Fuji X-T20 And XF 50mm f2 R WR Lens Examples:

My friend from Hong Kong came here to visit me this week, and the Fuji X-T20 and XF 50mm f2 R WR lens have proven to be a great combo to carry along while walking around New York City.  Both are compact, and lightweight while also producing some fantastic image quality.  Here are just a few samples.  I’ll post more soon, and of course, expect full reviews of these two.

So far, I’m really impressed with the XF 50mm f2 R WR lens.  I definitely want one :).  The build quality is excellent, and I particularly like the weight of this lens.  It balances quite nicely on the Fuji bodies.  In addition to using this lens on the X-T20, I’ve used it on my X-T2 as well.  It’s a really nice size, especially when you consider the focal length.  The autofocus in most cases is very fast too.  From the examples I’ve taken so far, it is also a very sharp lens even at f2.  I may even actually buy my own copy of this lens after this review; it’s proven to be quite enjoyable to use, and I really like what it produces.

As for the X-T20, this has proven to be one of my favorite cameras so far.  I haven’t had it for long but I love this thing :).  I feel you’re getting quite a lot here for the price.  The camera feels very solid, and it is assembled very nicely.  I still have my original X-E1 lying around here, and if you compare the two, you can actually see how far Fuji have come along in terms of build quality.  The electronics are excellent, and that 24mp sensor helps in producing killer images.  This is a really nice package, and I wouldn’t be surprised if there are some who decide to save the extra money, and buy the X-T20 over the X-T2.

So, I’ll post more photos from the Fuji X-T20, and XF 50mm f2 soon.   I should have some more after this weekend.  Thanks for stopping by!

  • It is soooo hard to decide between the XT2 and XT20. I love the WR and joystick on the XT2. I don’t care too much about the grip but a bit about the 1/8000 mechanical shutter for some occasions (like shots on a snowy mountain with bright sunlight and wide open glass). I don’t know if those features are worth the extra cash for me.

      Hi Stefan,

      Sorry for the late reply! I totally agree! Both cameras are great, and the truth is, if you don’t need some of the fancier functions of the X-T2, the X-T20 will serve you just fine, and save you plenty of cash as well. I own the X-T2, but in some ways, I actually prefer the X-T20. The smaller size is noticeable. The joystick is nice on the X-T2 but there is also the touch screen on the X-T20. Good luck on your decision, and it would be great to hear what you ended up deciding on buying in the end. Thanks for stopping by!

      Best,

      Patrick
