The X100 from Fujifilm caught the imagination of photographers both professional and amateur, as well as kick-starting the Fujifilm renaissance after years of forgettable compacts. The latest incarnation, the X100T, will often find its way onto a photographer’s camera wish list, but at almost £800, it’s a more serious investment.
Which brings us to the X70 – smaller, cheaper, more compact and featuring many of the features that made us fall in love with the X100 in the first place, the X70 appears to tick a lot of boxes. How good is it?
