And then I Thought: “Stop Waiting for the X-E3, and get the X-T2/Zero (X-T20)” … Did Fujifilm Hit the Sweet Spot with the X-T20?

Share

The more I read about the recent epic Fujifilm announcement day (live blogging here), the more I start to think, that, in the shadow of the mighty Medium Format GFX and the sexy X100F, I completely underestimated the power of the little and inconspicuous Fujifilm X-T2/zero… or X-T20.

Yes… X-T2/Zero. Because it is really almost like if someone would have shrinked the X-T2 into a smaller and much more affordable body, just as Palle Schultz showed in his humorous and entertaining X-T20 video here. And this is why Palle calls it the X-T2/zero.

It has the nice 24MP X-TransIII sensor, the X-Processor, the tilting touch screen, up to 325 focus points, it shoots 4K video (!!)… and has even the AF-C Custom settings of the X-T2….that’s a lot of stuff for a camera that costs about half the price of the X-T2 and X-Pro2.

And suddenly a tought came in mind: “Stop waiting for the X-E3 and get that X-T20“.

Now, the only thing that prevents from making the switch to X-Trans III is my infinite love for the design of the X-E line. My resistance is strong… but is also slowly crumbling…

The Fujifilm X-T20 might just have hit the sweet spot in the X-line and be the best value for money today in the X-world.

What A Great Start :: Fujifilm X100F Best Selling X Series Camera at AmazonUS Overall Ranking (5th)

Share

So which one of the new Fuji gear had the best sales start today?

According to the AmazonUS overall digital camera ranking, it’s the Fujifilm X100F (currently 5th and 7th). Far behind there is the black X-T20 kit (63th). Of course it’s difficult to compare the sales between X100F and X-T20, since the latter one is sold in at least 6 different combinations, as opposed to the 2 options (silver/grey) for the X100F. If we take a look only at the mirrorless camera ranking, the X-T20 is 9th (black body).

A nice start I’d say. :)
