Less than a week after the tech industry swallows up Berlin, the photography industry does the same thing to Cologne. Photokina kicks off in just under six days, and already Fujifilm’s big surprise for the show has been ruined by those tricksy leakers over at Digital Camera Info. According to the report, Fuji’s about to launch the X100T, a retro-styled shooter with a 16-megapixel APS-C censor, 3-inch LCD screen and built-in WiFi for smartphone shutter control. Capable of taking a 23mm f/2.0 lens and shooting ISO up to 51200, the X100T will arrive in a wide variety of colors: black, and black with a silver trim.
Of course, in the headline we mentioned that there were two new cameras coming, but the second isn’t as exciting. In fact, it’s just a refresh of the existing X-T1, this time with a graphite silver trim and a tweaked high-speed shutter. Still, Fuji loyalists may be cheered to see that the company is also working on two new lenses, including an XF 56mm f/1.2 R APD with an apodizing filter for smoother bokeh, and a 50-140mm f/2.8 R LM OIS WR lens with dust and water-resistance. Price-wise, the new X-T1 will reportedly set you back $1,370, with the 56mm lens priced at $1,470 and the 50-140mm going for $1,560.
