As well as being compared against other mirrorless, the Fujifilm X-T2 is also often compared to pro DSLRs, boutiques and entry-level DSLRs. The Fujifilm X-T2's top rivals come from Fujifilm (such as the X-T3 and the X-T20) and Sony (such as the Alpha 7 II and the a7 II)

compared toMirrorless interchangeable-lens competitors

Generally, some of the advantages of the Fujifilm X-T2 compared to other mirrorless interchangeable-lens competitors include: it significantly larger viewfinder (0.76x vs 0.61x), has a weather sealed body, uses fast phase detection autofocus (phase detection vs hybrid detection), has slightly more focus points (325 vs 121) and is newer (july 2016 vs november 2014).

However, on average it doesn't have a touch screen, slightly fewer lenses available (58 lenses vs 92 lenses), doesn't have a built-in GPS and doesn't have a built-in flash.
