Re: What Fuji camera to purchase with best JPEG?

Using both FX and DX Nikon cameras for last 15 years, I would like to add a Fuji system.

I am shooting RAW+JPEG.

With all my Nikon cameras ability to fine tune the images inside the camera and by using different Picture Controls etc, I still not able to get JPEGs which will be good enough (al least for my taste). Still need to proceed RAW files to get intended results.

Due some reasons I can't spend a hours against computer monitor and proceed my RAW files so I need to get a best JPEG imaged straight from the camera with no post-processing (or with as less as possible).

After reading some reviews and opinions on the forums I see that many people highly valuated Fuji cameras exactly for good quality JPEG photos.

So my question- what is the best Fuji body/lens to get good IQ photos straight from the camera?

Photography is my serious hobby and I intend to buy different Fuji lenses as well.

I am shooting a lot during travels (means landscapes and street photography) and some events.

Not interested in video.

Low weight and small size of camera are secondary. Most important is IQ of JPEG files SOOC.

User's practical recommendations will be highly appreciated.

PS. I put same question on the Forum "Camera...buying Advice" and got recommendation to ask directly on the Fuji X-System Forum

Any of the current Fujifilm bodies such as theX-H1, X-T2, X-T3, X-T20, X-T30, X-E2, X-E3, X-Pro2, or the new X-Pro3 are going to deliver outstanding SOOC JPEGs. However since you have qualified your query with, "Most important is IQ of JPEG files SOOC" then your major consideration is going to be your lens selection rather than any of the bodies listed above. In this case pairing any of those Fuji bodies with some of the very good Fuji glass will give you the quality SOOC JPEG files you seek.

Your task is going to decide on the type of photography you want to engage in, and find the best glass to match your purpose. Each of us have our individual peculiarities when it comes to photo gear selection, and the choices we make.

For some of us it is a never ending quest. My four Fuji bodies and eight lenses somewhat overstate that dilemma. Regardless of your decision, just have fun with your photography.
