Good day....opinions sought regarding both of these cameras. Im looking for the best choice for landscape and macro. Perhaps static birds with some capability for BIF. I am coming from Canon DSLR systems. Looking for ease of use as well as the best IQ, DR and low light. Thank you....

Tough call.

I would argue that instead of looking at the bodies to compare too much, compare the lenses more. Fuji doesn't really have a fleshed out line of lenses in the telephoto range beyond 200mm. They have a single 100-400. That's it. So unless you're looking to only do close range, short lenses for birds as you mentioned, Fuji doesn't have a lot of options. Sony has more options in the long lens range, including 3rd party native mount lenses from Tamron, etc.

The T3's AF is pretty stellar, with great low light AF acquisition performance.

I don't think they're different enough in terms of overall image quality to really split hairs over.

The lens selection for your intended purposes and the menu/ergonomics and the AF differences will be probably more starkly different than IQ/DR.

Very best,

Both of those (and the 200/2) can take either a 1.4 or 2x TC too. I haven't done any BIF other than a few gulls, this one was with the XF16-55/2.8

Don't do macro at all so nothing helpful to add there, have done the odd landscape but that's not really my thing either but people like Andy Mumford might be worth watching on youtube.

I actually purchased a Fujifilm X-H1. I love this camera. I am very pleased with my decision. It does beautifully with my Canon lenses. Particularly and surprisingly, my 100-400mm mMkii. I use the Fringer adapter and am quite content with adapting lenses for the time being
