Ever since Fujifilm announced their first model in the X-series in 2011, the camera system has been evolving at quite a pace. The number of interchangeable lens cameras in the X-series now stands at eight models, and there’s a healthy range of 19 premium XF lenses to choose from – a far cry from the three optics that were initially available with the release of the X-Pro1. Today, it’s the X-Pro2 that claims the title of being the flagship model in the line-up; however it’s the introduction of the Fujifilm X-T2 that seems to have generated the most interest among admirers and users of the X-series.

Unlike it’s digital rangefinder-style sister models, the X-T2 is more in keeping with the shape and style of a conventional DSLR, and it’s the blend of a beautifully sculpted handgrip, centrally positioned electronic viewfinder and classic arrangement of buttons and dials that will make DSLR users feel right at home. In the same way as the X-T1 inherited technology from the X-Pro1, we were always expecting the X-T2 to embrace some of the excellent features and functionality from the X-Pro2 to ensure it goes one better than the company’s first attempt at an SLR-shaped model. The time has come to find out if it lives up to all the hype.
