Summary: As indicated the savings realized by the scratch/dent purchase appears to well worth it. As for the camera....being used to a DSLR for years the transition will take some time.However the IQ is fantastic and the simplicity/size and weight make it worthwhile. I will be more apt to take the camera with me in the future rather than debating the issue of carrying the weight and bulk of the DSLR.
Excerpt: I recently decided it was time for a switch from my old Canon 5D to a newer camera with better ergonomics that was more suited to my needs now. One of my biggest complaints with DSLRs is their size and weight. I had heard great things about the Fuji mirrorless cameras, so I decided on the XT-1 after considering a lot of factors.
Pros: Easy to Use, Great Resolution, Small / Compact
Excerpt: I lightened up my kit by moving to the Fujifilm X-T1 and am very happy. Living in NYC I wanted a camera that I would want to always have at my side - the X-T1 is the perfect city camera. It's light, does not stand out and is as capable as my DSLR. Actually, it's more capable, because it is my go-to camera! I use it for street photography, nature and family photographs. I have taken several portraits and look forward to taking more!
Excerpt: Love the camera. It's a real throwback type of digital camera. For the avid amateur who doesn't want to lug around a bulky slr, look no further. Awesome quality, focus, features and you can't beat the form factor. Great job Fuji!
Excerpt: Pros- --> Fast and easy access to controlling ISO and Shutter speed using dials --> Fast and easy access to bracketing, continuous shooting, creative shooting, focus point settings using dials on the top --> Focus assist is a huge plus for low light and macro photography --> Fine tuning focusing area is a plus --> Image quality at higher ISOs (800-1600) is good Cons: --> Ergonomics can be better especially with the various controls at the top --> Auto-Focusing can be...
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Battery Life, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD
Excerpt: I wasn't thinking I would be this crazy about a camera other than a Nikon but what can I say? This is the camera I spend all my time with now. At first I was just using the Fujifilm cameras as a backup or sidekick with my Nikon gear but over time the Nikons started collecting dust and with the X-T1 the fate of the Nikons was imminent. I can't believe it being a NikonGirl for over 20 years.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good in Low Light, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Excerpt: I started shooting canon with the d 10, worked my way up thru several cameras to the 5d mark 2. Excellent products, great reliability, no complaints whatever. When my old 5 d backup body finally failed, I bought an ex1 kit on sale for a backup until I decided what to do,get a 6d, or mark 3.
Excerpt: My job takes me all over the world, and as an aspiring photographer I need a system that is small enough to be packed in a carry on with a months worth of close, but is powerful enough to capture the stunning beauty of the regions I spend time in. This is an amazing piece of engineering that allows me to capture street, travel, and landscapes images with remarkable ease.
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Battery Life, Great Resolution, Small / Compact, Wireless Networkcontrol, Wireless Network-control, Wireless Networking Wapp
Cons: Flash Sync Is Only 180, Limited Zoom, Lowest Raw Iso Is 200, No Tethering
Excerpt: Beautiful camera, best Fuji X yet but as much as i wanted to love this camera (previous x100 and X-E1 owner) it still isn't good enough for me to leave my D810 at home.Battery life terrible, mode switch easily moved, af button oddly placed, as good as the evf is it's still a little tv set. I wanted this camera for travel but concluded I can't imagine taking just this camera on a trip, or using it for a job. I'm afraid I am spoiled by the images from my D810 and Sony RX1.
Pros: Beautiful Build, Fast Focus, Feels great in the hand
Cons: Af Button Oddly Placed, Mode Switch Easily Moved, Terrible battery life
