Do you maintain a different system for different photography needs?

Re: Do you maintain a different system for different photography needs?

I bought into Fuji last year for decent primes and 99% of my shooting which is family, friends, documentary amateur style and some event.
I have kept my Nikon D7000 and 80-200 F2.8 for atheltics, particularly running.    I would prefer to have also kept my wide angle Tokina 11-16 for events with flash because flash is so much better on Nikon.   For work,  the ergonomics on the D7000 are so much better for me, I can change everything quickly by feel.
However,  I enjoy the slower dials on the fuji and I like not being fast and being (somewhat) constrained to shutter speeds on the dial- eg,  60s / 125s  and nothing in between.  Overall very happy with the fuji.    Might try to try the 80-200 on it in manual focus
