B&H Photo is having a massive Fuji sale event—all or at least most of Fuji's digital cameras and lenses are available at significant discounts. The X100T is $200 off; save $300 on either X-T1; the popular new weatherproof 16mm ƒ/1.4 is $200 off and so is the brilliant 50–140mm ƒ/2.8 constant-aperture zoom (didn't one reviewer say that one lens was worth building a whole system around? I can't find it now). There are numerous kit combinations on sale too.
B&H has listed everything on this page. Check it out.
Oh, right—one thing not on sale is the new X-Pro2. But did you read David Hobby's account of how Fuji got input from professional photographers in revising that camera? Very interesting. Worth a read as a general camera article even if you're not into Fuji.
P.S. I'll have an update on the book sale later this morning this afternoon.

Featured Comments from:
Earl Dunbar: "Uhm, the other thing that isn't on sale is the 35/2. Not that the current price is bad, but as you say, I'm just sayin'."
Stephen Scharf: "I was hoping you'd see the interview with David Hobby about how closely Fujifilm worked to gather 'Voice of the Customer' (VOC) with it's consortium of professional X-photographers. From my own perspective as a VOC professional, Fuji does a really good job of this. One of the most useful parts of the article that David remarked on was how Fuji considered, and actually made, many different prototype cameras to test and evaluate many different features and most importantly, the tradeoffs those features represented before settling on a final design. What most folks don't realize, particularly the trolls on the camera forums, is that many times, different functions conflict with one another, and it can be quite challenging to determine where and how the tradeoffs should be made (the classic one in photography is the old resolution vs. noise at high ISO tradeoff). This is hard work. When one considers all the features, and all the functions, and the sophistication of the subsystems that provide those functions and features we enjoy, the vast majority of customers simply do not understand how technically challenging engineering those subsystems and putting them into production on a mass scale really is. Mostly, they just gripe about not having a tilt screen, or IBIS, or tilt screen with touch control, blah, blah, blah. For example, the viewfinder on the X-Pro has three different optical subsystems built into one, one that fits in the top cover of the body. Think for a moment on the engineering sophistication it took to pull that off. Virtually no one else in the camera industry has anything comparable in functionality or features.
"Overall, Fuji does a helluva job, and Hobby's article does a great job of articulating that."
