i also wanna upgrade my travel gear.

i do think the xt20 with 18-55 is a good combo for the price now
u get the wide for scenery, and the zoom end for portrait

alas i didnt get it cos i want something compact. Ricoh gr 3 might fit ur bill if u dont mind the lack of viewfinder.

Yea, viewfinder is a must for me too. That's why can't decide whether taking xt1 (bigger evf) or xt20 (smaller evf)

I think the biggest deal will be how much you value ruggedness and that little bit of weather sealing.

My gut will go for xt20 cause its much more current/feature packed but....

.... I do value that weather sealing feature. Even if its just that little bit....

For older lens, XT20 is significantly faster even for single point autofocus. Not to mention video.

XT1 on the other hand feels more balanced if you're going for heavier lens later. The larger EVF also better for manual focus.
