I have a plethora of Fujifilm equipment. Here's my favorite. The original X100 was my entry drug. Moved from 30+ years of Canon use to Fuji in 2011 and never looked back.

In the film days, i used to buy Velvia and Sensia by batch of 40 rolls and liked them a lot. They were mostly used on Nikon FM2. I then switched to Canon FF DSLR. But carrying a DSLR everyday was a chore. So I was looking for a smaller and well built camera for everyday use. After considering many brands and models, I liked the X100F the most and decided to give Fujifilm camera a first chance. I am very happy I did. So far the Canon R6 has been my first choice for weddings as I need dual-slot SD cards and quieter shutter than my DSLR. I checked the X-T4 at my local shop last week and was very pleased with the metal build of it, so X-T4 is also a serious candidate.

I'll post a few pics of my X100F later.

Fujifilm cameras are definitely great !

After my film strip period, my first digital camera was a fujifilm s5000, later s9500, and my first DSLR was amazing S5 Pro (i came from nikon analog camera and i can use all my tools). I ever loved fujifilm color, from analog to actual color. 
Before to arrive to my actual camera i move across Canon 40D, Lumix gh2, Gh3, Canon 60D, Sony Alpha 7R, Lumix Gh5 until i mcome back to home with Fujifilm X-T3, but after few months i sold it, great color but... too thin... i cannot be confortable to shoot with it with ocular, my nose was too pushed against display (i'm not cyrano de bergerac), and i cannot live without stabilized sensor, i often use vintage lenses... then i moved to 😄 Fujifilm X-T4.

I will not post an image of my Fuji camera as everyone here knows what they look like. 😉 I am still in a test / adjustment phase as my other system is Panasonic micro4/3. I want to try the Fuji X systen for at least a year as I think it takes that long to find all the ins- and outs of a system and see if I like it as a whole.

So far I hate the menu system. The custom settings part was greatly improved with the X-E4 by adding settings for autofocus etc.

As a raw shooter I do not like the zoom lenses unless stopped down due to the horrible vignetting.

I like the small F/2.0 WR lenses best. Most joy is shooting with adapted Olympus OM Zuiko lenses of which the 50mm F/1.8 is my favorite, no vignetting even wide open and nice color rendering.

The X-S10 is my first Fuji camera, for me it makes photography more fun while getting professional results. I've been a Pentax user since the 1970's but I'm very happy with the decision to purchase Fuji over other camera brands.

I fell in love with Fuji and switched from Nikon full frame because of:

- Fujifilm JPEGs. They are fantastic and really useful. They are ok straight out of the camera 90% of the times. My workflow is faster and the results are better. 

- High image quality with less costs, less volume and less weight compared to full frame. Many times for my needs, I find Fujifilm image quality to be on par or superior compared to my previous Nikon FF gear

I fell for Fujifilm recently. I loved 35 mm film photography in manual exposure mode, and somebody pointed out the X-T30 which operates much like my beloved Canon and Nikon full manual cameras. Having controls fall naturally to the hand is everything in a good camera. It’s nice that I could set both command dials to control ISO, which is a dial I never had to use while actually shooting on film.

 

I haven’t tried the camera much in any automatic modes, except that I did do a series of test photos to analyze with RawDigger, sweeping through all the available ISO settings. I used aperture priority so the camera could select various odd shutter speeds, letting me keep aperture (and vignetting) constant throughout the experiment.

 

Some of the things that have blown me away which I didn’t even know about when first getting into Fujifilm: the OIS is so good it’s scary, letting me handhold way longer and slower lens settings than I’d have imagined, like I’m temporarily pinning the image to the world. Autofocus is super nice and sharp, and it’s fantastic being able to touch the LCD screen to focus on a particular area anywhere in the image and fire off a shot. And the 50 mm f/1.0 shooting at f/1.0 is amazingly selective for the distance things are in focus, almost like dropping a curtain behind the subject.

 

I bought a set of Fujinon XF prime lenses:

14 f/2.8 R

27 f/2.8 R WR

35 f/1.4 R

50 f/1.0 R WR

80 f/2.8 R LM OIS WR Macro

 

And a couple Fujinon FX zoom lenses:

18-135 f/3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR

100-400 f/4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR

 

Other Fujifilm gear:

XF2X TC WR 2x Teleconverter

X-T30 II Camera Body

 

And a third party item:

Meike 6.5 f/2.0 Circular Fisheye, a $129 barrel distortion of fun!

I shoot mostly Pentax and Leica before the xpro 3. The reason I like that camera so much is that it gets back to basics. It’s probably one of the closest in terms of reminding me of the Leica…it just gives you what you need and gets out of the way to let you just focus on taking photos. Many other companies overload it with hundreds of ‘features’ that you’ll never even use. Also they put way too many buttons for this and that. My only gripes with the xpro 3 is that the photo delete button is in a strange location and that the menu system could definitely use some work. Overall it doesn’t bother me that much because I spend what, maybe one or two percent of my time actually in the menus? Not a big deal at all. One HUGE thing I like about the Fuji xpro 3 is the weight of it. I still can’t get over how light the camera is. If you’re carrying a camera all day long, every ounce adds up

Now i need camera that don't exist - best X-E5 - same sensor that T5 with IBIS - same size as X-E4 - this make me happy - my primary camera is GFX100S, next is NIKON D810  and i use it on underwater too - because i don't like put GFX100S to housing ;-)) too much risk

And i like switch from D810 in underwater to some Fujifilm crop + for video - i have DJI gimbal too.

I still hold D810 - because his price is now between 600-1000 euro - and is better hold this.

But i am not fan, i go to GFX because is best for good money and i trust, that FUJI continue - i switch from NIKON to FUJIFILM - if XIOAMI make something phenomenal i maybe switch ;-)) - yes lenses is problem

I still waiting for prime lens 35 or 40mm f 1.7 or lower.

My first Fuji was an X30, a Point and Shoot and I sold away to concentrate on my FF Pentax K1.  That was in 2016.  Last month, I got my hands on an X-Pro2 Graphite Edition that was well used.  The previous owner did not bother to baby it.  II like Fuji because of the film simulations and a friend encouraged me to get one.

Bought the 56mm F1.2 R WR 2nd hand and waiting to try out during a coming photoshoot.

I have been using Fuji cameras for years. First an S-1000, then an X-E1, and now a X-T4. 
The main reason I switched to Fuji is that I like the lens quality. Back in the '80s I spent a bunch of money on a Nikon outfit, and the image quality didn't compare favorably to my Leica M-2, with 50 and 35mm Summluxes and a 90 Summicron, Everything seemed flat as a flounder. I was printing on grade 6 paper to get tolerable prints, so I sold it at a considerable loss. By 2014 Film and processing was starting to be a challenge, so I wanted a digital camera. I would have bought an M-9, but that was totally out of my budget. Nowadays Digital Leica M bodies cost more than most of the cars I have owned.
The S-1000, was for getting my toes wet in the digital world and did much better than I expected. The X-E1 worked pretty much like a traditional film camera, shutter speeds on a dial aperture on a ring. Likewise for the X-T4. The 18-55 f:2.8-4 was excellent. Perhaps the best kit lens ever, 'though the 16-80 F:4 gives it a hard run for that title.
Now, I do a lot of available light work, Or as some describe it, available darkness, and Optical Image Stabilization is a game changer. I've gotten good shots at ridiculously slow shutter speeds, so long as the subject isn't moving too much. I've shot weddings by firelight and gotten excellent results.

 Beauty, functionality, originality, beautiful images and optics, optics, optics. What's not to like?

Well, I'm one year in and I'm not quite sure. I have a 20+ year background with Canon FF, analog + digital. I have really struggled with macro and fuji. I have a great setup but I think the OVF of Canon is suited much more than any EVF out there for that. Otherwise I am pretty happy. I do not like how easy it is to accidentally change settings on the X-T5 by bumping and dials turning by mistake. The menus are good but a bit heavy handed. I really like the prime lens selections and IQ up to the XF90, beyond that much is lacking. The 40mp sensor on crop is amazing for cropping without loss of detail and cleans up very well with noise reduction such as in LR. 

I find myself shooting with the 27 mkii and the 50 f/2 & 90 for the most part. I just picked up the Siggy 18-50 and feel it's very underrated and will make a great travel 3 primes in one lens. 

Size and weight are great and it's a fine looking piece of gear, if that matters to you or not. Well designed.

    • Hi all. After a long break from photography I've decided to get back into it and am about to purchase a Fuji X-E2 body (which I deem more than adequate for my needs at this point).    I had previously shot Canon but could never really afford decent glass for it. But I see times have changed and not only do Fuji seem to have some reasonably priced XF lenses, there are a number of recommended 3rd party manufacturers in the game.   I am still very much on a budget but don't need much for my particular interests. Thinking a 10-12mm, a 23-27mm and a 35mm should meet my needs (mainly street with some landscapes) and perhaps a 50mm or 60-100mm later. I'm only interested in prime lenses and reckon it comes down to a decision over whether I want AF or not.   Been looking at the Fujinon f1.4s which tick the boxes but will take me a long time to purchase given my financial situation. Happy to take it slow though if that's the general concensus (would be happier with one very good lens than three average).   The other option is the MF offerings from 7artisans, TTartisans and the like. I could pick up a few with very wide apertures (up to 0.95) very affordably. But I'm interested in the opinions of those who have used and compared them both (Fuji and non-Fuji). I don't have any natural objection to MF as I used it way back for film, but I haven't shot a mirrorless digital with a manual lens and never used zoom focusing, focus peaking etc. From what I've seen it's pretty quick and straightforward if slightly slower than AF. I must admit that the AF on my old canon DSLR used to annoy the hell out of me with the incessant hunting for focus and noise. But that was a long time ago and I'm guessing things have changed (these were also very much lower end Canon lenses).   I've had a search already, but if anyone would mind offering their opinions based on experience I'd be very grateful.   Many thanks...
    • I had this problem. I toggled between the two image disp options (full screen/small window) for OVF in the menu, and now it works again. 
    • Same here with a x h2s connected to a raveneye, losing the raveneye made my recording stop 😭

    • Hey All! I'm new here and desperate! I just upgraded from my XT3 to an XT5 and need tethering advice. A huge part of what I do is tethered shoots and I've been successfully tethering my XT3 with Fuji Tether Pro Plugin to Lightroom for years. It is essential that the software can fully control the camera. First of all it was very difficult to update the existing plugin. You have to remove it and reinstall it,  which doesn't work properly.  In the end,  I had to manually unzip the downloaded update file and enter in the code myself. More importantly.  The update does allow you to focus and take photos but the settings control doesn't work. That's means you can not adjust ISO,  Shutter speed or f-stop with the software. These buttons simply don't work when you click them. Has anybody else experienced this?  Is there perhaps a previous version of the update does work? Has anybody managed to tether with Capture one?  I read there are also bugs. I'm willing to switch systems if it fully works. If I can't fix it I'm stuck with an Xt5 that I paid a lot of money for that I can not use for its intended purposes.
