The price of the Fujifilm X-E2 has been decreased by about $200, which means that photographers can purchase this mirrorless interchangeable lens camera for a dollar under $800 right now.
Fujifilm launched the second-generation X-E camera around mid-October 2013, roughly one year after the introduction of the original version.
The X-E1 has been announced as part of the Photokina 2012 event, while the X-E2 has become official about one year after that, as stated above. This has made a lot of people to think that the Fujifilm X-E3 is in the works and that it is coming in October 2014.
However, there are no rumors to suggest that such thing will happen. In the meantime, the company has decided to drop the price of the X-E2, which is available for about $800.
Fujifilm X-E2 price reduction now available at Amazon and B&H PhotoVideo
Usually, a price reduction, such as this one, signals the fact that a replacement for the device in question will be announced soon. The situation is a bit different now because lots of cameras have had their prices decreased. This is natural as multiple new shooters were revealed at Photokina 2014 and some of them are available at really low prices.
In order to maintain sales alive, the Fujifilm X-E2 price has too been decreased by $200. This means that the mirrorless camera can be purchased for only $799.
The offer is available at both Amazon and B&H PhotoVideo (click on store name to get the camera). Additionally, the deal is available for both Black and Silver versions, so you just need to choose which one is your favorite.
It is worth noting that B&H PhotoVideo has put in some extra accessories worth about $50. A SanDisk 32GB SDHC card and a Watson NP-W126 Li-ion battery pack will be added to the shipping package for free.
