DPReview Fujifilm X-A3 Review

DPReview published their Fujifilm X-A3 review today, which was mixed. While the X-A 3 did ok against other cameras in its class, the overall score of 74% is quite low even if it isn’t meant to be compared across camera classes. Hopefully, Fujifilm issues a firmware update to address some of the AF concerns and sluggishness. You can read the complete review here.

Pros Cons
  • Excellent detail capture and dynamic range in Raw images
