Any news of an X-T5 ?

Already a FujiFilm owner with a X-T2 and several prime and Zoom lenses. I love the system.  I'm thinking of buying an X-T4 to get the enhanced video features that I'd like.  However, because of the low trade in price for my mint X-T2 I'm thinking I'll keep the X-T2 as a second body; not worth getting rid of it for what I get for it.

I hesitated before pressing the buy button though in case of an upcoming X-T5.  TBH I am not sure what that could add over and above the X-T4.  Any intel or theories on the possibilities of that??  In any event,  I may wait for potential Holidays and New Year deals I think.

Thanks,

Probably two years out before any real news.

The XT-4 is too new to worry about that.  It should not impact any current upgrade decision.  There is always a new model a year or two out.  That is the way it is.

If you are feeling the itch then it is time if you can spend the money.

Re: Any news of an X-T5 ? Possibly 2021/2022

X-Tx series usually gets updated in some 2 years period, with X-T4 being more of an anomaly (most probably due to expected Olympics), announced in February 2020 (to be released in April 2020), but reusing the same sensor and processor as X-T3, previously released in September 2018.

Thus, if any previous "schedule" remains, we really shouldn`t see X-T5 for at least (almost) a year, but more realistically somewhere in 2022. - and that most probably with X-H2 being announced and released first, being the forebearer of new sensor/processor generation (to be subsequently inherited by X-T5 and others).

Re: Any news of an X-T5 ?

Thanks guys,  Yeah, indeed, always something new in a year or two and I am fine with that.  Would not want to buy now though and then the X-T5  ships in two months time, that's all.

I'll wait until any deals early in January on the X-T4.  Often deals come up then, maybe they throw a new battery in or a few bucks off the price.

Good grief. The X-T4 came out zero years ago!

Thanks,

The X-T4 came out this year so we most likely won't get any news about an X-T5 until the end of next year at the earliest. The X-H2 will however probably come out next year and the X-T5 will of course have similiar specs. The X-T5/X-H2 will most certainly have a new sensor at least. Probably also better AF, improved video specs, a new EVF, maybe better IBIS etc. Perhaps even a global shutter?

???

I asked a simple question. April 20' is when the XT4 came out. Assuming a release cadence of a year or so then I assumed maybe the "5" was maybe scheduled in summer and wondered if anyone more learned than me knew anything more specific..... Isn't it reasonable to ask this question before making a $2000 investment?

Thanks to the others who answered more constructively.  Will wait until the holidays and purchase a X-T4.

The XT4 will take some beating, it’s got everything people asked for. Only when they’re in a position to meaningfully upgrade the sensor and have mastered the kind of AF that Sony has will they upgrade. 2 years minimum.

Thanks,

Best case scenario it will come in Summer 2021, worst case it will be during Fall 2021

The X-T4 came just 1.5 year after the x-t3, the x-t4 is already 8 months old so you still have more or less 10 months left

And the X-T2 came 2.5 years after the X-T1.  And the X-T3 came 2 years after that.

So you could guess and say that the release times are getting shorter.  You could also take an average and say the release times are about 2 years apart.

Any news of an X-T5 ?

Dear KneeConWon:

I have no news.

Just purchased an used XPRO3. Don’t care if there is a new XPro or XT model. There is nothing I need or want (well, IBIS for the XPRO but let’s not go there) on a new body. What it comes down to is does the XT4 have the goods? Maybe there is a new XT5 on the horizon. As suggested on a previous response, not likely, but possible. I could win the lottery. Sorry for being rude. Here is the point. In finance there is the concept of time value of money. A dollar in your hand NOW is more valuable than money in the future. What is the value of waiting for a new model? What is the cost of lost opportunities to capture images? What would the XT5 have that is so valuable you’d postpone making your XT4 purchase now.

Your power is in the now.

I actually think the X-T4 was a special case, they wanted to get a camera out with IBIS to be more competitive. This time around I think it's going to be 2 years until the next one. So I think "worst case" will rather be some time in 2022 The X-H2 will come first and be released next year.

Re: Any news of an X-T5 ?

I also had an X-T2 and I LOVED that camera but I actually sold that and an X-H1 to get an X-T4. X-T5 isn't going to come out anytime soon, the 4 just came out. I would definitely get the X-T4 because it's an upgrade pretty much in every aspect. IBIS, faster AF, new sensor, and more megapixels. Trust me, you'll love it. They did so much to this (little) bad boy.

Ha, personally, I'd hold out for an XT5 for them to put the older Tilt screen from the XT3 back on:)  That's what the XT5 could have:)

So let's say the X-T5 comes out March 2022 and it comes out with the selfie screen again then what? He should enjoy life now instead of waiting for however long just because of a screen. The X-T4 is an awesome camera. No point in waiting, holding off, and finding more excuses, repeat, and so on.

October 2021 I bet

And fuji should use tilt screen again or else they wouldn't do the x-he alongside the x-s10 that both have flipout screens

Good deals on XT3's right now. It's perfectly fine, unless you really must have ibis.

That's what I did, grabbed an x-t3 at special price now and wait for an X-T5 in 2021, ibis is good but not at the expense of extra weight, size and flip out screen.

I hope fujifilm will do things right with the X-T5 by keeping the same size/weight and screen (but in 3.2') as x-t3. They can use the same ibis as the x-s10 which is lighter than the x-t4's one
