Re: Second time with XT-3

I went back to the store and spent about an 2 hours trying out all Sony, Canon, Nikon and Fuji mirrorless.

I have to say there is something about the Fuji that felt comfortable. Not just in the hand but also in the performance. I have never consider a Fuji camera as I have heard there were AF performance issues with friends who have had all range of fuji bodies.

This camera is different. I have been eyeing sony for a while now but the xt-3 took my gaze off the FULLFRAME mountaintop.

While I know Sony probably has best image quality, af, and battery life I would like to hear from those who use Fuji XT-3 on a daily basis to get photos in fast moving situations such as protests, press scrums, breaking news, etc.

I also hear the fuji fast glass is slow(af). i like their compact zooms. but short battery life is a concern.

The fast Fuji glass is indeed slower.  Do I miss shots because of it...even on my old X-Pro1...very, very rarely.  Depends on ones needs.  I went to the Fuji GFX 50S in order to skip so called fullframe altogether.  MF AF is much slower than top DSLRs for example.  I still dont miss shots because of it.

Go with what feels good in had, and is a nice experience to use.  Fuji does very well in this regard.  For image quality, you'll rarely see any difference other than at extremes...and those shots are rarely worth printing anyway.
