    I suppose marketing is bs. A Fuji probably won't do a sport or wildlife burst as good as a d500 unless the user really knows their s##t, but the Fuji is generally designed for a different type of user.

    Possibly.

    I'm so sick of it lately. I mean damn, it's like people are getting judged based on what camera they shoot with. Who cares anymore.

    The purchase of the XP1 was factual ... not a joke. I saw it ... I held it (all metal body) ... I bought it. (After I used the thing, I was surprised by the film-esque quality of the images and the exceptionally high quality of the lenses.)

    For the Pro, a flagship model Nikon or Canon will outshoot a Fuji XT2/XP2 on fast moving subjects ... but then again we're also talking a 4x difference in price also. But for the hobbyist, out to have fun and capture some action shots the XT2/XP2 is fine. You gotta remember that mirrorless is different than a dSLR. There is a bit of learning curve between shooting action with a mirrorless and a dSLR. But, with the improvements in mirrorless AF, that curve is getting flatter.

    I've found shooting action with the xt2 to be more intuitive for me than Nikon was.

    Anyway, I hope you enjoyed the tongue in cheek blog!

    It was the opposite for me, I found my Nikon to be more intuitive than the Fuji cameras I had. It just shows you not every camera the right choice for everyone. It all depends on what you like and prefer!

    It's always good to read a photography agenda. I can understand why somebody doesn't like a camera. I have a hard time understanding why they insist on trying to everyone else not to like it. Wonder if he has an good deals on those lenses.
