Fuji I'm in trouble...

Hi all. Need your help. I now have three bodies:eek-42::eek-42:: XP1 - XT1 - XT20, too many. I really like my XP1 and think that maybe it would be a good idea to sell one of the others.

Which one? Or keep them all?:hmmm::hmmm::confused-14:

Of the three bodies you have, the X-T20 would be the least useful to me. A gripped X-T1 is my workhorse camera. And the X-Pro1, well is the X-Pro1.
But with the XT-20 I would have the new sensor and faster AF for tracking, if I'm not wrong about AF. Decisions. decisions...I think I'll end up keeping all of them.

For me, it's a matter of ergonomics versus incremental improvements, esp. in the imaging sensor. I'm not sure that trading off a 24MP and big AF improvements is worth it to keep an older camera. Which is why in my fading days with Nikon, one of my go-to bodies was a D5200, and not an older D300.

Its the same what I think. The reason for keeping the XT1 is that is has litthe resale value here in Italy.

Do you need the faster AF/tracking for what you shoot? Or is it just a feature? The new sensor is awesome. But that doesn't mean the 16mp sensor is not also great. If it helps, I had the X-Pro2. Sold it to go back to the X-T1 because the T1 with grip is the better camera for me, for how I shoot. Comparing the X-T1 and X-T20, the ergonomics, controls, and much better build with weather sealing are far more important to me than the newer sensor and AF of the X-T20.

Weather sealing is not important for me. But I like the xt1 even if I don't mind shooting with the XT20 so it's a draw. Maybe I'll wait for definite decision.

I'd sell the XT1. The X-T20 is a better compliment to the larger size and slower AF of the XP1. The X-T20 and he XP1 together give you a wider range of capabilities. Of course, I probably feel that way because that's what I have. :p

Agreed. I'm not sure if it is exactly "ergonomics" per se but the thing that makes the difference for me is the "SLR" vs. "Rangefinder" handling. I just prefer a flat top and a viewfinder to the left.

sell 'em all and buy an X-T2 or X-Pro2...whichever style you prefer. If you're not a professional....you only need one body (said the guy that never takes photos that has 2 bodies and another camera)
Good advice but like them all. This morning I went out shooting with the XY20 and thought: "OMG this one I really like!":biggrin: I'm sure I'll think the same of everyone body I have so...maybe its better not to sell otherwise I risk GAS attack and buy again what I sold.:roflmao::eek-42:

Sleep on it for a while... Plenty have fallen in and out of love with the XP1 and you only just got that one

The XT1 is (give or take) quite near the bottom of it's depreciation curve, so no rush

The XT20 is probably at the prime time in its life for being an expensive mistake if you flip it (but someone else's bargain)

If I had to chose for you, I'd keep the XP1 and XT20, that's sort of the best of old and new Fuji X worlds IMO
