Aden is an official Fuji dealer, reputable and will give you the best prices in Canada. Fuji is their main brand. Ask for Andy, he's a good guy and doesn't screw around..
The prices on their website are mandated by Fuji, but they will give you a better price than what's listed. You can request a quote by email. If you don't want to buy at Aden ( no reason not to) you can use that quote to try get Henry's to pricematch (you can request Henry's pricematch by email as well)
Aden has the best prices because they don't have to recycle returns---- "All sales are final. Aden Camera offers 10 days for exchange on defective merchandise only"
I emailed Aden for a quote and I was quite disappointed with the price. It's only slightly cheaper. I'm actually better off buying from Amazon even though I won't get the battery grip. I have no intention of keeping the grip anyways. I was hoping to sell the grip and save even more money, but the price differential is too small and I rather not go through the hassle of selling it through CL.

You're still better off buying with Aden. What happens if your camera needs repairs? Amazon won't help you at all, you'll have to pay to ship it to Fujifilm yourself and deal with their subpar service center. Whereas Aden can help you deal with everything during the length of your warranty.

I bought my XT1 from Aden and I got a great deal from them... but when I had an issue with the shutter speed dial on my XT1, I went straight to Fuji and they weren't bad... They did forget to give me back my camera battery, but quickly shipped me a brand new on as a replacement.

Anyone know when fuji sales usually occur? I want to pick up an xt20, but i wouldn't mind waiting if there are any sales later in the year. Also, do you find mirrorless sensors get dirty easier compared to dslr? I currently have a nikon d610, but looking to switch to something much lighter and easier to travel with.

Fuji Canada used to have sales twice a year, but not anymore. I don't think they've had one since the XT-2 was released, You could call a dealer and ask if there are any in the pipeline.

The condensation trapped in the EVF glass on the inside after 20 minutes...

Before it was half covered... After 30 minutes it was all gone...

===

Shot this with the X-T2 and XF 50mm in the rain wearing only a rain coat the other night...

Outside from 8pm until 12:30am in the rain all night... Body and Lens held up in the rain...

Only thing I didn't consider was condensation from placing the camera from my bag and then taking it out to shoot... It could had been the humidity outside but I think it was my bag...

Interior of the EVF glass was fogged up for about 30 minutes then the condensation disappeared...

Anyone else have experiences with the elements outside?

Here's the link to register: https://fujifilmslatest.splashthat.com/
It's on September 17, 9:45 - 12 according to the FB event.

Interesting - I thought that it was going to be during CNE so that there would be lots of people to photograph... although I guess that's fraught with potential controversy, especially if people get angry about consent and photography.

Has anyone been to these photowalks with Fuji? How are they?

Is anyone looking forward to the X-E3 announcement? I am, as I'd like to replace my aging X-E1. It is supposed to happen tomorrow.
Nice. I'm hoping the new E3 will knock the pricing down in the e2. I want an upgrade to my e1 but don't want to pay the $ for new.
