I do respect and like FUJIFILM’s cameras and devices. In my early career I used multiple FUJIFILM GW690 II Professional 6×9 90mm f/3.5 and Fuji GS645S Pro EBC 60mm F/4 cameras. Since the digital age of photography, I shifted back to the brand once again with X-system based cameras – first an X100 in 2012. I was truly amazed by the sheer quality of the pictures and the powerful FUJI colors, so my next device became the X-E1, then X-T1, X-T2 and for 3 years now I’m using X-Pro2 (while changing from my previous DSLR-system). In my humble opinion this is THE universal camera with outstanding qualities, using FUJINON optics that can solve any photographic task in a state of the art manner.
