New Fuji X-System Instant Savings (Cameras, Lenses, MF, RAWsumers)

If you are mesmerized by the Fuji X-system, you are in luck and your wallet is potentially in tears as there’s a new round of Fuji Instant Savings running at B&H Photo that includes both camera kits and lenses on their own. Fuji cameras may be easier to adapter-use 3rd-party lenses on, but for fans of native AF lenses the options are fewer than other mirrorless systems, which keeps the Fuji lens prices without a lot of competition. People are not even willing to let go of the kit lenses when selling the cameras 🙂

The sale includes the X-T30 with the 15-45 and freebies for $999, the 16-55 f2.8 lens with freebies for $900, and so on… Too many camera kits (X-T200, X-E3, X-A7 in the adorkable mint-green color scheme, etc) and lenses to list here individually…

In addition to those, the sale also includes some of the Fuji medium format gear along with their fixed-lens compact cameras (aka RAWsumers)… There’s also a couple of stray Finepix P&S cameras (of the water/elementproof kind)…

Fuji GFX50R Medium Format Body Only for $3500 [or $2800 USED]

Or if you prefer to go the way of THE USED [no, not the whiny emo music group], you can get it in USED – Condition 9 for $2800…

A new round of Fuji instant savings is up and running at Adorama with a total of 26 options available, including a FREE Fuji VG-XT3 battery grip with the purchase of select Fuji X-T3 kits. Some options are bundled with free accessories as well. Some kits include a Fuji flash. And on page #2 of the offers you can find instant savings of the Fuji GFX kind (camera kits and lenses)

Fuji has official announced their all new X100V big sensor prime with a 26mp APS-C X-Trans sensor and a new 23mm f2 Fujinon lens (glued to the camera of course). The pre-order price is $1399 and the camera is estimated to be released on March 31st in 2020…

Pre-orders are accepted at B&H Photo and Adorama and Amazon itself

Also offered for pre-order is the official Fuji case for said camera for $80…

Fuji Instax Mini 9 + $5 GC + 10 exposures for $50

For those with the instant camera bug, the Fuji Instax Mini 9 is currently on sale for $50 and you can get it at B&H Photo bundled with a $5 B&H Photo gift card and 10 exposures of Rainbow film in three of the camera’s color schemes…

On the other hand, if you are a fan of Tarjay, you can get it with a $15 Target gift card but no free exposures at Target online and also at their B&M stores…

Fuji X-T30 body for $799, with 15-45 for $849, w/18-55 for $1099 WITH Extras and Fuji Metal Hand Grip

And now it’s Adorama’s turn to have a blockbuster, they are offering a FREE Fuji metal hand grip with the purchase of various Fuji X-T30 kits at their Black Friday sale prices. The free grip is included automatically with your order (while this promotion is running) by Adorama.

The prices are:

+ X-T30 with 15-45mm for $849

+ look for kits with other lenses over there as well

On top of this, there are kits with extra free accessories (cards, filters, bags, etc), so check the listings to find the best kit that fits your needs…

The prices are the same, with some free accessories but no free Fuji metal hand grip at B&H Photo and Amazonia

Used Fuji X-A5 with 15-45mm XC for $337 [Prime Deals]

Another potentially interesting offer in the Warehouse 20% off promotion that is part of the ever-expanding Prime Day(s) deals…

We go back to X-Landia where the “Used – Like New” (original packaging; not even damaged packaging) Fuji X-A5 with 15-45mm XC goes for $337~ in the brown color scheme with multiple listings by Amazon Warehouse Deals itself ~ look for them as the seller ~ as explained in our earlier post which feels like it was written three days ago (but it was just 8 hours ago) 🙂

The other two Fuji X-A5 color schemes don’t appear to be participating in the promotion (but I didn’t try it in the shopping cart)…

Used Fuji X-T20 with 18-55/2.8-4 R OIS for $629 [Prime Deal]

The Warehouse Deals 20% off promotion for Prime members has another Fuji temptation, this time of the X System kind. The Fuji X-T20 with the 18-55 f2.8-4 R OIS lens goes for $899 in new condition at authorized dealers, but PRime members, thanks to the 20% off in-cart discount, can get it for $629 in “Used – Like New” condition (damaged original packaging) by Amazon Warehouse Deals itself

With the Fuji X-T30 being the “latest model”, going for $899 body only and $1299 with the 18-55 lens , it is not unreasonable to go used for the “previous generation” model.

Used Fuji X100F (Black) for $802 [Prime Deal]

From the blast to the past we now move on to something more modern, also made possible by the Warehouse Deals 20% off promotion for Prime members. The new condition Fuji X100F Big Sensor Prime goes for $1300 at authorized Fuji dealers…

… but IF you are a Prime member and you are willing to go “The Way of the Used”, you can get the black Fuji X100F color scheme in “Used – Very Good” (damaged original packaging) for $802~ by Amazon Warehouse Deals itself. Look for them as the seller in the listings. The other two X100F colors go for less by AWD itself but they don’t show the 20% off discount [I haven’t tested them in the shopping cart to be 100% certain they are not eligible for the discount]…

If you are not a Prime member but are very tempted by this offer, all you have to do is start a 30-day Free Trial and you can buy it within seconds…

Fuji X-H1 body only for $1200

It’s an interchangeable lens camera offered in the Prime Day deals of 2019! It is the new condition Fuji X-H1 body only going for around $1200 by a trio of recognizable camera sellers through amazon.com: Green Mountain Camera, and The Pixel Collection and Green’s Camera World. These ship directly from the sellers but get Prime-like free shipping [they are not however “fulfilled by Amazon” ~ it is a lesser known Prime Benefit).

When you are logged on with a Prime account and add it to the shopping cart, the price will drop in the shopping cart.

In-Stock Alert: Fuji X-T30 Body for $900, with 35mm f2 for $1000

Fuji X fans, unite and open your wallets 🙂 The new X-T30 camera is now in-stock and shipping for its starting price of $900 as body only in the silver and black color schemes at Adorama… If you want a “take pictures with” kit, B&H Photo is offering it with the 35mm f2 lens for $1000 in the silver color scheme… Meanwhile amazon.com has a March 27 release estimate for itself, but there’s also plenty of 3rd-party sellers over there. With many colors and kit options, this is quite an adventure sorting them all over there…

Used Fuji X-T1 body with EF-X8 Flash for $379

IF you are looking for a budget entry but with an advanced camera in the Fuji X System, currently KEH Camera is offering the Fuji X-T1 body only with the EF-X8 flash, together bundled for $379 in “EX” condition and with a 180-day warranty. This is the black color scheme, not the graphite.

IF you prefer a new condition without a warranty, Massdrop is offering the X-T1 body only without the EF-X8 flash, for $500.

Needless to say, Fuji has unleashed a number of X-system cameras, so there are many choices out there, enough to give you a three tylenol headache 😉

PS: if you haven’t visited KEH recently, they have remodeled/modernized their web user interface…

Fuji X-A3 with 16-50 OIS II for $290

On the other hand, if you are curious about the Fuji X system, and just want a foothold into it without breaking the bank, Adorama is offering the new condition Fuji X-A3 with 16-50 II OIS for $290 with free shipping. That is amazeballs for a “Take pictures with” kit ~ considering we were paying $2000+ for an APS-C camera at the start of the previous decade ^_^

This too is part of the Adorama curated daily deals

Fuji X-H1 body with Battery Grip and $500 GC for $1949

Adorama has a new round of expanded and curated daily deals and the headliner of this group is something of interest to Fuji X fans, it is this Fuji X-H1 body with Power Booster Kit bundled with a $500 (yes, five hundred) Adorama gift certificate going for $1949…

So assuming you have no problem spending the $500 Adorama gift certificate on things you want/need, that’s beating the X-H1 body only (without the power booster grip) which currently goes for $1649 on its own (eg B&H Photo and Amazon….

The promotion is available on four different color schemes of the camera, with up to three per color per customer. I’m not sure if it’s an overall limit of three, or three per color.

Imported Fuji X-T2 body only for $880 [w/18-55 for $1200] {MD}

The shopping website that is Massdrop has launched their very own Black Friday sales. OF camera and photo interest, they are offering the new condition Fuji X-T2 body ohly for $880. You can optionally add the 18-55mm f2.8-4 R XF OIS LM lens for $320 more [$1200 total].

NOTE that there is no mention of warranty in the listing, so assume this is an imported/grey-market with no warranty. Orders will be shipped in mid-December 2018 from Massdrop. There’s no option for expedited shipping.

In comparison, in new condition at authorized dealers the X-T2 body only goes for $1100, such as B&H Photo and Adorama and Amazon. So that’s a difference of $220.

At the aforementioned places, the X-T2 with 18-55 kit goes for $1500, versus $1200 of Massdrop.
