I did. I had been photographing beach volleyball for the international media and used Olympus E-5 with some fantastic lenses. However, when this period was over, I sold all of the heavy Olympus equipment because I wanted to go smaller and lighter. And I was getting older.
I chose Fuji, mainly because I wanted to carry less weight. And, I do not feel the need for long teles any more. I have bought and sold many Fuji lenses, now I shall try and manage with only one lens, the new 16-80. I have read all the negative comments on that lens, but knowing Fuji, I believe this lens will satisfy my needs these days, being an old man (80) and only photographing for the net.
