The X-T3 may appear as a ringer for the X-T2, and anyone used to the series will feel very familiar with the X-T3 brings. That said, a multitude of changes make this a far more powerful camera, and it’s great to see that attention has been placed on core areas and smaller details alike. 

The new sensor captures very good detail when used with a good lens, and keeps noise levels low, while the wide-spread of phase-detect AF points across its surface allows subjects travelling anywhere across the frame to be kept in focus. Video quality remains strong, while the upgraded processing system also ensures that the camera remains responsive at all times.

Aside from the issue we encountered with EVF, it’s only really small design and operational quirks that frustrate. It would be good to see the next X-T model have a redesigned grip that would support the camera better when using longer lenses, for example, and a lockable exposure compensation dial.

Overall, while it may currently be one of the priciest APS-C cameras you can buy, Fujifilm has done well to deliver a very well rounded feature set inside a robust body that’s a pleasure to use.
