The Fujifilm X100F, X-T20 and XF50mmF2 will start shipping in mid February. That’s the current shipping embargo. However, as you know, you should take these kind of rumors always with a grain of… sodium chloride mineral ;)
Just recently, when I shared the rumor of the touch screen on the X-T20, I also said that I didn’t believe the Fujifilm X-T20 will shoot 4K Video. Of course it was just my personal guess… and of course I was wrong ;)
In fact, a source contacted me and said I better correct my speculation, since the Fujifilm X-T20 will be 4K capable.
I received some emails of fellow X-shooters, pointing me to some rumors saying that the Fujifilm X-T20 will have an articulating screen.
I have to inform you that it’s a fake. There won’t be any articulating screen, and not even a 3-way tilting screen like on the X-T2 or GFX. The X-T20 will have a regular 2-way tilt screen, just like the Fujifilm X-T10… with the difference that it will be a touch screen. And it also won’t have a Joystick, as reported here.
The X-T20 will be a downspece’d version of the X-T2. 24MP sensor + X-Processor Pro, but no super-high continuous AF burst, no weather sealing, 1 SD card slot and probably no 4K.
All the latest and greatest Fujifilm goodness will be launched on Janaury 19. Just tune in to FujiRumors… you’ll get all the news and rumors. And make sure you won’t miss anything, by following us also on Facebook, RSS-feedandTwitter.
For most part, the Fuji X-T20 will be for the X-T2 what the current X-T10 is for the X-T1: a downspece’d and cheaper version of the flagship. So expect the new 24MP sensor and X-Processor Pro, but not a super-high continuous AF burst mode, no weather sealing, 1 SD card slot and probably no 4K, since the camera will also be smaller than the X-T2, and hence heat dissipation will be a problem.
But the probably biggest difference will be the following: the Fujifilm X-T20 will not have a joystick. Instead, it will feature a pinch to zoom capable touch screen.

Fellow X-shooters, please mark this date in your calendar: January 19th, 2017. On this day, Fujifilm will unveil the Fujifilm X100F and X-T20.
Another detail has been unveiled by another source: The X100F AF led is now situated next to the flash.
Ending The Fake Rumors Confusion
If you are going to upgrade from the X100/S/T to the Fujifilm X100F, then you will have to buy the NP-W126s batteries. There is a 0,0% chance that, as claimed elsewhere, the NP-95 batteries of the X100/S/T will fit in the X100F.
I got some scared emails from X-shooters, worried that the X100F will not be able to shot ACROS, because fake rumors say it could feature the old EXRII Processor. As we know, and confirmed also by X-guru Rico Pfirstinger in our forum here “ACROS is an X-Processor PRO thing“. And of course you will be able to shoot ACROS with your X100F.
At CP+ in February in Japan, the X100F will be already “old” news… but this does not mean that other hot stuff could be announced there… who knows ;)
