Has the Fujifilm X-T30 II range been stealthily discontinued?

It’s not very often I’ll get sad about a line of cameras being discontinued, but I think it’s a shame that the beloved Fujifilm X-T30 II range has seemingly been abandoned. Although it hasn’t officially been discontinued, we haven’t seen a new camera since the release of the X-T30 II in November 2021 – which makes me think Fujifilm wanted to quietly drop it in the hope people won’t notice or care. 

The appeal of the Fujifilm X-T30 II range came in the fact that it delivered the perfect combination of advanced features and exceptional image quality, all neatly packaged in a compact, retro-styled design. Since the release of the Fujifilm X-T1, the corresponding X-T10 / X-T20 / X-T30 range has offered photographers a versatile, affordable camera without having to compromise on performance. It was the shining little sister of the professional X-T range (without so many video features) and one of the cameras I recommended the most to enthusiast photographers when I worked at camera retailer Wex.
