Landscape with the Fujifilm XT3

So I have the fuji xt3 along with a few lenses

10-24

56mm

35mm

I feel like its a cool system but honestly I am doing Landscape shooting only. So ive been debating the Panasonic S1R since used I see them for 2200. Reason is for printing and just wanting higher resolution landscapes

Anyone gone from the X system to L? Or vice versa? Any regrets?

Highly considering selling it all just putting my money on FF

FinePix S1 Fujifilm X-T3

Personnally, I would go for a safe choice with more options: Sony, Canon or Nikon. I would even limit my choice between Sony and Canon, these 2 systems will remain.

Sony A7RII and a used ZEISS Distagon T* 25mm f/2.0 ZF.2 if you want to have your pants blown clean off.

What size are you doing your printing?

Was gonna ask the same.

On YouTube a landscape photographer pitted the x trans iii apsc gear against a Nikon D810 and a gfx medium format.

This was I believe for A0 prints.

The differences were mostly for 'peepers' although there were differences in the shadows and in the extreme edges and corners. But only things a photographer themselves would really notice

Always read about 'the step up' to ff or 'I went FF and was blown away' by the FF advantage etc.

I've owned APSC and FF both with best lens type to compare and outside of extreme low light and the bokeh difference I have no idea what these people are talking about as I never saw any other difference (as long as you use best lenses)

Of course I was comparing same resolution.  No apsc has 60mp sensor of course

Agreed. Even with so called FF having higher rez, it will be invisible at 16x24...and you will be lucky to notice at 20x30. For landscape, at base iso with good glass, you need to print very large to see any difference.

The problem with posts like this is the lack of information. We need to know the print size and media. It would sort be like asking what the best vehicle is to get to work...without knowing the person lives on an island and needs a boat.

Nikon isn't going anywhere.

Thomas Heaton has made some really nice landscape images with an X-T3 and the 55-200.

Re: Landscape with the Fujifilm XT3

XT3 is a great cmarera for landscapes, but there are better. All with high Mpxl. Example Pentax K1, awesome camera. Sony A7r's. But, to see the difference you would have to blow them up to really big size. I have some lovely 30x40 inch pictures from my X-T1.

Re: Landscape with the Fujifilm XT3

There has been a thread on here where someone made very big prints from APS and FF and couldn't tell the difference. Lots of successful landscape snappers shoot Fuji. Don't waste your money. You've seen a bargain. If you needed that camera before you saw the bargain, it is a bargain. If not it is money down the drain. Are you a photographer or camera enthusiast?

Keep the Fuji gear, but check out the Sigma dp0Q, which is essentially a fixed-lens landscape camera. It can save raw files in the .DNG format, which can be read by Lightroom, Adobe Camera Raw, and others.

I don't have this camera but I've seen some very good example images from it. The lens is excellent.

Re: Landscape with the Fujifilm XT3

I've always fancied a Sigma Foveon camera but the software is reportedly still painfully slow etc.

Are your current shots not pleasing?

The S1R is a lot of money and weight (both for the camera and lenses) that should provide a commensurate benefit for you to invest.

The noise is poor and the dynamic range is atrocious!

I know but just for landscape.  They do have that medium format type of look to them

Yup I'm gonna say it.

3-d pop.

They do though man, even in the forums and sample photos.

Deffo something special

(I'll likely never get one though as software buggy and not my main type of photography.  But props to them, the photos I have seen have blown my socks off.)

The Quattro models, such as the dp0Q, can save DNG files if you install the latest firmware. So there is no need to use the Sigma raw converter, which is indeed slow.
