Has the X70 been discontinued?

    I was thinking of acquiring one, possibly second hand, and did a trawl of the shops to see prices. Hardly any are carrying new X70s. It seemed like an underrated camera that was in the shadow of Fuji's own X100 series, and competitors like Ricoh's GR, but was a good camera in its own right. Not perfect (especially video), but a fine street tool.

    Based on the number of forum conversations my impression is sales weren't great. Has the X70 been axed?

    NO such thing as a X70s...I bought mine used on Ebay, works great and much cheaper than new

    All the 16MP cameras are finished. It would not surprise me to see a new (X80?) 24MP version released in show season in January/February 2018.

    Ffordes.com has got a black one in lightly used condition for £379. Also you can pick them up from the Fujifilm refurbished shop for £399 - none available at present but keep looking as they do pop up from time to time.

    I'm guessing this is the correct answer. I hope it is.

    There is no good reason to manufacture more of them if a 24MP version is on the way :).

    Hello,

    It will be great if you could tell me where you got the information?
    I only have links from rumor sites. (except the links stated above,)

    I'm not talking about what would not surprise you to see in January/February 2018, it's personal, but about the All the 16MP cameras are finished.

    Sony no longer make the 16MP sensors. That has been widely reported.

    Announced January 2016 - so not quite 2 years yet - just ancient according to the Fuji marketing machine ..... But of course, they still know how to charge for the remainders.

    That is why I am saying Jan/Feb 2018 for the replacement model.
    Fuji are pretty consistent about releasing new models in two year intervals. There is the odd variation but the majority of models seem to get replaced every two years at the anniversary of when they were released.
