But what else can we expect from Fujifilm this year? Fujifilm used Photokina to strengthen its position in the medium-format camera market with the launch of the rangefinder-style GFX 50R, a cheaper and slimmer alternative to the the GFX 50S at the beginning of last year. It also announced development of the GFX 100S, a 100-megapixel monster due to arrive next year. With all that going on, we don't expect any more news from Fujifilm on the medium-format front, but there's still lots to talk about... and speculate on... in its APS-C X-mount range.
Fujifilm's hybrid rangefinder X-Pro2 went on sale in 2016, replacing the X-Pro1 which had been launched in 2012. We don't expect the interchangeable-lens X-Pro3 to be announced this year... but then it may make an appearance in 2019.
The arrival of the 26-megapixel X-T3 and its fearsome 4K video capabilities has left its flagship X-H1 model looking slightly underpowered, and we don't expect Fujifilm to let this situation last long. We've made some detailed predictions about what a new Fujifilm X-H2 might look like – imaging the power of the X-T3 in a rugged professional chassis with in-body stabilisation!
Now that the Fujifilm X-T3 has arrived with its 26-megapixel sensor and big power boost, how long will it be before it filters down the range to the X-T20... or perhaps we should call it the X-T30? Fujifilm's pint-sized mirrorless model already packs quite a punch, and a new and upgraded version could make it the go-to mirrorless model for enthusiasts.
