I live in both worlds and love carrying and using my X-E2 but the thing that keeps me in the Canon world is getting something in focus when it is moving and following it while shooting. Fuji C focus mode is nowhere near as good as on my Canon bodies and the viewfinder delay on burst mode are show stoppers for a lot of what I shoot. I would also need a 300mm f2.8.

Are things a lot better on the newer bodies?

Yes. Far better in AF-C.

Compare what I got up to 85mm to the Fuji and u start to see amazing weight savings.

As long as I keep shooting is my problem. I want to shoot Fuji more than canon right now.

This is how it begins ;)

The ergonomics, shooting style, and new tech is what moved me to Fuji.

Having the ISO, shutter and F stop in a tactile manner suits my shooting style. With a small prime and no grip the X-T2 is an amazing travel camera. Then I can put a grip on and shoot all day so the versatility is nice.

When I had my canon I was constantly lusting over full frame until I came to the realization that it's not a must have for better photos. And also fujis crop sensors were well beyond what I needed.

Every ones needs are different...

I bought an X-E1 to supplement my 6D and immediately liked it more than my 6D. I moved from the 6D to the a7 line (a7R, then a7S) because I figured that would fill both needs. Then I longed for another fuji and bought an X-E2... then realized my a7S was staying at home more and more often, so I finally said "screw it" and jumped fully into Fuji and haven't regretted it for a second.


Talley; don't fight the urge, resistance is futile!

One of us, one of us, one of us... ;) :lol:

My store is always so well stocked, don't know whether it's me or them that's lucky though.

Ordered a 16-55 as my G.a.s is at an all time high. :oops:

I wanted to build a prime lens kit but I was never a prime guy. Now I will essentially have three lenses in one. Although primes always trump zooms. Stupid Fuji


Fuji 16-55 is the closest to prime lens quality I have ever experienced in a zoom. I know this will be argued, but it's shaaaaaaaaaarrrpppp.

QUOTED IMAGE

I'd love to test a Fuji 16-55.

I'll have to say my 24-70L f/2.8mk2 is my Canon zoom lens that virtually produces prime lens quality. The 70-200 f/2.8IS mk2 is another zoom that produces prime lens quality.

I'm really looking forward to test a 16-55 one of these days. I'm just wanting the least amount of lenses for my Fuji system that meets my requirements for my style of shooting. I think a 56 f/1.2 and 50-140 will be the next two lenses that will complete my requirements. I'd love to own a 16-55 for versatility :)

To fill a gap I'm also considering a 35 f/2 and at the same time looking to buy a Canon 35 f/2IS as well :)

The 16-55 is one of those lenses that I just keep talking myself out of.

I love the small size and sharpness of the 18-55 but I like the little bit of extra width of 16mm. In theroy I could replace my 18-55mm and 16mm f1.4 with the 16-55. But that I read about how the 16-55 is not as sharp as the 16 at 16mm, and the 16-55 is quite a bit bigger then the 18-55.....blah, blah, blah. I just need to stop over thinking it, rent the damn 16-55, and see if should get it to replace the 18-55 and 16.

I have been on the fence about buying for a while as the kit lens is no slouch and the 2.8 isn't cheap.

This lens will be my jack of all trades for my headshot business. I plan to keep my Fuji setup minimal and not let gas take over lol. Down the line I plan to add a 90mm and rent the 50-140 when needed.

The 18-55 might be reserved as a back up and my go to lens for vacation. The size and quality of that lens is still very good.

The 16-55 cannot stand in for the capabilities of the 16/1.4. The question is, do you want those capabilities. Outstanding image quality (Fuji's best lens imo). Very close focus. F1.4.

This combination allows you to create wide angle images with items very close to the lens in the foreground, a broad vista of background and exceptional bokeh. There are not many lenses which can deliver anything close.

Balance this against a single lens which can cover arguably the most useful photographic range. I'm on an ultra wide kick, but ... almost every important image in the history of photography could be taken with the 16-55... Just sayin'. :)


C&C always welcomed...
On my images, of course, and on my words as well--as long as it's constructive :).

The 2 stop advantage, close focusing, minimal distortion, and sharpness in the corners are what keep me with the 16mm f1.4 for wide angle shooting. I could live without those two stops of light and close focusing but the sharpness and lack of distortion in the prime are the main hold outs for me. The only thing I don't like about the 16mm f1.4 is the coma.

In a perfect world I'd just own both. But I don't make enough to justify owning both so for now I just battle with myself on which one is actually better for me. Which for now is the prime......two days from now I might be back to thinking the zoom is....then two days after that back to the prime  :p

In the end I just tell me self that this is what I have, stop over thinking it, shut up and go shoot!

I have both & for a lot of what I shoot the zoom works, but there is something a bit nice about the 16/1.4 look. Both have a place in my bag and both get used. If I just had to have one lens and one camera I'd probably pick up an X100F as I really liked using the T for a few hours I had one
Luckily I have a choice :)

20 1.4 on FF looks better.... or at least this is what I want too. The 24 1.4 has a great look.
