Re: choosing between X-T1 and Sony A7
In reply to Arn, 6 months ago

My $0.02; Last year I dumped my D800 and heavy lenses, and switched to the Fuji X-E1, and some great XF lenses, and I have no regrets at all. As a bit of a gear junkie, I did lust for the A7r for a while, since it has that great sensor in a small form factor. But even though the A7/A7R camera body is small, FF lenses will always be larger and more expensive than equivalent APS-C lenses of the same speed (aperture), and I didn't want to get back into a bag full of heavy lenses again. The first batch of Sony/Zeiss FE lenses may be reasonably sized to match the smaller body but these are  all much slower lenses, so for me they offer no real advantage over the Fuji X system.
