Got a small bonus at work - want to buy camera gear, what to get?
Mar 18, 2014

Got a small but unexpected bonus at work today.  Going to allocate a chunk of that ($1000ish or less) towards some camera equipment, want some suggestions on what to get.

I currently have a Canon 6D with 24-105, and 50mm 1.8.  I also have a Fuji X100s that I love.  My wife has a Canon SL1 with 18-55, 55-250, and a Canon S110.  I obviously have access to those cameras as well.  With that gear, I shoot everything I want, works great for me.  But obviously this is more of a "want" than a "need" purchase.  That being said, here is a list of stuff I'm considering, please recommend JUST one:

(1) Fuji XE-1 with 18-55: Good pricing on these now, and the X100s has really made me love Fuji.  I'd probably add 35mm 1.4 down the line as well.

(2) Fuji X20: Again, I'm starting to really like Fuji.  Not sure if this would make much sense since I already have X100, would give me some added flexibility of a zoom lens I guess.

(3) An additional lens for my Canon system: Not sure which, but I've been desiring a higher quality prime.  I Could stretch my budget for a 35mm 1.4L, or maybe get a 35mm f2 IS or 50mm 1.4.  85mm 1.8 may make sense as well, but it's not a focal length I use as much as 35 and/or 50mm.

(4) Sony RX-100: I had one previously and kind of miss it.  Solid IQ in a compact package.  That being said the X100s has become my "go-anywhere" camera, so not sure if the RX-100 would get much time from me.  Maybe if I REALLY wanted to be compact.
