So I currently am shooting both but the true test will be my sister's wedding next weekend after which I will decide which system to truly invest into. I'm leaning towards the Canon, mainly because of available lens options, especially used market, and of course my personal need for quicker AF. I've found that it has been almost impossible to get anything for the x series cameras locally so the secondhand market is pretty much non existent here. There are two local camera shops and one doesn't own anything fujifilm at all.

I think having both these systems is ideal for wedding photogs. The XP1 is great for when you need to be inconspicuous (although the silent X100 is even better for inside churches). The Canon system is good for everything else.

I'm selling my f2.8 zooms and DX body but keeping my D700 and primes, which I'll use with an adapter on XP1 along with the XF 35mm f1.4 and 18-55 zoom.
