Re: X-T3 vs X-T4 (current and future differences)

I would be dubious about what, if anything will be coming to the XT4 in future.  If you’re happy with it now and the price difference is worth it now, then go for it - but don’t buy it in the expectation that it’s going to change massively through firmware, as there’s no guarantee of that at all.  The XT3 hasn’t been particularly well served in that regard (compared to previous models) and the XT4 has the unenviable distinction of reusing the same sensor and processor originally introduced with the XT3 in 2018.

At some point in the near future, Fuji will move away from that pairing and introduce a new sensor - and history has proven that when that happens, they pretty much immediately drop any further development of the previous sensor/processor combo, concentrating their firmware nous on getting the best out of the new generation.

Now maybe that’s still a while away... but maybe it’s not.  The XH2 is still looming somewhere on the horizon, and is going to have to be cutting edge.
