Fuji X-T1 Review | Robin Schimko

Since Fuji came out with their X100, the retro styling has become very popular and other manufacturers have followed them. Cameras like the X100(s), X-Pro1 and of course the X-E series had the look and feel of old-school rangefinder bodies. Fuji did their homework quite well and photographers all over the world gave them credit for trying something new and I am pretty sure there are many people out there who just bought a Fuji camera because of their design. Then Olympus took that same approach but put it in a different package. Their OM-D E-M5 was the first digital interchangeable lens camera that looked like a classic SLR back from the days where photography was all about selecting the right film rather than pixel peeping and complaining about autofocus issues.Because of its popularity, Olympus extended their OM-D camera line-up, and there are now three models available. Now the originator of the retro trend strikes back with their brand new X-T1. But what are the pros and cons of the new Fuji and is it worth buying? Initial reviews have been very positive and it looked like the perfect camera, but I am not buying that until I get my own hands on one…….
