New buyer of this camera. This is my 3rd fuji camera. My use of this marvelous gear is limited. At age 76I have downgraded my status to "enthusiast". But the size is just right for me. Have not used all the features this camera offers, but well pleased. Would like to have the more expensive fuji lens, but my budget says no. Thank you Fuji.

Surprised they made a new X-H line , for some reason they had given up after X-H1 on the H series

I've owned this camera for a few months and it's my go to shooter . Image quality is excellent , controls and hold are comfortable , options in photo and video have very little compromise. Overall I would say this camera is a contender for camera of the year . Now that Fuji has opened up its lens mount to third parties ( Canon take note ) we also have a range of cheaper but well made lenses .

I am a74 year old enthusiast photographer who got his first camera at 14. I used cameras from Hasselblad to 4x5 view before going digital. I bought the Fuji XH-1 when first released and could not get rid of it fast enough (great concept but the execution was not ready for prime time IMHO). so I used Sony’s A7Riv for the next few years.. loved the images, hated the camera’s ergonomics and despised the menus. Now I have the XH-2 and could not be happier. Especially with the image stabilization... I now have serious balance problems, and I thought my days of shooting wildlife were coming to a close, but no! For example: this morning I shot 150 images of a great blue heron at 200ft. / 60meters with the Fuji 150-600 handheld, mostly static shots, a few BIF. All were shot at 600mm (900 equiv.) focal length and ISO 800, and my shutter speeds varied from 1/220 to 1/450. I only culled 2 due to focus and kept 50 for post processing.
Low light shots with fuji’s 50mm f 1.0 are so much fun! Pictures of outdoor Christmas lights late at night,in the rain, and I was even able to use back button focusing (ISO800, 1/200, f1.0).
I have some issues with noise at high ISO but can I add Topaz software to my PP workflow and get sharp, noise free output from shots taken at 800-12800+.
I find the XH-2 meets my wants and needs far better than the A7Riv. The only reason I stayed with Sony as long as I did was my fondness for their 200-600 tele, a great lens, really great, ‘though too heavy for my shaky old arms. To my surprise I find I much prefer the Fuji 150-600.
