Competition Compared: Sony a6400 vs Fujifilm X-T20 vs Fujifilm X-T3 vs Sony a6500 vs Fujifilm X-T30

Sony A6400

Sony announced the Sony A6400, which, given its price and features, we can consider the Fujifilm X-T30 competitor.

The Fujifilm X-T30 will be announced February 14.

Above you can find a specs sheet comparison between the Sony A6400, Fujifilm X-T20, Sony A6500, Fujifilm X-T3 as well as an initial list of Fujifilm X-T30 specs, assuming it has the same sensor/processor of X-T3.

Animal Face/Eye Detection

Fujifilm already has it! :)

In fact, this forgotten Fujifilm digital camera offered “pet detection” for cats and dogs already 8 years ago.

Of course Sony’s solution is much more sophisticated and potentially very useful for wildlife photographers, so let’s hope Fujifilm will catch up on that feature, improve and extend it, and bring it to us Fuji X series lovers via Kaizen love soon.

New Autofocus

The showpiece of the Sony A6400 is definitely the new autofocus system, but we have to wait real life reviews to see if it really lives up to the hype Sony created with its promo videos.

If so, then it’s definitely impressive.

The Fujifilm X-T30 will feature the new sensor and processor of the Fujifilm X-T3, hence we can expect an excellent performer in terms of autofocus and eye-AF. Can’t wait to see the first real life comparisons with Sony’s new AF system.

Dealbreaker Selfie Screen?

The Sony A6400 also targets vloggers. However, with an on camera microphone attached, you can no longer see yourself in the upwards tilting selfie screen. A possible dealbreaker for vloggers.

If the Fujifilm X-T30 has a selfie screen, then it could be the one of the Fujifilm X-T100, which I consider a brilliant solution for hybrid stills/video shooters, except for one downside, as we told you here.

You guys already told us which kind of tilt screen you prefer (for Fujifilm X-H2). Check out and vote the poll here.

Lack of APS-C Lenses

If Sony’s wants to create an attractive APS-C system, they need to add several high quality APS-C lenses, but sadly Sony didn’t announce any new APS-C lens.

To cover the gaps in their APS-C lens line-up, you must get the more expensive and bigger FE-mount full frame lenses, which kind of destroys the purpose of buying into APS-C.

The Fujifilm X-T30 has on its side a terrific lens line-up specifically designed for APS-C. You find from big, heavy and expensive glass to small, portable and afforable lenses. A mature system.

Sony Kaizen

The probably most exciting part of the recent announcements, was Sony’s promise to add the new autofocus system as well as new features (interval recording) via firmware update to the Sony A9, Sony A7III and Sony A7rIII.

Let’s hope Sony will permanently adopt Fujifilm’s Kaizen strategy, since customers will benefit so much from it (companies a little bit less, since they hold off people from upgrading more frequently to newer models).

BREAKING: Fujifilm X-T30 Announcement on February 14

Fujifilm X-T30

According to our trusted sources, the Fujifilm X-T30 will be announced on February 14.

FujiRumors will be live blogging the event non stop, so make sure to join FujiRumors on Facebook, Instagram, RSS-feed and Twitter.

And remember that:

Check out our Fujifilm camera and lens timeline 2019/2020 for more details.

And I know that given the terrific rebate on Fujifilm X-H1 ($900 cheaper than just at launch price), many speculate the Fujifilm X-H2 could be annouced, too. But so far I do not have any indication that leads me to correct my previous rumor, which said the Fujifilm X-H2 will not come in 2019.

More rumors are coming :), so make sure to get notified instantly by following FujiRumors on Facebook, Instagram, RSS-feed and Twitter and hitting that little bell icon on the bottom right of your browser.

Fujifilm 2019 Camera and Lens Release Timeline (and a bit of 2020)

Fujifilm 2019 Timeline

It’s time to put some order in the myriad of rumors, and give you guys a timeline of the Fujifilm products that will come in 2019, as well as give a quick glance at 2020.

This is just an approximate timeline, that I will update as soon as I get new information.

January/April 2019

  • Fujifilm X-T30*
  • Fujinon XF16mm f/2.8 R WR*
  • Fujinon GF 100-200mm f/5.6 R LM OIS WR*

* based on our rumors

May/August 2019

  • Fujinon GFX100*
  • Fujinon XF16-80mm  f/4 R LM OIS WR**
  • Fujinon GF 50mm f/3.5 LM WR***

* based on our rumors
** our sources say XF 16-80 will not come in early 2019
*** just an educated guess by FujiRumors, but it could make sense to announce it along with Fujifilm GFX100

September/December 2019

  • Fujifilm X-Pro3*
  • Fujifilm X100F Successor*

* based on reports at techardar. I place them in the second half of 2019, because I do not think their release is imminent (if techradar is right about 2019 release)

Top Possible Bonus Gear in 2019/2020

  • Fujinon GF 80mm f/1.4 R LM WR*
  • Fujifilm X80**
  • older XF lenses refresh***

*based on rumor
** wishful thinking based on XF10 disappointment :)
*** no rumors. but please, FUJI, PLEASE!!!

Coming 2020

  • Fujifilm X-H2*
  • Fujinon XF33mm f/1.0 R LM WR**
  • Fujinon GF 45-100mm f/4 R LM OIS WR**

* our sources say it will not be released in 2019, hence must be sometimes in 2020, since I don’t think Fuji will wait until 2021
** based on official Fujifilm roadmap

Probably Not Coming in 2019/2020

  • Fujifilm X-E4

Fujifilm X-H1 Suddenly Best Seller, Fujifilm X-E3 now $300 off and More Fujifilm Deals

Fujifilm X-H1

Price matters, and now that the Fujifilm X-H1 is $900 off, it suddenly sells like hot cakes. The Fujifilm X-H1 is currently the best selling camera at AmazonUS, and also the Fujifilm X-T3 is high in the ranking.

Good time to get into Fuji IBIS, especially since the Fujifilm X-H2 will not come in 2019.

Also, new cameras joined the deals. The Fujifilm X-E3 body is $200 off, but grab it with XF18-55 and save $300. New deals also on Fujifilm X-T20, Fujifilm X-T2, Fujifilm X-T100 and more. Check out the full list down below.

Fujifilm X-Pro3 (and Fujifilm X200?) Coming in 2019 According to Techradar

Fujifilm 2019 Techradar Predictions

According to techradar predictions, the Fujifilm X-Pro3 will come in 2019. And they seem pretty confident about that, since they write here:

We’ve pooled together what we know for sure with our predictions for the next twelve months.”

Less likely, but also a possibility according to techradar is the Fujifilm X100F successor (may it be called Fujifilm X200 or Fuji X100V or anything else).

If techradar is accurate, this means that Fujifilm changed their usual camera-refresh cycle, and that they will not skip one sensor/processor generation with the Fujifilm X-Pro3, as they did with the X-Pro2.

Here on FujiRumors we have already shared Fujifilm X-Pro3 concepts and wish lists.

Oh, and did you know that the Fujfiilm X-T30 is just around the corner? ;)

Fujifilm X-T30 To be Released First Quarter 2019

Fujifilm X-T30

A trusted source told me (thanks), that the Fujifilm X-T30 will be released in the first quarter of 2019 (January-March).

This pretty much fits with what we expected in our Fujifilm X camera replacement timeline, where we speculated, based on Fuji’s camera refresh-cycle, when the Fujifilm X-H2, Fujifilm X-T4, Fujifilm X-T30, Fujifilm X-Pro3, Fujifilm X-E4 and Fujifilm X200 (or X100V) could be released.

DPReviewTV Crop Sensor Comparison: Fujifilm X-T3 Beats Nikon D500, Olympus EM-1 MK II and Panasonic G9

Chris and Jordan just released roundup/buyers guide for non-full frame shooters.

They look at the Fujifilm X-T3, Nikon D500, Olympus EM-1 MK II and Panasonic G9 and try to figure out which camera is better for landscapes, street, sports/wildlife, portrait photography and video.

SPOILER ALERT: The Fujifilm X-T3 ends on top in all categories but one :).

Chris starts by saying that:

  • APS-C and M43 offer a lot of versatility and can handle all kinds of photography
  • Full frame cameras are more specialized tools in a lot of ways

LANSCAPES

  1. Fujifilm X-T3 wins, due to highly effective APS-C sensor and great dynamic range. Excellent lenses. By a hair the winner
  2. Olympus EM-1 MKII and Panasonic G9 are on par. Have multishot pixel shift
  3. Nikon D500 not made for landscape, lower resolution sensor and big body. Not so portable

STREET PHOTOGRAPHY

  1. Fujifilm X-T3. Sexiest looking body. Dial controls very instinctual. Crazy fast AF. Eye AF is great. APS-C image quality better than M43
  2. Panaosnic G9 very close to Olympus. Better viewfinder and faster single AF, better eye AF
  3. Olympus EM-1 MK II
  4. Nikon D500 is big and bulky. Slow live view AF

SPORT/WILDLIFE PHOTOGRAPHY

  1. Nikon D500 offers by far the most lens choices. Rugged and stable DSLR body. Best autofocus in the world
  2. Fujifilm X-T3 has some great lenses like the XF100-400 and new XF200mmF2. Insanely fast AF. Very capable sports and wildlife camera
  3. Panaosnic G9
  4. Olympu EM-1 MKII

PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY

  1. Fujifilm X-T3 is the clear winner. Great lenses. They care about APS-C lenses. Legendary color science with great skin tones. Great AF and vastly improved eye-AF
  2. Nikon D500
  3. Olympus EM-1 MK II
  4. Panaonic G9

VIDEO

  1. Fujifilm X-T3. Terrific video specs and Eterna profile is awesome. No IBIS and better battery life. But Fujifilm X-H2 will fix that. Fujifilm X-T3 is best hybrid video/still camera overall
  2. Panasonic G9
  3. Olympus EM-1 MK II
  4. Nikon D500

Overall, Fujifilm X-T3 is the way to go in the crop sensor world.

Which Older Fujinon X Mount Lenses Should Fujifilm Update Next? POLL

Fujinon XF Mark II

About 2 years ago, I asked you guys which APS-C lenses Fujifilm should make next.

Your response was overwhelming, and you recommended thousands of lenses. I meticulously collected all your suggestions, and made a 30 lenses poll out of them.

The rest is history: as you can see from the results here, you guys vote the XF33mmF1.0 followed by the XF16-80mmF4 as your most wanted lenses, which are exactly the lenses Fujifilm recently added to their X mount roadmap.

Today I’d launch another poll.

This time it’s not about completely new lenses, but about which “older” Fujinon lenses Fujifilm should update.

What does “update” mean?

Mainly it means:

I debated if I should include the XF16-55mmF2.8 and XF90mmF2, which I know many would like to have OIS. But I decided not to include them, since the workaround is to use Fujifilm X-H1 and future Fujifilm X-H2 with IBIS. And who knows if down the road there will be more IBIS camera bodies. Check out the Fujifilm X Camera replacement timeline here.

I will be very cruel to you guys and give you only 1 option to vote :)

Happy voting… and may Fujifilm listen also this time.
