If so, how did it go? I'm very much in doubt between upgrading my A6000 to the A6300 or switch to Fuji. Main reason is quite simply the lack of better (zooms) for the APS-C system by Sony and their focus on FF.

I'm in the process of switching from Sony FF mirrorless to Fuji as my main system.

Fuji's ergonomics aren't for everyone, but if you like them, you'll love them and a Sony just won't feel right after using Fuji for a bit (my main reason for switching).

Fuji's lenses are also excellent and you have lots of choices, there are also lots of great used options out there.

I haven't sold my a7S yet, but I have no desire to pick it up now that I have an X-Pro2.


Fuji X-Pro2 // Fuji X-T1 // Fuji X-100T // XF 18mm f2 // XF 35mm f1.4 // XF 60mm f2.4 // Rokinon 12mm f2 // Rokinon 21mm f1.4 // XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 // XF 55-200mm f3.5-4.8 // Rokinon 85mm f1.4 // Zhonghi Lensturbo ii // Various adapted MF lenses

I once had sony a7 and now own fuji xt-1. In my opinion, I don't think Fuji has better selection on zoom lens compare to sony nowadays. One good thing about fuji though it has many choices in fixed focal and this was main reason for switching.

Fully agree... Like you I have both (and keeping them). Sony needs to do something about that awful menu system! Also, both need to have articulating, touchscreen-- even canon and nikon seems to have gotten on the bandwagon!
