Reconciliations: Testing the Fujifilm X-T2 | Verity Milligan

Over the years I’ve had an on-again off-again relationship with Fujifilm. I had a lot of affection for the rather lovely X-Pro1 that I bought on a bit of a whim without even testing it out, and when asked I’ll still maintain that the 35mm f/1.4 is one of the nicest lenses I’ve had the opportunity to use (Russ, I can see your face right now). However, after some fluke accident in my camera bag, the screen of my X-Pro1 imploded, and I ended up replacing it with the X-T1, which I perceived to be a step up, but ultimately ended as a step sideways and down a little bit. The biggest issue I had with the X-T1 was it’s colour rendition and those infamous RAW files. Time and again in the field I felt let down. The camera seemed utterly unable to capture the dynamic range I was used to achieving with my Canon 5D Mk III, and what started as an exercise in reducing kit size turned into me carrying two systems and looking much like a kid on my first day of school (I’m 5’1).  No matter how much I tried, I couldn’t make the RAW files work for me. ……
