A lot of new cameras came out already and here is the next one. As I am also a Fujifilm user, this one got my special interest. The X-T1 is/was a great camera and the new X-T2 is even better.
Many websites already published some tests/reviews of the pre-production models and also some test photographers published their findings. One website I really like a lot is the one from Jonas Rask Photography. He was one of the test photographers who tested the new Fujifilm X-T2 and on this link you can read the full review and see some beautiful photos.

This is all from the pre-production model so we can expect that final image quality will be even better. This is absolutely stunning.
