Re: I’m still not sure how to proceed!!

Thanks for the comments. I must confess, i've been trying to shoot a bit with both cameras, and in reality its annoying me the two system approach already. particularly now im used to the EVF and Fuji tech, a DSLR is frustrating. Not sure why! The noise of the shutter, dark VF, etc!

I know i'd planned two systems but ive just come to a realisation! I've added all my Canon gear to MPB trade in quote and had this feedback:

Canon EOS 800DLike New £335.00

Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 EX DC OS HSM, Canon EF-S FitLike New £175.00

Canon EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STMLike New £130.00

Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS STMLike New £110.00

Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STMLike New £45.00

Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STMLike New £65.00

Tamron 100-400mm f/4.5-6.3 Di VC USD, Canon FitLike New £405.00

Sigma 105mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM Macro, Canon EF FitLike New £215.00

MPB pays you (Total):£1,480.00

The only lenses above I actually use now are 100-400 and 105mm macro. So its dead weight mostly. Should I keep the DSLR and 2 lenses? or!!!

The fujifilm 100-400 with 1.4 TC pack, brand new, is £1,699.00!!

It would be odd on the XT30 for sure, but useable. I can then grab a used XT3+grip in a couple months. I'm currently reading if the Fuji 100-400 with 1.4 TC is any good and worth this drastic shift! The Tamron 100-400 is my first lens of this type, and I LOVE the results. However, i don't have a personal comparison. I need to be sure the Fuji lens is as good as the Tamron lens!

Any thoughts from ex Canon people? I was hung up on getting body+100-400, but ive realised my Canon gear can buy me a 100-400 XF and i'm sure I can manage with the XT30 for a short while. Glass is long term, bodies always change!
