Check out Hudson Henry. Great videos on the Z series. I had a Z7II but it was stolen. I now have the Z9. Awesome camera but heavy....

The S lenses are great. I also shoot a 500 PF with the adapter. Can't wait to go shooting with you! :)

 I'm looking forward to picking up the new XT-5 with 40mp maybe early next year.

 

I've enjoyed my X-T1 for years and recently upgraded to a (used) X-T3 keeping the small form factor, better AF/tracking, ISO performance, and two-way tilt monitor.  It looks like the X-T4 wasn't much of an upgrade and heavier.  The X-T5 looks like the next logical upgrade.  This will be my bike/hike camera, keeping the Sony A1 for tripod work and birding/action.

Seeing you using the XT-1 back in 2016 got me inspired so I picked up the XT-2 in 2017 as were leaving for a trip to Patagonia. Really fell in love with the size/weight and controls of this camera and have used it extensively along with some making beautiful prints to boot. I'm looking forward to the upgrade as the extra MP along with the IBIS should be very helpful for larger prints and IQ as a hiking camera. Cheers -

So cool you got into the Fuji world! Three controls to rule them all! (ISO, Shutter, aperture ring). It's a refreshing approach, whether you are a beginner or have been shooting for decades. Eye focus tracking on the X-T3 is excellent. I recently picked up a 23/2 as another small form factor lens to go with me on my e-bike rides.

The Fuji primes are very highly rated although I hardly ever use the one(14mm) I have. I almost always go with the convenience of the zooms. But on the other hand we made a print from the 2017 Patagonia trip that combined with the newer up res feature in Lightroom  is gorgeous and super sharp at 26"x32" and was one of the few times I used the 14mm.

I have entered the water - won't call it a plunge yet - with a Nikon z6 that I picked up used in excellent condition. I'm at the point in the learning curve that I'm convinced I am no where near smart enough for this camera. :)
