Fujifilm FinePix X100 Release Delayed Until Late March/Early April

Want to snag a hot Fujifilm FinePix X100 as soon as you can? Well unfortunately according to Engadget,  these bad boys won’t be shipping until late March/early April in the US due to production shortages (they sold too many pre-orders). Looks like we have to wait and twiddle our thumbs until it comes out.

In the meanwhile, are you as stoked as I am?

  1. Got one on order already. I’m a camera dealer in Australia so I’m in the fortunate position of being able to play with all the toys. I’ve been doing this for twenty years now so it takes something special to get me excited (camera wise that is) but this one has got me. Can’t wait.

  2. I’ve got the Leica X-1 which is great (a little slow on auto focus) but this one has me chomping at the bits. I don’t have one on order because I want to wait for user reviews.

  3. ‘Bad boys’? Is it really that urgent? This will be just another couple of weeks! You’ve lived without one so far. You’re not going to die if you can’t get one now, right?

    A lot of people in Japan, however, did – and will. I don’t know whether the production shortages are related to the earthquake/ tsunami and its consequences there, but they might be. And even if they aren’t: It’s not going to kill you.

    A bit of moderation would be in order.

  4. I just read today that Fuji has stopped production for a bit given the recent tragedy (tragedies). So, the X100 will be even harder to obtain.

    Best to all,


  5. Hey Eric. You know I’m a D3S and M9 shooter. I am also on the X100 waiting list. M9’s are great and the lenses are out of this world but there are so many times where I am somewhere dangerous and having a $10K camera in hand isn’t a smart thing to do.

    I thought about an inexpensive point and shoot or even a 4/3 camera but the lens and sensor combinations are still lacking.

    The X100 is right at the sweet spot for me and I can hardly wait. Unfortunately, the tragedy in Japan has my heart out for them but also realize that my X100 will be months away.

    Take a look at Digital Rev’s posting of an X100 in action.
