Looking to add a smaller camera to my kit for daily use when I don't feel like carrying around the 7D and want something fast and convenient to take a pic but with still have better IQ then my phone and was thinking about going with the Fuji x-m1. What are some thoughts/opinions on this camera? Would it be good for what I want?

I see Fuji ILCs as a true system camera. They pump out such great cameras and lenses that you really want to build out a decent system to take full advantage of what Fuji can do. If you have the budget and willingness to build out a secondary system, I think any Fuji (including the X-M1) would be great for what you are looking for.

If you don't want to build out a system and plan on using the Fuji with just one lens, an X30 or X100s/t might be a better choice. X100t has just been release, so you can get X100s on discount now.

With how invested in canon I am I really don't think I want to build a second system right now as that's more the reason I'm looking for a second camera is I want something I can just grab and go with but still get very high IQ from. The x100s I really like I just have to decide if I'll be ok with having a prime lens on what I'm looking for(and with spending that much). Would also like to see some reviews on the x30 but haven't come across much with actual images from it.

Well from what I've seen, if you are just going to get a camera and a "kit zoom" lens and nothing else, Fuji is the way to go because of the 18-55 f/2.8-4. I briefly had an X-E1 with that lens, terrific combo, but I sold it as I felt tempted to get more lenses and my wallet just couldn't deal with that. Hence why I like my X100s, I am not tempted to get more lenses.

That being said, the X-M1 you are looking at has the 16-50 as the kit lens. I believe it's a stop slower, though still seems very good for a kit lens.

Not sure if you can find X-E1s anymore, they were a good deal for a while as dealers looked to get rid of stock. X-E2 would be an option as well.

I didn't intend on building a second system when I bought my X-E1, but after seeing how liberating it is having such a small and light camera to go everywhere with, it fast became the more used system. It really is awesome to have a camera which when combined with a prime lens (or even the zoom really) weighs practically nothing and is super small.

I carry my Fuji most places, something I wouldn't do with my 6D, and I don't even have any big heavy L lenses for that camera, the Fuji is just that much lighter.

As of right now the main way I'm leaning is towards the x100s, like you I know if I get a camera with changeable lenses I'll end up wanting to expand my kit and that's not what I'm wanting this for and not something I went to venture into right now or can afford. I think my best bet will be to start looking for deals on the x100s.

Just be careful, even an X100s can be a gateway drug :D.

Especially with the TCL-X100 sitting there calling my name!

The XE-1 with 18-55 deal for $600 was the hardest thing I've had to pass up in a long time. Maybe that might fit your needs well. If it comes back at that price.

I paid $650 for mine, super happy with it and having owned it a while, would've paid more, I love it :cool:

Quick question, does the fuji x100s/x100t have the same sensor as the xt1?

What would be the most compact/ lightest X-mount lens outside of the 27mm pancake? Is it the 35mm 1.4?

I believe the 18mm f2 is, followed by the 35mm. The 18mm is pretty much the same size as the pancake, which is why it's next on my list :cool:

Here's my first couple of shots from Comicon in Baltimore. We went as Vietnam War era Avengers, I was Peter Parker, but sadly don't have any pictures of myself :(

We gave my friend a hard time before going to Comicon because we thought his costume looked colonial, like George Washington as Captain America (which we agreed was fitting anyway), then we found this :lol:

Would I be crazy to sell my Canon 6D and get an X-T1? I was tempted to consolidate my 6D and X100s by selling both and replacing with an X-T1. I think an X-T1, 18-55, and one of the primes (23 or 35) would suit most of my photographic needs.
