Forget about the a7ii, it's not a successful camera

Lol. Great way to make decisions in life — if the masses don't like something, then it couldn't possibly be good. I prefer seeing for myself and forming my own opinions. When you do that, it's amazing how often the masses get it wrong. For the record, have you ever actually used an A7 II?

I’ve used the A7II alongside the X-T2 and I found the Fuji to be superior in nearly every regard, including low light/high ISO. With most of the really good Sony glass being ridiculously expensive, the choice was an easy one for me.

Fair enough. That seems much more informative than the A7 II not being "successful."

For what it's worth, I've been very happy with the quality of of Sony's inexpensive primes like the 28 f/2 and 50 f/1.8 and inexpensive zooms like the much maligned Zeiss 24-70 f/4 and 28-70 kit lens. I also just acquired the Sony 85 f/1.8 and expect that will shine as well.

Most of these lenses I got for a song — either open-box clearance with an additional 15% off on BuyDig.com, or a good used deal on eBay, or simply a cheap price brand-new.

It's funny — to me, Fuji's lenses seem really expensive. I'm sure they're great quality, but I don't think I could afford a complete Fuji kit even if I was interested, possibly aside from one centered around the X-T100, which I've always found to be an interesting camera for its bargain-basement price.

In any case, we each found systems we're pleased with. Happy shooting!
