    Yeah, I've noticed that too (yes, despite not having, nor likely to have the money for a while yet, I have been keeping a look out). Hopefully that means the lens is that good that no-one wants to get rid of theirs...

    Fuji seems like a good option to be frank. I am really starting to dig a lot of their models currently. So many good cameras, yet such few money one has lol. I wish to get my hands on a mid-ranger sometime soon.

    Do not dismiss the X-T** range. Has most of the functions easily available and the important bits inside are the same as the X-T* range. Cheaper too. And still give good results.

    Between the X T3 and X T30 the quality of the images are identical, however some of the functionality is not included in the lesser model. such as waterproofing and tethering...... But it gains in lower weight and smaller size.
    So you are perhaps more likely to take it out and actually use it.

    However if you do need the additional functionality the X T3 or 4 would be essential

    I have both the X30 and XT30.... the X30 has a smaller sensor and fixed Zoom lens, but tends to come out with me even more often as a take anywhere camera.

    I also have an XE2 which has a Samyang 7.5mm fish eye pretty much permanently attached, and used for doing 360 x 180 VR pans. (you do not need a higher pixel count for this, as displaying them would be more than problematic)
    It make a nice very compact, quick set up, system with a Nodal Ninja R20 rotator, mounted on a manfrotto 190proL tripod.

    I keep each of my cameras with accessories, in separate sholder bags, ready to go. each with spare cards and charged batteries.

    The X-t10 is still a little cracker, despite being officially obsolete. Two chaps in the local club swear by them, and they are winners on the club and national circuits.

    I can see where they're coming from - Fuji cameras (I don't know if it's the way pictures come out in the end) have a certain timelessness attached to them. I found that Fuji invests a lot of their efforts in color contrast, and highlights - and that is their biggest strength in my opinion. Additionally, the X-T10 has that 'classic' Fuji look to it - and you know a lot of us are are suckers for that :p !

    There will now be a long, possibly acrimonious, discussion on the merits of X-trans v Bayer filters...


    Impression I get from that there internet is that X-trans is good for lower pixel densities, Bayer for higher.

    Why? The only historic issue I can think of was that, in early days, the Adobe raw converter wasn't that good with X-trans and the Silky-Pix converter just awful to use. (BTW Silky-Pix seem to bring out a new version once a month. )

    They didn't start with very low densities - they've gone from 16 to 24 to 26 MP on APS-C.

    Last week, I had an offer from Fuji for free two day loans on some/all of their cameras and lenses, free delivery I think. The most popular models had all been booked out but you could register your interest.

    I got that email too. Part of me says, when the current crisis is over, I ought to drop into the London store next time I'm down there. Play with the lot!

    They are still price dumping X-H1s! I must be the only person who likes it as a camera.

    They have raised the prices again on Fuji refurbished.

    Sounds like Fuji UK is doing something similar to the Fuji Canada's 'Try and Buy" programme :)

    Cheers,
