DPReview finished their review of the Fujifilm X-T2 and they have come away pretty impressed, giving the camera a Gold Award. The X-T2 corrects the short comings of the X-T1, while improving the camera in just about every way.

  • Dual hinged rear screen suits both stills and video shooters
  • Impressive 4K video quality and associated support tools

  • Simple and effective Wi-Fi system for image transfer
  • USB 3.0 for fast image and video transfer
  • USB charging is convenient

  • Excessive noise reduction can result in over-smoothed skin detail at high ISO
  • Camera’s full AF capability only available with a subset of lenses
  • Subject tracking, while good, is not be dependable enough for professional use
  • AF performance drops significantly in low light
  • Phase detection region is somewhat small by contemporary standards
  • Choice of three Auto ISO presets more complex than necessary
  • Limited control over autofocus in video mode
  • Battery grip is required for extended video clips and audio monitoring
