The Fuji X Series Cameras

First of all I bought a Fuji X100 in 2011 and fell in love with its high quality output but also as a small fixed lens camera. However for what I want it seemed to lack that something. This has been largely solved by the release in 2012 of the XPro1 and then the XE1 cameras which have interchangeable lenses. I am now on an XT2 and feel that this camera has all I need in a camera.
Fuji are well known in video circles for their high quality optics and indeed they also supply lenses to Hasselblad so that speaks volumes. The Fuji XF 18-55mm f2.8-f4, 18mm f2.0, 35mm f1.4 and 60mm Macro f2.4 are all very sharp and contrasty lenses that I can recommend.

Anyway these cameras up until the XT2 provided me with a high quality tool for capturing slow moving target images i.e. not cars and flamenco shooting. Thankfully tyhe XT2 has changed all that and I can do everything I need to do with the XT2. The light weight and small size of these cameras makes for a very light carry-around outfit. When the 80mm f2.8 Macro is released in 2017 then I will have a good range of fast lenses for use in most occasions.

More and more I am using my Fuji cameras X100, XPro1 and XE1, XE2, XT1 and XT2. These cameras can produce image quality that is similar to the Nikon D3 or D3S but they weigh much less os are much nicer to carry on travel and walking holidays.
I have the new Fuji XT2 and with my current Fuji lens set of 14mm f2.8, 16mm f1.4, 18mm f2.0, 35mm f1.4, 56mm f1.2, 60mm f2.4 primes and 18-55mm and 50-140mm, 55-200mm and 100-400mm zooms, what more could I want?.

What's new in the D500 rumour camps

All the latest rumours coming from emails, other websites and my personal sources.

It seems like Nikon has lost the need to update their professional series APS-C (FX) format cameras e.g. the D700 and D810 now that the D5 has been released.
Instead they have released many consumer grade models (D5x00, D3x00 all at 24MP) which while being good performers do not stand up to the rigours of professional use.
My D300 is now my camera for my underwater housing so I purchased a D500 but I am still waiting for a new FX camera to replace my D3S, D600 and D800. I dont see the D610 and D810 to be any more than point updates. I need a D700 replacement or in other words a baby D5.
Apparently Nikon are restructuring and many models for release are now dropped. So who knows what comes next.
Maybe my 45 year use of Nikon is coming to an end.

I am currently evaluating if I want to sell all or some of my Nikon gear or just keep it as a full frame set of cameras that provide me with a do anything setup.
