    The a6500 has the same sensor as the X-T2/T20. You'll have the same waxy skin tone problems with the X-Trans III that you had with the X-Trans II. Fuji's EXR processing engine is responsible for that and Fuji hasn't changed their position on that with the new cameras.

    The Fuji 23mm/1.4 is a nice lens, it is better than the Sigma 30/1.4 and Fuji 28/2.
    I think it is worth to go with this lens. Body wise, XT1 or others does not really make huge difference.

    EC -- that would be exposure compensation -- no need to bring triangles into it.

    thanks everyone for their input.
    i sold all the sony gears and got the fuji film x-t1. 2 days and i am again selling all the fuji gears and going back to Sony a6000.
    things that don't suit my style of shooting ...
    1) auto iso just till 6400... i trend to shoot a lot of high iso and this is something which i really missed.
    2) autofocus and viewfinder is slow.. i tried to take some pics of a volleyball match.. and i just couldn't get the focus right.

    So...you sold all your Sony gear, then bought a Fuji setup and shot that for two days, and now plan to sell the Fuji setup, and go BACK to Sony?

    This started with a finance problem. Chasing gear is generally not a good way to fix finance problems. There are a few different rules-of-thumb that go along the lines of "90% of cameras will satisfy 90% of photographer needs." I'd really implore you consider what your current camera *can* do instead of what it *can't* do. Anything beyond that just generates a loud sucking sound (which is your money)...?

    That's kind of what I was thinking. It's your money, but buying camera gear is generally not a healthy option. We're really wanting things to come out right for you.

    Yes I sold al the Fuji gear as it was not the tool for me. I originally had the a7s along with 35mm f2.8 and due to financial problems had to downgrade to a6000. But then I thought fujifilm would actually be a better option for me. After investing in the Fuji system and doing some photos over the weekend, the auto ISO limit of 6400 and slow auto focusing made me sell it and go back to a6000.

    ...

    Oh the irony.

    Indeed.

    No other camera has the same sensor as the D500. The D500 has 20 Megapixel. Do you know any other current camera that has an APS-C sensor with 20 Megapixel ? I dont.

    Certainly not Sony cameras (the APS-C all have 24 Megapixels) and certainly not Fuji X (the old ones have 16 Megapixel, the new ones 24 Megapixel).

    The current Sony APS cameras are 24 megapixels -- last generation are 20.

    My bad the D500 is not the exact same sensor -- I had recently read this: D500 Dynamic Range | DSLRBodies | Thom Hogan

    Looking like the D500 is the same basic Sony tech.
