Fujifilm, after having been stuck with more or less the same sensor for around 4 years, has been updating their rather robust lineup with the new 24 Megapixel X-Trans III sensor. First up was last winter’s long-awaited X-Pro2, and then this past summer, Fuji moved to update their extremely popular X-T1 with the new X-T2. It’s been out a little while, but I finally got a chance to run the X-T2 through its paces, and I have to say: Fuji’s got a winner on their hands yet again. Let’s dive in to the details.
The Fuji X-T2 is Fuji’s ‘second flagship’ alongside the X-Pro2, and while the feature set between the two cameras overlaps to some degree, the biggest differences between them come in the form of handling and differences that come from a DSLR-styled body vs. the rangefinder aesthetic of the X-Pro 2. The X-T2 will look very familiar to X-T1 owners, but the newer body isn’t an exact replica of the X-T1 in terms of body shape and size. Fuji has generally made a habit of keeping updates to their camera lines in the same general body, as the X-E1, X-E2 and X-E2s all share essentially identical bodies, and as such all accessories made for one will work with the other. The same is true for the new X-T20, which has the same body size as the X-T10 it replaces. However, the addition of dual card slots in the X-Pro 2 and X-T2 makes both bodies just a tiny bit bigger than their predecessors. As such, if you have a grip made for your X-T1, it will not fit on the new X-T2….
