Re: Fuji instead of Sony?

This is my current dilemma and I wonder if it is too late to switch to Sony.

After examining XT-3 as well as Canon's limited lineup of lenses and new camera I wonder if I will regret the switching to Sony.  Canon's new lens mount and their unique lenses have the potential to really kick a## when a pro body comes out.

And XT-3 viewfinder, responsiveness, and price are incredible.

At least there is now a little competition.

I use and have both (A7III + XT2) and the difference, from my own experience and not reviews or forums, is simple: the Fuji is more 'photographer' like and just is more fun and intuitive to use for me, the Sony is better in high ISO, AF and face/eye detection but often really feels like a small computer instead of a camera. Both can produce stunning images, I just "love" the Fuji, I "like" the Sony

plus the EVF on the Sony A7III is horrid vs the Fuji

Sony is a good camera -no doubt - but is does not beat the Fuji in all areas

if you have only tried the X2 and not the X3 you would be surprised at how good it is

in fact DP forum themselves just called it "the best all around camera"
