Bad message for Fuji S3/S5pro fans...

Postby Stany Buyle » Thu 22 Oct 2009 13:10

I contacted Fuji Belgium if they still had S5pro available and if there would come a successor...
Underneath the message and the answer:

Rough translation:

"Dear sir,
We don't have this anymore and normally there won't come a successor.
Maybe you can still find one somewhere...
Kindest regards,
XX"

*** For reasons of discretion I do not publish the name of the sender.***

I do not believe that an employee of the Belgian Fuji branch knows what they plan in Japan, but @ least this message gives some indication that in the near future, we do not have to dream yet about a 12+12Mp Fuji sensor in a D700 body...

Geachte heer,
Wij hebben deze niet meer en normaal komt er geen opvolger.
Misschien zijn er links of rechts nog wel te vinden...?

Goedemorgen,

Is de S5pro nog verkrijgbaar en/of komt er een opvolger?

Dank bij voorbaat,
Vriendelijke groet,

I've got the same message from Fuji Germany; however, he said that decisions are taken in Japan and with Japanese you 'll never know. So, there might be some hope left.....They never announced they were to withdraw from DSLR business.

I´m not an expert on Japanese corporate mentality (if there is such a thing ;)), but it seems as if they keep everyone in the dark.
Personally, I doubt we will ever see anything but compact, bridge, and 4/3-cameras from them in the future.
In my book they haven´t been able to compete in the DSLR market since the S3 ...
