Looks like Fuji now has some instant savings on glass with the purchase of camera bodies or kits.
$200 savings on the 14mm f2.8, $100 savings on the 23 f1.4, $200 savings on the 55-200 and $150 savings on the 35 f1.4
Kind of frustrating I'm sure for everyone like myself, who just had preorders filled and shipped last week!
Might be worth giving Adorama a call and complaining and seeing if maybe I can still get a discount on the 23mm f1.4 which was shipped 2 weeks ago.
I've already got the 14mm, but might be interested in the 55-200 for $500. Only thing is that it is sort of a big lens on the smaller XE bodies. Not too unbalanced but still pretty substantial.
Given I'd reach for my 70-200 f2.8 or 70-300 VR on my D3 if/when I wanted to shoot anything action related, the 55-200 would probably be more relegated to just long landscape shooting.
Might consider something like a legacy 135mm compact prime like a Minolta for those rare times I wanted a compressed landscape shot and obviously it would be far cheaper.....
Still though, good savings for those who haven't purchased a XE-2 yet, but kind of a slap in the face to everyone who preordered!
I mean what was Fuji's thinking ? Announce a camera, get all the loyal users to put in preorders, then take forever to actually ship the black bodies and kits. Then....less than a week after they filled those orders, announce a bunch of discounts ??
Not cool....not cool at all....
