  1. Dear Fuji, I love my X-E2! Especially since FW 4.0 it has become a spectacular camera (save the waxy skin) and I'm so thankful for that FW update. I couldn't be happier when compared with the DSLR I was shooting before. Now give us that 23 f2 and then a 56 f2 and I'll be jumping for joy. But as much as I love the X-E2 I really hope you'll one day give us an X-E3. And I'm pretty sure I (and many others) wouldn't be able to resist upgrading from our X-E2. Here's what I think it should look like: Now let's get the basic specs out of the way and then I'll write some details about each one: - WR - No integrated space-wasting midget-flash - 24 MP X-Trans III sensor - Tilting touch screen - Large EVF from the X-T1 but with higher resolution and that nice refresh rate from the X-Pro2 - Front and rear dial as well as a combined SS / ISO dial - Focus-recompose and touch screen to select focus points (omitting the need for joystick or 4-way controller) WR I'd really like that but I can live without it. My lenses aren't WR anyway. No Integrated Flash Leave that thing out. It's so useless. Literally the only thing I do with it is popping it up and pressing it back in when I'm bored. I'm serious. Integrated flashes are weak, very limited, add potential weaknesses, cast ugly shadows and make WR more difficult. For triggering remote flashes (the only real use this thing has) rather find a way to brightly flash the focus assist lamp if that is possible. The money you save with this can go into adding a tilt and touch screen (see below). 24 MP X-Trans III Sensor Pretty obvious, right? It would be even better if you added PDAF points on the whole sensor but I guess that won't happen. Screen Tilt screens are so useful. I want one. I know some self-proclaimed purists don't want one but that's nonsense. They can simply not use it. And no, it doesn't break easily. Especially not if you don't use it. To accommodate the larger EVF (see below) you will need to make it more compact. I think you could keep it at 3" but all those huge borders around the actual screen area (like on the X-T1 / X-T10) need to go. Not a problem, others manage that as well. Touch screens are so useful. I want one. I know some self-proclaimed purists don't want one but that's nonsense. They can simply turn it off. And no, it doesn't cost much and it also doesn't drain the battery when it's turned off. It's embarrassing that so many cameras still lack one when we're in the age of the smartphone. The potential is huge but (like with the tilt screen) many fail to see that until they use a well implemented one. The main functions will be focus point selection (when shooting on a tripod) and menu navigation. EVF Yes, I want that huge X-T1 EVF. It's lovely and I want you to somehow squeeze it into the X-E3. To do that we'll need to move the screen and give up that 4-way controller which isn't needed (if you implement my suggestions for focus point selection). Add a higher resolution panel and give us that 85 fps refresh rate and we'll be extremely pleased. Please give us a diopter correction that doesn't constantly move by accident. And mark the freaking neutral position! This is UI-101! Dials Give us a combined SS & ISO dial. Not quite like in the X-Pro2 but similar. Lift-and-turn is too difficult to perform since it needs a significant change in the right hand position. Instead make it so that the button on top toggles between ISO and SS. Almost always I'll keep either SS or ISO fixed and adjust exposure with the other. So toggling the two would be perfect. The outer design (SS outside, ISO in the little window) is great. It would be even better if a deep press of the top button locked both settings so they can't accidentally be changed. I'd love front and rear control dials. Make them like the rear dial on the X-E2. Not that mushy thing you put in the X-T10. And then give us the option to change ISO and SS with them by adding a "D" (for dial) setting on the SS/ISO dial. Simple concept: - You like those labeled dials and only need full stops for ISO and SS: use the top dial. - You prefer DSLR-style dials or need 1/2 or 1/3 stops: use the front and rear dial. That way you can make all of us happy: everyone gets to use the dial they want and that ridiculous two-dials-are-needed-for-one-setting-thing has an end. When I use the front and rear dials for ISO and SS I want a press of the dial to switch between manual and auto mode. When the auto mode is selected, turning the SS dial changes the minimum shutter speed and turning the ISO dial changes the maximum ISO. Simple as that. Not a dial, but an important button: I want an AF button that works like the AF-ON buttons we are used to from DSLRs: press once for AF-S, hold for AF-C, half-pressing the shutter doesn't activate AF. Focus-point Selection We have two ways to select the focus point. Both are faster than joysticks or 4-way controllers and therefore (and since we have no space for it) we don't need either of those. Handheld shooting: focus on your subject, half-press the shutter button (extra step when using AF-button to focus) and recompose. The camera automatically selects the new AF point closest to the subject that was initially focussed on. Tripod shooting: use the touch screen to simply tap the desired focus point. In handheld shooting using the LCD you can use either method. ----- So, Fuji, these are my suggestions. I'm sure there might be some problems with this concept I haven't thought about but the general idea seems like a lovely camera to me. Here are a few additional (random) points: - Yes, it would be a step up and probably cause this camera to be priced the same or closer to the X-T2. I wouldn't care. - If the camera needs to become a few mm taller or wider to fit the large EVF that would be okay. - The exact button placement would of course need to be tested on actual prototypes, this is just guesswork. - Centered tripod mount please! - Dual card slot would be awesome. And please let us insert the cards from the side. - Adding Bluetooth for a stable remote connection with low power consumption would be great. - I'd like to have the ability to use the EC dial as a WB compensation dial when shooting in manual mode with AWB. - I forgot a Drive button in my mockup. ----- What do you think of this camera? Would you buy it? Would you rather buy this or the X-T2 with the same specs? What would you do differently? Feel free to drop a comment. If someone with more PS knowledge than me (not difficult) wants to do a proper rendering feel free to do that. Just want to tell Fuji that they should release an X-E3? Here's your chance!
  2. I just made the jump Friday from a Canon 7D Mark ii to a Fuji X-E2s. There is a learning curve, but I am excited to start learning the new camera. I always start by reading the manual, and this has taken me a couple of days while playing with the camera at the same time. The Canon was a fantastic sports camera, but my interests have changes to portrait and landscape, and I think this camera suits me better. I love how the screen changes brightness to reflect changes in ISO, shutter speed, etc... very cool way to see what you are getting.
  3. Hi all, I have had an X-E1 since shortly after they came out and am now looking to upgrade. I love the X-E1 but would like the advantage of the improved AF of the X-E2. Here is my dilemma. I can get a used X-E2 from a reputable dealer for about $550 (Canadian). At the same time, the X-E2s is on sale here in Canada for $750. So, given that the X-E2 with firmware appears to be nearly as good as the X-E2s, what would I be missing out on for that extra $200? If it helps any, I shoot a fairly wide variety of subject matter (street, flowers, abstract, etc.) but am really looking forward to the improved AF for more "action" shots (i.e. I have two active kids). I've read that even with the improved AF there is still an issue with action shots, but i figure it's gotta be better than the X-E1. Thanks in advance for any input.
  4. Hello all, my apologies if this topic has been asked before. I have the X-E2s model and normally use my 18-55 zoom lens. I also have the 18 f/2 and 35 f/1.4 prime lenses. Whenever I use these lenses it seems that the auto focus goes haywire. The lens is constantly chattering back and forth as if it is trying to focus. It does not matter if the camera is in the "auto" mode or manual. Or if the focus setting is single or continuous. The only time it stops doing this is when I switch the camera to the manual focus mode. The camera operates normally with the zoom lens but this drives me crazy when trying to use the prime lenses! I have checked the firmware on the camera and lenses and everything is using the most current version. Any help would be appreciated. I rarely use either of the lenses now because of this problem. Thanks, Jim White
  5. Dear fellow X-E lovers, with our hopes high that Fuji is actually working on an X-E3 now, I've been thinking a lot about what I would want the X-E3 to be like and for which features I am actually willing (and able) to pay. Since I've read all sorts of things about what people want ranging from "as cheap as possible" to "make it an X-T2 in rangefinder format" I decided to make a poll to collect all those opinions in a meaningful way. I am hoping that many people here (and from FR) participate so that I can generate some interesting statistics from the data. Patrick has done some polls but without a bit of background information I believe the value of those polls is quite low (sorry, Patrick ;-) So, here's the link if you want to participate (it shouldn't take long): https://goo.gl/forms/LixLzXFAzOH6SwYx1 » Poll is now closed! I am planning to leave it open for about a week and then do an analysis which I will of course publish here in the forum or maybe as a guest post on FR. If you have any comments feel free to drop them here. Thank you!
