Fuji May be working on the ‘Ultimate X-Series Camera’ X-T3 Anyone?
I find this rumor quite humorous to be honest with you, because any firm that is not working on the ultimate iteration of their flagship generational product within a competitive market will not last very long! Never the less a quote by a a Fuji manager has lit the fuse on the latest round of X-Series rumors.
“when we announce our new telephoto prime [in 2018] we also need a higher performance body”.
I think you will agree that this is non-specific at best, but accompanying rumors do indeed suggest that Fuji are working on an APS-C X-Series camera which will be better than their current X-Pro2 and X-T2 line up. The model name X-T3 has been mentioned at least once and as suggested in the above quote, (dating for the telephoto prime is from the X-Mount roadmap) 2018 is indeed a year in which Fuji may choose to release such a camera.
We will all be eating our hats if come 2018 Fuji’s flagship camera release is worse than the current crop, but that is unlikely.
