It’s probably a mixture of rose tinted glasses and GAS
I‘ve had a Nikon set up for years and this had several lenses years ago. That meant that I lost the portability and the “always with me” of something pocketable., which is why I bought the XF1 originally.
When that died, I got another small Fuji but was not always happy with the IQ so that went and I got the X100T. I loved the output and the fact that it made me think about what I was doing but the lack of articulated screen meant that it just wasn’t really suitable for my needs.
So I went back to m43 with an e-m10.2 and a p20. At the time, I didn’t have the money to go full Fuji and I’d had m43 before.
I’ve long had this thing in my head that it’s not the gear but the person holding it that makes the photo so I would champion the underdog. M43 can’t do sport ? Meh, let’s see
Rationally, it made no sense - I have a d500 after all…
The 10.2 was replaced with a 1.2 and then came a new more lenses. Over the last few years, and possibly due to Covid restrictions, I’ve taken less landscape and travel photos and more car show / meet photos. So my “want” list changed, more subject isolation but not at the cost of kit size or image quality. Due to GAS, my m43 kit often stayed at home in favour of iPhone snaps but I got no joy from that…
10 days ago, I decided to make the change back to Fuji again. Limit my purchases this time, don’t buy lenses that sit in the cupboard. So my m43 kit was packed up, along with a hardly used d3400, and sold.
and that’s where I am now. I need to change the settings on the X-T20 and get the quick menu to my needs… and then get out and take some photos..
