Vlad Savov has written a review of the Fuji X-T20 for The Verge that captures what I love about Fuji’s camera system.
It’s tough for me to decouple the pleasure of shooting with the X-T20 from its eventual results. The process of capturing images with this camera is more satisfying than any other I’ve known (except maybe Fujifilm’s own X-Pro2, which I’ve only flirted with). Smartphones feel impersonal and, if I’m honest, kind of half-assed, like I don’t really care about the photo I’m taking. Full-fat DSLRs, on the other hand, would suggest that I care too much […]
Fujifilm’s mirrorless cameras are simply better. Our reviews of these cameras tend to devolve into emotional expositions about passion for the art of photography, but ultimately Fujifilm just wins on all the practical fronts that matter. The X-T20 has the best viewfinder, best ergonomics, and best image quality in its price class. The Fujinon XF lens ecosystem is unrivaled. If there’s any problem for this camera, it’s in convincing people that it’s worth trying — because I’m confident that once they do, they’ll fall in love with it just as I did.
I have been banging the Fuji drum for years now. The Fuji X-T2 (the X-T20’s bigger and older brother) has totally reinvigorated my love of photography. I try to bring it with me almost everywhere.
As for the X-T20, I’m not as big a fan of the smaller form factor cameras (I also own an X-T10 but I need the extra grip in order to enjoy holding it and shooting with it). But the image-quality-to-price ratio cannot be beat on this camera.
