    Maybe with some of the SOOC jpeg film sims, but not from raw, although with XP2 raw I sometimes turn contrast down a bit!

    The "hunting" noise is due to the lens continuously trying to focus .
    If  PRE-AF is set to ON (in AF/MF >PRE-AF ), the lens will keep focusing CONTINUOUSLY  in S and C modes (even when the shutter is not pressed)
    Turn it OFF , and see if that solves the issue

    Wrong,  The flippy screen destroys the ease of use enjoyed with  the articulating screen of the XT-3 - just for starts.  I'm afraid my next upgrade won't happen until Fuji starts making cameras again instead of camcorders.  Just my opinion, but I believe there are plenty others out there that agree with me.

    Back on March 23 2017, I made a post requesting IBIS, high spec video, and fully articulated touch screens. I was treated as if I was a trolling Leper. So I'm back to gloat and I'm here now because all of you naysayers were wrong. You should be ashamed of yourselves. Every single one of you that rode my ass and tried to assassinate my  character for simply asking for these features should be ashamed of yourselves. So how many of you that said you'd sell all your gear because of IBIS, flippy screens, and great video capabilities have actually followed through and done so?

    I use 27mm a lot and it's one of my favourite lens, at the same time I don't like 23mm FL at all, so X100 is just not for me. Do check it first.

    The real torture for me is if both cameras were set in front of me before I purchased the XPro-3 🤪  That said I’ll be keeping the XPro-3 and admire the X100V from afar.

    I have a X-PRO3 and would not part with it and the advantage of being able to use other lenses than the 23mm which is my most used field of view as it was on my Leica M9.
    I would most certainly never replace it with with the X100V for the only advantage of thr smaller size (the X- PRO3 osn't all that big)
    I just might submit to the temptation of getting a X100V nest to the X-PRO3, but fear it will all too often be left behind and taking 2 bodies on a trip is for me a no go

    Keep the X-Pro...the X100V is the "it girl" of compact mirrorless rangefinders, but even with all the upgrades, it does not give you the option to change lenses, you can't use filters (without a $70 adapter) and it is still a leaf shutter, so no bokeh with fast shutter speeds (unless you like smeared blur).  The X-Pro 3, while certainly is not pretty or pocketable, offers much more versatility now and in the future - it is the less attractive but more useful older sibling.

    I have an X-T1 as well, and already placed my pre-order for the X100V. I contemplated the X-Pro3, but its too large for the purpose that I would want it for. I think the X100 series is hard to replace if you want something small but mighty. If you want the X100V for the size, the X-Pro3 is noticeably larger even when using it with the 27mm (I had the change to check out a pre-production unit).
     
    Don't forget, the X-T4 is also about to come out, I think I'm going to sell a kidney, and get me one of those too lol

    Good luck figuring that out. 
    I've been bragging for six months how the X-E3 checks all my boxes, and I seek no other Fuji body style. Then the X100V showed up. This will be even harder for you since the X100V gets so close to the X-Pro3.
    At the end of the day, the difference, besides the obvious lens situation, is right in the name - X-PRO3. This camera has pro features, and is made tough enough for hard core pro use. Titanium is an order of magnitude tougher metal than aluminum. Then there is the dual card slots. I generally regard weather sealing a pro feature, and then the X100V came along and said "hold my beer - no, wait, SPILL my beer!"
    But there is a siren call of some sort coming from the X100V.

    Hello, 
    I bought an X-Pro3 and I’m very happy with it. Now I saw the X100V and to me it’s very attractive.
    What I have to do? Keep the X-pro3 with the 27mm or trade it for X100V?

    Drunken Monk reacted to Mr.Hertzberg in Fujinon 18-55mm f2.8-4 vs 16-55mm f2.8 sharpness   
    Hi! I have owned the Fuji 18-55 mm f 2.8-4 for a while, and now the upgrade itch got to me and I had to try out a Fuji 16-55 mm f2.8. After watching almost every review out there, I was really wondering if I would notice the difference in practical use. My first shots were disappointing in that regard, when just zooming in on my camera screen the pics looked very similar. Then I rigged up a tripod and did some more systematic comparisons - reviewing them on my computer. These screen shots from Capture One is very representative from what I found. I tried out various aperture settings and took many more pictures, but I believe these are basically telling the amount of difference in sharpness between the 18-55 and the 16-55. 
    Focus was of course placed at the same spot. On the globe, it was on the A of Australia, on the car it was on the wheel. I noticed a difference in the bokeh on the globe-picture even if both lenses are set to f4 in that shot  (the bokeh ball from the lamp across the street is bigger with the 16-55). 
    Anyway - hope this is useful for someone, and it would be interesting to hear other user experiences. 😃 My conclusion is that the 18-55 is very good, but if you want to crop your images or print them very big, the 16-55 definitely is sharper. 
    Pictures were taken with my X-h1
