    Have two X-T1s, 16/23/35/50 Fujicrons, and an X-100T. Shoot the X-100T most often. Think of the fixed 23/2 as opening a creative door, not a barricade. The 35mm equivalent is ideal for street, candids, travel. It's pin-sharp. The hybrid viewfinder is a small miracle. They're all metal, Japanese-made, and stealthy. X-100T and X-100F aren't pricey used.

    If you want a small MILC, the X-E3 and new X-E4 are worth a look. They're a bit small but the optional Fuji hand grip helps greatly especially with bulky zooms.

    ditto, i'd get the x-t4 and use the x-t3 as a back up. but if your stuck with a $1500 budget i'd go with a used x-t3 or x-t2. i prefer the x-t series over the x-pro series. i also had the x-e1 but found it too small to use comfortably with larger lenses.

    Very interesting! I may have to get my hands on one of these to see if it fits.

    Hah! The only thing I’m buying “for her” for the next six years is college tuition!

    Why don't just get a Sony RX 100 VII or an RX0 II? You aren't going to get smaller than the XT3 without going 1/2 inch sensor or micro 4/3rds

    This simply isn't true. Fuji has plenty of cameras smaller than the X-T3. I really enjoy the old school tactile feel and look of fuji cameras, and I also really enjoy their color science. I've almost entirely stopped shooting RAW these days because Fuji jpeg files are just so good.

    The only thing smaller is an XT-30 by 1.5cm in height and 1cm wide. That's not what's going to be inconspicuous vs what you already have

    Xe-3 (x pro 2 sensor and more options than xe-4), or Xt 30. You already have Fuji lenses so an x100 would not allow to use them.

    Investigate the X Pro 3. I know you said the budget was about $1500 but the camera is worth a look. I have one and use it as a "walk around " rig, 23mm lens. It's light and compact and the hybrid viewfinder is terrific. Controls easy to learn and use. I've been a Nikon and Leica guy since the early 60's and discovered the Fuji brand. Still use the others but love the Fuji. Another thing about the brand: customer service is excellent.
    Good luck.

    I do a lot of live view shooting, so the x-pro 3 is out for me. But I have been considering an x-pro 2.

    some X100 series :) (F or V) ... depends on what you want to do .. if you wanna shoot wildlife while waiting for your light with your other camera on tripod and all set, x100 won't certainly do a job .. but on the other hand why to just have two cameras from same class like x-t3 and x-h1 :D, just why :D ??

    x100f just healed me from my camera backpacking obsession when I go for just a travel (business trip or just travel with family) .. I can just take for a travel 800 grams of it (including a little thing like lenspen) and that's it ..
