Am seeing a lot of X-Pro3 bodies for sale.
Not many X-Pro2 bodies for sale.

Wondering why such a big difference?


I haven't read the other replies but I recall seeing plenty of defects reported with the 3 (same with the X100V). I wouldn't buy either used, whereas I didn't bat an eyelid buying from "not ideal" sources with the 2 and the XT3, which I see as solid cameras.

It's hard to correct decades-long habit of shooting and looking at the LCD screen. I'm still dealing with that with my X-Pro3 But it's nice to know I don't have a big fragile exposed LCD in the back of the camera. It really does force you to concentrate on shooting instead of chimping.

So, when you look through the viewfinder on a camera with a rear screen...

... you know you can't see the rear screen anyway, right?

As to chimping, you can decide not to do that even when a rear screen is on the camera. If you need to discourage yourself from looking for some reason... just choose the setting that leaves the rear screen off. The area occupied by the screen will be... blank and black.

And, there are times when seeing that rear screen (with the last required manipulation) is useful — quick access to multiple settings and menus without holding the camera to your face, quickly sharing an image with your subject to help them understand what you want or to reassure them, a quick check to see if you got what you wanted, shooting with the camera in a position where you cannot get your eye to the viewfinder (very low to the ground, beneath obstructions, over your head, etc.).

There's nothing more "honest" or ethical or serious about not using a rear screen in situations where it provides useful value and contributes to the quality of your photographs.

Meh. The Xpro3 style is still cool and a nice change from the regular camera style, and I love it for that.

The way I shoot, I switch fluidly and frequently between screen and VF. Often the screen is the discrete option, which I tend to use almost blind, so as to avoid making it obvious I'm taking a picture (of my kids, nothing nefarious here).

The flip-down screen of the X-Pro3 just looks like a downgrade for that. Plus, I bought the X-Pro2 as a slower, more deliberate camera, and as such it has much less need for the fastest AF than, say, the X-T3 I use for birds.

I just sold my X-Pro3 Dura Silver. I was an early adopter and have really enjoyed the camera. Why sell it? Well, it just wasn't getting used since acquiring my Leica Ms and a Q2. When Fuji does come out with a X-Pro4 (likely sometime in 2024) I hope they keep the same fold down LCD design they have now with the X-Pro3. Honestly I miss that simple and quick acting design on my Leicas. I think it is unique and brilliant.

There are better screen designs that could make a wider range of users happy. For example, one of my wife's cameras is the Canon R. On it the screen can

- remain in the rear facing position where you can view it without flipping it out.
- be reversed so there is no screen on the camera back.
- flip out to the side.
- tilt up or down.
- face forward.

For my use pattern, I'd be happy with the screen design of the XPro2 — it faces the back, it doesn't move, it can be turned off to leave the camera back side black.

Given how I think most people use the XPro cameras, a more flexible option would be to simply allow the screen to the on or off, and to tilt up or down. Not sure that we really need the selfie screen position on the XPro cameras.

I have an X-S10 and an X-Pro3, and I prefer the X-Pro3 screen. When needing to look at it, one can flip it halfway down (90 degrees) and look down, which I prefer to either having to hold the screen up to eye level or flipping it out to the side. I also like the big viewfinder on the side where I can easily see menus or whatever, and can brace my nose against the edge of the camera for stability without it having to smear the screen.
