I went with a used Fuji X-T1 in excellent + condition along with a fast 35mm lens. it'll be fun to use and I'm looking forward to it's arrival, it gets some great reviews. I can now sit back and see what Nikon comes up with for a DX mirrorless, but odds are I'll have to wait a few years for the price to drop like this Fuji.


Nikon D-3300 18-55 VRII, 1971 Nikkor 135mm Q-Auto, Tamron 70-300 AF. Not much! But I'm working on mastering what I do have.

It came in today, what a different animal! I knew it was a photographers camera but this is a lot like a Nikon DF. After charging the battery I gave it a quick going over, the view finder is very large and very clear. Extremely fast AF and the focus is as clear in the EVF as the photo itself. I have a lot of reading to do but at first glance it's very impressive.

Nice looking camera.  

 

Just before Xmas, one of my fellow camera club members was selling a used Fuji S-9000 for a really good price.  Got it for Angela as a Xmas present.  Had a play yesterday, so I could show her.  I was very impressed.

 

Looking forward to seeing some pics, sir.  :)

l've always liked the style of the Fuji mirrorless cameras. But l went with the Canon M50 because with the lens adapter l have access to using Canon EF/EF-S glass and get AF and lS.

They make an adapter for Canon to Fuji that allows AF, not sure on the IS but I would assume so since the IS in the lens.

I wish those with the new Nikon Z Series Mirrorless the best.  I am sure they must be fun and have lots of benefits.  However, I am not sure they can best what I have for what I do these day.  I will stay with my Nikon D500 and Df (my favorite for all around use) for now (just sold my D750 and D800 for lack of use) and still use an old Coolpix P7000 often as well as the Coolpix A.  My mirrorless are Fuji X-Series (X100, X-E1, X-T1 and my favorite in that line up the X-Pro2.  These Fuji perform some wonderfully for much of what I do.  My focus in better images and less about gear the older I get.  I am happy with what I have.
