Fujifilm GFX 50S Shortages? Delay?

It’s unclear if Fujifilm is talking about shortages or a full blown delay, but “it is expected that this situation will be resolved after about 1 month.” doesn’t sound great.

Medium format mirrorless digital camera “FUJIFILM GFX 50S” and “Fujinon GF lens” Delivery notice
February 22, 2017
FUJIFILM Corporation

Dear customers,

Thank you for your continued patronage of Fujifilm products.

Since the release date of February 15th, since we received reservations that are far beyond our expectations, medium size mirrorless digital cameras “FUJIFILM GFX 50S”, “FUJINON GF LENSES” and special accessories are available for production We are in a situation where we can not catch up with orders.

Therefore, it may take days to deliver the product you ordered for a while.
I am sorry really for causing inconvenience to our customers.
We are working diligently to produce, and it is expected that this situation will be resolved after about 1 month.
Thank you for your understanding.

      I don’t understand what your issue with Hassy is. They are delivering the X1D to some of their customers now, after a delay. Now Fuji also seem to be facing a delay. Both companies seem to have underestimated demand in a big way. Fuji hasn’t shipped a single camera to a customer. All demo users who have reviewed the GFX on the internet have only been allowed to save jpegs – this indicates that profiles for LR are not 100% ready yet. There is some debate as to whether the camera will be supported by CaptureOne – one Fuji product manager said yes, another said no, PhaseOne US dealers are saying no, PhaseOne haven’s said anything. I think your are doing justice to your nickname at this point, my friend.

        Watch Out! At Tribal Counsel Tonight…U may get voted off the Island! To be truly real…Hassy what coming up a year now..announced a camera u have not held or even seen in person…like me and many others..and they released this week a Firmware Update on that very elusive invisible camera… and gone through 2 CEO’S ever since. Just stating the true facts Ma’am. OH by the way when they did announce that elusive, invisible camera..only One Lens was avail. Almost a year later they added one more 50mm large as your Mom’s Buick. lol
