Thanks for your telling your story. I’m another newbie to Fuji. Until the Nikon z50 came out I was confirmed Nikon fan boy. I was in the market for a mid range mirror less. The Z50 is a disaster, old low res sensor, heavy, large expensive lenses, or an adapter. What a disappointment.
Years ago I had a cheap, Fuji compact. It punched way above its weight., (E550) and in truth produced better pictures than my first Nikon SLR. So I was already pre disposed to buy Fuji.
