For all the things that have already said, I am mostly in agreement. I had (and still have) a 5d2 with a fait amount of L glass. I love that camera and the entire system. I had been using canon for about 10 years before i started using Fuji. For me it was a gradual transition. I needed a small cameral to put in my pocket for when i could not take my canon. I knew nothing og Fuji and bought an X10. For such a small P&S camera i was blown away by its quality and quite advanced ability to a photographer. It really was in a different class to the normal P&S. It was my entry and gateway drug. I soon started to read up and learn more about Fuji and it was not long before I bought he original X100. Wow wow wow. It was more than a surprise and gave my photography a whole new direction. The simplicity and purity was a real awakening after years of Canon a and loads of L lenses. The restriction was a freedom.The Xpro1 followed and I was even more convinced. The IQ was fantastic albeit it has its quirks. In between I used the XE1 as well and added more fuji glass. I go to the point where i was doing semi commercial shoots with both systems. Using the canon for primary and fuji as a backup. Finally after shooting a brochure for a property sale with both I found very clearly that the after using a full setup with the canon and all flash and lighting, followed by the Fuji with nothing more than a 14/2.8 and hotshoe flash, and no real setup, the fuji shots were the majority of those used i the final brochure. I later bought into the XT1. I am 100% convinced that for what i shoot there is nothing lost with the XT1. The AF and software has progressed to the point that they are really not limiting, but the strength really is the fuji glass. Where they lagged in the bodies, they truly excelled in the glass. I my opinion the fuji glass is absolutely outstanding and is reason enough for me to base my usage mainly on Fuji. The bodies will continue to evolve but the glass will always still work. I travel a lot and the beauty of having the XT1 thrown in a bag with 3 lenses that weigh less than 1/2 my canon setup and still provide equal or better images is pure delight. Even with the “kit” 18-55 it is a fantastic lens. I was really a prime shooter but picked it up as a basic travel lens. Again Wow. I am reluctant to compare it to the the 24-70L as it is very subjective, but my experience is very positive and I would dare say it is a better lens despite its 2.8-4 aperture. The IS is really well implemented and IQ nothing short of fantastic for a zoom. Finally for me the way Fuji handles DR is more advanced than the canon and this is a real big plus. I was a very late adherent to the EVF game and staunch critic, but honestly now the EVF on the XT1 has me converted. It is huge, clear, fast and wonderful in its usage. I still have and use my 5d2 and there are things like about it, but my passion has really been taken by the Fuji experience and I have given up all my old arguments about sensor size and L lenses. I am simply getting better images per percentage and enjoying my photography more with my Fuji than in the 15 years before. Those who still hold on to the idea that the fuji is still an amateur tool compared to the FF canon need to use the Fuji. It is small, neat, well built, inconspicuous and a system that is fast evolving and is excelling at what it does. I love it for everything i shoot. I challenge any critic to use the XT1 with the 23/1.4 and 14/2.8 for a week and see how they feel after.
