We had been shooting around with a pre-production version of the Fujifilm X-T10 for some time and recently got in a final version of the camera.

Fujifilm X-T10 First Impressions & Image Samples

The Fujifilm X-T10 shares a similar relationship to the X-T1 that the OM-D E-M10 shares with its siblings - advanced features borrowed from a higher-spec model in a compact body.
