No reason to leave, especially when the AMASS site goes live. Having used Canon and now Fujifilm what do you like better, what do you miss and most important how have your photos improved?

Good for you. I still need DSLRs, not just fancy P&S.
But my wife is in opposite. She can't handle Canon DSLRs and using old advanced 5MP FujiFilm P&S.

the X100 series camera is definitely the 'desert island' type of camera.
i honestly can do most of my photography with my X100

also, 'good bye' threads is a rule on potn. so you gotta make it up by staying and flooding the Fuji part of the forum with your inputs and photos :p

As much as the Fuji X100 is adored, and Im sure its an amazing camera, I just cant spend money on a camera with a fixed lens. No matter how good it is. Just feel so constrained and restricted with what I can do. I mean this for $1000+ cameras.

You clearly don't understand what the X100 line of cameras are...

I get what you mean, but the fixed lens allows you to have a leaf shutter, excellent optics, and a tiny size, for many people that's all you need ;)

Good luck with that. Small Excellent lenses from Fujifilm and beating Canon as the king of high iso (for crop) and skin tones. You'll love it.

Fixed it for you ;)

Seriously though for those of you who doubt it, pick one up for a month and I'd bet many of you would change your mind.

I'm using Sony now and still post. Just create a Fuji thread if there isn't one. I'm pretty sure there is as many I know on this forum shoot Fuji.

Canon King of high ISO? I take it you have never used a Nikon Df or Sony A7s? Those are the kings of High ISO. Canon can't touch them not even with the 1Dx.

Be careful bringing the truth into these arguments... :lol:

Honestly though, the difference between the 5D3, 6D, 1DX, D750, Df, D4s or a7S are all pretty much as near as makes no difference at ISO12800 imo. The 1DX, Df, D4s and a7S definitely have the edge beyond that though, but again, I think they're all very close to each other at those crazy high ISO's.

Enjoy! My Fuji (XT-1 + x100s) phase lasted ~3 months. I couldn't do APS-C full time. Ended up back with a Canon, but with an A7R + Ricoh GR in tow. :) It was a fun experiment, and I think mirrorless cameras make a great 2nd body / setup, but the AF performance isn't there yet for my needs.
