Fujifilm Deals

You've asked me to post when there are strong deals going on mirrorless products, so here's one such post.

Fujifilm has posted discounts on quite a bit of their lineup, including the recent GFX 50S medium format camera and lenses.

Let's start with the GFX 50S: if you buy a body with a lens (any of the six currently available), you'll get a US$1000 discount. So the camera with a standard lens now works out to about US$7000. Still priced well above the high-pixel count full frame DSLRs and mirrorless cameras, but well under the price we're used to for medium format. I haven't reviewed the GFX 50S yet, but it's in the queue.

GFX lenses sold alone all have an approximately 20% discount on them at the moment, as well.

Meanwhile, almost all of the APS-C bodies are either US$50 off (A series) or US$100 off (pretty much the rest of the line), with the X-Pro2 being US$200 off when purchased with the 23mm lens. The most recent X-E3 is not discounted, however.

Of this group, the likely body to catch the most interest is the X-T20, which is now US$800 with the discount. The X-T2 is US$1500, but many won't find a US$700 difference between the T's, and thus be somewhat interested in that X-T20 at that low price.

Lenses all get a discount, too:

  • US$50 off: 18mm f/2, 27mm f/2.8, 35mm f/1.4, 60mm f/2.4 macro
  • US$100 off: 10-24mm f/4, 14mm f/2.8, 16mm f/1.4, 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6, 23mm f/1.4, 56mm f/1.2, 55-200mm f/3.5-4.5, 90mm f/2 macro
  • US$150 off: 16-55mm f/2.8, 50-140mm f/2.8, 56mm f/1.2APD, 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6

Yeah, that's a lot of APS-C lenses on sale. Take that, Nikon (buzz, buzz ;~). I've highlighted in bold the lenses that at these prices I would be strongly considering if I were a Fujifilm user and if I didn't already have them. Those bolded lenses are really strong performers, especially considering their new price.
