really tempted to sell off my entire Canon gear and then I would upgrade to the xt2, add the 50 f2, 90f2, 100-400 and 50-140
a fuji kit of an XT2
18-55
35f2
50f2
90f2
55-200
50-140
100-400
that seems like a pretty solid kit

I would honestly say hold out and wait for the Xt3. It should have better AF and new sensor. You will get more creative images with different lenses with your current X-t1.

I've always suggested buying the best in your budget. I'd take f/1.2 or f/1.4 render for prime lenses. However if you "need" faster AF then you have to go new gen f/2 primes.

Is there a reason to believe a Fuji xt3 will be released soon? , hasn't it only been out for about 2 years?


i'm not entirely sure what i would do in this situation to be honest.. but i wouldn't choose a lens over a body purely based on waiting on the next gen body unless there is a strong reason to believe its coming out soon

The 55-200 is nice light tele.
I did this once before years ago. Sold my 7D 135L and all. Bought a6000 when it came out. 30days later got rid of it and went back. But thing is Sony had pretty much zero decent long lenses and had very limited selection to begin with. I am just nervous lol

Dare to buy an Sony A7iii? Higher iso performance than a Sony A7smk2 according to test results. Sony has decent lenses now and a cheap sigma adapter or slightly more expensive metabone is the bridge to Canon. You cannot really compare a 2014 camera to a newer sony, fuji etc.

I'm waiting for the Xh2 or X-t3. Hopefully Fuji listens and incorporates bigger battery, better AF algorithms and of course a new sensor.

Buy more lenses before a body. Unless you just "need" an xt2 or xh1.

I'd love a Sony a7III. I just do not like Sony lens prices for 70-200 and 100-400. Also I am doing this for size and weight savings

Life cycle is coming up for the X-t2. The X-t1 was introduced in December 2015. X-t2 was July 2016.

Maybe Fuji assumes the X-H1 will make loyal Fuji users to believe it's a bone to chew on and delay the X-t3?????

I choose lenses over body because lenses gives different perspective and render. The X-t1 has great IQ but less MP and lower performance in high iso and AF. However I guess it all depends on photographer's application. I did not hear anything about video........

Personal choice in what to buy. X-t2 in the US market or going dirt cheap. I wish I could say the same for the Canadian used market.

Trust me I hear ya........

I was tickled in the X-H1 for IBIS. I was going to buy another X-t2 for a stills camera then.......I discovered the A7iii on youtube LOL!!

Batis 25 f/2, 85 f/1.8 and even the 16-35 f/4 is not really that much bigger than my X-t2 with fuji glass. The difference is it's a Fuji X-H1 on serious steroids however it of course lacks Fuji render :P

We should start a drinking game out of his posts...

Take a drink when he...

-Mentions Fuji "render"
-Uses the words "blazing", "rock solid", or "silly" to describe AF
-Uses caps lock to emphasis his LOL
-Refers to what pros are using
-Talks about super clean ISO performance
-Gives random anecdotes he saw on YouTube
-Uses more than one exclamation point to emphasize his point
-Mentions "bounce flash technique"
-Talks about the importance of IBIS

I could go on, but I'd be drunk really quick as it is... :lol:

I say this with love Alan ;)

Throwing around idea. Should I upgrade to the xt2 or get the 90 f2 instead.

Shamless plug, if you need 90mm f2, let me know. Almost brand new, maybe 20 shots.

You forgot
no sun bursts with Fuji lenses.
1d series AF of 80d

Sorry couldn't resist. Don't take it any bad way. It is good that you finally got Sony A7III. It is awesome and I agree better than Fuji in most ways. Just wish Sony cameras felt better layout wise for me. Maybe someday.

I know you want it....I know you want it.......

I'm just rollin' with the Fuji masses and Sony masses (nod head, nod head with focused glazed eyes)...... lovin' it :)

As an observation Canon/Nikon, Fuji and Sony shooters have similarities as well as rift's between them. Canon and Nikon seldom butt heads anymore beating their chests about who's superior. Fuji's force is strong and romance the use of enjoyment in dials/tactile use and colour technology. Sony users just shoot away using the bodies more as tools in hand. Now if you can generalize any worst than I did...I'd love to hear it :)

The photography world has just been stimulated by Sony's new "basic" camera. Many Canon users are taking note due to adaptability. I certainly can see other camera manufacturers taking note in the performance/price ratio. X-h1 is 2449CDN while the A7iii is $2599 CDN. Similarities but entirely different performance.


Joking aside it's all about improvements. Fuji is not alone in putting more efforts in improving the camera system.

Who's been arguing over any brand's "superiority"? I think you're reading into things that just aren't there...

I've shot both systems, they're both great, but both very different. They're not really products aimed fully at the same audience, whereas Canon and Nikon's offerings clearly are. As I said before in another thread; you seem much more technology oriented than someone who enjoys the experience of capturing the photo as much as the photos themselves (which is perfectly fine, btw), so it sort of baffles me why you ended up with an X-T2 in the first place instead of the a6500 which is on paper, a much more feature rich camera (and my friend who recently upgraded to the a7Riii adores for what it's worth).

I don't think the photography world is anymore "stimulated" by the a7iii than it was by the a6500 or a7Rii (which were just as big a conversation piece in the tech communty when they released). It's a great option, but it's honestly not that surprising, Sony has been pushing the envelope that direction for years now, hopefully they'll finally make Canon and Nikon take notice. Fuji however, kind of serves a different audience imo. It's not about the latest and greatest features, it's about what makes the experience for the shooter more enjoyable... tactile controls, great color profiles SOOC, small and light bodies, lots of small and light prime lens options, etc.

If you want to compare Sony's "basic" a7 line camera to Fuji's "basic" line XF camera then the more fair comparison would be the X-T20 to the a7iii anyway. And yeah, the Sony definitely kicks it to the curb in specs, but it ought to for $1100 more. Value is a relative term.

Scouting a location with the 10-24/4 for a Fuji walk we're doing in Dublin next month, followed by coffee of course - Coffee and Fujis!

Took a couple of shots of the more interesting buildings in the area. 1/2 second handheld on the first one :eek:
