Fujifilm X-T3 vs Sony a7III, Buying Fujifilm on a Budget, Lenstip XF16mm f/2.8 review and Much More (Fuji X Cameras/Lens Roundup)


I do receive lots of email requests from fellow Fuji X shooters asking to be featured. And it is my pleasure to cut out regulary a space for you guys here on FujiRumors.

However, the requests are many, and the content on FujiRumors is overall very rich, so sometimes it takes a bit longer to be featured.

But I don’t forget any single one of you, and you’ll all be featured at some point. I just ask for a little bit of patience :).

Cover Stories

We know Fujifilm is not for professional photographers, so I wonder why Enrique Mancera has been awarded at Tokyo Awards shooting Fujifilm! :) He also earned honorable mentions in Paris (Px3) and New York (IPA).

Lenstip published their Fujinon XF 16mm f/2.8 review. Read the full review at here. Down below their Pros and Cons


  • shapely, solid, weather-sealed casing,
  • excellent image quality in the frame centre,
  • slight longitudinal chromatic aberration,
  • low lateral chromatic aberration,
  • lack of any spherical aberration problems,
  • sensible performance against bright light,
  • silent, accurate and fast autofocus.


  • a bit too high coma at the maximum relative aperture,
  • huge distortion for RAW files,
  • big brightness loss on RAW files.

Chris Turner compares the Fujifilm X-T3 with the Sony a7III. Down below you can read his findings and see his video:

  • Fuji cameras are more fun to use
  • loves the Fujifilm dials
  • build quality of X-T3 is fantastic, like on Sony
  • X-T3 battery life is not so impressive
  • Fujifilm prime lenses are impressive. Sony 35mm has much more chromatic aberration than Fuji
  • image quality has upper hand, but Fuji is impressive crop sensor camera
  • he likes very shallow DOF, and that is the main thing that sets them apart [give us that Fujinon XF 33mm f/1.0]
  • Fuji has impressive autofocus, but not on par with Sony, which is still superior, especially eye autofocus. But Fujifilm has very good autofocus
  • Fujifilm system is smaller and lighter (body/lenses etc)
  • it doesn’t matter what you buy, both are fantastic, you have to use them both and see what suits you best
