Fujifilm launches its third APS-C body of the semester and returns to its first love with the X-T5: a retro look, but a sensor still very defined (40 Mpx). A device geared entirely towards photography, but which doesn’t forget video.
Fujifilm already had a very defined and successful body with the X-H2. With the X-T5, the Japanese firm brings together what made the success of the X-H2 and the more traditional design dear to the company and certain photographers. A more defined viewfinder and more precise AF tracking would have made it possible to take it to the firmament. However, there are no false notes and the compact and efficient case has little to envy of the 24×36 cases.

NB: The reported price drop is calculated by comparing the lowest price of the day with the average of the lowest prices charged by all merchants for the product last month, with security rules to exclude the prices of stores whose the VAT policy is not clear (so-called “gray” stores, typically in the case of imports from China).
