The new Fujifilm X-T5 mirrorless camera offers some of the company's most advanced features and capabilities, all in the popular and beloved X-T style body. This excellent video review takes a look at the camera and the sort of performance and image quality you can expect from it in usage.

I've had every Fujifilm X series camera, including the X-T5. There definitely a boost in resolution, but it's overshadowed by how poor the images look straight out of camera. I find that the files from every previous camera looks much nicer without doing any post processing. The X-T5 requires quite a bit more sharpening and contrast to reach acceptable levels. Colors are also different. I'm not sure this is due to the new processor and sensor combination, or Photoshops ability to properly render RAW files from the new X-Trans sensor. Hopefully someone with Capture One or some other software can chime in on this.

Roger I’ve been having about the opposite experience.. upgrading from the XT3 to the 5 has been a fantastic experience across the board. SOOC jpeg results, in particular, are better than ever for me. I’m having no IQ issues with RAW files either, but I also use Capture One so I can’t comment on Photoshop’s translation.
