    I have been shooting Nikon SLRs for 35 years, and always bring a backpack of gear on trips and holidays. Now I felt for something lighter, and had finally decided on X-T1. But after getting a preorder discount on the X-T20 I settled for that, even when I hadn’t any chance to try it first. I quickly got a Samyang 12mm/2, Fujinon 23/2, 50/2 and 16-50. I managed to do a quick comparison against my Nikons, the old D700 it was meant to replace, and my D750. But I quickly realized it was more a match for my D750, so I decided to go on a 3 day trip to Prague with my wife with Fuji only, leaving all my Nikon gear for the first time in decades. Well, I didn’t miss my heavy SLR once!! I rather thought about all the situations I got shots I couldn’t if I had my SLR. We went to many churches, where photos weren’t even allowed, but the Fuji was so small and totally quiet, so it was no problem to get nice shots. Also it felt much easier to take street photos with a smaller camera.
    Camera with 4 lenses, including a Gorillapod, filters, batteries etc. fitted inside a small Lowepro backpack, with opening in the back only. Very convenient and secure. And less than 2kg!
    It was such a joy and inspiration to have such a light camera, and I could fit it everywhere! Easy to squeeze through narrow iron gates and on crowded balconies on the towers, i could even use my tiny Gorillapod to make some nice night portraits. The new f2 WR lenses are brilliant! Very good fit on the X-T20.

    i’m most likely buying the x-t20, as my first ever “real” camera.
    what would be the number one recommendation for a “travel lens”?

      If you’re wanting just one lens for travel, I would recommend the 16-55 f/2.8 if you’re wanting a zoom lens. It’s the equivalent of 24-70 and you can shoot everything from landscapes to portraits with that zoom range. If you are wanting just one prime lens, the 23mm f/2 or 1.4 would be great choices for travel.
