It's basically a rangefinder style X-T20.

Also a 45mm for the cropped medium format GFX (~36mm FF equivalent) and a 80mm Macro for the X series APS-C bodies.

The X-E3 is to its bigger brother X-Pro2, what the X-T20 is to the X-T2!

The XF80/2.8 macro is very expensive!!!
Available in November 2017 for US$1,199.95
Also at 750g weight and a size bigger than the XF90mm F2.
This lens is larger and heavier than most FF macro lenses

Actually Fuji is re-positioning this camera as a rangefinder style XT-20

Yes, a rangefinder style body but not a true rangefinder camera.
The specs for X-E3 and X-T20 is almost identical especially their EVF as well as LCD Display.

Yup, I used the word STYLE on purpose ;)

Actually for me, since I am a left eye shooter, the pentaprism "style" cameras work better than the rangefinder style camera.  The rangefinder style completely covers my right eye where the pentaprism style does not.
