Reviewed.com tested the brand new Panasonic GH5 (BHphoto, AmazonUS, Adorama). It’s a hell of a camera, but here is what they think compared to the Fujifilm X-T2 and X-Pro2:
“$2K pricing […] For that kind of money, you’re easily looking at a full-frame Sony A7, an awesome Fujifilm X-Pro2 perhaps, or maybe even a really great full-frame DSLR like the Nikon D750.
Function over form means it’s not amazingly designed
There’s no doubt that this is a workman-like camera. If you were hoping for something cooler-looking, then you’re going to want to look elsewhere. For instance, Olympus offers its jewel-like PEN-F for a lot less, and for my money, the Fujifilm X-T2 is far more attractive and fun to use. Since most cameras are really great these days, style is something to consider.
If you don’t love the way your camera handles or looks when you’re shooting with it, then what’s the point?”

This is one of the recurring themes, when people test and use Fujiiflm X-gear… these X-cameras are simply a joy to use and they look great. So feel free to tell us in the comments, how important are for you look and handling when you purchase a new camera.
