DPReview: Fujifilm X-E3 Receives Gold Award

DPReview gave the Fujifilm X-E3 a gold award, which isn’t all the surprising. Fujifilm recently scored Gold awards for the X-T2, GFX 50S, and X100F. Only the X-T20 scored a Silver and X-A3 didn’t receive one at all. Fujifilm’s latest batch of cameras has been top notch.
