Cameralabs published it’s full Sony A6600 review, Sony new flagship APS-C camera with IBIS.

He used both new lenses on the Sony A6600, the Sony E 16-55mm F2.8 G and the Sony E 70-350mm F4.5-6.3 G OSS.

Inevitabely, he often compared the Sony A6600 to the Fujifilm X-T3.

Now, I’ll skip the parts, where Cameralabs talks only about the Sony A6600, and highlight down below only those passages, where he mentions and compares it to the Fujifilm X-T3.

Fujifilm X-A7 Beats Fujifilm X-T3 Face/Eye Autofocus, but Firmware Update for X-T3 / X-T30 is Coming

Earlier today Fujifilm announced the Fujifilm X-A7, actually a very nice and capable camera. You can see the full X-A7 launch coverage here.

Among the others, the Fujifilm X-A7 comes with an improved face and eye detection autofocus, that, according to information Maarten Heilbron has received from Fujifilm, is better than the one on the Fujifilm X-T3 and Fujifilm X-T30.

This is confirmed also by DPR, who said (also shared in our live blog):

Fujifilm has hinted that new AF algorithms will allow the X-A7 to perform as well or better than the X-T30/X-T3.

The good news:

As Maarten Heilbron disclosed in his Fujifilm X-A7 video shared in our live blogging, Fujifilm told him they will release a firmware update to bring the Fujifilm X-T3 and X-T30 eye/face AF on par with the Fujifilm X-A7.

Now, today Fujifilm also released a firmware update for the Fujifilm X-T3 (ver.3.01 here), but this just fixes a bug, and is NOT the firmware update Maarten is talking about.

FujiRumors already rumored, that Kaizen firmware updates are in the work and ready to be disclosed soon. They might bring AF improvements, as Maarten says, but also other new features, like the “live light trail“, also already available on the X-A7, and of course you can see this feature in action at our X-A7 live blog.

I know that’s a lot of information for our fellow American readers, who just woke up and suddenly have to digest all this info, so make sure to check back our previous articles.

Fujinon XF16-80mm f/4 to be Sold as Fujifilm X-T3 Kit Lens towards End of 2019

When the Fujinon XF16-80mm f/4 was launched back in July, I wondered why Fujifilm didn’t give us the option to buy it bundled with any Fuji X series camera.

Some FR-readers said it’s because the lens is not yet available, but IMHO, this does not make sense, since Fujifilm could simply take pre-orders on a camera/lens bundle, just as they take pre-orders on the lens only.

So I hit up a couple of sources, and I got the following answer.

The Fujinon XF16-80mm f/4 will be initially sold only separately (it will ship September), but towards the end of the year, Fujifilm will offer it as a bundle with the Fujifilm X-T3.

So, if you plan to purchase both, the Fujifilm X-T3 and the XF16-80mm f/4, then I strongly recommend you not to purchase both items separately in September, but wait a few weeks until the bundle X-T3/16-80 bundle is out, since you might save a few bucks.

The sources specifically mentioned the bundle with Fujifilm X-T3 and did not mention other cameras. Which does not mean other bundles can’t be included.

Summer is almost over, and the time for rumors is coming!

So do you want to have fun?

  • Specifically designed for Fujifilm X-T3 and X-T2 Mirrorless camera, replaces Fujifilm MHG-XT3 and MHG-XT2 hand grip (Please note it does not fit the old Fujifilm X-T1 camera!)
  • A must have accessory for anyone with medium, large and up size hands or those who worry about dropping these compact expensive cameras with sleek body
