Leaning towards X-T20. Any thoughts?

    I have been saving my pennies, sold some old equipment and now thinking of buying a new X-T20. I like that it offers some of the benefits of the X-T2 but a a lower price. I like that the X20 has the tilting view screen that I can touch where I want to focus and fire the shutter.

    I believe that the X20 uses the same batteries as my X=T1 and uses the same X lenses that I have. Makes for easy sharing between the two camera bodies. But I want to be sure that this is the one for me. Maybe you know something I don't? Maybe you like the camera, maybe you don't?

    Can you share with me your thoughts ?

    Thanks

    Robert

    I have an X-T20 and love it. It is a bit smaller and lighter than the X-T2, it has the tilting touch screen that you mention and it is perfectly suited to your lenses and batteries from the X-T1. You will also appreciate the results you get from the 24 megapixel sensor.

    +1.
    But you should try the camera for yourself. I don’t personally use the touchscreen. I also own the X-T2 but reach for the X-T20 about 90% of the time because of its compact size. The exception is when I’m using the long lenses and shooting action-y things.

    Is there a grip for the X-T20? I have big hands. I have a power grip for my X-T1 and it works really well for me.

    I love my X-T20. The only thing I don't like about it is the touch screen focus. Turned it off.

    Lots of grips, but none that are powered like the vertical grips for X-T1 or X-T2. The ones that fit the X-T10 will also fit the 20.

    Yes, the same batteries : NP-W126S or the older NP-W126.
    The Mount is the same X Mount for XF lenses.

    No power grip, but the Hand Grip MHG-X10 (Compatibility FUJIFILM X-T20 / X-T10)

    It's seems there is also this one :

    Other than the size and the touch screen, the only major issue would be if you're looking to do much video. While the X-T2's 4K is cropped, the X-T20's is full sensor, but with pixel binning. This has the effect of making the latter camera's 4K slightly less sharp and more prone to moire and aliasing.

    If you have big hands, try before you buy. I have small hands, but find the dials and buttons a bit problematic
    (keep hitting them inadvertently and thus changing settings).

    If the touchscreen is for you, go for it. I switched mine off. The camera's image results are excellent.
