 The Fuji X system is on my highly recommended list of camera systems. The main thing that sets Fuji aside from the other manufacturers is, they have developed lenses specifically for the APS-C sensor. Other manufacturers like Nikon and Canon, only give you consumer grade lenses for their APS-C cameras, while giving you Pro grade lenses for their full frame systems. Fuji has made the decision to go with pro grade lenses for their APS-C system, and it is paying off for them. Its also the only way I would buy in to a new system.

This allows for less expensive and smaller Pro level lenses for the Fuji system. Fuji has been making lenses for manufacturers like Hasselblad for years. They know how to produce good optics and have done so here for the X-system.

I chose the XT-2 for its versatility over the other offerings from Fuji. Its size with good quality fast prime lenses like the 56 f1.2 and the 35 f/1.4, make for a nice compact fast system that produces excellent image quality.

The focus system is now fast and on par or better than any mirrorless system. While not on par with a DSLR it is still quit fast. This is my second system, the one I will use for travel and events, family gatherings and any time I want a small light weight system.

What I like so for about the system:
  • Clean usable 24mp files
  • Great AF system 
  • Cleaned up menu system
  • Customization 
  • Fantastic lens selection
  • Small and lightweight
  • Ergonomics
A pro level system from Fuji, that will get the job done no matter what it is. Fuji has been building up this system for a few years now and it is ready for prime time. Recently they announced their entry in to medium format mirrorless, we will see more on that in early 2017.
