(unknown member): "Made in Japan".

Nice!

@DPR: Did you have the chance to test if the lock switch on the grip is linked to the lock menu in the camera ?

The camera looks really good.. A bit step forward from the X-T3 but the screen (for photo)

It’s made in China, afaik.

Hubertus Bigend: "The X-T3's screen is arguably a better choice for stills shooting" because it has a less versatile screen? I really wish people would stop spreading the false news that more versatile screens would only help videographers. The first interchangeable lens camera with a fully articulating screen was a DSLR that didn't even do video! Ever since I owned it I do not want screens with less degrees of freedom anymore, because the fully articulating kind can ease photography in many situations and locations and significantly more than a simple tilt mechanism can.

I’m in the “tilt screen is the only screen I want on my camera” camp. Wedding and event photographer here. Will buy a FAS camera over my dead body.

Advent1sam: Sorry Fuji, I could NEVER get a cam from a company that makes iso100 film and NEVER puts a native iso100 on their crop bodies!

Why can't you provide the most basic function of all and yet can provide everything else!

Hi there, DtBB's alt account! LOL

I can't TRUST it would like with OTHER companies.

wasTF: "Many of those who've been keenly anticipating a direct X-T3 replacement will be a little disappointed by the X-T4"

I wonder why start the " FIRST IMPRESSIONS" so harsh? Itsnt it a great camera overall, why anticipate or even tell pleople to be negative.. just a little bit more from your impressions would be nice and grounded, also humble... Thanks. To be clear, i am not saying this might not be a true statement, just you dont know everybody that owns a xt3 (me neither) ;-)

No, that statement is exactly right. If you were expecting a direct replacement, you likely WILL be a little disappointed. I know I was incredibly disappointed.

Mariano Pacifico: $200.00 more for IBIS and additional metals.
Don't need 4 more FPS
Don't need IBIS
Don't need additional 70 grams of weight
Don't need 1 more UHSII slot
Don't need weather sealing
Don't need additional shots per full charge of battery

I am not pro. I am casual advanced photographer. XT-3 is good enough for me.

@Mariano Pacifico, "Why do they build small-sensor camera for pros? Pros' requirements are full frame and over-the-top specs."

Eh? Pro here. X-T3 all day long. Two of them.

Andrew Elliott: Very nice all-rounder.
What this release does most for me is put the price of the new Olympus Em1 mk iii into perspective. The XT4 is £49 cheaper in the UK and its spec-sheet reads more impressively in many areas, such as sensor size & EVF resolution. All things considered, I’m getting the Em1 iii !

Did I misread you? The X-T4 is cheaper and better so you're definitely getting the Olympus??

jnd: I thought it will be mediocre update with mostly parameter changes but I'm pleasantly surprised to find the remodelled user interface and finding that I agree with pretty much every change. It's many small things that make for great experience and comfortable handling. Camera is a tool first and when it's awkward or not enjoyable to use the best specs don't matter, for example Sony with their dreaded menus was slower to attract new users.

"Camera is a tool first and when it's awkward or not enjoyable to use the best specs don't matter"

Well said! That's why I'm not upgrading my two X-T3s. That screen is awful.

focalphotography: I thought photographers don't need IBIS - was this not a mantra pf the X-T3 when released.

I guess now killing the X-H video line it makes sense for this to be a hybrid shooter.

X-H line alive and well. Show me where you saw Fuji kill it?

Shame about the screen. I realise vloggers desperately want to see themselves. But it’s completely unusable for my style of discrete wedding and event photography where I use the tilt screen dozens of times an hour to quickly and easily and discretely shoot from the waist or ground level, or get overhead shots. Ugly, obvious, awkward, unintuitively off the lens axis, prone to damage in crowds, looks like you’re filming, eurgh. Was ready to buy two, but am forced to stick with my 3s and hope the AF improvements are ported with firmware.

eno2: It's a nice camera, to bad it has an X-Trans sensor and not a Bayer pattern one. :(

I can't stand the X-Trans waxiness and artifacts!

Waxiness? Worms?

Eeeeshk someone doesn’t know how to process their raw files properly.
