A used Fuji XT-1 or a used Olympus EM5 Original?
I am not after the latest and greatest and prefer to get used. I am looking for a smaller camera esp on travel when I am using public transportation and outside the whole day. Mostly walk about casual photography (maybe with family and friends who don't share the same hobby) and cityscapes and landscapes when I have some time to myself. Maybe a bit of night streets like alleyway. I travel mostly to Asia. I have a light travel tripod but only use that at vantage points and obviously not on a busy Tokyo street.
What might make Fuji appeal to me is for whatever reason the larger sensor and I enjoy the manual film bodies like the NIkon Fm2n and the Fuji has the dials on top of the camera.
1. The Fuji has a larger sensor but the Olympus has a in body stabilisation. What is your view on the different target market of each of these cameras?
2. I like to shoot with small primes so it is physically smaller. The Fuji primes don't have image stabilisation. So would the Olympus be better in this regard? The Fuji lens that appeals to me is the 23mm F2 or the 18mm F2.8 pancake.
3. For cityscapes and landscapes I have thought about the Fuji 10-24mm how big is that really? I know it might be heavier than the Nikon 18-35mm full frame len (!). Then there is the 14mm F2.8 instead.
4. How's the Fuji EVF under night scenes like sunset and twilight? Does it snow or pixelate? Can it be used for star photography at all? Just to know and set some boundaries. I heard the Olympus might focus faster and with its in body stabilisation maybe the Olympus would show less noise?
Cheers and many thanks.
