Fujifilm GF670 Rangefinder Folding Camera

Back in stock at BH Photo.... but they won't ship it to Europe! Why is that? This is a dying camera line not likely to make even a microscopic dent in Fuji's worldwide sales....

Probably because of their marketing agreement with Cosina, which would reserve the EU market for the Voigtländer-branded one (this was supposed to be the case in the US as well, so I ordered mine when it came out from Dirk Rösler's Japan Exposures, but the company has changed hands and feedback is not positive).

Sure, but it was originally intended to be a limited production item, then sales wildly exceeded expectations and they had to make several more batches.

I wish they would have upgraded instead of just made new batches. Wind lever instead of knob, self timer, and an f2.8.

Having said all that, it is still my favorite camera, I have both the wide and the regular versions.

I clicked on a variety of European destination countries and the message was the same...."sorry this order cannot be shipped to this location".
