Save Big on Fujifilm’s Latest Rebates

If mirrorless is your thing, then let me endear you to what I am currently shooting with, the beautiful line of Fuji products. Not without its quirks, the color output from my Fuji X-T1 is beautiful and full of personality and still my favorite kit I’ve ever owned.


Right now, you can get the Fuji X-T1 Graphite Silver edition (read my review of it here) with an instant savings of $300 and it comes with a few additional goodies:

  • SanDisk 16GB Ultra UHS-I SDHC Memory Card (Class 10)
  • Ruggard Hunter 35 DSLR Holster Bag
  • Watson NP-W126 Lithium-Ion Battery Pack (7.4V, 1120mAh)
  • Pearstone Microfiber Cleaning Cloth, 18% Gray (7 x 7.9″)

Also, in my kit is one of my all-time favorite lenses the Fujifilm XF 56mm f/1.2 R (85mm equivalent) which is now only $799 after the $200 instant rebate. Rounding out my little kit is the Fujifilm XF 16-55mm f/2.8 LM WR, which is the workhorse of my collection, and now only $999 after a $200 rebate.

I am considering picking up the Fujifilm 55-140mm f/2.8 R LM OIS WR (currently $350 off) myself. There are plenty of rebates for other Fujifilm cameras and lenses as well.
