Top 3 Loves and Hates of Shooting Fujifilm X-T1 in 2019 compared to Fujifilm X-E3

It’s summer, which means 2 full months of holidays from my teaching job!

I have already passed 2 weeks with that annoying SonyAlphaRumors guy in beautiful Croatia. :)

However, I have no other travels planed, given that I married in May and must a little bit recover financially now (*).

So, together with my wife we decided to spend most of our summer just hiking on the mountains around my home. And frankly, I do not desire nor need more than this right now.

Sometimes we sleep on a mountain hut and enjoy the sunrises at high altitude (and with a bit of luck also meeting fellow Fujifilm shooters up there).

We might, though, make one short honeymoon city trip, maybe to Paris?

Ok, I hear you, come to the point! Camera comparison, NOW!

Well, since I bought the Fujifilm X-E3, I have basically never touched my trusty Fujifilm X-T1 anymore (which still holds the sceptre for taking my all time favorite image).

My wife kindly invited me to sell it, but the answer I could give her was no other than this one :).

So, to justify the fact that I still own the X-T1, I took it out for a recent mountain hike, put it into my Camslinger bag, and shot again a whole day with it.

It was like rediscovering the Fujifilm X-T1, and here are 3 things I loved and hated about shooting with it again.

Drastic Price Drop for Fujifilm X-H1, X-T2, X-T20, X-E3 and X-T100 in Europe

Fujifilm has started to drop prices on several Fujifilm cameras also in Europe.

Depending on the country you live, the new retail price has already been set or will be set within the the next few days.

We are talking of new retail price, not a time limited price drop.

The products, that will get a new price tag are the Fujifilm X-H1, Fujifilm X-T2, Fujifilm X-T20, Fujifilm X-E3 and Fujifilm X-T100, body only and kit combos.

Note that AmazonDE marks the cameras mentioned above as discounted, but this is acutally the new retail price.

Check out the new retail price also at

I’d like to thank the anonymous source for this information.

FUJIFILM sets New Price on Fujifilm X-H1, X-E3, X-T20, X-T100, X-A5 and Fujifilm Savings Continue

Fujifilm Deals and New MSRP

It looks like Fujifilm set a new MSRP for he Fujifilm X-H1, Fujifilm X-Pro2, Fujifilm X-E3, Fujifilm X-T20, Fujifilm X-T100 and Fujifilm X-A5. The price is lower than in 2018, and stores do not mark it as a deal.

Hence, the Fujifilm X-H1 with grip is still $900 cheaper than just a few days ago, but given the brand new retail price of the X-H1, the savings add up to $467.

Strangly the official retail price of the Fujifilm X-T2 is still $1,599, but you can buy it for $1,099 with a $500 price drop.

DPReviewTV Best and Worst of 2018: Fujifilm X-T3 Beats Sony A7III and Nikon Z6, but Fujifilm X-T100 and XF10 Fail

Best Gear 2018

Chris and Jordan from DPReviewTV just published their best and worst gear 2018 epsiode.

The GOOD News:

The Fujifilm X-T3 wins the award for the best camera of 2018, beating the full frame Sony A7III and Nikon Z6.

The Fujifilm X-T3 has already been declared best camera of 2018 by many big youtubers and blogs. Check out our recent best of 2018 overview here.

The BAD News:

The Fujifilm X-T100 has been declared worst video camera of 2018, with a useless 4K. The Fujifilm XF10 is the thrid worst camera of 2018. Bad and unreliable focussing. Slow, laggy.

Dear Fujifilm, this is what happens if you put an old and slow processor in cameras that otherwise would have a very nice sensor.


Strangly, not a single Fujinon lens makes it into the list.

I believe the Fujinon XF200mmF2 would have deserved a top spot, and not to forget the Fujinon XF8-16mmF2.8 or the Fujinon GF250mmF4.

And maybe also the medium format Fujifilm GFX50R should have gotten at least an honorable mention.
