    If true, it'll be interesting to see how many ditch their current X-T2's for it.

    If true, I think it's too soon to release it. The X-T2 hasn't been out for a full year yet and already a replacement.

    Unless sales have stalled. IBIS on a Fuji would be tempting.

    Great. I bring up image stabilization and Bill flips the bird.

    Hopefully, this also means an X-E3 will also be released, say with a basic IBIS system and the better system for the X-T2s?

    I'm never quite understand why folks get so hung up on Optical Stabilisation! In these days with high ISO noise reducing capabilities the cause of slow shutter speeds due to poor light availability is almost negated...surely. There would have to be a much more important upgrade to make me consider changing.

    In camera IS is incredibly useful. I use Olympus and Fuji bodies and the 5 axis IBIS makes a big difference in what camera I use. I may just not have steady hands but I'm not alone. Of course, folks increasingly expect to do nighttime photography without flash. Maybe not for everyone, but this will be a huge selling point.

    I would hope they continue to improve on the autofocus tracking.

    Fuji will always continue to work on improving the auto focus.

    As they should. Any edge in AF is a major plus for any camera maker, and Fuji seems to work really hard to improve its cameras.

    I purchased the Fuji 100-400mm about a month ago for use with my X-T2 for static wildlife it's excellent, but when it comes to tracking it's pretty poor. No a patch on my Nikon D500 + 300mm f4 PF/Sigma 150-600mm combinations. This is of course more likely to be the X-T2 not the lens, so yes for this reason I hope that any X-T2s provides a massive upgrade on focus tracking.

    Also and I've mention this to the Fuji technical staff, I hope they have proper custom banks where individual settings for e.g. action (wildlife), landscape, portrait and travel can be stored and switched to quickly. This would bring any X-T2s much more in line with Nikon.
