Photography is a passion of mine. I am not a professional. I currently have a Rebel T1i and 5D mark ii. I want to keep my 5d (which I love :heart: ) and replace my Rebel with a smaller camera. I am looking at the Canon G1X because of the large sensor size and small body. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks in advance!:blushing:

And the Sony RX series also quite interesting.

If you want to stay Canon - G1X, EOS-M (I think a mark II may be announced soon?) or 100D.

My travel camera is a Pentax Q10 - it's lots of fun :) I got a fisheye lens for it before a recent holiday and loved the results and the shooting experience. The new Q7 is on sale in the USA in September and has a slightly larger sensor (though still rather smaller than APS-C).

I've also heard very good things about the Fuji X100S and its little sister, the X20.

Micro four thirds, OM-D or the new GX7.

I am looking closely at the Canon g15, Canon g1x and Fuji x100s (or x100) and Fuji x20.

I want to spend no more than $800 if possible so the x100s is pushing it.

I must have:
complete manual controls (I shoot in manual and aperture priority)
optical viewfinder

would like:
larger sensor size
large aperture
small body size
zoom (could live without)

Thanks again

I sold the 5D II and us now a Fuji X pro1. Also have a 5D III. But since I have the Pro1 I do not use it that much any more. All ready sold a few lenses and going to ditch more dslr stuff. Maybe in the future going to ditch the dslr completely. :D

I bought my used lens the 70-300mm VR from a Nikon guy who is liquidating all his Nikon stuff because he bought the Xpro-1
I understand its a good camera only a bit slow to focus.
For some the Xpro-1 is the perfect camera and for some DSLR is the way to go.

Personally if I would get a Fuji camera I would go for the X Pro-1 and not any other model, the guy let me try his camera, I was very impressed even though I dont see myself leaving the DSLR to get this camera.
