I am elated to hear the X-E4 might be back on the roadmap. I am very excited the form factor lives.

Fujifilm, please remember, the X-E is MINIMALIST. We know you can put nearly un-imaginable features in a camera, but you already did that to about a dozen other models. I think X-E users love those cameras because of what isn't on them.

Thumbs up to Itchy Shutter Finger.  I agree with all he said. 👍

Put IBS and weather sealing on it and call it good.  

As "Itchy" said, "...XE users love those cameras because of what isn't on them."

Like both of your suggestions.  The X-E2IV is the camera that provides me with the most fun, since "film" ~ however, I'll need an RX100V tilt screen on the X-E4, or I'll keep using the Sony's for more serious photography.

I'm ok with not introducing IBIS to the camera. Why? It increases the weight, it increases the price, it will possibly increase the size, OIS is built into to some of the zoom lens already, the shorter primes really don't need this IMO, instead, adjust the aperture and speed and ISO,,,,easy!

Anybody heard any further word on an X-E4?

I'm disappointed the X-S10 wasn't an X-E4.  (Not really liking the X-S10 - not retro enough for me and obviously not a rangefinder style.  Looks like any other of its competitors.  I guess that's for another discussion thread).

No sooner did I ask if anyone had heard anything about the X-E4, Fuji Rumors says it will be coming out during the first quarter of next year! (did he read my forum question and ask someone "in the know"?).  I'm going to be on pins and needles until then with my brain conjuring up all sorts of wish list items.  But still, I don't want to see it overloaded with gadgets, bells and whistles.

It is my hope that the X-E4 will keep more of the retro, add the 26MP sensor,  little more grip, stay compact, and be price competitive.  Also, Fuji should move to full frame with the X100 line, call the first one the X1000?  Let the E4 fill the compact APS sensor demand.

Ah yes, thank you jaxphotocat... Agreed, I forgot to mention the X-E4 needs the 26 MP sensor.  I put a case on my old X-E1and a thumb rest to create a better grip.  I'm a big guy with big hands.  Sure like the compactness of the X-E series over the XPro-3.

Interesting thought about full-frame X100.

I hope I'm wrong, but I have low expectations of the X-E4, as I don't see FujiFilm doing much for still shooters. In all fairness, not much more is required over the X-E3. I expect any improvements will be nice, but not required. I really can't think of a photo situation I can't shoot because of an X-E3 shortcoming.

I expect any innovation will be for video/selfie customers, and if this turns out to be the case, I'l just live on with my existing pair of X-E3 cameras.

I can't disagree with you on that, "itchy", and wouldn't be surprised if you were right.  I passed on the X- E3 in hopes of a 4, so trying to stay positive on what they may come up with.

    • Is there any way to control shutter speed in fujix t200 other than in shutter priority mode?
    • I have just purchased a mint condition Fujifilm XS-1, I had one back in 2013 and regretted selling it. I have tried so many different cameras but kept getting frustrated because I hate carrying loads of gear around and trying to decide what lens to put on was driving me mad. I came to the conclusion that I want a super zoom camera with a good quality lens and excellent photo quality. The Sony RX10iii would probably be my ideal camera but at around £1200 or more, it is way too expensive for me. S
    • Welcome to our forum and thank you for your self introduction
    • Must be the lens. I have had that lens for over a year and it is one of my most used lens. Pictures are always sharp.
    • Just bought the 23mm f2 lens with enthusiasm for some great shots only to be let down by every image having a hazy look to them. Has anyone else experienced this? I may have a faulty lens but I was surprised at this since every other lens from Fuji I've tried and own is tack sharp. Returning this one for sure but curious if anyone else has seen this.
