Fujifilm X-T40 to be Announced in early 2021

Fujifilm X-T40 to be announced in early 2021. According to recent reports the mid-range APS-c mirrorless camera is scheduled to arrive in 2021.

The camera will feature the same sensor as seen on the Fuji X-T4 and the major core specification of the shooter will remain the same.  Fuji added the IBIS in the X-T4 but we don’t expect IBIS to be in the X-T40 for marketing purposes.

The highly anticipated Sony FE 12-24mm f/2.8 GM lens will be delayed and expected to be announce in late 2020 due to the coronavirus outbreak.
