RUMOR: Here is the VERY Affordable Price of the XF35mmF2! ... and of the 1.4x Teleconverter!

Recommended Posts

If it is true that it will cost only €399 this will be enticing for many of us to buy it.

 

I’ve sold mine, the 35mm 1.4 for not much less than that, in as good as new state, after a little more than one year. That lens has a theoretical price of €549 in the NL.

 

But in reality when bought it in combination with a camera, its price is seriously smaller than that. So, if you buy a XE-2 with a body price of €699 you pay €1039 with the 35mm 1.4, bringing the price of the lens to only €340.

 

So I should expect that this lens might cost €399 on its own and a lot less if sold with a camera that they are either trying to get rid of or to promote. The kit of a WR lens with a non WR body like the X-T1 would make little sense but maybe it will be offered or the last of the X-E2 bodies will go for sale at a slashed down price.

 

Either way this is very promising especially for those, like me, who are not hand up on having a lens a little more light efficient than another.

 

Another thought.

 

If this is the price, sell your old 35mm as soon as you can because prices will be tumbling down as soon as the other comes onto the market.

That is over $50 more than I just paid for a brand new 35 1.4. 

I thought they would be less.

Boxed lens only or bundled with a camera? I've paid approx. 233 EUR for my XF 35/1.4 as a kit (with X-T1 and 18-55/2.8-4), but regular price is twice as much.

Don't forget this is a completely new lens and it's price tag includes "early adopter tax".

Hmm, just under £300 in the UK at that price, so maybe a bit cheaper for 'real'? Still, that's an ok price I guess, and if the focus speed is improved much over my 1.4 I might just sell my 1.4 and get the new lens. If it weighs less than the 1.4, even better, although physical length doesn't look to be that much different.

Obviously prices vary greatly, abroad  unfortunately they don’t in the Netherlands, all shops seem to always use the same tuning fork ( to the penny!) buying in other countries is a possibility but only if within Europe otherwise any savings will be used to pay the VAT (21%) at entry or shipping charges and the mysterios fee for “ handling through customs" , besides international guarantee is one year ( and they are always fussy about it) while national guarantee in any country of Europe is at least 2 years and my shop offers 3 to 5 years sometimes.

Some women say that girth is much more important then length :-)

 

Retail box brand new from B&H. Digital Rev currently has them for $409.

 

EUR price might include VAT (15-27%, AFAIK), that makes a substantial difference.

It seems like Fuji has updated the 35mm 1.4 a little bit. Possibly why B&H had them on backorder for months. The focus ring and aperture ring are tighter, with aperture being "clickier." Focus is fast.

Firmware shows 3.11 while the web site only shows 3.10.

Hmmmmmmmmm.......

I am new to this forum. I have never heard of Digitalrev. Are they reputable..ship to US. I am thinking of ordering the 35 1.4 from them...

Thanks for input

 

I have some good experiences with them. They provide their own U.S. warranty if a company won't cover a problem. Sometimes their shipper DHL will send you a customs bill after the fact, but DigitalRev will refund the same amount back on your card if you let them know, then you can forward the amount to customs. 

Really good pricing on a lot of the Fuji stuff.

    • Follow these steps: - put an empty/formatted card in the camera - go into Set Up/Save Data Set-up/Frame No. : change to RENEW - take a single picture (this will be DSCF0001), turn off the camera and remove the card - copy your original picture (DSCF1478) onto the card (You could also change the name of the DSCF0001 file in your computer if you no longer have the original DSCF1478) - put this card in the camera and turn it on - before taking any pictures change RENEW
    • I have the 10. I don't think the 13 will fit. The 10 fits tightly into the bottom of the pack, which is good because it won't get shaken around.

    • Can I update X-T2 firmware from ver 3.00 to ver 4.32 in one step? 
    • im new to this forum but no stranger to fuji  @LEEP sorry to hear your having issues as well!  I’ve been shooting on an xt1 since the first release, I just upgraded to the xt4 last week.  As soon as I unpacked it, fiddled with it and connected it to my phone, it prompted for a firmware update and I figured why not.... bad move? Jury is still out.  since then, randomly, maybe every third time I go to use the camera it won’t turn on. I’ll have to completely remove the battery and put it b
