The Fujifilm X-T50 is a long-awaited update to the likable X-T30 and its subsequent X-T30 II sequel, and it brings three huge advances that it’s hard to ignore: the news 40MP sensor, in-body stabilization and a dedicated external film simulation dial.

There’s no competition, right? But let’s slow down for a moment. At the time of writing, the ‘old’ X-T30 II is still on sale, it uses the same highly regarded 26.1MP X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor found in the current X-S20 model, it has the same compact body shape as the X-T50 and it costs a LOT less to buy new.
