My takes on actual Fujifilm situation

My Fuji love started with the X-T10, I even did a blog about it, got the 23mm f2 meanwhile to replace the average XC 16-50, then the X-T20, the XF 16 f1.4 and the X-T3 that replaced the X-T20.

I must say it was a great evolution for me coming from the Nikon D90, but as a tech lover I always want to upgrade my stuff from time to time.

I took great photos with the X-T3 + mighty 16 but sometimes I have found the DR a bit limiting, bracketing is hit and miss specially that we don't have a software with dedicated RAF treatment that can also do bracketing, I hope C1 will do it one day.

The cameras that can beat the X-T3 as DR are the FF from Sony and Medium format of Fuji (which cost a leg specially for an amateur photographer like me) and their lenses are pretty heavy.

I hope the X-T4 will get a better DR, as well as a 32mp if not more MP for crop sake as it's very useful for a wide lens like the 16mm

As for the lenses, as much as I love my 16 f1.4 I find it sometimes slightly heavy and a bit too wide, while the 23mm f2 was a bit too narrow lol, I guess 18mm is the perfect angle but the thing is that the actual model has an average sharpness specially borders and AF which won't do with my landscapes photos.

So my wish list:

-X-T4 with better DR, larger grip and battery and higher MP

-MKII of the 18mm f2 with better sharpness and AF , F1.4 instead of f2 even if we have to lose the pancake size form

To tell the truth I am  very tempted to jump into the A7R3 train if the X-T4 doesn't show a good evolution, though it will be a used one and I will have to get an expensive and heavy 24mm f1.4 to be on the level of the 16mm f1.4
