Re: X-T30

I have an X-T10, which of course bears the same relationship to the X-T1. It is an excellent little camera and i am perfectly happy with it. The X-Txxs are all the same size, and they are distinctly smaller and lighter than their big brothers; the have a simpler build, fewer features, one less dial on the top plate and a smaller viewfinder.

The big point of controversy is their size/ ergonomics/handling. They fit some people perfectly. Other people find them too small and the controls too crowded. The first group finds them utterly charming, the second will tell you they are cheap and nasty. I honestly think you just have to pick one up to find out. I wanted one from the first moment I touched it.

A related concern is handling/pointability with Fuji's larger lenses. I think the X-Txx cameras work best with smaller primes. So do I, so that's fine- I have the 35mm f/1.4 and the 60mm for mine. If you want to use the bigger, heavier primes and the large zooms, you may be better off with a larger X-Tx camera.

I think that's a fair analysis. The X-T30 really stepped up in the computing side of it coming much closer to the X-T3, versus the previous gen (I have both the T2/T20); this shows up on the video side especially in closely matching capabilities.

I believe DPR or Fuji made a mistake about the depth measurement - I suspect that the new body is 41mm deep just as is the X-T20, not the 47mm stated.

Possibly the joystick will allow for less of a cluttered feel, but Fuji very likely made an unforced error moving the Q button onto the thumb rest. Very odd.
