The Fujifilm X-T2 was officially announced back in July, much to the delight of many a photographer as its successor, the X-T1, was a highly-lauded (and some say underrated) mirrorless camera. According to Fujifilm’s announcement then, they stated that the X-T2 would begin shipping to customers in September.
However according to Fuji Rumors, who has in the past been pretty reliable when it comes to such rumors, it seems that they have been tipped by a “trusted” source who claims that Fujifilm will actually begin shipping the cameras out towards the end of August instead of early September as per the official announcement.
We suppose this doesn’t really make that big of a difference since we’re looking at maybe a difference of a few days or a couple of weeks, but it’s always nice to have your items delivered earlier than expected, almost like receiving a present. It is unclear what made Fujifilm move up the shipping date, but perhaps the firmware took less time to finalize than what they had previously thought.
Or as Fuji Rumors speculates, perhaps demand was lower than expected meaning that they have pretty much enough cameras to fulfil all the orders. In any case we guess it’s still best to take it with a grain of salt, but if you did pre-order the X-T2, do keep an eye out for it as it could be arriving in the next week or two.
