These Guys Switched from Full Frame to Fujifilm APS-C and Are Happy About it

Fujifilm Vs Full Frame

So it’s time for another comparisons roundup, this time focusing on people switching to Fujifilm APS-C from Sony, Nikon and Canon full frame, and believe it or not, they are happy with their switch!

In the Fujifilm world, if you really want a bigger sensor, you go Fujifilm GFX, which offers an almost 4 times bigger sensor than APS-C and hence can really offer that ultimate jump in image quality, that the jump from APS-C and FF can not offer.

And before you start complaining, we remind you that we have also shared dedicated roundups of people unhappy with Fujifilm.

This Guy Sticks with Fujifilm APS-C, Does Not Go FULL FRAME and Shares a “Cure Your GAS” Excel Spreadsheet

Cure Your GAS

In times, where we are bombarded with marketing material about Full Frame mirrorless cameras, Jason wonders if he should switch to FF from his Fujifilm X-T2.

But instead of just following the hype (and the GAS), he decided to applied a methodology that helps him to decide more objectively if such a switch would make sense.

First he list the 5 most important characteristics he looks for in a camera according to importance:

  • portability – 30% importance
  • lens selection – 20% importance
  • user interface – 20% importance
  • image quality – 15% importance
  • autofocus – 15% importance

He then assigned a rating to each of the above features for the following cameras: Fujifilm X-T3, Fujifilm X-T2, Sony A7III, Nikon Z7, Panasonic S1 and Canon EOS R.

He ended up with the following results:

Ranking:

  • Fujifilm X-T3 – 7.9
  • Fujifilm X-T2 – 7.75
  • Sony A7III – 7.65
  • Nikon Z7 – 6.8
  • Canon R – 6.7
  • Panasonic S1 – 6.15

The results showed him that he can save himself the $6,000+ he’d need to switch to the Sony A7III (+ lenses he needs), since it ranks even below the camera he already uses, the Fujifilm X-T2.

He concludes that he better spends that money for nice trip with his X-T2.

Of course everybody will get different results, depending on which top 5 features you select and which importance you assign to them.

So which one is the right call for you?

Use Jason’s methodology, download and edit his “Cure Your GAS Excel Spreadsheet” on dropbox here, and let’s see if Fujifilm is still the right call also for you.

Altough I find this a cool methodology, I personally won’t make this test, since I already know that what need to reach ultimate photographic happiness is an X-E4 with tilt screen and this XF 27mmF2.8 with aperture ring.

DPReviewTV Best and Worst of 2018: Fujifilm X-T3 Beats Sony A7III and Nikon Z6, but Fujifilm X-T100 and XF10 Fail

Best Gear 2018

Chris and Jordan from DPReviewTV just published their best and worst gear 2018 epsiode.

The GOOD News:

The Fujifilm X-T3 wins the award for the best camera of 2018, beating the full frame Sony A7III and Nikon Z6.

The Fujifilm X-T3 has already been declared best camera of 2018 by many big youtubers and blogs. Check out our recent best of 2018 overview here.

The BAD News:

The Fujifilm X-T100 has been declared worst video camera of 2018, with a useless 4K. The Fujifilm XF10 is the thrid worst camera of 2018. Bad and unreliable focussing. Slow, laggy.

Dear Fujifilm, this is what happens if you put an old and slow processor in cameras that otherwise would have a very nice sensor.

The MISSING News:

Strangly, not a single Fujinon lens makes it into the list.

I believe the Fujinon XF200mmF2 would have deserved a top spot, and not to forget the Fujinon XF8-16mmF2.8 or the Fujinon GF250mmF4.

And maybe also the medium format Fujifilm GFX50R should have gotten at least an honorable mention.

BEST CAMERA 2018

  1. Fujifilm X-T3
  2. Sony A7III
  3. Nikon Z6

WORST CAMERA 2018

  1. Yashica Y35
