Fujifilm Camera and Lens Savings

Nikon is not the only one feeling generous lately. Fujifilm also has some savings for those looking to purchase a new lens or even a camera, and they are, arguably, more impressive than those offered by Nikon. For example, the extremely popular XF 27mm f/2.8 pancake lens is currently selling for less than half its original price. Other rebates include the X-E1 (body only or kitted with the Fujinon XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 R OIS lens, it offers the most impressive savings), X-Pro1 and the lower-end bodies, and almost all primes lenses along with the Fujinon XF 55-200mm f/3.5-4.8 R OIS zoom lens.

Let’s start with the lens savings:

And here are Fujifilm mirrorless camera rebates. I am staggered by the X-E1 prices. Here in Lithuania it still costs around $970 body only. The fact that B&H will also throw in some extras, like a shoulder bag and a memory card, is beyond belief.

    Why are these discounts only for the US/UK guys?
    Not really fair imho

      Well, I could say life isn’t fair but… This stuff happens all the time. Even within a country retailers set prices differently based on regional characteristics. In a high cost of living area it may cost more than in a lower one. Taxes, duties, red tape factor in. Company goals for market penetration and price elasticity play a role.

      So, how come imported Belgian chocolate costs more here than in UK?

        That is true, but applies only to the regular prices I would say.
        I am talking about the significant discounts we do not get in Emea

    Hi Romanas!

    What’s even more staggering is that AmazonUS sells the X-E1 Kit for $719!! They also will ship to here in the UK and will take care of import duty, which brings the price to $881. That’s £536 sterling, and considering the cost of the 18-55mm lens alone, you’re getting the camera for the £100!

    Now I was looking for a way into the X-Series, and was saving some money for either the X-E2 or the X-T1 in a few months time, but this seems way to good to pass up.

    The only downside is the camera probably will not have a valid warranty in the UK and the mains battery charger will need an additional adaptor, for UK sockets.

    Romanas:
    I own a Nikon D800 and because of its size and weight was looking for a camera that would be easier to carry around on a daily basis. I’ve been looking at the Fuji X-E2 as the camera to buy for such use. The difference in price b/w the X-E1 and X-E2 wasn’t big enough for me to go with the X-E1, but now with the new discount should I be considering the X-E1? Is with the new discount on the X-E1 to good to pass up or will I wish I had gotten the X-E2 anyway given its new features.

      As someone who has both (and previously had a D800) I would recommend the E2. The E1 is very capable but the E2 is much better overall. It’s like the sum of lots of small improvements and a few big ones.

        This is good to know, since I am in the same boat. Here in the UK, the E2 is over twice the price as this E1 is with the kit. Is it still worth waiting for an E2? Or is getting an E1 as a carry around for a very cheap price worth it now, then upgrading the body later?

        Thanks

          In that situation I’d get the E1 and wait for the successor to the E2. Save money now, get used to a new system, have fun and take pictures. :)
