR financing promotion as long as you pay it in full in 12 months. The financing offer cannot be combined with the 5% statement credit, so you have to pick one or the other. The shopping cart will guide you through it if eligible.
To the Big Sensor Primes front we go now, where the new condition Ricoh GR II is currently on sale for $600 with free shipping at B&H Photo. Orders can be placed again Wednesday night. Orders will ship on April 19+ regardless of shipment method selected, so keep that in mind.
B&H also has it available in Used Condition for $500 with free shipping. Used items sold by B&H Photo come with a 90-day warranty covered by B&H.
The Big Sensor Primes are alive and kicking too, and Fuji has an instant savings price cut on the Fuji X-100T, making the price $1100. You can get it in Silver with two different options:
Meanwhile the black color scheme of the X100T gets 4% promotional rewards, but there is no free microphone option.
All of the above X100-T options are priced at $1100 with free shipping, regardless of the freebies.
RAWsumer action! The black color scheme of the Panasonic LX100 (aka the LX100K) is currently on sale, in new condition, for $560 with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon itself. Limit up to three units per customer. This is not a lightning deal.
For other Amazon sales that are not lightning deals, check the Elsewhere at Amazon sections of the lightning deal round-ups.
On the “Compacts avec RAW” front, the new condition Canon G9 X is now on sale for $399 with free expedited shipping at B&H Photo which also includes a free Watson branded extra battery and 2% promotional rewards to be used in a future B&H purchase. The offer is good for black or brown.

The Canon G series is back in full force, and with the second generation unleashed, there are many and more options, especially if you are willing to consider the refurbished and used markets. One of those options is bundled with a handful of accessories at Adorama, it is the Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II with the Corel Software Bundle (three titles of camera/photo interest), along with a 32GB Sandisk Ultra SDHC card, a 24/7 TC camera pouch, a USB stick-style card reader, and the obligatory cleaning kit.
PS: Adorama should have a contest to see which one of their regular customers has collected the most Cleaning Kits through the years 🙂
If you want to try out the Sony RX100 series without breaking the bank, and if you are comfortable with used cameras, you can get the first generation Sony RX100 in “Used – Condition 8+” for $280 at B&H Photo.

To compare, the new condition prices for $400 for the 1st generation, $550 for the 2nd generation, $700 for the 3rd generation, and $850 for the 4th generation, and $1000 for the 5th generation, at authorized Sony USA dealers. Notice a pattern?
SPOILER ALERT: It’s the +$150 price staircase 🙂

Staying with the reborn G-line, Canon also announced a G7X II Video Creator’s Kit available for pre-order for $750. What makes it so not as generous as some of the DSLR kits that include Rode mics, but rather you get a Manfrotto PIXI Mini tabletop tripod, an extra battery, and a 32GB SDHC card.
