Description

While the Fujifilm X-E2S offers excellent value, it does sacrifice a few features. The 7 fps burst speed has a better buffer than the X-T10 but is still fairly limited at just 18 JPEGs. The video has a good resolution, but limits clips to 14 minutes where many DSLRs offer up to 30 minutes. The battery life is average for a mirrorless, but low compared to a DSLR at just 350 shots per charge. Fujifilm has also omitted the optical image stabilization on this model and the flash sync is a lower 1/180. Despite having a few shortcomings, the Fujifilm X-E2S is well-priced for the feature set and offers a solid design and excellent image quality. If the rangefinder-style viewfinder and upgraded shutter speed don't interest you, you can likely save a few bucks with the original X-E2.
