    Hi,

    I have been a member at the NEX site and the mu43 site too. Thought I would wander over and check out Fuji.

    I currently have a Sony nex 5r but am looking to explore a new system. I was set to on getting a gx7 when I had enough money but am pausing to look at fuji.

    My biggest hesitation is fuji lenses seem much more expensive than olympus/panasonic.

    Don't mind me while I lurk around!

    Hi and welcome Sean, I too started from the NEX site and has now settled in between here and S.C. Check out the Coffee with Rico's thread, it's quite a good resource for anyone thinking of shooting a Fuji.

    Thanks, Phoenix. I will definitely take a look. I really need to go to the local camera store and try something out.

    I think all I can afford is the x-e1 right now. Would it be better to save for the rest of the year for the x-e2?

    If you are not shooting action all the time, I would suggest getting x-e1 and get a lens eith the money you saved.

    I think it's really "to each their own". I own and shoot an X-Pro 1, and it's renowned for its slow focus, poor manual focus, etc.. etc.. but it suits me just fine. I guess the prudent way to go would be have a look at an xe-1 and an xe-2, both in specs and have a play with it in a store, if the improvements in the xe-2 is something you definitely must have, then you might as well save for it, but if it’s something (that is good to have but) you really don’t need, then might as well save a bit of money and get an xe-1.

    just my 2 cents

    Thanks again, Phoenix. That is my plan.

    I generally shoot family events, kids, wildlife and landscapes.

    I have some legacy lenses that I use on my nex, I assume they will work just as well on a Fuji body?
