For the past month or so I’ve been trying out the new Fuji X-T10 and am now working on a short review. It’s an X-T1 with fewer knobs. The X-T10 give up nothing much to the more expensive and heavier X-T1 other than its lack of weather proofing and its slightly less belly-and-whistly but nonetheless wonderful viewfinder.
But at £499 in the UK, around half the price of the X-T1, it offers excellent value for money. Image quality is identical to that of big brother and, although smaller, the camera is really comfortable to hold. It plays quite well with larger lenses, too. In the main I’ve used the camera with the excellent 56mm f/1.2, the original, not the latest APD model. This lens, equivalent to a full-frame focal length of 85mm, is definitely one of my favourite optics. It has great bokeh and makes a tempting street lens for when you feel in need of a bit of distance between subject and camera. Nifty fifty, hocus pocus, sometimes a longer lens works wonders.
I’ll be reporting more on the X-T1 in the next few weeks.
