In part 2 of the FUJFILM X-T3 First look review, we will have a look at the image quality as well as look at some sample images. At the end, I will write my conclusions about the new camera! If you have not done so, I recommend that you check out Part 1 of the review here first. 
IMAGE QUALITYFirst of all, the usual disclaimer; I shot a pre-production copy of the X-T3 during a two week testing period. The firmware for the last week was version 1.0, which I suspect will be close to final release. As a third party RAW converter was still not available at the time of writing, all images are in camera jpegs and had minimal editing done to them. Please click on the images below for full size viewing.
Especially to test the dynamic range and recovery of highlights and shadows, I do prefer to wait till the RAW converter becomes available for Lightroom and Photoshop. Something that will probably happen over the next 10 days or so. 
By popular demand, I’ve shot a series of images to look at some basic sharpness and noise; all was set to default jpeg settings, using the Provia Standard Film simulation, shot with the 23mm f2 lens on a tripod, using the 2s timer. Focus distance was about 3ft (1m). No post processing sharpening or noise reduction. 

Zoomed to 200% in Lightroom with the X-T2 being on the left, X-T3 on the right. For fair comparison, the X-T2 images have been upscaled in PS to 6240px wide, like the X-T3.
