Fuji X-T10 Review: It’s smaller, lighter, and more affordable. Should you buy the X-T1’s tiny sibling?

Early last year, Fujifilm launched the Fuji X-T1, a deliciously lustworthy camera which combined cutting-edge mirrorless camera technology with retro styling in a way that actually made sense. Named as a Camera of Distinction in our 2014 Camera of the Year awards, the X-T1 really captured the attention of enthusiast photographers, thanks to a relatively compact design that was at once intuitive and feature-rich.

It also came with an enthusiast-grade pricetag to match, though, and while by enthusiast camera standards it was actually pretty affordable, that doubtless put it out of reach of many entry-level shooters who're still building their skill set. That's where the Fuji X-T10 comes in: In a way, you could look at the X-T10 as being an X-T1 Light. It contains a lot of what made its flagship predecessor popular, including the same imaging pipeline and similar retro ergonomics, but in an even smaller body with a few features dialed back just slightly, or pared away altogether.

But can Fujifilm hit the jackpot twice? And is the Fuji X-T10 just for the entry-level market, or could enthusiasts find themselves at home here too (and with some money in their pocket to spend on lenses and accessories?) Find out the answer to this and more in the just-published conclusion of our Fuji X-T10 review!

And don't forget to take a look at our image quality comparison and print quality analysis as well; both were just posted within the last couple of days. You'll also find plenty of hands-on insights in our Fuji X-T10 field test, filed earlier this year by Maine-based landscape and nature photographer Jeremy Gray.
