    A few weeks with the X70 and I am in love! I love the colors, the dynamic range and the sharpness. The film simulations are brilliant.

    I love it so much that I am consideringselling my D7000+17-50mm 2.8+35mm 1.8+40mm 2.8 macro. The D7000 is very easy to use and focus but over 2000ISO the images are not as clean as the Fuji.

    I take family portraits, landscape, street.The X70 is fine but I miss the view finder.

    I almost bought a Xpro-1 then a XT-1 then a XT-10. The XT10 has the size advantage and has all the good bits of the XT1

    I don't need weather sealing so should I get a XT-10 or even go for a a XT-20?
    Plan to get a 18mm,27mm and possibly a 60mm and the 17-50.

    The concerns I have are the AF speed and the lack of a optical view finder and will I miss the quick snap snap of the DSLR

    Get the new XT-20 and you won't miss your D7000.

    I love my XT-2. Took pics at a soccer game yesterday, excellent focus acquisition. I own the 16, 23, 60 18-55, 55-200, and 100-400. OIS glass is excellent. 60 is my favorite. I would have got the xt20 but the evf and joystick are incredible. The 18-55 is not your typical kit lens, it is sharp and stable in low light. All their glass is incredible.

    Go for either the XT-20 or the XT-2 to get the latest focus system. The 27mm f2.8 and 35mm lenses are a great price now, and as mentioned the XF 18-55 is a great zoom lens.

    Another reason I skipped on the XT20 was my hards are huge and the vertical grip addition on the XT2 was perfect, plus it has a boost mode which makes the focus acquisition super fast. However, from what I read, the XT20 is fantastic.

    I have the XT1, XP1, XT2 and the XP2. The 2's are a significant upgrade to the 1's. Fujinon lenses are as sharp and better built than my Zeiss lenses.

    Thanks for the replies so far. Does the X Trans III lose some of the sharpness and definition that the X Trans II has? If it doesn't I'd be going with the T2/T20

    The 24mp sensor has much more detail than the 16mp sensor. The 24mp, per my eyes, has about a stop of less noise at elevated ISOs.

    Noise levels of the 24mp sensor @ 3200
    =
    16mp sensor noise levels at 1600

    24mp @ 6400 = 16mp @ 3200

    Unless you're printing large and/or shooting at extreme ISO constantly(who does?), then look at the 16mp Fuji cameras. Discounted now and true bargains.

    OP what did you get? I'm seriously considering the XT20 since I don't need the weatherproofing. Hard to find one available with the 18-55 2.8. If there was one I would order it now but seems to be on back order everywhere.

    Hey. I got the XT20 in the end. Got a good price for my Nikon kit and some cash back too.
    I now have the 18mm f2,35mm f2 and the 16-50 zoom. To be honest I don't see myself using the zoom or the 18mm. The 35 is perfect in every way and I rarely use any other.

    As for xt20 the images are stunning and the focus is super fast.

    Buy the 18-55 used, they usually have them over at mpb.com. Buy a new body.
