IBIS - In body Image stabilization. Also if you need dual slots for memory and a "bigger" form factor to hold

The Bundle with the Lens is a Great Deal!!!
Quite right! The 8-16mm f2.8 is $2599 by itself, and the bundle is $2989, so you get the camera for $400! (Though, to be fair, the lens is currently full priced, and it has been 20-25% cheaper in the past). The bundle with the 16-55mm f2.8 is also quite interesting: bundle is $2209 and lens is $1549 by itself.

That said, I am not interested in either lens, and I just bought a used X-H1 during the Henrys used sale.

Damn you RFD... this is like the super expensive version of watching a recommended Youtube vid on something you weren't even looking for. Picked up at my local London Drugs and appears to be available at other dealers.

Another for the "Damn you RFD" crowd. Local (Edmonton) Vistek and McBain are out of stock; found one at a London Drugs and had them price match Vistek.

It's pretty much Fuji liquidating the rest of the X-H1 stock (which is only 1 year old at this point!) because the X-T3 and X-T30, with their new BSI (backside illuminated) sensor, have improved autofocus and video capacities.

That said, the X-T3 is still around $1800 Cad, so the price for the X-H1 with a lens is pretty good. It is also the only Fujifilm body with IBIS (in body image stabilization)... for now. Fujirumors has indicated that there are 3 new Fuji cameras that have been registered recently and, while it is too early for a new X-H2, we could a new camera with IBIS and the new BSI sensor.

Also, Canon will release 32 megapixel APS-C cameras in the next few days (M6-2 and 90D, for both their mirrorless and DSLR lines), so there is increased competition.

This has in-body image stabilisation (IBIS), a larger grip, a top LCD, and a minorly larger viewfinder (you won't notice the difference between the two in terms of viewfinder size).

X-T3 ties or wins at everything else (and some of them in relatively major ways, like the electronic shutter rate, which is substantially improved, and the PDAF coverage which went from 37% to 98%)

Sorry if it is a little off-topic...I bought into XT-2 deal on RFD (amazon-ca-preee-hawt-fuji-x-t2-1050-229 ... #p31074668) in June and used it a few times since then, any recommendations for good but inexpensive Fuji lenses? More for street or travel photography.
Eglobalcentral has good prices on the 27mm f2.8 (pretty good for street, if slower and noisier to focus than the newer Fujicrons. Also, no Weather Resistance) and the 18-55mm (pretty good kit lens).

That said, I have never ordered anything from them, so it's at your risk.

Or you can try your luck on the used market for the Fujicron line (16mm f2.8, 23/35/50 f2).

Ya, kit lens is the only one I've had so far and like it a lot! I like how the aperture could go to 2.8 on this kit lense, very useful indoors.
