Conclusion from DPReview:

The X-Pro3 is a unique mirrorless camera, and will appeal to those who want a waist-level screen or an optical viewfinder experience. It’ll be a camera you either covet or don’t see the value of, but that polarization is the X-Pro 3’s defining characteristic, and some photographers will find it very compelling.

Good for
Street and enthusiast photographers looking for something a bit different.

Not so good for
Sports or zoom-lens shooters. Photographers looking for a do-everything workhorse.

What we like:

  • Excellent image quality
  • Range of attractive film/color modes
  • Optical viewfinder gives interesting experience
  • Electronic viewfinder further boosts flexibility
  • Flip-down screen excellent for waist-level shooting
  • Attractive, detailed 4K video
  • USB charging is useful
  • Faux film stock sub monitor is undeniably cool

What we don’t like:

  • Optical finder doesn’t work as well with wide or long lenses as predecessor
  • Obscured rear screen limits some styles of shooting
  • AF point indication in OVF makes near-to-far parallax shift unpredictable
  • Some lenses (particularly the F1.4s) aren’t especially fast to focus, undermining the the immediacy of street shooting
  • Face/Eye detection mode a little prone to false-positives and requires input if your subject temporarily turns away
  • ISO dial is more decorative than utilitarian
