One caveat: it would seem the Fuji-X 35mm f/2 is NEVER subject to rebates.

Looks like someone's wish came true B&H are having $100-400 rebates on most of their lenses. And the XF 35mm f2 is going for $299. The black model is out of stock though.

$299 is a great deal... anyone who wants this lens should get it now. It is the best overall Fuji prime IMO.

The 14mm, which is one of the best 90 degree lenses ever made, is dirt-cheap right now at $499. It's a steal. It's almost enough motivation to buy another Fuji body.

That said, I'm not exactly sure what Fuji's business model is, unless it is trying to gain APS-C market share at any price. Fuji is conditioning people not to buy things unless it is during the 80% of the time they are on super-sale, which in the short term kills the secondary market (so, for example, you might now get $350 for a used 14mm that originally cost 899 and now costs 499 new), in the medium term degrades the brand image (once something goes cheap, you know it could be sold cheap), and in the long term puts you in a situation where people hold off on your new releases with the expectation that prices will drift down.

"Digital rot" is in its own way puzzling because it is increasingly uncoupled from actual technological advances. In the old days, film cameras did not take a nose-dive in price (or resale value) until they were replaced. Here, Fuji prices are going down on perfectly good equipment that has no replacement in sight (and in most cases, these lenses could hardly be improved). Unless all of this is attributable to now-ingrained consumer expectations of Moore's law (meaning that the market does not sustain prices) or a "churn and burn" model by which you make a profit after the first couple of thousand units of a new product sold, dump the rest, make a new product, and repeat.

All the manufacturers offer rebates regularly, it's not just Fuji.

The 35/2 is excellent, although has some distortion and vignetting that is fixed via software.

The 14 on the other hand is superbly optically corrected...

Cutting 40% off the price of something is not a rebate on par with what Nikon, Canon, and Leica do.

That's indeed a large rebate! However there are regular rebates/promotions from the other manufacturers, current Nikon rebates max out at $200. Canon has a huge list of rebates.

A lot of this is due to exchange rates.

Nice incentive

I just picked up an XT1 on the rebate, along with the 35 f2 for $299. I'm loving them both, though the XT1 has some buttons that are awkward for me and not very intuitive coming from an XPro1 and X100T. In addition to the discounted XT1, you get a vertical grip for free. Such a deal. I was leaning toward a 14mm but the sample I tried wasn't great. Maybe another copy. Agree with Dante, a steal at that price.

even in the frozen north we have some really nice prices on fuji gear now...but i don't really want anything new and, in fact, am struggling with whether i should sell my 35/2 or keep it.
with these sale prices it seems to be not worth selling as used.

300usd for 35/2? one traditional camera seller in my north european homeland sells it currently for 430eur.

I think its threads like these that cause the "ship as a gift" requests when buying gear online. taxes, customs etc. are so different between countries but information goes through untaxed
