Fuji X-E1 body now shipping in the US, zoom lens kit still MIA

A reader in Germany just received his Fuji X-E1 kit (thanks Oleg)

The Fuji X-E1 mirrorless camera is now shipping in the US and is currently in stock at B&H and Amazon. The X-E1 kit that contains the XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4.0 zoom lens is now available in Europe, but not yet in the US. There are also no signs of the new XF 14mm f/2.8 R ultra wide-angle lens.

Here are three Fuji X-E1 unboxing and hands-on videos from the Fuji Guys:

    Zooms are for point&shoot kiddies. Real photographers always take primes…

      This is a very good quality zoom, not your typical kit. Many professionals use zooms like the 70-200 f/2.8, or 24-70 f/2.8. The Fuji kit is excellent for travel, vacation, and various social situations.

    • Yeah, tell that to sports photographers.

  • I really want to love the X-Pro and this camera. It gets so many things right. Rangefinder design, small and leica like, shutter dial, ev dial, interesting sensor design, aps-c sized sensor, EVF built in, beautiful classic looks, etc, etc. IQ is also really great from what I’ve seen. Then there are all the negatives: expensive, not many native lenses, MF primes lack any kind of focus confirmation, focusing solutions with adapted lenses are awkward, no weather sealing, poor RAW conversions in lightroom, no stabilization, no way to manually focus lenses outside of fly by wire, no focus peaking. A swivelling LCD would be pretty nice on a camera like this, but that’s not deal breaker to me. The lack of stabilization of any kind is. I would rather lug around my k-5 (which is not much larger I must add than an x-pro) and bag of primes. I’d come back with more keepers due to the built in shake reduction.
