Own XT3-Won an a73. Keep or sell?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. This is my first post so i’d Like to introduce myself to the forum.

so here is my situation. I own an XT3 and really like it. I’ve got the 14mm, 35mm f2, 18-55mm, 55-200mm and the MCEX11. I feel like it’s a pretty decent kit right now.

I recently won a Sony a73 w/ 28-70mm as a prize ($0 spent totally free) so I was really excited. I have not used the Sony at all. Brand new no shutter actuations so it’s pretty much worth open box price to the right buyer.

my dilemma is should I keep it as an awesome second camera, being full frame and great auto focus for stills. Or sell it and put the $ towards more Fuji lenses? I’ve really been thinking about the 100-400mm with the 1.4 teleconverter to expand my wildlife opportunities.

Always having a backup camera is nice and full frame as an option doesn’t hurt. But it’s a totally different ecosystem.

    • Have Fuji forgotten the XT30? The XT3 got an update that allowed it to be used as a web cam, its just had another update to upgrade its focus performance to XT4  levels. I'm beginning to wish I'd stayed with Nikon or gone for a Sony. Having said that, Fuji's own XS-10 looks great. Why would anyone buy an XT30 now? it seems suddenly very old and unattractive.
    • The 27 makes sense if you want to carry the camera in a pocket of your jacket or so. The body itself is too big for any other pockets anyway. If you carry the camera on a strap or in a small bag there's little point for a pancake lens anyway (over the 23 you already have). Note that the 27 doesn't have an aperture ring. If that's important to you (as it was for me), discard that lens. Also noteworthy: there are persistent 'rumors' about a MkII version of the 27. You may want to wait for that bec
    • Hi all I am using a Fuji GFX 100. Do you know if i am able to shoot raw on a tethered SSD instead of shooting on the  cards. Tks for your help.  
    • I've been doing photography for nearly 20 years and with each year I become more entranced by the art form. I live along the Pacific Northwest coast and many of my photos reflect that. I hope to contribute to this site and learn from the many fine photographers I've seen here. Hello guest! Please register or sign in to view the hidden content.
