Fujifilm - Big Bang or Gradual Move to Fujifilm

Talk Equipment - www.talkphotography.co.uk
Hi All,

I am thinking of moving to Fujifilm but was after some advice on how I should perhaps do it. Replacing a camera system is an expensive business both in time to learn a new system and money to get an equivalent set up. I currently have the following pieces of equipment for my Canon set up and am a mid range sort of guy I think:

Canon 60D

Canon 70-200 L 2.8 IS Mark 1

Canon 1.4 Tele convertor

Canon 17-40

Canon 50mm 1.8

Sigma 10-20 4-5.6 DC HSM

Panasonic DMC LX 5

I am thinking of changing kit as I sense my kit is quite old and my 60D has a crack in the top screen. It still works fine but will affect the second hand value of it. I bought the Lumix to have a smaller form factor that I would take out and about but cannot get used to a camera not having a viewfinder. I mainly shoot family stuff, landscapes and like going to events like motorbike racing, airshows etc. I shoot in RAW and do some basic editing in LR.

I had in my head to perhaps get a second hand XT1 (around £450) and then perhaps one Fujifilm lens to cover the landscape part of the things I shoot (to cover the 17-40mm) and keep the 60D and 70-200mm for sport/action. If the Fujifilm works out in terms of auto focus speed and image quality, then perhaps consider trading in my DSLR and 70-200 for a Fuji telephoto lens.

Is this a good approach or am I better going "all in" with Fujifilm and taking all my gear to a dealer and seeing what they can do? If just getting a landscape lens for Fujifilm are there any strong recommendations. The 16mm f2 is meant to be a great lens although clearly a prime and expensive. I bought all my kit new (less the 17-40mm) but would consider second hand lenses if there are any out there.

Looking for comment on the above approach or any recommendations to try the mirrorless category.

Thanks

Mal
