How did you get here?

More than a few threads start with, "I'm currently using xyz camera, thinking about getting into Fuji..." I was one of those not too long ago.

I'm curious what systems people were using before they got into Fuji and potentially why the switch.

I had a D600 but Nikon bought it back from me. I took the opportunity to downsize as I carry my camera in the backcountry on multiple night trips pretty often. So I got an A7 - was an early adopter. I didn't really hate it although the menus were a pain. Image quality was the same as D600, but it was compact. However, I was also looking at a lot of money for their new lenses that were coming out and some of them were not small. I was starting to feel that the Sony system was going to be out of my price range.

Fuji aesthetic/ergonomics had always attracted me starting with the Xpro1. I had always hoped for a 24Mp Xpro2 and when it arrived that's where I went. I plan to get a GFX in the next year or two for wedding work, but that's a way off for now.

Where did you come from? Trying to cover the bases below:
