Just sold my surplus X-T1 so looking to add one of these to my X-Pro2 & X100t for everyday use.

Some great images here, anything worth knowing before I push the button on one?

Yes Jim. It's so pocketable and good that I'm probably going to sell the 10-24 instead. I've not taken it out the house since I bought it off here a few weeks ago. This x-70 is so good to use for landscape too. I've got a 3 & 5 stop Nd filters too.
I regretted selling mine like you say it's so pocketable and ideal for dog walks for me. It's probably getting used at the minute more than my xt2. It's now discontinued as well so worth keeping hold of.

How's the X70 for family photos? Does the 28mm distort a lot? How is it indoors w lowlight? With it being similar FOV to mobile phones was thinking it's a wife friendly camera. Decent sensor and small.

On a personal level I am more interested in the X100 range but the T and F are a lot pricier.

Depending on what form it takes - I was reading on DPR about various 1" vs APS-C / x40 vs x80 possibilities for this camera...if it happens of course..

Anyone using the Fuji viewfinder for the X70? Wondering if it's worth the investment or if there's other options to consider.

my team volunteered to today working in the brixton soup kitchen. i was asked to take some photos throughout the day. we spent the day organising the clothes donation room, cooking, serving food and rattling buckets. i took my a7rii and sigma 35mm - as well as my trusty x70.

took this shot just outside brixton tube station. we had been asked to do some bucket chugging. it didn't go well. many of the locals not feeling the community spirit lets say.

That's a cracker mate. Great processing.
thanks David.

just got the black x70 from the refurb store yesterday. the good people of fuji had failed to put a battery in the box. luckily i had a spare at home. i did previously have the silver version but really prefer the black one (which is odd as i prefer the silver x100's over the black..).

Yes, I've seen a few like this on their website - it doesn't give me any confidence to buy from them. However, if you look on LCE's website, the photos there show no detail at all and their descriptions seem to vary widely - bit of a minefield really.

I am disappointed with MPB though - I thought that they would have had more 'offers' on Black Friday but the only Fuji reduced was a scruffy XT-10 and the reduction was a mere 10%. I was going to buy something and waited to Friday but was so miffed that I decided to keep my money.
Hi all, new to TP - I've been on the serious compacts & Fujxspot sites for a few years. I'd echo that experience with MPB. I bought an X100 from them a couple of years back, and it was very badly scratched, nothing like the photos. Whereas the one I then bought from CameraJungle was absolutely mint and matched the photos.

Very jealous! I spent a great month in Lanzarote winter 2015/16, would go back like a shot but we have a dog now... Anyway I love the December Dusk photo, lovely colours and composition. The second is my fave of the two.. I must say the X70 is starting to appeal to me and may replace the LX100.

Hi. Quick question which filters are you using. I have just got my X70 and the WCL for landscape only and pairing it with my F

I have got one it's very bright and useful in bright light. It also looks cool. The only downside is that you can't turn off the screen when you attach it.
