Dmitry, thank you for the response and for having expressed your opinion. I agree with you, if the phrase “do not buy” we replace “will not be so much common as APS-C DSLRs from Canon and Nikon.”

Regarding the fact that professionals will not buy the Fujifilm X-T2, I will give here a story that I placed to a comparative review of full-frame mirrorless Sony. Last fall in Yekaterinburg came the head of the Moscow representation of the publishing house from the United States. With him, he had a full-frame Sony Alpha ILCE-7RM2 with a zoom Sony FE 24-240mm f / 3.5-6.3 OSS Lens and a prime Sony Carl Zeiss Planar T * 85mm f / 1.4 ZA. On it, he literally passed a couple of months before the meeting, and before shooting on Fujifilm X-T1. On my request to give feedback on Sony A7, he said that the camera has an amazingly wide DD and high ISO, but the focus is not so fast. At the same time his words were: “You know, Sergey, the mirrorless literally saves my life. I had to shoot reports in Chechnya, Afghanistan and Africa. I come to the country, I put on the clothes of the local people and go out into the street, lost in the crowd (he has an Arab appearance). A US citizen, and especially a journalist – a bag of money for terrorists, we are the first candidates to be kidnapped for ransom. Fuji is not so much attracting the attention of both bad guys and those I photograph, since it does not look like a professional camera “… What is the more professional application, Dmitri?

It is clear that those professionals who shoot football for the “Soviet Sport”, will not buy the X-T2. Focusing on the response of Paul, I will assume that it is not because of slow autofocus, but because of the lack of 800 mm telephoto lens … For street-photo reporting, I’m sure the speed and accuracy of Fujifilm X-T2 auto focus will be more than enough – look at the second part of the test the Fujifilm X30 advanced compact camera (link at the end of this review). I there filmed a report from the “Race of Heroes” and noted that AF censures I have not caused.

As for the cost, we are judging you from your bell tower. I will give an example. I save a year to go on vacation once. Less than a month ago, I returned from an independent tour of India, where I selipped in hotels for 10-15 dollars a day, and was very sad if I had to pay 20 USD. When we arrived at midnight by train to Jaipur, we agreed with a moto rickshaw that for 1 dollar he would take us to the hotel, he drove off 2 km from the railway station and stated that he was mistaken that he thought he was going to get closer. Therefore, he says, travel costs $3. We quarreled and he dropped me and my wife and suitcases off somewhere under the overpass, in the slums, among the homeless people sleeping right on the ground … At the same time, I personally know the man who flew to Cuba and at the beach resort of Varadero lived in a hotel, where he paid $250 per room per day…

I look out the window and see on the streets a fairly noticeable number of cars worth 70-150 thousand dollars. And the neighborhoods of Yekaterinburg are built up by cottage villages, where the houses cost 300’000 – 2’000’000 dollars. For their owners, the price difference between the Nikon D7100 and the Fujifilm X-T2 is the amount they spend to sit in a restaurant with girls of easy virtue for one night. And among them, too, there are amateur photographers, and not everyone wants to carry large photo frames with full-frame DSLRs and optics.

My friend used to shoot on the full-frame Nikon D800 and now he starts to use the Fujifilm X-T2. What is the result?
Alexander, thank you and for your compliments! As for your question, I will support Alessandro: indeed, there is the same X-Trans CMOS III sensor in the Fujifilm X-T20, the Fujifilm X-T2, the Fujifilm X-Pro2 and the Fujifilm X100f models, as well as in the recently announced the Fujifilm X-E3. Accordingly, the image quality of all 5 models will be the same.

The only difference is that the Fuji X100F has a non-removable lens with a focal length of 23 mm, and on the other cameras, lenses can be changed, thereby reaching a change the perspective in the picture. At the focal length of the FL=23 mm, the picture will be absolutely identical.

If we compare the Fuji X100F and the Fuji X-E3, in my opinion, there is no significant difference between those two cameras, and I would choose the X-E3 model, because if you buy the Fujifilm XF 23mm f/2 R WR lens, then it will be almost compact as the X100f, but the owner of the X-E3 does not need to be able to change the lens at his will. Over time, the photographer may want to take wide-angle lens 10 mm or a telephoto lens, for example. Fuji have a pancake Fujifilm XF 27mm f/2.8 with thickness of 23 mm as a replacement, Fujifilm XF 23mm f/2 R WR.

To date, the Fuji X-E3 body on the Russian market is worth 56’000 rubles (Yandex-Market) plus a prime Fuji 27mm f/2.8 for 29’000 rubles. Summ price of the set is 85’000 rubles. For the Fuji X100f they ask 90’000 rubles.

The differences between the models Fujifilm X100F and Fujifilm X-E3 are as follows:

1) The location of the disks and buttons is similar. However the Fuji X100f has the doubled ISO and shutter speed disc like the Fujifilm X-Pro2, and conversely the Fuji X-E3 – the shutter speed is adjusted by a separate disc..

2) The X100f model has a hybrid viewfinder (OVF + EVF) similar to the Fujifilm X-Pro2, and the X-E3 has only EVF. I do not know how much the hybrid version is better than electronic one. Recently I photographed a photo report with the compact Fujifilm X30, I did not meet problems with the viewfinder.

3) The mirrorless Fujifilm X-E3 has a touch screen – you can select the focus point, focusing and select 4 different functions with one touch. What are these functions is set in the menu. In the compact Fujifilm X100f the screen is normal.

4) The difference between these two cameras is in the video capture format. The Fuji X-E3 can shoot videos in 4K format (24, 25 and 30 fps with a bitrate of 100 Mbps, and this format is without APS-C like on the Fujifilm X-T20. Therefore, the image is not as clear as on the Fujifilm X- T2 (see the comparative overview above.) The Fuji X100f compact camera can only provide Full HD video at up to 60 fps .

5) On the work of autofocus – I read in the reviews that the number of points and AF modes of both models are the same: 91 or 325 points, but the X-E3 has two additional settings. Unlike the X100f, the autofocus system can track objects that move 2 times faster and have 2 times smaller dimensions. Another difference – in the focus settings of the Fujifilm X-E3, you can set the sensitivity and speed, depending on the behavior of the subject. It is also said that the lens built into the X100f does not focus so quickly… The reason is that the lens model has not changed since the introduction of the Fuji X100 in 2011. Moreover, the owner of the X-E3 can use more modern optics with the best AF, fast and quiet internal mechanism. Even the prime Fujifilm XF 23mm f/2 R WR is considered better than the built-in X100f lens. Under the link above from the photo walk-in along with the Fujifilm X30, I gave a video showing the speed and accuracy of the focus operation – I’m satisfied. I do not think that the Fujifilm X100f has the worst autofocus then the X30…

6) The mirrorless camera Fujifilm X-E3 has a mechanical shutter, which can shoot with a shutter speed of 1/8000 seconds. In the compact Fujifilm X100f is installed another model with a shutter speed of 1/4000 seconds. In the electronic shutter mode, both cameras provide 1/32000 seconds.

7) Two models have WiFi, but in the X-E3 there is also Bluetooth, which constantly keeps in touch with the camera and phone, automatically transmits pictures, if the corresponding application is open.

Conclusion: the difference between the bodies is not so significant. The image quality is the same as that of the Fujifilm X-T2 images presented in this review. It’s all about usability, plans for the future. I think the concept of these cameras is different.

The Fujifilm X100f designated for wealthy amateur photographers, who are important in compactness, who are not going to acquire more lenses. Perhaps the Fuji X100f they have is the second camera, which is necessary for trips to business trips, etc.

The Fujifilm X-E3 is a model for those who need small size and dimensions, but who is thinking about expanding the optics park in the future, giving the photographer more creative possibilities.


My friend used to shoot on the full-frame Nikon D800 and now he starts to use the Fujifilm X-T2. What is the result?
I mean that if it is not a technological limitation, but Fuji really would like to save on taxes (as car manufacturers do by reducing engine power), then the manufacturer does not cost anything to release a separate version of Fujifilm X-T2, calling it Fujifilm X-T3 (or whatever) which will be free of this limitation, and that will cost more than the value of the tax itself.


My friend used to shoot on the full-frame Nikon D800 and now he starts to use the Fujifilm X-T2. What is the result?
That’s what Paul Chertalev said about heating the Fuji X-T2 when shooting video:

“The camera really heats up: if 10-15 minutes to shoot video in 4K format, it overheats. I was annoyed. I shot dances at a concert, and not more than 4 performances managed to shoot in 4K. Then it had to move to Full HD video”.
