B&H just informed me as of today they have the XT-2 in stock. However......and this is BIG......the XT-2 with kit lens is STILL on backorder.

This isn't a preorder for an item that was yet to be released. It had been on the market for a while already. B&H simply can't get these things. Fuji corp must be having some manufacturing problems. The XT-2 with kit lens is Out of stock at all major retailers.



I don't think there are any manufacturing issues. The camera has been in stock in Canada for months, people have got it in the past 2 weeks from other stores. Body only ones are more common it seems.

What may be happening is the following:
Some X-T2 production lines were retooled for X-T20 and GFX.
Fuji has numbers showing most X-T2 buyers will buy body only because it is a high end item and many probably already own the 18-55 from previous cameras. Typically kits sell better on lower end cameras. There are no GFX kits or 1DX kits. The Fuji 18-55 kit lens is the best 18-55 kit lens out there from any company. If I was buying an X-T2 I'd look for the kit also...luckily in Canada they are easier to find. I sold all my Fuji gear off but if I re-enter the market the 18-55 kit will be important to me.

Hope B&H gets some kits for you soon. Otherwise I'd just place a few other orders with Amazon and Adorama and maybe you will get one faster than B&H.

Well....I just finished an online chat with B&H. They say they expect a shipment of XT-2's with Kit Lens tomorrow. I was told I was "likely" to get one of those.

I am in agreement with you on the kit lens. Purchasing it with the XT-2 saves me $300 on that lens....which is in fact a superb price for a great lens. I could have had an XT-2 body deleviered by now but not with the kit lens. Hopefully this week I'll finally get it shipped to me.

It's the same situation with new the X-T20 and the 18-55mm kit lens. I can find body only or a body with the XC16-50mm. The shortage seems to be more around the 18-55mm availability. Hopefully you get your order in tomorrow shipment.

Best Buy currently has all X-T20 models in stock. Just ordered the black version with 18-55mm after the wife claimed my silver one for herself!

I was just informed by B&H that the XT-2 with kit lens won't be available until late April. They have led me on for weeks with false information.

Precision camera in Austin has both black and graphite in stock , I was just there


Miracle of miracles. I called around all over the USA. The only place in the country that has one in stock was Precision Camera in Austin. I'm waiting for a call back from them now. Once my credit card clears they will ship it out. I'm on the cusp of getting it as I write this.

It's being shipped to my house. JustShootMe for the win. The XT-2 with Kit lens status now back to "impossible to buy in USA" due to the fact that I just grabbed the last one in America. Thanks very, very much JustShootMe.

Finally! Congratulations!

I took Justshootme's advice and actually reached out to them for the silver few weeks back and they had a few in stock. Also recommended Preciscion to a few other folks here as well. Seems like a really good place to buy things.

I got the last one. I actually saw it go to "out of stock" on the Precision Camera website when I bought it.

You waited long enough. Now it's time to unbox it, charge the battery, insert memory card, and enjoy!

I think you owe it to everyone here to do an unboxing video...
