FUJIFILM X-E2 (Body only) Refurbished Digital Camera £269.99 @ Fujifilm

'PAYPAL12' to knock 10% off as with all refurbed cameras on the Fuji store.

Incredibly cheap price for an exceptional camera, there are highly regarded pros shooting weddings with this camera (not many £270 camera bodies you can say that about!)

Obviously it requires a lens, but for existing Fuji X shooters looking for an upgrade or a second body this is a steal.

£4.99 - Standard Delivery on the top of the price so comes up to Grand Total £274.98

just bought the black one
so many cold votes, can you share where you found it cheaper?

Really nice camera at such a good price, albeit refurbished. In fact, I bought one just under 14 days ago for £50 more! So, this further reduction sent me scuttling to cancel my ordered camera and place a new order to benefit from this further reduction.

Price is definitely hot, but I'd just suggest people who are interested be aware of the likely cost of buying fuji lenses separately - this is just the body advertised for 299 after all. It's possible, there's better value in buying the camera and lens (excellent kit lens by all accounts) together. Otherwise, great deal IMO

Don't suppose anyone knows where to find a great deal on the fuji xf 18-55mm and 23mm lenses - though the 23mm is probably too much on the high side for now.

Cold because of the Picture of the 'Houses of Paedophiles' used :P

Thanks for your contribution, I'm coming from aging nikon 1 system which is still super fast for accurate focusing. Could you recommend some cheapo (plastic) lens to get so at least I could get a "feel" of the cameros just to see do I like the ergonomics/controls?

Hi siqass, I don't claim to be an expert by any means. I just try to work out what I like as I go along. If you follow the reviews, the X-E2 generally does very well, particularly when coupled with one of the Fuji lenses I don't have, but admit to coveting. I use the XE2 with lenses from a fujifilm XA1, the start of their X cameras, with a plain bayer sensor (not X trans like the rest). The XA1 felt disappointing as soon as I got it, very light weight and lacking in quality feel (I've got an X10 which feels great to me). However, when I started snapping with the starter lenses - kit lens 16-50mm and 50-230mm (particularly the latter), I got some fantastic captures, by which I mean magazine quality in terms of colours and clarity. So, I've used these lenses on my XE2 before investing in more. You can pick these up on ebay reasonably enough - and if you fancy a zoom 50-230, unless mine is unusually good, it's excellent. You could also buy an adapter - not too expensive - and try other second hand lenses. I've got a pentax adapter which I briefly tried. But this won't give you the Fuji experience, as I understand it and you'll be going down the manual root. The XE2 with its manual focus assistance does seem pretty easy to use like this though

I've had the XE2 a couple of weeks now and been slowly getting the measure of it. Early days and it takes me a while to 'get' a camera. First impressions, again disappointed when first picked it up. I expected more weight and quality feel (more like X10), instead, plasticky leather effect, bottom plate. No articulated screen, which I miss. Colours not as shout out fujifilm which I'm going to have to look into. But it's quick to operate, viewfinder seems good, body bigger than I'd realised (not my idea of pocketable), and focus speed and accuracy pretty good (hunting a bit in lower light). On picture quality I honestly can't see it improves on the X-A1, but that opens a can or worms on X trans generally! but it definitely handles better. And my comment on picture quality is meant as very high praise for my X-A1 and not to denigrate the XE2. There don't seem to be bad cameras these days when you spend a reasonable sum, so for me it's down to great captures and perhaps a camera's personality. I know I'll stomp up for an xf lens soon and that's when I'd like to see a further jump in quality. Still captures so far have been very good just nothing really special.

If you've got the money for the body and a fair lens, I'd say give it a go. It certainly makes a change for me to my nikon with a 300mm zoom thumping my chest and collecting those 'what's he up to?' looks. :-) I'll probably pick up the kit zoom next (xf 18-55mm) for about £250 on ebay as it does get great reviews and I've seen some stunning captures on flickr with it. Hope I've not gone too overboard here and good luck if you give it a go.

Just to add, Fujifilm have agreed to reimburse me the difference between what I paid for the camera 2 weeks ago and the new reduced price. It's great to come across such good customer relations.

Excellent camera, bargain price... I'd buy but I don't have an XF lens to test it out.
the 10-24 is a killer lens but I can't really stretch another £650.

... Also, every Fuji deal gets voted cold, it's a HUKD idiots thing.

Worth getting and selling my xe1?

Bendown

Worth getting and selling my xe1?



Yep.

Both colours sold out now.

Back in stock - just got a black one. Should be the perfect companion to my X-Pro1!

Good price for the body... Fujifilm are offering up to £700 cashback on new lenses which might be useful for anyone buying this body... The more lenses you buy the bigger the saving...

This is a great camera and was my first choice. I opted for the smaller M4/3 cameras from Panasonic and Olympus purely on cost.
