Great review! My first contact with digital cameras was a Sony with floppy discs, from the company I worked for many years ago. My first was a Minolta F300. I have some nice California pictures in my HD, from that road trip, and the images are still of good quality by today’s standards.

I have a X-E3. To make it a better camera, in my view, IBIS and a bigger EVF. AF, sensor, processor, IQ, are good enough. Fixed screen is also not an issue.

NexUser: Is AF cannot match M50 and Eos RP? So how can it get gold award?

@Mzk, I also have a X-E3 and I do not have problems with AF. I do not have the 35 1.4, that is known to be a slow focusing lens, though. My slow AF lens is the 27mm 2.8, but I have no complains so far. I came from Nikon (D610) and they are comparable.

sergiotous: No news on the rumored cancellation of the XE line? :( Those of us expecting a X-E4 next year are worrying about.

@Stone Jack, as I said, similar sensors, but very different cameras. X-E3 all-day with light lenses for street, people, family, industrial work pictures. X-T3 with heavy 10-24 for landscape, architecture. X-T3 with heavy 100-400 for wildlife (mostly safaris) and my kids playing soccer (or football, depending where you live).

Artem Holstov: I hope that Fuji reconsiders their decision to drop the xe line. XE2 was my favourite camera and this form-factor is perfect for me.

@Holstov, couldn’t agree more. A X-E4 would be great! X-E2 form-factor, IBIS (for non-OIS primes), no vídeo, recessed non-touch fixed LCD, built-in small flash, better battery life. Current sensor and AF is more than enough for me. Hope that no video and non-touch fixed LCD screen would keep prices reasonable.

miric: Yes, we will continue production of obsolete and crappy x-trans even after crisis.

@miric: you are right and all other photographers are wrong...are you sure? Could your issues be for a different reason?

forest dream: XC 35mm F2 issue is the plastic mount which unknown how long can use

Your concerns are right. But it will all depend on what Fujifilm wants: lower the cost or the weight. We have plastics that handle friction and pressure better than “regular” metal.

I have a X-T3 and a X-E3. They are very different beasts. My X-E3 is always with me, attached to a 27mm (80%) or a 18-55mm (20%). My X-T3, on the other hand, is carried in a bag, with lenses, cables, batteries and, most of the time, a tripod.
I would really like to see a new X-E4, with better EVF, more rugged, recessed fixed non-touch LCD, IBIS, better battery life, no video, 4-button back again. Current sensor and AF is more than I need. This X-E4 with good small primes and lighter (non-OIS) zooms would be my dream system. I think no video, fixed non-touch LCD would keep prices more reasonable.

JoaoPedroAB: If you time and patience, allow me to indicate you this photo gallery, whose (79) pictures were taken about 40 years during my student time in Paris (film camera Olympus OM-2n and mostly TRI-X were used for it).

Thanks for considering it. JP

Wow! Stunning classy images.

Mupepe: I am curious: why this lens does not have an aperture dial with f-stops, like primes, considering it keeps the same aperture when zooming? Same with my 10-24.

Sure, TJN! Now I see it. Thanks! Unfortunately10-24 does not have the f-stop marks...

I have just downloaded and tried this new version (never used this sw before). Nice layout and features, but I found it extremely slow, considering I am using a powerful Windows PC.

On article DPReview TV: Fujifilm X-T30 first impressions review (112 comments in total)

Hope to see these upgrades on a future X-E4. i prefer the rangefinder style (I have a big nose...). But I also hope they make it taller! Both my X-E2 and X-E3 have these “hand” grips attached just to make them a litlle bit taller, but it’s not enough for my hands. I also think that the articulated screen on this new Canon RP (and other Canon models) is more practical to use and protects the screen when it is not used. Is it a Canon patent?

Fuji, give us the option to have EVF only and engage LCD screen when using buttons, like “Menu”, “Play” (already implemented!!!), “Q”, “Drive”, etc. This will probably save a lot of battery life.This is the way we work with OVF cameras, like DSLRs...:)

is this high ISO performance a deliberated trade-off between detail and noise? Can we equalize high ISO shots from X-T2 and X-T3 in post?

stevo23: Wait - I thought this was free for Fuji camera owners. It's not, it's a trial. Is the free version not out yet?

The free version is ready for downloading.

Mupepe: Richard, one of the things that could help battery life is an EVF/LCD option to use EVF engaged by sensor and LCD engaged by pressing "menu", "Q" and other buttons. This is the behaviour of a DSLR...I have been asking for this feature (actually another option for EVF/LCD scheme) for a long time. Does this new camera has it?

badi, I have a X-E2 (fw4) and a X-E3. None of them have this option. When in "EVF only + eye sensor" mode you can browse your pictures on LCD pressing the "play" button, but that is all...nothing happens when you press "menu" or "Q". Or better saying, you will see the menu ou Q screen on the EVF...

I bought a Nikon J1 + 10-30 + 30-110 for 299 and used it a lot, until both lenses "died". Very compact package, very good AF, good images in good light. Used for more than 6 years with no regrets.

BostonBoy: This morning I spend several hours on the V1.6x Trial SW. Like many others I’m looking at an Adobe replacement. Offering LR as CC only going forward has put me over the edge. After DxO, Capture One, and specialized solutions (such as Phocus) I’m looking for several things as a non-professional user: a) moderate rich functionality for ALL my RAW files, b) contained cost, and c) a solid go-forward path (not necessarily with a Digital Asset Mgmt Solution as I have a clearly structured WF and file system archive.

I just developed X-Trans and Bayer files from 3 modern cameras (D850, XT-2, X1D) with very pleasing result. Could this really be my new “grand unified solution”?!

I will keep testing. Judgement is still out, but it certainly piqued my interest.

I am trying Affinity1.6 as well. I have a reasonably fast PC (i7 + 16Gb + SSD + 4Gb card) and my X-E3 RAF files takes 33-35 sec to open...anyone with the same performance issue?
