    Re: Thinking of buying Fuji X-T3 by selling Nikon D750

    I have to say I got to play with the XT-3 this week (with my job I get to play with lots of different cameras from different brands so im quite lucky).

    I had the 35mm on it and I absolutely LOVED it !!

    Every time it was tack sharp wide open, here is a few shots that I took, all lit with the Rotolight AEOS and NEO 2

    I have to say you nailed the skin tones. Beautifully lit. Are these SOOC?

    What was it that you loved about the experience? The results, the interface/controls or something(s) else?

    Which 35mm did you use, the 1.4 or 2.0?

    Thanks, these are edited images

    It just worked intuitively and the Face detection made it so simple. These were shot with the 1.4 version of the lens (The attachment way of adding images doesn't put the exif in )

    I think as photographers we are spoilt now with great cameras from all of the manufacturers so the quality is great across the board.

    I was using it tethered and presenting the lights to an audience and it just worked nice and quickly,

    I had 10 mins between getting the camera from Fuji and demonstrating on stand so having all of the dials on the top of the camera made it very quick and easy for me to be able to change things and make sure the images were great for presenting.

    Those are great. As Ed says you nailed them. So many very good to great cameras out there today, but Fuji just has that special something. Plus the 35 f1.4 has magic in it.

    Re: Thinking of buying Fuji X-T3 by selling Nikon D750

    I am overwhelmed by lots of great advices. I am still reckoning z6 or z7 as the weight difference is just 50 grams from Fuji xt3. I donít want to sell my excellent 70-200 f/2.8 fl lens that I use for landscape or portrait. I also donít want to dispose my 80-400 g lens that I use for bird photography. My success in nature photography with these lenses are much higher than my photography/birding friends.

    My concern is Fuji lenses vs Nikon z lenses size, weight and quality for bag pack on foreign travel. FF lenses bound to be heavier than crop sensor lenses.

    Another problem now a days cropping up in India, at many tourist places large DSLRs are not allowed, but they allow small cameras, assuming they are basic or same as smartphones. Moreover small cameras can be sneaked inside in hand baggage or trouser pockets.

    Small format cameras great for street photography without much objections.

    I don't use any long Fuji glass so I can't comment on how well it works. From what I have read & images I have seen taken with those they seem to be very good. Although much of this success is how the photographer works.

    Sudipto I understand not wanting to lose your long Nikon glass if you switch systems. I think the Z6 & Z7 are fine cameras. If I was still shooting Nikon I'd be looking at those too.

    Yes I have seen where some places say no DSLR cameras. A Fuji XPro2 or XE-2, XE-3 could be small enough to not bother those who say no DSLR cameras.

    I had similar thought when X-T3 came out but to complement, not to replace, my D750. Now I'm thinking of buying the X-T30 (with 18-55 lens) instead.
