Confirmed: Fujifilm is Working on the Ultimate APS-C X-Trans Camera
The previous rumor said Fujifilm is working on the ultimate APS-C X-Trans X-series camera that will cost around $5000. And this high end Fuji APS-C X-Trans camera will be placed above the current Fujifilm X-T2 ($1,599) and Fujifilm X-Pro2 ($1,699) mirrorless camera (maybe it is the rumored Fujifilm X-T3).
A trusted source (via Fujirumors) revealed that Fujifilm is indeed working on the ultimate APS-C X-Trans X-series camera. This new high end Fuji APS-C X-Trans camera is designed based on X-T line and is still under development. The price of this camera has not been set yet, but it will be much more expensive than all the current X-series camera on the market and it will be the best Fuji APS-C camera for video.
Speaking of the specs, designed for professional sports and action photographers, this new ultimate Fuji APS-C X-Trans X-series camera will have “killer features” like the previous rumored “maximum autofocus speed”. But the most important thing, I think, for customers, is the price. If this camera indeed cost around $5000, it is really hard for Fuji to compete with Canon and Nikon.
