Review Excerpt

  • Excellent image quality similar to Rebel T4i, T5i and SL1 DSLRs, with 18-megapixel APS-C-type sensor delivering considerable resolution for a mirrorless camera; Solid build and sleek design; Bright, high-resolution 3-inch LCD touchscreen monitor; Full 1080p HD video recording that's virtually silent with an STM lens.

  • Barely acceptable autofocus speed still lags far behind most mirrorless cameras despite firmware update fix; Limited physical controls and buttons, including no Program, Priority, or Manual on Mode dial; Lacks built-in flash or electronic viewfinder option; Only two compact EF-M mount lenses currently available.

  • 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
