I've been on a bit of a journey and tested multiple systems over a short period to get into something I felt would last me a long time. I had initially hoped it would be FF and after a bit of testing the wheels sort of fell off for me primarily because of the size and bulk of FF lenses. Yes, there are smaller-cheaper FF options but nothing wowed me and I was caught in a trap I felt, either m43, I had the em5.3 and the e,1.3 last year, Fuji, X-T3/X-T4 or the various FF options, a7/r/Nik-Z or Eos-R. Just when I'd almost decided to stick m43 up pops Fuji with the X-S10;

Now I have a camera smaller than the EM5.3 with the add-on grip, much better dr, better raw options, af performance etc etc and it closes what gap there is for me between crop and FF. X-trans take some getting used to as a raw format but once you master it, I actually think there is no going back.

It's not perfect, nothing is, but for me it's a major step-up on m43 especially the lenses.

I do like the Fuji design aesthetic in their cameras, but I'd be concerned about options at longer focal lengths.  There are a lot of great longer lenses for m43.  What lenses were you using with the em5.3?  What are you using with the Fuji?
