Roland Karlsson: PASM and Bayer? Why Fuiji then? And no view finder. Pass!

I agree on that. That's why I own XE2.

Of course no viewfinder, it is a XA series camera.
Of course it is Bayer, it is a XA series camera.

Denton Taylor: Anyone know if it will be available body only? I have a big Fuji system and don't need this kit lens.

I asked my retailer to sell me XE-2 without kit lens at the time, and he agreed. because he had a buyer for the lens. It costs you nothing to ask.

Mike FL: Silver paint on plastic body makes this XA3 not only feels cheap on the hands but looks much cheaper than XA1 too.

Black XA1 looks ok, but only feels cheap while you hold it.

That's true, I don't understand why there isn't an all black version of this camera.

It's a 599$ camera with a lens. How can it not look cheap!?

DominicVII: No EVF, no buy. Byebye!

Of course no EVF, it's X-A series camera.

Androole: Give it an EVF and this would be a great camera. Priced well, 24MP Bayer sensor, and a touchscreen. Basically addresses most of the complaints about Fuji's current X lineup in one swoop. Except for the lack of EVF...

It would be XE-3 then. And it would be more expensive.

My style of work asks for 24mm, 28mm,35mm and 50mm, with 50mm being maybe 10-15%. 16-35, 17, 40 I've never liked, I don't like zooms generally, since I never know what focal length I'm using, except at the extremes. I don't like 24-70, for the same reason and for carriyng some extra weight because of 70mm, which I never use. I also don't like the way this lens extrudes. The primes go on my nerves since I'm constantly changing lenses.
This one is no-brainer for me. 24mm on one end, 35mm on the other. This is work of a genius! I'm surprised, shocked, happy!
