Fuji X Pro 1 pricing????

I see the rumored price of the new Fuji varying from a high of $1700 for the body alone to a low of $1384.99 for the body and lens.

Has Fuji announced a price?

I for one will not pay $2300 for the camera and normal lens, it's not even an option.

We were all wondering. Thanks for clearing that up.

No official announcement but DPReview did post that Fuji confirmed that the body alone would be about $1700.

Sounds like Fuji is still trying to figure out how to price their new system.

I'm sure Fuji is reading your post right now and wringing their hands.

Seriously, we'll know pricing when they tell us, and when production starts, let the pixel-peeping begin.

In the meantime, use what you've got.

Re: Fuji X Pro 1 pricing????

Today at least 2 Toronto camera stores were taking X-Pro1 pre-orders at $1700 for the body and $600-650 for the lenses. Prices not guaranteed -- Fuji hasn't set official prices yet -- but both stores promise to deliver them for Fuji list price or less.

The 2 stores I called were Henrys and Downtown Camera.

LOL. I was going to post the exact same thing. Word for word.

Re: Fuji X Pro 1 pricing????

Lets see... a Canon 7D with a 35mm f/1.4 lens is around $2850.00 USD

A FujiFilm X-Pro1 with one of the 18mm f/2.0 lenses might be something like $2200.00USD

Not so bad for a camera positioned for the professional market.
Just think what an M9 Leica and a 35mm f/2 Summicron would set you back.

I use mostly prime lenses on my Canon DSLRs - usually two bodies so I don't have to change lenses and contend with dust on the sensor. I'm thinking I might just do the same thing with the X-Pro1.

Before switching to digital I generally shot with a Leica M4/35mm Summicron and Leica M3/50mm Summicron. Using two X-Pro1 cameras would be in keeping with that strategy.

I am looking forward to a more complete appraisal of the X-Pro1 before making a commitment to the camera.

No one is forcing you to buy one unless there really is someone next to you with a Glock to your head yelling "BUY IT!!!!"

Re: Fuji X Pro 1 pricing????

I don't see what's wrong with him/her stating that the $2300 price is to steep, it's a valid opinion in my view.

Dpreview have published that FUJI @ CES stated that the Body price @ $1700, is there other source that's stating $1300 for X Pro1 body?

Re: Fuji X Pro 1 pricing????

Fuji + 35/1.4 = estimated $2300
Sony NEX-7 + 24/2 = $2200

What's the issue?

Re: Fuji X Pro 1 pricing WHY THE RUSH

Seems to me that the more people who rush to the store to pre-order before any retail price has been firmed... provide a great incentive for Fuji to keep the price as high as possible.

Maybe if we feigned faux dis-interest, the feedback from the stores might keep the price below stratospheric?
Just a thought.

Thanks....

Thank you, I was just voicing my opinion.

Unfortunately the world has a plentitude of fustrated angry people.

Oh well.

Re: Fuji X Pro 1 pricing????

Sony NEX 7 + 18-55 = 1349.99 at B&H.

There is no way to get into the Fuji for under $2300

That's the problem.

Why is that a problem ?? .. I can find houndreds of cheaper ... and more expensive ... cameras .
I could easily buy a Casio TRYX for 199 $ .. but that is NOT what I want

Nor do I want a NEX ... I think the nex´s are aimed at a totally different segment of photografers.

Re: Fuji X Pro 1 pricing????

Totally diferent? How so?

I am looking for a non SLR with excellent build and image quality, with interchangeable lenses that is designed for advanced users. Bot the Sony and Fuji qualify, and I am torn betewwn them.

I am interested, who do you think the targeted markets are?

Re: Fuji X Pro 1 pricing????

Seems to me the European price (which has been announced) of 1300 Euros shipped to the US with VAT subtracted and converted to US$ would set the price pretty closely.

No offical European price has ever been announced! The price tag of EUR 1,300 is a mix of rumours and wishful thinking.

How is a crappy zoom in any way equivalent to a quality fast prime? Compare it against the NEX 7 with the 24 if you want to be honest about it.

Re: Fuji X Pro 1 pricing????

The truth of the matter is both the Fuji and Sony are overpriced and as long as we all buy these cameras the price will stay that way. A 5DMK2 can be had for $1900.

Quality prime? Show us your samples then.
