    If you’re interested, think seriously about one of the slightly older models. The reviews online overstate the improvements vs. the last generation (X-T2 and X-Pro2). The T2 and Pro2 were much upgraded in their lifespans through firmware updates and these are better than the early reviews for those products. There are differences in focussing and some additional video features (if you use those) but there are no practical improvements in image quality except at the extremes of ISO. I thought it was a disappointing update and not enough to call it a full version upgrade. Not a worthwhile upgrade if you have a T2.Good camera but marked down to temper expectations.

    For people moving to Fuji for the first timeYes the X-T3 is quite a game-changer for Fuji and if you have been holding back then now is a good time to go with Fuji. Fuji’s X system is now mature with a great lens line up, flashes (check out Godox for Fuji – superb !!) and accessories. The X-T3 sees Fuji’s AF finally mature to the extent that it can more or less match the very best AF offered by mirrorless cameras, which has tended to be the AF in Sony’s mirrorless a7 and 9 line of cameras. With this camera Fuji offers very sophisticated and responsive AF that seems to perform very well, even in low light and when tracking fast moving subjects during sports and action photography, birds in flight, etc.The body is an evolution of the X-T1 and X-T2 and feels solid and well-built in the hand, allaying any possible fears folks may have had about the move to a Chinese production location for this model (and do we worry about iPhones being made in China? – no !). Ergonomics for this size and form factor are superb – Fuji’s all manual dial layout takes a little getting used to, but works supremely well – the joy of having a manual dial for things like ISO, shutter speed and exposure compensation can not be emphasised enough. The EVF is superb and now has a locking dioptre adjustment dial – nice touch ! It is big, bright and clear and there are lots of options for what is displayed – you really will not miss an OVF in time.Image quality from the new sensor is excellent – very decent high ISO, excellent colour and tonality, very good resolution. It really does perform very well and allows large gallery size prints or cropping into the image without losing quality.Fuji has an excellent lens line up now and an exciting road map for new lenses. And those Fuji lenses – they are sharp and beautifully made, with superb bokeh and colour most of the time. Look for lenses with the newer linear motors if you want the very fastest AF with the X-T3 but the older lenses are also superb. I highly recommend the primes, but the 16-55 f2.8 zoom is a stunning pro grade lens as well, that matches the X-T3 very well.This Fuji also is a very sophisticated camera when it comes to video, now being more or less competitive with Panasonic’s mirrorless cameras when it comes to video.For people upgrading from other Fuji modelsYes this is a worthy upgrade to the X-T1 or X-T2, especially in terms of AF and video (see above). Face detection and AF-C and tracking performance are much more reliable and faster. The camera also breathes a new lease of life into some of the older slower focusing lenses in the Fuji line-up like the venerable but awesome 35mm f1.4. Paired with the newer lenses with linear motors AF is very snappy indeed. The body feels very tight and well put together – at least as good as the X-T1 and X-T2. The EVF is also a step-up in terms of clarity and refresh rate. I would say a very worthy upgrade if you want better AF for sports/action and/or better video. If those subjects don’t interest you then maybe stick with your X-T1 or X-T2? Moving from an X-H1 is more debatable – I prefer the X-H1 body in many ways, especially with the bigger lenses, but the X-T3 definitely has faster and more reliable AF, and better video performance, so again, if they are paramount to you, the X-T3 is a good move. Note that if you move up from a T2 to the T3 do not expect much difference in IQ as the performance of the two sensors is very similar in terms of resolution and high ISO noise performance, as well as colour and dynamic range. Obviously it is a bigger move from the T1 as you gain more resolution and better high ISO and DR.The two elephants in the roomOK so we can’t really afford not to mention these two slight fly in the ointment issues: (1) there is no IBIS in the X-T3. Some swear by IBIS, some say it degrades IQ (I don’t find that to be true), some say it is more of use for video shooters (I don’t find that true either – think dark church and museum interiors for example !!). It is true that Fuji has an IBIS equipped camera in the bigger X-H1 (excellent camera !) and that most competitor mirrorless cameras have IBIS. You need to decide if you need IBIS or not and make your choice. It works pretty well in the X-H1 so if you wish to go Fuji and really want IBIS look at that camera. Maybe it will come in the X-T4 but that will be at least 18 months away I imagine. Of course the other elephant in the room issue is full frame – at a time when Nikon and Canon are releasing new full frame systems, and Sony already has them, while Panasonic say something FF is coming eventually from them, Fuji steadfastly stick with APS-C. There are endless comparisons made in the DPR forums about APS-C versus FF in terms of noise performance and resolution. My own take on this is that you need to consider what you actually NEED for your photography, rather than be swayed by the hyperbole about FF and the brand wars and loyalties that make every comparison far from objective. I find APS-C does the job for me nearly all of the time, when shooting for both personal or pro uses. But I do have a FF system from Sony (an a99ii) and will turn to that sometimes when ultimate low light performance is critical. The things to note are (1) you can absolutely get the shallow DOF look with APS-C if that is what you want – you do not need FF for that; (2) you can and do get superb resolution from APS-C – very close to FF; (3) noise performance of these newer APS-C sensors is extremely good and remember that Fuji has some great lenses that feature OIS, so armed with those lenses and this camera you may not have to crank things up to super high ISOs anyway. Many pros and amateurs manage just fine with APS-C – don’t let the hype around FF convince you that you NEED FF when the likelihood is that most of us don’t.ConclusionsA great release from Fuji – very competitive sensor, superb AF, great ergonomics, very sophisticated video options. Power consumption better than some previous models but buy at least 2 batteries !
