Does X100V ever go on sale?

Seeing the X100F sale today by Adorama for $750 had me researching these little cameras. I'm really intrigued by this series now. The X100F deal makes it so tempting, but I think I'd rather wait for the X100V to go on sale. I realize I might be waiting a long time. Just wondering if this camera has ever gone on sale (outside of the free bag deal they have going right now).

It's the same with X100F. It's was rarely went on sale until the X100V arrived. So you will need to wait until Fuji releases the next X100 series for the X100V to be on sale. Then you will want the next one to be on sale. Never-ending loop of waiting for things to be on sale.

I bought mine months ago for $1250, no tax, free shipping through Greentoe.com. Probably the best way to go with no sales on.

If not opposed to used have a saved search on eBay fire you a message every day about X100V recently put up for sale & throw out some low offers.  Got mine for less than $950 all-in.

I haven't seen the V go on sale yet, but there's a couple ways to save a few bucks on one.

I bought mine from Best Buy with a 10% off coupon I found on the internet. That dropped the price to $1260+tax.

Target sells the V via Adorama, you can get 5% off using a Target Red Debit (or credit) card.

Seems like I just saw it on sale in an ad from Abe's of Maine. Not sure about the vendor though. I don't think his name is really Abe, and they are nowhere near Maine...

Do not go anywhere near Abe’s of Maine. They used to be reputable but are now a bait and switch operation. Stay far, far away.

Aren't there laws in the U.S. against such practices? How are they getting away with it?

Essentially, they sell you a gray market product with none of the accessories that are supposed to come with it. After you’ve placed your order they make you pay ridiculous prices for those accessories. I have no idea how they get away with it, but it could be how they advertise the products or that regulatory agencies just haven’t received enough complaints to look into them and shut them down.

Re: Does X100V ever go on sale?

It's on sale in Australia at the moment.  It ends in a few hours at midnight Western Australian time.  Our prices are shockers here 'down under', no matter which way you look at it.  It's normally normally $2088 but till midnight is $313 off at $1,774.  They've had sales on all week for lots of Fuji gear, but alas there is nothing I'm interested in until the new beloved X-H2 arrives (my two beloved X-H1's are still cranking out the pictures).  Don't you let me down Fuji!!

Yes, I looked them up after my post. Same story - they used to be OK but the original company declared bankruptcy and the new company bought the name. They have nothing but 1-star reviews, and all of those say they wish they could give zero stars.
