It could be only the version who are sold in China. IF you bring yours, from outside of China, it will work OK.

Wow , I dont think so, Fuji is not selling anything cheap. It's $6500 now, just look at the price of their smaller cam , like the Xt-2 at $1800. You can have a dream but it will not happen soon.

Many US company do exactly the same in many countries around the world . Why Ricoh should do more that what US company do somewhere else. This is the new reality.

How many new Phone with camera will be buit in 2017
Here's How Many Digital Photos Will Be Taken in 2017 - True Stories

Almost all tools(Software , application , lenses for phones) are mainly intented for that market. Do you thing Facebook, Goggle, snap chat and others care about DSLR photo . Absolutly not.

In 2016 , more than 1,36 billion smartphone was produce expecting almoust 1,5 billions in 2017. That were the money is for sensor, image processing chip, video chip, smartphone lense , cloud server, etc.
All digital camera brand are now niche market including Nikon and Canon and will stay that way forever.

Look here for the best price including tax . In Canada sales tax is not included and need to be added. If you are in Toronto and order from Alberta , you will pay only the Federal tax (GST who is 5% . If you order fron Henry, you will pay the fed and provincila tax who is 14,5 %.

You have the exact answer by Zeiss.


Sony/ZEISS lenses are manufactured by Sony in factories across Asia. In these factories Sony uses lens testing equipment that has been developed and manufactured by ZEISS. An example is the MTF-tester K8, a versatile and compact instrument used to measure the modulation transfer function of photographic lenses, or similar systems, at an infinite object distance.
