Both of you are kinda right. 5D4 is my jack of all trades... actually I think the X-T2 is more. Because it fits the "travel" category which isn't as fitting for the larger camera. But then I haven't found a camera yet that can compare to the DPAF focusing during video that I find excellent.
XT-2 viewfinder probably not the best at low light but everything else with that camera screams user friendly dials and excellent ergonomics in such a small package. IQ is on par with a 5D3 and so far the XT20 vs 5D4 I'm very impressed with that little camera. This camera would fit best with a 3 axis gimbal and most likely this is the direction I'll be moving to.
For now... I'll buy a X-T2 and play w/ both systems. Meanwhile I'll still enjoy my 5D4. Nothing matches it in video...
...what I mean is nothing for my needs matches it. I don't care about DCI or UHD or Slog or Clog or whatever. I just want to video my family with high quality lenses, nice sharpness and excellent dynamic range and I want it in an all in one package.
I'm waiting on the rumored 8-16mm 2.8 wide angle and the 200/2 lens for the fuji system and then I'll have no reason to stay with Canon. They have everything else I desire. and by then Godox will have it's fuji trigger and my entire flash system will work fine.
I'm slowly buying Fuji used glass and waiting for the right deals. My wife is sold 100%... I just need a second body so I can use her lenses... I'll get the remaining stuff I'm lacking... I want the 90 and 16 and will get the 8mm FE from rokinon. Everything I own I can get in Fuji except for the 200/2. This lens keeps me to Canon for now.
man, I still remember the time you were shooting what, the 7D? You were convinced you had it all going for you
until canon makes ALL stm lenses, you will continue to have the USM motor noise issue.
all of sony lenses are STM to start with, so they work wonderful with video.
every single one of them is stabilized via IBIS, so a lot less need for a gimbal, but dont be dissuaded to use one, they're great to have. I came from the days of shooting weighted gimbals, the balance types, and they were great, but overkill for dad duties, ibis gets me there, and when I'm planted on a single spot, then I have a mono/tripod.
btw, fuji equivalent to 200/2 will be a fuji 135ish F2... you can adapt the sigma 135 and call it a day.
