X100f vs X-E3 with 23mmf2

Hello all

I've previously owned an X-E1 and X-T20 but decided about a year ago to make M4/3 my main system because of weight with longer lenses (i.e Fuji 100-400 vs Panasonic 100-300). I'd mention this is because I'm now 70+ and suffer from a deal of arthritis in my hands.

I've been fairly(not completely) happy with my choice but am now looking at a light walk-around camera such as one of the above. Both I know will give me excellent IQ but I'm darned if I can make my mind up.

The cam will be used for landscapes, family shots (not studio), some video and just generally used when I don't want to take the full kit out which as I get older will be more often than previously.

As I see it, both have their strengths as follows and offer similar performance and IQ:

X100f:

Sealed

High speed flash synchro

Dual OVF + EVF

X-E3:

Can add other lenses if required (likely small primes and/or wide angle)

Supplied add-on flash

Cheaper

Do any forum members own or have used both and can anyone offer an opinion and point out anything else I ought to be thinking about.

Many thanks,

John
