True, i've had the d500 for a few years now and whilst i'd ( sometimes ) like something lighter, that comes with more money and as a hobbiest i don't have deep enough pockets to move systems for a minor inconvenience.
The d600 that i got last year for not much money does the FF stuff perfectly...
I want to start "seeing" shots like i used to when i had the basic fujis. By that, i mean i knew their limitations and so i adapted to become more creative
Thats what i used to love. I have 2 pretty good Nikons but they have been "stolen" by my 16 year old ( https://charliemp.co.uk/gallery ) so...
I can’t believe that it’s been nearly 3 years since I updated this thread. Many cameras have come and gone but I’m back this year with an e-m10 mk2, O17 f1.8, P12-32 and samyang 7.5 FE.
id really love to regain my mojo... fingers crossed
I'm watching this thread with interest, Andrew.
I sold my m43 gear a few year ago and now have a D500 and D600 but 2 years ago i bought a e-m10 mk2 and P12-32 because i kinda missed having a walkaround camera and I don't want to lug around a DSLR or 2 every time i go out..
You know, the usual...
I've had the x100T and wide angle converter before and loved it. Unfortunately, used prices have gone up massively - if I bought both converters and another T, I could be looking at over £800 and that's more than I want to spend.
Looking at the x-t10, does it have the same processor as the T ...
I loved my X100T ( i had the WA adapter too ) but i'd like more reach really. Its also beyond my price range that i can justify
Will have a look at the X-E1, thanks.. I'm not familiar with the Fuji line up
@gryphon1911 - there was a E-M10 mk2 that came up for sales really cheap 10 days...
I've had a couple of Fuji cameras in the past ( XF1, X30 and X100T ) but sold them all so that I could change from m43 to a D500. However, with a holiday coming i'm thinking about the (lack of) portability of my Nikon gear and should i go for a Fuji again ?
I don't want to spend lots of money...
well, the X100T has been sold so the journey pauses / concludes ( again ). I took it out a couple of times last month but mainly felt that i needed an ICL camera and as much as i enjoyed the Fuji, i couldn't justify having it sit round for much of the time.
This weekend, I have the E-m1 mk2 and...

I'm the same, Mike. Have a mk2 and dislike it - it's just a tool, that whilst producing plenty of detail, gives me zero enjoyment. Wifey loves it, she took it to NYC and other places, so it's staying apparently
Do you use a case or bag ? I really want to keep size to a minimum as I can put the camera in a jacket pocket. If I get the WCL and filter, I'll need something a little bigger but I don't want to throw loads on money at storage...
yesterday's outing was to the track. I'd usually take my m43 gear but thought i'd given the Fuji a go - the in-built ND filter was brilliant

So, not a good start to the week with the x100T.
Took a few photos in the kitchen ,wide open. Jees, this thing is crappy...stepped down to f2.8..oh ok - not bad. Reads reviews about f2 and close subjects...ah well documented. Ok.
Added a soft release button, charged the battery and went to bed...
I picked up a mint x100T this week with 1500 actuation for just over £500, including the Fuji case, spare Fuji battery and a JJC hood/filter.
After some initial disappointment ( f2 is really soft for close ups ) and "battery drain" ( or, adding a soft release button with the camera in high...
well my "out of office" didn't last long....black X100T is now on its way and should be with me tomorrow. Sold a few lenses too so the new camera will have cost me absolutely nothing, in fact i'm just a little ahead
thanks Tony. English winters are probably not the best time to buy a camera as its always so bloody grey and dull so i was scrabbling around, hoping to find some inspiration which we all know is far from ideal
I did like the look and feel of the camera so maybe another Fuji will come along..
