One thing I'm tiring of is the large bulky heavy cameras & glass that I use. And I mostly prefer wider angles. So it just seems like they have the system & glass that I'm interested in (Fuji that is), without the silly costs of Sony right now. But, I think my main concern is with the EVF's quality and latency. If and when I add a 2nd Fuji to my kit, that is full time EVF, it basically has to be as lag free as possible. I don't mind a little lag when swinging the camera massive angles, as it will never be used for that, but mostly just a decently fluid experience for still photography with minor movement (nothing faster than general walking; normal activity, etc). My X100S is so laggy when I use the EVF that it makes me feel like I'm looking at some tech that is not from 2013 or later. I knew that would be the case, but it just makes me really concerned for my next body in the future should I continue this pathway. For very shallow depth of field and portrait stuff in general, I will be much more concerned with EVF and latency.
Overall, if things go this way, I'm considering a body of some kind with really good EVF performance, and then considering trading out my 17-40L, 135L and 35F2IS with a Fuji equivalent of 10-24, 56 F1.2 and leave it at that, but maybe a 23 F1.4 (maybe). I don't really care for much else at this time. So full depth of field with the 10-24, and really shallow at F1.2. So I will want an EVF that can actually perform well without seeming like a latency mess, especially on a subject that is even slightly moving.
every now and then I think I want a 5d4.. well I do want one .. remembering the images I got with 5d3 and 24-70 2.8 mkii ..
but then I also remember how I rarely bought the camera out because of its size and weight ..
Sony's A7r 3 has me very impressed , so much so that I've actually preordered the a7r3... although i'm not actually sure i'm going through with it... they actually fixed most of the reasons I left (usability ) , added joystick , dual card slots , Improved AF etc.. I wont lie , I do miss the DR of the sony sensor ..
but , when I start doing the math .. body $3200 , 16-35 f4 $1200 , 55 f1.8 $900 , 90mm f2.8 $1100.. (that's the kit I had before except with a sony a7sii not 7r3 of course and its what i'd want again. (more or less)
Yeah , sony isn't cheap .. and the lenses I listed aren't even their "G master" top tier glass .. that being said they haven't made a dud lately ,, but still yeah pretty pricey
I'm still new to Fuji as well.. but
So far I've been pretty impressed with Fuji Glass .. seems fairly priced and Good quality ..
who knows I may go through with the a7r3.. but i'm going to try to work some magic (over time at work ) to keep the Fuji..
it took me a bit to adjust to it , the Raf files .. and just the camera .. but now , I occassianally pick up one of my canons and they feel incomplete... I love my dials !!
at the begingig I didn't use them , or I tried to setup my camera to feel like what I had before..but little by little I woke up and realized how much easier it is to use the dials
if anything is being sold off it will be the rest of my canon gear (80d / t4i and ef 50 and some lower end efs glass )as its basically collecting dust. it does come out about twice a month for some video but ..
Its become all about the EVF for me ...the WYSIWYG experience !
histograms, peaking etc... at this point I don't think I want to go back to traditional OVF's
