Mine.Heavily considering selling my Pro2 and grabbing a X-T3 off the used market for the much much better auto focus. I would still have the X-E3 for my rangefinder love and an every day shooter.
Yeah, the latest X-T3 firmware showed up just weeks after I sold mine. I also sold my X-H1. I still have all of my lenses and I'm trying to decide if I'll pick up an X-T4. It's possible I may just keep my X-Pro3 and my "Fujicron" f/2.0 primes and sell off all of my other Fuji gear. I'll know by Christmas. I have a Sony A7 III that can do anything an X-T4 can.

I considered the Pro3. But my thinking is in doing this as cheap as possible. Used X-T3’s are already down at the $800 level.

I want a Crown No.1 Tripod for my Anniversary Speed Graphic, but I don't want to pay Ebay prices AND Ebay GSP shipping/custom charges.

Also could used another Camera Equipment Company Junior Professional Tripod for one of my Eyemos.....same problem....

I shouldn't even read this thread. My X-E2 and X-T2 handle great, work well, and give me great images. You guys are a bad influence. ;)
I totally understand that X-T3 is largely a minor upgrade over X-T2. If anything, the autofocus is the big improvement. I got the distinct impression that the new iteration was quickly introduced and was largely motivated by competition: AFAIK they moved production from Japan to Thailand to offer a killer deal against Sony. In essence, your X-T2 is a premium version of the X-T3. 😉👍

Exactly this. With the firmware 4.0 update, the X-T3 made a huge leap in the performance/price ratio. Autofocus is the sole reason I’m even considering the switch. If the AF performance isn’t needed, the X-T2 is the better option for the price. There won’t be any difference in image quality.

Around here, the X-T3 goes for under $1000 new ... that's got considerable tug ... I'm not going so far as to say I want one, but it's hard not to think about it at all ...

Timing is everything. I bought the 16-80 ($800) earlier this year and have ordered the X-S10 ($1000). The combo is now selling for $1499. :frown:

I'll have to check around the site and see what your observations are about the X-S10. A possible less-expensive alternative to the X-T4... allowing me to keeping using some of the lenses I like?

A local dealer has Panasonic G9 on BF deals: 1099 € body only, or 1199 € with the grip.

If I was a grip using shooter, the deal would sound kind of nice. But the gripless deal is a tad on the high side still.

On the used markets, 1100 € for a G9 + extra batteries + PL 12-60 is not unheard-of.

I guess it all depends on how much having a brand-new camera with manufacturer's warranty is worth to you. The answer is different for everyone. Especially if you already have a PL 12-60, Panny 12-35 or the like.
