    I had a FujiFilm XT10 for a few weeks but I returned it because it had some aberration in the lens. I ended up getting a Sony a6000 because my buddy has one and we share lenses. I really wish I still had the Fuji, though. It was fantastic. I loved the manual dial controls and the vibrant colors. I have taken some fantastic pictures with my Sony, but after seeing this thread I am lusting for a Fuji again. This was all about 3 years ago, so maybe it's time for an upgrade.

    Haven't had issues with dust, although I don't switch lenses in the field. I pick what I want and mount before heading out. I can confirm that the T20 doesn't have issues in light / moderate rain. I'm glad I got the smaller T20. Had I gotten the larger T2, I would have never taken it out.

    No doubt this is true. I was on vacation in Thailand last week and took my camera out with me on far too few days - really just on the day that we rented a car. Which is too bad because I enjoyed using it when I did.

    A Fuji camera + lens that is small, has excellent optics and is weather sealed. Too much to ask for?

    They do two of the three, and I think weather sealing is a non-issue for all but very specific pro usage.

    Been using non-sealed cameras for decades in inclement weather (including Asian typhoons and typical miserable Scottish weather) with rudimentary protection (plastic shopping bags and common sense) and it's never been a problem.

    This is why I picked up the rx1r ii. I take it everywhere due to size/convenience.

    Really been enjoying my XT-2 lately. Finally got a really good lens for it (the Fuji 16-55 f2.8) and I’m loving that. I was really missing the pro quality lenses when I sold off all my Nikon gear. There was definitely a learning curve for me in switching systems but I feel like I’ve got it all down and I’m making photos on par with my previous system.

    I'd been using an X100F exclusively for quite awhile, but bought an X-T3 with the 16mm f1.4 on release. Haven't yet had enough time to fully enjoy it, but yeah I really like the physical controls. I bought a couple of adapters and have gotten some great shots with my F-mount Tamron 90mm macro, and an old Sigma F-mount zoom. Of course they're manual focus, but I'm not shooting action.

    I still have a Nikon N6006 in a baggie in an old camera bag stored. I'd sold a 4x5 just before I bought into the Fuji system with the X-Pro1, which was sold. Just this week I thought about getting an old Speed Graphic, but I'm not sure I want to deal with film again. Although I still have some Fujifilm Velvia 100 4x5 in my wine fridge.
