Damiano is an event photographer, who switched from Fujifilm X to Sony A7III. However, after a season with the Sony, he decided to switch back to Fujifilm X-T3 and X-H1.
So why did he switch back?
He discusses his choice in his 21 minutes long Italian video, but you guys are lucky, because Italian is one of the 3 languages I manage better than English, so I make a summary of his video for you down below.
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.

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.
