I"m always amazed at the people who think you're an idiot to do that. The "purists" if you want to call them that. "So you went from full frame to APSC?" with that tone of voice. Since the majority of what I do with my photo's is print them, no one ever has any idea what I shot it with unless I tell them. My biggest selling shot of the Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs was made with a Canon 10D. It's actually a better shot that the ones I did with 4x5 view camera.

Agreed! I got the 5D3 trying to get better quality coming from a 70D... When I decided to try an X-T1 I realized the Fuji system was a better fit for me. I felt the shots with it gave me a better image than what the 5D3 was (creatively ... colors, saturation, even the way it handles noise) straight out of the camera... My move to the X-T2 was only to gain the auto focus improvements for light sports and bird/wildlife shots... Sensor size is just another aspect of the tool, there are people who need that bigger sensor... But as a blanket statement that FF is better, is just false... All depends on what you are going to do with it...

Hi all
Moved to Fuji from Canon a couple of years ago and have been reasonably happy.
Mainly using the XT2 with the 16-55 and 40-140.
I kept my Canon 1D MK4 and 500mm F4 MK1 as when i was changing over to Fuji there was no long lenses.
Even now the longest they have is the 100-400 which i have tried at its not a patch on the Canon 100-400 mk2.
I have been thinking of moving over to the Olympus m4/3 system as they have the longer glass ie 300 f4 which is a 600 f4 on the m 4/3 system.
I like the Fuji system but unless they get there act together and bring out a decent 500 or 600 lens i will have to change again.

The camera companies are so happy that photographers are gear heads.. Always needing the latest and greatest.

I really like the Fuji eco system.. The company philosophy .. firmware updates.. Lens selection.

SOooooo many great cameras out there.

Compare the 5dsR, a7Rm2 or 3, even my swap upgrade to 5d4 was a noticeable step in the improvements of IQ. Higher mega pixel FF is still a pretty good jump.

Remember the 5d2 and 5d3 was virtually identical in iq. I can definitely say 5d4 is in a different league.

In my opinion new current FF is better .....it’s NOT really a blanket statement.

Fuji render is different. High iso to fresh sensors from the bodies I mention is also not in the same league.

If you observe i shoot canon and Fuji. Not saying this comment as I am using both tools!

Hyperbolic statements on the differences only confuse new comers.

Is there a difference? Of course. Is it "a different league", most wouldn't go anywhere near that far.

I think it wouldn’t be a far fetched statement if a person compares older tech FF sensors vs the newer available ones to a crop sensor. Many do a comparison to the older DSLR with lower tech sensors.

The key point is if the photog is demanding in low light performance with very high expectations in low level noise control would appreciated medium format or high tech FF sensors.. A person doing average print sizes or decent / good light shooting should use whatever they like.

Fuji is still not quite up to my demands but it’s getting there. My Canon is still a tool that delivers low light performance that the Fuji cannot match. Some folks easily accept that but I Separate Fuji joy and for serious shoots I use my trusted canon and incorporate some Fuji in the mix. Hopefully that’ll change but for now I use my aps-c Fuji for enjoyment purposes with some serious shoots in good light......that’s just my preference.....

For happy snapshooting and travel I love Fuji!

Alan, if high ISO is so important and AF too, why you don't shoot Sony A7rIII or the A9? Just curious. I don't have 5dmk4 but can't imagine it competing with A9 for example as far as eye AF and high ISO is concerned. I never seen any shots from you but I finally got my hands on 5ds at work and may do some side by side, just need some spare time.

I just shoot Canon because my lens investment. Familiarity using a Canon body is another reason due to ergonomics.

Recent changes puts photography down my priority list. I’m happy with my current tool kit ߘ

I think it's time that Canon and Nikon step up to the plate when it comes to mirrorless! Fuji and Sony are innovating and making amazing cameras!

Canon just did by adding 0 to 5 to make it E-50.

If you look at the most recent A73 specs it’s the Sony to buy for an equivalence to 5d4 but 1/2 the price.

I think Sony has recently created the benchmark of performance at the price point . This new camera has the cleanest high ISO performance of all Sony sensors at this moment and uses the A9 auto Focus algorithm. This almost sounds like a mini A9.

I remember when Canon said the 5D3 had the same AF system as the 1Dx, you'd think the AF would be the same by that statement, Remember when Nikon said the D850 has the same AF as the 5Ds.

Well time has told us that those statements did not hold true. I'm waiting to see about the AF and ISO claims when the cameras get into the real world for more than a few weeks.

I wish I didn’t see YouTube last night. At least metabone with canon glass is being sensible.
