Fujifilm X-T2 Reviews/Previews/Hands-on

I am in the process of reading all the reviews and product information out there to better understand the differences between the Fujifilm X-T2, X-T1 and X-Pro2. I hope I can save readers a little time by commenting on the various written reviews with details that stand out about them so you can avoid filler and/or click bait. I’m not going to reveal their conclusions, because half of the writers admit their bias. I’m also not going to comment on all of the videos posted below because the fixed pace makes them unrealistic to quickly absorb, but I will be reducing and reorganizing them and the coverage throughout the day so check back frequently for the best X-T2 coverage.

Interesting details:
Lightroom and Camera Raw already support the X-T2’s RAW files!
Log is wide color gamut
EVF operates at 60fps and 100fps in boost mode (X-Pro 2 54 standard and 85 high performance)
X-T2 responds in 118ms (X-T1 in 280ms)
X-T2 startup time .3 sec (X-T1 .5 sec)
4k limited to 10 min without battery grip and 30 min with battery grip
4k video is down sampled from 5120×2880 to 3840×2160 which is a 1.17x crop
1k video is
F-Log is 4:2:2 8-bit
With battery grip you get 11fps with mechanical shutter and 14fps electronic shutter
