Hi,

I just purchased a Canon 70D after much contemplation about my next camera. I had a 5D Mark II, but was looking for the best compromise between fast operation, good video and image quality. The Canon 70D is sensational when it comes to overall operation, but the image quality lets down, with very limited dynamic range. For this reason, I am willing to go back to FF. The 6D is a good alternative (although I would sorely miss the brilliant video autofocus of the 70D), but I heard that the Fuji x trans sensors come close to FF quality. I am attracted to the compact, retro style bodies and manual control. I would be willing to sacrifice good video, if I get great FF like image quality from the Fuji bodies.

Can anyone comment on this please? Especially in terms of highlight and shadow recovery. How well is details at these extremes recovered from RAW files?

Thanks

Only ff gives ff results, and to be honest, I think you're barking up the wrong tree

The Fuji X cameras, and the 70D and 6D, are so different and far apart operationally that they're not even in the same galaxy.

You would really need to try them and see the images for yourself.

As far as APS-C cameras go the Fuji cameras are right up there at the top, but to compare them to ff?

I don't think a meaningful comparison could be made.
