Hunt's has a very good bundle price, $1399.95, on the Fujifilm X-T3 camera body (black or silver) and XF 18-55 lens.

I purchased something from Hunt's online a few weeks ago and was not charged Virginia state sales tax. This bundle price is $200 below what I currently see at the other online retailers, and if you don't get charged tax it is an exceptional deal. I'm not sure how long the sale will run. I think it was supposed to be over already, but Hunt's extended it.

Here are links to each bundle:

I spent about 3 days debating between XT3 and XT4 as my first fuji camera. I ended up going with the XT4+16-55 2.8 combo since I'm going to be doing handheld video and mostly indoor. I quickly found out most fuji lenses do not have internal stabilizing, OIS (this kit 18-55 does btw) which is a huge drawback for me having had switched from Sony. For anyone going fuji right now, I definitely recommend getting a used XT3, they're going for $800 used on eBay and most barely used. You'll be paying double the price for an XT4 right now and for the improvements, I find it only beneficial for those who really know what they're looking to do with their camera.

Reasons you may want XT4:
-Tilt screen for vlog
-bigger battery (lasts 2x as much vs XT3 battery)
-IBIS
-bigger grip for handling
-quieter shutter + 15fps (great for sports/wildlife)
-tracking speed increased but fuji can probably update the software on XT3 since it uses the same CMOS sensor
-2 new film simulations
-Goes up to 240 FPS vs 120fps

That is NOT the same camera. Your link points to an X-T30.

i don't know if its the x-trans sensor or the processing but i love the way that JPEGS come out of Fuji cameras. if you are on the fence don't be afraid to pull the trigger.

So essentially it's got massive improvements that may or may not be worth the value to some.

I was waiting for the X-T3 to drop and hoping for IBIS in the camera... It dropped and IBIS was absent, so I went back to Nikon and grabbed the Z6.

It's unfortunate that Fuji always appears to be a day late with their features, but I certainly wouldn't advocate going with the 3 over the 4 if it were me.

I had my choice of getting an X-T3 or X-T4 and decided on the X-T3 about a month ago. There is about a $600 to $700 price difference between them, and I didn't find the new features of the X-T4 to be compelling enough to spend the extra money. With the money I saved, I was able to pick up an additional lens. I also don't like the fully articulating screen on the X-T4. I am very happy with the X-T3 and probably won't consider another camera body until they release an X-H2.

See, I hated the LCD that took the place of the controls on the X-H1, so that was never going to be an option... However, It's my experience that the X-Trans RAW breaks down the higher the ISO, so keeping the ISO lower with the IBIS would be a huge benefit... Keep in mind, I'm not using these for video, just stills.

The 4K video is much better as well as the low light performance on the X-T4, the stability also works without an OIS lens. It out performs the X-H1 (which a second one will be arriving next year according to reliable leaks) the improvements are not light-years ahead but are enough to warrant the price difference at this time.

You're better off waiting for the next generation, or going with the BMPCC4K if you specifically want video, at this time.
