Praise Mount Fuji! You are beginning to see the light!

As a form of courtesy towards your fellow users of this forum, PLEASE remove the obnoxious tapatalk signature, it adds nothing to anyone’s contribution and it is only a sneaky way used by tapatalk to push their product by polluting each forum participant with promoting their products with unpaid advertising for their software and the brand of your phone. Removing it is easy and it is an act of courtesy that shows respect for all those whom are annoyed by this pointless feature. This is not a personal attack to you, the annoyance is caused by tapatalk and the phone or tablet brands, they are getting all the exposure and you gain nothing by this.

Just for my own interest, I made up a rough composite image of what I would like the X-E3 to look like, my wish, should they ever make one...


For those of us that favour a smaller range-finder camera than the X Pro 2, but with the compactness of the X100F, and the facilities of the X-T2, that is where the X-E3 slots in. And the specs, well, here are my selfish desires...

  • 24MP X-Trans Sensor
  • Same battery as X-T2/X Pro 2/X100F
  • Button-layout similar to X100F/X-T2
  • Focus point joystick / Two control dials
  • ISO combined with Shutter Speed Dial / Q-Menu Button Assignable
  • Weather-resistant
  • High-spec EVF similar to X-T2
  • Fast Single Shot-to-Shot time <0.2s
  • Better grip, similar to X-T2, maybe a touch slimmer
  • Two memory card slots, although might make the camera too fat!

Things I personally don't need, but some people do...

  • Flash
  • Articulating screen
  • Touch screen
  • 4K Video

I am sure many people will have differing opinions on this. I have no need to argue with anyone else's wishes, the more the merrier I say! I really only post this to throw some more 'positive-energy' towards Fujifilm in the hope they do produce an X-E3 sometime soon...


Pretty much what is above, improved focus and larger buffer with raw. I too love the X-E1/2/ form factor.

From where we are now I'd like X-E3 will come next year but with new ( 24MP Mark II ) sensor... my wish.

Quite simple. An x-pro 2 without OVF. Preferably OLED evf with higher magnification. And please, the joystick!, not touch screen.

I would like, of course, the upgraded sensor and the digital-tele feature of the X100f -- I like to travel light with one lens, the 18mm or 27mm. I like my X-E2, so I don't seek a lot of changes in the body. On a style note, one thing I would like would be a faux optical viewfinder window on the front of the bottom. It would accentuate the X-E3's rangefinder heritage. For those of you who think that's a bit much, consider the X-20 for instance. It has a pentaprism-like hump so that it resembles a traditional SLR but of course it does not have a pentaprism. It's just a matter of style. I'd just like to see the same style consideration for the X-E3.

At a time when the mirrorless market is trending relentlessly upwards in cost the best thing Fuji can do with the X-E3 (as they have, to their credit, done with the X-T20) is maintain their commitment to high quality affordable options. Not everyone wants to, or is able to, spend 1200, 1500, 1800 or more a camera. And for those who think there is no market for the X-E line this site shows otherwise since the poll carried out in Feb 2016 (http://www.fuji-x-fo...eras-do-you-use) showed the X-E2 to be the second most popular X model.


The X-E3 should get the core updates - the new sensor and the improved autofocus system. The rest is detail. What it should not get is a host of additional changes that drive up the price. For those who want the features found on the X-T2 or X-Pro2, buy an X-T2 or X-Pro2. The options are already there for you. For those of us who want a good quality affordable camera in the rangefinder style we're still on the X-E2s. Only Fuji knows the real size of this market, but the partial information we can pick up suggests it is significant.


Fuji, if you're listening, keep it affordable.



Thank you for this perspective.

My biggest concern would be that it would not be kept affordable. I was close to buying an X-E2s with kit lens when I got caught in all the speculation about the '3', so I have that current price in my head now.

With the new sensor and improved autofocus, it would make the ideal mate to the Pro2. And though I like the joystick on my X-Pro2, I am used to focus-and-reframe from Leica use and could forego that add-on. Now if they really could do IBIS affordably...

To be a commercial success, X-E3 needs to innovate as the X-E2 did at his time, or if using more than 18 months old technology from X-Pro2 and X-T2, the price has to drop drastically!!
I am waiting for it! ...


My X-E3 wish list:
- At least X-T2 sensor, processor, and auto-focus. (X-Trans IV and X-Processor Pro II will be nice.)
  + I don't need more mega-pixels but better high ISO behavior! (Less noise, more dynamic range.)
- Larger EVF (higher magnification) with better eyecup.
- Please bring back a dedicated view-mode button! (Memorize different "view modes" for "Shoot" and "Play-back" modes.)
- Articulated screen please.
- Fast Joystick please. (Configurable sensitivity/speed.)
- Same size than X-E1 and X-E2! Not smaller!
- Full flash support!!! (HSS, focus assist beam, ...)
- Sync speed min 1/250; Shutter speed min 1/8000, or global shutter!
- USB charging.
- Better grip, Arca-Swiss compatible. (Integrated L bracket.)
- Weather Resistant will be a plus, but not a deal breaker.
- No 4k will not be a deal breaker.
- No touchscreen will not be a deal breaker.
- Very soon please!

(Like a smaller x-pro2, without OVF but with a large EVF.)
