Wow. I've never owned a fuji but those are some class leading spec in that price range.
I do and they are great cameras. This new sensor looks epic.
If you count a 6x9 rangefinder I shot with in the 90s I guess I have used fuji :) I had to think for a while.
Maybe pick up a cheap one like the X-T20 and a couple of primes to see how you like it. The tech is obviously older but the fun factor isn’t..
With Canon's newly announced policy on 3rd party lenses , this new fuji is a firm favourite to to replace my aging 7dmkii wildlife setup.
Just pre-ordered the 20-35 for my GFX. That's gonna be awesome!
I'm excited for all the used prices on the current 56mm 1.2 to drop! The current one is still no slouch.
