The Fujifilm X70 is a smaller, less-expensive X100T-style camera. That means Fuji’s excellent 16MP APS-C X-Trans sensor, a fixed 28mm f/2.8 full-frame equivalent lens (vs. the 35mm FFEQ on the X100T) in a package that’s just a bit too large to fit in most pockets. The X70’s sensor has embedded phase-detection autofocus points that deliver excellent autofocus including face- and eye-detection.
The X70 has no viewfinder (although one can be fitted to the hotshoe), but is the first X-series camera to feature a tilting rear LCD that is also touch-sensitive. The camera doesn’t support 4K video (1080p max). It’s a worthy competitor to the X100T as well as the Sony RX100mkIII and street-popular Ricoh GR II.
