I like Fuji but honestly I've found the analog controls to be annoying to use for practical purposes when I need speed, simple no BS controls and having to move my hands as little as possible, and the novelty wore off after a short time.

Fuji color is good for Jpeg casual sharing but for actual professional jobs I still find myself having to color grade and do a lot of post processing anyway and here is where Fuji just doesn't hold up to Sony both in lightroom and capture one. The files just don't handle heavy drastic post processing as well.

Skilled photographers don't need heavy drastic post processing! That will absolutely spoil any colour quality

Tell that to my clients who want the instagram/cinematic look.

Fuji has been involved with photographic colour for around 80 years. It is highly regarded by experienced professionals. Sony is by no means bad, but just doesn't have the clarity, conviction or decisiveness of Fuji. Experience is important

Fujis cameras are anything but that lmao. You want no BS control, you grab a Sony, period.

Fuji cameras and lenses are widely used by top end pros in cinema/movie/TV applications as well as in still photography. Fuji make great medium format cameras and that is all about the look and the colour.

If those pros like that kudos to them, I prefer fast, simple, no BS so I don't

As for "no BS control, you grab a Sony"; well, that makes it easy but easy doesn't make one skillful. It makes for lazy shooting and lots of crass PP to fix up the mess.

Using your logic we should all go back to shooting film full manual with no autofocus.

Or yu can just be not lazy and using technologies to improve your work and creativity.

I've had a look through your portfolio. Twice. I do not think you have mastered colour or composition yet. You certainly post process with a very heavy hand. It is probably OK for instagram but certainly not for serious portraiture or fine art.

If you don't like it that's fine, my clients like them and that's all it matters to me and I can always improve (after all Ive only started shooting for a year ) and the flexibility of Sony cameras allow me to do that better than any other
