Hi all.


I was looking for a Compact Camera for June, as I'm going to Cannes (post festival) for meetings for a week, then catching a train from Nice to Naples and staying there for a week. I really didn't want to my DSLR and bag of lenses but knew I wanted to shoot stuff and do some vlogging. I bought an X-E2S and loved the image, the camera, but had a few niggles with it and the way it triggers video so I bought an X-T20. It was better in a lot of ways and I had the X-T20 for three days, sold it and bought the X-T2. I thought I may as well go all the way. Sooo blown away by the X-T2 that I am selling my Nikon D7100 and D810. I will probably sell the X-2ES but may wait till after the trip in order to do it. I can mount the X-2ES on my gimbal and keep X-T2 for general shooting and video. 


Looking forward to my Fuji journey.


Really wish F-Log was an in-camera option though. Hoping that they incorporate it, even if it requires the booster grip (which i'm receiving tomorrow).


Currently have the 23mm f2 and a Vogtlander 40mm f1.4 just for the Fuji. I plan on taking a few Nikon and vintage glass with me but want to travel light.

Tim, like  you, I'm a Nikonian. I have been shooting Nikons exclusively since 2003 with my first D100. In late winter I bought a Fuji X100T and X-T1. Those two cameras started a love affair for me with Fuji! While I won't be selling my Nikon kit, I am shooting more and more with my Fuji cameras. Over the past couple of month I have upgraded to an X-T2 and X-Pro2 and am blown away with these cameras.


Hope you continue to enjoy your Fuji cameras.
