Fujifilm has just announced the $1,500 X-T3, which is the latest addition to the company’s X Series lineup of APS-C mirrorless cameras. It’s the follow-up to 2016’s X-T2, a beloved camera — among Fujifilm shooters, anyway — that’s grown more powerful and capable over time thanks to a bevy of firmware updates. The X-T2 of today is an entirely different beast than when I first tested it. Its autofocus, video capabilities, and subject tracking have all been extensively fine-tuned. But having hit the ceiling for what it can get out of the X-T2, Fujifilm has decided that now’s the time for new hardware
The Fuji X-T2 is probably my favorite stills camera of all time. It’s light, powerful, and produces amazing images.
I doubt I’ll buy the X-T3 at launch because the improvements are so incremental. But once this puppy drops in price in a year or two, I’ll definitely be picking one up. If you are just dipping your toe into mirrorless cameras, I have no reservations about recommending pretty much anything in Fuji’s lineup.
