I’v been using the Fuji’s XT-1 on all my weddings this year. I didn’t switch to “Fuji” overnight. It was a gradual thing, and it was important to get the feel for the camera’s. A family session is not my usual type of work but would prove for an ideal test-case for the XT1. Our architect friends where my guinea pigs. Thanks guys!
- Mixing the XPROI with the XT1 is frustrating, my muscle memory lets me down .. it starts with the position of the eyepiece, the different button layout. This is why I opted for 2 identical bodies on weddings.
- The XF56 is a beast. I never shot a lot of 85mm on my Canon system. But this lens is getting a lot of action. (it’s also the longest focal range in my bag now)
- It takes a while to master working in full manual mode with the Fuji’s. My beef here is that that dial is harder to reach while holding the camera steady (the exposure compensation dial is better positioned). Yet I (again) prefer to work like this because the consistency in exposure is greater if you lock/recompose/shoot.
- Autofocus, could be better but not so much an issue for my style of shooting.
- Most important: I now also convinced myself the results are as good as my work with my 5D MarkIII
- X-T1 & X-PRO1
- XF23, XF35 & XF56
