I have transitioned my primary camera setup to the Fuji X system, having traded in my former Micro Four-Thirds (m43) cameras. I am excited about the capabilities that this camera system will bring.
I have always been a believer that you should stick with a camera system until you hit its limits. While the m43 system has many benefits, it does have limitations for some situations2, and with recent developments in m433 I decided that I didn’t want to make further investments in the ecosystem.
I know that some will suggest that I should have moved to a full frame setup, but I am still driven to the more nimble, balanced and light systems, and frankly, I just find the Fujifilm to be fun.
I moved to the m43 format in around 2013. Moving from dSLRs, I was excited about the flexibility offered by this balanced and light format. Prior to the move to this format I was using the Nikon D200 system, particularly for my underwater images. Before the D200 I drove a D100, which was my first dSLR. Prior to that, I used a Nikon F80 and a Nikonos V.
