Re: Anybody come to or return to m4/3 after using Fuji?

Yup

Sigma SD9 for a long time. 2-3 Full Frame jaunts, Kodak, Canon etc. Several other APSC

Then Fuji. Sold for Sony FF

Tired of the weight I tried MFT via the GM5 - too small. No Ibib, but it is a nice pocket camera.

Bought a GX85 and liked it a lot. Eventually sold it for a GX9.

I dont think I would go back to Fuji although it is a very nice system.

I would either go FF or MF and keep MFT.

For my GX9, I have the Oly 9-18, Oly 12-100, Pana 100-300II. From 18-600mm Equiv is hard to do in 3 lenses except MFT. I also kept a Pana 12-32 for a small normal lens and a 7.5mm fisheye.

However, IMO, the only reason to buy MFT is for lighter weight, longer zoom range for some lenses for the weight and the tele advantage and that is about it.

Of course the main drawback is DOF and and high ISO noise. And there are not that many super fast AF lenses. The super fast AF lesnes that do exist are very expensive.

Right now I am happy with my main lens kit although I may upgrade to the Pana 7-14mm.

I have a friend that was a big Fuji fan and travels a lot.

Finally convinced him to try MFT primarily to lighten his load, and now he is set up and sell his Fuji gear.
