Review Excerpt

  • Smaller, lighter body than flagship X-T1; Plenty of external controls; Bright and high-res electronic viewfinder; Great still image quality even at high sensitivity; Good all-around performance; Capable Wi-Fi remote control; Good kit-lens options

  • Handgrip is rather shallow; Movie button is hard to press; JPEGs have limited dynamic range by default; Indoor white balance tends rather warm; Limited burst depth even for JPEG; Penalizes early shutter button press; Movie image quality lags the competition
