I think that Fuji screwed the pooch on this one. After putting IBS in the X-H1 (yipee!) they decided to leave it out of the XT-3. So no, I'm not thinking of getting one. Maybe the XT-4?

The Fuji IBIS doesnt fit the small bodies,when XH-2 comes with the XT3 goodies,it will be stabilised.

I just got one. Itíll be my Birds In Flight camera. Iíll leave the macro and landscape stuff for my K-1. I wanted to use the X-T3ís front and rear dials to control the aperture and shutter respectively, ŗ la K-1, but alas, that is simply not possible, so my muscle memory has to consider another workflow. BTW, I shot with Pentax SLRs back in the 80s, so using the aperture ring on my new Fujinon lens and the top-mounted shutter speed control on the X-T3 is not a big issue. But still.

Fuji withhold IBIS as a "premium" feature to go into only their most expensive cameras and it looks like that doesn't include even the "T" series.

I'd love an X-T3 but no money for it

Will most likely be getting a silver one this month or the next. Interested in the video functionality on a stabilizer.

No IBIS, no sale. This was one of the possible cameras that I had considered a while ago, but the lack of IBIS was a deal killer for me. Maybe the X-T4.....

IBIS is too big to fit in the XT-3 body so you will be waiting a long time. If you want IBIS with XT-3 features then you will have to wait on the X-H2.

I don't think people understand how much space IBIS takes.

Got a silver one. Looks so retro sexy. The new AF has significantly improved over XT-2 and I was quite happy with XT-2 given I had used K3II for years.

^ Nice!

Everyone is making a leaps & bounds advancement in AF performance & now Fujifilm has take a major step forward in that area too. I've seen a few X-T3 videos & have read some reviews already. As far as overall performance, this might be the new leader in APS-C cameras. The D500 only beats it by a hair as far as AF performance for stills go, but it does very poorly in video. This is where the X-T3 blows it out of the water. It's AF system is still leaps & bounds better than a lot of other DSLR & mirrorless cameras out there & it can do video quite well. I wonder what they'll do a few years from now with the X-T4.

Hopefully Ricoh puts some effort in to the AF system in the upcoming K-3II replacement. It doesn't have to be on the level of the D500, 7D II, or even the X-T3, but hopefully it'll be a lot better than anything Pentax currently has or has ever released.

I don't think Ricoh has an answer.

It amazing to see how bad the AF was on the X-Pro 1 and then see the XT-3. Fuji has done an amazing job improving their products and listening to their customers. I understand why people love the company and products.

i was going to buy one, until i handled one. hated the dials, hated the lack of grip. then looking at features or lack thereof i ended up with an olympus em1 mkii. no regrets. yes the m43 isn't the same as apsc, but the em1 was the same price as the xt3, similar lens selection, and a feature set that's not even comparable.


i'd say go play with one before buying.

The OMD-EM1-2 is a great camera with some really good glass for it. I would take one over any Canon APS-C body. It easily holds its own against the majority of APS-C cameras sold. AF is really fast and accurate. Best feature set of any camera on the market.
