The FUJIFILM X-Pro3 Dura Black started shipping to retailers and there have been a few reports of people receiving them. The Dura Silver finish has been delayed until January 16th and standard black started shipping almost two weeks ago.
The Fujifilm GF100 is finally in stock at Adorama and will be soon at B&H Photo and Amazon. Hopefully, Fujifilm will catch up with demand. There are also two very good Mitakon deals for fast G-Mount glass, which I couldn’t resist. I purchased the Mitakon Zhongyi Speedmaster 85mm f/1.2 and below is my first test shot.
Viltrox posted about their AF 33mm f/1.4 XF on weibo with a price of 1,799 yuan which works out to about $256 USD. Viltrox’s new Fujifilm X-Moun AF lenses should be similarly affordable when they launch soon.

Fujifilm Neopan 100 ACROS II is now available in Japan and we should see some of it show up on sites like Amazon soon. Until then Amazon still has some leftover original ACROS film for those interested. Both videos show some differentiation in tonality, but the second video shows a slight difference in grain structure and the handling of highlights which is interesting. It looks like Fujifilm did a pretty good job with the new formulation. It should be just as popular as the original.
