Why the Fuji X-T1 is Now My Favorite Camera! | Glori Berkel

First off, this isn’t a review of the X-T1. There are plenty of those out there. This is just my view on shooting with this wonderful little gem. I’ve shot with Canon for the past 25 years and also Nikon but in the past few months, I sold all the Canon gear including the 5D MkII and several L series lenses and also I sold the Nikon D800 along with the Nikon 105 macro and Tamron 24-70. Do I miss that gear, absolutely not! I don’t miss hauling everything around in a giant Lowepro backpack and having neck cramps from walking around with the camera around my neck for several hours. Now everything fits nicely into a Tenba messenger bag along with my 13″ MacBook Pro. Ahh, so much lighter. I bought the X-T1 kit that included the 18-55mm zoom lens. The only reason I went with the kit was because I saved about $300 off of the price of the lens. I prefer shooting with prime lenses so I also have the 23mm 1.4, the 27mm 2.8 and the 35mm 1.4. But if you notice in the above picture, there is a Voigtlander lens on the camera. What? Blasphemy! Actually no, it’s not blasphemy, it’s an awesome combination with the camera. More on that in a bit. So, what do I like best about this camera……….
