Thanks! I feel you on the GAS :lol:

It's funny, I now have a complete native kit for my X-E2 (12/2, 18/2, 27/2.8, 35/1.4, 18-55mm and 55-200mm) and only 2 lenses for my "main" camera, the a7S. I just use the Fuji so much more... I think it's gotten to the point now where really the X-E2 is my main camera and it makes me strongly consider selling off my a7S gear... but when it comes to low light, that thing is just so darn special! -?

Maybe you should just be okay with running 2 systems. Seems very common nowadays for photographers to run multiple systems. A friend of mine recently went all Micro 4/3, but he kept his 5Dc and 50mm 1.2 to use when he really wants that shallow DOF effect.

Maybe you can just keep that a7s with the superb 55mm for when you want to shoot in really low light.

Or maybe you can rent an X-Pro2 and see if the low-light capabilities are now adequate for your usage. If so, you could probably count on selling the Sony now or later when you get into the next-gen Fuji bodies.

For my use in low light the very odd shot at 20000 ISO, mostly 12800 so the 5D3 was OK there & with a bit of work OK at 20 to - just don't look to close. The Fuji's are good at 6400 and the X-PRO2 is good at 12800 [very good] I now there will be a little difference in measurements though.

I'd keep the Canon but for the finance issue & I'm looking forward to letting go and having one system to work with and edit with. I'm lucky to be in a small pool of photographers who share gear as needed, so if I need it I can usually borrow something for a shoot. Problem I have is I really like owning my own gear so one more thing to try to let go off.

I am currently just using both systems, but the a7S sees very little use compared to the X-E2 these days and I just feel like that money could be better used in other hobbies (I have an expensive list of those... :lol: ), but as I said, right now I still can't part with it since I do love it for those times I need it. If I could have it's sensor in the X-E2 body it would seriously be just about the perfect camera for my needs (but then I would need bigger lenses too -? ).

Yeah, I'm tempted to try out the X-Pro2, because if it really does give very good images (as good as the 5D3/6D) at ISO12,800 and somewhat useable images beyond that I'd be even more tempted to sell the Sony. I use the Sony for ISO50k and above sometimes though and for me the shots are still very useable (often comparable to the X-E2 @ a slightly pushed ISO6400), something my Fuji can't even come anywhere near.

In good light though, the Fuji absolutely delivers the goods :)

So I bought a new 55-200 and have been using it. I had to exchange my first copy due to a faulty IS system, but the 2nd one seems to be fine. I could write a long review, but my opinion can be summed up concisely: it's basically a big brother/sister to the 18-55 in every way possible. Beyond the obvious size and weight difference, the build quality seem similar. And the IQ is VERY similar. Quite sharp even wide open, a decent amount of microcontrast, good color rendition.

I agree fully :)

What was wrong with the IS system of your first copy? I got mine used, so if it has any IS issues I'll just have to live with them, but it seems fine :lol:

We walked 20 blocks to the boardwalk for these...

Lol, yeah, unfortunately we were 20 blocks from our hotel and I had nothing but my X-E2 and XF 18mm on me, neither of which I wanted to get wet. It didn't help that we were getting pelted by sand from the wind... I also had to chase my hat a block down the road when it blew off, I love my hat :lol:

Because it's a 4 year old bridge camera that was already somewhat obscure when it was new...

Most people on this forum still shoot with Canon (hence why this Fuji section doesn't even have any subforums) and the one's here who shoot Fuji pretty much exclusively shoot with the X-Trans camera lineup, most are using the X-T1 or one of the X-100 cameras.

Why is it so important to you that others use what you're using? If it works for you, great, why do you need others to use it as well in order to be happy with it? You might have better luck finding more users of the camera over at FM forums or one of the several Fuji specific forums on the web, I like to visit fujix-forums from time to time, but again, most of those guys shoot with the more enthusiast minded Fuji cameras as well.

Same answer I gave in your X-S1 thread:

I'm sorry to disappoint you, but I just don't have an X-S1. I don't really have use for a 2/3 inch sensor superzoom bridge camera.

Finally let go of my 5D Mark-iii today. Not missing it yet but have to replace it with another body either an X-PRO2 or X-T2 to sit alongside my X-T1 & X-E2. Thinking I'll wait for the T2 next month and put the change into some strobes and alike. So now just the Sigma 50 Art and the Canon 135L F/2 to sell.
