  1. Thanks Ken! I agree, it's the old buy cheap, buy twice thing. For this "dilemma", they're about the same price. Of course the answer is probably, "Buy both!"
  2. Howdy everyone, Just joined up and somewhat new to the X system. I've been shooting Canon for about 10 years, and became intrigued probably from a YouTube video. Liked the idea of a much smaller camera with great image quality, and loved the idea of the external controls. Bought an X100F online for a weekend in Arizona, but just did not bond with it. Low light was such a drop-off from my 6D that I couldn't adjust, and I didn't get along with the viewfinder at all. Maybe it was too much change, from DSLR to mirrorless, to rangefinder, to hybrid VF, to decreased low-light performance, to no lens options. I decided to give the platform another shot getting a cheap X-T1 used and a couple of primes. Started really having fun! Took it everywhere and decided I was in for the long haul. Used it for about 4 months and just got a used X-T2, which I am loving much more. I like the subtle ergo changes more, I love the file size more, and the video capabilities are opening up a new dimension for me in terms of cinematic video. I'll be traveling to Europe this summer, to Stockholm, Gotland, the Jungfrau region, as well as Brussels and Flanders. Trying to decide on which lenses to take, and having a hard time with the 16mm 1.4 vs 10-24 debate. I really want the 16, but the 10-24 seems more fit for the use case. But after the trip, I'm not sure I'd use it much at all. Anyway, glad to be here! Chris
