Dear folks,

I had been a long time SLR since its analog days.

Thinking of selling the DSLR (5DMK2 and L lens).

I'll keep only the Sony NEX and add the Fuji XT-1.

My thoughts for the above setup is due to the bulk and weight when travelling.

Had seen the pics from Fuji System X and it's simply wonderful.

Wouldn't want to add another system as I could shoot with 1 at a time.

Had been shooting more with the NEX 7 recently and the 5DMK2 had been kept in the dry cabinet...

What are your opinions?

My opinion is you won't use the NEX 7 after you buy an X-T1.

I sold my FF Nikon and a dozen pro lenses when I moved to the X-T1 and am delighted with the move. I'd been waiting for years for Nikon to release something like the X-T1 and associated lenses. It was Fuji that finally delivered.
