Don’t Buy The Fujifilm X-T2?

We have been covering the Fujifilm GFX 50S and X-T2 a lot on FujiAddict lately, but Fujifilm also makes a lot of great cameras for beginners. There is a tendency to lust after the latest and greatest gear, but most of what you can produce with a Fujifilm X-T2 could also be shot with the Fujifilm X-A3. It’s nice to want a “free” top of the line camera, but if you’re trying to pick out a good entry level, or even a first camera, the Fujifilm X-A3 or X-A10 are phenomenal values.


It would be far wiser to learn photography with an inexpensive body in a system that you would like to grow in than to jump around, because you can start to build a glass collection. Fujifilm has a lot of great and fun inexpensive glass now. The Fujinon XF23mm f/2, XF27mm f/2.8, XF35mm f/1.4, XF35mm f/2, XF50mm f/2 are great lenses to start with, or even the XF18-55mm f/2.8-4 zoom and XF55-200mm f/3.5-4.8. If you don’t find that glass affordable you can start with a XC16-50 and XC50-230, before deciding to branch out into XF glass.  The Fujifilm X70 would also be a great starting point for a beginner.

I don’t think many of my readers are new to Fujifilm, but I know there are a lot of people out there lusting after Fujifilm cameras since the launch of the X-T2 and GFX, when other gear might due. So, I feel it’s important to remind them that Fujifilm does have an entry level line, which is something the above Youtuber forgot or is unaware of, which might be bloggers/vlogers fault. After all, some of us are shooting specific gear, while others are just lusting after gear. I will try to do more to cover the full range in the future.
