Totally amazed by the ease of use, light weight and capabilities of this little Fuji. It shoots side-by-side with my Canon 7D Mk II and, except for the Fuji colors (which some prefer and some don't), it holds its own in almost all situations.

Was warned about low-light focus hunting, but after shooting 8 concerts (including the Temptations, 4 Tops, Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton), I had just as high a rate of keepers as with the Canon gear.

On the down-side: the body is small enough, that with a good grip attached, putting a large prime or zoom on it really cramps your fingers and is uncomfortable for a person with medium-to-large hands. And of course, being so small, it eats batteries....300 shots is doing well - and that's with turning the camera off between shots.

(Allowing it to go to sleep wasn't an option as it drained the battery almost as fast in that condition as it would if I was shooting the entire time).

Have had dedicated Nikon and Canon shooters carry it for a day and be amazed by what they get. But would again note, if a shooter has large hands, the X-T1 would be a much better fit.

A great little camera - and hte 18-55 "kit" lens is as good a lens as one you would purchase separately.

I'll have to say adding a 3rd party overseas manufactured aluminum hand grip has changed the ergonomics of this camera immensely. I have average sized hands and the grip made a huge difference. I also put a similar grip on my X-E2 as well. I did not feel the need to buy the X-T1 that produces identical image quality but it's weather proof, larger evf and additional dials.

I will say my Canon gear is till my go to system for serious gigs but the fuji is really impressive!
