    Find it interesting that the X-T20 is already on sale and nobody seems to have any to sell. Maybe Fuji is nervous because they don't have preorders stacked upto the ceiling? And the X-A3 must be selling real well. 30% off already.

    Good thing I already have an X-T20 and the savings are slight. After picking up the X-Pro2 I'm done for a while.

    It would be interesting to see Fuji's sales model, a traditional camera sales model usually holds on to sale savings and deals until the product is older, or if the competitor has released a new product, or if a new model is coming out. A more aggressive sales model drops the prices of their current offerings and presents deals as a move to over saturate the market, making it harder for competitors to compete especially if their product is popular.

    We're all familiar with the traditional model as we've seen this over the years with all manufacturers, Fuji seems to be taking a bolder approach, it would be interesting to see what their long term strategy is.

    The compact market has been decimated by smartphones and tablets. DSLR sales are down big time and while Nikon is just sitting there, waiting to be the next Kodak, Canon has started to take their mirrorless APS-C line a little more seriously. Sony has taken over the lead in Mirrorless sales with, believe it or not, Fuji a not too distant second. Micro 4/3, once the king of the hill, is now a distant third and Panasonic, bleeding serious red ink, has begun slashing budgets big time at a number of divisions, including the camera division. But, even with that, sales are down for everyone as the ever shrinking camera customer pie continues to get smaller. No doubt, never ending sales at Fuji, that can be quicklyended when there is a market upturn is not a bad strategy.
