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?

Once I bought my X-E2 I sold my 5DII and lenses.  I became disenchanted with Canon lenses, particularly the 16-35 f2.8 L II.  Overall, I'm happier with the quality of my large prints, and the Fuji is SO much more fun to use and carry around.
