    Hi everyone, I am just saying hello after joining the forum.
    I am a keen amateur photographer who has ( within the last 6 months ) converted from Canon to Fuji equipment.
    I am loving my new Fuji gear, and looking forward to learning from everyone

    Tony Beale.

    Hi Tony, welcome to the forum.
    I haven't been active on here very long myself even though I joined a few years ago.
    It's a great place for info and opinions right across the board.
    I'm new to Fuji too and still getting to grips with unfamiliar menus etc but they're lovely cameras and the glass is up there with best.
    In my humble opinion, all things considered, I genuinely feel that they're better than Leica.
    Oh, I hear the task that that comment has created.
    Right, I'm off before I get a right good cyber-kicking.
    Kind regards,
    David

    Thanks for your welcome David.
    Coming from Canon I do find the menus a little confusing in finding certain settings but I am getting there.

    Tony.

    Hi David, all of my camera equipment is now Fuji and now that I have found my way around it I am really enjoying the process.

    Tony.

    Good to hear you changed over, I traded three lenses today at Jessops and walked out with the X-T20 + XC 16-50 + XC 50-230mm and a three year warranty, then it rained all day :)

    Hi Tony, I've just joined the forums today, and I've also switched from Canon! I had both Canon and Fuji for a while, but I found that when I went out I was picking up my X-T10 all the time and Canon gear was just sitting there, so I sold it all!

    Hi Hugh, sorry I didn't see you reply. I too had both Canon and Fuji for a while and found myself reaching for my Fuji gear. I like the difference in weight, It's a lot lighter than the Canon equipment.

    Tony.
