Yeah I was looking at the xt30 too but from what I was seeing used on ebay the xt30 and xt3 bodies are selling for around the same and since the xt3 is weather sealed I figured that might be the way to go.

A couple from some rare English April sunshine last weekend.

I wanted to amplify that hence the vibrant sky and threw in a bit of grain for that extra feel.

Really hoping to keep shooting more bikes this year as apposed to just cars.

My trusty A6000 is starting to show its age and is doing some weird things so I've started to look for an upgrade. I think I've narrowed it down to either the Fuji xt3 or A7iii and was wondering if anybody had any input on these or another option. I'm pretty sure I'm leaning towards the xt3 since it seems they are a little cheaper second hand and I like the stupid high 20fps since I think that would work better with the way I shoot. The downside is it's a little bigger, fewer shots per battery, and not full frame but since I've never owned a full-frame I'm not sure that would bother me.

I went to two different shops on 3 different occasions with money to buy an A7III because numbers wise, it seemed the best. Every time I went to get one and played with it first, I hated it. The menus, the controls, the ergos. I would try end make some common changes and found it very not intuitive.

I would then wander over to the Fuji’s and every time, I just loved handling them. Any setting I could come up with I could find without consulting a manual.

Since I shoot for fun, the camera has to be fun. I ended up with an XT-4 instead of an A7 III. Which also make me ask, why are you cross shopping the 7III with the older XT-3? The 4 is the current competitor.

Just for price. I’m looking used only for budget and I’m finding the a7iii and xt3 seem to be more comparable price wise than the xt4.

Really? I didn’t realize A7 III had dropped in price that much. They were $1,800 when I was looking which was roughly the same as the XT-4

What glass are you considering? I think it’s important to factor that in when looking at these systems, because they are both distinctly different in that arena.

They’re still more than the xt3 but I’ve found some more locally that had a low enough price for me to consider them. Honestly I was just planning on starting out with the kit lens for either camera.

I think Sony has the edge if you like shooting zooms due to the Tamron 2.8 trinity- really hard to argue with those lenses. I have my finger crossed that they release them in X mount some day.

When it comes to primes, Fuji has some killer glass. I am IN LOVE with the 16mm 1.4- that is the most magical piece of glass I have ever laid my hands on.

The 90mm is a tack sharp gem as well, although I am curious to try the new 50mm f1

Decided to go the Fuji route and get the XF 18-55 and the XC 50-230. Similar lens setup to what I was using for my a6000 minus a 30mm prime. I don't think I'll miss the prime judging what I read on some reviews/forums about the sharpness of the 18-55.

All Fuji glass is sharp; they don’t make anything sub par. You’ll love shooting with it after a short adjustment period, I would be shocked if you don’t.
