    Talking Bit the bullet on X-T3

    Bit the bullet on X-T3
    Bit the bullet on X-T3-img_20180928_175533_443-1-.jpg

    My lust for, 4k/[email protected] to possibly start vlogging and namely the lust for super-inconspicuous camera to just haul everywhere let me to go ahead and try the most proper Fuji experience rather than professionally unreliable X-Pro 1 I have and like for what it is.

    Z7 will never get a tiny pancake lens with AF and that just destroys the truly portable criteria that I had, but XT3 fits the bill like a glove with my 18/2. Fully electronic and silent shutter is another neat aspect I already like for street and club photography. ISO seems to hold up extremely well and the near-500 AF point system impresses me thus far. Continuous eye/face detect isn't a slouch either. 9fps out of the box certainly doesn't hurt either.

    My even older lust was a proper birding, and I just noticed the 1-400mm and the (new?) 2x TC. Nikon route I would've gone with 7500 or the 500 + 2-500 and would basically still end up with a professional looking tank of a camera that I could never sneak into a club or a bar. Z7 would've cost waaaaaay too much and leave me with huge 45mp files I honestly won't need for at least 1-2 more years.

    Can't wait to see some photo's out of it. I long thought about getting one of the Fuji's but I haven't been taking enough photo's recently to justify the cost of another camera, especially after upgrading to the D850 for my primary shooter.

    AFC being the only real thing to test, on birds, but otherwise I'd say! IQ at 1200mm is always a moot point, but T3 seems to pull through at f/11.

    I rented the 100-400mm when I had the X-T2 for the Nikonites/CWOM meet and greet last year. Absolutely stellar glass. Congrats!
