It’s time to say goodbye to one of my favourite all-time cameras, the Fujifilm X70. I’ve had two of these and have loved every minute of working with them. But it’s time to move on. Whilst my main street camera is the Fujifilm X100F (which I adore), there are times when a different focal length is called for and I have now found that flexibility in the diminutive but gorgeous Fujifilm X-E3.

The X-E3 has pretty much the same ‘engine room’ as the X-Pro2 and X-T2 but in a more compact body. For a street photographer who travels (or for a travel photographer for that matter), this weight saving is a game-changer. Okay, there’s no optical viewfinder (which I can live without) but the upside of this is less weight and a truly pocketable size.

As for lenses, I’m still enjoying the wider perspective my old X70 offered and my ‘go to’ lens for street photography is the 18mm (around 28mm equivalent); I also enjoy the wonderful 23mm F/1.4 (35mm equivalent) and occasionally (especially at night) the 56mm F/1.2 (85mm).
