Sony might be the more mainstream brand that people think of when it comes to mirrorless camera systems, but Fujifilm has been quietly making waves themselves with their own X-series of mirrorless cameras, like with the X-T1 which many might consider to be a very underrated camera system.

Unfortunately if you were hoping to get your hands on the camera, you might be disappointed to learn that Fujifilm has officially discontinued the camera along with the cheaper and lower-end model, the Fujifilm X-T10 which was announced back in 2015. The X-T1 was originally announced in 2014 which means that both the X-T1 and X-T10 are 3 and 2 years old respectively.

When the X-T1 was launched, there were some complaints regarding its autofocusing system which many felt was slow. The company later released an update in 2016 to the camera’s firmware that helped boost the autofocus speed along with a bunch of other improvements. The X-T1 has since been succeeded by the X-T2 which was launched in 2016, while the X-T10 has been replaced by the X-T20 that was launched at the start of the year.

Reviews of both cameras have been largely positive, so if you’re looking to get a new mirrorless system, then the X-T2 and X-T20 might be worth your consideration.
