After using Fujifilm for years from X100 / X100S / X-E1 / X-E2 / X-T2 to X-T3

Sony A7III

What a Game Changer!

Seriously...

Nice! If I ever get one, I'm more eager to try the 5-axis stabilizer since I never own a camera that has one. Already the ISO performance is amazing, if I can handheld like 1/3 - 1/4 of sec, that will be sweet.

Possible if paired with fast glass and proper technique.

I shoot on 2.8 GM glass and can get away with a lot on the R3 without a tripod.

I find myself shooting with my monopod more often for those times I need a bit of stability in low light.

So, I ordered the lens from eglobalcentral. It came in 1 day, all the way from hong kong! Lens is brand new.

Now, how do I know which country was this intended to be sold? I guess I can only register warranty in that country ?

GM Lenses are so expensive...

Need to question myself sometimes... You got Sony, Zeiss, Tamron, Batis, Sigma and other companies making lenses...

Can't beat the color science of Fujifilm though...

Though I don't regret selling all of my Fujifilm gear...

More fun to shoot with Fujifilm as well...

In the end... Not looking back and done with Fujifilm after years with the system starting with the X100 / X100S / X-E1 / X-E2 / X-T2 / X-H1 and X-T3

GM lenses will outlast most of the bodies. They are meant for 100MP sensors, so it's a worthwhile investment unless you prefer primes.

I'm eyeing the 100-400 GM for my next addition.

Can you guys suggest a budget camera bag for my xt2? I currently only have one lens (18-55), but might buy couple of more lenses in future.

Picked this up on special from Henry's...

Not a budget camera bag but it's practical...

Small and light...

^ I have this bag as well. It's an excellent option to carry a body with 2-3 lenses, depending on size.

Also have the capture clip and use that affixed to the bag for quick access.

Was thinking the 10L Bag but it's a little too big for me so I ordered the 5L bag...

The Capture Clip weighs down the bag on one side with the 5L bag no?

I can see the 10L bag with the Capture Clip balanced...

Depends on the lens you have on the camera. With most primes no issue and since it sits on the bottom of the bag (when on your back), the weight isn't a huge deal. Also helps with lens swaps :)

Questions regarding warranty:

1) Got my xt2 from Amazon.COM USA (sold by Amazon). Where do I register this product for warranty - fuji Canada / Fuji Us ? I hope Fuji Canada will agree to fix any issues, even though camera was bought in US.

2) got the 18-55 lens from eglobalcentral. Is there a way I can register this product for warranty purposes?

Fujifilm Canada won't respect the warranty because it was purchased from the US...

They can repair it but you won't have warranty coverage.
