I normally shoot a Sony a7R II or Sony a6300, but last weekend I rented a Fujifilm X-T2 with a 35mm f/1.4 lens from BorrowLenses.com. I needed the 35 f/1.4 for a ballet shoot I was doing in Detroit, but I was really excited to play with the Film Simulation Modes on the X-T2.
Instead of using film emulation tools from VSCO or Mastin Labs, the film simulation modes on the X-T2, in combination with the EVF, allow you to see your shot, with the desired film simulation applied, while you're shooting. ACROS was my favorite mode. You always feel more creative shooting black and white, but ACROS takes it to the next level. To take advantage of the film simulation modes, I had to shoot in JPEG, but you can shoot in RAW + JPEG for the best of both worlds. Lightroom will display the RAW images in color, which kinda makes sense.
The film simulation modes, and the large dials for adjusting your shutter speed and ISO, made the X-T2 fun to shoot, but I won't be switching from Sony anytime soon. I wasn't a fan of the grip on the X-T2. The Sony cameras have beefy grips that feel very secure if your hand. I constantly felt like I was going to drop the X-T2. My a6300 has more focus points than the X-T2, but I don't think the lack of focus points bothered me as much as the speed and accuracy of the AF. I did some portrait shots with the X-T2, and I really missed the lock-on Eye AF that you get with the Sony cameras. The X-T2 has face and eye detection, but it isn't the same. I was happy with the image quality on the X-T2, and found it very comparable to the a6300.
Overall, I really enjoyed shooting the Fujifilm X-T2, I'm really happy with the shots I got, and I was sad when I had to send it back. After my experience with the X-T2, I'd love to get my hands on the Fujifilm GFX 50s medium format mirrorless camera. BorrowLenses.com can add that to my wish list right next to the Hasselblad X1D-50c.
