With the Fujifilm X-T2 release date now upon us, many people want to know how it compares to its predecessor - the Fujifilm X-T1. The X-T1 was originally announced in January 2014, and since then has gained immense popularity and has been the catalyst for many photographers to migrate from DSLRs to mirrorless cameras. Another comparable model is the Fujifilm X-Pro2 which was announced earlier this year in January to widespread acclaim.
So, in this article we review the new Fuji X T2, see how it compares to the X-T1 and the X-Pro2, and look at what improvements have been introduced.

Fuji XT2 review - Park Cameras’ opinion
In recent years, Fujifilm have released a series of outstanding cameras, with each successive one giving other leading manufacturers a lot to be concerned about. Where the X-T1 featured the world’s fastest autofocus upon release, and the X Pro 2 offered an innovative hybrid viewfinder, the Fujifilm X-T2 sets a new standard for mirrorless cameras. 4K video capability is a very welcome addition, as is its dramatically improved focusing abilities, and its brilliant Film Simulation functions.
Having had a sneak preview of the X-T2, we’re convinced it will be one of the most popular and advanced compact system cameras of the last few years, and even gives more expensive DSLRs a run for their money.
