But again, you've convinced yourself of what you need, and that's all that matters.
well my post was quite lighthearted and I haven't really made my mind up. Or, rather I might have if canon had the lenses to go with the M series. Im not convinced by the IQ of those lenses and to fit the E lenses you need an adapter with kinda defeats the purpose of having a small camera

How much of this is gear lust and how much is actual necessity?
Find the system
, not body, that is the closest match to your needs and then go work on furthering your photography.
You can compare files all day long, but at the end of the day is the file of one camera vs another actually
going to make or break an image? Probably not...
necessity? It's a hobby not a job, necessity has nowt to do with it
Is one system going to make ofr break an image, good question, is that the reason people change systems or chose one over another in this day and age? I doubt it.
I never use canon jpgs, except to visualise on the LCD (I have it set to low contrast, high sharpening, mono wit sepia filter ) I always shoot RAW. However it would be nice, it would be convenient, to be able to use the OOC jpgs. The claims for Fuji are high in this regard but I have not yet found them to be up to te mark, still I only have an old M1.

The Canon mirrorless bodies are OK compared to the competition, but native lens selection is where they are really lacking IMO. .
thats what stopping me getting one. even the 35mmf2 IS would do me but not with a convertor attached, might as well get a zoom for that size. ( which I won't cos I don't think the IQ is there either )

But it is also quite hard to nail focus at f1.2 on 85L. No such issue with Fuji.
I end up using f2 on my 85L.
ain't that them truth! I LOVE the 85mk2 at f1.2 when you do nail the focus because the bokeh is exquisite , I don't know of any other lens that can render like it, BUT and it s very big but, it focusses so slow and misses so often it really is a trail to use. I used to cover myself wit other lenses (135, 70-200mk2) too when I used to do portraits, weddings etc)
Now I don't do those Im happy with an f4 lens TBH, though most are faster than that
