The inner debate - should I or shouldn't I

    My 2nd post here is really a debate I'm having with myself. I've been a Fujifilm X-T3 user for some time. When the X-S10 came out I thought time to upgrade. I bought the X-S10 Dec 2020 as a Christmas present for myself. Guess what, I go back to my old comfortable shoes the X-T3 for photography. And as days go by, the more I realize I prefer the X-T3 over the newer X-S10. UGH!

    Now here is the clincher for the debate. The X-S10 actually takes some amazing pictures but it's the comfort level, it's the experience using the X-T3 that makes it my go-to camera. Maybe I just wasn't ready to divorce the X-T3 for the younger sexy X-S10. So as days go by guilt sits in with the X-S10 sitting on the shelf - should I sell it? I should of went after a sexy new lens for Christmas instead of a new camera. After all, I'm a firm believer that it is the lens that makes a shot stand out.

    I tried to edit the above but I couldn't seem to do so. Rookie mistake. I just now noticed there is a FujiFilm forum here. I probably should have put the above under the FujiFilm forum

    Well if you vastly prefer one camera body over another, there is the answer.

    I take the view it is now not really upgrading camera bodies as the bulk of the newer versions only provide a small increment of performance improvement for much outlay. My only thought of anything at the moment is the 70-300 lens, I haven't jumped as it is in short supply and I am pretty well housebound presently anyway, so there seems no point.

    Yep! I agree. When I was hungry for something new, I have no idea why I was thinking of a new camera at that time. Every time I was checking out reviews the X-S10 kept popping up. Brainwashed :rolleyes:

    You get a window of time to edit the contents of a post but the title and location are set when the post is created and can’t be changed.

    Many people read the forum using “new post” filter rather than by location so it doesn’t matter in the big scheme of things.

    What you wrote - you bought something and regretted it - is something we all do from time to time, the fact it was a Fuji camera is neither here nor there really.

    If you had posted in the Fujifilm forum, with few exception only Fuji users would have seen your post,
    I have to say that you are holding your own very well in the Lounge. Keep it up. (No Nige, not that).

    Sell the X-S10 and get another X-3T simple

    @GeoffR - I'm actually leaning that way. Can you sell equipment on this forum? I need to find the FAQ section. I assume there is one but haven't seen it yet.

    The upgrade bug can be persistent and expensive.
    For me, limited funds are a good protection against being a victim...

    When you've sold the camera, perhaps, purchase a lens that you've wanted :) Or, in lieu, of flogging it privately, perhaps, try trade it towards something you want :)
