Hi all.. recently I purchased the Fuji X-E1 along with all of the available Fuji lenses..

I've been happy with the IQ of the still images I've taken with the X-E1, but as for pictures of people doing things, I've been rather disappointed. Same goes for pictures taken in dimly lit "party" type settings..

As such, I'm considering getting the Canon ff 6d.

Prior to purchasing the X-E1 I was using the Canon 60d. I was happy with the camera but hated the size and the weight of carrying the camera along with several lenses, especially when traveling in Europe and Asia..

I've sold my 60d and now am having a hard time deciding whether or not to keep the X-E1 or going ff with the Canon 6d and 24-105 L lens..

I know the trade off is weight and size, but if I want the best IQ in all types of situations, is my only option to go to the 6d? I shoot everything from landscapes, to portraits, to party type settings..

If I do go with the 6d, I'll probably just stick with the 24-105 L for a while and maybe add the 16-35L or 17-40L and the 35 1.4 L.

Anyone else have the same experience? Thoughts? Advice?


Ask the same question in the Canon 6D Talk forum and I'm sure the responses will be in favor of the Canon , not the Fuji XE-1 kit.

I tried the XE-1 kit to replace my Canon 5DMKII, 24-105 , 14, 24 TS, 85 1.2, 105 Macro, and 50 1.2 kit, and had to pass on the Fuji.  Canon is a mature system,  Fuji is  not.

For  me,  Fuji too limited as a system, I hated the ergonomics and menu system, , AF, and OK IQ.

So instead , keeping  Canon as my "go to" everything  kit.    Bought  the Fuji X100s,  to use as casual social, and travel camera.

Good luck in your decision.
