Conclusion from DPReview:

The Fujifilm X-T20 is a beautifully designed mirrorless camera that is a pleasure to use. It offers numerous direct controls, a high resolution EVF, snappy performance and excellent image quality. The X-T20′s continuous AF system can struggle in low light, and subject tracking is inconsistent. 4K video quality isn’t the greatest, and capture controls are limited. Despite that, the X-T20 is a first-rate mirrorless camera and a great value, to boot.
