The Fujifilm X-E4 (set to replace the older Fujifilm X-E3 this year) seems to have been axed, according to reports on Fujirumors. However, it's not just the X-E4 that's finished before it's begun, the entire X-E line seems to be cast to the wayside as the X-E3, now discontinued, might be the last of its generation.The X-E3 packed a lot of features inside a small, compact, minimalist design, reminiscent of rangefinder cameras, which many Fujifilm fans loved. We would expect the X-E4 to have even better features, higher resolution and improved video capabilities. So it's a shame we may never get our hands on it, if the rumors are true, because it's been nearly three years since the X-E3 was released. Fujirumors themselves are struggling to find a reason behind this rumor:
Maybe many of you will agree with Fuji’s decision. Maybe you will think Fujifilm has to simplify and streamline its line-up. And maybe it “rationally” makes sense to drop the X-E line.
Maybe the only reason is because the X-E line has had low sales? Nothing is yet officially confirmed, but in case the X-E4 doesn't surface, you can still pick up the Fujifilm X-E3 body only for $699.95. See below for a summary of the X-E3's specs.
