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.

In the end, you really should get what excites you to go out and take photos.

I like Fuji and I probably would have purchased the X-T3 if it had IBIS and the battery life was improved over the X-T2, but after getting used to the battery life of the A9 (similar in the A7 III and A7R III), I can't go back crappy mirrorless battery life.
