It has been a long time since my last blogpost. This has many reasons. Some are business related (a lot to do in the company) and some are personal.
The main reason for the silence and indecision was that I had to fight with myself (from photographic point of view). As you may know I am totally in love with the Fuji X cameras since the X100 came out some years ago.
Last year I switched completely from Canon to Fuji (X-T1). And I loved it - almost.
Somewhere there was still a little voice in my head telling me that I am missing something. That I am missing a DSLR. Especially the AF-speed.
And to be honest here - the AF speed of the Fuji X-T1 is fast. But surely not as fast as the one on my Canon EOS 6D and some good lenses.
Then - reading to many "negative" articles and listening to too many people (mostly DSLR shooters). I started struggling with the Fujis & myself- so I switched back to Canon. Yes - I did that. I thought that the X-T1 is technically not perfect. And I felt great after switching back to Canon. But after just a month I felt bad...
Many days of photographing (mostly personal stuff) and many more hours of thinking about my past decisions I came to a conclusion:
I LOVE Fuji. I miss it! This feeling of taking pictures. Having fun. So do & use what you LOVE!
So I am here - absolutely confident and fully convinced about my choice.
Now I have the Fujifilm X-T1 (Graphite Silver Edition) and the XF16-55mm F2.8 R LM WR for everyday use with the wonderful "classic" XF35mm F1.4 R at it's side. Wonderful <3
What can I now recommend to anyone who is like me, unsure as to whether a system change was the right thing or still is?
Follow your heart - not just technical reviews and specs. Don't listen too much to someone else's opinion.
Use the gear you LOVE and use it to do what YOU LOVE!
In my case - that is photography with Fujifilm cameras and lenses!

Finally, I would like to promise you that the next blog post again contains something more pictures :)
