I kinda get where you're coming from and it puzzles me too.
I am very tempted by the X-T20 with it's form factor and pricing, but I find Fuji face/skin tones to be either too saturated, waxy, or it looks as though the people were drinking and their faces have a shade of pink. For example, in the Fuji Guy's run down video of the X-T20, Billy has a really pink blush. When I look through the other X-T2 videos and the different colour profiles and even for Pro Neg and Classic Chrome, they kind of remind me of the colours from the videos I get from my old Nikon D3100. Not having internal log/flat from the get go is kinda weird. Even Nikon's newest second-last tier APSC camera D5600 also has the flat profile.
