I'm a great fan of Fuji refurbs but on this occasion, with a bit of legwork, I think this is the better deal, or certainly worth considering. 1. 2 year warranty from Fuji 2. 0% finance available 3. £180 cashback - Brings cost down to £969.00 4. Selling the free VPB- should be able to clear £175 on eBay - brings cost down to under £800 Gives you £300 towards buying the superior 16-55WR lens or a prime of your choice.
Whoop! Cool deal, top class kit.
Great price, camera is amazing and kit lens performs very well
Very specific but Manchester airport T1 Dixon’s had this exact camera, ex-display for £764 yesterday afternoon.
Out of stock and expired
That's a good price. No Fuji warranty with that though. In fact you might well find Fuji UK won't touch it at all if there's a problem outside of warranty. For me a website that has a UK number, is based in Hong Kong and does not provide any form of address is a no no.
You can buy the Xt30 with XF 18-55 lens kits for £865 with WOWCamera.com https://www.wowcamera.com/Fujifilm-X-T30-Body--Black-with-XF18-55mm-Lens_p_3270.html
If I had the cash right now, I'd buy this in a flash. Truly excellent body, and the lens is highly thought of, so much better than usual kit lenses. Grrrr, just come at the wrong time for me. Oh well, next year then..
Really appreciate your feedback here, thank you. I’ll wait for BF and if the price doesn’t get close enough to the one posted here, I will consider a refurb camera. I’d also considered buying the body and then a white box version of the lens for around £320.
it seems the 15-45mm lens better for video and 18-55mm better for photo.
Just ordered the X-T30 with 18-55 for £769. More expensive that the deal here, but from the comments above it seems the extra is worthwhile
I have Nikon full frame camera and only use Fujifilm for video and travel. I find the kid lens 15-45 is pretty good, and very light.
My kit with 16-50mm arrived today. Everything looked and packed as brand new, except for the box which says refurbished. Daughter is very happy with it (y)
Fuji kit lenses on this are great, I wouldn't be put off, it's just that the XF lenses are better and worth stretching to if you can
Just got mine back having been refurbished/cleaned. Looks ok - no marks and no dust inside. The weird thing is, I sent it back with zero shutter count and what has been sent back to me has 100 shutter count... hmm... I didn't take a photo of the serial number before sending it back as I didn't think I needed to so don't know if this is a different camera... I was told my camera was being taken apart and refurbished and sent back. Also, I called a few times and when the job was done, someone confirmed it had been done, so I don't think they lied to me. Is it normal for a shutter count to increase by exactly 100 during refurbishing / cleaning or have they just sent me a different camera lol?
just relax, no camera is worth such hassle, send it back, get a refund this is not a deal of the year anyway, If i were you I would not send it to have it fixed, they may mess up something else.
Spoke to them - they don't have any more X100Fs in stock apart from the ones with all the problems that they've already offered me. They have agreed to take my one apart, remove the dust and send it back to me. Do I need to be worried about them taking it apart and putting it back together? Never had a camera sent for repairs/cleaning before. They have some others waiting to be worked on which haven't been added to the pool for sale yet, but they 'all' need significant repairs done on them and the one I received is the best. Also - the other camera I received (the 5000 shot count one) with the dust, chips/scratches is now going to be 'refurbished' after I sent it back i.e. it was definitely sent out to me without being 'refurbished' as I suspected... Also regarding those of you who get cameras with zero shutter counts in mint condition - they are saying, whenever they get refurb stock and put the items for sale, the earlier you order, the more likely you are to get cameras like that. This would also explain why people like Ollie who watch the refurb pages like a hawk get mint condition zero shutter count cameras.
If I were in your shoes and you still want to persevere I would quote them this: Every product that is returned in this way is extensively inspected and tested by trained technicians and restored to a like-new condition. I think it's reasonable to assume 'like new condition' should be dust free. With a years warranty I would ask them if they would consider cleaning it for you However they may or may not quote this to you. Refurbished products may exhibit some minor cosmetic imperfections but these in no way impair products operation. Otherwise just get your money back and move on. Your purchase is driving me nuts, I can only imagine what it's doing to you.
Looking online there are countless people with this same issue and this camera. It really beggars belief if you look. I looked at their viewfinders and it's exactly the same as mine. Same issue of this appearing when using EVF. Clearly a massive design fault by fujifilm with poor sealing and no excuse for it given it's a fixed lens camera and the high price. Someone said they managed to move their dust by using an air duster spray. I just tried that and it didn't move at all. Someone else said he used one of those piezo clicker ignition lighters to use electric charge to move it, but others pointed out that would damage the electronics...
Out of stock again
Back in stock 5 available
Out of stock.
That's a great price for the original converters. For anyone who doesn't know... They're a bit of a faff to use on the x100 series having to select the setting for the right lens in the menu. The 2nd series of converters has a magnet so the x100f knows which conversion lens is fitted automatically. The 1st series like these here can be modded with a little magnet apparently so they work just the same.
Does that price include VAT?
This looks like an fab deal, just a bit late for me and my holiday!
I've bought many refurbished cameras from Fujifilm, all in excellent condition. Same warranty as new so its a no-brainer to me! New versions of this camera are around £99 by the looks of it. The new XP140 is £179 WOW..
Arrived last week and is in perfect condition. Thanks Op
Yes and generated one myself. Didn't post it here as lots of threads say "no referrals" for some reason. And it would be a referral because the person using the code gets 5% off but also the person who generated the code (for some future purchase from Fuji)
anyone tried all the paypalx variations? 5 and 12 were ones i remember that worked in the past - maybe theres another
Did you find the code?
Was definitely showing in stock when posted.
Fuji do choose to package the sought after XF 18-55mm lens with bodies that they are more interested in shifting. So you're more likely to see FUJIFILM X-E2S Kit (XF18-55mm Lens) on offer. Rather than FUJIFILM X-E3 Kit (XF18-55mm Lens) It can be annoying, because they will have the FUJIFILM X-E3 body only available
Your right, not sure that I will get anything
not sure you get it but ok whatever ;)
Guarantee to make you feel that it's not a sale but a lottery!
refurb stock isn't a guaranteed line though - can only sell what they have unless you want them to drop a few new ones to refurb for you?
Superb price, especially with the excellent 18-55mm (y)
I love my X-T20. Great price.
I personally would be set on the XF18-55 and more flexible on the body. That said and done I wouldn't be buying the X-E2 which is the only in stock body supplied with the 18-55 at the moment.
Thanks, set up a stock alert and just nabbed one today (19/03)
The XT20 double lens kit at £520 seems good value... https://shop.fujifilm.co.uk/digital-cameras/fujifilm-x-t20-kit-xc16-50mm-mk-ii-xc50-230mm-silver-refurbished If you're set on the X-E3 than this drops to £480 in the basket: https://shop.fujifilm.co.uk/fujifilm-x-e3-kit-xc15-45mm-lens-refurbished
wonderful camera and cracking lens too.
I'm glad to hear! Yeah, they sure do pack them in, haha
Mine just arrived, it all looks to be in perfect condition. It did look like they struggled to fit everything into the box, though. XD
I ordered it on Sunday night and it came on Tuesday.
No I don't have one, I have Fuji X100T which has an older sensor than the X-T20. However I also have the original X100 which I tend to take more pics with because I don't baby it like the latter model. I don't buy into chasing the latest and greatest, because in my opinion it's both expensive and a little pointless unless you're a professional. What I find with Fuji is that there is very little need to do much post processing with their out of camera jpegs which for me helps as I am quite capable of spending far too much time in front of a screen rather than behind a camera. It wasn't too long ago that I would scan negs which was a time consuming nightmare for me. As I have already stated, I am biased because I think Fuji lenses are fantastic. That's not to say that other camera manufactures don't make equally good lenses, but they seem to make a lesser percentage of great lenses by comparison. The issue is someone could come along here and talk in exactly the same fashion about Nikon/Canon and that would be fair enough. If you fancy a change, I don't think you would go too far wrong with this. However you could just buy a decent second hand prime lens for you Nikon and get out a take pics.
Lol nothing. I just heard alot about this camera producing amazing images! Do you have one can you tell comment on the quality
The 18-55 is the way to go. I personally would still consider X-T20 body v XE3 (X-T20 holds it's own against X-T2 in many ways) but for someone who knows 0 about photography it has to be XE3, and that's not being said in a condescending manner
Another option is the xe3 with 15-45 @ £479.20, but the 18-55 is vastly superior for £100 more https://shop.fujifilm.co.uk/fujifilm-x-e3-kit-xc15-45mm-lens-refurbished
I have the X-E3 in my basket (just to see the discount being applied). I know there's only 1 in stock as I was going to post a deal on it. Before I do that, I thought I would give you the heads up that there's just one left
Funny that was not showing as discounted for me until added to the basket.
My browser is playing up. The discount for the link given by tempt was not showing. He is right to suggest the XE3 in my opinion. You want that 18-55mm lens, and the XE3 is a good choice.
Excellent find and I've asked to be informed if a couple of items come back into stock. Now I'll just wait ............ (y)
Incredible prices. Shame all the good stuff is OOS
drat! too slow - everything I was interested in is OOS :(
The price in red is with the 20% taken off. But the X-E3 and some X-T20 models seem to show the normal price in red, but when you add it to the basket the 20% comes off.
Shame no GFX50s, but some good bargains on APS-C bodies. Heat
Is that worth it?
Was just going to ask if anyone’s got their yet, I’ve not and no tracking information available. Getting impatient now!!
Thanks OP. Mine was delivered today. Came in a Fuji refurb box but looks new, not a scratch anywhere on the body or lens and complete with all accessories including the interesting hotshoe flash in the box. The mag alloy body feels incredible in the hand, In fact better than the EM10 Mk2 which I also have but will now go on ebay. As someone said, the kit lens doesn't feel like one. Tack sharp throughout the zoom range. Godox seem to be making some pretty good external TTL flashes for this. Thanks again OP. Heated.
I actually came back to buy another one. You could sell the lens and body separately on eBay for £500 total. Oh well.
Out of stock just before I was gonna pull a trigger - well, saved myself £399.
Thank you so much for taking the time to give me this information. I will be continuing to use my phone for quick snaps of the kids, they are 10 and 13 so already at the scowling stage, but would like a camera for going out with. I did look for 2nd hand to start with but this deal was around the same price as going down that route.
How old are the kids? Are you taking loads of pics of them? It doesn't take long for them to hit an age where they'll look at you in a scowling manner if you dare point a camera at them. The kit lens here is a stunner, you won't upgrade from it unless you want to buy prime (non zoom lens) which cost a lot and are better, but not so much better that you would never consider using this lens. It is quite typical to buy a camera body and 2 lenses that cover everything from 1m to as far as the eye can see. I get it, but I would say to anyone starting off to buy 1 lens and 1 body. You will replace the camera body quicker than a lens if the lens is a quality piece of glass. I got my first SLR, a Pentax Spotmatic, when I was 16 and spent years with just a 50mm (equivalent to 34mm on most cameras today) lens attached. 45 - 50mm was used because it was considered to give the same view and perspective as the human eye and I wasn't prepared to invest. I took some brilliant shots with that camera and that's how I really learnt about photography. The Fuji XF range of lenses are better than the XC range. In a nutshell this kit is a cheap way of owning a great lens with a body that is capable of producing stunning shots. But re-read undercover82's comments as they are relevant. With all said and done I would say this out of stock kit would be my only other consideration and it should become available. Would you consider 2nd hand?
I want to learn but have only used phones and compact cameras before. Its more for a hobby when going out with the kids, and taking scenery shots and wildlife. Thanks
When you say absolute beginner what do you mean? If it's 1st venture beyond phone camera there is zero need to spend £650 or even £500. What are you trying to achieve. Are you looking for point and shoot experience, or do you want to have control over your camera and learn about photography 2nd hand gear is plentiful and well priced
I've read so many things online but For an absolute beginner should I look at buying this deal or the one in the link below please? https://shop.fujifilm.co.uk/fujifilm-x-t20-kit-xc16-50mm-mk-ii-xc50-230mm-silver-refurbished Thankyou
27 f2.8, Really nice lens, not the fastest to focus but excellent quality. If you can cope with manual focus only, the Samyang 12mm f2
Have ordered this, can anyone recommend a small prime lens that wont break the bank, wideangle
That's a tough one as I know the A6000 is a good camera. This combo is weather sealed so may be of use especially in the UK. The upside is that if you didn't like the Fuji, you could likely sell it for what you paid or even turn a profit. A new 18-135 is £699 so second hand, it will be worth a bit. The T1, is an older model but a lovely camera. I think it depends how invested you are in the Sony system. I have found even Fujis budget lenses are really good.
Was tempted but currently using a Sony a6000. Not sure if this would be an upgrade.
back in stock if you still want one
Thanks for the comprehensive reply! Interesting approach by Fuji. Each to their own and all that I suppose.
I am just beginning to learn that myself. The A5000 is what I use and if you are willing to work on skills of manual focus, a £200 or £300 lens will do as well as a camera costing 3 or 4 times that but you have to put the work in a bit.
Think most of them break if you kick them around
Best lens for sports under 200?
Here you go (though I don't think there are many, if any, left in stores): https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/fujifilm-x-t20-mirrorless-camera-with-xc-16-50-mm-f35-56-ois-ii-lens-499-currys-fuji-50-cashback-3105688
What do you mean the Curry's stock did they have it reduced further? Ta.
I don't know. Possibly, if the amazon Invoice shows the 23rd - 26th as the purchase date regardless of when it gets dispatched, but you could just ask Amazon if that's the case. There are a fair few other retailers on the list, just take a look at those too.
Would you still get the discount if you bought it when it was tempsold out? Hmmm
Got it. Thanks 🙏🏼
This just arrived and it's unreal, and 12 month manufacturer warranty too! Seriously this is easily the best deal I've seen on hukd, thank you so much for posting! Christmas came early!
Got an As New X-T2 from Park Cameras
Which did you upgrade to? I've been tempted to upgrade my XE2 also, but the prices of the new bodies are too high. The Sony A7 is currently just £500 with lens on Amazon after cashback! I'm now considering the switch to FF mirrorless.....just waiting on a good A7II deal. I want that IBIS. For those considering this deal - it's a bargain, but be warned - the camera has no IBIS (though the included lens does - so this isn't a problem as such for this kit) and does not support HSS flash.
£729 here.. https://www.365astronomy.com/Fujifilm-X-E2-18-55mm-Black.html
Unless I'm missing something this deserves to be scorching! The lens alone refurbished on the Fuji site is £400+! On MBP bought separately it's £300 for the body and another £300 for the lens!
