PERSONAL NOTES

I love the Fuji X-T1. I love its form factor. The body in your hands feels like a Nikon F3, perfect size. The buttons cannot be changed or moved accidentally, which is a must for many professionnals. The only thing that feels different is the viewfinder. Beeing mirrorless, there is no pentaprism, so the finder is not optical, but electronic. I note this, not as a drawback, but as something different, as the electronic finders from Fuji are really nice.

With a Fuji X camera, you have access to a very nice lens collection, which is growing as new arrivals are announced every year. You have access to very nice wides, primes and tele-objectives.

If we compare Fujinon lenses with the other brands we are used to (Nikon and Canon), they are obviously lighter, built quality is on par, sharpness too. Quality is there so they are not cheap.

Fuji aims at pleasing its customers, they listen to feedback from X-Photographers to make every new models more adapted to real needs.

Moreover, Fuji are releasing useful firmware upgrades from time to time, so you are not forced to buy a new camera just to update your workflow.


CONCLUSION

The Fuji X-T1 is a very nice camera, with access to many excellent Fujinon lenses. If you need a professionnal tool that is lighter and more compact than what we are used too, or if you travel a lot, consider moving to the Fuji X system.
