Fuji X-T10 Rumor Update, Smaller EVF & No Weather Sealing Confirmed

By Anthony Thurston on February 24th 2015

We first shared the latest Fuji rumor regarding the X-T10, a supposed X-T1 “Mini” that Fuji is going to release in the near future. At the time, we just had a name, and not much more than that. Today, some more details have been confirmed by trusted sources on this new camera.

According to the report over on Fuji Rumors, sources have confirmed that the X-T10 will indeed have a smaller EVF and will not have weather sealing like the X-T1. It is unclear what, if any, other subtractions will be made to get the price down to a level that makes the camera worth a look.

The key will be making the X-T10 powerful enough to compete, yet not quite as “pro” as the X-T1. I would like to think of it almost like the 6D to the 5D Mark III; in most respects, the 6D is every bit the camera that the 5D Mark III is, saveĀ a few small areas where the 5D Mark III has the advantage. Ideally, I would think the X-T10 would come in around the $800 price range. That gives space for the X-T1 to come down in price a little, while still keeping good distance between the two bodies.

Regardless, it will be fun to see what Fuji comes up with. I know I am curious about that new EVF. I love the EVF in the X-T1, but it is definitely lacking in some areas and I would love to see if Fuji addresses those in the X-T10.

What do you think about this X-T10? Where do you think it will fall in the market price wise? Leave a comment below and let us know what you think!

    I thought I was done looking at upgrading for the year, but this would definitely be on my list since I’m currently learning lighting and wifi would be so great right now when I do self portrait practice to confirm focus and I don’t need weather sealing cause even a regular camera can handle a bit of a drizzle and anything harder than that I’m finding shelter.

    That would be a great addition…

    Not sure if it will fail, but, a deal killer for me – “No Weather Seal”

    Typically, I would not need a camera to withstand the likes of an Olympic-size swimming pool or a trip to the dishwasher – but whatever standard seal necessary to protect it from elements / prolong it’s life…

    What is in a manufacture’s head / thinking to come up with the idea that they would NOT want to weather seal a device like that, pro or not… If it’s cost savings, I would be fully prepared to spend more if that were the case…

      Well, in this case, as you mentioned, it is for cost savings. Your camera would be the X-T1, but this is meant for people who want an X-T1 on the cheap, and in this case that means no weather sealing.
