Fuji’s midrange mirrorless lineup has a new member and not surprisingly it’s the little brother of the X-T2. It is designed to be a more affordable camera, but one that is still centered on great image quality, intuitive design and versatility. The X-T20 uses the same 24MP X-Trans APS-C sensor as the X-T2 and it also shares its advanced autofocus system.
The design is in line with the previous model but it lacks the X-T2’s weather sealing. It does however have a beautiful 2.36M dot OLED viewfinder that can easily rival optical viewfinders and a touch screen that works in photo, video and playback mode. Speaking of video, Fuji has taken the X-T20 into 4K land with up to 30fps.
Image quality is very good and as you would expect from a Fuji mirrorless camera, the color rendition is superb. It’s also a very fast little camera with a shutter lag of just 0.050 sec and an AF speed of 0.06 sec.
Besides being a beautiful camera, it’s also very fun to work. It’s responsive, feels great in your hands and as mentioned above, the image quality is very good. We highly recommend it for existing Fuji users who are thinking of upgrading but don’t want to pay the price of the X-T2, but we also think it’s a great all round camera for serious amateurs, travel photographers and street shooters.
