"Well done Nikon Intl.."

Just buy this, you will not regret it. So i bought this kit under a month ago and I'm in love with it. I can see using this for years before I would feel the need to upgrade. Got the bundle at a great price also. But that's what this entry level camera is all about.

"One last thing."

The body is well balanced when using the large Art series of lenses. Best price, fast delivery and good support in case something goes wrong. Camera, batteries and memory cards all top notch. But, others have covered its capabilities far better than I can. The colors of course are very good as expected, and here is a surprise.

Fujifilm X-T20 XC16-50mmF3.5-5.6 OISII Kit Black First Impressions

"Great clarity."

Mid-afternoon typically required swapping in a charged battery. Personally, I preferred it to have a wider lens, say 28mm equivalent. During my search, I discovered that the Fujifilm X-T20 XC16-50mmF3.5-5.6 OISII Kit Black was about to be released. I bought this Nikon Intl. Digital Camera for a trip I'm taking abroad in February. After over 10,000 pictures, my Fujifilm X-T20 XC16-50mmF3.5-5.6 OISII Kit Black operates perfectly in every aspect.

Fujifilm X-T20 XC16-50mmF3.5-5.6 OISII Kit Black Final Thoughts

"It's a REAL camera."

I’m now wading through the manual before heading out to shoot photos. My old SX700 that was serviceable for years finally gave up and failed. Mid-afternoon typically required swapping in a charged battery. I like that while I am learning I can rely on the IA mode to take great shots for me. So glad I chose the Fujifilm X-T20 XC16-50mmF3.5-5.6 OISII Kit Black.
