    pcovers got a reaction from Thea48 in Fuji XT3 vs X100F vs XE3   
    If you said you could afford two Fuji models, I would go with the X100F and the XT20 (don't overlook this option) or XT3. If you can only have one, and you wants as small a footprint as you can get while still having some lens options, I would go with the X-E3. If you are are certain that a 23mm (35mm fov on full frame) will suit the vast majority of your needs and you can only have one Fuji, I would go with the X100F.
    The XT3 is the largest and certainly gets you away from the concept that the X100F and the XE3 provides. However, having owned all the models listed above, I don't find the XT3 to be as large as some articles and reviews suggest. I guess it is all in the feel of the beholder, but I was expecting a feel or experience that was significantly different than the XT20 and, while larger, I don't find it any more challenging or difficult or cumbersome to take the XT3 anywhere I took the XT20. But, as with all things, others may have a different impression.
    X100F if you are absolutely certain 23mm is all you need and you like the retro rangefinder look XE3 if you want the smallest footprint that lets you change lenses. (XE3 is a sweet camera) XT3 (or XT20) if you want traditional SLR look and additional features at a cost

    I have the 35 and 23 f1.4, both of which are terrific lenses. However, my favorite in rendering, contrast, color, sharpness is still the 16 f1.4. I can see how the variances in the lenses may make one person prefer one over the other. It's all good. But I am really enamored by what the 16mm produces.

    Yep. Very close minimum focus distance, and tack sharp at areas of focus. Very unique properties. It's also an EXTREMELY sharp and contrasty lens when you're not at that close distance. Really a huge hidden gem of the lineup.

    I have the 23 1.4 as well. It is a great lens. It doesn't go quite as wide as I often want, and took the leap and added the 16mm. As much as I really like the 23, the 16 is even more impressive to me. It just looks sharper and more contrasty and, of  course, can do wider where wider is important. One of the best surprises with the 16 is the remarkable close focus ability it brings to the table. You can really manage the depth of field options with the great close focus it offers. And the close up shots with the 16 are tack sharp. I reach for my 16 more than my 23, even though I really like the 23 very much, too.
