I have over the years gravitated to the current lineup of Fuji cameras. I own an X-T2 and X-T20 and absolutely love them! Anyone else here own Fuji gear?

    I also own an X-T2.

    I moved from Canon a few years ago and I've never looked back.

    👋 Love my Fuji. I’m reversed into them. Bought a Contax 645 which I love. Thought I’d go digital MF. Went GFX50s. Love it. Also have a Texas Leica. Next up an XT4. Just need to get a job..,

    I am using Fuji X-T20 since 2018 and I am really happy with it. The X-T20 is all about the overall package than one or two specs that stand out. 24MP X-Trans CMOS III sensor, up to 325 selectable AF points (169 of which offer phase detection), 2.36M-dot OLED electronic viewfinder, 3" 1.04M-dot tilting touchscreen LCD, 4K UHD video at up to 30 fps, with clean output over HDMI, all of these features make X-T20 extremely amazing. The EVF is a pleasure to use, though the touch functions on the tilting LCD are limited.
    If we had to compare Canon M200 and Fuji X-T20, two Entry-Level Mirrorless cameras from Canon and Fujifilm, I would still prefer X-T20 owing to imaging, features, value, and portability. If small size and light body is a big priority for you, choose Canon M200. Otherwise, Fujifilm X-T20 is the better camera overall.

    Got a second hand XT-2 last year and am constantly considering selling it as I really don't need all it has to offer, it's mainly the 120fps filming keeping me on it :D

    The original X100, which I use for construction progress pics, and X-E3, and a bunch of mf (7Artisans, Meike & FD) glass :)

    I have been using the X-T2 and X-T3. I still use my Canon cameras at times. And I have been known to take a Fuji and a Canon camera with me when going on a safari or river cruise. But if I am just taking one camera on a trip, it is the Fuji X-T3.

    Hi ollel, please do describe your expectations for your Fujifilm purchase,

    • How you intend to use it (sports, nature, portraits, etc)?
    • If you want to sell images made with this camera (what level of image quality and largest print size)?
    • Lighting conditions you anticipate (indoors or outdoors, bright sunny vs indoors ambient/available light, etc.)?
    • Interchangeable lens or fixed lens body?
    • If interchangeable lens body, do you have additional budget for lenses and accessories?
    • Do you anticipate shooting to RAW or JPG files?
    • Video applications?
    • Anything else you can tell us about your needs and wishes regarding a camera purchase?
    • (The more you tell us the better we can help.)

    Just remember that activities strongly influence camera and lens choice. Dogs and horses running, small children running and many wild animals in nature, all require cameras and lenses capable of rapid autofocus and responsive controls. Entry level and consumer grade cameras and lenses will be challenged in these situations.

    Then again, the subject matter and situations that are suitable for the average smartphone are also suitable for most any digital camera as well. Where beginner interchangeable lens digital bodies can excel, compared to phone cameras, is the ability to use telephoto lenses and relatively high-powered flash photography.

    That's how most people, myself included, begin their photographic journeys.

    @ollel said:
    3. outdoors;

    "Outdoors" does not describe lighting conditions. Daytime outdoors is hopefully what you meant, and the vast majority of DSLRs and Mirrorless cameras do well in Daytime outdoors.

    Nighttime outdoors is potentially difficult unless you use proper equipment and techniques.

    Lens selection is actually more important than camera selection. I would not recommend cheap lenses or manual lenses in your case. An economical alternative is used lenses from a trusted vendor.
    I can recommend used lenses from:

    KEH also has a pretty good article (slightly dated) on used FujiFilm cameras:

    @ollel said:
    6. what to shoot JPG files;

    Fuji cameras do a fine job processing the image to JPG files. Generally rich and vibrant colors for scenics and vistas. People/human skin tones are good, but I would rather process them from RAW files for better control and natural-looking results.

    thanks for your great suggestions. I have got an idea of how to choose a lens and camera. Haha, if I want to take some excellent pictures, it has a long way to go.

    Had Fuji's for many years. Millions of 'em. Currently only have X-s10 / 35 F1.4 / 16-80 F4. That covers just about anything except longer lens for sports etc. Phenomenal camera. Phenomenal lens.
