Fleeing Fujifilm, Full Bore, Into The Capacious Arms Of Nikon.

by Anura Gurugext2notfori


As I explained in detail yesterday, much to MY own “shock, HORROR“, I have decided, unequivocally, that I will NOT be getting a Fuji X-T2 — a camera that I considered to be my dream camera (made specifically for my needs). The real issue, as I explained, are the Fuji lenses. They are expensive and in the main not that good!

Nikon, on the other hand, with their own, as well as Tamron & Sigma, has a HUGE range of lenses and reasonable prices. Hence my decision, at long last, to finally join, wholeheartedly, the Nikon fold.

I have nothing against Nikon. I have owned Nikon 35mm cameras in the past and we have, as a household, managed to lose more than one Nikon Coolpix compact. Plus, ironically, when I in August 2014, after a 30+ year hiatus (during which I was genuinely too busy to indulge in yet another time consuming hobby), decided to get back, with gusto, into photography, I started with a refurbished Nikon L820 (from Buydig.com). I returned that L820 within 72 hours! I couldn’t update the firmware and there was something drastically amiss with the zoom.

But the current plan is to go full bore into the arms of Nikon.

Yes, I had flirted with the idea of getting a Nikon D500. But that might be overkill.

Right now, i.e., July 27 – 28, 2016, my plan is as shown below. Yes, that means going back to 1″ sensors when I do REALLY want to standardize on APS-C. That could change.

Photokina 2016 is less than 2 months away.

Luckily I also have a book, “Brain Meditation“, to publish. I typically do not make MAJOR camera purchases while I am in the throes of publishing a book.

I MIGHT go with a REFURBISHED Nikon DSLR body and a Tamron 18-270mm!

There is, as ever, method to my madness.

Getting a Nikon P900 just for the 2,000mm reach. That will be a toy! My eyes are bad and the 2,000 will let me compensate for that.

But, one thing is for sure.

As of now I am Nikon all the way.
