Huh? What do you mean "not available"? By what information have you determined that the popularity is down?

Fuji is popular locally and getting much more popular with their Xt-1, X-T10 and x70/x100 cameras being carried at both big box stores and local camera stores. The local camera stores have said they are having trouble keeping up with demand. If anything I feel their popularity is growing.

Fuji are on a roll, they're making tremendous quality kit, lenses and sensors, a lot of pro's use Fuji as their 'fun' camera. The film side of things is slowly winding down into a niche product, but that's hardly surprising. No, Fuji are going from analogue to digital in great style, something Kodak singularly failed to do.

In the late 1960's early 70's I could only dream of owning the latest Fuji 35mm camera.

Khloe....are you pulling our legs LOL!!!

Talking to friends in the camera retail sector they're seeing a lot of their Micro 4/3 customers shifting towards fuji. Very few shift back to M43 after investing into fuji.

I guess it all comes down to the type of photography they are into. For a person not interested in action photography the Fuji system is methodically designed with good quality glass aprox in the $1000 range.

My secondary supplemental "fun" system has been with M43. I bought into fuji strictly for entertainment factor and because of it I've already dumped 3 M43 lenses and 1 m43 body (still own a panasonic gh3 and 2 lenses for casual video application)
