I hear ya, kids running about can test the measure of an AF system alright. The Fuji 16-55 F/2.8 WR is very fast, for that level of hyperactive swerving kids can manage, although a little heavy + $$$.

The same reason is holding me back too, the ISO. I'm fine for Fuji's ISO 6400 most of the time, I think it is very detailed and not so much colour noise, more of a grain feel. I did have a preproduction X-Pro2 for a little while & ISO 12800 was close to the now four year old 5D3, the joystick was familiar and nice to use, the shutter lighter to push and the speed on the whole felt faster, I'm not sure I'd really say it was very noticeably faster in AF to the X-T1 as I'd need to do a side by side test of something fast like kids in the playground. I also have an itch for an A7R-ii/A7S-ii for the higher ISO, just trying to decide if I really want to go down the long and winding Sony road or buy into more Fuji. Perhaps I'll swap out the 5D3 for one [Stabilised 135L, yes!] or sell it all and settle on Fujifilm.

To date all my clients have been really happy with the shots, including the ones for publication, no matter what camera they come from so I guess it is just my feelings holding me back, that and the dreamy 2/135L. When I look at the images after they have been exported out of lightroom, I honestly have a hard time telling what camera took what shot.

After I use my gear I feel very fortunate to possess such tools. I'm editing some photos at the moment I can't recall ever being so pleased with a crop sensor. I've post processed/edited my Canon Xti, 40d, 50d, 1dmk3 and 7d and the fuji files have some nice "substance" to the RAW file. Hard to describe but pushing/pulling the RAW file in LR I do like the Fuji file.

I'll look at the Xpro2 in due time but the less I think about it I think I'll concentrate on my "appreciation" of the X-T10 :P this will leave me more room for a 5d4 or another 5d3 for my no brainer "goto" body that always meets my comfort zone.

So I think I'm going to run dual systems for now. I just really enjoy using my X-T10 from a "fun" perspective (heck even the shutter sound is lovely to me), and I'm one of those people that just REALLY likes the JPEGs, especially Classic Chrome. I just can't seem to completely emulate that look when I pp raw files on my own.

That being said, there are times I still enjoy using a DSLR and getting that extra bit of low light performance from the full frame sensor.

I will just strip down each system to the very bare essentials just to keep G.A.S and costs in check, but yea for now both systems has a lot to offer my photography that I can't part with either :-D

I never read instruction/manuals LOL but you can have 3 different sounding shutters when you use E shutter. I discovered that last night while optimizing the settings.

Still waiting for my cheap bolt on grip for my X-T10. I'll be adding GT5000 grip tape to for a grippier feel. This will add some more comfort to my hands. Not tempted to buy an XT1 at this moment in time since the X-T10 has identical internals. willing to have patience for the newer body with new sensor.

I still cant believe I'm enjoying using the fuji. The image quality is so good in good light and even "semi" challenging low light. This is something I never experienced with my Micro43 gear even with fast M43 primes.

Put the 6D for sale. Going full Fuji now, well outside of my Panasonic LX100.

Interesting thread as I LOVE my 6D but am looking for a smaller lightweight alternative for an upcoming vacation. I have the X-E1 and 18-55, love the 18-55 but the X-E1 has zero chance at capturing my child. I was looking at getting an X-T10, but from what AlanU is saying, the XT10 might not fit my needs either.

In the end, I may just take the 6D. But like you say, I dont take the 6D out as much since its larger.

In the mirrorless realm, have you considered Sony A6000 series or Micro 4/3? Fuji's AF has gotten better, but those cameras are still faster, esp when tracking.

The X-E2/X-T10 is a huge step up from the X-E1, I've owned both. Seriously apples and oranges in terms of AF performance.

I sold my 1Ds, 60D and all lenses and went with x100s and xpro 1.
Sold the x100s and kept xpro 1 with 12mm, 35mm and a bunch of Pentax lenses.

Never looked back.

Does anyone see the day where we can use Canon lenses on a Fuji body and retain AF and aperture control? Sometime in the next year or two I'll upgrade my 60D, and having shot with a Fuji X10 in the past and loving the OOC jpgs and Fuji colours, I would love to get a new Fuji and retain my current lenses.

I would say this is quite unlikely, but someone with more technical knowledge might have a different opinion.

Doesn't such an adapter (Metabones) exist for Canon EF to Sony E and FE mounts?

I am guessing technically it can be done, it might be a market demand issue, as Fuji's market share even for mirrorless is still quite low.

I actually did previously own the A6000. Great body, probably the best value in this crazy world. Focus was great, I just hated Sony glass (well its price) and thought the pictures were a bit too 'digital' for me.

I just sold my X-E1. But ill be keeping an eye out in for future Fuji developments. If they ever create an X100 with a 50mm equivalent, I am back.

There are adapters for Canon lenses and Fuji X bodies, but they don't provide AF and aperture control. My understanding is it's not so much of a demand issue, but it would be prohibitively expensive to adapt Canon lenses to the way Fuji handles aperture control.
