I‘ve been using Fujifilm’s X-T2 Graphite for almost a year now and so far my experience has been great. I wasn’t really planning to shift (long time Nikon user here) but I’ve been hearing a lot of good things about Fuji from my professional photographer friends. Tried it first by getting the X-T10 a few years ago just to get a general idea of how Fuji camera works. After using it for quite a while, I sold my Nikon camera and never looked back. I fell in love with it.
I basically used it for a very good amount of time after deciding on picking up their current flagship model which is the X-T2, particularly the “graphite” version – which is a bit more pricey compared to the default black color. The silver tone of the graphite version is very different compared to the silver versions of the X-T10 and X-T20. It changes color depending on the position you’re looking at it. It’s somewhat similar to the space grey look of Apple’s current line up of iMacs and Macbook Pros.
The shop was originally offering me the “kit” version with an included lens, but I opted for the “body only” version since I already have a couple of lenses which I bought way back when I was still using the X-T10. I also had a hard time deciding since the shop also has the graphite version of the X-pro2 kit which is highly praised by my professional friends. I weighed the current pros and cons of the two cameras and ultimately settled for the X-T2.
Immediately bought a couple of accessories like the leather case, soft shutter button, and straps to pimp out my new camera and so far, it looks great! I also attached the Meike 35mm F1.7 (which is an amazing lens btw) in most of the images posted here.
Here are a couple of more angles. I’m really loving the “timeless” look of the graphite silver coating.
The overall performance is great. I don’t do photography for a living but I could tell the improvements over my X-T10. I also now have a bit more room on post because of the bump in megapixels. Here are a couple of low light shots at my office.
It’s been a while since I last did a toy/figure photography session and can’t wait to try this camera out.
