I did not sell my 7D....

Perhaps my wife understands my needs better ; - )

and selling good but old lenses is not a very good deal... and now i do not have to BUY so many new lenses for Fuji...

Fuji X-E1 feels like a perfect camera for traveling, hiking and just walking around, landscapes and streets . I had a G1X for that , but i could not  really use the lcd as viewfinder  ... EVF of x-E1 is surprisingly good !

18-55 is very usable - perhaps i can afford the Fujinon 10-24 when it comes.

I still like my 7D and it is a very good system  when i can carry a backpack/big bag  or if i need /want shoot something moving or some fast action - some seabirds or nature/wildlife closeups outdoors

Longer  tele lenses and zooms  are big and heavy - X-E1 is not very good for that kind of work - and the whole idea of small portable camera disappears. X-E1 is vey good for traveling light  with just one or two lenses  - not even a  flash needed!

One of my first images with X-E1 - test day No 1
