I sold off all my Canon gear and am in the works to acquire a 1D body and eventually a long tele for wildlife/sports. I do not regret selling my Canon for the wide/standard focal lengths. Right now I'm using my XT1 with a 23 & 56mm, will eventually add the 10-24 and possible the 90(when its released). I'm not typically a Sony fan but that a7 and the option to use canon lenses is pretty nice.

Also if anyone is looking for a 18-55, I'm selling mine to help fund my 1D purchase. Asking $350 shipped and paypal fees covered. PM me if you are interested.

So I've read the entire thread - seen folks get excited about fuji (especially the xt1) then get disappointed with fuji. Sell your other kits and then go back to your other kits. :) And I am more confused than ever! I've sold almost all my Canon stuff - just have a 50D and a fisheye left, and thought I was set on the XT1. But I keep reading about the Olympus EM1. Common sense tells me that a larger sensor will always triumph, but the Olympus has a smaller sensor and still has great IQ. Help!

I shoot some landscape, but also love to shoot backyard wildlife. I love to shoot the moon and the stars, and I also shoot LOTs of macro, hand held in natural light. (Flowers, etc - no spiders. ::shiver::) I like to shoot in low light, and LOVED the high ISO capabilities of the 6D. Don't do hard core sports, so tracking not as big a deal ( but want to know I can trust the AF when I need it.) Want to be able to get good shots of the furkids inside the house and in the evening.

I've ruled out the Sonys because of the lack of lenses. Was going to try the XT1 with the 18-55 and the 55-200 to start. Would like more length if I can get it. But Fuji lacks in dedicated macro offerings. Oh - and I had the EOS M with the 22 and the 18-55 + adapter - sold it all because it was too freakin slow! Ok - now I'm rambling... Please give me some advice?

I've often seen this trend in other formats as well - Sony NEX, Micro 4/3, etc. People will switch completely into a new system, then end up abandoning it and coming back full circle. Part of the fun of this hobby, I think.

I'm a bit of a silly gearhead, so I've tried most of the newer systems outside of the 16mp Micro 4/3 sensors (I had an older 12mp OLY camera). Fuji X, Sony NEX, Canon, Nikon. My personal opinion is that the DSLR system is still the most complete and "all-around" system available. Lots of lens choices at all price levels, reliable and proven bodies, fast AF, OVF, etc. And full-frame has gotten fairly reasonable in price thanks to 6D.

Personally, I want the mirrorless market to consolidate a bit. I want a format to "win out". Ironically all the choices are paralyzing me and even if I'd WANT to go fully into mirrorless, all the choices just make it hard. So I'm on the sidelines for now.

If I were you I'd just stick to the DSLR system, and if you want something small/light, just get a 2nd camera that's a fixed lens - X100s, Ricoh GR, LX100, RX-100, something like that.

I think that's part of the nature of a forum. The people who'll post the most are those who have something they want to say, even if it's just venting. Of course the people who end up not liking their Fujis will come here too, and it's a good thing because otherwise all that there would be in this thread is glowing praise. Then again, those of us who are happy with their Fuji aren't going to reassert it every day, are we? :p

As for the E-M1, I've also heard great things about it but haven't got a chance to try it. I'm sure it's a great camera; try it out in a store, borrow one from a friend, rent one out for a few days. IQ's one thing, ergonimics are another. No point in having a great camera if you hate using it ;).

But Fuji lacks in dedicated macro offerings.

Isn't the 60 a macro lens? Personally I have a Raynox-250, but I don't do much macro anyway.

Along the lines of the logic:

Pick any two: Quality, speed, price...


Pick any five, or so:

Size
Image Quality
Sensor Size
MegaPixels
Lens Choice/Quality
AF
Soul
Future Support


Today, at least, you're not going to find one camera that offers it all.

I just sold my 6D this morning, keeping the Fuji for now ;)

I love the files from the Fuji, my only issue with them is in high ISO, but that's a crop sensor thing in general, the files look great in B&W at ISO6400, but in color they leave much to be desired. For that reason, I'm skipping the X-T1 and getting an a7S.

I'm sure you'd love the X-T1 coming from a 50D though.

That's the problem - I'm not really coming from the 50D. It's been sitting in my bag gathering dust - I went to the 5DII about 3 years ago, and then to the 6D almost 2 years ago. I had to sell the 6D a year ago, and since then I haven't been shooting much of anything. I've tried to be happy with the 50D, but the others spoiled me. :) And now I've sold all my lenses (24-105, 100L, 70-200 f4, 100-400, 300 f4) and so I really want to switch systems. I just can't decide which one to go with - the XT! or the OM1...

LOL - I know! Right now I'd pick quality and speed over price (except the price can't be crazy - I've got limited funds)

From your pick 5 list I want all 8! :) But size is important - I'm older and in worse shape, and I found lugging around the DSLR and big heavy lens was not working. The sensor size has me confused - how can Olympus get as good IQ as Fuji with a smaller sensor? Lens choice/quality is huge, so I"m not considering Sony (even though it's a full frame sensor) And I shoot very little in manual mode, so the quick AF becomes very important...

I'm rambling again...

One more quick question - has anyone tried extension tubes with their fuji lenses? I'm looking at something like this http://www.ebay.ca …_trksid=p3984.m​1423.l2649 (external link)

I also read that Fuji is going to be making their own tubes for the FX, but I don't know when they will be out...

Go with X-T1 if you want better image quality, better high iso performance, film simulations, and 1/32,000 shutter speed. You can always use Lens Turbo II or Metabones Speedbooster to get the Full Frame eXperience.

Go with OM1 if you want in-body stabilization, faster AF system, but image quality/high iso is no match to X-T1.

This.

To my eyes the difference is obvious between Fuji and micro 4/3. At low ISO I usually prefer images from my X-E1 to ones from my 6D ;)
