Fuji 10-24mm Lens delayed
9 months ago

Looks like the new Fuji 10-24mm lens announced in December 2013 will be delayed another month into April/May 2014.

Apparently Fujifilm was caught off-guard by the large pre-order numbers from all over the world and didn't manage to manufacture all the units needed to fulfill these pre-orders.

I got mine yesterday in NL. In fact, I thought it might only come next week, so I was pleasantly suprised when I was told it was ready for pick up!

That does not mean it is delayed, it means it will be in short supply for a while.

Your subject line is misleading, if it was delayed nobody would get any lenses, we know this is not the case.

Aden Camera had it in stock last week. So maybe just US shipments are delayed?

Thanks for the quick response, but they will not ship to the U.S. I tried.

A month? Amazon has following on the listing.

"This item will be released on March 31, 2014."

They can't be back ordered that much.

Is it an automated email?  Sometimes when something has been on backorder they send one of those out every month or so.

It might be they don't know either, or maybe based on when you ordered if they have to fill other orders first, etc.

Thank you very much. I placed the order and will now cancel my U.S. orders. I confirmed with Fuji U.S. that there is a one year warranty.

Are you sure about the warranty? Canadian version carries a two year Canada warranty that Fujifilm USA does not honor. You should double check, I think.

My order  with Amazon, placed about three weeks ago, is still showing "this item will be released March 31"

i was hoping to receive mine before the current sale ends, just in case I decide to get the 14mm prime instead.

Yes. I am certain. Canada does offer a two-year warranty, but in the U.S. that warranty is only for a year for items purchased from Canada.
