You may have noticed me banging on a bit lately about the new addition to my armoury – the FujiFilm X-T1 mirrorless camera and the beginnings of a new lightweight, more compact “X-Series” system.
Even my body has begun to object, I have told my physio that I am renaming Tennis Elbow – “Nikon Elbow”.
Some might ask “but aren’t you compromising quality for the sake of size and weight?” Quite simply , No. I wouldn’t have decided to let the Nikon D4 go if I thought I was making compromises. The Fuji sensor is awesome, the lenses are excellent, so I am not compromising anything at all, and the most important fact of all is that, without the Fuji I wouldn’t have taken a camera at all.
If I strip off the battery grip, put on the simple, compact and sublime 35mm F2.0 prime lens, the whole package can fit into a small bag and quite frankly I hardly know it’s there. But the important difference is, that it is there, ready when I need it. Neither of the Nikons would ever be there with me on a day like that.
