Thoughts on new Fuji X-Pro 3?

The small lcd screen on the back is definitely interesting. Fuji claims it "encourages a more traditional shooting style, asking photographers
to concentrate on composing using the viewfinder."
Sort of reminds me of the Leica M-D or M10-D, where it has no lcd screen on the back.
With Fuji making these "rangefinder" cameras and being more affordable than a Leica, I see it being a pretty good competitor.

As for my opinion on the X-Pro 3, I'm a little on the fence for the
small lcd screen. I'm glad it's there and that Fuji is trying to make us
focus on composition, but I would also enjoy having a normal lcd
screen.

I was excited for it before launch, but now my only response is "eh." The optical viewfinder doesn't really seem that impressive to me and that screen is a big flaw. I don't think it offers anything significant over the XT-3, which is a lot less. I suppose it's good as a Leica competitor, but I don't really see the appeal of a crippled camera, at least when it costs so much. I'd rather have a cheap film rangefinder.
