Is the fuji xt1 worth it?
Sep 2, 2014

So I am going to post this question in this forum as well as Nikon's. I have been trying to decide between Nikon d7100 and Fujifilm xt1. See, I love what fuji has to offer with this little camera (especially the dials), and because I will be traveling extensively in the next year or two, I like how it is so lightweight (relative to my other option, that is). I've gotten more and more into photography and my old bridge camera is no longer cutting it for me with what I want from my images. The thing is that I just graduated from university and do not have thousands of dollars to burn on a bunch of lenses and the fanciest of cameras, but I have saved up a bit..

I feel like if I go with fuji, I'll only be able to have that one lens--the 18-55mm one. That's a good lens and all, but it will keep me fairly limited. Granted, I don't typically use a lot of zoom (I'd actually prefer a wide angle lens over a zoom one in most instances) but that would be all I could do...

If I go with Nikon, I could get the 18-140 or 18-105 lens with it and a cheap 50mm so I could have a little bit less weight to carry around depending on the day...but it is so heavy to begin with!! but even with a second lens, it would still be 200$+ cheaper than the fuji.

So, basically, my question is that if I would take the plunge and spend more on the fuji, would I be satisfied in Europe for 1.5 years with only the 18-55mm lens?

This question has not been answered yet.
