You might be suffering from a bit of GAS (gear acquisition syndrome). Go out and take some photos.

To the commentariat: what are your favorite Fuji lenses and why? I'm thinking about changing to Fuji.

Adorama has the Fujifilm X-PRO1 Mirrorless Camera Body With 27mm F/2.8 and 23mm F1.4 lens for $1,249 right now. Essentially you are getting the body for $249.

Try Googling "Fuji X-T1 price Australia" and see what you get. You can probably subtract the 10% GST as well. I never thought I'd see the day when Australian prices are lower than US or UK prices, but that day seems to be here.

If you buy now you will regret it on January 15, according to a conversation I had with some guys from Fuji, just last week.

Be patient young Jedi. Avoid the pull of the dark side.

Did you see that Magnum accidentally published photos taken with the new Xpro2? http://www.thephoblographer.com/2015/11/17/magnum-photos-possibly-confirms-release-of-fujifilm-x-pro-2/#.VkvvfvmrShc

Mike,
Thanks for the info. I am looking for a Fuji X-T10 body only. Is it possible to get one just under $699.00?

[Hi Fred,
Sure, here is the link:

I don't have a mailing list or I would put you on it. But please do visit us again, you are welcome. --Mike]

Rumormongering is such a funny business. In that linked blog post (phoblographer) the author writes:
"Very few pieces of news make me almost drop my coffee cup while inbibing some precious morning java, but a report from Fuji Rumors did just that." followed by "Insane, right?"

Why is news that a camera company is going to release a new camera "insane" ?

It seems like (many) camera buyers are in a perpetual state of angst about their gear. Is my brand going to go out of business tomorrow ? Are they ever going to make another camera ? Are my lenses all going to be obsolete ? Something's insane about it all.

The Silver Graphite X-T1 for $1199 is killing me, too, Mike!

Arrrgghhh!!!

-best,
Stephen
