Hey all, new to Fujifilm camera gear and extremely excited to continuously explore new genres of photography. I've been curious about a professional grade mirrorless system to add to my collection. So I need to mention my cousin who recently inspired me to explore the Fuji "X" series of camera bodies. We are both professionals, he's done product/studio and glamour for work, and for personal fun (since the 80's) he's been doing candid/street photography. He loves the Fuji X mirrorless rangefinder and chose it OVER Leica after renting several Leica systems.
As for myself, I have been tightly focused on my fine art nature landscape work for 2 decades, selling luxury sized frameless HD pieces as Limited Edition/Open edition. I work with several calendar publishers and keep busy with stock request. For this genre, I use Nikon's D800 series and F/2.8 lenses for all my nature and landscapes, not looking at all to navigate away from or replace this equipment as they are the right tools for the job. Of note, however, if I'm not headed into the wilderness for the edge of the day shooting, going "anywhere else" with 40# of gear in my LowePro pack + ball head and tripod is cumbersome so I miss out on quite a bit of opportunity unrelated to nature landscapes.
Anyhow, after researching I just purchased a new Fuji X-T2 body and 18-55mm lens and can hardly contain my enthusiasm. I'm thrilled with the concept of a small shoulder bag, Op-Tech strap and a few batteries and cards to go out and make images that tell stories. One might think why not stick with a Nikon Z6 or Z7 mirrorless. I'll just say keywords are "after researching" and leave it at that I'm already anticipating my next Fuji lens investment, and I see myself growing my Fuji kit to get more involved again with wildlife and birds of prey photography. I've always loved the crop sensor for just that.
