Thom’s Review of the Fujifilm X-T1

Lenses for this camera

Note: an IR version of this camera was introduced on August 3, 2015 for a body price of US$1700. That version has no UV or IR filter cut to its spectral response, and is responsive to light from 380 to 1000nm. That version is otherwise identical to the original X-T1.
