After refreshing the premium end of its X-series lineup with the award-winning X-Pro2 and X-T2, Fujifilm has focused on the consumer segment of the market again by introducing its successor to the X-T10. The original idea of utilising a subset of the X-T1’s features and offering it in a smaller body at an affordable price always looked like it would be a recipe for success. The X-T10 turned out to be an excellent entry point for amateurs and aspiring enthusiasts who wanted their first mirrorless camera to bestow the charm of Fujifilm’s X-series styling with full manual control and a generous helping of buttons and dials.

The X-T20 was supplied for testing with various lenses. In this image it’s coupled to the 18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM OIS XF lens that is available as part of a kit for £1099. The X-T20 is also sold with the XC 16-50mm f/3.5-f5.6 OIS Mk II kit lens for £899.

We shared a lot of love for the X-T10, but when Fujifilm began rolling out their latest flagship models with a new 24.3-million-pixel X-Trans CMOS III sensor, we guessed it wouldn’t be too long before the X-T10’s successor received similar treatment. In the same way the X-T10 inherited technology from the X-T1, the X-T20 exudes some of the powerful features and functionality from the X-T2. Something that came as a slight shock however is its price. The X-T20 is £300 more than the X-T10 was at its time of launch, which asks serious questions about whether it still represents excellent value.
