Outstanding work. Makes me wonder why even a pro would carry heavy rigs sometimes.

there are some differences in the images.... and as i said before, the focus is on point here, but at 1/4000th of a shutter... eh... I'm not excited about that. i love shooting in direct sunlight and shooting wide open..... but otherwise, this little camera is awesome!

Nice shots David, but remember, in the heady days of film a max shutter speed of 1/1000th was normal, yet we still managed to shoot stuff at f/1.8 in direct full sunlight with ISO 100 stock - we just used ND filters on the lens - nowt wrong with doing that now.
A shutter speed of 1/4000 is hardly a limitation unless you want to freeze Superman in mid-flight, your subjects aren't moving fast, you just have "too much light" so give the camera some sun-shades :lol:

Few shots yesterday over at Waitangi in Hawkes Bay ... the area is very popular for fishing, but unfortunately people also use as a dumping ground for garden rubbish. It's hoped the new development will encourage people to take pride in the area, and look after it.

This area based on a compass, really need a higher vantage point. The carvings are by hand, and many more will be added over time, and landscaping as well.

They were catching a few fish - these guys had snapper, which is a very popular table fish here; trevally, which I know nought about; and kahawai, which lots of people call rubbish, but I enjoy it when fresh.

So I am wondering if anyone has experience with this camera vs. the Fuji system, and how it compares IQ wise. I like the chance to use my existing canon lenses without having to break the bank on a new system. Of course, realizing we are all photographers on this site and that typically only WE can tell the difference between the camera quality between bodies/systems. :-D

Although I have no personal use experience of Fuji, a good friend of mine has just swapped all of his Canon gear (2x 5DmkII etc.) for 2x XT1 along with some native lenses, simply for a weight decrease. The main thing I notice with what he has (Fuji XT1) is the faster native glass vs the relatively slow native EF-M offerings I have for my M. In terms of IQ I can see no discernible difference, but we have never been in the same place taking the same shot at the same time to give a 100% direct comparison, I only go by his images I have seen of familiar local landmarks that I too have photographed.
Like you I have a supply of EF glass, and I like the flexibility the M system gives to use this over jumping manufacturers, so I am seriously considering an M5 as a first choice replacement for my aging M. For me, ergonomics, familiarity of menu systems, and the ability to use existing glass far outweigh any minor differences you might conceivably see in IQ. Quality glass will make a far greater effect to IQ than a different manufacturer‘s sensor of the same size in my experience.
If you don’t already have any M series stuff then you may see the balance differently, although native Fuji glass isn’t cheap by any means vs EF-M glass, so that needs to be added into your equation.

Ive had the Fuji XT1 and i Own the Canon M5....

the Fuji lenses are KING of the system, the body was great... canon is more plastic like..... i would never swap out my DSLR's for mirrorkless JUST yet.... but, being that i'm canon and have over 10K worth of canon lenses the M5 is an easy pick for me... but both are great cameras....

Here are samples from both camera that i took:

Fuji Xt1

Canon M5
https://flic.kr/s/aHsk​S2aQhb (external link)

not hating on either camera.... but Fuji had some issues i hated, and the canon has some issues i dislike..... but, i know how to use the tool (a camera is just a tool) so i just had to work around the shortcomings.

Small, fast sharp lens were a factor for me. Canon still aren't taking mirrorless seriously as its lens line-up shows. F2 is my slowest lens in my Fuji set up, which is the fastest M lens. Yes you can adapt, but then the system gets big and heavy. I almost bought Sony, I visited my brother in law last night, he has an A7s, a 24-70GM and a 85/1.4GM and those lens are HUGE on the body, HUGE.
To take a bag out containing 2 bodies and 3 lens with virtually no weight was amazing for me, I can take it everywhere because it has no impact on my lifestyle. Many people ditched their Canon FF's for Fuji so IQ is close.
Oh, and the lens are quite reasonable too, especially during cashback offers.
