X-T200 MiniReview: It exceeded my expectations a lot.
4

This review is only about photography, I don't do video at all.

I decided buying it because I found an offer in a store consistent in the X-T200 + 15-45mm + vlogging kit for only 499€.

I was originally planning to buy the X-S10 but I wasn't very convinced so I thought thet I should wait for a X-S20 to see if Fuji put the 3 way tilting screen in a camera again. A few day later I found this offer for less than half the price and I pulled the trigger as a temporary camera because I was only losing the IBIS and the grip compared to the X-S10, and given that both share the small EVF, the lack of EFCS and the vlogging screen which was precisely the things I didn't like about the X-S10 it looked like great value.

The camera is super light, the grip is much better than I expected and I like the IQ out of the bayer sensor of this little camera more than the one in my former X-H1. I was also quite surprised by the IQ at ISO 3200 and 6400 and I'm coming from a Nikon Z6.

Also the screen looks gorgeous. I like it to be 16:9 because indications don't get that much in the way for 3:2 photos. Talking about the screen, I also like the customization and menu system. Even if this camera is aimed to unexperienced users I think it has more than enough room to have absolutely everything in a max distance of 3 clicks or touches if you spend a little time setting it up.

The only meh thing about the X-T200 is the autofocus, but it isn't that bad either.

I think I'm going to keep this camera for longer than I first intended. It is a shame that this camera was so overlooked that Fuji kinda discontinued so soon. Crazy good for the money and crazy lightweighted.

P.S. The XC 15-45mm is also another gem I didn't expected to like that much. At 15-18mm range I take landscapes as good as in my former X-H1 + 16-55mm f/2.8.
