I am using both. If you use MF legacy lenses a lot, Sony is slightly better. JPGs, especially the skin tone and vivid colors, Fuji. Noise, probably Fuji (jpg). Fast primes, Fuji, although the FE Zeiss are also very good, but they need to release a few more. If you have the APSC sony, the size is a lot more portable.

I use a lot of legacy lenses so I can use the same lens on both systems. But Sony got more mount adapter avail like the metabones FE to E with AF and aperture control.

Recently, after seeing the rumored specs of the X-T1, I suddenly considered switching systems! The thing that was holding me back for the past few systems were the no tilt screen which helps me a lot in car photography and concerts, the slightly inferior evf(not really sure how good it is but it seems like the review points that the nex system had a better one), slow/inacurate af(again mostly from reviews but sony has the same thing but it seemed like fuji was worse in that department in the reviews compared to sony)!

I love how the rumored specs of the X-T1 seems to have addressed some of my concerns and it seems appropriate for me to jump ship already being that fuji trumps sony in the lens department hands down! Still unsure of the af of the X-T1 so I am still waiting for more leaks or its official release! Also, I wish fuji had the same flash as Sony where it was able to tilt sideways for portrait shots(is there a flash like that for fuji?)! Those are the only things holding me back plus the hassle of selling all my sony gear to migrate to fuji!

Are there any member that came from sony or even have a sony system as part of their gear? If so I would appreciate the input if its truly worth switching mounts! Thanks in advance and would appreciate the input!

Manual lenses isnt really my thing and fuji can already fill my lens needs with their native lenses! I have a couple like the canon fd 35/2, bokina, and the takumar 50/1.4 but only use the takumar since I sold my Sony 50/1.8 a while ago! Fuji seems to trump sony's offering on most focal lengths! The zeiss 24/1.8 does have that nice bokeh that the 23/1.4 has and that seems to have sold me on fuji! Even the initial 35/1.4 release was really enticing me but camera performance from reviews made me shy away from fuji! I truly hope the X-T1 will perform the way I am anticipating it to be! If it does, I will have to jump on that fuji ship asap!
