Googled for a review and got...
'From its sluggish autofocus and slower burst modes to its slightly bulky body and 4K video that shoots at just 15 fps, it's a camera that just doesn't make the grade. Save yourself some time and pick up the Sony a6000 or one of our other better-rated mirrorless cameras instead.'

There are also other reviewers who like the camera. 15 reviews on amazon with 4 1/2 stars as the average so...
Great, great price.

(But it does feel like a low-end camera. X-E series is much nicer if you want a Fuji entry point)
I'm looking on Jessops and it's saying the XC50-230 lens is £309 alone? Great price if that's for everything.

Sony mentioned in the first comment on a deal with two lenses and a body that is more than capable of producing nice images.

399 is a nice price for this kit.

No wonder they're going bankrupt. A new lens of that type is around £110 on ebay.

20 years ago, people had no choice to pay over the top store prices, now they have a choice. That is why shops can no longer continue trading as they once did.
You can grab a refurbished X-T20 from the Fujifilm store with one XC lens for about the same price. Condition I got mine in was practically new.

Jessops is overpriced on everything... As much as I would like to give them my business, its just way cheaper online.
Slow/poor autofocus is a killer fail - you will just stop using the camera.

Poor or no 4k vid is not a dealbreaker at the moment, while most watch soaps at 480 or 720.

Thanks, it looks a great camera but from what I've found is the viewfinder doesn't open up fully or to the side and tha's ideally what I'm looking for. any others at this sort of price which does that please?

The screen does flip right up for selfies or vlogging, the only other aps-c camera like this at this price point is the Sony a5100 only £279 for a grade A Sony Refurbished one.

Does it? Not seen any video or photos to show that. A couple of reviews, people say it's not a good vlogging camera because of it not flipping up.

Cheers for the advice on the Sony

Didn't find the AF a problem at all with this entry level camera.
His least favourite fuji lens.
I was just saying in general as I don't have this camera.
Unfortunately many reviewers have gift/loan equipment and don't want to rock the boat

The guy belowI returned his Fuji because of the auto focus and auto white balance issues
Down to £349 now. Feels like a crazy deal when you include the extra lens. Trying to convince myself there's a catch but you surely can't get anywhere near the quality and value at this price.
