Not sure I'd be comfortable shooting weddings with the likes of 56mm f1.2 or even 23mm F1.4.
Not sure what Nikon you use but something like 35mm/1.8 or 85mm/1.8 (on D750) are incredibly dependable in terms of nailing AF. Couldn't say the same for the Fuji lenses despite X-T3 being a rather good body.

Very few cameras win a beauty contest but Fujis certainly do.
The F2 range are about as fast as you'd ever need, 23, 35, 50, 90. The 16-55 2.8 zoom is also very nippy, if I ever miss a shot using that I know it's my fault

Had an a6300, currently have an a6500.

They ideal need a constant set of 2.8 zooms.
Can't argue with that. Thought you were keeping the d750's until they died?

Its my feminine side showing through :D

New handbag is out with more features, therefore my old bestest ever handbag is now s*** :D

Since you're not a Wedding tog I'm not sure that matters lol

I do know well a couple of Fellows (as in Fellowships not just blokes!) in Weddings who do use those all the time - so I'm good with it :)

How do you know I am not ;)

Fair enough if you are able to deliver I guess it doesn't matter.

The're some of the faster AF lenses for the Fuji system, thought you were saying Fuji was unreliable for AF in general
Not at all. Just a few older lenses are slow. They are reliable tbh just a bit on the slower side.
An update to the lens AF gear would help to keep up with advancements in their latest bodies.

I find the 16/1,4 and 56/1,2 pretty fast and reliable. The 18mm is slow in low light but the 35/2 is very fast

How did we ever cope with our MF speeds? Even the most sluggish lens I use is faster (and more accurate!) to focus than I was.

Interestingly, at the photography show this year I watch a talk from a wedding tog that shoots with various Fuji cameras. He loved all of them and produced some properly stunning stuff.
