Fuji sent me one to play with for a few weeks. I agree with the concensus amongst pro photographers and reviewers that it is not a replacement for the X-T2, rather an expansion of the line. On paper, the increased size may seem nominal but add it all up and in real life you get a completely different sized camera. Also, it is much more of a menu driven camera. The X-T2, while having the ability to set everything to auto and hand it to a new shooter, also has the tactile controls that us control freaks and former film photographers missed when digital came around. It has become to me what my Leicas were for film, especially paired with a small lens. I can travel with a small prime and forget I’m even wearing my camera, using the CapturePro clip on my belt. To me this new camera is more in the market of the Nikons I got away from. I am picking up a Fuji GFX after much comparison with the Hasselblad X1D and renting both for shoots. The truth is, there is little that I can’t do with my X-T2 but when a client is paying $20k+ for one day of shooting, they expect to see big gear, especially in-studio. So basically if you want Fuji’s version of a Nikon or Canon, get the new camera. If you want a luxurious, slowed down, Leica-esque crafting of an image, get the X-T2. If you bave someone carrying your equipment or are doing studio shoots for wealthy clients or corporate jobs, go medium format, ifnonly for their satisfaction.
