With the Fuji X-Pro2 just announced, the X-Pro1 remains at some crazy clearance prices.
You can get the Fuji X-Pro1 with the XF 27mm f/2.8 lens for $699, along with a 32GB SanDisk U3 memory card and camera bag. The XF 27mm f/2.8 lens alone sells for $449 right now, so it’s like you’re paying $250 for the X-Pro1 body. That’s a pretty cheap way to buy into the Fuji X-Series.
Also, you can get the X-Pro1 with the XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM OIS lens for $799. It also includes a 32GB SanDisk U3 card and camera bag. This is another solid deal, considering that the XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM OIS lens runs $699 in you buy it alone right now. I’ll let you do the math on that value.
The Fuji X-Pro2, X-E2S and X70 cameras are expected to be officially announced later this week. However, it looks like Fujifilm in France posted the YouTube sizzle videos for the cameras publicly a little too soon.
