So, when push comes to shove, if you only had one camera (system) what would it be?
I find it quite disturbing that whenever I choose to shoot with my favorite camera system that the first ones that come to mind are my XPan II and Fuji G617. Now I love shooting them but hate processing and scanning the film files. However, when it comes to pure enjoyment of shooting, these two are at the top of my list.
I am fortunate to have a collection of superb camera systems and when it comes to digital I do find that I reach for the Alpa & IQ160, although it's a little disturbing that I also enjoy using the P25+ almost as much as the IQ160. That's primarily due to the ability to shoot long exposures so I'm hoping that my soon to arrive IQ260 will address the balance. The Alpa ... yes it has a definite mojo but I confess that I like my XPan II a little more!
I also shoot a myriad of smaller systems including the D600, Fuji X100s, X-Pro1, X-E1. These all seem to fall in to the same bucket of being very very competent but ultimately not exciting. The Fuji systems at least have some mojo -- the X-Pro1 and X100s in particular are the first ones that I reach for when I want to shoot practical digital for travel or home use. Technically the D600 blows them all away but ... no mojo. I had a D800 before and it had even less.
So, what's your story? Despite all the technical glory of the current systems do you find yourself attracted to the qualities of other less 'capable' gear but that's more pleasurable to use?
Or, maybe it's just me ...
(Btw, I just realized that I spot a trend - all the cameras I most enjoy, other than the Alpa, are all from Fuji!)
