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.
