Falling out of love with Canon
19

I know that the haters are going to hate on me for this one...

I own the original M then had the M3 and currently own the M6 and M5. I also shoot with a 5Diii and have a couple of MFT cameras including the Pen F and OMD1.

The recent announcement of the M6ii  and the potential that an M5ii might not happen is disappointing. I know there are conflicting rumours on this one.

What's really bugging me is the glacial progress in the M line. A common theme in the forum.

The lack of decent lens development. I know this has been mentioned a thousand times on this forum and yes I could adapt lens' (defeating the portability benefits of the M series) but I look across to other systems and just get the impression that Canon's doesn't really seem to be in the M.

Plus with the R line, they seem to be throwing a lot at this. I am tempted - only marginally, but  the native lenses are wildly expensive.

I bought the original M5 for over £1000 as soon as it came out. I've been a Canon advocate and user for a decade but I'm seriously thinking of selling and moving away.

Other systems aren't perfect but its like waiting for Brexit, waiting for the next lens. And the prospect of no M5ii has just about finished me off.

I've never had a fuji but like their system. I've got to say that for portability and fun Olympus is ticking all of my boxes at present and they have a great lens selection. The haters are going to say goodbye then

Anyone else feel the same? What system has turned your head?
