    Nice read. I too am a Nikon to Fujifilm convert. I still have all of my Nikon gear because I bought it all myself ( this is just my hobby), but it has been a long time since any of the full frame DSLRs and huge zooms have left the house. The Fujifilm X cameras just keep delivering at a fraction of the weight and size.

    Also, as retired military, it was nice to read of your journey into the service. While on deployed operations, I always looked on with envy at the military photo journalist accompanying our units. I know that the selection process was not easy to be accepted into, so congrats on finding your calling.

      First of all, thank you for your service. My father, uncle and brother were in the Army, Marines and Air Force and my Uncle faught in South Korea. I have my 50th birthday coming up and Im looking into camera systems and I always lusted after Sony but Im really starting to lean towards Fuji. It just seems simplier and I dont think you need full frame for everything. Its overrated. I would suggest getting one of their F2 primes as well.

      Cheers!

    My passion for photography started at the army as well, but in the Brazilian army. I bought my first Nikon Coolpix in 2010 to register my colleagues during trainings although I have a desire to practice some kind of art/design, then migrated to canon in 2013 during design college and kept with it until 2018 when I bought my xt3. I’m still amazed by it, mostly because its compact and I can use in any occasion, it’s my moneymaker and I can’t think in another system at the moment. I recently discovered that it’s easier to emulate old film with it so I’m happy as the day it arrived at my door, looks always fresh. Cheers!

    Great article. I am also an X-nikon guy who converted to fuji 2 years ago with the xt3 and now have the xt4. I love everything about the camera from the traditional dials and retro look and all the film simulations. I really enjoyed reading your article and the way you articulated your thoughts. Great job!!!

    Absolutely amazing article.

    I myself started out my photography career using NikonD5600..

    After becoming more comfortable with photography I wanted to purchase a second camera and fell in love with Sony Alpha 6400.

    Not long thereafter I decided to attend NY Institute of Photography and wanted a travel camera. Being a camera enthusiast and avid Street Photographer, I decided to purchase the nifty Fujifilm X100F…..

    Anyways, to end this long drawn out response Im now ready to grab up my XT4 🌹

    Thank you for your amazing article and best wishes.
