For the past 2 weeks I have been looking for a solution to lighten my camera weight. My back hurts badly after a day of wedding.
So far 3 cameras I am eyeing to try out this experiment:
1) Olympus (The low light is very bad)
2) Sony (I dont like the raw file)
3) Fuji (currently the top in my mind)
I have tried Olympus once and the low light capability of this will not suffice for weddings where ISO can run easily to 6400. So I am pretty much stuck to 2 & 3.
I don’t like the raw file of Sony. So I am stuck with Fuji.
I have tried Fuji 3 times till today – XE1, XM1 and X100s and all 3 have been terrible at AF. My nikon might be a bad benchmark for comparing AF as everything is so simple on it. And my weird habit of back button focusing makes choosing a camera all the more difficult.
I have shortlisted – XE2 and XT10 to try. Lens wise will be 16mm, 35mm and 56mm. I think this 3 primes will suffice for most situations. Meanwhile, might get a 50-140 for emergency purposes.
The above planning is in the pipe and will definitely need more testing before I make the move.
