Looking to move up from my recently purchased X-T20 (body for sale at a reasonable price).

Can't decide between the XPRO2 and X-T2 - my head says X-T2 but my heart says XPRO.

Like the viewfinder and grip better on the T2, but hate the EVF blackout. XPRO design makes me want to grab it and go shoot, grip is slightly lacking but a thumb grip will fix that. I have bad eyes and the EVF/OVF is slightly hard to see (same issue as X-T20).

Anyone been through this and can offer input?
If you don't like the EVF blackout and had trouble to see it in the X-T20's EVF, why not choose the X-T3? No more blackout and it has the biggest EVF of all the models. It is even cheaper than the X-Pro2.

Question: Do you guys use the custom jpg settings (ie sharpness, highlights, shadows, etc) in-camera or do you just edit those in post if needed?

I've never actually delved into changing those and I feel like I'm missing out with all the custom profiles available. Thoughts?

Found this online too and it makes me want to mess with it more...

The blackout really isn’t that bad and the egg is much better than the other cameras. If you want no blackouts, there’s always the X-T3. Unless you prefer the rangefinder style, I’d say X-T2.
Some people just don't get that online forum posts shouldn't always be taken seriously.

To be honest, I never touched those settings since I got my 1st Fuji camera, except for one. I always put the noise reduction to -2. When it's set at 0, at base iso or up to 1600 it is fine, but anything above that, the noise reduction is so strong, faces look like plastic.
I usually edit the jpeg or raw in post.

Not showing stock but you might be able to backorder the XT-2 on Amazon.ca for $1,173.99 which I think is a great price. (I pad 2200ish for the kit less than a year ago)

Thanks for the input! Leaning toward the XT2 due to recent prices. Shopping the used market so XT3 is a little out of my price range.

Is it possible to charge and transfer data at the same time on the X-T3?

Is it possible to use Bluetooth to remotely trigger the shutter on the X-T3?
Anyone here own a X-T3?

Very tempted. Been using my xe1 happily (mostly) for the past few years but wouldn't mind an upgrade.

Wondering if now is a good time to jump or if it'll go lower... Or buy used but this new pricing is very competitive.

It will depends on your luck. Last time X-T2 came out, the X-T1 was selling for around that price and kept dropping a little by little. In the end, with reasonable stock, it was selling for $700-800 and for a very limited stock and stores, it sold as little as $500-600.

Story short, it might get cheaper by a little and if it get really cheap, your chance of getting one will be thin.

I set the NR to -4 on the X-T2

I set the NR to 0 on the X-T3 and yeah the issue with Waxy Skin still exists so back it goes to -4

Any recommendations for mirrorless cameras that someone who is just getting started should consider purchasing? Pictures will mainly be taken of family, vacations, etc.

What's your budget, and are you looking new or used?

My first Fuji X-series Interchangeable Lens Camera was the now-discontinued X-A1 and it was awesome. But you can grab a used X-T1, X-T10, X-E2 body for probably around $350-$500, add a lens and you've got a great system to start with.

Firmware update 1.02 for X-T3 is out
The firmware update Ver.1.02 from Ver.1.01 incorporates the following issues:

1. The phenomenon is fixed that in rare cases, the buttons cannot be used while using histogram display or sports finder.
2. The phenomenon is fixed that in rare cases, RAW image cannot be recorded normally under a certain conditions (Sports finder mode, continuous shooting with electronic shutter and so on)
3. Fix of slight defects.
Some people just don't get that online forum posts shouldn't always be taken seriously.
