Fujifilm launches the X100F and the X-T20

Dan Seifert, for The Verge:

The fixed-lens X100F (“F” stands for “fourth,” as it’s the fourth X100 series camera, in case you were wondering) carries over many of the features of its predecessor, including the clever and innovative three-mode hybrid electronic and optical viewfinder. It maintains the 23mm f/2 lens and basic overall design from the earlier X100 cameras, but gains the integrated shutter speed and ISO dial and rear joystick from the X-Pro2. Fujifilm says it also redesigned the controls of the X100F to all be accessible from the right side, to better enable one-handed shooting with the camera. […]

The interchangeable lens X-T20 replaces the excellent X-T10 from 2015 and provides the same image quality as the more expensive X-series cameras while costing under $1,000. It, too, has the new 24-megapixel X-Trans III CMOS sensor and X-Processor Pro and has the new autofocus system used in the X100F, plus new continuous autofocusing settings. The X-T20 can also shoot video in 4K resolution, up from the 1080p output of its predecessor.

The Fujifilm X-T2 is one of my favorite cameras of all time. If I didn’t already own one, then the X-T20 — which looks like it’ll be a smaller version of the X-T2 — would certainly be something I’d want for my camera bag.

The Camera Store TV (one of my favorite YouTube channels) has a really great rundown of these devices:

As for the Fuji X100F, it succeeds another one of my favorite cameras of all time. I may want to pick one up when it drops in price. PetaPixel has a great review of it.
