DPReview just published their Fujifilm X-Pro3 review.
The X-Pro3 gets the silver award, but I doubt those, who got an X-Pro3 care anything about it. It is all about getting a different shooting experience that DPR sums up with the sentence “living the moment“. And in this case, the reviewer says:
Personally, although I can recognize the X-Pro3’s appeal, I don’t find that I feel it enough to give it a Gold award.
No review will ever be able to tell you if the Fujifilm X-Pro3 is the camera for you. All you can do, is to get your hands on one, shoot with it for a while, and you will just feel it.
Pros and Cons
What we liked
- Excellent image quality
- Range of attractive film/color modes
- Optical viewfinder gives interesting experience
- Electronic viewfinder further boosts flexibility
- Flip-down screen excellent for waist-level shooting
- Attractive, detailed 4K video
- USB charging is useful
- Faux film stock sub monitor is undeniably cool
What we don’t
- Optical finder doesn’t work as well with wide or long lenses as predecessor
- Obscured rear screen limits styles
- AF point indication in OVF makes near-to-far parallax shift unpredictable
- Some lenses (particularly the F1.4s) aren’t especially fast to focus, undermining the the immediacy of street shooting
- Face/Eye detection mode a little prone to false-positives and requires input if your subject temporarily turns away
