This thread comes as a reflection, based on my "THIS AND THAT! Personal review"-threads. Since I acquired the OM-D E-M5 things has started to change. I use three cameras now; two Fujis (X100s and X-E1) and the E-M5. ------ I've been shooting these cameras in different combinations; sometimes all three, sometimes just two in different configurations (lenses and bodies). ------ My conclusion based on my personal needs: Fuji X100s This is my closest friend! The camera I always grab when I go somewhere. Due to no lens changes, the flat profile etc. This camera lives on my body and I'd never sell it (maybe change it to a X200 or something similar in the future). I love the limit with a fixed lens. And the sensor in it! The X100s is a great companion to a system camera. It can serve as only camera in some situations too. Conclusion: X100s will stay with me! OM-D E-M5 This is a great little system camera! It endures hard weather with the right lens (I tested this during a scout camp). Many of the lenses are quite cheap too. Many good lenses as well. I love the AF-speed and the IBIS! This is a practical and versatile camera body and we all know how versatile the m43 system is! I definitely need this camera! Conclusion: OMD-EM5 will also stay with me! Fuji X-E1 This camera body is not a definite keeper for me at this moment. It seems like I either grab the X100s or the OM-D, or the X100s and the OM-D. The X-E1 has not had a lot of action since the OM-D entered my photographic life! The XF35 and even the XF18-55 are fantastic lenses for sure; the promise great IQ when you nail the shot. But the practicality of the m43:s system with the speedy OM-D body combined with the great compact X100s is really all that I need. Conclusion: X-E1 with both lenses could go. -------- My question to you, fellow forum members: The X100s gets 60%, OM-D 35%, X-E1 5% of photographic action as of now. This leads me to my big question... Should I sell my X-E1 with lenses and stuff to finance an expansion of my m43 gear? The rules for this though: no more money from my salary should go towards camera gear (as I have this one year spending break!). Only sold camera gear can finance new camera gear. My thoughts about the m43 gear I would like to have: If I could sell all Fuji gear except the X100s; I would like to go for the Panny zooms: 12-35 f2.8 and 35-100 f2.8. If I'd go for these two; I could sell the m43 lenses I have now as well as the two Panny zooms covers all my needs. Of course I would not get much from my m43 lenses as they are the cheap ones. -------------- My needs could be best covered with the X100s and OM-D with the two Panny zooms. A simple setup but with great quality lenses! And my OM-D would be weather covered with all its lenses. ------------ Now, are my thoughts logical or not? THIS AND THAT! has come to this point... X100s and OM-D are needed but X-E1 not so much. Please help motivate me. Am I on the right track or not?
