I know you want it....I know you want it.......
I'm just rollin' with the Fuji masses and Sony masses (nod head, nod head with focused glazed eyes)...... lovin' it
As an observation Canon/Nikon, Fuji and Sony shooters have similarities as well as rift's between them. Canon and Nikon seldom butt heads anymore beating their chests about who's superior. Fuji's force is strong and romance the use of enjoyment in dials/tactile use and colour technology. Sony users just shoot away using the bodies more as tools in hand. Now if you can generalize any worst than I did...I'd love to hear it
The photography world has just been stimulated by Sony's new "basic" camera. Many Canon users are taking note due to adaptability. I certainly can see other camera manufacturers taking note in the performance/price ratio. X-h1 is 2449CDN while the A7iii is $2599 CDN. Similarities but entirely different performance.
Joking aside it's all about improvements. Fuji is not alone in putting more efforts in improving the camera system.
Who's been arguing over any brand's "superiority"? I think you're reading into things that just aren't there...
I've shot both systems, they're both great, but both very different. They're not really products aimed fully at the same audience, whereas Canon and Nikon's offerings clearly are. As I said before in another thread; you seem much more technology oriented than someone who enjoys the experience of capturing the photo as much as the photos themselves (which is perfectly fine, btw), so it sort of baffles me why you ended up with an X-T2 in the first place instead of the a6500 which is on paper, a much more feature rich camera (and my friend who recently upgraded to the a7Riii adores for what it's worth).
I don't think the photography world is anymore "stimulated" by the a7iii than it was by the a6500 or a7Rii (which were just as big a conversation piece in the tech communty when they released). It's a great option, but it's honestly not that surprising, Sony has been pushing the envelope that direction for years now, hopefully they'll finally make Canon and Nikon take notice. Fuji however, kind of serves a different audience imo. It's not about the latest and greatest features, it's about what makes the experience for the shooter more enjoyable... tactile controls, great color profiles SOOC, small and light bodies, lots of small and light prime lens options, etc.
If you want to compare Sony's "basic" a7 line camera to Fuji's "basic" line XF camera then the more fair comparison would be the X-T20 to the a7iii anyway. And yeah, the Sony definitely kicks it to the curb in specs, but it ought to for $1100 more. Value is a relative term.
