    Hi all. Greetings for a very Happy Easter.
    A couple of days ago I bought a used XT1 in mint condition. Sold my Sony A7II (didn't bond with it) and I must say I'm very happy. Finally I'm enjoying photography again!

    Maybe Tuesday I can also get a XT20. Keep it or not.
    My only lens in the 27mm. Next one the 18-55 and lookind (when money comes) to the 10-24mm.

    If you were me would you sell the XT1 and keep the XT-20 or sell the XT20 or...keep both but I must fund the lenses.

    Keep the X-T1 and fund couple primes, e.g. 35mm and 56mm and 55-200 zoom. There you have very capable set.

    What I'M trying to figure out is if the XT20 is so much better that it is worth keeping it over the XT1. AF is not a concern for me but is the iq so much better on the XT2/XT20 over the first series?

    Good on you, I got an X-T1 just as the X-T2 was released. I do have other gear, but its getting into the X-T1 and its ecosystem that has made me more appreciate photography generally. In that regard, after using it over a period of time, I don't hanker after an X-T2, let alone an X-T20 and I agree with previous comments about investing in lenses instead. There is an evil and unrelenting desire for an X100F though and its really irritating me but that's a separate issue.

    Yes I understand the desire for an X100F

    I really don't see much of a difference in IQ between the two if any. Some like the color rendering better from the processor in the X-T1. As far as AF goes the X-T20 doesn't have all of the features of the X-T2. I personally like the way the X-T1 feels in my hand better then the X-T20. I also agree with keeping the X-T1 and buying more glass. Good luck with your decision.

    Thanks. As soon as I'll have it I'M going to see how it feels in my hands but I have a feeling that the XT1 is preferred.

    Welcome and congrats on finding a camera system you really enjoy.

    I agree with the sentiments above on keeping the X-T1. Then figure out which lenses you like the best. Which will not be easy with Fuji as they make excellent lenses. Even their lowest line, the XC lenses, are good.

    Because of the their quality, I find picking the lens(es) to go with your ILC to be a real problem. A nice problem but very very difficult.

    Also, the Fuji lenses hold a good resale value on the used market. I sell and buy depending on the needs of what I am, and will be shooting. Also, once a year, usually in the winter when things are slower, I evaluate my shooting to see where changes need to made. Since the Fuji lens prices stay constant. Knowing what I can sell and buy for on the used market really helps there.

    IMO, this is MUCH more important than the relatively minor differences in the technical image quality between these cameras.

    Well now I'M enjoying photography as never before but it has been a long, long journey to here. I tried nearly all brands and only with Nikon I enjoyed shooting but then other factors came into the equation and I left it.
    Now, finally, I'M happy with shooting. Maybe because I'M an old school boy since I started in 1964 with film.

    Sounds familiar, been there, done that. Although I started with film a little bit later than '64. But same frustration from film era to digital, and trying to find brand and equipment to get the connection. And then I found Fuji through short visit in m43 w/ Olympus. And now there is joy again in photography.

    I understand you. I tried pretty much all brands from Samsung to Sony and spent a lot of money.:shakehead::eek-42::eek-42:

    Congrats on your purchase!

    The 16 MP Fuji sensor is remarkable. I have had image files output to canvas that are 25" X 30" without loss or difficulty.
