Selling points of x-t1
6 months ago

Hi, thinking about switching from Nikon FF to Fuji.  I shoot general use - landscapes, people whatever strikes my fancy.  I have fairly advance skills and shoot in manual and use LR and PS.

I have a D600 now, it's a great camera for photo quality.  It's been in the shop 4 times and still not fixed.  You know the usual oil spot problems.  Not a big deal to me, I don't let things like that bother me too much but I'm thinking about switching to fuji specifically the x-t1.  The Nikon is pretty good but the fuji would be I assume lighter smaller and a little easier to handle.  I don't mind lugging the Nikon around with the 2.8s but sometimes it's a little cumbersome.

The x-t1 will be an APS-C right?  Can the lens selection basically match or come close to the 14-200 on my FF.  That is, the "trinity" of Nikon lenses 14-24, 24-70, 70-200.  I like to shoot a prime or two as well.  I can get by with less of a lens selection but want to know what's available and what is the comparison to FF lenses on the Fuji.

Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated.

regards, David
