Mirrorless camera – Outstanding image quality in a gorgeously styled body
- 24.3MP X-Trans APS-C CMOS III sensor
- High frame rates

- Review price: £1599
Another exciting mirrorless model to make its way into the market this year is the X-T2, which offers such superb usability and image quality that many are jumping ship from DSLRs to join the mirrorless revolution.
The X-T2 produces beautiful, high-quality images. In fact, if you purchase the optional additional battery grip then you can really get the most from this wonderful machine, including the super-high frame rates and more flexibility with 4K video recording.
This camera is joint-top of Fuji’s lineup with the flatter-style X Pro 2; which one you favour will largely be down to your preference over styling. The X-T2 is arguably the better all-rounder, being ideal for moving subjects and having a more traditional shape for DSLR converts.
The electronic viewfinder is class-leading, while the screen’s tilting mechanism is also useful for a variety of different angles - it’s just a shame it isn’t touch-sensitive.
When it comes to AF performance and speed, the X-T2 is one of the zippiest out there, with a decently sized buffer and capability to keep up with pretty fast-moving subjects – even sports photographers may consider the X-T2 for their work.
It wouldn’t be a Fuji without some beautiful retro styling and design, and the X-T2 offers such highlights in abundance - it oozes style and you’ll be proud as punch to be seen walking around with this.
