    Blackrapid strap kinda solve the weight problem. When I go to Hong Kong the D3 plus 28-70 f2.8 is massive for what I'm shooting. The XT1 and my 18 and 35mm will be easier, specially in crowdy areas.

    Yep then Black Rapid was how I solved the weight issues I had, right back on the Canon with sigma 150-500, top choice and works a treat - the D750 + 24-120 was light as anything.

    I've had it with both the 18-55mm and 18-135mm so I don't think it's lens dependant tbh, plus some people don't seem to see it. Rocks and certain foliage seem to be my biggest bug bear. It's a shame as I think it renders people beautifully, and skin tones are great. However, I do take far more landscapes than I do people so I have to bear that in mind.

    I wasn't being serious about the 58mm, I can't justify an outlay like that for a lens I wouldn't use much. But I think the 58mm would suit me perfectly tbh for the very reasons that you suggest (y)

    I have a nerve injury and muscle issues in my shoulders which means that I have to take these things into consideration unfortunately. I can get away with it for so long (and can happily carry the D750 and Tamron 150-600mm for half a day or so), but if for example I was to be carrying the camera every day for a couple of weeks I could easily run into trouble. I've tried just about every sling strap going and finally settled on the peak design. It's massively better than a neck strap, but prolonged use can still be an issue.

    Ah, in that case something like the Fuji setup really is your best option, unless you could find that mythical pocket camera I keep on hoping exists.

    Have considered the A7, but I'll just hang onto the cash for a while, not going to make a snap decision.

    Well I was looking forward to the Nikon DL's but I've still not seen a release date. That being said, I tried the RX100-III and G7x and neither were good enough. For me the best compromise is the Fuji and Olly. I only sold the Olly as I was struggling to justify having that much money tied up in something that only gets used less than a handful of times/year, but then I've only gone and done the same with the Fuji :facepalm: :LOL:

    Been messing about with the xpo-1 for a couple of days now - [thanks to Damien Brown :) ] And have found a few weaknesses on it, toward the XT-1. Manual flash being one, it doesn't seem to want to offer me any options to shoot my third party, cheapy flash trigger. It just won't fire it :/ also MF lenses work a lot better on the XT-1 too, it's got more options and a better EVF. So it'll be the pro1 with my 35mm 1.4 attached mostly [the other thing I noticed is the AF is nowhere near as nippy] while the T-1 will house my MF lenses and off-cam flash. For now. But very happy having the extra body. It's a lovely camera to hold and use [though I'd prefer more of a grip] - still much prefer the XT-1 though.

    I wouldn't recommend the a7r due to shutter shock (really obvious) and loud shutter. IMO, obvs!

    Had a quick go last night and couldn't see a huge difference to Adobe, although LR needed lots of sharpening. Need to test on more on landscapes.

    I have to agree, the original A7 might be the better option, it was a pretty small package when paired with the 35mm f2.8 or 55mm f1.8 lenses.
    The second generation bodies were better including ergonomics but at the expense of a bigger body.
    Once you start getting the fast lenses the size/weight advantage is less.

    Err the a7r is the same size as the a7. Didn't everyone tell you that about the a7rii when you were a Sony guru?

    I thought the shutter shock problem was blown out of all proportion? My first Em5-II had shutter shock so I sent it back, the second one was just fine. It's a weird phenomenon o_O

    It might have been slightly blown out of proportion but the problem did exist under certain conditions.
    For landscapes you can always use a tripod to mitigate any shutter shock on the original A7R.

    Nice when things go quickly - thats the XT2 + Grip gone and the Samyang 12mm reserved.

    Just the 56mm f1.2 and Samyang 85mm f1.4 to go :D

    No I hadn't, interesting looking camera but the fixed 18.5 (28mm) just doesn't do it for me, I need a fair bit of flexibility - nice to see the APS-C in a point and shoot though.

    Was so much wanting to like this kit but now I have it in the hand I'm really not sure. Should have thought it through first, but between the X30 for portability and the ease of use of the Nikon I'm not sure where the XT10 fits for me.

    I was intending to out the X30 for the better quality of the XT10, but now realise by the time I get ready for a day out shooting, (carry strap, alternative lens in bag etc) I might just as well man-up and carry the Nikon.

    I appreciate I've not given the XT10 much time but to have to RTFM to simply find PASM modes came as a surprise. Remembering the rest of the set up is likely to require me to undertake brain training exercises first.

    I have the rest of the weekend to decide but at the moment I think it will be going back to Fuji on Monday. Such a shame really, but at least I tried it.

    Problem is that I shoot a lot between 1/60th and 1/125th and I simply couldn't get sharp shots handheld at those speeds.

    Since my trip to Scotland & the Lakes in November I haven't had much time to get out with the camera. Here's a few from a walk around WWT Barnes over the festive period.

    It's such a joy to take the X-T2 out with the kit 18-55, it's so light and compact compared to my Canon gear.
