After testing the much awaited (3 years!) top of the line Fujifilm X-Pro2, I must confess I wasn’t very interested in the Fujifilm X70.
In fact the conversation went like:
Fujifilm rep: Keith, the pre-production unit for the X70 just arrived, will you be interested in testing it?
Me: How’s the specs like?
Fujifilm rep: It’s X100T, but smaller and without the hybrid EVF.
Me: meh, I have the X100T and love it. Why should I be interested in the X70?
Fujifilm rep: It sports the same X100T XTrans II sensor, all packed in a body more compact than the Ricoh GR and ya , like the size of the Sony RX100IV.
Me: !!!!! You are joking right?
Fujifilm rep: And it has a 180 degrees flip LCD, a 28mm F2.8 lens in front and yes, touch AF and touch to snap.
Me: [O_O]” let’s meet up!
And here's presenting the Fujifilm X70 APSC sized sensor compact.
Yes, it’s so compact that Kei, an 18 months old toddler is holding it here snugly.
