Getting my hands on an X-T3 on Monday so if you have any Q’s let me know here and I’ll try my best to answer them. I won’t have it for long as I have a shoot to go to in the afternoon and it’s the only one in Ireland right now so can’t steal it for a few days. Was trying to get it for the weekend to go shoot some fast kayaking but it was not meant to be :-( As it happens I get to spend the weekend away with family at the beach so I’ll get my own camera wet instead :lol:

I autofocused on an eye with the 80mm macro and it worked quickly. :)


C&C always welcomed...
On my images, of course, and on my words as well--as long as it's constructive :).

Same here, how is the face/eye AF. High ISO performance.

I’ll be curious how eye af works too. Even if it’s as good as Sony eye af I don’t think It will be enough to get the x-t2 out of my hands. But it will be something to look forward to when I up lorazepam to an x-t4 a couple years down the road :)

OK, notes made will see how I get on.

About the first time I've ever felt I was glad of OIS on a wide-angle lens, was commenting on a shot with the couple as we walked back from a location, about the train moving past with them locked in a kiss but me not having my tripod to hand. They said go for it anyway and just posed as the tram was about to pass. Not bad for handheld with a few seconds warning ;)

Just came back from a demo day... I will say the quad core in the XT3 is quite impressive. I tested my X-t2 with 16mm vs X-T3 with same 16mm lens (Fuji Reps copy) and the difference was very big. Almost like a breath of fresh air using the XT3 vs my X-t2.

The new 8-16mm lens feels like a mini fat pig Canon 85L f/1.2L on the X-t3. If you think the Fuji 16-55 is a big lens......LOL!!! The new 8-16mm will make my Sony A7iii with Gmaster 16-35f/2.8 seem close in comparison in weight!!!! Currently I'm going the Gmaster route for UWA and live with my slow 10-24mm f/4 fuji UWA.

If you're a person that owns the X-t2 and wish for better AF.....please sell it if you feel you want a responsive AF system like a D500/7dmk2. The XT3 is an extremely worthy upgrade in AF response with the very limited testing I did today.

I cannot determine the IQ as I'm not allowed to use my SD card. Even the Fuji rep did not comment if there was any high iso improvements.

Overall the Xt3 stands above the X-H1 in every regard except IBIS. Nothing remarkable looking at the X-T3 as it's just like the X-t2. According to the rep 10% potential battery savings with the more efficient use of the Quad core processor.

ISO performance is still something I really wished improved.

UWA is the 8-16mm and a photo of the 200mm.

I really need to play with an X-T3 for a week to really test it out. If I prepaid today I am guaranteed to have a new XT3 next week. I passed as the X-t3 has resolved one of the improvements I wanted. lack of IBIS and dramatic high iso improvements didn't make it on the X-t3.

hmmm time to think some more!

I recently added a used Fuji 18-55 f/2.8-4 to my collection and took this seascape while we were on holiday. What a brilliant and versatile lens.
