Does anyone of you out there have personal experience with Canon, Sony AND Fuji. I'd like to know how Fuji compares to the other two brands (whose cameras I currently own) when it comes to color rendition. I've always loved Canon's colors (even though skin tones can be a bit reddish at times), whereas Sony on the hand gives me a lot of trouble (white balance never seems to be accurate and raw files often have an annoying greenish hue). Then again, I like Sony for the portable size (I don't own the larger GM lenses and I'm not going to go for them) and general image quality (other than color).
I know Fuji has been praised for its colors. But I've seen some conflicting tests and statements (like the one over here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FRQpueEvb-U
So, I'm curious to anyone's personal empirical experience.
I've owned all three, and in the order you listed, I'm now fully committed to a Fuji system
I agree with the observations you made. I think Canon and Fuji are both awesome in terms of color rendition, but the Fuji generally wins out for it's almost always spot on AWB and the ease of changing between the different film simulations (even in RAW conversion) to get the color palate you like for a particular shot.
My a7S was a mixed bag, sometimes it would nail the white balance or I could tweak it in post and get great colors from it, other times (and more often it seemed) I would spend 5x longer on each shot just trying to get the greens and magentas to balance properly.
I decided to dive fully into Fuji when I started bringing my X-E2 + 1 or 2 lenses (usually one) AND my a7S and a couple of lenses with me on trips and found that the a7S just stayed in the bag almost entirely.
