p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Anyone excited about tomorrows announcments?


So tomorrow we should get the following info:


  1. Fuji X-E3
  2. XF 80mm f2.8 macro
  3. GF 45mm 2.8
  4. Updated lens roadmap
  5. Firmware updates


I'm really interested in the updated lens road map since I'm hopping they'll actually give firm numbers on there UWA zoom lens (rumored to be 8-16mm f2.8 WR). Same thing with their telephoto prime lens (rumored to be 200mm f2). Who knows what else they might bring to the table, although fujirumors have done a great job on letting us know what's around the corner.

Anyone else excited?

Yeah, I've been waiting a while to see how the macro lens shapes up. Also interested in the lens roadmap, particularly in the new UWA zoom.

I'm really curious about the price and release date of the X-E3. I've rented the X-T2 and X-Pro2. I liked the form factor of the XP2 but I found the hybrid viewfinder not useful to me. I loved the large EVF of the XT2, but it is pricey.

The XP2 got me interested and I've rented the X-E2s that will get here tomorrow. For the price of the XT2 with the kit lens, I can get the X-E2 with a kit lens and the 56 1.4. For the same price of the XT2 with the kit lens and the grip I could get the above plus the 12mm Rokinon.

I'd love it if the X-E3 had the same size viewfinder as the XT2, but I'm sure it will be the same size as the XP2. If the pricing of the X-E2 lands somewhere between the XT20 and the XT2, I might be tempted to wait if I like the X-E2s.

I'm not looking to add anything to my kit at this time, so I'm semi-excited. Always good to see Fuji working on their systems.

I AM curious of the new lens map though. I would like to see the rumored 70mm and the 200mm f2 on it.

Am hoping an UWA zoom lens is in the works at some point.

Definitely I think I will fall in love with 80mm Macro lens.

I must have missed that. IS there an "expected" price?

As much as I love the Zeiss 50mm, I am really looking forward to a longer macro lens.. maybe I should wait for somebody else to fight with GAS , and buy it used on the board.

I don't see that but I think it should be over $1K.

I'm really curious of the UWA. If they produced a 10-24 f/2.8 that would be killer. That focal length would be very versatile. An 8-16 would be a very niche range that is not as useful for a broader range of shooting.

The Tokina 11-16 for the mirrored bodies was not fully appreciated by some due to the limited focal lengths. That's when Tokina listened and produced the 11-20 f/2.8.

I'd be happy to have an 8-16, but am guessing that means it'll be a bulbous front element design. That would dampen my enthusiasm a bit because filters are usually a pain with those.

there are price hikes to make my hair rise, if the rumor sites are close to true. $1100 for the X-E3, up a "bit" from, what ... 699?

And the rumored price for the 80 macro is over 1300 bucks. And this is on a US dollar that is killing every other currency. What's their excuse. It used to be the exchange rate. Right.

I may just take up a cheaper hobby .... like Yachting.

Yes. I would be killer. On peoples backs and wallets.

Did that come with two ... or three Fuji primes, as well as a mink lined display box?

Tokyo is 13 hours ahead of where I am in Eastern time ... it's about 11:30 am now ... I wonder when we will know. Soon I guess.

Bit premature don't you think? As we just saw the X-E3 didn't end up costing $1100, so chances of the 80mm macro costing $1300 is slim to none. It will probably cost around $1000.
