So I've decided to sell off my remaining Canon pieces, and go full on Fujifilm for all my photography, and possibly some video work. I have an Xpro2, X-T2 and X100F, so I'm all set and in the echo system.

I'm just curious for former Canon or Nikon users that have switched over to Fujifilm, that were in the full frame you have any regrets? I know in certain instances, especially in wider aperture, you experience less bokeh and not as shallow depth of field as you do with Full Frame.

But just curious for those that made the switch how you feel now, about it, and what it's opened up (or closed up for you).

I used a D800e and got an XE1. I found I used the XE1 more and more.

The main advantage of the Fuji is smaller size, vibrant colours and better white balance.

The main advantage of the Nikon was the usual FF advantages, better DR, better low light performance.

But with the latest X series that advantage is slowly eroded away but I find I have to keep an eye on DR as sometimes overexposed skies turn an ugly cyan which I dislike.

I never have to worry about that with a Sony A7r2. With a Canon their usual problem is shadow noise or banding. Fuji does not have that as its a Sony Exmor sensor.
