I WILL be getting a Fuji X-T3!

I just watched your updated video before seeing the above post @Mattias Burling and the lens looks excellent before even taking into account it's relatively low cost.

A bit shorter than the 90, but longer than the 80 in reach, but smaller and lighter than both plus a faster f stop. Yep, I shall be getting one very soon as I do not have either of the aforementioned lenses and the 50-140 is often too big and bulky to be lugging around all day.

Would love to see a comparison shoot out for portrait work on the X-T3 between the Prime Lenses: Viltrox 85 mm F1.8 AF X mount (price? availability? Cannot seem to find it - $300?) vs Fujifilm XF 90mm F2 R LM WR ($699 USD) vs Fujifilm XF 56 mm F1.2 R ($749 USD) vs Fujifilm XF 50mm F2 R WR ($449 USD) vs Fujifilm XF 35 mm F1.4 R ($599 USD) vs Fujifilm XF 35 mm F2 R WR ($399 USD) vs Fujifilm XF 23 mm F1.4 R ($899 USD) vs Fujifilm XF 23mm F2 R WR ($449 USD). Range of prices: Around $300 USD to $899 USD. Lens length range: 23 mm to 90 mm. F stop range:  1.2 to 2. Let's see the work. You could add in lens lengths of a wider angle or longer telephoto. Also different lenses.

I own three XF Zoom lenses, which I have mainly for video work: the Fujifilm XF 10 - 24 mm F4 R LM OIS ($749 USD), Fujifilm XF 18 - 55mm F2.8 - 4 R LM OIS (kit lens with XT-3, sells for $699 USD separately), Fujifilm XF 55 - 200 F3.5 - 4.8 R LM OIS ($699 USD). Lens length range: 10 - 200mm. F stop range: 2.8 - 4.8. I own one XF Prime lens, the Fujifilm XF 35mm F2 R WR ($399 USD). Lens length: 35mm. F stop range: F2 to F16. I do love the results that I have from all of these lenses. It is a subjective decision in many ways, and it really depends on the light, color, scene, composition, model, story, and of course, how you are using your camera. Many factors. Understatement.

I recently switched switched cameras and have a few leftover Fuji items including 4 Wasabi batteries, 2 chargers and a vlogging mirror. Instead of putting them into storage, if an XT3 owner wants them, just drop me a message and I'll send them out to you. All I ask is the postage fees. Thanks!

It's available for pre-order at my local camera store as well as on eBay with world wide shipping.

The price is $359 :)

Another portrait shoot out comparison. Same model and photographer. Outdoors in direct sun. No flash. Three different camera bodies and lenses, all 35mm F1.4 Primes. The XT-3 also had the Fujinon XF 23mm F1.4 R Prime lens mounted sometimes. Two FF vs XT-3. Canon EOS R Mirrorless w/Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II USM Lens vs Sony a7 III Full-Frame Mirrorless w/Sony SEL35F14Z Distagon T FE 35mm f/1.4 ZA Standard-Prime Lens for Mirrorless Cameras (Zeiss) vs Fujifilm X-T3 w/Fujinon XF35mm F1.4 R. All in auto white balance with default profile. JPEGs out of camera. XT-3 used Classic Chrome film profile.
