Left Behind … Fujifilm Gone


I have done it.  I sold all of my Fujifilm cameras and lenses (13 items).  I have downsized to using an Olympus E-M5 Mark III Camera for my Homewood and personal (blog) photography.  I kept the Canon G5X Mark II camera for a just in case pocket camera and to use as a backup for the Olympus.  I also kept the Ricoh WG-60 for a rugged waterproof camera, the next flood, etc.  The last camera to go was my Fujifilm X-Pro2 and the above picture was the last picture I made with it.  If I didn’t already own the G5X and WG 60 cameras I wouldn’t buy them now since I believe that I can use the Olympus micro 4/3 system for everything I need.  Eventually I may also sell the Ricoh and Canon, like I sold the Fuji’s, and get another Olympus for backup and use with different lenses.  I currently only have the two zoom lenses for my camera, the Panasonic 35-100mm F2.8 and the Olympus 12-40mm F2.8 that is on the camera, but I have an Olympus 17mm F1.8 prime lens on order.

My next cleaning out will be to pick the few straps, bags, etc. that I really need and then to clear out all of the remaining odd photography items I have stored away.

The Fujifilm items that I sold were all great and I loved them all, but I needed to reduce the amount and weight of my photography gear and the new Olympus E-M5 Mark III is a much better compromise for my needs, and has more capabilities if I decide to broaden out and try other aspects of photography.  Eventually I may go down even further and end up with just an iPhone.
