Looking at my shots back home, I was impressed by the consistency of the exposure system. I was using multi-zone metering with shutter- priority AE for the action work and aperture-priority mode for other scenes. By the way, the latest Lightroom/Photoshop is already compatible with Raws from the new camera so I processed the Raw pictures printed here in Lightroom. The only obvious exposure issues I experienced was with a sunlit white racing car and a dark car with a strong highlight and in both cases the shots were underexposed although the Rawswere recoverable. Summary You can’t judge a pre-production sample camera because firmware can change hugely (for the better) but so far so good. The X-T2 proved a highly capable camera and I handed it back with deep regret, but conscious that I know what I will be treating myself too this Christmas.
