Fuji X100T making my Nikon D600 superfluous




  • I carry my Fuji X100T everywhere. It’s in my Tom Bihn Synapse 25 backpack, which is essentially part of my body. The X100T does what I want a camera to do. I keep my Nikons around, for what? To use my 80-200 f/2.8 lens for school shows and that’s about it. I’m seriously considering selling all my Nikkor lenses and just going full-on X100T for everything that I don’t snap with my iPhone 6.

    Long, Wide

    With my Nikon I can go very long and ultra-wide. For everything else (98% of what I shoot), there’s my Fuji — the champion of skin tones and fill flash. My X100S was sharper wide open than my X100T, but at the company Christmas party I compared my X100T to another specimen and they were identical wide open. I mean identical. So either the X100S is simply sharper than the X100T wide open, or, as DavidG put it, I had a “Super S”. I don’t really care either way, because I like what the X100T offers above the “S”.

    I did use my D600 for Leyna’s Abe Lincoln school puppet show project. That was fun.

    My wife says to keep the Nikon.

    4 April 2016: Here’s to listening to one’s wife. I used my D600 (with 80-200mm f/2.8 lens and Kenko 1.4x teleconverter) to my daughters’ Easter egg hunt last week and and very glad I had it. I would not have gotten any hunting pics without a long lens as my four year old ran through the citrus grove in search of bounty.
