I always enjoy reading other people’s blogs/posts about their journey to switching over from one of the other manufacturers. I get that some people get fed up with size and weight issues (their camera rigs, people), others feel like manufacturers aren’t listening to what the people want or that Fuji cameras, and their output, are just flat out better than the rest.
Me? I don’t know…I love(d) my Nikons. I did sell off my D750, D7200 and 97.8% of the Nikon lens collection…but something inside me won’t let me cut the D300 bodies loose. It’s not that my X-T1 has left me wanting with what I shoot (surf, turf and…whatever) but I love the output of that generation of Nikons
I somehow have the feeling, that Ted Vieira is not the only X-shooter out there at the moment, who struggles with this question: is the Fujifilm X-T2 worth the upgrade from the Fuji X-T1?
Well, actually Ted has no hesitations, since he says he would switch “in a heartbeat“. But he has also a few words of love for the X-T1 at the end (well done Ted… a bit of Love for the X-T1 doesn’t hurt these days).
And what about you? Worth the Upgrade? Here is the Poll
A month ago, I’ve launched a “Super-Poll” here, where I asked you which camera do you prefer for the different photography genres. Several thousands of X-shooters have dropped their vote, and it turns out that in most cases X-shooter prefer the X-T2.
However, the X-Pro2 shines in 3 photography styles: Street, Documentary and Travel Photography.
The Poll results show that the two cameras don’t really compete with each other. The X-Pro2 and its rangefinder style with HVF corner placement perfectly harmonizes with the small Fuji primes, making it a ideal package for documentray photography & Co. But if you are looking for the better allrounder, than I’d recommend you to grab the Fuji X-T2.
That said… you know what you mainly shoot, you know your needs. And you have the answer!
And all the Rest
Ok… I did my homework and made one of the hardest Live Bloggings ever. With about 40 links to first looks and videos, I’ve tried to cover the event as good as I could.
But the coverage continues on our forum: Fujifilm X-T2 Reviews Here. Feel free to drop your findings over there and check out what others have spotted.
