cant stop lookin' at the Fuji cameras and lens lineup... images...

in particular the x-e2- looks like such a tight package with great lens options and more on the way!

I love my 6D- but dangit Fuji - your cameras look like sick fun!

ugh :/

Rent one for a weekend and see if you feel the same.

I rented the XE1 for a weekend after lusting after it for so long from all of the reviews I kept reading. I didn't want to drop that kind of money without even being able to see one in person. After that weekend, I was cured. Of course, that was the XE1, the XE2 is supposed to be better in basically every way (faster write time, faster focus, faster operating, ...). Renting one for a weekend will really help you know if you really should get one ;)

I know the feeling! I have had several of Fujis bridge models and if I were not so heavily invested in Canon mount gear I might be tempted.

I tried out an XE-1 for a week. And that was enough. Returned it and haven't considered a fuji since.

I went Fuji with hesitation thinking it was all flash and no fire. Started with the X100, now I have an X100s and X-Pro1. The X100s is just so light, so quiet, so fun with that leaf shutter and built-in ND filter. The X-Pro1 is a blast with adapted manual focus glass. I'm using everything from a cheap Fujian 35mm f/1.7 TV lens ($25) to expensive Leica glass and lots in between. Most recently picked up an m42 adapter and Helios 58mm 44-4 (would have preferred the 44-2) for the "swirly" bokeh effect.

Can't remember the lst time I had this much fun with my 5D2.

My opinion: 5D2 is great for work, Fuji is great for fun/play.

Brick- that might be a good idea!

Joe R- exactly! I have been looking around trying to figure out what the heck I can sell- not much left aside from what is in my sig :cool:

Getaway- HA! I saw that snap of your friend in the shop- who could blame you!
I would be excited too!

v35- sounds like you are hooked! these Fuji cameras just look like such fun.

I am also considering the x100s- head spinning... good stuff!

Indeed, I was blown away, not just by the IQ, but by how intuitive it is. And how amazing some of the features are, especially the minimum shutter-speed setting for Av mode, you can literally set it to whatever you want! Winning.

I'm excited about the rumor for the X-T1... if I like my Fuji enough and Metabones comes out with a speedbooster for EOS to XF I may consider selling the 6D... smaller is definitely better in my book.

Regarding minimum shutter speed: 1) you cannot set it to whatever you want and 2) it is a soft limit, meaning it will do its best to maintain that shutter speed but if you max out your ISO and the camera thinks you will underexpose at your set min. shutter speed then it will ignore that speed and go slower. Many X users at not happy with this and would like Fuji to make it a hard limit that can't be ignored.

Edit: Min. shutter speed on my X100s is 1/125 and my X-Pro1 is 1/500.

excited to see some reviews and images from the new xf10-24 also!

seems it would make a nice landscape lens + w/ the OIS it should make for some nice handheld shots as well...
