I come from Nikon - everything Nikon since the 80's.
Now I possess 5 Fuji cameras, of which the X-S10 is the newest in technology and the only one with IBIS.
They're all great. They really are fun to work with, very intuitive and highly (too much so!) customisable

If you're looking to rekindle the fun element of photography, grab a Fuji
Currently, Fujifilm has X-H1 with IBIS, first-gen with 5 stops efficiency (not a very good reputation), and X-T4 is the second camera with IBIS (6 stops with a bit better reputation), X-S10 is the 3rd camera but 5.5 stops as it's a cheaper IBIS model then X-T4, X-H2 and X-H2s have the same IBIS. They were the newest until a few days ago, after Fujifilm announced X-T5 with IBIS. In terms of selection, there are a few camera models but in terms of range, it's only high-end ones with the exception of the X-S10.
 
Just received this email from Smallrig for the X-T5

Worth getting the X-T5 just for this, check out the whole page to see the half grip as well.

These should sell a lot for Fuji regardless of how god the camera works.
Wonder if I can trade my X-T4

Want to trade your X-T4 with my Sony a7R II? I'll throw in a lens for free :p

Funny thing how different things tickle different pickles... For me it was the other way around, kinda...

Back when I bought the X-Pro1 I hoped that it's old-school control arrangement would make it feel more like an old film camera and rekindle my photo mojo, that had been in a slumber for more than a decade after I'd sold all my darkroom stuff an my Mamiya 645 ProTL. But it didn't. Then I happened to spot the Canon EOS 6D on a black friday sale back in 2018, and decided to give that a try. And boy, did it work! The 6D felt more like a late film-era SLR and with that thing in hand I slowly found my mojo again. Though to be completely fair, the tool worked only as a trigger here. But it was enough to encourage me to take photos again, and venture out.

So, for some people it's Fuji. For me it was a Canon... Which is a bit like saying "I found the love of driving behind the wheel of a Corolla", but heck, I've seriously heard even that happen...

It's never to late to find the passion of crashing Corollas either ... Well for me it was back in 2001 when I played Need For Speed: Underground for the first time :p

(At this point the only format I have not tried is Medium Format, Large Format and Leica ... And I have no spare organs left for either of those.)

Well, one of my first “true driving experiences” was behind the wheel of a 1995 ford ranger. 4-banger, stick shift, with no power steering or AC. Was more fun than I cared to admit.
