    Almost all reviewers are praising the x-t3. It’s probably the best aps-c camera available now.

    if you can extend your budget, better get the kit with 18-55mm or 23mm lens, which are better value lenses and will likely have better resale value. ;)

    Thank you. The 18-55 will cost around 51k. I hope I can find a way to stretch my budget and squeeze in 9k more. Is the XF lens better than XC?

    read this in one of the fuji forums and this basically gives a nice summary of their differences:

    ---------------
    Optically, the image quality of the 16-50mm is fine and on par with the 18-55mm.

    For handling, the 16-50mm is very plastic and I did not find it enjoyable to use. The 18-55mm has great construction quality, and feels very good to use.

    If you want a light, cheap lens with good image quality then the 16-50mm is great value.

    If you want a fully featured lens with switches, faster aperture and good build quality then go for the 18-55mm.
    ---------------

    or if it will come out cheaper, get the x-t20 as body only and get a brand new/barely used kit lens from fuji groups in facebook where there's always a 16-50mm or 18-55mm on sale. :)

    XF lenses are the top-of-the-line series Fuji offers. XC are the budget models.

    Thank you so much. I will save up for the 18-55mm XF. I want a fully featured kit lens.
    I saw some photos of 18-55 with XT20, very nice, pleasing bokeh. Just amazing :)

    Copy. Thank you. XF 18-55 probably worth the wait and saving up more. :)

    But surely I cannot afford the XT30. :D
    I can only hope the price of XT20 to plunge further.

    fujifilm ph already has an srp for the x-t30, 53k for the body and 76k for the 18-55mm kit, with extras, plus options to get the small f2 primes with significant discounts ;)

    ^
    Body and Kit is almost the same price converted to SGD. By the way, what is the SRP of the 18-55 in the PH?
    The f2 lenses sale are a WIN!

    yep, definitely a great deal on those f2 lenses. now if only they included the newly launched 16mm f2.8 too.. or if this promo was also available for the x-pro2/x-h1/x-t3 bodies.. ;)

    based on their previous pre-orders, fuji's dealer partners (henry's, camerahaus, etc) only accept pre-orders at any of their branches
