Iím currently shooting with a Canon system (1dx, 1dsmk3 and various lenses) but am interested in adding a smaller travel/street system. The idea is a small, lightweight camera that can just sit in a small bag if Iím out and about or if Iím overseas, can be used if I donít feel like lugging around the 1dx.
I have had a Fujifilm X100 to use for a few days and have quite enjoyed it, plus the quality of the files seems good (I would probably get the X100s or XE-2 if I went down the Fuji path). But yesterday, after spending a few hours Ďstreet shootingí with the X100, I stopped in at one of my local camera stores and they were very keen on talking me into a Sony Nex 7. I played with the Sony in the store for a little while and found it fairly simple to use but I wasnít able to take any images home to look at. I did like the control system and the tilting lcd screen, and the evf seemed better (to me) than the evf of the X100.
The Sony Nex 7 has been rated very highly (including Michaelís very favourable review, but he has since updated to the Fujifilm X-Pro 1), and Nick Devlin has rated the X100s as having "the best APS-C sensor in the business".I can find lots of great reviews for both systems, but not really any that compare them, so I guess my question is, what do you all think of the Nex 7 or perhaps the Nex 6 (bearing in mind the Nex 7 is 3 years old now) as an alternative to the Fujiís? (FWIW, Iím not really interested in the A7 Ė it just doesnít appeal to me). Does it just come down to handling differences or do the Fujiís have an advantage in the sensor?
If I went with the Sony, I suspect I would get the Zeiss 16-70 f4. Iím not so sure about the Fujifilm lenses and would need to investigate further Ė I could quite happily live with the fixed 23mm f2 on the X100s.
Iíve tried not to write too much of an essay, so if you need more information from me in order to answer, please just ask.
Thanks in advance.
