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.
Hardly any other company puts that much effort in creating really beautiful and useful color profiles like Fujifilm.
Fujifilm calls them “film simulations”: inspired by the look of old film stock, they try to bring some of that magic into the digital era.
In fact, Minami-San, the Fujifilm employee responsible for colors back in the film days, is still today working at Fujifilm and in charge of the digital film simulation development. You can see his story here.
One more nice thing: Fujifilm film simulation can be fine tuned ad libitum:

Capture One Pro 12 is on an unstoppable victory parade, being by a very (!!!) large margin your top choice when it comes to RAW editing software. Nothing comes close it, even though Luminar 4 is on a worthy second place (but still worlds away from Capture One Pro).
Let’s keep it short and clear: the Fujifilm X100V will NOT have the hidden LCD screen of the Fujifilm X-Pro3.
And to be even more clear: the Fujifilm X-Pro3 will be the ONLY Fujifilm camera with the hidden screen for the years to come. It’s unique to X-Pro3. Whatever comes, Fujifilm X-H2, Fujifilm X-T4, X-T40, X-E4, X100V, any GFX camera and more…. none of them will have the hidden screen.
Fujifilm X-Pro4? Well, I don’t know if it still has the hidden screen. As it is scheduled for 2023 anyway, I think not even Fujifilm itself knows at this point.
