Ribbit74: One important thing to note is that the USB interface is still USB 2.0, not USB 3.0 like on the X-T2. So transferring the larger RAW files will require a bit of patience.

Makes perfect sense. I hadn't thought of the Sony scenario, and can totally see that. Would be a cool feature on the next version.

Turlututu: Would like a kit with the newer primes (f/2 line) as I already own the 18-55mm but none of these... Small primes + small body would be great !

Great idea! Buying the primes when Fuji has their lens rebates is a cost effective way to do that. In the US at least, Fuji is giving $100 of on a lens with an XT2 or XPro2. Maybe they'll extend it to the T20 too

VVS40k: Not sure about "make photographers very happy"... I am quite undecided at the moment. X-T20 with XF Kit costs close to X-T2. HARD TO CHOOSE!

Huh? $1199 vs $1899 in the US. $700 difference. The only way pricing is close is if you compare body only to the kit.

Jefftan: without weather sealing, in body IS this is surely not a pro camera
for a consumer level camera, $900 without lens is quite expensive

not just Fuji, every company is testing what is the upper limit market will bear
i think they all will learn in the hard way

consumer (non-pro) level is a $600 market
any above (especially significantly above) won't sell

If u get to pro level (with weather seal, in body IS) than higher price may be relatively OK
but still don't expect to sell in high number
and there are not many pro, there are many consumer

and at most $600 is what they will paid

Why don't you say what you mean? You WANT the camera to cost $600. Manufactures are free to price as they wish and consumers will decide. I think Fuji was extremely fair unlike Sony who soaks customers with each iteration. The latest RX100 is like $1000, as point-and-shooters use their phones, enthusiasts have shown they'll pay more for a product they want.

I thought about the price as well, and the X system will appeal to more hoot enthusiasts. IMO it doesn't compete with the soccer mom/dad special d3400/t6i that you find by the hundreds at your local warehouse store

sportyaccordy: As an A7II + Canon shooter in need of usable, high performance AF-C, this is really tempting. I'm just not quite sure I can live without my 24-70 2.8. 6D2 murmurs are growing louder and louder.

If nothing else, this is a major blow to the A6300/6500 for folks who don't shoot a ton of video. Sony might have 11 FPS, but Fuji doesn't charge you $1000+ for a decent tele zoom. If they can get this sensor down into the X-E3 Sony will have real problems

To me the Fuji X system is all about the wonderful primes. If I'm going to put a heavy-ish zoom, then a small Canon or Nikon SLR with lots of lens options seems to make more sense. Throw a f1.4 prime in the Fuji and you have an awesome compact package!

HaroldC3: As a long time canon m owner and prospective m5 owner, Fuji just made me take a long hard look at them. The x-t20 is what the m5 needed to be.

In my opinion Canon and Nikon seem to cripple their low end offering to protect their expensive bodies and lenses.

So you actually physically connect your camera to a computer as opposed to plugging the card into a reader?!?

BarnET: Wow,

This is gonna be my next camera.
We all expected the new sensor and processor.(Not this soon though)

What i did not expect was the touchscreen and advanced AF modes.

Those 2 features sealed the deal for me. Time to fork up the cash!

Yup, once I saw the same AF as the T2, it was a no brainer. I still really want the T2, but can't justify the $700 difference. If I were shooting professionally the higher shutter, dual cards, and weather sealing would probably be worth it.

jorgepr: Congratulations Fuji
Quality, innovation, design at just price.
Thanks for listening to the photographers / consumers.
Quite the opposite of what Canon has done.

You mean you're not looking forward to the Canon T9i and Nikon D5900? :)

jadot: Now do I keep my X-T1 (alongside my X-T2) or do I replace it with the T20?

Depends how much you value having buttons in the same place and how much better you think the 24MP sensor is vs. the build difference on the T1 vs T20 bodies.

kobakokh: Great camera, great sensor, great 18-55 lens. I am not a fan of Fujifilm, but anyway, really great camera in normal price. Just little overprices... X-T2 is very overpriced camera...

Overpriced because you say so? They've sold every X-T2 they can make. They're STILL not available on a regular basis after being released for months. But I guess it's overpriced because you think it is.

Why would they lower the price if sales are great?

I'm genuinely wondering if Fujifilm meant to release this camera this early. Sony recently announced that they would cease manufacturing 16MP sensors I believe. This led to the early demise of the X70, but Fujifilm could have help off for several months while X-T2 sales were still more than strong (still goes out of stock shortly after they arrive).

Fujifilm could have waited a few months or could have set the MSRP higher (and later angered early adopters with a hefty price drop)

Kudos to Fujifilm for releasing this camera at a fair price.

coody: Properly it cannot wins Sony A6500.

What do you mean "win"? Have you used a Fujifilm x-series. There's more than only specs. Have you shot with an X-Series. It's a very different experience than Sony.

Aroart: Wow.. Just got my Xt2 open box from Adorama for $1,299 ... Seeing this I felt a bit of sting for a second, but then thought I'll get this for a backup.. I think Fuji just came as close you'll ever get for the best camera for the $ with the 18-55.

Good deal. I would have snapped that if I had seen it. For $400 more i'd go X-T2 any day. For $700 i'd sit and think about if I really needed those features.

kewlguy: A perfect travel camera with 18-55 and an extra battery.

CJ Chen, you'd pick smaller sensored prosumer cameras just because they have a long zoom?!? I've thought I needed lots of focal lengths for travel, and while there are times i've wished I brought something longer or something shorter, the 18-55 range is often more than enough. I personally would rather have a small compact high quality kit such as this than have more range on a less impressive camera (both in terms or image quality, resolution, lens quality and usability of the camera itself)

In reply to:

PPierre: Hum, was considering an A7II, bit now, I may consider going Fuji again :)

You aren't going to get the same FF experience in the Fujifilm than you would in the A7ii. Having said that the X-Trans sensors are extremely capable, and Fujifilm appears to have skipped FF and gone straight to Medium Format on the GFX.

Sony's lens lineup is lacking and far less impressive than Fuji's. Also look at lens pricing, size and weight. For the most part the FE lenses are massive and attached to the smallish A7 bodies.

If I were to guess, i'd assume the A7 is due for replacement with an A7iii being released at around $2k. That's more than double the price of the X-T20. Factor in lenses and you're even higher.

In reply to:

GabrielZ: There's enough to diffentiate between the T20 and T2, just like there is between say Nikon's low and mid-range APS-C cameras despite using the same res sensors and similar image processors.

Keep in mind that current T2 pricing from the big camera stores allows you to add the grip for $100 more. So effectively a $200 discount on the package. That grip improves the performance of the T2 for those who need it. Faster FPS and shooting rates along with dual slots and easier access to AF via the joystick are worth the premium for those who need those features. For those who want a beautiful camera with most of the features, the X-T20 fits nicely. I purchased the X-T1 over the X-T10 when the price difference was only a few hundred. At $700 I'd get the X-T20, although I can see the need for the T2

CJ Chen: I can't jump ship right now because of large investment in Canon lenses. But I am really fascinated by how Fujifilm and others overtaking Canon in digital camera technology. I will give Canon a couple of years to see if they can get their act together. Canon, are you listening?

They're not listening and neither is their chief competitor. They will continue to keep their heads in the sand in fear or cannibalizing their existing profitable lens businesses. Panasonic, Fujifilm, Olympus and Sony have been innovating, while we see the same stuff from C/N. T9i and D5900 ... oh look we've added an extra setting. Seriously though, both camera series' have changed very little in around 10 years.

Kevin DiOssi: Fuji will have no trouble selling a LOT of these cameras. I'm highly considering one too as a Canon shooter.

Try one out. As a Nikon shooter I picked up an X-T1 a few months ago. It fits beautifully into a small bag, even with a few lenses. The lenses are reasonably priced for the most part, and the dedicated dials are just wonderful. The X-T20 will shrink that size down and provide more resolution in the new sensor.

Koemans: 900 dollars..? for camera that can film 4k??
Meanwhile, Kodak believes they can ask 2000 dollars for a camera with that function.

Oh wait, i mean canon... not kodak..

Yup same thing, and likely might go the same way as Kodak too. Canon and Nikon are too busy worrying about cannibalizing their existing businesses that they often purposely cripple their lower priced offerings. I stuck with Canon until they released the 6D with a single card slot and crappy AF. Nikon hasn't been much better, they just keep releasing the same cameras over and over and release new lenses with very minor improvements but steep hikes in price.
