I spent 2 weeks with an xt20 as a small bring with me camera and then sold 7k worth of canon gear and replaced it with Fuji.
I've been a canon shooter since the '80s and I don't own anything canon except a printer now.

I sold all my Canon stuff and am in the process of selling my canon printer too...just because I switched to laser. Its easy to switch once you try out the Fuji stuff!

I'm on the tipping edge of that now. As a dad who documents his children first it makes more sense.

I'm gonna hold out to see what this tele option is from Fuji. I'm hoping it's a 200mm F2. This would seal the deal for me.

As of now godox is releasing a trigger for the Fuji so all my godox lights will work great for studio.

I live in both worlds and love carrying and using my X-E2 but the thing that keeps me in the Canon world is getting something in focus when it is moving and following it while shooting. Fuji C focus mode is nowhere near as good as on my Canon bodies and the viewfinder delay on burst mode are show stoppers for a lot of what I shoot. I would also need a 300mm f2.8.

Are things a lot better on the newer bodies?

Miles better on the new bodies. I have a friend who is a long time Fuji user and owns the xe2 as well and had the xe1 and now owns the xt20 as well and it's his verdict

Talley,

Have fun spending money LOL!!!

What you'll find is that fuji's video looks "good enough" straight out of camera..but even better when you post process.

When I want to document stuff that I do not want to miss any photo's I'll use my canon. I still find my 5d3 and 80D has a solid center focus without missing a beat with zero hesitation. I cannot say the same for my Fuji X-T2. Throwing on my EF-X500 with fuji I will still get "NO AF" red indicator from time to time while my RED infrared focus assist on my Canon sensor virtually locks on in almost total darkness.

My go to for most of my photography for personal family documentation is the Fuji system.

I'm enjoying every second shooting Fuji and Canon. I actually even shoot two system during some events as well.

If you dont mind shooting the 5dmk4 and handle the weight you will get fantastic photos. The fuji will be something that you'll find keep up with the rock solid performance of the 5dmk4. AF is still much better with the Canon but sometimes you don't need super fast AF especially in ultra low light.

You'll find a balance of what to grab out of your gearbag. Have fun spending money!

Talley,

Just buy lenses that you use. Stop being a gear whore LOL!! I'm finding that I've sold a bunch of lenses and own lenses that meets my "style" requirements instead of owning every single lens with some having an inch of dust on it......

I know as a fact that I could not sell my Canon gear. Until fuji can focus perfectly in the dark with blinking "NO AF" I will stick with my Canon gear.

Everyone uses their gear for different applications. I'm hoping the "X-T3 or X-T4" improves on AF speed with zero hesitation like the newer generation pro/prosumer DSLR bodies. Mind you I can still document capturing "almost" everything I want with my X-T2. Missing a shot here and there still disappoints me.

I'll admit I prefer the light weight fuji body but if I buy a battery booster it defeats the purpose of a "light weight" system. Battery capacity of even the new w126s batteries is still terrible.

Sounds like you should sell your fuji gear as its not meeting your needs or maybe some quirks irritate you?

Yo Osa,.....far from......

I actually like how fuji renders but no seasoned photographer can proclaim the X-T2 is equivalent to a DSLR in AF especially in low light.

There are fuji shooters using zone for action with no specific focus point on the subject. The Fuji AF is selecting and doing the work for you and it works as long as you use the proper constant AF profile or using your own custom profile for constant AF!!!

You have slower moving subject where fuji also works. This is probably majority of the photos we typically take.

This year I documented another kid's Easter egg hunt. I'll have to say the X-T2 did a decent job in capturing photos. My X-T10 and X-E2 was dreadful in capturing sprinting kids in close proximity. The X-T2 did have "NO AF" from time to time but it was substantially better than my previous 16mp fuji bodies. However the X-T2 is not on par with my 80D or 5dmk3 in positive instant AF both in Constant ai servo AF or single point. There is no denial close proximity shooting with fast moving subjects is NOT easy.

This is why I own both DSLR for extremely demanding AF needs and the very capable X-T2.

I truly thought the EF-X500 flash would help the X-t2 in focus assist in low light. It sadly does not make a difference except blinding people with a piercing LED assist. I'm still on a learning curve on this setup. This is where a infrared focus assist is subtle and not as "in your face".

I'm not resistant into selling my Canon gear once Fuji improves the AF system even more. AF in low light with an external flash the fuji system currently hesitates in low light, low contrast situations and simply stops focusing. In the meantime I'm still pushing my skills in using the fuji for more serious shooting to meet my comfort levels.

This is why I'm still using my fuji as a secondary system due to "no AF" in low light. Otherwise I love fuji files.
