Brand (dis)loyalty, mirrorless and why it’s good for everybody (Ming Thein | Photographer)

At the pointy end of the market now, does 10 vs 11fps really make a difference? Or ISO 51200 vs ISO 102,400, both of which are probably marginal anyway? 300 vs 400 AF points? For all practical purposes, no. The hardware is and has been for a long time, meat-limited. What makes the difference is the operational experience, the haptic-tactile experience, and just how much the damn camera makes you want to go out and take pictures with it.

Good reasoning, especially those last two sentences, for why I chose to switch to the Fuji X-T2 instead of sticking with Nikon and upgrading my broken kit to a Nikon D500. The ergonomics of the X-T2 provide a experience for me.

In a short period I am used to how the ISO and exposure dials on top of the camera work on the X-T2 and I am comfortable making quick aperture changes via the Fujinon XF 16-55mm F2.8 R LM WR lens.

I have created a custom menu for quick access to camera settings such as Film Simulation mode, formatting a memory card, auto-focus points, white balance, dynamic range, drive mode and wireless transfer.

Fuji put bracketing, video, and on one of the dials so that switching modes is easy. The camera meets my needs.
