When I sold off all my Fuji back in the day (my X-E1, 18/2, 35/1.4, 55-200) days...my biggest regrets are losing the IQ of the 35/1.4 - but not the AF speed, that annoyed the heck out of me....and the 55-200. That 55-200, at the time was an awesome performer even wide open and at the time was way better IQ/sharpness than the comparable Nikon 70-300 zooms at the time.I've spent a lot of time over the past few weeks going through thousands of images in my archives. I've owned a lot of different cameras, and have gotten nice images with all of them. It seems I've had a lingering wanderlust to try different gear, but I keep being drawn back to Fuji. Possibly the best images I got were with the X-T20 I owned briefly, but I wasn't enamored with the handling of that camera. I also found myself lingering in the folders with many nice images from my old X-T1.
With retirement looming, I've decided to make a seismic shift in my camera gear. Although I have enjoyed my stay in that world, gone soon will be the mu4/3 gear. Gone also will be the A7II and FE 35mm/2.8. I've ordered a like new X-T2 from mpb, as well as an XF 18-55, a brilliant little lens that I never should have sold. The adapted lenses that have been trickling into my house over the past few months will go on eBay.
I'm reducing my kit down to the X-T2, XF 18-55, and XF 55-200. I don't need multiple bodies, and I don't need multiple lenses cluttering my desk and shelves. The size and weight of Fuji cameras and lenses fits my ethos, and I'm looking forward to once again using the Q menu and Fuji film simulations. For the type of outdoor activities I enjoy, this kit should serve me for a long time.
