The long-awaited Fujifilm X-T2 finally made its debut last week, bringing with it a completely revamped set of specs compared with its predecessor, the X-T1. One of the highlights of the new compact shooter is its 4K video support -- a first for Fujifilm's X-Series line of digital cameras. But there's more to like here beyond the UHD (3,840 x 2,160) recording. Inside, the mirrorless X-T2 packs a 24.3-megapixel (APS-C) X-Trans CMOS III sensor, the same one found on the flagship X-Pro2. That's complemented by the X-Processor Pro imaging chip, which the manufacturer says uses enhanced algorithms to help produce its most accurate autofocus system yet.

The X-T2's AF is fast and precise, especially if you're coming from an X-T1 or, dare we say it, even an X-Pro2. So far, I haven't come across any subjects, still or moving, the camera couldn't handle. That said, I won't make any final judgements until I've tested it in low-light conditions and more challenging scenarios than a day out in New York City. Along with our review unit, Fujifilm sent an XF10-24mm Fujinon lens with optical image stabilization, which is the only glass we've been using on the X-T2.

Stay tuned though, as we'll have a more in-depth story before the X-T2 hits stores in August. For now, here are some photos taken with Fujifilm's latest mirrorless shooter.

Edgar's also deeply in love with tacos, sneakers and FIFA, in no particular order. He lives in New York City with his better half.
