    Nice overview. One thing not mentioned is how would either of these cameras integrate into an existing Fujifilm kit?

    I just bought the X-E3 for $499 USD to add into my stable of Xpro2 and X-T2 cameras. I could have jumped to the X-T30 or even the now price reduced X-T3, but I wanted identical sensors and processors among all of my cameras for continuity of output.

    If Fujifilm has the best jpeg output, and I think it does, then I want to be able to set the camera in my hand to a setting that gives me the result I want and not have to factor in the generation of the camera. I set my custom film simulations up identically with a narrative that displays when scrolling through the Q menus, such as “general color”, “high contrast color”, “daylight B&W” etc… Every camera has the same setup and order for 7 different scenarios. I can expected the same great results regardless of which camera I use.

    Having all the same sensors and processors in every camera is like using Kodachrome in multiple film cameras… you know what you’ll get.

    FWIW, I’m glad I got the X-E3. As small as the other two are compared to my full frame Nikons, after using the X-E3 for a few outings, even the Xpro2 feels huge when I grab it.

    I wished there was more written about the quality of the files.
    I own and shoot with an XT2, three XE2’s and two XPro1’s. Of all these Fuji cameras, the Jpeg output of the XPro1 is the most filmic of all of them, let alone other cameras from other manufacturers. And if I am not mistaken, they both have the same sensor. I guess what I am trying to convey is “output”, later generations have a more digital look vs the earlier XTrans sensor.
    You wrote all about the technical aspects, but not the “soul” of the camera, its ouput.
