I have a D800. On Tuesday, that will change to I had a D800. I also have bodies ranging from an IR-converted D200, a D300 and a D700. A more than reasonable assortment (collection is too kind a word) of Nikon film bodies and a good assortment of MF, AF DX and FX G Nikon glass.

The D800 is simply more camera than I need. It is a wonderful image-maker and I did apologize to it as I packed it up the other night. But it is just too much. I have never outshot any camera I have ever owned. I absolutely love my D700 and don't see myself ever parting with it. The person getting the D800 is getting a great deal on a sweet camera; he will shoot the living daylights out of it and run it like the thoroughbred it is.

That said, I fell in love with the X-T1 the first time it was placed in my hands. My back isn't what it used to be. Hell nothing is what it used to be!!!! I will carry the little Fuji daily; something I could never say for any of my Nikons.

As far as a case of GAS is concerned, I don't think so. If it was, I would have been all over the Canon 1DX that a friend has. When you let loose a burst from that bad boy, it's amazing! More amazing is the ergonomics seemed right. A true miracle in it's own right!!

With the help of an adapter, I will continue to use my Nikon glass along with that from Fuji.

Yes, I love my Fuji !!!! I used 85 % more than my Nikon DSLR cameras.

The Fuji XT-1 improves a ton of refinements to date .I owned an XE-1 prior to this, and liked it a lot Simply a fantastic camera, one of the best of Fuji X system. The Fuji Xt-1 Camera with the 18-55 mm kit lens as an alternative to a big SLR for walk-around travel photography.This camera exceeds my expectations.

This is the camera takes great pictures, accompanies high quality interchangeable lenses and reasonable on price. It's not a sports action camera, and it won't totally replace my full frame DSLR Nikon D800,D700, D3s for most professional photography. But there is just something about it that makes me want to go out and shoot with my family and friends and other slower paced photography.
