Suggestions for small camera - Fujifilm X20 or ?
May 17, 2013

Hi Everyone,

This is my first time posting in the Fujifilm X System Forum and hope you can advise me with respect to purchasing a smaller camera.

Background: I use a Nikon D800 and have many Nikon lenses.  Prior to digital, I shot with Contax RTS cameras & Zeiss lenses.  Photography has been a lifelong hobby for me.

I'm looking for a smaller camera to carry around so I don't have to carry the Nikon.  I was in a car accident a couple of months ago and as of now, can not comfortably handle my DSLR equipment.  I had been thinking of a smaller camera for a while but the injuries I sustained in the accident have been the motivation to make a purchase.

Goal: A camera to have fun with and to bring me back to the joy of taking photos as I continue to recover from the physical injuries.  I don't want the weight of my heavy Nikon system.

Price: Not the deciding factor, but I can't look in the Leica price range.

Needs:

1) RAW files;

2) A viewfinder.  I don't want to have to use my reading glasses every time I take a photo;

3) Good quality lens and files.  This camera is for enjoyment so I don't need huge RAW files;

4) A fixed lens; and

5) I like the flexibility of a zoom lens...but am not married to having a zoom.

From reading camera reviews, the Fugifilm X20 looks to be an interesting choice.

I would appreciate your thoughts, advice and suggestions as to what other cameras to consider.
Thank you!
