backordered. the question i have though would be is the reason why they offer with battery grip because the batteries on this camera drain fast, thus a need for one?

One battery can easily go for 400 shots which for most casual shooters is more than enough for a day. I never use the battery grips and even for a professional shooter would be easier to just swap batteries. Takes 2 seconds. It seems many people prefer a larger grip because of large hands or what not. I think this one also has an headphone jack so unless you plan to use that I would just sell it off for an even better deal.

Thanks for info. I think many are hesitant to buy it since it is almost as large as a DSLR

I just bought combo with 8-16mm. I was previous owner of XT2 until I lost it. Only reason why they selling because of XT3. Very good deal. Get the package sell the lens = box cost you around 400$ less

I prefer the idea of selling the battery grip and just carry the extra batteries in a bag or pocket. The lenses in the bundle they offer are a keeper. They're selling because it looks like the XH2 will come out in Feb 2020

I bought the camera and grip (come with 3 batteries). Me and the wife have everything Nikon. She loves the Fuji for normal photos. She still needs the Nikon for low light theater photos (long lenses with fast apertures). We bought a used copy of the Fuji 16mm f1.4 (wow, it is the sharpest lens I've ever seen). I've also been having fun with old Nikon and canon manual focus lenses adapted to the Fuji body. The in body stabilization (IBIS) gives these old lenses the equivalent of vibration reduction. It's a fun system.
