Anyone thought about moving to Fuji X-T1?
4 months ago

I have just decided to sell my DSLR full frame equipment.

It's simply to big and inconvenient for my kind of shooting.

So I am now back to playing with my EM-5, which I think is a great camera. There is a slight loss in image quality compared to full frame, but not that noticible (unless you pp).

I was now planning to add a 12-40 2.8 to my lens collection. A faster zoom in the midrange would be very useful to me.

However, what I got to notice is that a fuji X-T1 with the kit lens wouldn't be much bigger than the em-5 with the 12-40 2.8. And the fuji kit, with apertures from 2.8 to 4.0, with the Aps-c sensor would give me a shallower Dof
. And there are very tempting lenses in the fuji line, like the 23, 35 and 56.

Also read about the great EVF of the X-T1 and the bigger sensor should give a slightly better quality (or not?)

Anyone thought about making a transition to fuji?

The one thing I would definitely miss is the Ibis.

What are the pros and cons you see?

Thanks
