Want to get down to one camera kit.

Is there any sense in selling my Canon 5D3 gear and moving to Fuji X-T1? The Canon is just massive, and I don't use it as much because of this.

Unintentional partials. Strong.

I can't catch a fish at Kroger, but somehow, I managed to catch two up north with my son. Here's how it went.
Although I've gone fishing about two dozen times in my life, I am by no means what you'd call a good fisherman. I can cast and reel a lure in, sure, but ask me to string a reel, hook a worm or select even a halfway appropriate lure for conditions, and I'm lost. And knots — don't get me started ...

Here are my thoughts on the Fuji X100S as an amateur/enthusiast photog. I continue to shoot with this thing, and I continue to be impressed.

This camera is something that you have to use and learn to understand. To call it a 'point and shoot' is a massive disservice. Like every other piece of advanced kit, there is a learning curve, and you have to tackle it to begin to understand the device. Here are my initial thoughts on the camera, after using it for only a week or so. I'm an amateur, not a pro.

Despite being an 'expert' camera, the Fuji X100S is accessible to intermediate photographers too. Here are my initial thoughts on the X100S, framed from an amateur's point of view.

Incidentally, the more I shoot with the camera, the more I'm completely impressed with it.

I have the exact same questions about the X-E1.
 
Hi all X-E1 owners. I went to a photo fair this week and was able to handle one and I have to say I fell in love, and I'm seriously considering instead of upgrading my DSLR (to a Canon 7D) go the other way into the Fuji world. I'm loving the images I see here, but I have a question. I've read a lot about shutter lag and AF speeds on the X-E1 and was wondering how it really is. I don't shoot sports, but I have a fast running son and another on the way. How is it for shooting kids? Also I do a lot of macro shots. How does the X-E1 work for macro. I see there is a 60mm macro but no 100mm macro. Please share your thought. These two things will help me decide.
Thanks!!!!

Pretty awesome, seeing how we're in an age where fewer people than ever know how to perform basic maintenance on their cars.

Just got the new G+. At first blush, looks really nice.

Photographers: Fuji X100s or Canon 35mm L for 5D Mark III? About the same cost.

Amazing camera, but a learning curve. My thoughts on the X100s as an amateur photographer. #x100s
