Will Fuji X-T20 snap more outstanding quality of images than Fuji X-T2? Then we must say no. Because both of these two digital mirrorless cameras utilize APS-C sensor of almost equal size, plus these also employ same numbers of effective pixels, assuring that you can get gorgeous sharp images with stunning details. The performance of these two will also effective while shooting at lowlight areas since these two offers the expandable ISO of 51200, providing you images with minimum noise. On the other side, both manage to offer you 4K video @30fps.

AF system

Both the two cameras carry intelligent Hybrid AF system (contrast + Phase detection AF sensors), allowing the camera to track the fast moving subjects very quickly with immense accuracy. On the other hand, Fuji X-T20 as well as Fuji X-T2 allows you to utilize the creative 91 AF points (which can be divided into 325 points) to offer you undisputed accuracy. Approx. 40% of the imaging area (center area containing 49 focusing points) is covered with phase detection AF pixels to form a fast and precise phase detection AF area that can be used in a variety of scenes.

Weather sealed

Probably, one of the magnificent reasons Fujifilm X-T2 is standing different from X-T20 is its weather sealed body. Yes! The body is weather-sealed at 63 points, providing high level of resistance to dust and moisture and fabricated with its ability to operate in temperatures down to -10°C, allowing the users to take it with them wherever they go for shooting. Frankly, this one of the major reasons why the cost of Fuji X-T2 is more compared to its contender, X-T20. On the other hand, Fuji X-T20 has no weather sealed body.

Battery life

Fuji X-T20 is somewhere getting the credit for allowing the users to take around 350 shots at a time, whereas users can take around 340 shorts at a time with Fuji X-T2.


we didn’t notice very big differences in the specifications of these two cameras, but still Fuji X-T2 will give you something that must be appreciable. Little difference that we might notice while we go for shooting with Fuji X-T2 is that its buffer performance is way better than X-T20. Moreover, X-T2 also has dual cards slot (Not in Fuji X-T20) etc, plus the camera is weather sealed body etc. But if you are not intended to stretch you price level, then Fuji X-T20 is massive, full of tremendous specs and solid update for your current mirrorless camera.
