well,, with my other cameras (canon , sony and Panasonic..

once you set your C1 , C2 .. they are on a dial , so just turn the dial , and hit record .. on sony , on canon turn the dial and flick the switch to video mode and record button is in the middle of the very same switch..

I do really like the dials on Fuji..

but i'm not really criticizing that ,, its really the not so quick transition between stills and video..
unlike with sony ,, with Fuji I have to be in video mode .. so I have to use the switch and turn from "S" to video mode ..
with canon and Panasonic this is the case as well although getting to video seems a bit easier ,, that is in my opinion of course.
i'm talking seconds if not a single second of difference in time..
not like a painfully long time , but certainly something I need to get used to in order to be quicker about it because I do like to do a lot of video with my cameras , especially on vacations or special occasions

I understand

If your old school you are going to love the dials I know I do. If your from the digital age I think the buttons are the way to go.
I watch my grand kids utilizing buttons and keys and I'm just blown away.

a bit noisy for iso3200.. I was slightly under ,, but risked blowing out the hightlights .. bracket shots would have worked well here.. but no tripod with me
either way liking the dynamic range on the xt2

just a minimal amount in LR.. to be honest noise reduction is an area where 'ive always struggled

Couldn't imagine what the cost would be for dedicated full frame lenses from Fuji if they ever produced one.

I guess the definition of a pro photographer is a person that makes their sole income off their photography. This day and age that's not easy. In fact now it's even harder than ever!! Also there are different types of photography so a portrait photographer demands almost as much as an event photographer. AF for a portrait photographer is not as demanding. Event's photographer may heavily rely more on better AF and possibly high iso performance in uncontrolled light environments they are thrown into. Style of work is also a large part of tool selection.

I actually think Fuji did a big mistake in entering the medium format world first. It would have been more logical for them to enter the full frame arena. More sensor surface area to achieve cleaner high iso images and still produce the well sought after Fuji "look".

Fuji has the infrastructure to manufacture camera's. Only difference is R&D tech to insert a full frame sensor into current technology in their aps-c bodies. Larger market for consumers and professionals to jump into a fuji system that is not as Niche as a medium format system.

A person can pick and choose their tools. Now I can appreciate ridiculous high iso files from my Canon and the Fuji system fills in other parts of my photographic world. On Fred Miranda you can see a good portion of Fuji users still totally relying on their mirrored systems for AF and high iso. There are others that are fully dedicated to Fuji but a good portion of them are not wedding events photographers.

If Fuji jumped into the Full frame world they would gain a huge following IMO. Clean high iso images for more demanding photogs would appreciate added performance.

More and more I use my Canon 5dmk4 I am appreciating the blazing fast AF speed and extremely clean high iso images and prime lens images from the zoom lenses I own. End product can easily justify carrying heavier gear for me personally. However I still grab my X-t2 equally as much as it is such a great performer.

If I was a portrait photographer I think my main staple would be 56mm and 90mm. I'd fill in other lenses to satisfy other needs.

Everyone has specific application with their tools on hand......

Fuji have said the they perceive the difference between their cameras use of an APS-C sensor and a camera with a full frame sensor is negligible & there is little point in producing a camera so close in sensor size. That is why they opted into Medium Format territory while continuing to improve their X series cameras with feedback from the community. When you consider their aim for the price point and quality of the GFX both in build and, of course, the image quality of that much larger sensor, you can see why they didn't bother in developing a Full Frame system that would give only a marginal improvement in some areas.

If you look through your EXIF data to see just how many shot are at very high ISO I think most people would not be above 12800 for the most of it. I know most of mine are on the other end of things even at events. Yes there are times when I need to shoot 12800 buy the Fuji does OK there, nice film looking grain noise as opposed to the awful colour noise that I was use to in my pervious system.

A couple of 12800ISO images [top one is untouched raw]
